    I have hypothyroid and IBS. I’m loosing my hair like crazy now. Having a hard time healing my gut. No matter what I eat, I feel sick and bloated. I’m staying away from gluten and dairy but still sick. Don’t know what to eat since I hate veggies. Any tips ?

      Hi Maritza,

      Sometimes, even when you take out certain foods, there might still be others in your diet that are irritating your gut. Two things you might try:
      -Perhaps going on an elimination diet, where you see if there are other foods you’re currently eating that are hurting you. Tom has a book on how to do this coming out, as well as recipes that help make nourishing foods (like some veggies) taste great. Check that out here: http://www.nourishingmeals.com/
      -Even though this may seem counter intuitive, try to eat more calories and get more rest – a la Matt Stone. This will increase your body’s available energy so it can help you heal, and will often help stop hair shedding.

      P.S. Be sure to check out all of tomorrow’s talks, especially Josh and Jeanne Rubin’s, and Dr. Izabella Wentz’. They’ll share some new ideas that will be sure to help gut health.
