5G and Radiation Poisoning

There is corruption AND ignorance surrounding the issue of acute electro-sensitivity. Many people still think this is non-sense. How quick people are able to forget about the government approved at onetime DDT, asbestos, lead paint, fluoridated water, and round up and endless medications that have harmed or killed people. There are nominated NOBEL PRIZE and winning scientists from around the world, as well doctors, surgeons, and endless numbers of experts publishing written articles of the dangers of microwave and radio frequency radiation.

Wi-Fi and smart-meter technologies now have an unprecedented volume indiscriminately throughout our everyday environment. Radio transmitters are placed in our homes. The capabilities being engineered into the electrical grid are nothing short of totalitarian.

5g has been used by the military for years as a deadly weapon. It is the same frequency bands the military uses for group disbursements weaponry. Wireless radiation has biological side effects. These effects are seen in all life forms plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer. Evidence of DNA damages, cardimyothpy, and nurophysciactric effects.

5g creates unsustainable healthcare expenses. They have been sitting on the evidence of EMF and chronic disease for decades.  

5G is a special kind of broadcast for high-density transfers. We know four kinds of electromagnetic fields that are harmful to human health. Radio frequency radiation, magnetic fields, dirty electricity and electric fields. 

1 in 3 American children will become diabetic in their life time. All humans are affected by EMF’s. So, what does this have to do with wireless radiation? Wireless radiation and other electromagnetic fields such as magnetic fields and dirty electricity have been clearly associated with elevated blood sugar and diabetes, this is what the peer review lecture states it is not an opinion. The closer you live to a cell tower, the higher your blood glucose. If you expose a rat to 2.4 gigahertz in a lab, they will develop diabetes. Another issue from diabetes leads to chronic kidney disease.

We need to start measuring how much radiation us humans are being exposed to. The exposure in one day is not isolated to just one more thing either. It is a combination of things that add up like cell phones, many wireless networks, smart meters, cell towers and microwaves.  I have even seen them on water towers which that changes the frequency of the water! Water is highly susceptible to oscillating frequencies. The molecules literally change shape depending upon what frequency they are exposed to just like our DNA and humans are 60% water.

Symptoms that come from acute electro-sensitivity also known as radiation poisoning. If you read the book The Invisible Rainbow, it goes highly into depth about this. It seems if you look back on history every single time a new illness that emerges seems to happen when they introduce a new form of technology. 1889 we had the rollout of electrical power lines and “Asiatic flu” or “Russian flu”, was a worldwide respiratory viral pandemic. 1919 we had the roll out of the radio and the The Spanish flu, 1967 we had the rollout of the satellites another influenza sickness (influenza A (H3N2), 1999-2000 we had all the bee’s dying because of the rollout of the 3g and 4g networks. Bee’s need a certain frequency to travel. Of course, the toxic chemicals the farmers were using to spray their crops did contribute to some of the demise of our bee’s.  Now we fast-forward to 2020-2022 we have 5g rolling out. Many people are experiencing all of these symptoms.

Research consistently finds that radiofrequency radiation penetrates deeper into children’s bodies and brains and the American Academy of Pediatrics considers children more vulnerable to radiofrequency radiation-  Read this 2018 published paper (Qureshi 2018) which concludes that the highest observed whole body specific energy absorption rate value was in the child model when radiation were simulated. We are electrical beings and certain forms of energy are harming us.

Therefore, if you start to connect the dots you can clearly see when these new forms of technology are introduced which is very powerful and our body cannot adapt we start develop many different symptoms.

What can you do as parents? Become aware and watch the documentary Take Back Your Power along with reading the book The Invisible Rainbow.  Research, read and seriously start taking back your power! Always follow the money. See who are invested in these companies and hold the patents. Also, pay attention to the bills that congress passes. Who voted for them and if they are invested or hold stock in that company.   

Other Solutions to help us with EMF poisoning.

  1. Barefoot grounding weekly to remove static.

Going out into the earth, taking your shoes off and walking barefoot. This will allow your body to harmonize with the earth’s frequency.  

  • Disabling Wi-Fi in the Home.

