Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis 101: This is a very poor article to read if you want to know about this disease.

Dr.Guttler’s comments.

1.I will list what is bogus about his article.

2. “To give you an idea of how bad it was, your thyroid should be between 2-3, and mine was at 4”.

3. TSH of 4 is not hypothyroidism.You can not be sick with a 4! She said she was severely sick.

4.No indication for iodine and selenium levels.

5.”I would look into T4 and T3 therapy and desiccated thyroid options. An integrative doctor will provide valuable guidance.”

6. T3 therapy and desiccated thyroid are not indicated for hypothyroidism.

7. “An integrative doctor will provide valuable guidance.” You need an endocrinologist not one of these.

8.”But I was determined to adopt a holistic approach to my healing”. You can not heal your
Hashimoto’s  with holistic  medicine, only with an endocrinolgist using T4.

9. “Consider your gluten intake: Experts say gluten can trigger thyroid diseases, especially Hashimoto’s.” There is no such relation between gluten and thyroid disease.

10.”My thyroid-healing meal plan” is all wrong.”Add seaweed to dulse flakes to your meals” Seaweed is not indicated as it causes worsening hypothyroidism, goiter growth, nodules and stimulates thyroid cancer growth.

11.”I discuss more detail of my thyroid journey in my second book, Living the HealthyLife. I’ve also outlined a thyroid-healing plan in my 8-week Online Program.”

12 As usual there is a money motive for such bad advice.

13. Visit an endocrinologist.

Jessica Sepel ”How I won my secret battle with Hashimoto’s disease’

Clinical nutritionist Jess Sepel reveals the meal plan and protocols that helped heal her thyroid.

Jessica Sepel

It was only a few years ago that I was secretly struggling with a thyroid condition.

I was on holidays in South Africa when I noticed a few symptoms that were unlike me; I was puffy, fatigued, irritable and experienced unexpected weight gain. When I arrived home in Sydney, I went straight to my doctor to get a blood test.

Soon enough, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition where your immune system starts attacking your thyroid. This condition is associated with low thyroid function, which is known as hypothyroidism. To give you an idea of how bad it was, your thyroid should be between 2-3, and mine was at 4.4.

When I received the diagnosis, I was dumbfounded. Here I was, a clinical nutritionist and health nut. How could my body have failed me like this? It brought back feelings of hating my body and my past struggles with food. But I was determined to adopt a holistic approach to my healing.

Naturally, I started searching for answers. As with many forms of chronic illness, there are plenty of mixed messages and lots of misinformation around, which makes it hard to know where to turn.

There were no definitive answers on what causes Hashimoto’s, so I set out to do my own research.

Common symptoms of an underactive thyroid

Here are some common symptoms of an underactive thyroid:

  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Easy weight gain
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Low mood
  • Sensitivity to the cold
  • Stiff or achy joints
  • Muscle soreness

My thyroid-healing protocols:

  • Check your TSH, T3, T4, thyroid antibodies, iodine and selenium levels: This will give you a really strong picture as to how your thyroid is functioning.
  • Consult a healthcare professional: It’s important to seek the guidance of a doctor to help you determine the right treatment and medication, if required. If medication is required, I would look into T4 and T3 therapy and desiccated thyroid options. An integrative doctor will provide valuable guidance.
  • Take care of your stress levels: High cortisol levels can reduce the conversion of T4 to T3, which is essential.
  • Get more rest: It’s important to get to bed early and get eight hours of sleep every single night. This supports the adrenals, which has a flow-on effect for the thyroid.
  • Take care of your hormones: High oestrogen can interfere with thyroid hormone production. Your doctor can guide you on a protocol for this.
  • Watch your vitamin D levels: This plays a role in immunity, and low vitamin D levels are associated with autoimmune conditions.
  • Consider your gluten intake: Experts say gluten can trigger thyroid diseases, especially Hashimoto’s.

My thyroid-healing meal plan:

  • Eat brassica vegetables well-cooked: This includes broccoli, kale,cauliflower and Brussels sprouts
  • Eat three to four Brazil nuts each day
  • Add seaweed to dulse flakes to your meals
  • Sprinkle Himalayan or Celtic sea salt into your meals
  • Avoid grains for four weeks and note changes
  • Avoid dairy for four weeks and not changes
  • Avoid soy for four weeks and not changes
  • Limit your intake of fish that’s high in mercury
  • Limit one coffee a day before 10am

I discuss more detail of my thyroid journey in my second book, Living the HealthyLife. I’ve also outlined a thyroid-healing plan in my 8-week Online Program.

Thyroid healing

First and foremost, if you suspect you have a thyroid condition, it’s essential to contact a healthcare professional and undergo a range of testing to determine how your thyroid is functioning.

Treatment will differ for every case, but here are some very effective principles I found to work:

My thyroid-healing protocols:

  • Check your TSH, T3, T4, thyroid antibodies, iodine and selenium levels: This will give you a really strong picture as to how your thyroid is functioning.
  • Consult a healthcare professional: It’s important to seek the guidance of a doctor to help you determine the right treatment and medication, if required. If medication is required, I would look into T4 and T3 therapy and desiccated thyroid options. An integrative doctor will provide valuable guidance.
  • Take care of your stress levels: High cortisol levels can reduce the conversion of T4 to T3, which is essential.
