Thyroid Health Day 2

I have been working on my adrenals and watching my diet like a hawk for the past several weeks. I have felt better, but still not there...still not normal. I thought I would blog a little bit about this journey. I am hoping that the journey will lead me to feeling like a normal human again. I am scared to be too hopeful. However, I have noticed improvement with following Weston Price's research and then following that with working on my adrenal fatigue. Now, as of yesterday afternoon I am finally working on my thyroid. I am not going to post about what all I am doing or taking because I simply don't want it to be construed as medical advice. I am not a doctor. I am a patient that is fed up with modern day medicine refusing to acknowledge that something somewhere in my body is not working right simply because they are relying on unreliable blood tests instead of symptoms. I have a laundry list of symptoms. I guess the one thing that I have learned from studying Weston Price's research is that symptoms typically mean that something is not working like it should and that there is always an explanation. So a diagnosis of chronic fatigue simply means that a doctor has given up trying to find what isn't working like it should. At least that is my theory. All I know is that several generations ago things like chronic fatigue and fibro rarely existed. Something has changed. So much has, chemicals, lifestyles, etc. What are these changes doing to us? What have these changes done to me? Growing up in a world loaded with chemicals, ingesting chemicals, processed food, fast food, food lacking nutritional value...the overload and underload has wreaked havoc with my system and something is not working right anymore. I am on a mission to fix it even though modern day medicine says there is nothing to fix. I will let you know how the journey goes. In one way I am hopeful and in other ways I am scared to have much hope. I have to trust that the good Lord will lead me down a path to wellness. I have to trust that He would never wish his children to suffer so much pain physically. I have to trust that He did not design our bodies to be so weak starting at such a young age. I pray that I am right and that He will lead me on the path to healing and wellness. Blessings from the farm, Kat

There are a couple of books that I have found extremely useful to detox and balance one's system: "Alkalize or Die" by Theodore Baroody, and "Eating for Your Type" by Dr Peter De Amano...

Utilizing all forms of organic coconuts (there is a book but at present cannot recall the title - but will get back to you on this) is also an extremely healthy alternative and naturally medicinal in it's own right; even more so than with olive oil (but olive is still awesome...!)

Prior to be introduced to the "western types of diets" coronary, neurological, diabetes and other autoimmune disorders were Unknown to the Polynesian or any other cultures that utilized coconuts as a mainstay to their diets... just some food for thought...:)))

Happy Recovery...!!!

Best Regards,

J Daniel

Coconut oil and coconut period is extremely healthy. I drink a small amount of coconut milk with each meal. I agree with the primitive cultures being much healthier. In fact it is amazing to read about the health and wellness that Dr. Price found when he visited numerous such cultures. And then later, he re-visited some of them after they had been introduced to "modern" foods and he noted a decline in dental health. Blessings, Kat

The book I was referring to is: "The Coconut Oil Miracle" (Previously published as The Healing Miracle of Coconut Oil) by Bruce Fife, Jon J. Kabara

For best benefit it is suggested to consume three (3) tablespoons of coconut oil daily - IMHO Nutiva brand organic extra virgin coconut oil is the best for the bucks...

The other was actually "Eat right for Your Type" by Peter J D' Adamo The basic premise here is eating the right foods for your blood type...

BTW, many studies show that poor dental health is indicative of a whole litany of other serious bodily ailments... guess that's why one looks at a horse's mouth prior to purchasing it...:)

Have a great day...!
