5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Gem!, August 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Hormone Diet: A 3-Step Program to Help You Lose Weight, Gain Strength, and Live Younger Longer (Hardcover)
At the age of 51, I was hit with hot flashes, nightsweats, a 20 lb weight gain of mostly abdomninal fat, fatigue and hypoglycemia. This book was a lifesaver thrown to me. Like others, I have tried and failed all the conventional diets out there. I also have a gluten intolerance, which causes my body to make antibodies that attack my thyroid. I am lucky to have a doctor who practices Integrative medicine and found the source of my borderline low thryoid and treat it with a gluten free diet and Armour thyroid. Then, along came this book which just added to my treatment. I don't think there is a healthier way of eating out there. The smoothie recipes are awesome, and a perfect way to start the day. I always tried to eat salad for lunch, but these suggestions and recipes are fantastic.
This is not a diet book that tells you exactly what to eat and when. It just clearly spells out what foods you should be eating and what foods to avoid. It has great snack ideas that are not only good for you, but good tasting.
To sum it all up, this book has changed my life!

Hi 'NurseJulie'. I sympathized with and relate to some of what you have dealt with. I live in San Diego and highly suspect that I am suffering a bit from borderline low thyroid. From what I've read about all the many and complicated factors that can affect the thyroid, a knowledgable doctor who is open to treating root causes is not necessarily easy to find. I cut wheat out about 3 yrs ago and have never looked back. That helped my body and brain, I think, in some surprising ways, and perhaps I need to get more serious or diligent about avoiding even tiny amounts of hidden gluten outside of wheat ... not sure about that for me yet. Anyway, I would really love to know the name and how to contact the Integrative doctor with whom you have had success. I hope you see this sometime in the near future and I appreciate in advance your emailing that doctor's contact info. I can be reached at this email: walkinbythesea@me.com

Thank you!
Sarah

It's great that you are doing so well. You are very lucky to have found a doctor that practices integrative medicine. They are not easy to come by. Just wondering how you came to know that you are gluten intolerant? I had a blood test and endoscopy done and they both came back negative but I still wonder if I am sensitive to wheat.

I found out I was gluten interolent from ENTEROLABS. You can order the test along with soy, caisin(dairy), eggs if interested. Follow the directions after receiving the kit and get your results with 3 weeks online. Easy and accurate way to find out.

All the best,
Patty