Wi-Fi is pinging or pulsing yourself 24/7 therefore, we can hardwire your router by using an Ethernet cord. 

  • Getting rid of your smart meter

Smart Meters will affect the water because water takes on frequency. It promotes negative behavioral changes.

The radiation generated by smart meters is the same type as generated by your cell phone- radiofrequency radiation.

Peer reviewed science has found increased cancer, immune system damage, and headaches after exposures to radiofrequency radiation. Dr. David Carpenter’s letter “Correcting the Gross Misinformation” addresses the biological health effects of smart meters.

4. Swapping out LEDS lightbulbs to incandescent as leds can pulse EMF

5. Going all organic in your diet

Where you can detox all the heavy metals. So, your does not work like an antenna and attract EMF.

6. Swap out our clothes from polyester plastic and fiber to natural fibers-

Linen, cotton and wool because plastic attracts EMF. 

7. Filtering your water from fluoride and heavy metals.

A Women’s Holistic Holy Grail Handbook for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s: How I healed my Hypothyroidism and Autoimmune Disorder with Personalized Nutrition

I hoped you’ve been enlightened and not frightened by my latest blog — A tale of recovery to save a woman who caught OCD, Hypothyroidism and an Autoimmune Disorder –

Please follow along with me on this journey of discovery as I share with you my brush of madness with exquisite clarity. Luckily, I was never a quick fix-it junkie where I said no to many suggestions from board certified or certifiable doctors because I felt it in my soul that it was merely a banaide being placed on my issues. The names of certain doctors have been changed because frankly, I don’t want to be sued for proven their lack in their field. 

Hippocrates was right when he said: Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.

Profoundly Personal: As it represents a mission brimming with meaning.

This book is profoundly personal as it represents a mission brimming with meaning.  As I reflect on extraordinary truths about our nation’s health history, current, and future, I also offer you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. We must stop the atrocities if we want to become a healthier nation in the future. We must stop the atrocities if we want the human race to survive. I hope my voice and advocacy will continue to help lead the way and this book will make changes for current and future generations to come. No, I simply do not have all the answers but I have written plenty in this book to make you start questioning EVERYTHING.

What you are about to discover is terrifying.

From the Author:

We are in a war for the sake of all of humankind. Clean water, clean food, clean land, and clean air is something we should not have to demand. Forced vaccines, misrepresented disproportionately medications, media propaganda, and endorsed environmental toxins are something from a fictional Hollywood movie but unfortunately, it is our current America. They create hate among us individually; it makes their job so much easier.  Divide and conquer. Blinded by fake narratives to keep our attention away from the atrocities currently done to the American people.

It is every living being right on this planet to have a healthy planet but yet it is also humanity’s responsibility as one of the smartest species on the planet to not pillage, plunder and destroy this given privilege. Perhaps, evolution made a mistake allowing us humans to be the dominators over the animal kingdom.

They view us as disposable lab rats with a dollar sign attached to our ears like animals heading to slaughter.   

 Why do you believe what you believe? At some point in your life, you trusted the information that you learned and that person told you how to read the language that you speak, count numbers, and learn to spell. The things you learned help to form our perception of what we believed to be facts. You have listened to, read, and watched a ton of content from birth until now. Have you ever stopped and listened to the content that you are viewing? Motion pictures, television shows, social media, and the news are the world’s greatest forces for influencing the public’s thoughts and opinions. Think about a movie you seen like Jaws for example. Did that make you scared to go into the ocean? How about the movie Top Gun? Did you all of a sudden want to become a pilot and a freedom fighter for justice? Think about when you are listening to the radio while driving, on some sort of social media app, watching television, or watching a movie at the theaters; what are you listening too? One word. Programming. Since birth, we have been programmed by television shows, movies, music, games, and now social media. Our government has always controlled our content but we have never paid attention to it. Now, what if they did not have our best interests in mind. Would you change your views if you found out this to be true? The gatekeepers want to control us. Years of research has left a missing element in my quest for the truth. This desire for the answers is the reason why I must continue to seek it out. This is why I have become an alchemist by heart and by nature. There is a means to teach, transform the health of others, and to show people how to prolong their life. 

