Sensitivity to cruciferous vegetables and onions...Why??

Commented on November 22, 2013

I love vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables and onions. I get inflammatory responses by way of swelled eyes & hands, headache, ringing in my ears...literally feel like I have a hangover. I have read that prolonged cooking is recommended for someone with autoimmune issues which takes all the flavor away. Anyone else experience this and have overcame the issue or been told what may be the underlying cause for it?

yep. if you want to support your thyroid, best avoid/minimise all goitrogens.

& may be avoid grapefruit as well, which i think (?) may also be a goitrogen, plus grapefruit may interact with your meds.

best avoided i would say, or eat very sparingly.

cruciferous vegetables are goitrogenic foods, so that could be something to google as well
