Dr. Broda Barnes was a pioneer in the field of thyroid studies. According to the famous doctor, an American physicist specializing in endocrine diseases who worked throughout the twentieth century, and whose most famous book is a text from the seventies entitled ” Hypothyroidism: the unsuspected illness ” (Hypothyroidism: the unsuspected disease), many people they have slow thyroid problems, but these problems are never diagnosed at least until they become really serious, resulting in full-blown thyroiditis. Dr. Barnes has always advocated the usefulness of dry thyroid in healing hypothyroidism, and it was he who spoke about the relationship between thyroid problems, body temperature and heartbeat.
In fact, those suffering from thyroid have a basal temperature that is often low, and heartbeats are inconsistent and below 70 per minute.
Broda Barnes developed a diet to help the thyroid but also reduce the overweight of people with a tendency to hypothyroid. The Broda Barnes Thyroid Diet is a 1300 calorie diet, ideal only for losing weight if you have thyroid problems. Subsequently, the amount of carbohydrates should be increased gradually. On average, patients lost 5 pounds per month with this scheme.
