Thyroid

Thyroid - Timothy Long - timothylong@longnaturalhealth.com

Here are some of the causes of low thyroid and health problems caused by low thyroid: Causes: High estrogen. Estrogen is everywhere and estrogenic compounds are everywhere; in our milk, milk products, meats and meat products, in and on our vegetables and fruits in the form of pesticides and herbicides, in plastics we come in contact with, in the water chlorine and fluoride, fluoride in your toothpaste, birth control pills, etc. It is stored in the liver, bones, muscles and fats cells. This is one of the reasons for the skyrocketing rate of breast cancer. Polyunsaturated oils are another cause of low thyroid. Not only have people been convinced to use them on their food, but the meat and milk and eggs today have this polyunsaturate fat due to it being fed to the animals (best to eat organic free range or wild animal products). The majority of all this has taken place over the past sixty years. High estrogen and low thyroid are perfect conditions not only for all kinds of cancer, but almost every single disease and illness. Symptoms include low body temperature, fatigue, headaches, menstrual problems, low blood sugar, PMS, menopause symptoms, miscarriage, low IQ, concentration and memory problems, low immunity, masculinization of women and feminization of men, hair loss, overweight and underweight problems, criminal behavior, emotional and mental problems, depression, increased viruses, increased fungus, yeast, and parasites problems. Someone asked if this was a conspiracy? Is chlorine and fluoride in the water supply a conspiracy? I only know that all the information is out there to enjoy good health and to heal most all disease, and Americans commonly abuse their freedom by not educating themselves and taking advantage of all the wonderful health information that exists. They also fail to use their voting power to change the system.

Re:Thyroid - mattew - australia 

Hi folks! i have suffered horribly since 17 myself with hypothrodism. Insomina, no appetite and eczema!!! So i know thyroid well. my temperature is low (below 98.6 C) which should be normal body temp for 100% healthy people. Below it and we SUFFER! btw that test for thyroid with thermoter can be WRONG. i had a willing doctor and a T4 dose at 50 mcg i went HYPER thyroid. Fair Warning here people. That test also tests PITURITY (Growth Hormone) and ADRENALS (Dhea) Output. As in my case low body temps FROM adrenals. low adrenals and thyroid feedback SLOWS DOWN to HYPO levels. i would recommend people start at 5 mg Pregenolone floating around on the web and past 1 month increase it 5 mg each month until body temperature rises into normal 98.6 C. btw for people on the board it benefits memory the MOST! Anyone interested in my point email me! Hope that helps


Re:Thyroid - Susie - Australia 

Suspect I am suffering with Hypothyroidism and will be having blood tests this week.

Re:Thyroid - Dave - Australia  

I have low body temperature, cold hands, tiredness etc. but my body is underweight...this must surely rule out hypothyroidism?....thyroid tests have sugested that everything is normal....can my symptoms be connected to a hyperactive thyroid which may have gone undetected in the thyroid test? or are there any cases where an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) has been responsible for low body weight? Any advice would be most welcome.

I have been on synthroid for 3 years for hypothroidism and last blood check about 6 months ago was good.I'm eating better than I have my whole life and exercising more than I have my whole life yet I'm not seeing results like I think I should.Is it possible lack of weight loss is due to throid? If so is there anything I could do to start the weight loss? Also I find I'm getting extremly tired about 5 :00pm even if my activity level for the day is very low. Any help you can give is appreciated.

Re:Thyroid - Brian - Massachusetts 

I was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and am not too keen on some of the treatment options (ie radioactive iodine or using a drug for a long time). Anyone know a holistic doctor or someone else who can treat this somewhat naturally?


Re:Thyroid - amy - new york  

I have been to the doctors several times and had my thyroid checked. They say that I have no problems, but my sister has hypothyroid, I have been gaining weight, sleeplessness, tiredness, constipation...it seems that I have all the symptoms but the tests come up negative. Any suggestions


Re:Thyroid - Sara - Indiana  

I have a problem a lot like Dave-Australia. I have very cold hands and feet, and my body temp is always low (around 96-97), but for a very long time I was under weight. The only difference is that I had a thyroid test, and it showed a little hyperthyroid. Now I am beginning to gain weight, but I am still always hungry. The doctor that did the thyroid test just told me to ignore the hyper, but my question is, did the hyper end up killing part of my thyroid so I am now hypo, but the hunger is still there from the hyper? The temperature thing has to be wrong sence I am always cold. I am very sensitive to cold, AND heat as well. Can anyone please give me suggestions of what I should do next?


Re:Thyroid - Sara - Arizona  

In the past year, I have noticed a change in my body such as fatigue unlike the "normal" kind just from every day activities. I have also noticed that my hair is so dry and is falling out while washing and brushing it. I've noticed a slight change in my weight(probably due to my lack of energy). I have read some things on hypothyroid, but don't really no where to begin. My blood test came back normal. Is there someplace where I can start finding out what I can do. I feel sick all the time and am just tired of feeling sick and tired. Thanks


Re:Thyroid - Lisa - Illinois  

Okay, here's my question. I seem to have a regular basal temp. My thyroid levels are fine (even lower fine) but I actually have 98% of ALL of the HYPOthyroid symptoms and its really beginning to upset me. Has anyone out there had these problems? Please help. Thanks. ps sick of all of my hair breaking off and falling out and gaining weight especially. Thanks

Re:Thyroid - Patty - Missouri  

I have had an underactive thyroid for 25yrs. A year & a half ago it suddenly went way overactive. Since then My Dr. has had a hard time getting it to stay normal. Two weeks ago I had both ovaries taken out because of a tennis ball size tumor on one of them. What I was wondering is could there be a connection between the two?

