Thyroid Help And Normal Blood Test

By Dr. Inge Wetzel

Your thyroid gland secretes a number of thyroid hormones that regulate, among other things, your metabolism. This is why a condition known as hyperthyroidism, is typified by a fast heartbeat, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, excess sweating, frequent bowel movements, and intolerance to heat. Things are accelerated.

On the other side there is hypothyroidism, with symptoms of fatigue, gradual weight gain, constipation, dry skin, depression, difficulty concentrating, hair loss, low blood pressure, cold extremities and being cold natured, difficulty swallowing pills, low sexdrive, menstrual problems, brittle fingernails, ringing in the ears, osteoporosis, high cholesterol or tryglycerides. The low blood pressure can eventually lead to high blood pressure, due to weight gain and stress.

The thyroid usually also affects the heart, pancreas and urinary system.

SO YOU HAD A BLOOD TEST!!!

In my practice I see that about 80% or more of the people who come into my office have thyroid problems. The ratios for your blood test are taken from the average Americans, so usually you will fall in the “normal” range.

Most physicians ignore the symptoms, because the worship the laboratory tests. People who do take drugs like synthroid still only get the T4 hormone and still suffer from weight gain and heart problems etc. Ask your physician to prescribe natural thyroid (which needs to be taken with amino acids ) and contains all the natural thyroid hormones. (Journal of the American Medical Assn. Oct. 1989). We do not suggest that people stay on these glandulars for more than two months at a time. If your physician does not agree, contact us.

In the meantime, support your thyroid with KC-X, TS-II, and magnesium along with SKL plus CA ATC (the best absorbable calcium comb.) to avoid osteoporosis. You will need this even if you take prescription drugs, because the drugs do not nurture the thyroid, and without iodine you cannot metabolize calcium.

NATURAL CARPET CLEANER

CARPET CLEANER:

1 cup Baking Soda
15-20 drops of essential oils of your choice

Mix well and place in a glass covered container (quart jar works well) overnight so that the oil can be absorbed.
Sprinkle over your carpet the next day, and then vacuum the powder up.

Citrus oils in the living area is nice, as is Lavender with Sweet Marjoram for the bedrooms.

ALL PURPOSE GREEN HOUSEHOLD CLEANER:

ALL PURPOSE HOUSEHOLD CLEANER:
In a 16 oz spray bottle, mix together in this order:
2 TB White Vinegar (don’t mix directly with soap or it will clump)
1 tsp Borax
Add:
¼ cup Hot Distilled water (We use purified or distilled because minerals in water will inhibit cleaning and might clog the sprayer over time.)
Shake vigorously until borax is dissolved or it will clog the sprayer.
Add:
¼ cup Sunshine Concentrate
10 – 15 drops of essential oils of your choice (Lavender + Lemon, Bergamot, Red Mandarin, Pink Grapefruit, Tea Tree etc.)
Add Distilled water to fill the bottle.
Shake roll to blend.
Use as you would any other all-purpose household cleaner.

The following essential oils are excellent cleansers for work areas, cupboards, bathroom fixtures, sinks, tiles, woodwork, carpets and more. They clean, kill bacteria and freshen, deodorize and disinfect the air.

Mix into 16 oz of Natures Fresh:
2 drops Rosemary
4 drops Lemon
3 drops Eucalyptus
4 drops Lavender
Shake well and put into a spray bottle. Shake before each use.

SURPRISE…. I bet you didn’t know this about ulcers……

ULCERS

peptic ulcerSymptoms:
• Discomfort within one hour of eating or during the night; relieved by food, antacids or vomiting.
• Abdominal tenderness
• Ulcer crater visible on x-ray
• Positive test for blood in the stool
• A cough that doesn’t respond to cough remedies

With acid reflux medication consumption at an all time high, people do not realize the risk factors associated with this condition. Many people with a peptic ulcer (stomach) have no symptoms for quite some time. Other people experience a feel of gnawing, aching, burning, cramp-like discomfort or “heart-burn”. An ulcer is caused by tissue damage, which can be in the esophagus, stomach or intestines. The number one cause of an ulcer is a cancer-causing bacteria, called “helicobacter pylori”. An ulcer is not caused by too much acid in the stomach, but rather by too little acid. Proteins stay in the stomach undigested and start to ferment, creating a host environment for bacteria. Antacids just further contribute to this problem. Research shows that people who take antacids are more prone to stomach cancer, osteoporosis and other problems.

Stress is probably the major underlying issue. Stress causes the stomach to become tense and create a “hiatal hernia”, which causes food to get caught at the entrance of the stomach.

