Dear Ted,

I trust in your remedies more than I trust my own doctors as they as they seem to be so confused when it comes to my thyroid condition. Between the two thyroid doctors I am seeing, one put me on T3 40 mcg and the other took me off and put me on Armour 1G (60 mg)for my hypothyroidism. Aft being switched to A, I started taking coconut oil on my own and ended up in the ER w heart palps, so dr switched me back to T3. Now, I have no appetite and am losing more weight even though blood tests say I am hypo. Today, I plan on not taking it to see if my appetite comes back. I also started taking sea kelp even though my dr was against it, saying that it might cause goiter (520 mg 4x/day every 3 days as recommended by u) & started oil pulling again this am as it seems I still have candida since I have tongue coating. By the way, the olive oil I use never turns white but does become bubbly & watery. At any rate, my doctor has told me that I have some suspicious looking nodules on thyroid & may want a biopsy. I tried the meridian machine, which indicated prob areas to be thyroid & breast (numbers are in the low 40s). So, I am concerned w both thyroid & breast cancers as possibilities. What further advice can u give as I am terrified of this disease & even more frightened of my doctors?

Dear Rhonda,

A hypothyroid may be a condition of an unrecognized zinc deficiency and magnesium deficiency. Copper is tricky and is taken after the electrolytes gets balanced especially the magnesium. Calcium will worsen the condition. The magnesium I prefer are of two kinds, the magnesium chloride, since I used this regulary and the trimagnesium citrate, as it is most soluble in water. The magnesium is taken at 100 mg dissolved in water three times a day. The loss of appetite is easily dealt with just taking some b complex to restore the appetite. Once the appetite and energy is restored, whichever comes first, B complex is taken only once or twice a week. Once a perso feels better after a week or two of supplementation, then some zinc supplements is taken but only twice a week. You simply can't zinc first when a person have hypothyroidism or it causes loss of appetite. This is why B complex is taken first to restore them. The zinc supplements I prefer is zinc gluconate or zinc acetate, at 25 mg to 50 mg but is taken only once or twice a week. Once a person feels better to a certain level and if zinc is taken too much either vomiting or loss of appetite, then the zinc is discontinued and maybe taken only once a month or twice a month at similar dose. The thyroid supplements I prefer is a more natural Amour thyroid, but not at a regular dose, a person may take it but not too much to cause a thyroid shutdown, but enough so that the energy level is sufficient. It should be noted that much of the thyroid problems, from my own experience is the fungus that infects the body, primarily causing a shutdown in thyroid function. Taking a thyroid supplements is a temporary measure but a necessary one, and is gradually pared down once the deficiencies is dealt with until the thyroid is restored to normal. Copper may be taken together, preferably with zinc, preferably copper chelate amino acid, but only after a week or two after the body acquires sufficient levels of zinc. Fungus is relatively difficult to get rid in the body which leads to autoimmunity, and the fungal toxins from mycoplasma other sorts such as black molds produces aflatoxin, which are cancer causing. The simplest of all remedy to reduce such fungus in the blood, as in candida, yeast, is the hydrogen peroxide. A mild dose is between 1/2 capful to 1 capful of H2O2 3% per liter of drinking water. All drinking water will have this. If the condition of the person feels better, a tannic acid maybe added to the drinking water. The best dose after some weeks of struggle as well as being unable to answer earthclinic in trying to cure liver cancer and breast cancer (which required about 3 days to reduce the symptons) is 1/8 teaspoon of tannic acid per 250 cc of water, plus 1/8 teaspoon of fulvic acid powder (if you can't get it, then it is not critical, to that 250 cc of water, DMSO is added at 20 drops. It is drank at two times a day, once in the morning and once afternoon, preferably 30 minutes or 1 hour before meals. This is the minimum dose, without the side effects, which is usually a constipation if taken at much larger dose. The DMSO acts as a carrier to go deep into tissues, the required tannic acid and fulvic acid necessary to deactivate the fungus, causing them to be denatured, at very low doses, it will effect only the tiny microorganisms as the virus, prions, bacteria, and mycoplasma, but has nearly no effect on large healthy cells. DMSO causes invading microorganisms which is anaerobic and forces them to become aerobic, as DMSO is a delivery for both oxygen and nutrients, thus killing them. In any case it is wise to check for thyroid function, but is is just as important to check other figures, as well, such as liver function through blood tests. Candida maybe causing the hypothyroid as they are fermentative, anaerobic and their favorite food as they don't use oxygen is the sugar, especially the glucose and fructose, two very simple sugar that fuels fungus, bacteria and viral growth. Fried food, oily foods from salad dressing and simple sugar from fruit juices are the major culprits, but also white bread (from yeast fermentation), as well as other acid forming food as in eating too much overcooked meats. Getting a hair mineral analysis may reveal other minerals overlooked that is found amongst hypothyroid, such as iodine, manganese, and chromium. The only form of iodine that has the least side effects to help with hypothyroid is the potassium iodide, perhaps once or twice a week at 1/16 of a teaspoon, about the tip of the knife dose. Kelp sometimes work and sometimes not. The reason for its varying performance may have to do with the fact that they are also high in bromine, but this also prevents excess iodine when bromine and iodine is present. The only way to know for sure whether kelp works or not is simple. Do not take a lot of kelp when starting on a kelp. Take the smallest possible dose, allow some rest period notice for improvement in condition, once it plateaus, take another dose. So a simple plan may be 100 mg of Kelp, two or three days no kelp then start another one on third or fourth day. It's still important to alkalize, as alaklaize reduces fungus in general as in candida. The simplest possible dose is just baking soda, taken after meals 30 minutes at 1/4 teaspoon per fcup of water after each meal, which means three times a day. Eating apples which contains malic acid or baking soda with apple cider vinegar, or taking malic acid 500 to 1000 mg, and added with baking soda so it won't upset the stomach from excess acidity may also relieve some brain fog associated with both candida and hypothyroid. It should be noted that some people with fungus infection has high urinary tartaric acid, which blocks normal citric acid cycle in mitochrondria, by blocking malic acid production. So when we take this it bypasses this and energy level is restored. Killing off the fungus by alkalization, but avoiding sugar and oily foods is the basic to getting out of the woods. This is just a primer on getting out of hypothyroid. Vitamin C maybe helpful also, but always start with low dose of 500 mg per day and if it is good, then the dose can be increased slowly until the body adapt itself.

what if you have hypothyroidism but your hair analysis says your tissues have magnesium toxicity. Should you avoid the mg? Or is the hair analysis off?
