Hi Diane,
Nice post. I too have Hashimotos. I was dignosed with hypothyroidism quite a while back, but just a few months ago the diagnosis for Hashimotos was given. I also have a couple of small nodules on my thyroid revealed by an ultra sound test. Sadly, instead of getting the help I needed, regular doctors just put me on anti-depressants, sleeping pills, and anti-anxiety drugs, all of which made things much worse. I haven’t taken any medication for Hashimotos at all, thinking I could figure out the under-lying cause and it would go away. Needless to say, I’ve been walking around with Hashimotos for a really long time now, and it’s a very, very miserable existence Frown I started on a traditional gluten free diet a while back, but just recently decided to get serious and go true gluten free. I’ve been following the Paleo Diet about 90-95% of the time, but it’s time to move that up to 100% if I ever truly want to get well. I had a test done by ALCAT to determine foods I’m sensitive to, so I could remove them from my diet. The list was very long, and I’m sure gluten had a lot to do with it. I’m also following the Jeff McCombs plan for dealing with Candida, and have done lots of cleanses, like liver, parasites, metals, etc. Until I cut out all grains though, I probably will never get better. I also need to get on Naturethroid or Armour for now until I can get better, or I will never feel good again. Thanks for the info on Dr. Datis Kharrazian’s website. This makes perfect sense to me now.

Best wishes to you in your quest for healing.

Jeff
