For me I could not imagine how I would be coping if I had not been able to recover my health after my Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism diagnosis.
Well sorry for the very long pause, things always happen when you least expect them. My mother who is disabled with MS was in a car accident and badly broke her leg in June which meant all my extra time outside of work and family was directed at her care and attention and to keep her mentally strong. It is an ongoing slow process but she is getting there.
To get to the level I am at now did take a big decision as I was, pre 2010, not an ‘elimination of foods’ Dietitian! My motto was to increase food choice and enhance variety in all my patients diets (obviously not those with allergies and specific ill health but the people who required help with healthy eating).
My big leap was that I removed gluten from my diet, and I can only say I am happy I did. My symptoms like constipation and skin irritation did not change greatly but I knew it was scientifically worth the change – even if removal was to prove it was the wrong path, I could save my patients from possibly making the decision.
It is 2 years since I made the change and I am continuing with this. I feel the scientific evidence is there and unfolding at present there is not enough research written up and so I will continue this route while I await further results to unfold.
