Thyroid disease is common for women and men—20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Many people struggle with thyroid symptoms without knowing that there is a potential dietary solution to reverse it.
Symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, hair loss, cold intolerance, and weight gain are not only bothersome, but too often these symptoms persist even after starting medication for thyroid conditions, and even after your doctor says that with thyroid therapy your levels are normal.
Low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) is related to excess iodine intake. Overactive thyroid function (hyperthyroidism) is also related to iodine intake.
My good friend and medical colleague that I highly respect, Alan Christianson ND, has recently written a book about the relationship between iodine intake, thyroid function, and thyroid disease. His book is called The Thyroid Reset Diet and is the first nutrition plan that has been clinically shown to reverse thyroid disease and/or improve thyroid symptoms for two-thirds of people who suffer from thyroid problems.
How does it work? The key is to eat foods that are low in iodine because you may be exceeding your iodine requirements through the food you eat (in addition to products you might be applying to your skin). In his book, The Thyroid Reset Diet, Dr. Christianson provides a detailed and easy-to-follow plan to overcome excess iodine intake and to help restore thyroid function and symptoms.
The book provides useful information, 65 delicious recipes, weekly meal plans, and long-term maintenance information. I highly recommend that anyone with hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, or hyperthyroidism read this book and that you share it with your loved ones if they suffer from thyroid disease.
Recently Dr. Christianson and I talked about iodine, thyroid disease, and his new book. If you would like to view my interview with Dr. Christianson, click here.
