Gluten free & Hypothyroid

Well after years of expensive tests and stupidity with western docs I finally gave up and went to a Naturopath. I haven't felt this good since I was in college. If ever. I can't recommend Dr. Molly Force in Port Townsend highly enough. She has given me my life back. Turns out for years I have had hypothyroid and am super allergic to gluten. For years I asked to have my thyroid tested and thought it had been...the doctor made a mistake. I sort of knew about the gluten...I have tried in the past to go gluten free and or cut down on it. But now I have to go completely gluten free. I am also allergic to soy, dairy, corn, almonds, sesame,beef and peas. Combine that with my anti-inflammatory diet that rules out a lot of food. I usually cook from scratch thank goodness so that makes things easier.
