eRenee Posted August 3, 2014 Share Posted August 3, 2014 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, an autoimmune strand of hypothyroidism, over 7 years ago as a teenager, and have also been struggling with IBS for the past two-ish years. I start my first Whole30 in a couple days, and am excited to follow the program! Some of the research I have done on my conditions, and various doctors have mentioned that sometimes greens like broccoli, spinach and kale, and seed-based oils can impair thyroid function and/or absorption of thyroid medication. And, yummy as I find them, these types of items has caused GI issues for me in the past. However, I noticed that the greens aren't restricted on the auto-immune guidelines in the book, or the IBS/IBD section (if they're cooked). I know that you can find every side of an opinion on the internet, so started to feel myself second guessing some of the original research I found that says to avoid these foods. I'm also taking into account the fact that GI issue often do tend to get worse before they get better. Looking for others who may have the same or similar conditions, and what their experiences were with foods they avoided and left in for their Whole30's. Thank you in advance for your input!
