Has anyone had experience with hypo thyroid and results from eating raw? Any specific foods that work best?

The person asking this question is in this situation ...she is a-symptomatic. Doct'rs believe she has Hashimoto's ...-- which is diagnosed by a blood test that detects certain kinds of antibodies in the blood. She has not really found anyone that has experience in reversing the condition with a raw food diet. .... Or with any other method except the drugs.
so -- anyone out there that can shed some light on this condition and what foods would be best?
again -- thanks....

I no longer have my cold nodule, goiter, or hashimoto thyroiditis, but I still have my hypothyroidism, but my meds have been cut back 5 or 6 times. I eat high raw. I know if I could get and stay 100% raw I will get off of the meds. Check the link in the post above and you can read numerous testimonies of people who no longer have their autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto Thyroidities or Graves disease. Yes, it can be done with a raw food diet, but it does take a long time!!!! With any autoimmune disease the adrenals are fatigued and it takes time for that to repair also.

Sea vegetables that are high in iodine are beneficial for the thyroid. You can get a shaker with dulse or kelp flakes for about $2 online, and sprinkle it on your salads. :)

thanks so much for all your input everyone. I'll get together with her and help her with her raw food choices, and incorporate more of the correct/helpful foods. The website will be a good resource.

I meant link, not website. Been too long at a computer today -- lol.

I had hypothroid. Since going raw I have been off of my thyroid meds. I am losing weight. My morning tempeture is normal. No more cold feet and hands. No more foggy head. I am not tired in the same way. I just had my thyroid tested. When the results come back in I will post how they are. I just know they are going to be great. RAW HAS CURED MY HYPOTHYROID, YIPEEEE!
