Still trying to gather more information about diabetes and Paleo, and how they work together. I also want to start doing some research on Paleo and people with thyroid disease. If you put good food into your body, then good things will come of it. I used to wake up with cramps in my legs, and it was getting to the point where it took 20 minutes for the feeling to go away, and ever since I started Paleo I haven’t had the cramps. Also, I used to get migraines from food, too many nitrates, Paleo has definitely “cured” this. My migraines were so bad that I would have to lay in bed for an entire day with no lights or sound, and ice on my head…usually ending with me throwing up, but I haven’t had anything like that since I started. I need to get my brother into Paleo, because he suffers from debilitating migraines as well.
As far as what I’ve read on thyroid problems and Paleo, I’ve read so many wonderful things. There are different kinds of thyroid diseases out there, so of course, the formula you may use to fix it, may not be the same formula someone else should use. I keep reading that a lot of people who do change to paleo that have thyroid disease, end up getting off their medications eventually, or greatly decreasing the dose they take. I have to look further into it.
Now, doing Paleo, I see that nearly everything the general population consumes contains some derivative of soy, corn,wheat, or a combination of all three! It’s awful! I’m being much more conscious about preservatives in food, too!
Let’s talk about dinner! For dinner last night, I made coconut ginger chicken and shrimp stuffed mushrooms! The shrimp stuffed mushrooms were AMAZING! They went way beyond my expectations, and they were easy to make. I found the recipe on NomNomPaleo’s blog. I made more than enough to eat for the next few days. Yum. I also made a bowl of tuna with avocado and jalepenos-goes great on salad!
I love all these Paleo discoveries!

Real simple – gluten attacks the thyroid!
Read Dr. Datis Kharrizian’s book on the thyroid. Why do I still have thyroid problems when all my lab tests are normal. I think it is http://www.thyroidbook.com
My colleagues wife cleared her thyroid by going gluten free.

oh wow! It really makes sense though if you dissect what gluten is…and how the thyroid works. I need to pass that link on to some friends of mine.
I am going to try to make it to the presentation! 🙂
