Breaking Up Is Never Easy To Do, Especially After 27-Years Together, today’s Dear Thyroid Letter, written by, Brianna was an exquisitely painful, beautiful letter to her thyroid regarding cancer. From pre-diagnosis, to becoming a survivor; and one hell of a survivor she is.

Our guest blogger and Paleo diet expert, David Csonka has been writing a multi-part series for Dear Thyroid about the Paleo diet. In the first installation, he gave us the basics about the diet. In today’s post, David provided us with wonderful insight about how to implement the diet. We’re so lucky to have him, and very much looking forward to another post.
There’s great interest from our community about this diet, and the benefits to thyroid patients, and patients with chronic conditions, and thyroid cancers.
Thank you @ThriveNaturally (David).
Thank you to the Dear Thyroid Community, for sharing as much of yourselves as you did, connecting with David, and asking questions. You are, as I frequently say, FLAWLESS.

A doctor suggested this diet 2 years ago. He said, “Melissa” you have yeast overgrowth all down your throat” you need to eat like a cave woman; if it doesn’t grow or run or swim don’t eat it…
That’s when I looked into it when I started eating grains again I’d feel bloated and sick” and when I ate more nuts and fruits and took OUT the grains, I’d feel better; I was shocked.
If I ate legumes or beans (a stable of my diet for YEARS) I’d feel bloated and yucky- and when I’d just have a big plate of say steak and steamed broccoli and maybe some potato but not a whole one Ã¢â‚¬” I’d give more than half of it to my doggie and even some REAL LIVE BUTTER I’d feel GOOD.
That was when I realized that I had been doing things all wrong. Even now when I don’t FEEL like cooking I don’t eat like this all the time; but berries and fruits and steamed veggies are EASY to do. It is just HARD to go out to restaurants because plates are PILED HIGH with quite the opposites.
Not quite a cave woman but always trying
