Does dairy need to be avoided in those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s?

When it comes to diet and autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Graves’ disease and Hashimotos, you hear a lot about avoiding gluten. What surprises many patients is that we also often recommend avoiding dairy.

While dairy is associated with certain health benefits, there are also potentially negative consequences on your health.

Today I’m sharing the top reasons I recommend avoiding dairy and what research shows about the impact of dairy on the body.


During this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Four reasons you should avoid conventional dairy
    • Most types of milk, including organic, contains hormones
    • Pasteurization removes valuable nutrients
    • Homogenization might increase the risk of certain cardiovascular conditions
    • The mTORC1 pathway plays a big role in the development and progression of numerous conditions
  • How to find out if you have a dairy sensitivity
  • The issues that can arise with beta-casein A1
  • What to consider when it comes to drinking raw milk
  • Dairy alternatives to consider
  • How to get enough calcium without consuming dairy

As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
