Front Cover
Hay House, Inc, Sep 4, 2018 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 272 pages
A practical guide to using diet and nutrition strategically to heal Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

If you've been diagnosed with Hashimoto's, it can be hard to know where to start with your diet. There are so many different cookbooks and recommendations, and few provide different options for different situations. That's where The Hashimoto's Healing Diet comes in!
In this book, Marc Ryan, L.Ac., will help you deal with the changes that are frequently involved with chronic conditions like Hashimoto's. He shows you how to use dietary inventions strategically, so that you can adapt your plan in different circumstances. He'll guide you through the various complications associated with Hashimoto's, and the recommended diet and treatment protocols for each one, including Candida, histamine intolerance, intestinal problems, Epstein-Barr virus, and more.
In much the same way Marc explored the five elements of thyroid health in his first book, How to Heal Hashimoto's, he will explore the five elements of digestive health here (earth, metal, wood, water, and fire). You'll learn a brief history of Chinese medicine and "yin fire," one of the most important concepts in internal diseases.
Finally, Marc offers an action plan for readers to continue on their journey toward total wellness.
