I was born without a thyroid and have trouble with a lot of the side effects but mostly, depression, overweight and constipated. I stopped eating all animal sources of food last year and feel a lot better but still was having a little trouble. i talked to an herbalist...marysherbs.com... and she told me that due to not having a thyroid I should be supplementing with potassium, magnesium and calcium because we lack that process. I started using and immediately, I used the bathroom every and frequent. I am a slacker and stopped for a little minute and went back right to having that issue and she suggested supplementing with 500 of calcium and magnesium working up to 100 if needed and about 120 of potassium. So I went to my local Better Health Store and they a product that had all three and phosphorus. I will use it forever. It is by CountryLife and it is Gluten-free. Take 2 tabs a day to startoff and the bottle holds 180 so it is a 90 day supply for about $15.00. You can go to betterhealthstore.com to order too. Water needs to be mineralized and this spring water does not have it. So to compensate you can add 1 sprinkle of seltic or himalayan sea salt to 1 liter of water. You can take a free class about how to utilize your frontal cortex of your brain which makes you think clearer. very indepth info at http://bodymindinstitute.com with also classes from David Wolfe and other raw foodist. I have had so much energy since I started eating this way, but it is a process and I have slid back and forth sometimes. When you cook fruit and veggies you burn the enzymes out which we need to have regularity and when I slip back I always feel the negative difference. Cheers to staying on track. Exercise everyday but make sure you build muscle. I lost a lot of weight last year and had to be rushed to the doctor for a ekg becuse my medicine suddenly got to high. So be careful and listen to your body. Symptoms of to high meds are heart palputations, jittery, shakiness effecting speech. I ahve alo grown my own whaetgrass and if you do the research everything they say about it is true. I feel so much better when I take atleast two ounces of it a day. Since my last sons birth in 2007 I have been on levothyroxine 2.00 mcg and am now on 1.37 and lost 33 lbs. Another rwally informative website is rawmomclub.com and/or rawdiva.com. and google David wolfe but don't buy the books off the website becue they are like $6.00 on Amazon. I feel that adequite water and minerals, daily exercise including weight training, aerobics and yoga while eating as much raw as possible will give even us, optimal energy and health. Have any other questions contact me on here or at email@example.com. I am trying to help any and everyone that suffers from this condition and will love to here from everyone. I am working on my bachelors of fashion merchandising, have for children and have no thyroid. you can do it!!! We can do it!!! After I graduate in 2013 I will be studying for a bachelors in holistic health becuse I have been going to the doctors for the last 20 years of these same complaints and never got an answer... the first time I contacted a holistic doctor ...they had the answer.... and I want to give poepl that answer also.
Life is a maze,but with jehovah,you'll alwats find your way through!!!
