BREAKTHROUGH UPDATE AND RESEARCH CONTINUED!


Theory/Hypothesis:  Could gluten (found in wheat) have coated my intestinal walls making it hard to absorb nutrients and/or BROCCOLI (A goitrogen) was BLOCKING iodine from getting into my body.

Provided that I have an iodine deficiency, and the iodine deficiency causing temporary hypothyroidism?

Since I have eliminated gluten, as well as broccoli (both of these products prevent iodine from being absorbed), iodine seems like it has been able to make it into my system, so my test results are indicating hyperthyroid because I am “over-medicated.”

My theory/hunch has been that if I continue to 1. (chronological) be gluten-free and 2. avoid goitrogenic foods) the iodine will absorb in my body to where I eventually will no longer need thyroid replacement hormone.

Brain teaser:  Was the prevention of iodine absorption caused by GLUTEN or excess ingestion of GOITROGENS?

To further research: CAUSES OF IODINE DEFICIENCY:  GLUTEN AND/OR GOITROGENS?

UPDATE:  GLUTEN IS SAID TO BE A GOITROGEN!  I AM DEAD ON IN MY RESEARCH!

SO, could it be that the COMBINATION of GLUTEN + GOITROGEN has caused my AUTO-IMMUNE CONDITIONS!

GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH!

Continued thoughts:  My body now, and more each day, “should,” in theory, be able to obtain, or rather absorb, more and more nutrients now that it LACKED due to gluten.  Experts say:

“Even worse, the immune response to gluten can last up to 6 months each time you eat it. This explains why it is critical to eliminate gluten completely from your diet if you have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lyme disease, celiac, and any other auto-immune disease.  There’s no “80/20″ rule when it comes to gluten. Being “mostly” gluten-free isn’t going to cut it. If you’re gluten intolerant, you have to be 100% gluten-free to prevent immune destruction of your thyroid.”

VERY IMPORTANT, FOLKS!

BREAKTHROUGH – Iodine-deficiency vs. hypothyroidism?


BREAKTHROUGH!  A light-bulb has just gone off!  Am I being medicated for “hypothyroidism” when I may only have an iodine deficiency? How do you differentiate/rule out the two? ie, iodine deficiency versus hypothyroidism? I do know that my thyroid results came back hypothyroid, however, I came back NEGATIVE for Hashimoto’s antibodies, which is the primary CAUSE of hypothyroidism. Typically hypothyroidism is GENETIC, and nobody in my family to my knowledge has it, so how do I and the doctors know I don’t just have an Iodine deficiency? Why didn’t they test me for an iodine deficiency before putting me on medication? Now I am on medication and don’t know if I actually have an iodine deficiency!

I might have an  Iodine-deficiency versus classic hypothyroidism!

Plan:  Reduce my Synthyroid slowly and see if my thyroid levels are perfect the lower I go.  Note:  I was eating so much broccoli before that it was blocking absorption of my medication and iodine.  **If you are not familiar with “goitrogens,” please EDUCATE yourselves on them immediately!  ***IF you have a “thyroid” disorder you MUST avoid goitrogens because they will suppress the function of the thyroid gland by interfering with iodione uptake.  Now that I have stopped ALL goitrogens my iodine levels are improving.

Simply put, if you have been diganosed with a thyroid issue, it is PERTINENT that you figure out whether or not you have an IODIONE DEFICIENCY!  Do NOT just let your doctors put you on medication without finding out if you have a DEFICIENCY OF ANYTHING!  THEY MAKE MONEY OFF THE MEDICATIONS THEY PRESCRIBE YOU!  THEY’RE CALLED “KICKBACKS!”

PS-  “FIBROMYALGIA” SUFFERS *AND* CHRONIC FATIGUE SUFFERS OFTEN HAVE IODIONE DEFICIENCIES – PLEASE RESEARCH “IODIONE DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS!”

BREAKTHROUGH, SHA-BANG!
