Question for Ted

Posted by Michelle on 05/09/2007

Hi Ted, I was medically discharged from the military with undifferentiated connective tissue disorder (positive ANA, low white blood cells, arthritis in finger joint): 3 of the 11 for Lupus, which I have been tested for and do not have, but I have other Autoimmue things going on. Also, I don't have the postive ANA anymore as well. I recived many vaccines upon entrance in the Army, and then given all of those same vaccines again plus some when I was deployed to Haiti (only 3 years after receiving my initial series). I also was given the Rhogam shot with 2 post pregnancies, and two major surgeries. (One D&C after a miscarriage, One C-Section with the birth of my daughter.) I now have hashimoto thyroiditis, cannot digest gluten or dairy, and have poured my heart and soul into studying alternative medicine since the medical doctors didn't have much to offer me.... Now, I have raised lymph nodes around the thryoid, goiter, and just want help. Please can you suggest what I can do? How can I get the vaccines out of my body? Do you have any advice for me? I have done colon and liver cleansing in the past, which has helped, but I still have the issues with thyroid. Here is what I am currently doing: Goat's Colostrum Clay Baths (every 6 weeks) No gluten Natural Bovine Thyroid (Although, I don't know how effective this is) Mega B-Stress (Although now I see it has Niacin as Niacinamide, which I think you said we should never take, ONLY IN THE FORM OF NICOTINIC ACID, Do you have a brand recommendation. RM-10 from Garden of Life Selenium Chromium (Not picolinate) I also rebound everyday. I used to juice everyday as well, but have gotten away from that. I also eat mostly vegan, but do consume eggs. I am open to Salmon, but have not done so as of yet. Any advice for me? Thanks so much!! Blessings

nd maybe 1 capsules a day, or twice a day for only 3-4 days out of the week would also be helpful.

Vitamin C sodium ascorbate will be helpful. One extra notes, that you need to pay attention, vitamin B complex is taken once a week or twice a week. Without getting into confusion, I prefer niacinamide vitamin B3 as part of the ingredient, any other names of B3 you risk possible confusion of names.

Chromium, at least for now should not be taken that often, and once a week or less is better. The reason is simple: you are removing heavy metals and putting them back in is not helpful

Should you want mineral balances, the safest route, I think would be just add sea salt (dead sea, and other places high in heavy minerals are o.k). The usual dose is 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in one liter of all your drinking water. This should help autoimmunity.

The second issue is alkalization, which removes heavy metals reduce inflammation and I have seen this alone can helped greatly in the improvement of autoimmunity by leaps and bounds. Usually autoimmunity requires somewhat larger does than most people of baking soda, which is often 1/2 teaspoon taken twice a day is added. You can also put in 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar also taken twice a day mixed with the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.

Miscarriage, is often due to vitamin C deficiency, high heavy metals, which effects fetal development too. The reason I know is I wouldn't be alive right now if my mother weren't eating by the baskets of oranges, as she had previous cases of miscarriage before.

This is the simplest remedy that I can think of that would help you. If this is not helpful there is always a tiny pinch of borax added, to drinking water once a week. However, I don't think you need them here, unless the fungus like condition of autoimmunity does not respond to the simple remedies.