However, sharing my research was and always will be the intention of all my books. I find that the more I research, study, root for facts, the more questions come to the surface and I am thrown further into that proverbial rabbit hole.  Imagine driving a beautiful freshly washed red car with shiny rims down an old dusty, dry, dirt road on a hot summer’s afternoon that has not seen rain in months. I can see my destination in the distance but it seems like I have been driving for hours, the longer I drive, the more dust and fine sand swirl around my car like a terrible dust storm from the ground, and soon the luster coated completely in the fine powder of discovery.

Insanity has roamed through our nation far too long, cloistered in a proverbial dark closet sits all the answers when you decide to take that leap of faith into the unknown. The enormous influence of dictatorship that wields over the American people has to end. The early and ongoing stages of crimes against humanity must stop.     

I take it as a compliment when people say that I am a conspiracy theorist. You see, I have challenged what others deem as normal. I deeply research topics then I use logic and my very own critical thinking skills to form an educated opinion instead of blindly perceiving what to believe or pushed onto a hamster wheel.  

I certainly do not follow the “programming” that many are so very use to either.

The term “conspiracy Theorists” mentioned by the CIA with the means to discredit the claims of anyone who questioned what was going on and to discredit information from leaking out about their activities. Therefore, when you hear someone deemed as a “conspiracy theorist” you really would not take him or her seriously, because you have been programmed to think this way. I am a “conspiracy realist” who prefers to be known as a well-informed, free thinker, who bases her opinion on science and research. Who also keeps her eyes open to the world around. My name is A.L. Childers, and I am an internationally recognized published author, blogger, and a Holistic Health Coach.  My gift to the world is that I am a seeker for the truth, a patriot for justice, and an advocate for human health.  I have a voracious appetite for pulling back the curtain on topics.

Health is the foundation of life. Money and freedom do not mean a lot if you do not have a healthy planet nor healthy people to live on it. The power of freedom will transform lives but when people are sick, in bondage and repressed there is a limit to what they can achieve.

There needs to be a genuine shift in the American healthcare industry, the Food Industry, and the Chemical industry. It should begin with the entire establishment, our leaders who refuse to sway or waiver in their integrity for profit, our environment, our agricultural system, the environmental chemicals, personal care products, and the nutrient nutritional factors in which foods sold to the public. Our capitalistic America; the current corporate-dominated system of bureaucracy would not stand for such a major shift in changing their bottom dollar of profit over people.  

Americans simply will not ever start healing our health issues if we do not start fighting back, demanding change, and essentially begin to understand why people are struggling with more chronic disease, chronic pain, and more obese than ever before in the history of our beautiful county. I am proud to be an American. The song by Lee Greenwood always gives me chills, brings tears to my eyes, and when I sing it I feel it in every part of my being.      

After becoming critically ill with a “so-called” long-term condition.  I healed myself with research, knowledge, and courage (induced by our toxic food, metal loaded toxic vaccines, a chemically enhanced water system, and current “health” care system practice); it has become the most important mission for me to spread the word about how dispensable we are to our capitalistic culture. I became a warrior for truth, freedom, and health. Our survival needs to have access to eat clean wholesome foods, clean air, and to be able to move without pain. We should be able to thrive happily into old age without the need for assistance while the importance of not having to take medications daily or being forced with toxic injections.

I am offering you an olive branch of wisdom while you travel with me down the proverbial rabbit hole.  I do hope that I will plant a seed where you will become more aware if you are not already and start asking the questions, doing your research, and realizing exactly how America is the land of the sick. The visual propaganda that we have all been lead to believe is a complete lie. This whole charade is about creating more sickness, selling more drugs, and propping up a complete medical industry. We are being fed fake foods that are processed, chemically laced, and resemble real food along with slowly poisoned by our very own environment. 

There are higher powers that are controlling the narrative and they are brainwashing all of us.

 Now for their encore, pushing for forced vaccinations as soon as they rush one thru, another one soon is to follow and by the same ones who think that we are here for harvesting, debt bondage, and forced labor.    

As human beings, we have the unique capacity to make rational decisions about our everyday lives. Being an American, we have the freedom of choice and that is a great human right.

Let us re-write humanity’s health story in many more ways than one.

