Christie Marie had enough of her sleepless nights, lack of energy and taking a variety of medications to help her hypothyroidism. For 10 years she dealt with the chemical imbalances in her body brought on by her underactive thyroid, constantly battling the frustrating on-again-off-again cycle in which her thyroid levels would raise, only to return to their low levels (1). It was a yo-yo lifestyle that left her upset and confused.
However, it came to an end once she changed her diet. Specifically, she turned to raw foods and hasn’t looked back.
How a raw food diet healed woman’s hypothyroidism
She stopped taking medications and even supplements like B12 and went on a raw food diet. Marie explains that the experience has changed her life since she’s been following the 80-10-10 raw food diet, which means that 80 percent of her daily food consumption is from fruits and veggies and the remaining percentages are a balance of protein and healthy fats (2).
“I’m not on any medication anymore, I’m not taking any pills and I feel really, really good,” she says. “80-10-10 . . . it’s nutrients for every cell and every organ in your body; it’s exactly what you need.” Check out the video below to hear her story.

There’s one hormone that touches every single cell in your body: the thyroid hormone. Which means, if your thyroid is malfunctioning you could feel fatigued, anxious, cold, moody, depressed, or you could have hair loss, obesity or dry skin.

Fortunately, 32 world-renowned experts have gathered in one place.
