Hello and welcome back to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore! Today Jimmy kicks off this week's special The Truth About Thyroid Week by talking with Dr. Datiz Kharrazian, author of 'Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? When My Lab Tests Are Normal'. As you'll hear during this interview, Dr. Kharrazian helps us understand how your insulin response may be related to autoimmune issues regarding the thyroid gland. Some advice may surprise you, such as avoiding iodine, passing on gluten-filled foods, and fasting with sugar water. This will be a podcast to remember! And don't forget to come back and listen on Thursday as we'll continue the theme of thyroid disorders with Janie Bowthorpe from StopTheThyroidMadness.com.
But first, Jimmy presents a brief 7-minute interview with Maryland Secretary of Agriculture Earl Hance. Maryland has been promoting a Buy Local Challenge program supporting farmer's markets and purchasing from local farmers across that state since 2008. Listen in to hear what motivated the "Old Line State" to start this experiment three years ago and what the amazing benefits have been both economically and in the health of the citizens who have participated.
