Spiritual Secrets of Hypothyroidism

spiritual-1

I had no interest in becoming a writer. I’ve never cared too much about reading books, writing and being in English class did nothing for me. Upon having finally succumbed to writing , I now realize what no teacher in a classroom couldn’t possibly show me – Writing about Hypothyroidism is actually saving my life mentally, physically and spiritually.

Writing about Hypothyroidism is, in fact,  my life’s triumph on many levels. I am trying to  achieve the impossible while capturing a heart-based approach in the midst of  ill health and unfortunate genetics. As this life proceeds, I find that writing about hypothyroidism takes me into  battle with a remarkably different energy and intention than I’ve ever felt before. The harsh truth is it seems sometimes that we have little control over what the outcomes are and each of us has unique experiences this disease that has been created for us. It makes us feel vulnerable that we are led to believe we have very little control over what may transpire. This is one of the most negative aspects of this cruel affliction. I am no hero but I stand for a higher purpose and my vibration that I want you all to know and feel is that when I am writing about hypothyroidism I have on my  Armour  and my intentions are simply pure protection, grounded in love, filled with compassion and searching for true aspiration.

Writing about hypothyroidism has given me different aspect in my quest. My vision has changed in along the way.  “I did not necessarily feel that we are being heard, taking seriously  and its being sweep under the rug, as other things”.  We have allowed modern day technology along with unknowingly accepting and believing what our doctors  say to make us think that being cured from hypothyroidism is a false belief that our bodies will only heal entirely on medications.

Everything we accept in Western society without question serve to show no purpose to our lively hood and you must realize just how much we’ve been conditioned away from our intuitive instinct.  It’s actually pretty ridiculous and very harmful on so may levels just  how collectively we continue these beliefs that our doctors know everything we know nothing.

I will continue to rise and stand up for you.  Research the truths. Find the answers that so many of us are seeking. When I am told  ‘no’ and ‘I can’t’ .  I will push through and continue to prove that all our lives matter. This is what , ‘It’s what I’m here to do’ and I will continue to search for the truth.

When I am writing, sitting behind my computer , I am not a woman following the rules of a what modern day technology is feeding us. I want you to know that you have extraordinary powers perfectly given to you from God. Just like me, he has  giving us permission to tap into them, and draw on them, at any time, at any place. It’s like a downward flow from a river. We are not a meaningless natural process.  Each of us has a Purpose. We must find that purpose and step into our paths.

You have a spiritual secret that you must tap into that has been giving to you along with your hypothyroidism.

One of the 1st things we have forgotten is to follow nature’s path and live in balance with it. You see you have everything you need to heal your hypothyroidism but you must apply it. Every cell in our body responds to the foods we eat, the products we put on our bodies and the household chemicals that we come in contact with every day.  Take a step back. Look at your life. Read labels and stop over loading your body with shit it doesn’t recognize and certainly doesn’t know what to do with.

Another thing we have forgotten is how what we say out mouths can block our blessings.  Words have power and when you speak the negative thoughts out of your mouth you are blocking your blessings and giving those words power over your life. Negative words and thinking will keep us captive. Stop unknowingly choking your own blessings with negative thoughts and words that you speak.

Prayer for today:

Lord, please help me to get out of my own way so I don’t miss out on the wonderful things You have for me. Help me to remember that Your promises are true and You have always and will always provide my every need. Your word says, that You will bless me, exceedingly, abundantly and above all that I can ask or think.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen!

pictureflowerlock

 

A day in the life of me!

There are two types of secrets. There are the ones you keep to protect your self-interest And there are the emotional secrets, which you keep because they might break a social taboo that you have with your friends or followers.

We have come to expect “untruths”  from every public forum, starting with the guests on TV chat shows, and ending with hoaxes on Twitter. Social media has made it so easy to blend our lives with others.  The way you present yourself online can be a pretty telling expression of your identity, who you really are and this is why some people choose to keep their social media presence hidden. “Sometimes I want to put content out into the world without necessarily letting just anyone see me”. I don’t want to be left feeling vulnerable. ” If that makes any sense.

 

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  This is what I eat and how my day pretty much goes. I have to say  If you constantly feed your body crap then you are making it susceptible to inflammation, virus’s and disease. I want to help you become successful in your healthy journey by applying the empowering techniques many of my blogs have to offer. This article has been written by a person who has had real struggles with a hypothyroidism but has worked through them. I am going to “keep it real” with you.

I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed. I hope this  Article of me sharing a life in the day of me might help you.

On any  social media site and you will see SHARE buttons. if you find this blog share worthy please do.