Mother Earth is sick and she is suffocating. 

Nature will always win in the end long after humanity has left this earth.

We have work to do!

The truth is “learned” and never told.

Dire Warning About Economy As Inflation Soars Under Biden

Author A.L. Childers warned late on Friday that “hyperinflation” would change life as people know it, it’s happening now, and it’s going to hit the U.S.

“Hyperinflation is going to change everything. It’s happening,” Childers wrote on her blog ( The hypothyroidismchick.com), later adding, “It will happen in the U.S. soon, and so the world.”

“Hyperinflation is a term to describe rapid, excessive, and out-of-control general price increases in an economy,” Investopedia explained. “While inflation is a measure of the pace of rising prices for goods and services, hyperinflation is rapidly rising inflation, typically measuring more than 50% per month.”

The blog comes with consumer price inflation running near a 30-year high in the U.S. and growing concern that the problem could be worse that policymakers have anticipated.

On Friday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell acknowledged that inflation pressures “are likely to last longer than previously expected,” noting that they could run “well into next year.” The central bank leader added that he expects the Fed soon to begin pulling back on the extraordinary measures it has provided to help the economy that critics say have stoked the inflation run.

A report from Bloomberg News last month said that one of the top concerns that clients of UBS Group AG have is “whether central banks’ massive stimulus could trigger hyperinflation.”

Former McDonald’s USA CEO Ed Rensi told FOX Business this week that Democrat President Joe Biden’s policies were “dramatically” impacting the supply chain crisis and inflation.

“I first experienced this back during the 70s, up into the 80s when we had stagflation, where prices of fuel [were] going up like crazy,” he said. “Transportation was limited. Distribution was limited. We had to raise prices. We had to address our opening and closing schedules in restaurants modified to menus, and we’re going through it again.”

“It’s been exacerbated clearly by COVID. But it’s also been impacted dramatically by the policy changes that President Biden made even before he was inaugurated,” Rensi added. “When he said he’s going to shut down oil, shut down the pipelines, move away from fossil fuel.”

Biden’s approval rating has plummeted in recent months as inflation has continued to skyrocket under his watch.

Larry Summers, who served as Treasury Secretary under former President Bill Clinton and director of the National Economic Council under former President Barack Obama, warned this month that inflation is “worse” than expected.

“Well, I think we now have a gathering storm of inflation,” he continued. “And we’re likely to see some combination of that storm coming to fruition, or the central bank being forced to act to contain inflation with potentially serious financial consequences, or some combination of those two things. We’ve had labor market inflation wages at a seven and a half percent rate in the last month, we’ve had consumer price inflation close to a 6% rate over the last six months. We’ve had houses causing price inflation at over 20% over the last year, and almost none of that has yet been reflected in the price indices. I think they’re very serious reasons for concern.”

Tainted Water

Having access to clean water may be a fundamental human right, but it is far from a real reality in many towns and cities across our America.

Estimated that tens of millions of Americans across our vast land are still exposed to unsafe drinking water every year.

The U.S. drinking water is full of contaminants such as manufactured “forever chemicals”.  The chemicals, resistant to breaking down in the environment, are known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS. Based on an unpublished U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data, more than 110 million Americans may be contaminated with PFAS have been linked to cancers, liver damage, low birth weight, and other health problems.

The EPA has known since 2001 that there was a problem with PFAS in our drinking water but has so far failed to do anything about it.

These are not the only way water can be contaminated.  Radium, arsenic, lead, copper, chlorine, fluoride, industrial waste from spraying crops, mercury from industrial waste sites, microorganisms like bacteria and parasites that get in the water from human or animal feces, Radioactive substances can leech into groundwater and nitrates that are used in fertilizers.

How do you check your water?

Your county health department will help you test for bacteria or nitrates. You can find one in your area by calling the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791 or visiting http://www.epa.gov/safewater/labs.

What can I do?

Well, for the one you can buy a water filtration system that is awesome. 

This is what I use. Per its website.

( No, I am not making any profit off this)

Berkey Water Filter is the world’s most powerful and cost-effective personal water purification systems, providing reliable and user-friendly water purification at home or from any freshwater source. Our filters are gravity fed, so no need for electricity or water pressure. They will purify water from bacteria, viruses, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful toxins.

Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). This is much longer than the majority of water filter solutions on the market.

We need treatments, medications, and procedures. Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears. That hidden barcode on our forehead. 

 Berkey Water Filters will remove:

Bacteria like E. coli – Greater than 99.9999%

Chlorine – Removed to Undetectable Levels

Heavy Metals – Greater than 99.9%

Viruses – Greater than 99.9999%

Pharmaceuticals – Greater than 99.5%

Chloramines – Greater Than 99.9%

Parasites – Greater than 99.9999%

Fluoride – Up to 99.75% (Add-on PF-2 Filters Required)

Trihalomethane (THMs) – Removed to Undetectable Levels

Petroleum Contaminants – Greater than 99.9%

Bisphenol-A (BPA) – Greater than 99.9%

Radiological – Greater than 95%

Perfluorochemicals (PFOA) – Greater than 99.9%

Toll-Free: (888) 330-9593

In addition, another interesting thing I came across is the chemicals used to make water drinkable slowly poisoned the land.

So, what happens when we become sick?

We need treatments, medications, and procedures.

Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears.

That hidden barcode on our forehead.  

The truth is bigger than we all are.  

We are easily disposable to those in power.

The industry for profit over people is mean, nasty, greedy, and sinister. Everything I feared is true.

There is a war raging against humanity and our earth.  We have been passively indoctrinated and so utterly pre-programmed that we do not ask the questions that need to ask. We have laid our trust completely in those in power or someone with a title behind their name. People conditioned blindly believing in things simply because enough people assured us it was true. Infectious diseases have been irradiated but chronic diseases are the new black plague of our modern time. This book is profoundly personal as it represents a mission brimming with meaning.  As I reflect on extraordinary truths about our nation’s health history, current, and future, I also offer you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. We must stop the atrocities if we want to become a healthier nation in the future. We must stop the atrocities if we want the human race to survive. I hope my voice and advocacy will continue to help lead the way and this book will make changes for current and future generations to come. No, I simply do not have all the answers but I have written plenty in this book to make you start questioning EVERYTHING.

What you are about to discover is terrifying.

Discover How I Lowered My High Blood Pressure Naturally and Put My Hypothyroidism in Remission-Naturally!

hbp1

There was a time not to long ago that my blood pressure seemed to never get below 153/95 and  this was on a good day. Most days it was 165/101. I eat incredibility well. I manage my stress the best that I can and I exercise. My weight isn’t high. I stay between my normal range of 143-150 and my height is 5’6. Why is my blood pressure so high? My doctor knows how I am about medications. He kept saying,” Watch those #’s if it doesn’t come down after the next few visits you will need to go on blood pressure medication” . My mother had a stroke from high blood pressure, so, I was very well aware of what high blood pressure can do. So much aware that I was driving my family crazy with always checking my blood pressure morning , noon and night. Before my feet hit the floor in the morning, I took my blood pressure upon waking.

The American Heart Association defines normal blood pressure as a systolic reading less than 120 mmHg and a diastolic reading less than 80 mmHg. Prehypertension is defined as a systolic reading of 120 to 139 mmHg or a diastolic reading of 80 to 90 mmHg. High blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension is defined as a systolic reading greater than 140 mmHg or a diastolic reading greater than 90 mmHg (stage 1).

I believe that most medications  Americans rely upon can be hazardous to their  health. According to the CDC around 300,000 people are rushed each year to the ER because of adverse drug reactions. I also believe that we are  guinea pigs to the drug companies who allow drugs on the market before really knowing the possible side effects and the FDA allows this to happen and meanwhile they are getting rich off our sickness.

It is estimated that over 200,000 people die each year from medication-related deaths which makes  the third or fourth leading cause of death in this country. Doesn’t the magical bean or pill  sound so much worse than actually having the disorder or disease?

I know, my thyroid plays a very important role in my body. It talks to  all the cells in our bodies instructing them on what they need to do.

