The Infinitesimal Difference between an Idiot and an Einstein

September 14th, 2016

The Miracle Mineral

There is an old medical saying that just a few grains of Thyroid hormone can make the difference between an idiot and an Einstein.

At the turn of the century, we would receive Iodine in our food supply, but sadly this is no longer true (except maybe in Japan) and is the reason why Thyroid problems are now epidemic. The Thyroid might be the most under-appreciated organ in our entire body, and crucial to intelligence formation.

It’s a tragic medical fact that a just a few microscopic grains of Thyroid hormone are all that separates super-intelligence from abject cretinism. In between these two poles of thinking ability, lies an eternity of medical and mental problems such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Autism, Mono/Bipolar Disorder, learning difficulties and slow thinking.

In Bangladesh, the rate of cretinism was once over 65% of all newborn children, until a massive humanitarian program was initiated that provided high Iodine-rich foods, supplements and table salt to the entire country. In less than 5 years, the rates of cretinism dropped by over 80% with no drug intervention needed. Not that any drug could hope to be of any help, anyway!

Iodine is the miraculous mineral element that fuels the Thyroid, even to a just-created fetus inside a mother’s womb.

The great Missing Element

Those of you who know me well, know how passionate I am about the giant necessity of minerals. They are the core of all our formulas and protocols.

An epidemic-scale problem has arrived seemingly overnight that, once again, can be instantly reversed by minerals. The thyroid is a factory and the raw material this factory requires to operate at peak efficiency is the miracle-mineral Iodine.

Today’s diet of fast food, junk food, highly-processed food like deli meats, fried chicken, pizzas and carbonated drinks and dairy products contain next to zero levels of Iodine.

So, what happens? The poor old Thyroid gets starved to death. The body spirals out of control.

And what do our dear friends in the medical and pharmaceutical industries do? Do they advocate Iodine therapy?  NO! They prescribe synthetic Thyroid drugs with all the resultant pitfalls.

Fatigue, Obesity, Depression, Dementia – do you have any of these?

Drugs never cure disease, they just treat the symptoms and invariably come with a host of side-effects that make life miserable.

There is an alternative to suffering and being fleeced of your hard-earned savings. It’s the use of a force that created us all – Mother Nature.

According to the pioneering physician Broda Barnes, author of Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness, there are at least 47 symptoms of low-Thyroid function. Barnes estimates that nearly 40% of the adult population has some form of thyroid deficiency.

Most of these are invariably overlooked by doctors and standard blood tests. These symptoms can be:

  • fatigue
  • depression
  • dementia
  • brain fog
  • low immune response
  • constipation
  • weight gain
  • fluid retention
  • irregular menstrual cycle
  • infections
  • discoloration of the skin
  • hair loss
  • drooping eyelids

This sounds like everyone around us!

A sluggish Thyroid can also be linked to a fatty Liver, high cholesterol, candida, low insulin production.

Because the Thyroid governs all metabolic processes, right down to the cellular level, every organ and system of the body can be affected by its dysfunction.

Many elderly people I have treated for Hypothyroidism have been improperly diagnosed as suffering from dementia by their regular doctor.

After a short course of our amazing Detoxified Iodine formula, their comeback was startling to them and their family. Energy levels rebounded. Thinking capacities and memory came back. Weight problems disappeared. Persistent colds and flu became a thing of the past. All because of the power of our minerals and in particular, the miracle mineral Iodine.

With nearly 40% of the population estimated to have some kind of Thyroid malfunction, the odds are that you have a Thyroid problem too.

The Edgar Cayce Thyroid Formula – a Gift from God

Edgar Cayce was "told" of the  power of Iodine

Edgar Cayce

Many of you are familiar with Edgar Cayce and his extraordinary works and readings.

Cayce was a true mystic whose connection to God and the innate intelligence of the Universe resulted in miraculous cures for all diseases using the power of Mother Nature.

His lifework  formed the basis for the renowned A.R.E. Institute in Virginia Beach, VA.  If you are ever near there, please make a pilgrimage to this Mecca of Natural Healing and Thinking.

The greatest thing that Cayce was told was the power of Iodine and that it was “the great missing link in all mankind” particularly in generating intelligence, and the role of the thyroid in treating all disease.

Detoxified Iodine DropsHe was also given the recipe for a very special formula for Iodine, which became incredibly famous during the 1930s and 40s. It was an electrified form of Iodine called “Atomidine”.

Through our association with the world’s most respected Cayce scholar and researcher, Phillip Thomas, we are able to provide the original Atomidine formula, Edgar Cayce’s Detoxified Iodine, with all its power and glory to treat thyroid malfunction.

It is a true gift from God for what it can do.