Thyroid medication with 24oz of lemon water

Lemons – While lemons are acidic, once in the body they are alkaline-forming, helping balance the body’s pH levels. Packed with vitamin C, lemons can help fight off infections and illness while detoxifying the liver. Additionally, vitamin C may help to neutralize free radicals to help fight aging. Flavonoids, aka Vitamin P, may strengthen blood vessels and combat high blood pressure. A compound called limonene may even combat cancer. Lemons may even aid in breathing at high altitudes (Edmund Hillary, the first may to climb Mt. Everest, attributed some of his success to consuming lemons!).

I also add 1 tablespoon of black strap molasses.

Black strap Molasses- is a sweet source of a powerhouse punch of nutrition. It’s such a fantastic source of iron, many doctors recommend a tablespoon a day stirred into hot water for those with anemia or related disorders. Blackstrap molasses has  a high amount of magnesium. Magnesium helps your skin look  healthy by fighting eczema, acne and wrinkles; and prevents hair loss and nail breakage. The rich iron content of it c can replace some of the iron levels naturally lost through menstruation, while its calcium content may have an even greater effect. Just imagine a natural PMS fighter! Blackstrap molasses can also gently relieve constipation and who  doesnt need help in that area sometimes? It helps your bones become stronger with it high levels of  magnesium and calcium (along with Vitamin D). Helps to relieve stress and anxiety by given you a boost of  Vitamin B6 will raises serotonin levels in the brain. Lowers Blood Pressure and its even low on the GI scale scoring below 55!

Dry Brushing
Listen up my fellow ladies: The benefits of dry skin brushing are freaking fabulous! It Increases the circulation to the skin and reduced the appearance of cellulite. Helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores, boost circulation, stimulate the lymph nodes and improve digestion.

Jump on my rebounder for 45 minutes

Rebounding is a super gentle exercise that reduces your body fat; firms your legs, thighs, abdomen, arms, and hips; increases your agility; and improves your sense of balance.

Along with having excellent detox and immune building benefits it helps the lymphatic system get rid of that metabolic garbage build up which can be dead and cancerous cells, nitrogenous wastes, infectious viruses and heavy metals. With all this being said why are you not rebounding?

The Real Story behind Hypothyroidism

Fact: Every Cell in your body responds to your thyroid hormones. These hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body.

 

Hypothyroidism is a consequence of actions taken. It is a combination of sequences that you allowed to take  place to get  you to this point in  your life.  Yes, I am pointing the finger at you. I am pointing the finger at myself. I am so busy of “not being aware” and ” grabbing what is easy” that I’ve allowed this to happen. There is this big lie that we all got stuck in.   Listen to me when I say  there’s a major disconnect between what YOU believe to be healthy foods and what research tells us is healthy. In fact, many of the health foods today that people go out of their way to eat daily are extremely thyroid suppressive.

As diseases go, you would think that it would be a cinch to diagnose and pretty straightforward to treat. Each of us are unique individuals with different sensitivities. None of  has the same exact routine as far as what foods we eat, what chemicals we are exposed to and what medications we take but yet we all are similar when it comes to our thyroids not working properly.

First, please give me a moment to explain how the thyroid works.

Hypothyroidism means your thyroid is not making enough thyroid hormone. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your throat. It makes the hormones that control the way your body uses energy. Basically, our thyroid hormone tells all the cells in our bodies how busy they should be.

Most doctors will prescribe you a synthetic version of thyroid hormone called Synthroid (levothyroxine). First introduced in 1959, Synthroid is the third most frequently prescribed drugs in the United States. For the sixty years prior to Synthroid, the standard treatment was a desiccated (dried) concentrate of pig thyroid, which remains popular today, although not nearly as popular as its successor per  Robert Rountree, M.D., who is a physician in private practice and an Herb Research Foundation advisory board member.

How were you diagnosed? Did your doctor just perform a simple TSH test and it showed that you had an elevated presence of  thyroid stimulating hormone in your blood?

TSH is made in the pituitary, a small gland near the center of the brain. When the thyroid gland doesn’t make enough T4, the pituitary increases its production of TSH in an attempt to make the gland work harder. In other words, thyroid hormone production is regulated by a simple negative feedback loop. When a diseased gland fails to make enough T4, the quick and easy solution is to replace it with a synthetic version. Per Robert Rountree, M.D., who is a physician in private practice and an Herb Research Foundation advisory board member.

Hold on. Don’t be so quick to start taking that synthetic version of T4 only medication. Synthetics like thyroxine will eventually destroy the thyroid where you will have to be on some form of thyroid medication for the rest of your life. Also, everything that glitters isn’t gold. There isn’t a one size fits all solution to hypothyroidism. This is why you have to work with your doctor. Requests a full thyroid panel which should at least include these 6 key thyroid labs that are listed below.  Some of us, like I need T3 along with our T4 medication because our T4 isn’t converting into a must needed hormone called T3. This is why most people have partial improvements. Also, the conversion to T3 is affected by nutritional deficiencies such as low selenium, inadequate omega-3 fatty acids, low zinc, chemicals from the environment, or by stress. is your head spinning yet with all this information!

