Going Dairy Free

Second only to gluten as a dietary trigger for auto-immune thyroid issues, is dairy. That’s why doctors and health practitioners looking at a diet to support their thyroid patients will often recommend giving up both gluten & dairy.

If you missed them, check out Going Gluten Free Part 1 and Part 2.

By way of context, here is a list of common triggers.

Symptoms of dairy intolerance include reflux, bloating, diarrhoea, respiratory symptoms (eg cough, sinusitis, asthma) and skin reactions (eg psoriasis, eczema).

 

In this episode we cover

  • lactose intolerance
  • types of dairy to avoid
  • dairy as possible cross-reaction to the thyroid gland
  • dairy as a trigger for thyroid disease
  • how & why to eliminate dairy
  • how to know if you have a dairy intolerance
  • practical alternatives for milk, cheese, butter etc.
