My thyroid story

In 2007 I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem and put on a medication called Levothyroxine, which I was told I would be on for the rest of my life. I had barely ever taken any medication at the time, I had not actually seen a doctor between 1986 and 2005, but I was in a very desperate and chronic state and had submitted myself to any treatment that my great doctor at the time, suggested I take.

Unusually for me, I didn’t check what the side effects of this drug were for 7 years. When I did (and I had a different doctor by then), I instantly stopped taking them.

I was also seen at that time by a friend who had been a top pharmacological researcher for 25+ years but who had then retrained as an Ayurvedic doctor. He suggested that the main life stresses which had built up for 20 years and then caused my complete collapse in 2005 were no longer exerting huge pressure on my adrenal glands, and that subsequently it was likely that my thyroid was no longer overcompensating for the constant state of fight or flight that my intense lifestyle had induced.

This proved to be the case, and aided by my beginning to consume the microalgae, my thyroid normalised and has been in great, unmedicated health ever since.

There are numerous causes of thyroid problems, from diet and intake of toxins from the environment or through skin products, to prolonged abnormal life stresses. A toxic relationship can be just as bad as having fluoride in your drinking water (research in the UK found a direct correlation between fluoride levels in drinking water and thyroid diseases).

Here is a very illuminating interview from Chris Wark of Chris Beat Cancer who is a proactive advocate for healing cancer and many other diseases through natural diet and lifestyle de-stressing.

He talks to Dr Izabella Wentz, a pharmacist who had suffered a long time from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis before curing herself through diet and finding the root cause, rather than allowing her doctors to attack her symptoms. Her book is a New York Times Bestseller.
