Thyroid Health & Hyperthyroidsim

HYPERTHYROIDISM

Overactive thyroid. Too much thyroid hormone is produced, or auto immune condition causes inflammation of thyroid.

  1. Symptoms
Fatigue Hyperactivity Nervousness Tremors
Goiter Hypertension Palpitations Weakness
Heat Intolerance Menstrual Bulging Eye(s) Weight Loss
High basal temp Disturbance Sweating

 

  1. POSSIBLE CAUSES
  • Long term stress, heavy metal toxicity, virus
  • Graves’ disease: – autoimmune disease – enlarged thyroid and production of thyroid antibodies.
  • Hashimoto’s disease: – Autoimmune disorder whereby the body produces a specialized white blood cell which attacks the thyroid gland.
  1. TREATMENT

Some suggested treatments are as follows: Treatment of hyperthyroidism can be difficult but persistence pays off.

 I. Dietary Changes

  • Reduce or eliminate gluten, increase brassicas such as broccoli, non GMO soy.
  • Reduce or eliminate Aspartame. Aspartame is metabolized into formaldehyde.
  • The toxicity in the liver and other organs may exacerbate autoimmune illnesses

 

II. Natural Supplements – can work with persistence and dedication to balance the thyroid, the first 3 are definite:

  • IF-C for Inflammation, heat rising and immune balancing.
  • Adrenal Support
  • Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic

Details of these supplements can be found here, or by contacting  Lorene Benoit, MHH, BEd.

Other herbs that are specific for hyperthyroidism are:

  • Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm): helps normalize an overactive thyroid. It reduces TSH levels by attaching to and inhibiting receptor sites. Contains flavonoids, phenolic acids and other useful compounds that regulate the thyroid. Blocks the activity of antibodies that stimulate the thyroid gland and cause Graves’ disease, which is a common form of hyperthyroidism.
  • Leonurus cardiaca (Motherwort): acts as a natural beta-blocker and helps control tachycardia (high heart rate) and palpitations. It has some anti-thyroid activity, making it beneficial for hyperthyroid conditions.

Benoit & Associates Health Education makes a calming liquid herbal preparation of Lemon Balm and Blue Vervain which has proved successful

  • Lycopus virginica (Bugleweed): can help manage mild hyperthyroidism. This particular herb reduces the amount of hormone that is produced by the thyroid. Studies have found that it helps decrease TSH levels and impairs thyroid hormone synthesis.Moreover, it helps lower T4 levels and blocks the conversion of T4 to T3.

Other formulas, combinations or single herbs to choose from:

  • HS-C, Magnesium Complex, STR-C or STR-J, Master Gland , TSII
  • Verbena Hastata (Blue Vervain): calming to the nervous system
  • Avoid supplements with iodine
  • PABA (Vitamin B family), B12, B6 ( will be provided in above herbal formulas)
  • Selenium

 

III. Medication – last resort – may end up hypothyroid & on drugs for life

  • Hydrocortisone
  • Beta blockers
  • Anti-thyroid medications – sometimes will work if doctor is skilled – should only need 6 month treatment if it works
  • Radioactive iodine – kills the thyroid gland, then person will usually be on thyroid prescitptions for life

Dr. David Brownstein – Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It

Q&A: Paw Paw and Contra-Indicated Medications and Supplements

Question:

Can you take the paw paw if you are taking thyroid medicine?  Pat L.

Answer:

I do not focus on a lot of contraindications for the Paw Paw program. And, to be clear, I refer to the only to the Asimina triloba species of Paw Paw, as this is the plant with the research and results.  There are some websites which list herbs one must not take with Paw Paw. These websites do not return emails or calls requesting research or even  explanations for their statements. If they do not or cannot back up their statements with research, I don’t pay much attention.

