Robyn has been in remission from Hashimoto’s herself for many years and has been 90% vegan for all of those years and in fact credits her good health with eating so many plants. Robyn herself does the 26-Day Detox at least 2 times a year.
Our good friend Izabella Wentz, The creator or "The Thyroid Secret" sent her 500,000 followers to our 26-Day Detox because it’s how Robyn healed from Hashi’s, herself, and put it into remission 17 years ago. Toxicity is one of the “root causes” of Hashimotos and thyroid disease.
Robyn does not line up with Izabella Wentz’s stance that Paleo is the only way to go, for thyroid patients–for Robyn, a very green and plant-based diet (not vegetarian, or vegan, necessarily, the past 25 years, but highly plant-based) was KEY to putting her own Hashimoto’s in remission and keeping it there. If you are avoiding cruciferous vegetables or goitrogens, you can still participate in the detox modified. Please see the optional food substitutions list for the detox in the detox portal.
We’re great friends, the Paleo folks and Robyn, even though she believes that (AND the Auto-Immune Protocol) are fad diets, industry-driven, and on their way out…..because we ALL see that processed foods, GMO foods, and flour products have got to go! There’s lots to say here, but Robyn disagrees with the implication that everyone, just because of thyroid function, needs to eat animal proteins.
Read How Not to Die by Michael Greger, MD, for another perspective that’s very important. I eat virtually all whole plant foods, freely, and do not show any antibodies for thyroid. There’s no “one size fits all” but eating a LOT of plants is important for human beings with 35′ of GI tract.