A full thyroid panel for hypothyroidism should at least include these 6 key thyroid lab tests:

TSH

Free T4

Free T3

Reverse T3

Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies

Thyroglobulin Antibodies

 

Environmental chemicals and toxins, pesticides, BPA, thyroid endocrine disruptors, iodine imbalance, other medications, fluoride, overuse of soy products, cigarette smoking, and gluten intolerance. All of these play a very important role in your thyroid health. A nonprofit group called Beyond Pesticides warns that some 60 percent of pesticides used today have been shown to affect the thyroid gland’s production of T3 and T4 hormones. Commercially available insecticides and fungicides have also been involved. Even dental x-rays have been linked to an increased risk of thyroid disorders.

As consumers we put our trust in the research and development of scientific studies, The FDA and  The CDC. Drug store chains have quota’s to meet and even some of our Doctors get yearly bonus’s. Little do we do that behind closed doors corporations often pay scientists and these companies to  support their product for profit.  Some Politicians seem to have a revolving door between the private and public sector.  The synthetic chemicals we face everyday that is in our food, our water, and  the air that we breathe . 

Did you know that products we use every day may contain toxic chemicals and has been linked to women’s health issues? They are hidden endocrine disruptors and are very tricky chemicals that play havoc on our bodies. “We are all routinely exposed to endocrine disruptors, and this has the potential to significantly harm the health of our youth,” said Renee Sharp, EWG’s director of research. “It’s important to do what we can to avoid them, but at the same time we can’t shop our way out of the problem. We need to have a real chemical policy reform.” The longer the length of ingredients on your food label means how much more unhealthy it is for you to consume. When an item contains a host of ingredients that most likely you cant even pronounce or remember to spell you can bet your lucky dollar that the natural nutrients are long gone. These highly processed frank n foods are very difficult for the body to break down and some of the chemicals will become stored in your body. Click on this link to see what you should avoid.

Pesticides, herbicides, GMOs in our food, fluoride and chlorine and trace pharmaceutical residue in the water supplies, methane, carbon monoxide and industrial pollutants in the air, and the toxic chemicals in our everyday household products.

No wonder our bodies are completely bombarded and overwhelmed with the constant exposed to toxic chemicals through the air that we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, and the personal care products and cleaning products we use.

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.

I haven’t used store bought toothpaste in years. I didn’t give up brushing my teeth although sometimes I would like to create my very own six foot “personal space bubble.” My teeth are beautifully white and my breath is always fresh. After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I started researching and was amazed at the things we willingly without even thinking put in or on our bodies that are very harmful to us. I started to take a closer look at all the labels of EVERYTHING and  decided that I needed to divorce my store bought toothpaste.

Most of us just focus on diet in an effort to achieve overall better health, along with proper supplements and working out. Oral health is connected with the rest of the body and it’s easy to forget where the first step of digestion occurs: Yes, in the mouth!

Why would you continue to use toothpastes that include sodium lauryl phosphate, triclosan, glycerin, fluoride, and other potentially harmful chemicals? Just look at the warning labels on a standard tube of toothpaste!

Did you know that your teeth are living and spongy. The foods we eat, the commercial toothpastes, medications and chemicals from drinks all can suck out the minerals from the teeth causing weakened enamel  and leaving us more susceptible to decay and breakdown. I was on a new mission to keep my teeth healthy by using the absolute necessary  and needed trace minerals to maintain the upmost dental health plus find a solution that wasn’t abrasive,  while gently polishing them , and detoxifies while it refreshes. Is there such a thing? I did know that my long history with Mr. Store bought toothpaste were over. Did  you know that a tooth powder could whiten your teeth, remove plaque, and not contain any harmful chemicals or questionable additives?

Sorry, Mr. Toothpaste. I thought we were great together but actually your sucking the life out of me. So, It’s not me. It’s you, and here’s why:

Did you know that fluoride was Once Prescribed as an Anti-Thyroid Drug?   Up through the 1950s, doctors in Europe and South America prescribed fluoride to reduce thyroid function in patients with over-active thyroids (hyperthyroidism). (Merck Index 1968).   If you haven’t already, you should invest in a water filtration system to rid your tap water of fluoride. Do we really know how safe tap water is? Look at the recent events in Flint Michigan! Can you really trust the water companies? Although fluoride concentrations in tap water are relatively low and are considered “safe” for human consumption, it is not. Fluoride has long-term neurological and hormonal affects.  Fluoride is not an essential nutrient.  It is also that chemical that is commonly found in most toothpaste brands.  There is clear evidence that, when ingested at high doses, fluoride causes neurotoxicity. Fluoride also is understood to interfere with the absorption of iodine, possibly leading to an iodine deficiency and ultimately hypothyroidism.  To benefit your health, use fluoride free tooth or make your own tooth paste. Get a good water filtration system and purchase a filter for your shower head. We use a British Berkefeld.