SURPRISE!!! Next major cause is CONSTIPATION. I have seen numerous cases where individuals had stomach problems. After going to the doctor they found out their fecal matter was backed up into their stomach. You need to evacuate 18” each day, not once a week. Your bowels should move within one hour of each meal. Three trucks go into a tunnel, three trucks (should) come out.

Fixing the problem: Make sure you do a total body cleanse by taking “Clean Start” along with Food Enzymes or Proactazyme to break down that undigested food. You may need to stay on that for a while. CLT-X/Spleen Activator/Intestinal Soothe and Build and Aloe Vera Juice help to heal the ulcerated sites. Nature’s Sunshine aloe carries the seal of approval from the Australian Aloe Counsel on the label. It has the right active ingredients to do the job! For safety you might consider taking “Gastro Health” and /or Colostrum Plus to eliminate that cancer causing bacteria. If ulceration is in the esophagus, consider drink “slippery elm” tea.

A healthy digestive system is key to a healthy body!

Aromatherapy: Take 3-4 drops each of Clove, Oregano and Peppermint Oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil and apply to the problem area.
Rub Frankincense Oil and Myrrh Oil on center of feet, nightly
Additional Help:
Drink 1-2 drops of Peppermint Oil in 8 oz of water once a day
Drink 2-3 drops of Lemon Oil in 8 oz of water 2-3 times a day

THIS IS WHY PEOPLE GET SICK!

This is why people get sick………

The human body lives on energy. A healthy body has a frequency of 62 – 68Hhz.
A healthy body is 62 – 72 Hz. When the frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. Tainio and colleagues determined that when a person’s frequency drops below the optimum healthy range, the immune system is compromised. Findings supported by this research indicate that:

• Human cells can start to change (mutate) when their frequency drops below 62MHz.
• 58 MHz is the frequency of your body when you have a cold or the flu.
• When candida is present within your body, you vibrate at a frequency of 55MHz.
• 52 MHz is the frequency of a body with Epstein-Barr virus present.
• 42 MHz is the frequency of a body wherein cancer can appear.
• When the death process begins – the frequency has been measured at 20 MHz.
• Processed/Canned Food 0 HZ…(the majority of food we eat)

Essential oils start at 52 Hz and go as high as 320 Hz, which is the frequency of Rose Bulgaria oil. Clinical research shows that therapeutic grade essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live.
Low frequencies make physical changes in the body. Middle frequencies make emotional changes in the body. High frequencies make spiritual changes in the body. Spiritual frequencies range from 92 to 360 Hz.
How Do We Contract Disease?
According to a report (Epidemiology, May 2001; 11:345-349) psychological stress – particularly the chronic type that may accompany a personality with a negative outlook – is a risk factor for contracting colds/disease. An optimistic outlook and outgoing personality seemed to protect individuals, investigators found. When you listen to negative people, it takes down your frequencies. You will feel drained after you talk to people like that. Immediately use oil of Frankincense.
Individuals with a negative outlook were at greatest risk of developing illnesses – regardless of their intake of vitamin C and zinc or their smoking and drinking habits. The next highest-risk individuals were those who believed that they were under stress. These people were nearly three times as likely to become ill.

What Can We Do to Avoid Illnesses?
While orthodox medicine does not have the answer for colds and ‘flu, nature does – and it comes in the form of pure organic unadulterated Therapeutic Essential Oils. Why? Because they are made up of very high frequency molecules (ranging from 52MHz to 320MHz) and contain nature’s wisdom and power to raise the body’s frequency and to assist our immune system to fight viral invasions. For greater clarity, Therapeutic Essential Oils are not the same as everyday aromatherapy oils, which are produced for fragrant and other purposes.

Roman Chamomile 105 MHz

Frankincense 147 MHz

Helichrysum 181 MHz

Lavender 118 MHz

Myrrh 108 MHz

Peppermint 78 MHz

Rose 320 MHz
Sandalwood 96 MHz

 

