Personally, and I mean this respectfully, and I could also be wrong.  But I think that a blanket statement about all A's might not be completely true either.  The only thing I can point to is that on the BTD, coconut oil was an avoid for EVERYONE.  And remember, avoids were called poisons.  We know that isn't the case.

My only point is that I think things have been updated since 1999.   Now it may be that MOST A's do well on it.  But I don't buy the ALL A's thing.  Not everyone, including A's, process estrogen to the same degree.

Quoted from Rennie
Another baddie for thyroid issues is fluoride.  If your community puts it in your water, make sure you get a really good filter.  Thyroid disease is rampant these days and the rise of it has been tied to the fluoride.


This is partly due to Flouride, Chloride and Bromide flushing Iodine out of the body...  Make sure you get adequate iodine in your diet...  
Table salt usually advertises that it contains iodine, but because it is sodium chloride - it flushes more iodine out than it provides...

How do I find that out and what would it benefit?  I guess I could plug it into swami, eh?

ABJoe,

Good advice, makes sense.  

However, there has been many endocrinology publications written advising against iodine products for people with autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's) because it can cause a flare-up of thyroiditis.  That's me.  

So I'm on the fence about it and wish Dr. D would explain why he recommends iodine (kelp, bladderwrack) as blanket advice for a healthy thyroid considering that some of us are Hashi people.  I've brought this up before so my apologies to all who are bored with the subject.  It's just that when it's YOUR disease you have a vested interest in clarifications.

And yes, Lola, I've read every link you've posted on the subject.  Still no answer on the specific issue of thyroiditis as opposed to typical hypothyroidism - which does indicate the advantages of taking iodine.

Over and out

Well, in SWAMI, if you check that you have a thyroid problem, kelp and bladderwrack become avoids. I started avoiding them when I reran SWAMI with that advice. I am feeling like I might need more iodine, so I just started taking it again today. I'm going to ask my doctor for a test for Hashimoto's just in case.

Same here.  That's why I started this thread.  It doesn't make sense to me.  On the other hand, it kept, spirulina, wakame and another one as superfoods.  So....  There is something about bladderwrack and kelp that is different from the others.  What it is, I don't know.