Store bought toothpaste also have other ingredient’s in it like:

Glycerin is used in almost all toothpastes because it helps create a pasty texture and prevents it from drying out. Although it’s non-toxic  it coats the teeth just enough to that prevents normal tooth remineralization.  Remineralization is a whole-body process and in order for it to happen, the body must have adequate levels of certain nutrients, especially fat soluble vitamins and certain minerals.If you want to stop and reverse Tooth Decay you must add minerals in your diet, add plenty of fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K), and your body must be able to absorb vital nutrients. You certainly can’t do this by having a coat on your teeth that will prevent absorption.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a foaming agent and detergent that is commonly used in toothpaste, shampoo, and other products such as degreaser for  car engines.  SLS is an estrogen mimicker. It also increases gum inflammation and mouth ulcers. According  to a study conducted the Department of Oral Surgery & Oral Medicine in Oslo, Norway, individuals who used a toothpaste containing SLS suffered from more ulcers (canker sores) than those who used an SLS-free toothpaste.

Sweeteners: Sorbitol, sodium saccharin and other artificial sweeteners are often used in toothpaste to improve taste, even though there is no evidence that these sweeteners are beneficial (or even safe) for use in the mouth. Xylitol has shown some positive benefits for oral health in some studies, but it remains a controversial ingredient in toothpaste.

Triclosan: A chemical used in antibacterial soaps and products. Triclosan was recently found to affect proper heart function in a study at University of California Davis and the FDA is currently re-evaluating it for safety in human use.

Let’s not forget to mention that many toothpastes also contain artificial colors/dyes or synthetic flavors. I must admit there are several good natural toothpastes out there and I have tried some of them not all but with my tight budget I will make them for pennies on the dollar. My favorite way to brush my teeth is by using tooth powder. Yes, you read this right. Tooth Powder.  Here is my recipe that I use. Feel free to  adjust the ingredient’s based on your own needs. If you have sensitive teeth you might want to skip the baking soda and salt until you can get use to it.

Homemade Tooth Powder Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

Using a stainless steel or plastic spoon, mix all ingredients in a clean glass jar. To use, add a little to a wet toothbrush and brush as normal.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay is a gentle cleanser that is rich in minerals which support tooth remineralization. It’s detoxifiying properties help freshen breath and fight gum disease, while it’s adsorptive properties help remove stains from teeth.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a mild abrasive tooth polish that helps mechanically remove stains while other ingredients such as clay and activated charcoal draw them out. It also helps freshen breath.

Sea Salt

Unrefined sea salts such as this one  contain 60+ trace minerals that aid in tooth remineralization. Salt is also highly antiseptic, which helps keep bacteria in check.

Herb & Spices

Spices and herbs such as clove powder, ground cinnamon, and ground mint add flavoring, but they also have astringent properties that support gum health.

Activated Charcoal

Activated carbon – is made by processing charcoal with oxygen and either calcium chloride or zinc chloride. It was used medicinally by both Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians, and it is still the poison remedy of choice in modern day emergency rooms. Why? Because it’s highly adsorptive, which in plain English means it attracts substances to its surface like a magnet. Like absorptive substances which work like a sponge, adsorptive materials bind with certain compounds and prevent our bodies from using them.

If your not so hip on using powdered tooth then here are some more all natural recipes.

3 Tablespoons of baking soda

15 drops of peppermint food grade essential oil

Homemade Coconut Oil Toothpaste Recipe

6 tbsp. baking soda

15-20 drops of a food grade essential oil (peppermint essential oil  )

Melt to soften the coconut oil. Mix in other ingredients and stir well. Place your mixture into small glass jar. Allow it to cool completely. When ready to use just dip toothbrush in and scrape small amount onto bristles.

This is a must read powerful book. The Fluoride Deception documents a powerful connection between big corporations, the U.S. military, and the historic reassurances of fluoride safety provided by the nation’s public health establishment. The Fluoride Deception reads like a thriller, but one supported by two hundred pages of source notes, years of investigative reporting, scores of scientist interviews, and archival research in places such as the newly opened files of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Energy Commission. The book is nothing less than an exhumation of one of the great secret narratives of the industrial era: how a grim workplace poison and the most damaging environmental pollutant of the cold war was added to our drinking water and toothpaste.

