      What Mercury Exposure Has to Do with Hashimoto's

      Stumbled upon this noteworthy piece from the Thyroid Pharmacist and thought that we would share it. Dr. Izabella Wentz titles it Mercury Mercury Exposure and Hashimoto's.

      It offers us some fascinating ideas. This one was particularly thought-provoking:

      Mercury can deplete the body of selenium, a vital nutrient required in the synthesis of thyroid hormone. We know that most people with Hashimoto’s will be found to have selenium deficiency, and that this is a widely recognized trigger of autoimmune thyroid conditions.

      Give the rest of this remarkable piece of writing a read for more information and context.

      Best Protein Sources for Hashimoto's

      Here's a fascinating article from the Thyroid Pharmacist. It's called Which Protein is Safe for Hashimoto's.

      It shares some excellent insights. Rootcolog Al Paleo looks particularly interesting:

      Most protein powders on the market contain soy and dairy, which are two very reactive proteins for people with Hashimoto’s. While egg white proteins are also an option and can be less reactive, unfortunately, those with Hashimoto’s who start using them often find themselves with new onset egg reactions, because egg whites are difficult to digest for people with intestinal permeability.

      Here's an interesting article from the Thyroid Pharmacist. It's called Using a Ketogenic Diet with Hashimotos.

      It offers some fascinating insights. This one's particularly thought-provoking:

      I have personally seen positive outcomes in my clients and myself, through eating a lower-carbohydrate, higher-fat diet, and have heard of others seeing improvements in their thyroid health while trying a keto diet. However, I’ve also seen negative outcomes for other people, who were not my personal clients, with the keto diet. It’s important to consider that diet is not a one-size-fits-all approach to healing, and that it should be ...

      Blood Sugar Management and Hashimoto's

      We found this interesting article by Dr Izabella Wentz titled Why Balancing Blood Sugar is Vital for Hashimoto’s Health.

      One point in particular that we found interesting was:

      Research has shown that up to 50 percent of those with Hashimoto’s have a carbohydrate intolerance. This means that when a high-carbohydrate meal is consumed, our blood sugar levels are more likely to spike quickly, leading to low blood sugar levels (reactive hypoglycemia), as well as feelings of nervousness, lightheadedness, anxiety, and fatigue.

      We came across this interesting article by Dr Izabella Wentz called Solutions to Increase Low Libido in Those With Hashimoto’s and we thought that we should share it here.

      In it, she offers some fascinating nuggets of wisdom. One such nugget is this one:

      When using hormonal birth control pills, a woman’s production of natural estrogen and progesterone become suppressed. Levels of testosterone and DHEA (our two libido supporting hormones) also get suppressed, and ovulation basically turns off. This can cause a lot of side effects such as low libido, as well as a variety of hormone imbalances ...

      Eat Veggies Despite Hashimoto's

      We came across this article from Dr. Izabella Wentz that we thought to be very interesting. So we though that we would share it.

      One particular point that we found so fascinating was:

      In some cases of hypothyroidism, an indigestible ball of plant fiber material known as a phytobezoar, which is formed out of undigested vegetable fibers, has been found to cause bowel obstruction. These masses of undigested material commonly consist of vegetable fibers from pulpy fruits, orange pits, seeds, roots and leaves, but can be formed from any indigestible food fibers.

    18. The Thyroid and Formaldehyde Connection

      The Thyroid and Formaldehyde Connection

      While doing some initial fact finding for the Hashimoto’s Protocol book back in 2015, I came across some research suggesting that formaldehyde could have a negative effect on the thyroid gland. This was new information to me, but I was not surprised, as any toxin in great amounts can have an adverse reaction on our thyroid gland, which is our very own environmental sensory gland. However, some people may be ultra sensitive to formaldehyde, even at small levels.

    19. Thyroid Antibodies Part 2: Mechanisms to Reduce Thyroid Antibodies - DR. IZABELLA WENTZ, PHARM D -

      In my view, knowing your antibody numbers early on is a better screening test than knowing your TSH level. Thyroid antibodies are going to be the first indication of a thyroid problem in many cases. They can be elevated for as many as 10-15 years before a change in TSH is even detected. The presence of thyroid antibodies also means that there is an active destruction going on against your thyroid. The antibodies test is an easy test to do. Part 1 tells you what test you need to do and how to interpret the results.
