Gluten, Environmental Poisons, and Thyroid Disease

I recently sat down the ladies from Thyroid Nation to discuss the relationship between gluten and thyroid disease.  The conversation was probably one of my best interviews to date.  Dana and Tiffany were gracious hostesses, and the interview was more like a table side conversation.  Whether you follow a gluten free diet or suffer with thyroid disease, or both, you will walk away from this conversation with a greater understanding of:

  • Gluten Sensitivity Lab Testing Vs. Celiac Lab Testing
  • Gluten and the thyroid
  • Beyond Gluten – Grains and Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Leaky Gut and the Five Immune Barriers
  • Differences between gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance and celiac disease
  • Hidden gluten in thyroid medications
  • Medications that destroy the gut barriers
  • The nutritional ABC’s of normal thyroid biochemistry
  • Symptoms to look out for when you are naturally supporting low thyroid
  • Functional Medicine
  • and much, much more…

If you suffer with thyroid disease, make sure to visit Thyroid Nation on Facebook or on the web for lots of great information and support

    Dear Dr Osborne,

    I have been a fan of yours for some time now but this interview took it to a whole other level! Do you have a list of functional medicine doctor’s who have trained with your same level of expertise? I respect and applaud you for being one of the few doctor’s who truly want to help your patient so much you strive to “fire” them. Thank you for your dedication, time and passion for helping to educate so many. Best regards to you and your family–you must have an awesome wife…… so nice of you to give her credit. Sincerely, Donna

    Dear Dr. Osborne,

    Do you recommend adding K2 with super doses of vitamin D? I listened to a podcast with Dr. Kate Rheume-bleue and she talks about how high dosed of vitamin D can cause calcification within the cardiovascular system even over a relatively short duration such as a few months. So would K2 be necessary with high doses of D over a few days given the short duration? Or would the normal daily dose of K2 be fine for this?

      Understand that I don’t recommend long term high dose vitamin D. I recommend a 9 day high dose schedule to help as an immune system booster during the Fall and mid Winter. You can read about this protocol here < <<

      During this time you should be consuming foods that are rich in vitamin K – i.e. fats, green leafy vegetables, and liver. Make sure that you also have a handle on good bacteria flora as about 60% of your vitamin K is produced by good bacteria in your GI tract.
      All the best,
      Dr. O

        Thank you for your reply. I understand that K1 can be obtained from leafy greens but not K2, as it is found in stranger places like goose liver, natto, ghee, and bugs so it is harder to obtain from diet alone. I’m looking forward to trying this Vitamin D protocol. My son just started pre-school and the upper respiratory infections are starting to blur together in one seemingly continuous illness for the whole family. The netti pot and xylitol nasal spray are holding the front line against secondary opportunistic infection so far… I hope the Vit D will be the much needed reinforcements in this epic battle… *sigh* Thanks again! – SRiddle

    I’d love to get the transcripts from this interview, it would help me to convince my family and friends that they might want to consider that many of their symptoms and diagnoses are related to what’s being discussed in this interview. I’ve tried so many times and failed but if they heard or read the transcripts themselves I’m sure they would hear bells going off when Dr Osborne spells it out to them.
