Interviewer: Your wife had thyroid cancer, correct?
Dr. Kevin Dobrzynski Correct.
Interviewer: Before we get into that further, is there or can there be a connection between that and cancer, and was that maybe her case, like you said?
Dr. Kevin Dobrzynski Yes, yes, there's a strong correlation between the two. So, you know, what happens first, it's hard to determine if we can find out, you know, where the problem started, but my wife, you know, we have two kids at home, she works, she's a full-time mom, she has a job, I have a job, we moved our house so moved residences, she's under stress, she had kids, and so you kind of miss these symptoms of being tired and, you know, maybe it's because of the kids I'm not sleeping, maybe the stress from work is causing me to be like putting a few pounds, you have a tendency to ignore those signs and symptoms. And then one day you know, she came to me and she says, you know, I have a, I've got this thing in my throat. She says, what do you think it is? And right away I knew what it was, and I wasn't a thyroid specialist at the time, but I knew it was her thyroid. And so we followed the conventional medicine model, went to, I mean, we lived in the city of Chicago, we got some of the best teaching hospitals in the world here. So we went, talked to these physicians, and unfortunately the best route of therapy at the time was to have her thyroid removed, and it's when we had the thyroidectomy that they found the cancer, so thank God it was out, but that's when everything started to go wrong. So they put her on replacement hormone, unfortunately it didn't work. So, you know, that's when I looked at the situation, I said I got to do something to help my wife, these doctors aren't helping her, and the whole model is failing her. So I started just doing research. I knew nothing about the disease at the time, but I got on the phone, I called specialists around the country, around the world, I did research, I traveled to seminars, and I spent a lot of money traveling trying to, you know, it was a no win situation, I had to help my wife because no one else was doing it.
So and then I started to find this connection between food and hypothyroidism. So the first thing that I found was that there is a strong correlation between food sensitivities and people that have thyroid symptoms, symptoms of hypothyroidism. So the first connection that I saw with food sensitivities and hypothyroidism was this connection between gluten intolerance and hypothyroidism. And here's a problem, my wife, she's Italian, she's a carb queen, if I have to tell her to get off pasta, not an easy thing to do. So up to this point I feared for her life, but now I feared for my life if I have to tell my wife this. But we did that, we took her off gluten, and in less than three weeks she lost eight pounds, and she gained her energy back. And it's the only thing that helped her, and it happened in three weeks. So that's when I said, you know, there's got to be thousands of people out there that can use this information. And so the research I did in the books that I found were great for clinicians to look at, but I said there's nothing here for people to use, so that's why I put the book together, The Hypothyroid Diet, it's a program for people to use so they can start feeling better, because a lot of times the medication just doesn't work.
Interviewer: So in your wife's case, no thyroid now, right?
Dr. Kevin Dobrzynski No thyroid, correct.
Interviewer: Okay, so what sort of things need to happen for her, is it medication for the rest of her life, or what sort of things, without that . . .
Dr. Kevin Dobrzynski Yes, yes. You know, the body is an amazing thing, and it's said that, you know, our pancreas secretes insulin, but without the pancreas, the brain can actually secrete insulin. So the body is an amazing thing. And so there are other parts of the body that can actually create thyroid hormone, but we're not relying on that, so we do have to keep her on thyroid hormone for the rest of her life, until, you know, numbers change or something else changes where we say, hey, you know, she's feeling great and we don't need, you know, as much medication as we did in the past, but that is a big part of it. But the other big part of it is, my wife has what they call Hashimoto thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune form of hypothyroidism, and that's a big problem with this whole conditions is, physicians, most physicians see hypothyroidism as hypothyroidism, when in case there is hypothyroidism, but you can also have Hashimoto's, which is an autoimmune disorder for hypothyroidism, so the body is actually attacking the thyroid, causing all these symptoms. So people that had these autoimmune disorders, really have to modulate their immune system, they have to regulate this through diet, reducing stress, lifestyle factors, exercise, and supplementation. So in conjunction with taking thyroid hormone, she also takes supplements, she watches her diet, she tries to monitor stress, exercise, but she does all that, you know, she feels pretty good most of the time.
