  1. Hi, AA. Just wanted to say, I commiserate, as someone whose body seems to attack me out of the blue and leave me reeling. You, like me, are most probably tired of trying to read piles of material in order to glean a solution for yourself from books. However, nevertheless a book that is worth a look-see is named: HOSHIMOTO'S THYROIDITIS -Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause, by Izabella Wentz (a Pharmacist who set out to heal herself when she got little relief from mainstream doctors' treatments. Good information on Celiac Disease. (Author explains how some people have both Hoshimoto's Thyroiditis, along with Celiac Disease - even if the doctor's labs show normal numbers for the thyroid.) Personally, the main things that work for me with the thyroiditis, is sticking to a Paleo, glutenfree diet , eating wild-caught cod, and shrimp a few times a week. Staying away from soy, even as a preservative in vitamins; and trying to get regular sleep using melatonin and chamomile tea when sleep doesn't come. Also, taking a d-3 supplement, as its impossible to get it from the sun this time of year (definitely another energy robbing piece of the puzzle). Supposedly, most with low-thyroids also run low on selenium, minerals, B-12 and iron. The most frustrating thing is that the related food allergies can be different for everyone. I also stay away from fluoride as much as possible, as fluoride is a culprit that takes up the thyroid receptors of the body, as they have a similar chemical makeup. Without the thyroid hormone the body's normal creation of enzymes for digestion further reduce our nutrition absorption, while also preventing the conversion of t-3's to t-4's to energy. Lot of work there to just even reducing fluoride intake.......drinking spring water helps me with a lot less aches and pains at night, guess it helps me detox better, and avoid the fluoride in our regular water supply. (They even have floruide filters for the shower! (I haven't gone that far with it yet). ) At any rate, "Hang in there". So, will I. Share anything that helps you if not mentioned above. (I do remember something about the "keto" diet looking interesting. I'll revisit that - Thanks!) Have a good evening.
