Hashimoto’s Health Tip: Conducting an Experiment
Hey, people! Yesterday, I posted about how the process of healing can be conducted like doing experiments. And I described 7 simple steps for doing so. I also asked people to post a problem they’d like to address and a number of people wrote “gut healing”. So, today, I’d like to use this as an example.
Step number one is:
#1. Pick a specific problem to solve. Gut healing is not a specific problem. It’s a very broad category that could include many problems. How can we make that more specific? What are specific issues involving the gut?
Well, addressing bloating, belching and/or gas could be one (with hypothyroidism this can be caused by low stomach acid levels). Healing leaky gut could be another. Addressing any number of potential infections in the gut could also be others (for example, H. pylori, Candida, SIBO, etc.). Any of those are much more specific than the broad topic of gut healing.
And all of them can be found by doing testing and/or finding specific symptoms. Testing is helpful because it gives us something to do before and after we conduct our experiment to see if it actually did anything.
The stomach acid problem is a simple one to experiment with. You don’t really need to test stomach acid levels, you can simply note the symptoms and try some things to improve them. Common symptoms of low stomach acid are:
undigested food in stools.
#2. Isolate your variables.
You can't figure out what's working when you are doing 30 different things. I can't tell you how many people I speak with that are taking over 20 different supplements.
One key element of conducting a successful experiment is to minimize your variables. The fewer variables, the better the chance that you'll be able to tell if what you are doing is working.
This is one of the virtues of the Autoimmune Paleo Diet. It is designed to minimize variables by eliminating everything that is potentially inflammatory. It also makes it a good foundation for trying things because it really simplifies things.

I feel a good vibe in here .. I think is my own vibe 😎feel yourself ! .
Everyday in traffic I see this crap.
I've followed a CHP moto a couple times going up the 15 to work . He goes nice and slow when.lane splitting and looks for people like this. Usually gets someone in less than 2 minutes.
Best part is ,their reaction,they almost all instantly drop their phone!😂.
They re so busy on their phone to even look and when he pulls up next to them they get all surprised!!!!
