Thyroid Gland Problems and Food Intolerances

Imagine having thyroid problems leading to weight gain, and then undergoing thyroid surgery and taking a cocktail of stabilising drugs but still losing no weight.  This is exactly what happened to Romana L.  After her surgery she was placed on a strict reduction diet to help her lose weight. However, despite eating mostly fruit, curd, raw vegetables, and wholemeal bread, she found her weight stayed the same at best.

Because of these problems, at just 40 years of age Romana was visiting her doctor on a monthly basis. The diagnosis was to stop smoking, exercise more, and lose weight.  Even following this advice, though, she still found when following a diet of only 2510 Kilojoules (600 calories) her weight wouldn’t budge, and if she strayed to 4184 Kilojoules (1000 calories) her weight ballooned.

She was at a loss what to do, becoming more depressed as each day passed. She had pains in her joints which were becoming worse. She even considered liposuction to take away some weight and relieve her pain. Then she came across the ImuPro300 test during her many internet searches for an answer.

She took the test in April. The results she received in early May showed that her ‘healthy’ diet of yoghurt, wholemeal bread, and strawberries was the very thing making her overweight. She was intolerance to cow’s milk and gluten in particular – by cutting out these inflammatory causing foods, Romana lost 13 kg by mid-June.

To experienced therapists Romana’s story is not unusual. A thyroid gland examination simply determines whether a thyroid problem exists, with the characteristics to cause weight gain. It can establish the presence of an autoimmune disease – Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis – in which case the standard treatment is for the patient to receive thyroid hormones.

What is now being discovered, however, is that by further testing for food intolerances with the ImuPro300 test and then following the dietary recommendations considerable weight loss is achieved by reducing inflammation in the body.

In one nuclear medical joint practice, 150 patients with thyroid gland problems were followed with detailed enquiries. The results were astonishing. All the patients who followed the dietary advice produced after receiving the ImuPro300 test results had reacted positively, whereas all those who had not begun the diet (or remained on it for only a short time) had no positives, despite taking the thyroid hormones.

As Romana discovered, the catalogue of acceptable food substitutes for individual food intolerances supplied by ImuPro300 means that a varied and full diet is maintained. She is now able to eat more than before while the weight has literally dropped off. It is her belief that the ImuPro300 test should be part of every physician’s routine examinations, and that no drug is as efficient at producing the results that have helped to make exercise fun again.