According to Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, the world’s expert on Paw Paw, Asimina triloba, the only proven antagonists are those that increase ATP production, such as CoQ10. This is because reduction of ATP to rapidly growing cells such as cancer,  is one of the 4 primary mechanisms by which Paw Paw is effective.  We recommend to not take CoQ10 at the same time as Paw Paw, as it increases ATP production, therefore is counter-productive. After studying with  Dr.  McLaughlin personally, I trust his research and have had results!

As mentioned in my book,  The Paw Paw Program, thyroid “stimulators” are not recommended when following a program using Paw Paw. This may be based on statements similar to one by Dr. Duarte, October, 2008: “You shouldn’t take thyroid stimulators as well, things like 7-Keto or DHEA. These tend to stimulate thyroxin production.”

Understanding the mechanism of action of Paw Paw, we do not want to intentionally stimulate the thyroid when on the Paw Paw program.

HOWEVER, if someone is taking synthroid,  natural porcine thyroid prescription, or a herbal supplement for hypothyroidism, they need to stay on this, to help maintain  normal thyroid function critical for overall health, so one cannot just stop. If the thyroid is removed or destroyed by radioactive treatments, some form of thyroid supplementation is essential for life. This is different than taking high doses of thyroid stimulating herbs, when not needed.

Even if one is taking these thyroid medications or herbs, the benefits from the Paw Paw program still outweigh other options, such as toxic chemotherapy.

Most other supplements are fine, but please be sure to do FIRST the basic 4 as listed in the program in Benoit’s book, rather than too many others that may not enhance the overall effect. Once one is comfortable with the basic 4 components of the program, Paw Paw, Minerals, Omegas and Enzymes, then other herbs may be added to increase overall immunity or to address specific concerns and to ensure optimal functioning of all body systems. Some of those most recommended are in a past article Paw Paw Program Upgrade. Two of these include, Essiac Tea Concentrate and Pau D’Arco. Remember, cancer is not just a lump or tumor, it is a reflection of the overall health of the entire body functioning as a unit, with optimization of the immune system.

Q & A – Hyperthyroid

Question:

I have quick question about health: I am pretty sure my 1.5 years old daughter has a hyperthyroid. With the researching I’ve been doing online she matches almost everything they talk about… I haven’t taken her to the Doctor about it…. I’m wanting to see if I can’t help it a natural way first. Is there a Nature Sunshine product that you’d recommend for this? Or have you heard of a child this young having hyperthyroidism before?         Thanks Lorene!!!!

Answer:

Unfortunately thyroid problems are on the increase across North America, especially since Fukishima in March, 2011. A recent study released in US states a 28% increase in infant hypothyroidism. Many other reports indicate up to 46% increase in thyroid cancers since Fukishima.

So, yes, infants can have thyroid problems. As for NSP Blue Vervain is excellent for hyperthyroidism and is available through NSP United States. When you come to Canada this summer I also make some products for hyperthyroid, also in liquid form.  Calming is essential so she is not overstimulated. Licorice is a great liquid that will nourish her adrenals and is very calming.

Please let me know if you need some help to get these.

Also, general health, especially concerning diet, as I discuss in my book, The Paw Paw Program  is important, not just for cancer.

 

Please look for upcoming article on Hyperthyroid late summer, 2016.

 

Q & A: Thyroid Cancer and Paw Paw Program

Questions:

 
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and am having surgery in September, 2012.
I will be getting my whole thyroid removed. The doctor told me I will be on synthroid for the rest of my life. I would like to know what I have to take for herbal meds to make me feel normal and healthy again. I am 49 year old weight is 159 lbs.  I believe I am a healthy person as my medical report came back as very good. Except for the cancer. I will be going for radiation as well in about 6 weeks time. Please help me get my mental health, physical health and spiritial health back on track. I have read the book (Paw Paw, the Christopher Columbus Approach to Cancer) which I found very interesting and informative. Thank You!!! So my questions are:
 
1) what and when can I take the Paw Paw program after my surgery. What should I take for my cancer after surgery and before and after the dreaded radiation? I don’t want this cancer to flare up elsewhere in my body.
2) Do I take anything with and when I have radiation?
3) Are any of the herbal meds going to affect my thyroid medication?
4) Where I live fresh or organic fruits and vegetables are very hard to get. Our closest city is 3 hours away.
5) I was taking curcumin 95% 2 x 2 a day. and also taking 1 tbsp of Vital greens 1 x day. I stopped taking them 7 days before my surgery. The doctors told me to go off all medication prior to surgery.
 
