Healthy eating should be simple, especially now that we have easy access to the latest studies.

It's technically simple to eat healthy.


But let's be honest, it turns out much more complicated than it seems. 


Especially when you have thyroid problems.


If you do a simple Google search "Hashimoto's thyroiditis and diet" you will receive a huge amount of information where mainly they will tell you to remove certain foods, eat only organic products and that you need to follow a certain diet.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is frustrating and debilitating!
Treatments for Hashimoto's thyroiditis exist but unfortunately they are not sufficient to eliminate the symptoms.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis usually occurs between the ages of 30 and 50
- in this case the body begins to develop antibodies that attack the thyroid itself.
The thyroid at this point fails to produce the thyroid hormones necessary for proper functioning.

Let yourself be helped by proper nutrition.


Food can be both your best friend and your greatest enemy.


Have you ever felt / or tired / or after a meal of vegetables? Didn't you tell yourself "I only ate vegetables" and besides being swollen / or I'm very tired / o!?


Have you ever eaten something "for the throat" but then immediately felt a sense of nausea? 


Have you by any chance read a thousand articles about nutrition and Hashimoto's thyroiditis but in the end what you got was a great sense of confusion? 


There is a lot of misleading information regarding Hashimoto's thyroiditis and inflammation. A healthy and balanced diet is beneficial for your health.

I can't promise you that changing your diet will magically make all your symptoms disappear. Unfortunately there is no cure for Hashimoto's thyroiditis because it is an autoimmune disease. 


But I can guarantee you that a healthy lifestyle and personalized nutrition for your needs will have great physical and mental benefits. It will also help you improve digestion and reduce intestinal symptoms. 


We will take care of your body at 360 degrees. We will not leave out any symptom that may seem negligible. I will be here to support you in your moments of difficulty and you will never feel alone. 

Inflammation, mostly caused by food, can destroy "the walls of your house" before you even build it.

A personalized and optimized food plan has made the difference in many people. 


There is a way to eat healthy for Hashimoto's thyroiditis that does not involve major limitations, micro and macro nutrient deficiencies or require hours of preparation in the kitchen.  


Build healthy habits for a better life.


Cutting out certain foods and taking supplements won't cure thyroiditis, but following a thyroid-friendly diet can support your medical treatment and make you feel better!

I'm Dr. Sara D'Imperio.


I am a biologist and qualified nutritionist. I have several patients who unfortunately suffer from thyroiditis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves' hyperthyroidism and thanks to my experience I can help you!


Even if nutrition cannot cure thyroiditis, thanks to my experience I have discovered that it can bring great benefits and minimize the symptoms of tiredness, swelling and intestinal dysbiosis. I share anti-inflammatory recipes, a method for planning meals for the week, articles and science-based knowledge. I strongly believe that a healthy and balanced approach can put us at ease as much as possible and make us more bitter about ourselves.

The basics of nutrition

Based on my experience and the first interview with you, I will offer you the best advice for a healthy and balanced diet

Intestinal dysbiosis management

Scientific research has shown that people with thyroiditis, both Hashimoto's and Grave's, suffer from intestinal dysbiosis. If you suffer from intestinal bloating, bloating, constipation, or have any intestinal symptoms, with a healthy diet and all the necessary information you will learn how to manage these symptoms

Love yourself

You have to love yourself. If you are too self-critical, especially when you feel too tired to do anything and don't feel that productive, you will only make your situation worse both physically and mentally. I will help you manage the stress you accumulate. 

Connect with your body

Each person requires a different approach to managing thyroiditis.

This also includes nutrition. I will ask you to mark it in a notebook or directly on your mobile phone, every time you feel sick, swollen, depressed and I will also ask you to write down what you ate in the vicinity of that emotion. 

Food and Symptoms Journal 


Why do I need a nutritional consultation?


If you suffer from Hashimoto's thyroiditis and/or hypothyroidism, your diet has a big impact on the manifestation of symptoms. Changing your diet and focusing it more on the care of your thyroid can help keep symptoms under control. 


Many patients turn to the nutritionist to lose weight. One of the major symptoms of hypothyroidism is weight gain. It is possible to develop a food plan with the double objective: to support the thyroid and lose weight. 


Does diet help treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis?


Of course! An incorrect diet can cause an increase in intestinal permeability, transform chronic inflammation and increase the production of anti-TPO and TG antibodies. Following a personalized diet for your problems can help relieve most symptoms and keep them under control. 


Do I need to have medical documents for the visit?


Yes. To develop the personalized nutritional plan in the best possible way, I need to have a copy of the most recent blood tests, a diagnosis report of established pathologies and any medical document that can best help the development of the nutritional plan.
