Need Natural Cure for Hypothyriodism
This question is for Ted if he has a moment. I'm a 37 year old male and have the following symptoms:
1) Cold hands and feet, especially at nights
3) High insulin levels - prediabetic
4) Very low sex drive
5) Severe bloating and indigestion beginning a few minutes after a meal and lasting for several hours
6) Reduced appetite. cant get hungry until late morning
7) Severe sneezing allergies to pollen, especially early in the mornings.
8) not satisfying sleep - always feel I could sleep more but cant. Mind racing as soon as my eyes open
9) Constant shaking legs
I have been reading a lot of posts on earthclinic and decided to try some things. I started taking:
1) Ashwaganda for my adrenals
2) ACV for the acidity
3) Magnesium 600mgs a day
4) selenium 200micrograms per day
5) zinc picolinate 50mg per day
2) Iodine: 1 drop of lugols once a day. I tried 2 drops in one day and felt like my head was going to explode. I have noticed an immediate difference to my sleep at night (i can get more than usual) and slight decrease in allergies. I do feel more nauseas than usual. My hands and feet are definately warmer than usual and I love this. my sex drive has really picked up and so has the strength of my erections so I'm very excited that the iodine has impacted this aspect of my life after spending much money on many other herbs.
One very worrying side effect of taking the lugols is that my symptoms of high insulin have returned with a vengeance. I have severe thirst and have to urinate very frequently (every hour or 2)
My question is should I continue taking lugols? I tried kelp and wakame seaweed and that seems to have helped with reducing the high insulin but will it be just as effective as lugols?
Anythign else you can recommend to cure
I did the iodine patch test and the yellow had vanished in about 5 hours.
Your advice is very much appreciated and thank you for helping so many people with so many of their problems on here. this website empowers the human being to take control of his/her health instead of handing it over to someone who professes to know everything based on a qualification when he could very well be very wrong about his diagnosis.
