Diet plays an important role in Hashimoto's attacks. Foods such as grains, dairy, or highly processed foods, can trigger an autoimmune reaction. Foods with gluten, and goitrogens vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, are the worst for Hashimoto's. Instead consider a diet like paleo or Keto which eliminates these triggers. Focusing on meat, fish, low starch vegetables, nuts, fats, fruit in moderation, and seeds may help with inflammation (1).
The Power of Selenium
Selenium is an essential nutrient with a vital job. It helps the thyroid convert hormone from the inactive T4, into the active T3. Without proper conversion, it's like having a sailboat with no wind. According to thyroid expert Chris Kresser, in severe cases of selenium deficiency conversion of T4 to T3 may be impaired. Without proper conversion, people may experience symptoms of hypothyroidism.(2) Selenium plays a vital role in thyroid health, and a healthy thyroid is important for handling Hashimoto's autoimmune system attack.
Iodine is Not the Enemy
We often hear stories that iodine is dangerous for Hashimoto's. But that's not entirely true. Many people report having great success with iodine when the thyroid has the right levels of selenium. In treating thousands of patients, the founders of the Iodine Protocol list iodine as the most valuable tool to use in Hashimoto’s, as long as its used alongside selenium.
"Having seen many Hashi's patients report that iodine use outright lowered their antibodies, I'm a strong proponent of it. The only exception I take, based on observations, is that some Hashi's patients need to go LOW and SLOW with iodine use." --
World famous advocate and author, Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed., wrote two must-read books for every patient looking to understand hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's. Order these books today, they will blow your mind:

"I'm Hashimoto's in remission. Selenium definitely helped, as did optimizng my vitamin D levels.... Been on the Iodine protocol over 4 years now. You'll love the stuff. The sooner you get started, the sooner you'll be in remission. I think some people get confused about post-scarcity effect / symptoms... You WILL experience a sore throat/swelling, but follow the protocol/boosters/detox properly and it passes."

Our founder, Eliza Szabo, created Thiodine Iodine Supplements and Iodine Change My Life community. As a patient herself and advocate for others for 15 years, Eliza had unique insight into exactly how to bring out every woman’s natural vitality. Eliza always said: “As women age, they may find the don't have that same youthful energy and struggle with to feel their best, but life doesn't have to be that way.”
“The biggest mistake a woman can make is thinking that a sluggish metabolism or low energy is something that happens because she is getting older ” Eliza used to say. “At age 48, I look and feel better now than I did when I was 30. It's true the older you get the greater chance the thyroid could slow down but this doesn't mean you're stuck and can't do something about it.”
Long before Eliza Szabo founded Thiodine and Iodine Changed My life, she struggled with weight, low energy and many other thyroid related issues.
Through her young life she watched her friends eat anything, exercises easily and stay thin. No matter how hard she worked to eat healthy and exercising she couldn't budge the scale. For Eliza is was discouraging and embarrassing. Her friends and family thought she just needed to eat less and exercise more. But that wasn't issue. There was something much deeper preventing her success. Hypothyroidism. And it went undiagnosed because her lab results were always "normal".
In her search for answers, Eliza discovered the low thyroid function had meant years of unexplained suffering. She also learned about a vital nutrient, iodine which plays a vital role in thyroid function.
Through this journey to restore balance and feel healthy, Eliza made it her mission to help women who may be struggling with these same issues. Every woman deserve to feel hope. To better access her natural vitality. To bring out the beautiful being that lives in her heart.
