Quite simply, you might have an iodine deficiency.

Even MORE important patients… YOUR BODY IS NOT ABSORBING NUTRIENTS AND VITAMINS BECAUSE OF GLUTEN (IE, WHEAT!). YOU MUST ELIMINATE IT 100% ENTIRELY.  Listen closely, 100% ENTIRELY.

READ:

“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.” -Field expert

Concerned patient,

If you cut out gluten ENTIRELY you will be able to absorb ALL of the vitamins and nutrients you body needs in 1 year.  Please please please, if you listen to anything I say, listen to this.  You need do some serious research and cut out ANYTHING with wheat.  I can send you a list if you want, but the ONLY way you will correct your illnesses is to ELIMINATE GLUTEN ENTIRELY.

Checkout my Facebook, youtube, and blog for info.  TRUST ME!  Start now, don’t wait until it is too late.  It must be 100% or it will NOT work.  Your life WILL CHANGE!

Symptoms of iodine deficiency

  • Severe deficiency of the essential trace element iodine causes goitre – a swelling of the thyroid gland. Long-term deficiency causes cretinism – stunted growth, mental retardation and many other health problems. The introduction of iodised salt in the early 1900s, and the addition of iodine compounds to other foodstuffs such as flour and milk has reduced the incidence of severe iodine deficiency (goitre) in many affluent countries. However, few people get enough iodine for optimal or even good health. Goitre-producing iodine deficiency is still a problem in many parts of the world, particularly in poorer nations and places where there is little iodine in the local food
  • Fibromyalgia. This is the classic ailment presenting a variety of the symptoms listed below, and caused primarily by an excess of fluorides and other goitrogens in the body

2 things patients… you need to CUT OUT ALL GLUTEN (WHEAT AND WHEAT-CONTAINING PRODUCTS 100%) AND “GOITROGEN” FOODS.

DO NOT EAT:

1. Broccoli
2. Brussels Sprouts
3. Cabbage
4. Cauliflower
5. Kale
7. Peaches
8. Peanuts
9. Radishes
10. Soy-Based Foods
11. Spinach
12. Strawberries

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!

MMS Update – 94 Days (3 months, 2 days) – Thyroid medication conflicts!


I am still taking the MMS every day, but for the past 14 days or so I have been taking about about 5 drops versus the recommended 8 (1 drop per hour, working your way up to 3 per hour).  The reason for this: Concern.  Three things have been happening:

My thyroid scores (which have been normal since I’ve been taking Synthroid to stimulate thyroid hormone) have gone back to hypothyroid, making me wonder whether the MMS may be effecting the adsorption of the medication; two, I have been very bloated, retaining I would assume water and salt, which I believe to be from the MMS, which is primarily salt, and three, I have been super tired and sluggish – another symptom of hypothyroid.

My thyroid, with the thyroid replacement hormone, was functioning fine before I started taking MMS.  Since taking MMS, the symptoms of hypothyroidism have come back, making me miserable – ie, huge bloating (most noticeable in stomach, then face, then fingers – making me look heavier than I am), fatigue/sluggish, etc.

It’s a paradox however because the MMS seems to be working to kill off many of my other symptoms, including:

-Hot and cold flashes (Occurs periodically often while laying in bed, or perhaps that’s when I notice it most like many of the other symptoms)
-Extreme dry mouth (Cotton mouth, and it doesn’t matter how much water I drink)
-Lump in throat sensation (It will randomly feel like I have a golf ball or large-size piece of food stuck in my throat)
-Mouth sores (I get little canker sores — clear bubbles in my mouth at random times — usually a single or couple bubbles at once typically behind my front bottom lip)
-Neck/shoulder pain (I will often wake up with EXTREME stiffness in my neck/shoulder area and my neck/shoulders will just randomly burn, especially at night)
-Enlarged neck/throat (lymph) glands (Especially when I work out, even minimally, ie: lifting dumbbells for a half hour)
-Tingling in hands/feet/face (I thought maybe I had MS -Multiple Sclerosis because of the random “tingling”)
-Foul-smelling boogers (Sounds strange, but is definitely something I have noticed since very early on when I became sick).
-Continual, re-occurring, slow healing infections (I get a lot in my fingers)

Since taking MMS, the symptoms listed above have gone from occurring frequently to rarely.  I will still keep my eye open on their occurrence and frequency.