Please help me with this health issue that took over my body, mind, and spirit:( GW from CAThank You very much and can’t wait to hear from you!

Answers:

1) Post-surgery: You can start taking the Paw Paw as soon as you are eating after surgery. Follow the recommendations in the book to continue to destroy any cancer cells AND to prevent cancer flare up elsewhere. Certainly post surgery, taking high levels of anti-oxidant immune boosting herbs, such as Zambroza, called Thai Go in the U.S., speed recovery. Also be sure to get your bowels moving within 12-24 hours. If needed, herbal supplements such as LB are very safe and effective, much more so than chemical formulations like Senekot, generally used in hospitals. Both the above are liquid, and can be started as soon as one is able to consume any liquids.

2)  Please determine your need for radiation  by asking the ” Questions to Ask Your Doctor” in my book. Other than the fact that this is probably ‘accepted medical protocol’, how can they determine you will definitely need radiation until they have completed the surgery? Perhaps the surgery will be completely effective, and they are only do this as a prophylactic (preventative) measure, which is very questionable.  Please ask the questions first, as this will determine your long term health outcome. If you do decide to have radiation, then yes, I would continue the Paw Paw program. In addition, there are some natural aids to lessen the side effects of radiation. We could set up a phone consultation to discuss this before you make your decisions.

3) No, none of the herbs in the basic Paw Paw Program will affect your thyroid medication, synthroid.

4) One has to do the best that one can with what is available. Again, we can cover some of this in a phone consult, as I may have some suggestions, such as sprouting to obtain organic greens, no matter where you live, sources to get you set up to accomplish this easily.

5) Pre-surgery: Most doctors do ask people to stop all supplements before surgery, as a few such as higher dosage Vit. C , Gingko Biloba, Red Clover, may thin the blood and there is a concern of excess bleeding. As herbs and supplements are not their area of expertise, they feel safer and save time doing research by requesting stopping of ALL.  Some say 24 hours ahead, some say 3 days, yours is being very cautious with 7 days.

Get a good night’s sleep pre-surgery and visualize a positive outcome! Imagine yourself coming out of surgery with a great report that all was successful.

Political Scene

Yes it is happening in Canada! Dr. Eldon Dahl, the Alberta,ND whose home was raided at gun point:

http://preventdisease.com/news/11/021511_health_freedom_teetering.shtml

The letters that people are writing to MPs, Minister of health and Harper, are starting to make a difference, but thousands more are needed to stop this government from taking away more of our natural supplements. Since 2004, only 25,900 out of 57,200 applications have received approval. This means we have already lost more than 60% of our supplements. This is costing Canadians 3 times: Health Canada’ s bureaucratic wages, increased cost to consumers, increased cost to our Health Care System.            PLEASE write a quick letter to:

Thyroid and Radiation Protection

Thyroid and Radiation Protection

 

I have had at least 40 emails about radiation protection and many queries. Research to separate the wheat from the chaff takes time. Here is my take, compiling recent information combined with thyroid information I have on files from more than 20 years. Hope it simplifies the information for you.

The thyroid is an iodine hungry gland. It will absorb any type of halide with similar molecular structure to iodine including: iodine both natural and radioactive, chlorine, fluorine, bromine, perchlorate.

If your thyroid receptor sites are saturated with healthy organic iodine you will not absorb radioactive or other unhealthy sources. If you are the least bit deficient in iodine, the body readily accepts radioactive Iodine 131.

