nathropath ..oh my

so as this is my first week on Judddd, i am new because i never lost ANY weight on atkins..this is my second dd going ok..i have gained weight this week but im ok because i read here that when you go from no carbs to some carbs on this WOE expect some weight gain.
last night i went to a nathropath because i have been on thyroid meds for a year and nothing is happening..he has put me on a gluten free/dairy free diet along with major supplements and a change to my medication. anyone else figure this diet with these restrictions? i can still do it right? he has no problem with the fasting, just what i eat when i do eat.

to JUDDD.

Since JUDDD is allabout calories, it doesn't matter where they come from. It can be done. Might not be as easy but it can be done.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Are your thyroid levels normal now on the medication, or are they still adjusting your doseage?

If levels aren't right, nothing seems right. I'm hypothyroid and have to be checked every three or four months to make sure the levels are okay. When it needs adjusting I can usually tell -- I start getting sleepy a lot. It usually takes about six weeks to "recover" which is why I never, ever miss even one pill.

Also, it is a good idea to check for food allergies. It sounds like that's what he's doing. Maybe ask him about probiotics just in case you have had some low-level food allergies. They help heal the intestinal tract which then keeps food from entering into the bloodstream too quickly.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

it's fairly common practice in naturopathy to eliminate gluten and dairy when there are thyroid issues. You can totally do it. I am gluten free, and have been for 8 years. No problem at all! I'm not dairy free, but the rest of my family is gluten free, soy free and dairy free. It can easily be done!

I am happy to share my tricks, as I'm sure everyone else is! Hang in there! You can TOTALLY do this!

Don't come off medication prescribed by, and monitored by, your doctor without discussing it first. A natropath isn't medically trained, and their advice is no substitute for your doctor's advice.

I know I sound quite strict here, but that's because thyroid issues are quite serious.

As far as I know, eliminating gluten and dairy wouldn't be particularly contra-indicated with medical treatment, but I would talk to a proper medical person first.

ummm, that's not entirely true. depends where the person is. here ND's are licensed, medical professionals that go through medical school, sit for boards, order lab tests, work in hospitals, are covered by insurance and can be considered PCP's.

I agree no one should tweak the meds but the prescribing physician, but I take issue with the blanket statement that naturpaths aren't medically trained. In states where they are licensed they most certainly are.

Totally doable. I'm grain free, dairy free and egg free (allergies--also have allergies to sunflower, cashew, and garlic). It's all about substitutions. Although you may have to work harder to get your calories up on UD's. Grains tend to go hand in hand with sugar, and pack a lot of calories.

There are tons of gluten free recipes on the internet, you just need some specialty flours to make them work. I mostly bake with almond, coconut, arrowroot, and tapioca flours.

I use almond milk anywhere I'd use regular milk, love Amande almond yogurt. So Delicious makes a coconut creamer for your coffee that totally lives up to it's name. And canned coconut milk, chilled and whipped with a few drops of vanilla stevia is absolutely as good as the real cream variety. (if you chill the can, it will separate and you can drain off the cloudy liquid and it will be stiffer after you whip the thick white cream that is left).

If you need more suggestions, just ask. There are quite a few of us here with food restrictions.

a nathropath is a medical professional, licensed and registered. just because it is not western medicine dont mean its not medicine. the world existed and healed itself long before the invention of modern day pharmaceuticals...just saying. and in addition i am working with both my family doctor and my nathropath.
on the next note what to eat if your glutten/dairy/soy free????? i am so stumped because i feel like everything i love has one of these ingredients..

This WOL fits very well with my gluten free life. I also try to avoid dairy when I can and use almond milk and the So Delicious products. As others have said, we can help you problem solve issues. There are tons of recipes on this board that you can use. Pooticus , Ouizoid, Jennifer, and many other creative people have come up with muffins, flour mixes, tortillas, pancakes that fit the special needs many of us have. I have been having one of Ouiz's muffins every morning. Gluten- free and full of fiber!

Maybe not the best place to ask this, but I'm going to anyway. I got some coconut flour a while ago and haven't tried it yet. Does it have any flavor? I was wondering if it could be used for breading, or if it would be best saved for baking. TIA!

it does have flavor, but it can be made sweet OR savory.

My autistic son has been on that "diet" for 10 years, it gets easier after you scout out the GF/CF (milk free) foods mostly in health food stores but more are popping up in mainstream grocery stores. The foods (breads, pastas, waffles and pancakes are expensive but some are very tasty, I bought Zach (my son) some GF pretzels and tried a few, they were even better than the wheat loaded ones!! Bob's Red Mill has some great mixes for cakes, cookies, brownies and waffles.

Becky-I've got two kids on the spectrum myself! Yup, gf/df/sf here! They don't do well on grains at all, but I do let them have some on occasion-so long as they're gluten, dairy and soy free. They have celiac as well, so there's no room for error.

Yowsa! You've got it doubly challanging!! Zach is okay with wheat but we still limit it, if the child goes anywhere near milk you know it in both behavior and potty issues for 2 days!! Zach has to stear clear of peanuts too but is okay with soy, not that he ever has much of that.

How old are your kiddos? Are they high functioning or low? Zach is right down the middle but more twards the lower end.

one high functioning, one moderate on good days, towards the lower end on bad. she no longer loses language as she did so that's a big deal. she'll still shut down at times, but it's not a true regression anymore.

My friend wrote a book about an autistic fourth-grader named Sid. It's pretty good. It's fiction and not very long-written from the perspective of the child. I think she was running an Amazon special for download if you have a Kindle. Her son is autistic. The book is called "The Voyages of the Starship Sid" by Celeste Cornish. I'm not selling it, lol, but thought you might be interested in having a glance.

ETA: Sid is an Aspie.

Our library had that book! I saw it in the new books section last week, just the title didn't pick up the book, but probably should have, although reading anything about Autism/Aspergers makes me cry even if it is happy. I turn into a blubbering idiot at the drop of a hat lately!

End threadjack: sorry OP....

I'm taking it for other reasons, but I'm finding out that a lot of people take L-Glutamine to heal the intestinal tract. Gelatin is said to be great for this, too; I put a tbsp in a bowl of hot broth or soup a few times a week.
