The Thyroid is a very complex gland, intertwined with many other organs and hormone-producing glands

and as much as, from a simplistic perspective, we want to just focus on the thyroid, in truth, this

is NOT enough.

And, I have learned it the hard way: after many years of trying different things, I'm finally

putting the pieces together and calling it the "Thyroid Diet Plan".

You know, I wish there were two different words to say what I want to say; one for "diet" when you

would do just about anything to lose weight and another for a nourishing food change that will bring

healing and joy. Oh well... But you know when I say "diet" I mean a protocol, a way of being, living

and eating that will free you from some/all of the fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight yo-yos, and

infertility that have plagued you for some time now. And it's a change for life you will love so

much that you will never want to go back.
If you are watching this video, it's probably because you have tried a thing or two with some or

little results and you are therefore hoping to hear more.

Before I go on, it's key to know (and most people do not realize this as doctors don't have the time

to explain things) that 90% of hypo- and hyperthyroidism results from an autoimmune disorder. It

means that your immune system started attacking the thyroid. Since the immune system resides in the

gut, or our intestine, a lot of what I will talk about here is about rebuilding the digestive


To explain the Thyroid Diet, let me talk about 3 pillars. I developed these, while asking myself

these key questions:

Let's talk about Pillar 1: REMOVING
The first thing to remove are SUGAR FLUCTUATIONS
This means sugar, carb cravings, hypoglycemia or insulin resistance and normalizing these first is

key. Without fixing your sugar issues, your thyroid will never improve. Cutting out sugars cold

turkey produces mixed results and people often crash and go back to binging. But, there are ways to

do it by introducing the right micronutrients.

OK, the second thing to remove are FOOD INTOLERANCES
Do you see "gluten-free", "dairy-free" popping up at the health stores today? This is because many

people get off the "big five"; gluten, dairy, corn, eggs and soy and experience significant changes.

To find the culprits, I always start off with an Elimination Diet and this produces clear, unbiased

results. You can also get a blood test done but they are not as accurate. Gluten is an infamous food

if you have a thyroid condition and eliminating it is key. However, often times, you would need to

cut out more than just gluten.

The third thing to do is FIX YOUR DIGESTIVE TRACK (aka GUT)
As mentioned earlier, most thyroid conditions are auto-immune diseases. There are tons of

lymphocytes and other immune cells in the gut, which protect the body from viruses, bacteria, and

other invaders. This is why most people with thyroid conditions also experience frequent digestive

issues. A diet change will help your gut tremendously.

The fourth thing is: we need to REDUCE TOXICITY
This means detoxing your liver and gut because without a well functioning liver and gut, your

thyroid will never regain its health. Here, I'm also talking about getting rid of the toxins hiding

around your kitchen and bathroom as they are known to be endocrine disruptors. Water toxicity is

HUGE in thyroid conditions; it's key to get rid of substances that inhibit the thyroid function.

The Fifth thing to do is to ADRESS STRESS and ADRENAL FATIGUE
This is huge topic, especially with women. You won't be able to fix your thyroid without fixing the

adrenals and the chronic stress you are experiencing.

The sixth thing is simple: temporarily REMOVE GOITROUS FOOD; Goiter is a substance that slows down

the thyroid. It is found in bok choy, broccoli, Brussels' sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, soy,

soy milk, and tofu just to name a few. Cooking them reduces their goitrous properties but you should

still limit them in the recovery phase.
