Day 7 of my blogging challenge is here! Thanks to all of you who have read each day’s posts – I hope you’ve enjoyed a few different styles to my usual recipe posts. Today’s challenge was to write a ‘link post’ that is a post that links to other websites, useful information etc. I share links to different articles I think you might like all the time on Facebook and will often link to relevant pages in my posts, so I hope you enjoy the things I share.
For today, I’m going to share with you my online Hashimoto Heroes – these are the people that I follow to support my Hashimoto’s, people that I feel are on top of the latest research and practises and explain things in readable ways. Even if you don’t have Hashimoto’s many of these people share broader information that may be of benefit to you.
Let me introduce you to my online Hashimoto Heroes…
Dr Datis Kharrazian
Dr Isabella Wentz
Dr Wentz is a pharmacist who is passionate about a broad range of thyroid treatment, not just pharmacological. Even within pharmacological treatment she explores the variety of medications available, not just the standard Thyroxine. Here is a great article she’s written on this point.
Sarah Ballantyne AKA The Paleo Mom
Sarah Ballantyne is a scientist. She has an incredible ability to read, decipher and report of the many studies done around the world on a variety of health issues – mostly auto-immune. She also has Hashimotos which gives her a personal insight as well. Her book The Paleo Approach is FULL of the science behind the paleo diet and various auto -immune conditions.
Dr Marc Ryan
Marc Ryan has Hashimotos, his daughter has it and his entire functional medicine practice is treating Hashimoto’s patients. He lives and breathes treating Hashimotos and bringing healing and relief to those with it. His writing is clear, easy to read and caring. His ‘About Me‘ page gives you some insight into his style.
Dr Josh Axe
Dr Axe isn’t specifically about Hashimotos but I find his website and articles incredibly well researched, presented in a digestible way and practical. His passion is holistic health and his motto ‘Food is Medicine’. He does have some great information about Hashimotos, like this article, Natural Remedies for Hashimotos Disease.
I am so grateful that there is so much health education to be found online. Whilst I know it’s not all 100% reliable, it’s so empowering to be able to self-educate about how to best support my health.
