Whole 30 Paleo Diet

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it.

Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have  aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try?

Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the
foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?

Histamine Handout

Histamine is a chemical involved in your immune system, you might be most familiar with histamine as it relates to allergies. The above handout will help you figure out if you are allergic to certain foods that are high in histamines.

To break down histamine in the body you need nutritional cofactors – iron, B12, B6, copper and Vitamin C. This is why I recommend patients take a maintenance dose of the vitamins listed above on our Why you should take vitamins handout.

Is Gluten to blame for you Hasimoto’s?

By now you’re likely at least somewhat familiar with the gluten-free movement. You may have heard that gluten sensitivity can cause health problems and a myriad of symptoms. However, did you know it is particularly damaging for anyone with Hashimoto’s?

Ketogenic Diet

A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc. The object is to decrease you carbohydrates so your body gets used to burning fat for energy.
