In my last post, I explained that TSH or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is produced by the pituitary gland and its job is to tell the thyroid gland to pump out thyroid hormone – T4 (along with a little T3 but mostly T4).
T4 (thyroxine) is the inactive form of thyroid hormone. When the body is nourished […]
I have spent the last couple of months buried deep in all things thyroid, lectures, books, testing. WOW, the thyroid is amazing, it’s the bodies “option” key. I remember someone saying that the “option” key on the keyboard makes everything better, hold down the option key and all kinds of good stuff happens, well that’s […]
In my previous post, Aches, Pains, Nightshade? I mentioned that the toxic buildup from nightshades might be at the root of your unexplained body issues. I don’t feel like I gave a very complete list of edible nightshades so that’s what I’m going to do here.
Common Edible Nightshades: Potatoes (except Sweet Potatoes) Tomatoes Tomatillos Peppers […]
I just read an article outlining all the ways nightshades could secretly be driving you crazy. I tend to click on articles about nightshades since my husband and I just finished a month of eating without nightshades. For the most part I’d say the results were somewhat inconclusive, meaning we didn’t really notice any changes during […]
It’s still January and we are still 100% autoimmune paleo. I’m going to share one of the recipes that we loved the first time we made it so have continued to make it all month. It’s a simple chicken stir-fry. I told you I’d have pictures and I do. I also just installed new recipe-card […]
It’s January 12th and we are well into our month of eating autoimmune paleo. The cookbook I mentioned in my first post, The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook is great. Having a new cookbook/recipes is always a great way to rev up my cooking motivation. We’ve been doing lots of weekend cook ups. Well, […]
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s January already. This is my first winter in northern California and so far so great. I grew up and raised my kids in New England and then spent the last handful of years in Chicago, including last winter where I had the pleasure of enjoying the “polar vortex”. […]
Don’t let the phrases “eat organic” and “avoid GMOs” settle quietly into the every expanding hum of your life’s background noise. I am guilty of this. Everything I read, all the people in the nutrition/medical world that I respect and follow through books and social media talk endlessly about the health benefits […]
I read a blog post a while back about nutmeg and how it can actually make you sick. It was a first person account of nutmeg poisoning. Here is a link to the post if you want to read it. I can’t remember when I read this but I have thought about […]
Happy Saturday after Thanksgiving!! We were lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving with some favorite family members that we don’t see very often. It’s always so fun and always, always makes us scan the calendar for an opportunity to visit before a year or two or even three (in this case) passes. This is the year […]