Every Cell in your body responds to the foods you eat, the products you put on your body to the house hold chemicals that you purchase for your home. All of these things have a direct impact on your hormones and in return your hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body. Not to mention that our body is lacking certain nutrients that heavily influence the function of every cell in our body. The foods that we consume, oh, the foods we consume.

Previous studies have shown that there is a common link between hypothyroidism and diastolic hypertension aka High Blood Pressure.

Hypertension is something to be taken very seriously. According to the American Heart Association, about 77.9 million adults have high blood pressure . This means that about 1 out of every 3 people in the United States has this condition. Hypertension contributes to one out of every seven deaths in the United States, and approximately 70% of those who have a first heart attack or stroke or who have heart failure have hypertension. And while medication can effectively help to manage hypertension in many cases, according to the statistics, 47.5 percent of people with high blood pressure do not have it controlled.

Most people with hypothyroidism have lower blood pressure.

 

I was prescribed the  thyroid drug Synthroid (levothyroxine sodium).  I’ve been taking it for years. Synthroid (levothyroxine), a synthetic thyroid hormone that is actually the fourth most prescribed medication in the United States.  Synthroid only replaces T4, leaving your body to convert this to T3 (triiodothyronine, the biologically active form of the hormone). Most people cannot effectively convert the T4 in synthetic thyroid preparations to T3, which may explain why research has shown that a combination of T4 and T3 is often more effective than T4 alone.

The conversion to T3 can be halted by nutritional deficiencies such as low selenium, inadequate omega-3 fatty acids, low zinc, chemicals from the environment, or by stress.

So oftentimes taking T4 alone will result in only partial improvement.

“There is an interesting journal article written Dr. Sara Danzi and Dr. Irwin Klein, and in the article it is discussed how T3 is an important regulator of gene expression in the heart, and many of the cardiac manifestations of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are associated with changes in T3-mediated cardiac gene expression . This article also discussed how several important cardiac gene products play a role in regulating cardiac contractility, and that T3 is important when it comes to muscle contraction. The same article also discusses how thyroid hormone is important in coordinating the electrochemical and mechanical responses of the myocardium.”

So, with all this being said. I realized with a light bulb moment that  it was my T4 only medication contributing to my higher than normal blood pressure. I needed a combined T4 and T3 therapy. Along with perhaps that my body wasn’t converting to T3 due a nutritional deficiency such as low selenium, inadequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids, low zinc or chemicals from the environment, or by stress.

Natural thyroid products, like Armour thyroid are a combination of T4, T3 and T2 made from desiccated, or dried, porcine thyroid. In fact, one study clearly demonstrated that patients with hypothyroidism showed greater improvements in mood and brain function if they received treatment with Armour thyroid than if they received Synthroid.

Not everyone does well on a NDT, some do better on synthetics, especially when they have Hashimoto’s. The similarity of pig thyroid to human thyroid can encourage lymphocyte attacks on the thyroid gland.

What did I do to start bring it down?

Tips To Lowering High Blood Pressure

So how I started to effectively lower high blood my pressure? I started looking at foods that naturally lowered your blood pressure along with combining it with my hypothyroidism diet. Sounds complicated. No, not really. Nothing a little research couldn’t fix. No worries, though my friend. I am going to tell you what I ate and how I incorporated it into my hypothyroidism diet.

1. Start with a food journal. Keep track of everything that you put in your mouth, what you drink and the products that you use on your body. Printable Click on the link Food Journal  

salt

2. Sodium.  Monitor your sodium intake. An ideal limit of no more than 1,500 mg.  The average American’s sodium intake is so excessive, even cutting back to no more than 2,400 milligrams a day will significantly improve blood pressure and heart health.  This goes without saying,  until you can get it under control. Eating salt raises the amount of sodium in your bloodstream and wrecks the delicate balance, reducing the ability of your kidneys to remove the water. The result is a higher blood pressure due to the extra fluid and extra strain on the delicate blood vessels leading to the kidneys.

Here are the approximate amounts of sodium in a given amount of table salt:

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt = 575 mg sodium
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt = 1,150 mg sodium
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt = 1,725 mg sodium
  • 1 teaspoon salt = 2,300 mg sodium

 

3. If you take other medications. Research them. See if they have a history of increasing a persons blood pressure if so you might want to get with your doctor to find another medication that wont raise your blood pressure.   

