Psst...have you heard?
I'm in the middle of writing a book called the "Hypothyroidism Detox Solution" and this will be the first time I'll be sharing some of the contents of the upcoming book. I would love to hear your feedback on the writing below or the book topic in general as I continue working on this project, so please leave me a comment below!
In January of 2014, my sister called me up out of the blue and told me that she had just been diagnosed with severe hypothyroidism. I could hear the worry and anxiety in her voice over the phone. She said that her gynecologist had made the diagnosis and referred her to an endocrinologist for additional blood tests and to discuss potential treatment options in about 6 weeks. I proceeded to tell her that things were going to be fine but made it very clear how this scenario was going to inevitably play out if she left things up to her doctors. A lifetime of prescription medication…a thyroid becoming even weaker over time requiring increasing dosages of thyroid medication…and the rest of the body that’s depending on a proper functioning thyroid suffering over time and predisposing her to a variety of chronic illnesses.
I made it clear to her that taking the medication route would require nothing of her, but to get her thyroid back on track, it would require both short term and long term changes. She mentioned that she had heard of another friend with hyperthyroidism that had developed a goiter and who chose to take radioactive iodine treatment to kill her thyroid gland. We discussed how that situation and treatment were a little different than hers, but ultimately that she could keep her thyroid gland and get it functioning again -- but it was going to take some effort. She agreed to implement my suggestions.
During our subsequent conversations, I gained more information about her health history. I had a general idea of some of her health challenges over the years, but we normally don't talk so much about health issues when we catch up with each other on the phone. She’s in her 40’s and I found out that she had dental amalgams (i.e. silver fillings) for most of her life, but about a year ago she had them removed. Within that timeframe of a year, she had started experiencing an increasing amount of symptoms related to hypothyroidism including depression, fatigue, and a low body temperature that often required her to be wrapped in blankets most of the time. The more I began researching the connection between the thyroid and the mercury in her amalgams, the more I began to understand that this diagnosed condition of “severe hypothyroidism” was little more than her thyroid gland and the rest of the cells in her body being negatively affected by accumulated toxins and poisons. I sent her a few articles to read on this connection between toxins and low thyroid function, and a few more articles on the throat chakra and related metaphysical issues involving speaking one’s truth and expressing one’s self.
My sister was a long way from going 80-100% raw, but she agreed to start working more raw foods into her diet, which would serve as the foundation of her detox. I also designed a personalized detox program for her using the "4 R’s of Healing" approach: Remove accumulated toxins, Reduce toxin exposure, Repair damaged cells, and Recharge weak cells. I ordered her organic herbal botanical formulas for the endocrine glands, whole food supplements, clay detox baths targeted towards removing mercury from the body, as well as magnets to perform several magnetic therapy protocols for boosting her immune system, giving her cells more energy to detox accumulated toxins, and regenerating all of the endocrine glands, including the thyroid gland. After working with this approach for 6 weeks, her endocrinologist tested her bloodwork and reported that her thyroid function had returned to normal. This feedback from her doctor corresponded with a dramatic improvement in the symptoms she had been experiencing for the past year. My sister was very happy with the news and was even happier that she was no longer freezing cold all of the time. Now she continues working with the clay baths and is now interested in working with others aspects of detox, including a parasite cleanse.
I previously had success in 2013 with helping another client reverse her hypothyroidism, but now this issue was much more personal. My sister’s transformation within such a short time frame combined with the eye-opening research I had gathered while working her case, was incredibly inspiring and turned out to be the fuel and motivation I needed to write this book and share this information with women all over the world looking to avoid the dreaded fate of being on thyroid medication for the rest of their life….
