  1. Wondering if you took the full amount of Herbal AVR each day (bottle says 3-4 three times per day)?
    Thank you for all your info. Have been dealing with same issues for 10 years and doctor after doctor with no help.

  2. Did you ever find out if you had any viruses or bacteria that were cleared with the proteolytic enzymes? Your journey is fascinating, thank you for sharing! I have been on AIP for almost a year and also cannot reintro hardly anything, so I need to do some more digging.

    1. Hi Alisen! I am not sure if the enzymes cleared any viruses or bacteria because I didn’t have any testing done before and after. Regardless, they seemed to work as a great “clean-up” of my blood, whether that be environmental toxins, viruses, etc. as I felt a major difference in my mental clarity and overall well-being. They now have a permanent spot in my supplement cabinet.

  3. Hi Anna,

    Do you know if the Herbal AVR can be used while breastfeeding? I also can’t wait to hear how you’re doing postpartum! I found your blog because I’m having a major Hashimoto’s flare right now (I’m 4 months postpartum). I’ve just finally transitioned to full AIP and am trying some of the things you’ve shared to try to get my antibodies under control – my TPO antibodies were over 10,000 at last check!

    1. Hi Joni, it’s so difficult to know because the ingredients were all in a different language and I honestly had no idea what I was taking – it was truly a moment of trust when I decided to take it after my acupuncturist recommended it. Maybe you could try e-mailing the company who makes it to see what the ingredients are and go from there. If it were me, I’d probably hold off until I was done breastfeeding and talk to my functional medicine doctor about other safe options to take while breastfeeding. My doctors in the past recommended Monolaurin as an anti-viral that is safe, so that is something you could consider/talk with your doctor about.

      I am so sorry to hear about your flare – it is so tough, especially in that post-partum phase, but I think you are on the right track! I will be giving an update soon in a blog post, but I am currently about 2-3 months post-partum and just got my bloodwork done. My thyroid antibodies are still gone and I am still not taking any thyroid medication, which is really encouraging. I think once you find the things that work for your body, you’ll be able to significantly reduce them AND keep them that way!

      1. Thanks so much for getting back to me! I will look into the monolaurin. And it’s so encouraging to hear that your Hashimoto’s is still in remission, even postpartum!
