Best Diet for Graves’ Disease

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune condition that causes thyroid overactivity and a slew of other unpleasant symptoms.  While of course you should follow a doctor’s recommendations for treatment most do not include diet in their treatment of the disease.

There is a great deal of suspicion that Graves’ disease is trigged by environmental and nutritional factors.  In the treatment of my own Graves’ disease I’ve found eating a  high nutrient diet and eliminating toxic personal care products from my routine very helpful. If you want to dig deep in learning the benefits of a high nutrient diet Dr. Furhman’s Eat to Live is a great place to start. This is a general idea of how I approach my day.

The diet should be rich in fruits and vegetables, organic when  possible.  Remember that conventional produce is still nutrient rich and autoimmune supportive.  Selecting processed food labeled organic in lieu of produce in any form would be a mistake. In the weeks to come I’ll be listing specific foods that are particularly helpful and sharing some simple recipes that incorporate them.