I am torn at the moment in terms of which action to take, ie: continue taking MMS and continue to getting more bloated (It’s making me look 15 pounds heavier than I am) and allow it to effect my thyroid to where I am exhausted every day, or not take it and run the risk of all my symptoms returning and my lyme bacteria forming “cysts” (right now they should be in the non-cyst form because I have been “aiming ‘bullets'” at them so-to-speak with the MMS, and I had not taken any other medication before to try and fight off the infection, so they received a straight shot of MMS, which I have continually been pumping into my body now for the past 3 months.

I do not want to stop taking it and make a mistake, but the effecting my thyroid absorption is very problematic and all of the symptoms that go along with that alone!  I almost feel like I am stuck in a catch-22 – like I either have to have hypothyroidism (which is bad – many of my symptoms alone are related to hypothyroidism by itself) or have lyme disease, which is even worse.  So basically I feel like I need to rid my lyme (most importantly) but in the meantime I am struggling with hypothyroidism because the MMS appears to be messing the absorption up!

With that being said, I feel like I cannot win… I wish there was something out there just as powerful as MMS that did not conflict with my thyroid medication… even if I knew of something though, I have already started the MMS, and I trust that it’s working so I don’t think I would want to take it.  Stuck!

Emily’s Symptoms:

Current/Unresolved Issues:

-Ear-node pain (Constant dull, aching pain behind ears – random times for intermittent hour-stretches of time – when it is really bad, it extends to the upper jaw, causing me to clench both my teeth/jaws and hands, then I get a headache, and then my upper back and neck start throbbing, knotting, and burning)
-Buzzing in ears (Occurs in 1 ear at a time and is known to occur in both ears, though it happens 75% more of the time in right ear)
-Asymmetrical tonsil (On right side of mouth – Dr. states it looks and feels the “size of a grape”)
-Joint pain in hands/fingers (Occurs in both hands, though slightly more painful on the right side.  Was x-ray for arthritis twice  – both negative).
-“Tired,” dry eyes and tear ducts daily (Eye doctor said that my tear ducts dry up every “2 seconds” instead of “13” seconds.  Additionally, my eyes have lost their “vitality,” ie: vivid/whiteness, and sometimes by the end of the night I look stoned when I am not even around smoke or anything to irritate my eyes.  This also effects my ability to ride a bicycle because of the dry air)
-Extreme fatigue (varies day-by-day and can strike out of nowhere)
-Abnormal ANA titer 3x (Negative for rheumatoid factor, ie: scloderma, lupus, arthritis, etc.)
-Hypothyroidism (NOT Hashimoto’s)
-Dizziness/increased motion sickness (Occurs every few days randomly)
-Extreme sensitivity to heat and cold (When others are warm, I am uncomfortably hot and sweaty, and when others are comfortable, I am cold)
-Unexplained hair loss (Every time I take a shower, more hair sheds than necessary)
-Dry hair (feels like straw)
-Brittle nails (they no longer grow)
-Oversensitivity to light (I now have to wear a hat with a visor all the time and sunglasses)
-Facial flushing (MRI showed inflammation in cheeks)
-Unexplained weight changes (Extreme gain and loss — fluctuates between 118 and 136 lbs and changes in a very short periods of time)

Note:  All symptoms started Fall 2007.  Most symptoms occur worse on the right lateral part of my body, but all symptoms are unilateral.  I am more inclined to notice symptoms while laying in bed at night and in the morning although they occur during the day and are noticeable, but I am trying to stay busy and function (very difficult).  I often stay home because I am so tired and ache (ear-node/jaw/back/neck/shoulder).