  • Some medicines can make blood pressure rise. If you have high blood pressure to begin with, it can rise to dangerous levels.
  • Some medications may interact with your blood pressure medicine. This can prevent either drug from working properly.

This is where you have to do some research and most importantly check with your doctor

 

2. Eat a healthy diet. This goes without saying, as eating well is important when dealing with any chronic health condition.eating more foods rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. If your at a loss for recipes you either click on this link and follow the dash diet recipe list or order my new book.  How I Lowered My High Blood Pressure Naturally and Put My Hypothyroidism in Remission-Naturally!  I have over 50 recipes that are catered to lowering your blood pressure as-well as healing that thyroid!

Research suggests a plant-based diet high in potassium and low in sodium will make a difference.

Foods high in potassium give you a better ratio of potassium to sodium. This allows your kidneys to get rid of more sodium through your urine, which lowers your blood pressure.

The Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences establish dietary reference intakes (DRIs) that are used as references/guidelines for micronutrient consumption in the United States . There are currently 13 vitamins and 22 minerals that have been identified as micronutrients essential for normal body function. They are called micronutrients because they are needed by the body in small amounts (mg to µg). Sodium and potassium are two of these minerals; they are essential for water balance, transmission of nerve impulses, and contraction/relaxation of muscle.

The more potassium you eat, the more sodium you lose through urine. Potassium also helps to ease tension in your blood vessel walls, which helps further lower blood pressure. The recommended potassium intake for an average adult is 4,700 milligrams (mg) per day. Just don’t over do it .. You can overdue to much potassium. Eating foods rich in potassium is the way to go, not over the counter potassium supplements unless prescribed or directed for you to take  by your doctor. High potassium foods include beans, dark leafy greens, potatoes, squash, yogurt, fish, avocados, mushrooms, and bananas. You can eat all of these with hypothyroidism

  • Cantaloupe
  • Green vegetables
  • Potato
  • Tomatoes
  • Seeds
  • Mint leaves

 

Berries, especially blueberries, are rich in natural compounds called flavonoids. One study found that consuming these compounds might prevent hypertension, and possibly help to reduce high blood pressure

Potatoes

Potatoes are high in potassium and magnesium, two minerals that can help to lower your blood pressure. They are also high in fiber, which is necessary for an overall healthy diet

Beets

Researchers found that people with high blood pressure saw significant improvements from drinking beetroot juice. The study authors found that the nitrates in the juice brought down the participants’ blood pressure within just 24 hours.

You can juice your own beets or simply cook and eat the whole root. Beetroot is delicious when roasted or when added to stir-fries and stew.

Ingredients

  • Beet root medium sized – 3
  • Celery sticks – 5
  • Green apples – 2
  • 1/2 inch peeled ginger

Directions

  • Core the apples and cut into small chunks.
  • Peel the beet and cut into similar smaller chunks.
  • Chop the celery sticks and blend all together or place in your juicer.

 

Ingredients

  •  Apple — 1
  •  Lemon – 1
  •  Celery stalks – 2
  •  Beet with the leaves – 1
  •  Romaine Lettuce – handful

Directions

  • Core the apple, and slice into small chunks.
  • Cut the beet, chop the leaves.
  • Chop the Romaine.
  • Peel the lemon and blend all of these together or place in your juicer

Ingredients

  • Small Beet – 1
  • Medium sized cucumber – ½
  • Pineapple chunks – 1 cup

Directions

  • Chop the beet
  • Peel and chop the cucumber
  • Add the pineapple chunks along with the rest of the ingredients and blend or place in your juice

Oatmeal

High-fiber, low-fat, and low-sodium foods are just what you want for lowering your blood pressure, and oatmeal fits the bill.

Oatmeal for your breakfast is a great way to charge up for the day.

Bananas

Bananas are a great way to add potassium to your diet. Eating foods that are rich in this mineral is better than taking supplements.

