Thyroid Problems

It seems more and more women come in our clinic with thyroid problems as one of their health issues. So many are still tired, can’t lose weight, have brittle hair and nails, constipation, etc.

We have a checklist with 27 symptoms for thyroid issues, and at least half of these women are on thyroid medications. I was reading an article this week about the Teflon pans we have been using for years. How ingredients in those pans may be one of the culprits. Interesting article again on Dr. Mercola’s website.

Doc and I quit using Teflon four years ago, it did not make sense to me to use them anymore. Sure, they offered easy cleanup, but chemicals in our food?

Instead, we use more pure butter, coconut, olive and other oils to coat the pan. Oils are needed for our brain, joints, skin and hair anyway. There are ceramic coated pans that are better for us.
