    Is There A Link Between Hypothyroidism, Chronic Disease, and Intestinal Parasites?

    One of our upcoming TBYH Conference speakers, Tanya Bucci, has had personal experience with intestinal parasites causing a myriad of her symptoms, including hypothyroidism, gluten intolerance, anemia, and more.

    Tanya Bucci is a Certified Nutritionist with a Master’s Degree in Research Methodology. She has delved into the world of intestinal parasites, receiving advanced training in how to overcome these infections naturally and safely.

    We are excited to share her wisdom and knowledge with you at this coming conference, as we believe it is essential to consider intestinal parasites as a partial or full cause of certain health conditions.

    Here’s a little more from Tanya…




    Have you personally had any health challenges over the years?

    I was infected with a fish tapeworm from eating sashimi in 2003 that went undiagnosed for over a decade. This resulted in a wide range of health issues including subclinical hypothyroidism, low bone density, gluten intolerance, amenorrhea, and pernicious anemia due a B12 deficiency.

    Despite seeing numerous specialists and undergoing years of diagnostic exams and lab-work, no one ever mentioned the possibility of being infected with parasites. In January 2015, I discovered that I was infected with tapeworms. I immediately knew that was the root cause of my health issues and embarked on a journey to overcome it without the help of Western conventional medicine.

    What will you be teaching at Take Back Your Health DC?

    I will be speaking about intestinal parasites, focusing on the natural foods and herbs that are anti-parasitic. Also I will be briefly discussing common parasitic infections, as well as will be covering the various symptoms and health issues that these infections can cause.

    What lifestyle changes have made the biggest improvement in your health?

    Utilizing herbs and wild edibles have played a huge part in my overcoming my parasitic infection and restoring my nutrient stores. Also eating lots of raw fruits and vegetables daily is a key part of my diet (choosing organic whenever possible and always for the ones on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list). I also limit grains and legumes unless properly prepared (i.e., sprouted, soaked, fermented sourdough, etc.).

    What advice do you have for someone who is just beginning a healthy lifestyle?

    Start today to make at least one change, such as adding an extra serving of raw leafy greens to your diet or having organic (or wild) berries in lieu of a sugary treat. It is VERY important to enhance digestion. Consuming something simple like organic raw apple cider vinegar before one eats or on salads is an easy beginning step. It is very important to chew food well. This helps with digestion by increasing stomach acid and digestive enzymatic activity, which helps both in nutrient assimilation and in destroying any pathogens that one may consume.

    What are a few of your favorite foods?

    I love coconut (especially the fresh meat from a mature coconut), fresh pineapple, raw sprouted nuts, raw carrots, homemade hummus made with sprouted garbanzo beans and lots of tahini, and raw goat milk (but not all at the same time!).

    What are you looking forward to at Take Back Your Health DC?

    Seeing old friends, making new friends, learning new things, and helping others by sharing what I have learned along the way – both from my formal educational pursuits and equally important from my own personal experiences.



    We hope you’ll join us at the Take Back Your Health Conference to learn more from Tanya about how intestinal parasites contribute to chronic disease, hypothyroidism and other conditions with mysterious symptoms.   

    Keep taking back your health,
    Robin Shirley

      Hi Tanya! I can’t believe that it sounds like you are talking about exactly the same journey that I’m in the middle of. I’m thinking about starting the Auto Immune Protocol Diet but its so difficult to think about when I usually try to follow a veggie diet. I’m just going to start my own parasite cleanse despite being told that is not what it is. It is so frustrating to live in Uniontown & not have any doctors who can support your ideas. (That’s exactly what I’ve been going through.) I would love to hear your talk. Let me know if it makes it to a recording. Look me up if you make it to your hometown.