 

2. Exercise regularly. Numerous studies have shown that exercise can help to reduce blood pressure . One study I came across even showed that aerobic exercise can reduce blood pressure in resistant hypertension , which is high blood pressure in people taking anti-hypertensive medication but I  urge you to take it easy when you have hypothyroidism.  We all know that regular exercise is an important part of your overall health. Exercise burns calories to prevent weight gain and helps speed up your metabolism. It is also a releases endorphins to give you those mood-enhancing chemicals. What if I told you that exercise can cause adrenal crashes due to your already high cortisol issues? You could be stressing your thyroid out even more and not even realizing it. Are you exercising but not getting any results? Are you still gaining weight, feeling constantly fatigued, irritable and moody and often battling some other sort of sickness? You could be  actually stressing your body more out by over-exercising.

4. Consider nutritional supplementation  for high blood pressure. Certain supplements have been shown to lower blood pressure. There is evidence that fish oils and CoQ10 can lower blood pressure.

Nutritional support can be used on its own; however, you’ll get the best results if you also make diet and lifestyle changes. Here are my top nutrients for lowering blood pressure:

 

6. Stop smoking. Enough said!  I don’t have to go into all the detailed of how bad it is to smoke. I’m sure you’ve heard all the lectures before. 

7. Drink Hibiscus Tea. 

In a new study, drinking three cups of herbal tea containing hibiscus each day lowered blood pressure. … Overall, drinking hibiscus tea blends lowered systolic blood pressure — the top number in the blood pressure reading — by an average of 7 points. I know it did mine!!!

8. Drink Coconut Water

One of the causes for high blood pressure is an imbalance of electrolytes in the blood. … Modern researchers say the potassium content in coconut water plays a huge role in lowering blood pressure. Both potassium chloride (seen in supplements) and potassium citrate (seen in foods) can help lower blood pressure.

9. Eat Garlic

In double-blind studies with garlic preparations providing a daily dose of at least 10 mg allicin, blood pressure readings dropped with typical reductions of 11 mm Hg for the systolic and 5.0 in the diastolic within a 1 to 3-month period. To get enough allicin, eat 1 to 4 cloves of fresh garlic a day

I have a wonderful drink mix that I consume every day!

This wonderful tonic can be used more than just as a heart health protocol;

it’s been proven to reduce cholesterol, heal hemorrhoids, clear out arteries for your heart, reduce blood pressure, stop colds in their tracks, ease constipation, heal ulcers, promote weight loss, treats respiratory issues, and you can even put it on a cotton swab and treat acne  and pimples. This hasn’t been proven, but I also have a theory that I jokingly say, “It repels vampires and unwanted friends who get to close in your personal space.” I’ve seen various different ways to make it. This is how I make it.  Put 3 tablespoons in a glass of water on an empty stomach daily. Garlic, ginger, and even lemon can interact with certain medications. Please check with your health care provider to make sure that you won’t have any adverse medication reactions if you plan on taking this as a drink with other medications.

10 gloves of garlic

1 cup of raw honey

1 cup of organic apple cider vinegar

2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled

2 lemons, washed and cut

Blend, strain, and store in a mason jar in the refrigeration.

 

10. Heart Healthy Hawthorn

Hawthorn is used for diseases of the heart and blood vessels such as congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, and irregular heartbeat. It is also used to treat both low blood pressure and high blood pressure, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), and high cholesterol.

11.Addressing the Root Cause!

I needed to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in my body. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism wasn’t just here take this pill and it will fix my issues. Hypothyroidism had a root cause. Once I started addressing the root of your problems then my body can start healing itself. My body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If I had  something in my body that is overworked  it can cause a major shift in my body.  Two things I needed to  start doing immediately is getting my immune system in check and decreasing inflammation. Inflammation disrupts the production and regulatory mechanisms of thyroid hormones. Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why I had hypothyroidism. It could be a wide range of things from  celiac disease, Hashimoto’s, leaky gut,  autoimmune disease disorder, nutrient deficiency’s, adrenal fatigue, exposure to chemicals, gluten or other food allergies, and hormonal imbalance.  It most defiantly started  with the foods that I was eating and the chemicals in the environment, my thyroid could  be influenced by many different circumstances. I needed to start figuring out what the root cause of my hypothyroidism was.
