Thyroid Mastermind 2015

Wow wee!! I just returned a couple of weeks ago from a Thyroid Mastermind in Boulder, Colorado hosted by my Hashi’s soul sister Dr. Izabella Wentz and her husband Michael.  The conference was absolutely phenomenal!  Not only did I meet the mover’s and shaker’s and thought leaders of the progressive thyroid health movement, I was also given an opportunity to speak to the group about low-dose naltrexone (LDN)…which of course I was thrilled to do.

A few of the amazing attendee’s I met include Dr. Hyla Cass, Dr. Datis Kharrazian, Dr. Alan Christianson, Andrea Nakayama, Dr. Eric Osansky, Dr. Sachin Patel, Dr. Marc Ryan, Pearl Thomas and Fabienne Heymans (founders of Hashimoto’s, Sean Croxton, Dr. Kirk Gair, Leanne Ely, Dr. Brian Mowll, Stacey Robbins, Trudy Scott, Carrie Vitt, Jen Wittman, Jordan Reasoner, Jordyn Davenport, Dipa Chauhan, James Maskell, Michael Roesslein, Steve Wright, and Magdalena Wszelaki.  I really hope I didn’t miss anyone here.  I feel so blessed to have been invited to attend such an incredible event to learn, grow, and collaborate with world renowned thyroid experts and like-minded people whom I respect and follow.  Meaningful friendships and connections were made and even though the event is technically over, I am still over-the-moon with excitement, new knowledge and following up with everyone I met.

Everyone I’ve mentioned including everyone you see in this photograph is committed to deepening our understanding of how to heal Hashimoto’s and also how we can better serve one another in our world.  The event was an opportunity to share ideas on how to improve the lives of the people we serve who struggle with autoimmune disease.

Dr. Kharrazian was the keynote speaker and presented a mind-blowing lecture on his most recent research that is so top secret right now we weren’t even allowed to take pictures of his power point slides!  He didn’t want his research to be compromised in any way, so those details are forthcoming.  I’m serious when I tell you that the research he will be revealing soon (hint: autoimmunity & proteins) is Nobel Prize worthy.  I can’t wait for it to be disclosed to the world!

Dr. Izabella Wentz presented her study of +2,000 Hashimoto’s patients and shared her findings regarding dietary changes.  Apparently getting food sensitivity testing and eliminating problematic foods for the individual showed the most impressive results for reducing antibodies.  See the illustration below.  This just goes to show how effective diet can be in improving symptoms and reducing antibodies.

Cyrex Labs offers a test called Array #10 that tests 200 different dietary proteins and what’s important is that it tests them in the state we actually consume them.  Many labs test for reactions in RAW chicken or turkey, etc.  But wait, who eats raw chicken or turkey?  Array #10 tests for reactions to cooked foods because cooking changes the proteins (Kharrazian, 2015).

I’ll be sure to share more amazing details as soon as I can…but for now, if you have Hashimoto’s, you may want to take it easy on spinach!

Last but not least, I had the privilege of meeting Tina Forsyth, author of  The Entrepreneur Trap.  Izabella personally invited Tina to speak to the group and what an inspiration she was!  We all felt so energized and motivated after listening to Tina’s killer presentation.

I’m so grateful to all the people who attended the Thyroid Mastermind.  We shared breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and sat next to one another at round tables during the lecture series.  With everything we all learned and with our collaborative efforts, our work as only just begun!