The effect on Green Tea on memory/brain function

Improvement in Brain Function Seen with Green Tea
Drinking green tea may affect parts of the brain linked to working memory, says the first study ever to use functional neuroimaging methods to test the effects of green tea on the brain.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed that tea was associated with increased activation in the prefrontal cortex, a section of the human brain linked to working memory.
The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, adds to the long list of potential health benefits of green tea and its extracts, including reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s, improving cardiovascular and oral health, as well as aiding in weight management.
Green tea contains between 30% and 40% of water-extractable polyphenols, while black tea (green tea that has been oxidized by fermentation) contains between 3% and 10%. Oolong tea is semi-fermented tea and is somewhere between green and black tea. The four primary polyphenols found in fresh tea leaves are epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and epicatechin.
While previous studies have reported potential benefits for green tea on memory, the new study, led by Professor Stefan Borgwardt from the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland, is said to be the first to use functional magnetic resonance imaging to observe changes in the brain following the consumption of green tea extracts.
The researchers recruited 12 healthy volunteers and asked them to perform a working memory task after consuming 250 ml or 500 ml of a whey-based soft drink with or without green tea Extract in a double-blind, controlled repeated measures within-subject trial.
While analysis of the whole brain revealed no significant changes, further analysis showed that consumption of the green tea extract was associated with increased activation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, report Prof. Borgwardt and his co-workers.
In addition, the effects were linked to the doses consumed, with higher doses producing greater activation.
“This is the first neuroimaging study implicating that functional neuroimaging methods provide a means of examining how green tea extract acts on the brain and that green tea extract enhances the engagement of brain regions that mediate working memory processing,” they concluded.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROSTATE CANCER AND VITAMIN E

Most of the prominent studies that have come out in condemnation of vitamin E over the years have failed to explain the type of vitamin E used. An extremely thorough analysis conducted, however, reveals why the synthetic alpha tocopherol form of vitamin E used in these studies actually does increase cancer risk, as well as why getting the full spectrum of natural vitamin E, on the other hand, is vital for preventing cancer and maintaining vibrant health.

The most recent Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT), which involves more than 35,000 men from the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, is a perfect example of deliberate, deceptive pseudoscience. This study declared that vitamin E is dangerous and that it contributes to causing prostate cancer, which is technically true — but the reason why it is true, in context, is never properly explained.

The type of vitamin E used in the study was a synthetic version of just one form of vitamin E, alpha tocopherol. There are, in fact, four naturally occurring vitamin E tocopherols, and four naturally occurring vitamin E tocotrienols, none of which was used in the study — instead, researchers used just one variety, and an imitation one at that.                        

Synthetic vitamins, of course, have been shown to behave much differently than natural vitamins when consumed. Natural vitamins derived from whole foods work in tandem with other nutrients to provide benefits, while synthetic vitamins are isolated chemicals created in a chemistry lab. These synthetic vitamins end up being largely rejected by the body, and take with them a host of leeched minerals and other nutrients on their way out.

In its analysis, the study explains the difference between synthetic and natural forms of vitamin E, as well as why major studies about vitamin E are misleading millions. The report also explains how synthetic alpha tocopherols, when taken alone like they were in the SELECT study, actually deplete the body of necessary gamma tocopherols, which is the real reason for the increase in prostate cancer.

This and other important information is missing from the SELECT study, which happens to have been supported and funded by every major cancer center in the country, as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Their goal, of course, is to malign vitamin E so that people will stop taking it, while conveniently omitting the fact that natural vitamin E in all of its forms can together provide tremendous disease-preventing benefits.

