Since one in five women will be affected by Hashimoto’s or another thyroid disorder at some point in their lives, I am spending this week reading “Hashimoto’s Protocol, A 90-Day Plan for Reversing Thyroid Symptoms and Getting Your Life Back” by Izabella Wentz. She is one of the pioneering experts in lifestyle interventions for treating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Symptoms of thyroid dysfunction could include hair loss, anxiety, joint pain, gastrointestinal distress, extreme fatigue, allergies, and acid reflux to name a few! Here is a link to Izabella Wentz’s site where you can find lots of information.
Each year, the Environmental Working Group publishes the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists. They show the fruits and vegetables with the most pesticides and the least amount of pesticides, respectively.
I like to take this list with me when I go to the grocery store because I want to choose my fruits and vegetables based on the Clean 15.
And you can, too!
