The Thyroid Sessions are changing the world!

As of this writing, a whopping 105.5K people have registered to attend the event and over 2000 comments have been posted on the presentation pages.

Many of those comments have been questions for our experts.

To ensure that you get the answers you’re looking for, I’m hosting 3 LIVE Q&A sessions on the UW podcast. The first session went down last Thursday, when Reed Davis, Ben Greenfield, Christa Orecchio, and Andrea Nakayama joined me for the hour.

Here’s what our callers asked and our experts answered:

3:38 – My TSH is normal but my antibodies are sky high. AND I have nodules. What should I do?



8:32 – I’m extremely gluten sensitive. Can gluten antibodies attack the thyroid enough to cause nodules? And what kind of dietary modifications should I make if I’ve had my thyroid removed?

12:50 – I have Graves’ disease and have had my thyroid irradiated. But I’m still experiencing weight gain and mood symptoms. What can I do?

20:09 – I have major digestive problems and have gone gluten-free. My thyroid scores are abnormal. I was told to investigate my gut, liver, and possible LPS toxicity. And thoughts?

23:24 – I have alopecia, an autoimmune disorder. Is there a connection to thyroid problems?

25:55 – Is there any connection between the MTHFR genetic mutation and Hashimoto’s?

28:07 – I am hypothyroid and gluten sensitive and have been diagnosed with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. What can I do to go deeper? Should I try juicing or colon cleansing? I’d like to put the antibodies in remission.

32:34 – I’ve been through underfeeding and overtraining, and I now have a low functioning thyroid and adrenals. How much carbohydrate should I consume as I am recovering and less active?

36:24 – My T4 is low and I have been trying medications and iodine therapy, but my T4 levels won’t budge. What am I doing wrong?

39:50 – Is Thyro-Gold a supplement that can be taken with medications and/or any other supplements?

42:09 – I had a total hysterectomy about 15 years ago and has been on levothyroxine until 6 months ago when I went on Armour. My T3 is a little high, free T4 is okay, and my cortisol AM is up at 12.2. Should I try increasing my Armour on my own to see how I feel?



45:21 – I have Hashimoto’s and have been gluten- and dairy-free for some time. I still have digestive problems and am often tired. I enjoy consuming soy. Is it really that big of a problem food? What’s wrong with soy?

49:34 – I was diagnosed with Graves’ disease a year ago and it turns out I have antibodies not only for Graves’ but for Hashimoto’s as well. My docs think my thyroid is giving out. What can I do about this?



51:29 – I had a thyroidectomy in 2012 due to cancer and am now dealing with depression and weight gain. I exercise smart and eat very well. I’m also working with a practitioner to heal my gut and liver. What am I missing here?

54:18 – I went through surgical menopause and have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. My antibodies are sky high but getting better. My doc does not want to focus on the thyroid. What can I do?
