I have recently taken a break from eating millet as a breakfast cereal and I'm noticing I feel warmer and not getting an odd sensation in the thyroid area that I had previously.
Googling  I found a site that says millet is a goitrogen, and when cooked it increases! Also mentions other goitrogens to be careful with and there were a few new ones on there that I had not been aware of...http://www.cholesterol-and-health.com/Goitrogen-Special-Report.html

Thanks for posting!! I ate cabbage last night & interestingly, despite it being only 13 degrees Celsius overnight, I was almost too warm, even with no hot water bottle...

I'm envious of you Possum, sounds like your thyroid is working well.

Lin - I always thought/assumed that my thyroid *wasn't* working well... since I have really struggled to lose weight (especially lately)   Technically I shouldn't eat cabbage really (as an O nonnie) but thought I'd try it...
Millet makes me gain overnight & breaks my skin out (most carbs pretty well do that too, except weirdly - rice cakes )

Possum,                
It must be tough struggling with weight. I've been fortunate to always be on the thin/slim side. Being type A blood, the cortisol/adrenals are my bigger issue but I learned when you are under long term stress it draws on the thyroid hormone.  And so at times I could feel the thyroid area ache, very weird.  I found a website which showed you can have either pure adrenal issues, or a mix of thyroid/adrenal, or pure thyroid.  

That is interesting that rice cakes don't affect you as other carbs do.
I like your tag line "running away from perfume and chemicals".  I have had issues reacting to same, I feel I'm not so sensitive now but still can get bothered.  I think this is due to liver needing help clearing out.
I suppose a lot of these things are connected one way or another.
