Hi all, just wondered if anyone could advise from research or experience...
I've been to see a naturopath this week for help with both hashimotos and polycystic ovarian syndrome. She has suggested various changes to my diet, one of which is to cut out cows' milk and only eat organic meat because of the hormones in them. I have done a bit of reading about this, but I can't seem to find any balanced articles on how much of an issue it is. Websites seems to be either pro-vegan, pro-farming, or American, where the regulation on hormones given to animals is not as stringent as the uk. Whilst I don't eat a huge amount of meat, it is more difficult/expensive to get organic, and I just like cows' milk and don't have any other issues with it. I have bought some soya milk, but then read you shouldn't have it within 4 hours of levo so that's no good for breakfast!
If anyone has informed views on this I would really appreciate some input. I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the changes to my diet at the moment (is a life without cake and choc going to be fulfilling?!) and don't want to change things I don't need to.
