Thyroid conditions

It is interesting to note the recent increase in women with "Hashimotos" ( thyroid autoimmune disease). Many of these women respond to a gluten free diet along with supplementing key minerals like selenium & zinc.

There are some authors who suggest avoiding iodine supplements in the most active phase of the immune response as it is like adding fuel to the fire. Green smoothies and the zinc, selenium minerals along with removal of the gluten grains: wheat, barley, oats & rye seems effective in helping calm the immune process.
