I am a bit of a health freak. I don't eat meat or any refined sugars. I avoid conventional medicine when possible, because I believe we can be healed by eating the right foods. I practice yoga three times a week and walk up 8 flights of stairs on my breaks at work. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's last fall. The physician wanted to remove my thyroid altogether, but I refused. I also watched Synthroid almost kill my mother, so I won't take that either. The alternative is Armour, which my mother-on-law takes. However, that product is made of animal derivatives, which is against my belief system. That leaves with the holistic alternative, Bladderwrack. My question is: are there foods I should be avoiding? I really don't want to pay the 180 dollars per half hour to ask my holistic physician this question. I read that broccoli, greens, strawberries, pears, and soy were all bad for the thyroid. I don't each much soy, but I do eat a lot of the other things and need to know how important it is for me to cut them out of my diet. Help?
