Great thread, lots of information, thank you.
I recently stopped taking levothyroxine for thyroid (began detoxing from it last fall), as was shutting down adrenals (I've read this can happen & it
was for me, I had 0 energy, my adrenal glands were swolen & painful. knew if I didn't quit taking it was going to kill me, & medical community would
have put me on steroids, & more meds.. ). I wonder if it is because (I think this is right) levothyroxine affects t4 & not t3? Interesting in re
melatonin & t4 & t3. I asked for armor thyroid but that was not an option per my doc (though I think I have a good doc who believes in holistic &
doesn't push the meds). I think too that medication (prescribed) usually works through the stomach, which then causes unnatural metabolic synthesis,
toxicity over time & a person's own body unable to absorb other nutrients or build to toxic.
I personally believe that most medication is something people can derive from natural sources (food, herbs, etc) & that the body IS capable of healing
itself with exercise, rest & stimulation of the brain (ie books, internet).
I saw a Dr. Oz show on raspberry keytones, miracle cure almost as to weight loss. I'm not struggling with that issue at the moment however,
raspberries are known for ellagic acid content which also works to prevent/cure cancers (skin cancers is what comes to mind however probably more than
I switched to spring water for drinking a yr ago, away from flouridated water, been taking melatonin, 5-10 mg every 2 or 3 days (just because I am not
in habit of daily routine, I have so many vits I have to alternate to have time to take them all .. lol). Multiple vitamins without minerals is my
staple, I take fish oil, flax oil (flax is estrogenic & I am female, if I were male I would not be taking that one regularly). Also calcium,
magnesium, d3, potassium is another that is hard to get enough of without effort). not dependepent upon any except mult vits & these mentioned
"Remembering," interesting your story & thanks for sharing..
I sleep well most nights, making sure to get plenty of exercise including cardio at least 3-5 days a week. I think that is huge as to blood flow &
keeping body free from toxins. I notice too, that when I get cardio the last few yrs, with all this amping of energy in the world my brain is lit up,
neurons firing (creative/productive thinking).
I appreciate the thread & will reread to absorb all that you shared. As to grains, what do you recommend? I don't eat much bread anymore, try to eat
oatmeal when eating grains. Have heard quinoa is a complete protein (grain).
Back to topic (melatonin) I think darkened room at night is really important from what I've heard too.
Larry Wilson, MD has a great site full of information that is related to your topic (healing & of the brain/body).
I'm also a fan of Dr. Richard & Cindy Becker, Dr. Becker is a D.O., has a great program local, "Cornerstone," tv station daily. They are into natural
methods of healing, health.
