In this episode we welcome back Dr. Michael Ruscio to continue our foray into the all important topic of gut health! We discuss misdiagnosis of thyroid issues and how this seems to be happening more and more as the thyroid rises in popular consciousness. We get into how to be cautious of misdiagnosis and what happens when someone is diagnosed too hastily. Dr. Ruscio comments on the danger of high histamine foods, many of which are often considered to be very healthy and why certain people are at risk while others are not. He also chats about the range of diets out there, from FODMAP to specific carbohydrate and general paleo, offering some ideas of how they can be used effectively and safely. We discuss fasting, lifestyle, dietary obsession and taking the pressure off of yourself for your greater health.
