This week, I’d like to give you all a little glimpse into my weekly routine.   A most logical place to start is with the information I find, read, and learn from (whether I agree with it or not).   I have found that the best way to be more well is to read and learn and expand my little understanding of the vastness of health (and also disease). For me, the best way to gain this information is via e-newsletters. ,  It’s a simple and effective way to circulate information and gather news and resources from the people I find most interesting on the internet.   So here’s a list of the health e-newsletters to which I subscribe, in hopes maybe you’ll also enjoy them and subscribe too!,   And please, in the comment box, share any newsletters you think I’ve missed and that we need to know about!

I didn’t realize, before compiling this list that I’m such an About.com fan.   Of course nearly everyone in the thyroid community knows and loves Mary Shomon.   It goes without saying, she’s first on this list: Thyroid.about.com.   I also subscribe to Celiacdisease.about.com, Glutenfreecooking.about.com, Nutrition.about.com, Altmedicine.about.com, and Vegetarian.about.com (which actually happens to slant toward veganism).

Other gluten-free resources I subscribe to include ElanasPantry.com first and foremost. I absolutely love her take on food: low glycemic index, grain-free, whole food, and largely dairy-free.   She also avoids soy (good news for thyroid patients). ImGlutenFreebBaby.com is another GF newsletter.   Though it isn’t updated quite as often, it does have some yummy-looking recipes.   Also, the author is in Britain, so I feel like I’m getting a bit of a different perspective on GF eats and trends.

For “real food” or whole food info, my first e-newsletter suggestion is Mercola.com. I practically worship the man. Also, members of the Real Food Media: Cheeseslave.com, FoodRenegade.com, and KellyTheKicthenKop.com.   For good deals on food products (things like coconut oil, coconut flakes, wild-caught fish, grass-fed organic meats, other “traditional” foods, as well as natural beauty and cleaning products), I look to the TropicalTraditions.com e-newsletter, which always offers coupons and promos.   Buying their products in bulk and with their promotional codes is a really cost-effective way to purchase whole foods.

There are two sites that I subscribe to for news in medicine, natural health and/or the “politics” of those two things.   The first is NaturalNews.com, which is run by a natural health advocate who shares research as well as his opinion from time to time.   He demands alot of accountability for the U.S. F.D.A. and many of his writings deal with issues of drug and food safety.   Organic Consumers Association is another wonderful resource for medical, health, and food news from across the world: OrganicConsumers.org. They champion organics and safe and ethical practices in the food industry.

To round off this list of newsletters, a few miscellaneous others I receive weekly: RawReform.blogspot.com, which is written by a woman who lost approximately 200 pounds on a raw food diet and healed her thyroid (I believe she was hypo); also, the New York Times health blog, which highlights treatments, studies, and coping strategies for those with chronic illness; and finally, AOL’s care2 site.   I never actually signed up for this one — it just started showing up in my inbox, but it’s all about green living and natural lifestyle choices, so I enjoy it.

And before you leave… the winner of last week’s probiotic supplement contest from Swanson vitamins is; Shan!!   Congratulations, Shan!  Be sure to email me at Liz@DearThyroid.com with your shipping info, please and we’ll get those probiotics on their way to you!

Until Next Week,

Love Always,

    I’ve always loved the Graedons, and listen to their show most Saturday mornings on public radio. The also have an RSS feed and podcast download at their site. They discuss western and alternative medicine, home remedies, and other cool stuff. They had Mary Shomon and her doctor as guests in November I think.
    Check them out. And thanks for all those resources, I sense a bookmark-a-thon happening!

    I love living green so care2 is one of my favourite sites among all the health related ones I subscribe too. About.com thyroid suite 101.MDlink endocriminology..just a few to mention. You are so right the way to go is subscribe getting up to date information on new research new ideas, or just health related subscriptions.

    I also do an E.Program from Wingate uni helping students who are going into pharmacy. I was asked if I knew anyone else who maybe interested as they have more students and not enough e-patients to allocate one to each person.

    I should be conversing with my new student very soon. I enjoyed doing the last one.

    If anyone is interested let me know here is the last email I received.

    Greetings from Wingate! I wanted to send you a quick e-mail to update
    you on the E-Patient Program. We are planning to get started in
    mid-January when you should expect an introductory email from your
    assigned student. The e-mail title should include Wingate University
    E-Patient Program to help you distinguish it from junk mail.

    The School of Pharmacy has again expanded its enrollment this year and
    we are up to 76 students. At this moment, I have just enough
    e-patients to assign one of you to each student. I am still in need of
    about 10 additional e-patients. These “backup” e-patients would likely
    be assigned to a student within 2-4 weeks of the course starting (we
    always have some shuffling to do at the beginning of the semester). If
    you know of anyone who might be interested, please tell them they are
    welcome to contact me.

    Thank you again for making this course a possibility! Happy Holidays.


    Kira Brice, PharmD, BCPS
    Assistant Professor
    Wingate University School of Pharmacy
    Wingate, NC

    Awesome. Thanks Robyn. I saw you posted something the other day from there about Vit D, right?

  4. LizSchau says:


    Thanks for the link. Now that is a rather interesting site and idea. You’ll have to tell us how you like it. What exactly will you be talking to them about?

  5. Lolly says:


    I participated last year had a lovely student, we talked about all kinds of things from health to the UK how things differ from the USA. They pose the questions nothing too difficult once a week for about 6 weeks.

    I enjoyed conversing with the student I had last year and hope it will be as equally enjoyable.

    I signed up off about.com where it had been posted.

  6. LizSchau says:

    Awesome! That sounds so great. And you know what, it seems like you can really give them a good idea about how to treat patients, bedside manner and all that jazz. Because it’s really important that pharmacists treat us well too — not just out doctors. We need everyone working for us.