North Americans are generally deficient in all trace minerals including iodine, which has shown itself in many diverse symptoms besides hypothyroid challenges. Deficiency being the norm, whether there is a threat from fallout or not, I believe it cannot hurt to give your thyroid a little natural boost. Many people will feel better for it. Do not overdose and pay attention to your body. Check how to monitor thyroid with basal body temperature.

How to Saturate/Nourish Your Thyroid:

 

The 3 most common ways to get iodine are:

  • increasing seaweed intake via diet and/or supplementation
  • adding black walnut, or
  • taking potassium iodine

Choose whatever method you are most comfortable or you can do a combination. There is no right or wrong, again pay attention to how you feel and monitor your temperature.

Seaweed, especially Kelp will help absorb both radioactive plutonium as well as radioactive uranium, plus has added advantage of helping to eliminate all heavy metals from your body. Some sources say that Lugol’s does not stop the plutonium absorption. Other seaweed sources are nori, dulse, kombi, all of which can be added into the diet.

Seaweed, plentiful in Iodine 127, protects the body from absorbing Iodine 131. Seaweed was studied and used extensively after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. It has been recorded that 20 years after the Chernobyl disaster, the Polish people treated with Iodine 127 have almost 1000 times less thyroid disease than neighbouring countries further from the disaster site. After WW II nuclear bombs, people living in regions of Japan where miso soup with seaweed was part of daily diet, suffered less radiation damage. Other foods that help protect the body from radiation damage are the brassicas, nettles, Pau D’Arco, all dark orange and green foods.

Dosage: 6 – 10 Kelp capsules per day. Nature’s Sunshine capsules are 525 mg per capsule and according to Dr. Ryan Drum, a world renowned seaweed and thyroid expert, an average sized adult needs about 5 grams per day for optimum health.  Be sure to use kelp that is tested to ensure it contains NO heavy metals.

Black Walnut is a natural organic iodine source that also helps kill parasites, yeast and fungus which most people harbour. This will be covered in Duncan Dinner Class (what a topic for dinner?!) Tues. April 19th. Black Walnut is available in capsules and liquid extracts. Contact our office for high quality sources.

Dosage: see Organic IODINE THYROID LOADING THERAPY with Black Walnut and herbal formulas article at end.

 

Lugol’s Iodine (named from Jean Lugol). One of the cheapest and oldest forms of iodine, declined in use when expensive synthetic thyroid supplementation took over. This is apparently what the Japan govt. is giving to its people, and what BC Health Minister has advised no one to use, and pharmacies not to sell ?!?

– 5% iodine + 10% potassium iodide in 85% distilled water

– 2 drops of Lugol’s solution (0.1ml) contains 5 mg of iodine and 7.5 mg of  iodide = 12.5 mg of iodine

Be aware Iodine can cause adverse effects for individuals who are very sensitive, although there are usually no allergies to natural iodine. If you have high levels of Candida, you may experience die off and feel temporary weakness and possibly headache or nausea. If this happens, cut back temporarily on the amount and drink plenty of water and diluted teas or juices.

Dosage: for thyroid conditions 100 – 150 mg. max per day for adult of 150 lbs. 16 drops = 100 mg ; 24 drops = 150 mg.

Take less for smaller weight, children and seniors, or if you do not experience any symptoms of low thyroid.

Divide drops in 3-4 daily dosages in water, or with apple cider vinegar, 20 mins. before food.

Start with low dose and gradually increase per day over a 3 week period.

Lugol’s is oxidative, so avoid taking anti-oxidant supplements (Vitamin A, C, E, selenium, glutathione, etc.) for the duration of your “higher-than-normal” usage of Lugol’s. You should also follow high usage of iodine products with Bifidophilus Flora Force to replenish vital intestinal flora.

