ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS POISON THE THYROID GLAND
"The number one gland to be poisoned (by toxins, or environmental endocrine disruptors) is the thyroid, which controls energy, cholesterol, depression, heart disease, weight, and more. As you learned in 2014 TW, when the thyroid gland is overtly under-functioning, practice guidelines encourage doctors to prescribe Synthroid. But this has many problems. First of all it's not the active T3 thyroid hormone, but T4. This has to be converted to T3 in order to work in the body. The problem is that this requires selenium and they're not trained to check for RBC selenium deficiency... There is another reason why these thyroid glands, which have become targets of environmental pollutants, are stalled for healing. That's because most glands are deficient in iodine…There are many reasons for iodine deficiency, starting with factory smokestack, incinerator, and transportation exhaust producing heavy metals, which displace iodine from the soil, resulting in less uptake in plants we use for food…. So you're first line of defense? Besides avoidance and modification of lifestyle as much as you are able at this point, you need to restore the iodine that is missing. In fact, iodine deficiency is another hidden epidemic that medicine ignores. The best (nonRx) form is Lugols (J Crow) 2% solution in glass dropper bottles. Since Iodoral is indefinitely backordered, five drops of Lugol's is equal to one Iodoral tablet."

YOU SHOULD NOT BE TAKING THREE PRESCRIPTIONS
"Every prescription drug carries you into seemingly unrelated diseases, through the side effects of poisoning your body's pathways, which is the only way medications work to temporarily reduce symptoms. As for the low salt diet, remember the Gamma E Gems and Tocotrienols are crucial for repairing the salt sensitivity, as well as Vitamin D3 10,000 IU."

TRY THE ELIMINATION DIET TO IDENTIFY YOUR FOOD ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES
"Food allergies can cause any symptom in any organ. Yet by simply doing a trial elimination of certain foods, if you solve your medical problem, you will rescue your body from the barrage of prescription drugs that 1) inevitably lower nutrient levels, 2) impair detoxification capability, 3) as well as promote new symptoms. In fact, as you see from the sample references, as with any disease it's important to not only find the cause, but to keep up your Detox Cocktail (ready made, or your own with Recancostat, Vitamin C Powder, R-Lipoic acid). For clearly antioxidant protection goes hand-inhand with thwarting hidden addictions and allergies."

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS RESCUE THE HEART
"As an example of just one crucial nutrient, research proves that the right amounts of DHA can lower blood pressure, and resting heart rate and improve heart rate variability, even in populations exposed to inordinately high levels of mercury. The problem is many cannot convert flax oil or EPA from fish because they lack zinc (in the enzyme delta-6-desaturase). And if they even get that far to convert EPA to DHA, then they cannot put the DHA into the cellular membranes and mitochondria and nerve membranes where they belong. Why? Because the ubiquitously unavoidable phthalates or plasticizers (the #1 pollutant in the human body) poison 1) the conversion to DHA, as well as 2) acetyl-L-carnitine that enables you to then move that DHA into the cell membranes where it belongs. The right amount of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA as commonly found in Cod Liver Oil) lower the rates of heart disease, lower the rate of sudden cardiac death, lower blood pressure, lower heart rate variability diabetes, and even lower resting heart rate to a safer level."