FACT: The number of people suffering from hypothyroidism continues to rise each year. Levothyroxine is the 4th highest selling drug in the U.S.

It seems the current medical industry has  been abducted by the pharmaceutical industry. In our society we have become so blinded by the Big Pharma propaganda. Once you are labeled with a disease or a condition most of the  medications prescribed have horrible side effects and can lead to other issues but in reality these medications only mask the real issue at hand.

“Our prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Our drugs kill around 200,000 people in America every year, and half of these people die while they do what their doctors told them—so they die because of the side-effects,” said Dr. Gotzsche in his recent interview. “The other half die because of errors—and it’s often the doctors that make the errors because any drug may come with 20, 30 or 40 warnings, contraindications, precautions…and then the patients die.”

 NSAIDs as an example of only one group of medications, are fatally toxic to thousands of people each year by damaging joints, lungs, kidneys, eyes, hearts, and intestines and they are covered by insurance companies.

This should come to you as no surprise but some  physicians actually receive compensation from the drug industry aka “Big Pharma”. (Choudhry, JAMA 2002; 287: 612-617). Also, our part of the government that is in charge of approving drugs called the FDA has advisers with financial ties  (and is heavily lobbied by) the very drug industry that is seeking its approval. And as the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association warm, even the hired clinical investigators for new drugs may have their price. ‘  Did you know that 70 percent of Americans  are taking prescription drugs? 

Even some of our most prestigious journals publish research based on falsified studies, according to Charles Seife, a journalism professor whose class spent a semester trying to figure out why the data doesn’t get corrected once research fraud comes to light.  “As a result,” Seife writes, “Nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses.”. Is Big Pharma America’s New Mafia? 

Light Bulb Moment: Why can’t we cure what ails us without pharmaceuticals? 

Now, if you read anything in this blog make sure you hear me when I say, ” Don’t stop taking your medications”. You need to work with a doctor ,be monitored and follow their instructions. Your body might need those prescriptions and if you suddenly stop taking them, it might kill you. Therefore, you need to closely work with a Certified Naturopath Doctor in your area.

Throughout history medical science has sometimes been proven to not be that true in their “research” . These words like case studies, credible scientific evidence, scientifically tested,  scientific experiments and scientifically proven facts are all merely “theories” until they are proven wrong.

  • · Bloodletting was once proven to cure most illnesses. Now it is considered totally ineffective.
  • · Margarine was considered much healthier than butter. Now research suggests that the exact opposite is true.
  • · Eggs were considered very bad because of high cholesterol. Now research suggests that they are not bad at all, and they are actually healthy for the body.
  • · Chocolate and oily foods were touted to be a cause of acne. Now research suggest s that they do not contribute in any way to acne.
  • · Medical doctors touted that baby formula was much better than breast milk for children.Now the exact opposite is shown to be true.
  • · Milk was recommended for coating the stomach and alleviating stomach ulcers. Now it is discouraged and has been found to aggravate ulcers.
  • · Medical science stat ed that diet had absolutely no effect on disease or illness. Now we are told t hat diet has a huge effect on the prevention and cause of disease.

16 Quotes On Poisons… I mean those magic Drugs our medical quacks prescribe.

1. “The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians superstitiously give in order to effect a cure.” Charles E. Page, M.D.
2. “The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning.” Henry Lindlahr, M.D.
3. “Every educated physician knows that most diseases are not appreciably helped by medicine.” Richard C. Cabot, M.D. (Mass. Gen.Hospital)
4. “Medicines are of subordinate importance because of their very nature they can only work symptomatically.” Hans Kusche, M.D.
5. “If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity” O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Med. Harvard University)
6. “Drug medications consists in employing, as remedies for disease, those things which produce disease in well persons. Its materia medica is simply a lot of drugs or chemicals or dye-stuffs in a word poisons. All are incompatible with vital matter; all produce disease when brought in contact in any manner with the living; all are poisons.” R.T. TraIl, M.D., in a two and one half hour lecture to members of congress and the medical profession, delivered at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.
7. “Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature’s protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time.” Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
8. “Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition.” Robert Henderson, M.D.
9. “Medicine is only palliative, for back of disease lies the cause, and this cause no drug can reach.” Wier Mitchel, M.D.
10. “The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine.” William Osler, M.D.
11. “Medical practice has neither philosophy nor common sense to recommend it. In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By taking drug – medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further embarrassed and harder to cure.” Elmer Lee, M.D., Past Vice President, Academy of Medicine.
12. “Our figures show approximately four and one half million hospital admissions annually due to the adverse reactions to drugs. Further, the average hospital patient has as much as thirty percent chance, depending how long he is in, of doubling his stay due to adverse drug reactions.” Milton Silverman, M.D. (Professor of Pharmacology, University of California)
13. “Why would a patient swallow a poison because he is ill, or take that which would make a well man sick.” L.F. Kebler, M.D.
14. “What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?” John H. Tilden, M.D.
15. “The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned.” Charles Armbruster, M. D.
16. “We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs.” Robert Mendelsohn, M.D

Are you starting to see my point?

