An adrenal saliva test can measure Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism progress

It's a constant refrain: We're too stressed out. But how stressed out are we really? An adrenal saliva test can tell you whether your cortisol (the stress hormone) is too high or too low, whether your circadian rhythm (the sleep-wake cycle) is normal, and also pin point the cause of your symptoms: adrenal fatigue or [...]

Under attack from toxins? Learn how to protect your thyroid

Do you feel toxic chemicals are out to get you? Studies link many chronic health conditions, including Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, with toxic chemicals in our everyday environment. Man-made chemicals, pesticides, pollution, plastics, and heavy metals are a normal part of life for us all. Even radiation fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan is now [...]

Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism spiking your allergies? Look at gut function

Do beautiful spring days have you cooped up inside, sneezing and sniffing miserably? Did your allergies kick in or get worse after your Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism condition developed? Before reaching for the antihistamines, consider the role your gut health plays in both allergy symptoms and Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. As with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, allergies actually begin long before [...]

Most gluten tests fail those with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism

Gluten intolerance is not as straightforward as once believed. Many people test negative for gluten intolerance when, in fact, they have celiac disease or should be on a gluten-free diet. This is because standard tests are incomplete and fail to account for gluten cross-reactivity. This can be disastrous for the person with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. A [...]

Not just for children: Using play for Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism

While the importance of play for children is well understood, many don't realize it's a necessary form of stress relief for adults, making it a useful tool in the management of Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. One also could argue it's the most enjoyable part of a Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism protocol—say compared to giving up donuts or eating more [...]

You never know when those persistent Hashimoto’s hypothyroid symptoms might save your life. An autoimmune thyroid disease is a warning signal the body is out of balance. By managing your Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism with nutritional and lifestyle interventions, you may prevent cancer as well. Carrying the genes for cancer doesn't make it a sure thing—a recent [...]

Can't sleep? Turn the lights off earlier for better thyroid health

Can't fall asleep? You may need to turn the lights off earlier. Studies show exposure to light after dusk, particularly light from computer screens, iPads, iPhones, televisions, and other electronic items, significantly inhibits the production of melatonin, your body's sleep hormone. For the person with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, this is important as appropriate melatonin production helps [...]

When a gluten-free diet is not enough for Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism

For many people, a gluten-free diet erases Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism symptoms   like a magic wand. For others, it doesn’t make a dent, despite a proven gluten intolerance. What gives? A diet that also eliminates dairy, grains, and other foods may be necessary, along with nutritional compounds to restore gut health. Gluten damages the small intestines and [...]

Fight Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism with glutathione recycling

The term "antioxidant" has become popular in a multitude of products from acai to dark chocolate, but the most important antioxidant is the one made by your body: glutathione. Sufficient glutathione is vital for combating autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. Glutathione is a molecule that protects the body in many ways. It shields cells [...]

A recent study found a diet high in trans fats shrinks the brain and increases the risk of dementia, making them a poor choice for people with Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism. The brain depends on proper thyroid function, and a brain-healthy diet is paramount for people with Hasimoto’s and hypothyroidism. Trans fats are found in fast [...]
