Two of my patients were fraternal twins in their mid-forties. Not surprisingly, they shared a cluster of ailments including chronic fatigue and hypothyroidism. Yet, they also had other symptoms that they didn’t share. I found that they both had one thing in common. When they took the amino acid, taurine, both felt better.
If you have hypothyroidism, you might also have Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis. What is the difference? My new patient Carol looked tired. Her complexion was ashen and purplish crescents framed the lower rim of her eyes. She was overweight even though she ate a mostly vegetarian diet, avoided refined sugar and dairy products; had stopped eating wheat, didn’t eat fatty or fried foods, and never snacked.