Recent Past (Latent?):

-Hot and cold flashes (Occurs periodically often while laying in bed, or perhaps that’s when I notice it most like many of the other symptoms)
-Extreme dry mouth (Cotton mouth, and it doesn’t matter how much water I drink)
-Lump in throat sensation (It will randomly feel like I have a golf ball or large-size piece of food stuck in my throat)
-Mouth sores (I get little canker sores — clear bubbles in my mouth at random times — usually a single or couple bubbles at once typically behind my front bottom lip)
-Headaches/Migraines (I get them a few times a year for a week straight – Note:  At a separate time when I get the nosebleeds)
-Neck/shoulder pain (I will often wake up with EXTREME stiffness in my neck/shoulder area and my neck/shoulders will just randomly burn, especially at night)
-Enlarged neck/throat (lymph) glands (Especially when I work out, even minimally, ie: lifting dumbbells for a half hour)
-Tingling in hands/feet/face (I thought maybe I had MS -Multiple Sclerosis because of the random “tingling”)
-Foul-smelling boogers (Sounds strange, but is definitely something I have noticed since very early on when I became sick).
-Continual, re-occurring, slow healing infections (I get a lot in my fingers)
-Night sweats (Mostly occurred in 2008, but should not be ruled out because they occurred frequently)
-Cold hands, feet, and nose (Occurs in fall and winter and is out-of-proportion compared to every person in the room)

-Random nose bleeds (Occur twice a year for a week-long stretch and will gush – Last time I went to the ER)
-Vision difficulties (Worsened, blurry far away vision – worse at night; developed a slight astigmatism)
-Increased anxiety
-Increased panic in crowded places
-Difficulty falling asleep and insomnia
-Increasing depression
-Vivid dreams and nightmares
-Allergies/Sensitivities (I have developed an allergy to dust and developed food sensitivity to blackberries and some soy-made products)
-Random rashes (Allergies?  I have eaten the foods before and never developed a rash – now I am getting more rashes when I eat things.  The last rash was on my left kneecap, which did not subside with Benedryl “quick strip.”  The rash remained on my leg for 3 solid days and was triangle-shaped).
-Weakness in limbs (This has occurred twice.  I was so weak I could not even get up, and I thought I might have to be admitted to the ER.  Also at this time I was sweating – DRENCHED profusely)
-Fainting (I had my blood drawn and entirely blacked out)
-Dandruff (I have never had dandruff my entire life)
-Unexplained menstrual pain and irregularity
-Unusual abdominal cramping (This has happened a couple times. I will get pain in my abdominal region when I am not on my period)

May 17th, 2011. Latest MMS update.


Latest update…

My MMS seems to be working, although I have had some symptoms such as ear/jaw pain, some minor joint (hand/fingers) pain, buzzing in right ear a few times, hot/cold flashes, etc.  This is only about 1/4 of my symptoms so apparently the MMS is working.  I am however considered about the ongoing ear node pain.  I am hoping to get another MRI, this time the ear/neck region to find out if the asymmetrical tonsil, etc. is tumor.

The MMS is making it difficult for my thyroid to absorb the medication.  My latest blood test from a few weeks ago stated I was a 3.52 (“Normal is up to 3.0 and then it’s classified “hypothyroidism, Note:  These are the new and revised standards — many medical agencies have not updated the standards, nor done the research).  At any rate, my thyroid levels are supposed to be between 1.5 and 2.5.

To say the least, because my thyroid medication is not being properly absorbed no matter how long I space out the medication, I am having to raise my dose.  I am now going to be taking 50 mcg of Synthroid instead of 37 and hope that there’s an improvement.  If not, I will continue to be extremely sluggish to where I can only do literally one activity a day.  Proper thyroid functioning is imperative.

New blood test results will be in next week.  In 3 months I will get tested for lyme disease again to officially see if the MMS has been “working.”

So yeah… to say the least, due to the lack of thyroid medication absorption, I have been insanely tired and sluggish, having the energy to only do one event a day.  It is imperative that people get their thyroid checked and look at their own scores and be sure that the thyroid’s TSH falls between 1.5-2.5, despite what one’s “doctor’s office” says.  I have been to 3 facilities now in 2 different states with outdated thyroid guidelines.

Once my energy goes back up, I will post more.

Thanks for staying tuned!
