Here’s why: A lot of doctors don’t know you can treat autoimmunity.We know that grains can trigger autoimmune disorders.Going Primal or Wild is absolutely the ultimate in blood glucose management and stability. When it senses low thyroid, it triggers the thyroid gland to produce more.But one of three things can happen: (1) The brain can send the signal, but the thyroid doesn’t respond. (We’ll get to that in a second.) The primal lifestyle is what optimizes hormone metabolism. The thyroid is the master gland, and it’s also responsible for male and female sex hormones. With women, symptoms usually manifest as gynecological issues, miscarriages, and things like that.If you have any brain issues, depression or cholesterol problems, thyroid is the first thing to test.
My mom is hypothyroid, and I’ve had thyroid issues, and thyroid problems seem to be becoming more common.
Do you work out like crazy, but can’t get rid of that soft belly fat?

(2) The brain can send the signal, but the thyroid doesn’t produce enough. It does you no good to pummel yourself with thyroid hormones unless they’re actually going to get into the cells, punch into work and do the job. When you’re in a state of stress, you can cause thyroid issues. I gave myself hypothyroidism because I followed a low-fat diet and was overtraining and eating every 2-3 hours a day.
I achieved a level of fitness that was outstanding, but I suffered because I was hungry all the time and my thyroid shut down.
