Thyroid or hormone Problems? Try replacing root veggies for grains

    If you have an autoimmune disorder, thyroid issues or leaky gut, grains are one of the first things to go.  It’s time to let your gut heal!  Your system cannot handle grains when it’s in attack mode, it’s trying to repair and it takes too much energy to heal while trying to digest grains.  It’s time to simply your diet and give your body nutrient dense vegetables instead.