Mammograms increase Breast Cancer risk

Here’s some food for thought: Dr. Irwin Bross was director of biostatistics at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, New York. In the 1970s, Dr. Bross headed a project that studied the alarming increase in rates of leukemia. It was called the Tri-State Leukemia Study. His sample used tumor registries from 16 million people from New York, Maryland, and Minnesota. After checking factors as diverse as health history, occupational history, residential history, family background, cause of death for parents and grandparents, exposure to farm animals, pet ownership, whether or not the pets had ever been sick, Dr. Bross came to the conclusion that the main cause of the rising rates of leukemia was medical radiation in the form of diagnostic medical X-rays (Leslie Freeman, ed., Nuclear Witnesses: Insiders Speak Out, New York: Norton, 1982, p. 27).Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley, was wondering the same thing in the early 1990s. His research led him to write a 400-page book in which he estimates that “three-quarters of the current annual incidence of breast cancer in the United States is being caused by earlier ionizing radiation, primarily from medical sources.” Astonishingly, this isn’t even news. “[M]edical science,” Gofman continues, “has known for 20 years that ionizing radiation is a prominent and proven cause of breast-cancer” (John Gofman, Preventing Breast Cancer, San Francisco: Committee for Nuclear Responsibility, 1995, p. 303).
Note the size of the study. It was no small sampling. Note the words “prominent and proven.” Not surprisingly, Dr. Bross lost his funding from the National Cancer Institute when his study was published in the respected American Journal of Public Health. This despite the fact the Dr. Bross is an eminent researcher who has held prestigious positions at major medical centers including Roswell Park and John Hopkins.
From Reclaiming our Health by John Robbins, p. 233-234(which also cites the above study): In the early 1960’s, working for the Atomic Energy Commission, John Gofman established the Biomedical Research Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, for the purpose of evaluating the health effects of all types of nuclear activities. There, he came to the distressing conclusion that human exposure to ionizing radiation was far more serious than had been previously recognized. Dr. Gofman’s work led to his 1995 book Preventing Breast Cancer, in which he came to a stunning conclusion: “Our estimate is that about three quarters of the current annual incidence of breast cancer in the United States is being caused by earlier ionizing radiation, primarily from medical sources.” John Gofman does not underestimate the role played in cancer causation played by pesticides, hormone pills, fatty diets, and other environmental stressors. He states: “There is no inherent conflict or competition between carcinogens,” because they multiply each other’s carcinogenic effects. But he finds the medical use of radiation to be so crucial that it bears repeating: “An estimated 75 per cent of recent and current breat cancer cases would not have occurred as they did, in the absence of earlier medical[and other] irradiation.” Although ionizing radiation, the type delivered by X-rays and radiotherapy, is one of the few environmental contaminants known unequivocally to cause many forms of cancer, it is routinely recommended for many cancer patients. This, despite the fact that,with few exceptions, there is no proven benefit to survival.
“Scientists agree that there is no safe dose of radiation. Cellular DNA in the breast is more easily damaged by very small doses of radiation than thyroid tissue or bone marrow; in fact, breast cells are second only to fetal tissues in sensitivity to radiation. And the younger the breast cells, the more easily their DNA is damaged by radiation. As an added risk, one percent of American women carry a hard-to-detect oncogene which is triggered by radiation; a single mammogram increases their risk of breast cancer by a factor of 4-6 times. “The usual dose of radiation during a mammographic x-ray is from 0.25 to1 rad with the very best equipment; that’s 1-4 rads per screening mammogram (two views each of two breasts). And, according to Samuel Epstein, M.D., of the University of Chicago’s School of Public Health, the dose can be ten times more than that . Sister Rosalie Bertell-one of the world’s most respected authorities on the dangers of radiation-says one rad increases breast cancer risk one percent and is the equivalent of one year’s natural aging. “If a woman has yearly mammograms from age 55 to age 75, she will receive a minimum of 20 rads of radiation. For comparison, women who survived the atomic bomb blasts in Hiroshima or Nagasaki absorbed 35 rads. Though one large dose of radiation can be more harmful than many small doses, it is important to remember that damage from radiation is cumulative.”

In other words, it appears that the diagnostic X-rays being used to detect possible breast cancer are themselves a prime cause of breast cancer. And then they turn around and recommend even higher doses of radiation to treat the cancer. Insane!!! I’d recommend reading Reclaiming Our Health by John Robbins. He goes into the medical madness of the AMA and big drug companies but he also covers the alternative medical treatments of cancer very well…treatments that have a much higher rate of success than, say, chemeotherapy and radiation, which fail about 97% of the time and subject the patient to “medievel torture” as one doctor called it. Dr. Glenn Warner is a board certified oncologist and one of the most highly qualified cancer specialist in the Seattle area. He uses alternative treatments on his cancer patients with great success. He has over 1000 surviving cancer patients. On the treatment of cancer in this country he said:”We have a multi-billion dollar industry that is killing people, right and left, just for financial gain. Their idea of research is to see whether two doses of this poison is better than three doses of that poison.” The Washington State Medical Board came after him and revoked his license without any proof of incompetence, misconduct or malpractice and without a single complaint from any of his patients. In fact, his patients raised over $300,000 for his legal battle to get his license back. What does that tell you about the priorities of our medical system and authorities?

1200 points if you agree to get the flu

The good news is Walgreens is giving you 1200 points to come in and get the flu shot, the not so good news is that they are actually giving you the flu.
We just had another phone-call from someone who was hospitalized with the flu due to dehydration.
Many times people don’t know what to do. The key is to have the right products on hand when you get the first clue. You may have a headache, feel run down and tired, muscle aches, fever, chills, dry cough, sore throat, runny nose or in severe cases even chest discomfort.
For prevention we always take Seasonal Defense, Silver Shield or Elderberry Defense. Elderberry Immune is also available in soft chews for kids.Make sure to have things on hand. Wood Betony is a great herb to add to any program. We had someone come down with the flu on Saturday. We gave him VS-C (Chinese virus formula) and Wood Betony. Five capsules of each three times that day. The next day all the symptoms were gone and he just needed to hydrate and get some rest. Wood Betony is like a jet engine. It drives the herbs rapidly to where they need to go and greatly accelerates any recovery program.
We always keep Solstic Revive in the cupboard. Not only does it taste great, but it is very high in essential nutrients and electrolytes and your little ones will love it as well. Dehydration is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to you when you get the flu.
