Kelly Walsh has a Master’s in Nutrition from The College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown, NJ, and is currently working as a cooking/nutrition instructor at a private school in North Jersey.
Two years ago, Kelly was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after a stressful combination of working and finishing up her dietetic internship. Her journey to wellness was to find the “root cause” of why her thyroid symptoms came on so suddenly. After about a year of trying elimination diets, food, and allergy testing, the root cause was the reactive food sources of soy, rice, wheat, dairy, and corn.
By eliminating these five food sources from her diet and taking 50mcg of levothyroxine her thyroid symptoms are stable. As a nutritionist, Kelly knows the importance of how diet can be a big factor in managing symptoms of thyroid disease.
She looks forward to sharing recipes, articles, and advice on how to educate your clients living with thyroid disease.