The root cause of nearly all diseases can be linked to  an overload of toxins and chemicals accumulating inside your body.  Most people ignore the toxic overload that is taking a toll on their bodies. Western medicine teaches us that almost all illnesses are caused by germs or genetics. So the money making solution is to slap a name on it. Label each disease (over 10,000 of them) and then have us believe that each one can be remedied by surgery or drugs.

Think about it  this– fish can’t live in toxic water, no matter how fancy the food is that you’re feeding them.

Neither can our bodies thrive if they are toxic.

5 Things you need to working on.

#1: Immune System

#2: Digestive System

#3: Inflammation

#5:  Start Being Aware

……

” I don’t know where to start.”

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  You can start by taking ownership of your health. I wanted you to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in your body. I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed.

3 Primary Factors Leading to Underactive Thyroid 

1.Your Diet- avoid Gluten, Soy and start adding foods rich in iodine.

 2.Stress-

Stress is one of the worst thyroid offenders, as your thyroid function is intimately tied to your adrenal function, which in turn is intimately affected by how you handle stress.

Many of us are under chronic stress, which results in increased adrenalin and cortisol levels, and elevated cortisol has a negative impact on thyroid function. Thyroid hormone levels drop during stress, while you actually need more thyroid hormones during stressful times.

When stress becomes chronic, the flood of stress chemicals (adrenalin and cortisol) produced by your adrenal glands interferes with thyroid hormones and can contribute to obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, unstable blood sugar, and more. A prolonged stress response can lead to adrenal exhaustion (also known as adrenal fatigue), which is often found alongside thyroid disease

3.Environmental Chemicals-Your thyroid hormones are very vulnerable to chemicals in the environment.

Honestly, What it’s Really Like To Have Hypothyroidism?

 

There no real way to sugar coat having hypothyroidism, I like to call it  “ The Invisible Disease”. Many people with hypothyroidism  often feel as if  they’ve  lost control over their own bodies and mental health. Some people are blessed to only have a few symptoms and others seem as if every area of their functioning life has been affected by this disorder.  A lack of energy, anxiety, depression, weight gain, scary heart palpitations, brain fog, our sleeping cycles are disrupted, thin eye brows,  body temperature, appetite, fertility, hair loss, constipation, increased or decreased blood pressure,  numbness in your finger tips, an emotional roller coaster, aches and pains that you can’t explain are only a few things associated with having hypothyroidism. The simplest tasks can seem like the hardest. Many of us don’t really understand the whole life impact of our condition, because the wide ranging  symptoms of hypothyroidism are often brushed off as being part of everyday life, stress or getting older.

After being diagnosis you were probably relieved and excited to finally have an answer, some kind of answer,  to what have been going on with your body but soon you were disappointed again only to find out that  the thyroid medications that you thought was going bring you back to yourself only fixed a few of your symptoms and your still having to deal with a dozen more remaining issues. Your are tired of hearing, its all in your head too. You want to scream to the world and let everyone know that your quality of life has drastically been affected and there has to be answers.

Somewhere, Someone, Anyone at this point, hello? Help me , I feel like I am drowning, slowly dying and the world just keeps turning.  Why isn’t anyone listening to me?

You see, the main problem with hypothyroidism is a very tricky condition and complicated disorder to manage. There is no one size fits all program when you are dealing with hypothyroidism.

Your quality of life is affected.

Have you ever stopped to think what the underlying reason to why you hypothyroidism? 

Many different factions can play a role in your thyroid health. We do know that hypothyroidism is a chronic condition of an under-active thyroid in which it affects millions of Americans.  Environmental chemicals and toxins , pesticides, BPA, thyroid endocrine disruptors, iodine imbalance, other medications, fluoride, overuse of soy products, cigarette smoking and gluten intolerance.  A nonprofit group called Beyond Pesticides warns us that 60% of pesticides used today have been shown to affect the thyroids glands production of T3 and T4 hormones. All these commercially available insecticides and fungicides are also just as guilty.

We need a our thyroid in order to live and feel good.  Our thyroid is our master gland of metabolism and energy.  Basically, our thyroid hormone tells all the cells in our bodies how busy they should be. Your cells are not getting enough oxygen and energy that is required for every singly body function to work properly. It impacts our entire body from our head to our feet.

