Thyroid Hormone Jumpstart
Cholesterol IS the raw material the body uses to produce hormones, including thyroid hormone.
The statement that cholesterol is bad for you, is half true. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol.
Bad cholesterol is LDL cholesterol (produced by the body). Bad cholesterol is reduced by the hormones in your body, including thyroid hormone. To produce hormones the body needs good cholesterol (HDL) and healthy fats from food.
Most people think cholesterol is bad so they end up with a “clean healthy diet” which to them it means a low fat, moderate protein and high carb/sugar diet. This is the exact opposite of what they should do if they want to produce hormones.
Note, this is the most confusing part of following a diet for hormones. I’m not saying low fat proteins (chicken, turkey, etc.) are bad… they are probably the best option if your diet has carbohydrates which turn into sugar, meaning you run on glucose (sugar).
However, to produce hormones, you need cholesterol and you need healthy fat. In order for your body to use these nutrients, you must learn to become fat-adapted, which means reducing, almost completely eliminate sugar from your diet.
In other words, most people avoid the foods needed most to produce hormones because of a false belief that fat and cholesterol is bad. These people are what we call “sugar-adapted”. They run on sugar, which often leads to food/sugar cravings, damaged gut wall flora (especially yeast overgrowth), and low energy.
This program will walk you through how to use cholesterol properly so your body can process it and so you can become “fat-adapted”. This means using fat as a source of fuel instead of sugar which is the most ideal state for the body to produce hormones.
Important, cholesterol and healthy fats need vitamin D, selenium and a healthy gut flora (probiotics). Most people with hypothyroidism have damaged gut flora, which is why I start people with fermented fats until they repair their gut.[/text_block]

Pick a source of healthy fat & cholesterol:
a) Egg yolk
b) Fermented cod liver oil + rich butter fat
Take your choice above with the two nutrients the body needs to process cholesterol.
Do this upon waking and before bed for 90 days.
If you have digestive issues, add probiotics. To get results faster, do intermittent fasting by drinking green juice (with no sugar) in the morning so your body is in a fasted state (using fats as a source of fuel instead of sugar). You can get both probiotics and green juice here, or watch this video.
