If you are having some problems with your health such as muscle and joint pains, carpal tunne, tendonitis, bowel problems, hair loss, weight loss, you might want to have your thyroid checked. You may go to your doctor and ask for a thyroid panel. or you may take your temperature before you get out of bed in the morning. Take it for 7 days. The ideal temperature should be close to 97.6.
You will hear a lot about the problems with cruciferous vegetables. The major problem comes from consuming these foods raw. That is why Dr. Bittiker does not advocate eating large amounts of these foods in a juice shake.
He also recommends that one stay away from soy. Soy foods contain isoflavones thay produce effects similar to the hormone estrogen.
If you do have a thyroid problem then you want to get checked for gluten-intolerance. A blood test is not the most accurate way to check for this. By the time the antibodies show up in the blood stream, the disease is well advanced. You may want to do a stool analysis or have your dna checked with a cheek swab.
Remember, you must go 100% off gluten for at least 6 months to be sure to clean out the effects of the gliadin.
I urge you to listen to the pod cast of today's show. After you listen, I urge you to do more research on the wheat issue.
If you really want to take charge of your health, you will want to do the Paleo diet. You may google the Paleo diet to find all the research that is available now on how benefical this diet is. Dr. Cordain from the University of Colorado heads the major research on this diet, but I don't find his recipes appealing.
Refer back to some of my previous blogs for some delicious Paleo recipes.