Some History of Lugol’s :

The following information in italics was taken from an old Lugol’s label. The new labels do not contain internal dosage, and since synthetic thyroid drugs entered the market, with huge profits, Lugol’s use has been discouraged.

Note these dosages were for viral and bacterial infection, not thyroid, which might explain lower dosages.

Dosage: One drop if body weight is 150 lbs. (68 kg.) or less; two drops for body weight of more than 150 lbs.
Directions: Take the suggested “Dosage” above two times per week – temporally equidistant (i.e. such as Wednesday and Saturday). In times of bacterial or viral infection, take Dosage three times per week (i.e Monday, Wednesday, Friday). Take Lugol’s on an empty stomach about 20 minutes before eating in an 8 oz. (236 ml.) glass of distilled or purified water with one teaspoonful of apple cider vinegar added for slight acidification.

Some benefits of increased iodine / symptoms of low thyroid are:

hypothyroid and autoimmune thyroid symptoms improve

cancer therapies are more effective, especially hormonal cancers

other autoimmune disorders improve

fibrocystic breast syndrome improves

Candida, stuffy nose, headache, vaginitis, severe depression

adrenal exhaustion, cold hands and feet, extreme fatigue, low libido

Note: weight gain or loss is NOT a good indicator of low thyroid

Monitor basal temperature: the best way to monitor under active thyroid is the Barnes’ method. Use a regular Basal thermometer, not the digital kind.  Shake it down and put it on the bedside table at night.  First thing in the morning, before getting out of bed, place the thermometer under your armpit.  Leave it there at least 3 – 5 minutes for accurate reading.  Record your temperature, for 3 weeks in a row, so the body goes through all of its cycles during this time. If 3 consecutive wks. is not possible, then do 5 days at a time, during different weeks of the month. Temperature average should be 97.8 – 98.2 F degrees or above.

Other health tips: Increase foods rich in iodine: ocean food, radishes, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, rhubarb, potatoes, peas, strawberries, mushrooms, lettuce, bananas, cabbage, egg yolk, and onions; taking preparations known to be rich in iodine, including, kelp tablets, black walnut KC-X or TS II –  herbal thyroid support combinations, cod liver oil.

Re Radiation risk: Do not rely on government reports. As with the Gulf oil disaster, the truth was hidden. Check www.radiationnetwork.com to monitor radiation levels. Take precautions recommended IF radiation does increase: staying inside, as Iodine 131 we breathe or get on our skin is likely to be absorbed if we are Iodine deficient. Have safe water and food supplies that will not be contaminated.  If you are not supporting thyroid for any conditions listed above, I would still suggest starting iodine supplements within one to two days of any expected fallout.

 

 

Organic IODINE THYROID LOADING THERAPY

with Black Walnut and herbal formulas

This is a 3 week program adapted from article by Dr. K. Balas, ND

It has helped many people with hypothyroid “kick start” their thyroid so it starts producing adequate hormones and to avoid a life long dependence on synthetic medications.

Start: – For 3 days

1 Tbsp. Black Walnut extract in AM & 1 Tbsp. in PM

Noon: 5 caps TS II, KC-X, Kelp or Black Walnut Hulls

 

After 3 days increase to:

2 Tbsp. Black Walnut in AM & 2 Tbsp. in PM

Noon:  10 – 15 capsules of KC-X or others as mentioned above.

Do this for a total of three weeks.  Ease off at the end.

For maintenance, take 2 capsules a day of Kelp, KC-X or TS II.  Eat sea vegetables, naturally dried  unprocessed sea salt, deep-sea fish  and other suggestions above in your diet.

Basic Program for all Hormone Imbalances

Best to do the Thyroid Loading first for 3 weeks, then focus on the overall hormonal balance with the Basic Program. Contact our office for full fact sheets on any of these products.

Check with a qualified herbal nutritionist if you have questions. With kidney or other weakness, half dosage may be suggested.
