Long time no input, but things are going great! I have recently (in the last three months) made a fantastic discovery and I feel wonderful! In my opinion diet is one of the answers to our modern day illnesses.

I discovered that people with Hypothyroid can also have gluten or lactose intolerance. I have been following the Paleo(caveman) diet, the weight as just fallen off!  I also have a lot more energy and I am back into my pre illness clothes. It makes so much sense. The Paleo diet consists of eating meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, plants, nuts and seeds, but nothing that is processed, foods without modern food techniques, chemicals and preservatives. 'Simples!' It is based on the foods available to our hunter gatherer ancestors, foods found in nature.  

It really does work and it's so easy to follow, you have nothing to loose, but the weight in pounds and the weight of your shoulders put on us by the modern polluted world we now live in! Give it a try I can not recomend it highly enough.

Live well and long!  Denise

  • Hi Denise,

    Great to see you back on the site. Thanks for sharing your experiences of the Paleolithic diet diet with us.

    I'm sorry if I didn't point out the connection between hypothyroidism and food allergies/intolerances when you were last here. Food allergies may increase the chances of the body also making antibodies that attack its own tissues...the thyroid being a common victim. Food intolerances severely interfere with the absorption of nutrients amongst other things and this will obviously affect nutrients required for the production and function of thyroid hormones e.g. iodine, selenium, zinc, tyrosine.

    It's worth mentioning that the Paleo diet could help you lose weight and give you more energy by other mechanisms...most notably by reducing total calorific intake and helping to maintain stable blood glucose levels.

    In the end though the most important thing is that you feel better so it's great that you discovered the diet! There are a few articles about it here if you search the site for "stone age diet".

    Thanks again for updating us and here's to a healthy future living on a healthy diet from the past ;)