One-thing many  thyroid patients have in common is having to deal with is a world that can’t apprehend our struggles, fails to notice the importance, downplays it at times and sometimes we are even looked down upon for our condition.

Hypothyroidism isn’t “easy to diagnose”e nor is it “easy to treat”.  It’s a shame that a  vast majority of medical professionals are poorly trained in the treatment of hypothyroidism. It’s really is a uncharted territory.

(A tale of caution: Your doctor is trying to provide the best treatment for you within his or her

Knowledge. But doctors are not taught about nutrition in medical school – only about disease. Most doctors do not receive but a few hours training on nutrition during their four years of medical school. The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. It provides much of the funding for research in medical schools and nearly all of the advertising in medical journals. It’s the old GOLDEN RULE: he who has the gold – rules! So doctors learn about medication and disease.)

I wish somebody had given me a step-by-step road-map back when I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism. The solutions in my books have helped so many people. I’ve done my best to pull from all their expertise, as well as my own knowledge and clinical experience. I want to make it easy for you to find the answers quickly, all in the one place, because I’m all too familiar with that awful side effects of hypothyroidism. I certainly don’t want you to have to spend years finding solutions, like I did. I also what you to understand that there isn’t an  easy “one pill” solution, but the “one pill” approach that our current medical system is using is NOT WORKING because the underlying cause for hypothyroidism is not being addressed.

After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism over 25 years ago. I knew there was something more than just being labeled with a medical condition. There wasn’t a lot of information on how to heal myself from the inside out. You really must begin to understand that there really isn’t a one size fits all diet for everyone who is has been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism but there are certain ways you can eat that will certainly help begin the healing process. Diet alone isn’t enough to help your body start fighting this battle that is raging in your body. The food you eat is your first line of defense against hypothyroidism. You must start addressing other areas in your life.

My new purpose is to empower people to embrace who they are, to add value to their life, to inspire them and to connect with those who are struggling with hypothyroidism.  You need to realize that you have to invest in your health. You are worth investing money into yourself and take charge of your health. Will it “hurt” a little? Ha, you bet, but it will change your life.

Look into getting a  Knowledgeable Health Practitioner:

The main reason why you should work with a knowledgeable health practitioner is its  patient-centered medical healing at its best. Unfortunately  when it comes to hypothyroidism there isn’t a one size fits all approach to dealing with it and often times you are left still searching for the answers to your symptoms when all you want is your zest for life back. A knowledgeable health practitioner will care for you as a individual as they won’t look at your body as a whole they will treat each individual body symptom, imbalance and dysfunction. They certainly move from the confusion of the “one size fits all treatment” approach that we know isn’t working to the one that will cater to what you body needs.  Let’s not forget that each of us are a unique case and unless you get a proper thorough clinical evaluation, trying to figure what medical advise you need online is dubious at best.

Hypothyroidism Alternatives Guide To Collagen, Protein and Healthy Bones

BENEFITSOFCOLLOGEN

The latest craze seems to be collagen. As we age, our ability to produce collagen diminishes.  The beauty industry has hyped up collagen so much that I really think they want us to believe that is is the next best thing to the fountain of youth. You’ve probably  heard about how collagen keeps our skin elastic and plump looking. Collagen is one of the primary structural elements of skin, so when our bodies ability to produce collagen diminishes over age its only ideal to help it when it cant create enough on its own.

I find collagen pretty gross. Most collagen supplements are produced from the bones, skin, and connective tissue of animals, including cattle, fish, horses, pigs, or rabbits. The idea of drinking  bones+ connective tissue  from dead animals doesn’t appeal to me at all.  Even if they say its from “grass-fed animals”. YUCK! I do a ton of research about products like vitamins and nutritional supplements trying to be a wise health consumer. I find it very shocking that many  supplements contain several types of fillers + ‘chemically’ or GM derived ingredients and some have been  known to be actually dangerously ‘unhealthy’ for long term consumption.

 

Although collagen supplements or treatments may increase your bodies collagen production and may keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. There’s one little problem: indigestible collagen is being touted as a miracle cure for skin and signs of aging, without much evidence to back up these claims. Therefore , consuming the dried up bones from dead animals doesn’t necessarily mean collagen will increase in your skin.

FACECOLLOGEN

There are other ways, that you can boost your collagen production – and they don’t involve boiled animal parts.

I prefer to get COLLAGEN made from fish the brand I use is a Marine based Collagen and it is sourced from the scales of wild-caught, non-GMO Red Snapper , wild-caught in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii using sustainable harvesting instead of being sourced from the hides of pasture-raised, grass-fed bovine.

