Effectivness of the Paleo Diet

I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid over 7 years ago and I am currently taking 150grms of Levothyroxine. It has been suggested that I try the Paleo diet as although I am "coping" at present there is a vast room for improvement in my general wellbeing. I wondered if anyone else had followed the diet and if they had felt any positive or negative results. Thank you

You can read all about it on Dr Sarah Myhills website I believe......excellent site for masses of FREE information...

Good Luck ! Healing the gut is a positive move is calming all sorts of problems in the body. You may wish to look at Dt Natasha Campbell-McBride's book - 'Gut and Psychology Syndrome ' for the same reason.

Good Luck !.........


I have ME with adrenal, thyroid, immune system and digestive problems. Switching to the paleo diet and excluding all dairy and gluten had a big, positive effect, and I continue to improve Within a few weeks I started to feel, and look, much better. I do this in conjubction with other treatments/supplemenst/lifestykle changes to support my recovery which continues steadily. eg l supplement with vit D, omega 3, Selenium, iron, adrenal and thryoid glandulars amongst other things and take regular naps.

I hope this helps.
