While there was no one medical group or doctors saying there is a correlation between the two... peoples stories in an online thyroid cancer support group are saying something different. If you know of anyone who has this condition just be aware that this may be yet another obstacle to overcome.
I personally have now had 2 really bad bouts with IBS and needless to say Mike and I got online and starting doing some research, again. I always want to encourage everyone to do there homework and not just accept a diagnoses with out trying to see what options are out there.
When I read on more than one site to use hot oils to treat the symptoms, I was excited and yet that sounded counter intuitive to me. But low and behold they worked wonders... Peppermint, Fennel and Ginger were the top three recommended. Not a surprise but a great affirmation to say the least.
Often times the medicines we are given to help with one condition will strip or lower other natural nutrients & minerals in our body that we need.which then causes another conditions to deal with.
I have now added mineral water to my diet to help offset any deficiencies that I might be dealing with.