 

Vital Proteins Marine Collagen, Wild-Caught, Non-GMO Project Verified, 10.16 Ounces

Other nutrients that support collagen formation include:

  • + Vitamin C: found in oranges, strawberries, peppers, and broccoli
  • + Copper: mostly found in nuts
  • + Vitamin A: found in plant foods as beta-carotene
  • + Proline: found in egg whites, cheese, soy, and cabbage
  • + Anthocyanidins: found in blackberries, blueberries, cherries and raspberries

 

Another  smart way to support collagen production is to eat fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin C. It’s vital in the collagen production process.

  • Citrus fruits: lemons and oranges both contain about 53 mg per 100 grams
  • Broccoli: 89.2 mg per 100 grams( limit your broccoli with hypothyroidism. cooker 2x servings per week)
  • Papaya: 60.9 mg per 100 grams
  • Kiwi fruit: 92.7 mg per 100 grams
  • Kale: 80 mg per cup ( limit your kale with hypothyroidism. cooker 2x servings per week)
  • Red peppers: 95 mg per half cup

The RDA for vitamin C is 90 mg/day for men and 75 mg/day for women, so eating any of the above foods will set you on the right track.

You can also start taking  Garden of Life my kind Organic Plant Calcium – Vegan Whole Food Supplement with D3 and K2, Gluten Free.

  • CALCIUM MAGNESIUM: The mykind calcium magnesium formula includes Vegan D3 from lichen and Vitamin K2 MK7 for bone health and reduced osteoporosis risk
  • PLANT-BASED: 800mg of Plant-Sourced Calcium from Organic Algae
  • EASILY TO DIGEST: Our small easy to swallow tablets of plant sourced calcium magnesium are easy to digest

A letter To My Disgruntled Readers-

My dearest friend or foe ,

for years I’ve been writing blogs , books and trying to educate those who are on a similar path as mine with hypothyroidism. Lately, there’s been something very deep nudging at my very core screaming to come out.  I finally decided to let it seep out of my fingertips into this blog. When I began writing about hypothyroidism, I knew it was a uncharted territory. My mindset was to search the truth, share my experiences and write compelling articles. The more I write, the more polished I become to develop my palate and skill-set. I have found something that I deeply care about and its worth every-bit of cherishing.

While I am grateful for every reader, we may not always agree but keep one thing in mind, you don’t own me, you don’t pay me and you certainly won’t have control over my life. You also don’t have to read my work and you can keep scrolling right along.  If you want to rant against my premised writings or post a rebuttal, I say, go for it.

I write from the heart and share my truth. No one has been “forced” to read me.

I’ve realized that the people who get angry about the content that I write will never buy books, anyway.  You must analyze your own truths and form your own in idea’s.

This Entitlement Mentality that our society has created is a load of crock. What I express in my blogs are purely my views and opinions from the research and readings that I’ve done. I do not claim to have the absolute entire truth; this is simply what I have  concluded at this moment in my life. You can keep your thoughtless one-sided opinions because you will gain no power with me.  In the end, you will only create anger and frustration within yourself.   Maybe something happened in your childhood where you feel the need to lash out and try to gain some sort of power over people with your hurtful words and rants.  At some point, I don’t know where you thought it was okay to blame me for your mishaps  but you need to take personal responsibility for your shit.

As each passing day goes, I continue to learn. As each passing day goes, I continue to grow.

We all have our very own skills and talents that we have to offer the world. I encourage you to find yours and stop being ugly to others because you are not where you want to be in life.

Let’s get on thing straight.

I’m not trying to sell your health. I am trying to open your eyes and give you a purpose to start being healthy.

There is no such thing as something for nothing. So many people don’t listen to their bodies. If you are constantly putting the wrong gas in your car is will start to eventually break down. Your body is the same way. One of the most common failure is the habit of quitting. Don’t allow this type of failure of defeat to trick you into quitting. You are worth great health. You have the abundance of good health within your reach.

Being healthy is a state of mind. When you start to realize that the food you eat, the products you use and the way you live all talk to your DNA. Once you realize that you have a choice to change and you want to change you will change.  You will start to read labels, you will think about what you’re eating, how it was made and will it benefit your body.

Impossible? No! Not at all.

Being healthy does come from those with a healthy conscious.  You and you alone must decide whether or not good health is important. Is good health worth the effort? You see we are wiping ourselves out. It seems with all the bad choices we are ultimately preparing ourselves for our own final destruction’s. We often do choose badly but it’s our choice to do so. The diet industry is a load of bullshit. Eat less, exercise more doesn’t work. None of us should be on the same eating plan.

Why? We are all different.

Many Blessings,

Audrey-xoxo
