With around 20 million cases in America alone 200 million people world wide, hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, is one of the most common underlying chronic hormonal problems in the world. Many health professions consider it a silent epidemic because probably half of those struggling with this insidious health problem remain undiagnosed and don't know why they are suffering with frustrating and debilitating symptoms like unexplained weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, brain fog, depression, anxiety, or digestive problems.If your thyroid isn't working well, nothing in your body works well, but diagnosing a thyroid issue isn't easy because lab test results can be confusing and misleading. If your doctor only tests for your level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) then you will only get treated (with a synthetic thyroid hormone like synthroid/levothyroxine) if your labs re out of range. If your labs come back "normal", you will probably be sent home with a shrug or an assurance that you are fine. AH&W views this as a serious problem.
Food allergies and sensitivities are recognized to be correlated with many plaguing health conditions such as IBS, eczema, fatigue, and others-but proper identification and elimination of offending foods, many experience relief their symptoms.
