To help you identify your problem, here are the latest top-selling books on the signs and treatment of a thyroid problem.
Thyroid problems occur when the gland does too much (hyperthyroid) or too little (hypothyroid). Several diseases or an iodine deficiency can cause hypothyroid. Hypothyroid in infants can stunt growth and cause mental retardation. In adults, it can cause Diabetes, Atherosclerosis, Yeast Infections, Allergies, Constipation, Depression and Hypoglycemia...and is often mistaken for these diseases. Other diseases or too much iodine can cause hyperthyroid. Hyperthyroid in children can cause the child to grow well beyond normal, resulting in serious complications.
Thyroid problems are often mistaken for other diseases. A TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test, in combination with other (T3, T4) tests can help identify the problem. Your doctor can prescribe drugs, surgery and other treatments for both hyper and hypothyroid, depending on how severe the problems are.
For Hyperthyroid, a high protein, high calorie diet may be helpful to maintain body weight.
For hypothyroid, a weight loss diet is recommended.
For both, avoid brussel sprouts, kale, rutabaga, soybeans, cabbage, cauliflower and turnips, because they may interfere with medications. You can supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following:
Organic Germanium; 300-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Fiber; 12-15 grams extra from vegetable sources or supplements.
Drinking Clean Water; 2-3 quarts daily.
We both know there are no guaranteed cures, whether in medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else. Complete healing...including mind, body and spirit...is possible, from God. If you want God's help with your health problem, go to Help From God.
