More Hair & No Thyroid Medication - Update July 2012

I have been VERY busy detoxing these last 9 months. I have reversed my hypothyroidism and have been off my Armour Thyroid medication for 30 days. This is SO exciting after 20+ years of fighting a balance with my thyroid meds. I have also re-grown a good deal of my hair after dealing with very thin hair since 2000. I have been eating a low fat, high fruit diet with leafy greens and veggies. My blood sugars have remained between 75 and 95 on a high fruit diet. I did low glycemic and fruitarian both for 3 months each, to see how my blood sugars personally responded to the claims that they both work for diabetes. For me they both work as long as my  fat consumtion is low. I have been consuming herbs instead of medications. They have accelerated the process for me. The next thing on my list to cure and rebuild - my adrenal glands that were damaged from 4 years of cortisone therapy. Happy dance!


The herb company is Nature's Botanical Pharmacy - the section is Herbal Products by Dr. Morse. The name of the two herbal tinctures I use to help bring blood flow to the head are "Circulation Upper" and "Brain and Nerve 2".


The Brain and Nerve 2 is a newer product and has to be requested via the phone number on that website.


I have been self-healing through approx 80% fruits (higher water content) ie, apples, grapes, melons, berries, stone fruits. Some bananas but not much, leafy green juices and salads, and veggies when I feel like them. I personally consume an 80% liquid diet, although that is not at all necessary. I do it because I'm still healing my pancreas and digest liquids better than solids at this point.

I've been 95-100% raw if you want to attach a number to it. I'm not into the labels, I just do the best I can, day-to-day. I rest a lot. I'm not doing an 80-10-10 even though it seems similar. I don't eat large amounts of food, because I'm not using my energy to exercise. I'm using my energy to heal.

It's all about moving stagnant lymph fluid from too many years of medications and other chemicals, starchy mucus forming foods (like dairy), and acid forming foods (like meat & grains). The lymph fluid can become like a paste and hold the toxins in the body. I''ve basically been doing a long term cleanse I suppose. I believe with all my heart anybody can heal from living this lifestyle. The herbs are not a necessity, but they are an accelerator. And one can make their own herbal mixtures. That would be fun do do someday! :-)

I want everyone to experience wellness and have a high quality of life!

Wow! A yoga teacher also says that three to four ujjayi pranayama--you make a very noisy inhalation--helps correct thyroid imbalances. Check out youtube videos of an Indian religious guru Swami Ramdev.

On youtube, type Ramdev + ujjayi.  You may have to watch three or four of his videos to get the idea, as some of them are in Hindi.

I eat ice cream every day. I sent you a message Joe. Any frozen fruit in a food processor with juice, water or nut milk or coconut milk or water. It's awesome and fat free or very low fat.

Joe I made a vegan frozen dessert you could try for your wife...  I just take frozen bananas, and maybe some frozen strawberries or mango, put them in  a blender with coconut water and coconut creme. Add a touch of honey for sweetness, and some hemp seeds on top.  Perfect and refreshing :-D

She does eat LOTS of fruit also every day. I'm concerned because she has a bowl of ice cream 4-6 days a week. I'm trying to get her to read 'the China study'.

Everyone's journey is different & personal. She does so much better than last yr. & I don't want to discourage her. She has lost 20-30 lbs too.

God Bless!!!!

Joe fruit moves lymph faster than greens, together they agree a powerhouse! Maybe she'd like some fruit, berries or melons? I mix my green leafies with fruit I smoothies and juices. :-)

Hi Wendy,

Wow!!! I'm syked about your rejuvenation!!! My wife's Dr said she has thyroid problems but we don't use any meds for it. I wish she drank more greens and stopped consuming meat & dairy but I see progress.

God Bless......................

This is wonderful - and I do agree especially on the low fat - for which I am now dealing with.  Thank for sharing.  Can you share the herbs you took.  Thanks!