Re:Thyroid - tammie - Singapore 

I have an overactive thyroid and have started medication for about 5 weeks. Recently, I noticed that my weight has been increasing even though I haven't been eating more than the usual amounts. I have increased by about 4-6 pounds. Why is that so? In fact the current weight that I'm at is way past the weight that I was at in the past 3 years. This is really depressing. Why is that happening?


Re:Thyroid - Ali - Saudi arabia

Re:Thyroid - Diane - Denver  

I have hypothyroid and have taken levothyroxin for 11 years. Since this condition cycled in at age 40, I believe I can let go of it, also. The body simply responds to what the consciousness is holding. I was able to drop down the dose through self healing, but not let go of it entirely. I was wondering if I combined a dose of 50mcg levothyroxin with your natural thyroid compound, and the adrenal complex- would that be ok. I really want to reduce my dependency on a physician and drug companies. They tend to control my life too much. Also, my present doc is a total scientist, and cannot move beyond the paradigm of medicine to support my efforts of self healing.

Re:Thyroid - Janice - Cleveland, Ohio  

I have many symptoms that I have read are due to hypothyroidism: mainly low appetite, low metabolism, low body temperature, swollen tonge, speech problems, fatigue, a bit of depression, a nodule in the thyroid. I have not been able to find a doctor who will do extensive thyroid tests and treat me with a natural medication (Armour). Is there any doctor to help me in the Cleveland, Ohio area? I need to be helped very soon. I would like to have a great deal of information. Thank you.


Re:Thyroid - alice - North Carolina 

Well, I have been suffering from hypothrodism for about 7yrs. I had hyperthroidism first and would lose 90lbs up and down for a while until they found that i was hyperthyroidism. Then they kill my thyriod with (RAL). And I've been going down hill every since. Now i have hypothyroidism and my body temp is 97.1. I can't seem to do anything but gain weight and my doctor see this and don't address the issue. But when they take my level's they say they are normal. It can be 99 degree's out side and I will not sweat. I have not sweated in so long. I never sweat I need help. Please response soon with any answers you may have.

I have been ill for two years now and am now a coeliac and may have fibromalygia. I have almost all the symptoms of having thyroid problems and it runs in my family.

Re:Thyroid - Timothy Long -  timothylong@longnaturalhealth.com

Concerning posts from people with over active thyroids. The need is to detoxify your bodies of metals and chemicals. The Extended Health Heart Detox/Oral Chelation is very good for this. Also, use green food powders like Premier Greens Powder. And feed your thyroid good nutrition. See Premier ThyroVen. For more detailed and individual help contact me directly.

Re:Thyroid - cathy - usa

Actually I am finding many good and reasonably priced herbal products for hypothyroid for ex: botanic choice has a Thyroid Complex and so does theherbsplace have thyroid support. However, I have only found 2 hyperactive thyroid herbal supplements: hyposmooth which only contains 3 ingredients for almost 40 dollars and one that contains bladderwort that has been contraint(sp) for cardiac problems. Could someone suggest a formulation that not only blocks the overactive thyroid, but helps with symptoms such as insomnia, and holding water and high blood pressure and helps to lose weight(uncommon, yes, i know).


Re:Thyroid - cathy - usa

correction-I am going to try ThyroSoothe from nativeremedies and will let you know if it helps and/or solves the problem just as some testimonials say it does.

Re:Thyroid - Aimee - Washington state  

Dr. Brownstein and also my Internist say that most thyroid problems are caused by Iodine Deficiency. I took the Iodine Deficiency 24 hr urine test and found that I am at 60 and it should be at 150...! So, I am now loading iodine (Iodoral, which is a capsule equal to Lugol's), and, since, I am now Hypo (originally had Graves'), I am on Bio-Thyroid, which is a compounded natural product which is just like Armour, but, it is NOT from a pig and it is standardized, which Armour is not. Synthroid is a really bad drug to take. My sister stopped taking it because she got insomnia from it and it also can cause heart attacks.

To everyone requesting how to self treat their thyroid issues: These conditions are very individually based.

Re:Thyroid - David - Brooklyn, NY  

Hypothyroidism can be CURED relatively easily by drinking a tablespoon of coconut oil in the morning and evening. Use organic coconuts for faster results or organic store bought coconut oil from a health food store. Coconut oil contains capryllic acid and lauric acid. Capryllic acid and Lauric acid kills herpes and other viruses and the parasitic yeast Candida Albicans. Don’t worry about fats in coconut oil as it is an essential fatty acid and is completely burned and utilized by the body. These acids, capryllic and lauric acid, stimulate thyroid production. Kelp and Dulse are rich in Iodine and other organic elements that stimulates the thyroid gland. The liver converts t4 to t3 which are thyroid hormones. If the liver isn’t functioning properly then do a liver/gallbladder flush and this will help the liver to convert t4 to t3. Stop using Iodized salt. It ablates the thyroid gland. In addition, infections cause hypothyroidism. Candida Albicans causes hypothyroidism.
