Dr. David Clark, DC director of the Center for Low Thyroid Solutions in Durham, NC talks with his patient, Susan as she shares her Hashimoto's success story.
Dr. David Clark: Susan, you've been doing how well?
Susan: Much better.
Dr. David Clark: Yeah? So, explain again.
Susan: Much better..My hair's falling out less, my fingernails are a bit better, and this is, I think, only day 19, and my digestive problems have cleared up by 95 percent.
Dr. David Clark: Cool. And you didn't really think you had any digestive problems, though, did you?
Susan: And I didn't think I had any, so now I –
Dr. David Clark: But, you felt 95 percent better, right?
Susan: – now I realize I did have it.
Dr. David Clark: Yeah.
Susan: Did have them. And I got more energy. I have a lot more energy.
Dr. David Clark: So, how do you know that, though? How do you –
Susan: Well, because I work out really hard a few times a week, and my trainer says, "My God, you're getting stronger," and I've lost seven pounds.
Dr. David Clark: Wow. Wow, that's –
Susan: Without dieting, I mean, other than this diet.... I mean, and there was nothing I could do – I forgot to tell you that. There's nothing I could do before to get under 150. No matter how much I ate, how much I didn't eat, I stayed the same. Giving up diary and the gluten –
Dr. David Clark: Broke the barrier.
Susan: – I broke the barrier. I'm down seven, and I feel like I'll probably lose a little bit more, but I kind of – I like being a little bit chunky, so I'm probably – I don't want to get passed –... I don't want to be too skinny.
Dr. David Clark: You don't want to be a stick figure. But, you want to feel good is the point, right?
Susan: Yeah, I feel great.
Dr. David Clark: So, where were you losing hair at? Was it, like, hair on your head type thing?
Dr. David Clark: And so, you noticed that you're losing less?
Dr. David Clark: Like, how much less would you say? Could you quantify it at all, I mean?
Susan: Probably three-quarters less.
Dr. David Clark: Wow. How would – how did you know you were using it? Like, when you were taking a shower?
Susan: I'd find it in the tub –
Dr. David Clark: Wow.
Susan: – or on the pillow or wherever.
Dr. David Clark: On the pillow. Well, that's fantastic.
Dr. David Clark: That's cool. Well, great. All right, well, we're really just getting started, so I – we'll talk to you –
Susan: I'm ready.
Dr. David Clark: Yeah, we'll –
Susan: And I'm very committed.
Dr. David Clark: Cool, all right.
