Linseeds (Flaxseeds)

  • posted by ismac

    I’ve recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and chosen the naturopathic route as a starting point for recovery. For years I’ve been putting whole linseeds in smoothies. My naturopath tells me that because the seeds are extremely hard & pointed they can cause problems in the gut lining. They may be OK if ground and cooked in recipes. She recommends chia because the seeds are round and soften up well when mixed with fluids. It’s a full-time job looking after yourself 🙂