One 83 year old lady who had suffered chronic fatigue for over 20 years started using it and after a week was able to spend 6 hours in the garden doing yard-work – something she hadn’t done for “a donkey’s years”, she said.

For total nutritional support for your Thyroid, we always recommend Thyroid Energy and Marine Phyto-Plankton, formulas in addition to the Iodine drops.

Thyroid Energy is an entire Thyroid nutrition program for a healthy, balanced life free of exhaustion. With Iodine, L-Tyrosine, revered Ayurevedic herbs Ashwaganda and Guggul, along with minerals like zinc and selenium and vitamins B6 and B12 for energy and to stimulate vital thyroid hormone production.

Our Marine Phyto-Plankton formula is rich in chlorophyll, along with vitamins, trace minerals, amino acids, enzymes, essential lipids, as well the world’s most powerful antioxidants. Just one or two capsules with each meal will ensure your body and Thyroid all the Iodine, Chlorophyll and nutrients it needs. I consider Marine Phyto-Plankton to be a true SuperFood.  If you want to learn more about it, read my article, The Japanese Secret to Longevity.

Get the Kit! We’ve bundled these three formulas as the Thyroid Repair Kit with an additional discount over purchasing separately.

Our natural formulas are not only powerful, they are totally safe and can be used by children, adults, the elderly and all animals.

A dear friend, Linda Parelli, contacted me about her horse Allure, wanting to know if we can help to restore his Thyroid naturally.

Dear Friends,

When I first got Allure, I didn’t know he had a thyroid issue, but I can look back on photos now and see the enlarged thyroid gland – it looks like a little golf ball on his gullet right behind his jaw. What I mainly saw was a horse with dry coat, straw colored hair, no shine and some seriously hyper-active behavior. I can’t really remember the moment that I realized it was a thyroid issue, but from that moment on I began to treat him with great results. Interestingly, when I started giving him Parelli Essentials he made huge progress but then I hit a wall again with him and that got me searching. He looked a lot better, his hair had darkened dramatically, but that little lump was still there and his mane was still a bit frizzy.

Further Tips & Suggestions:

  • Follow the Edgar Cayce Iodine directions carefully. These were also given to Cayce in one of his readings.
  • Keep a diary of your progress on these these formulas, you won’t believe the turnaround.
  • Always take your Life Transfusion Liquid Mineral Complex at the same time for the high Magnesium content, this complements the Iodine.
  • Avoid refined sugar, fluoride toothpastes, hard liquor, hydrogenated fats and excessive caffeine. These all block the body from using its Iodine.
  • Add dry sea vegetables to all your soups, salads and meals. My favorite is from the Maine Seaweed Co, hand-harvested, dried for packaging and shipped to your door. Lots of wonderful recipes on their website too.
  • If you’re taking Synthroid, cancel this costly and next-to worthless drug and substitute our all-natural Thyroid Repair Kit which includes all three of the formulas mentioned above. It works better and costs less! Read Kimmy Keech’s story about how her energy returned and mood improved after just a few days with this natural approach.
  • Make sure you drink water that is free from Fluoride. More than 50 years ago, the American Dental Association convinced our government to add fluoride to the water supply in an attempt to prevent tooth decay in children. What they didn’t realize is that fluoride wreaks havoc on the thyroid, particularly a child’s. We developed a water filtration system to remove this dangerous chemical from your drinking water – click here to learn more about these one-of-a-kind filtration systems.

As always, here’s to your Contagious Health!

My Horse has a Thyroid?

March 9th, 2016

Can animals speak to us, telling us what it needs? Indeed, they can.

Horses in particular, communicate via their thyroid gland, which orchestrates their moods, thinking, energy and intelligence.

My dear friend Linda Parelli, co-founder of Parelli Natural Horsemanship came to me for help with her baby, a horse called Allure, inseparable from her but had somehow lost her way.

I saw all the signs of thyroid impairment. Our thyroid repair formulas worked wonders – nearly overnight! Read on to hear Linda’s wonderful testimonial about using natural supplements on her beloved horse.

Visit their website www.parelli.com and learn about the wonderful and ceaseless good these rare souls do every day for the horses of America through their holistic training methods.

People ask me all the time,

“Will your formulas work on animals?”

Yes indeed. We are all mammals and God’s creatures. All of my formulas are created with His knowledge and instruction. Read Linda’s story below and marvel at this wonderful power.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in and concern for Allure’s well-being. In response to the curiosity you expressed after last week’s post, An Update on Allure, I thought I’d take a few minutes to give you a little more detail on my experience with his health concerns.

When I first got him, I didn’t know he had a thyroid issue, but I can look back on photos now and see the enlarged thyroid gland – it looks like a little golf ball on his gullet right behind his jaw. What I mainly saw was a horse with dry coat, straw colored hair, no shine and some seriously hyper-active behavior. I can’t really remember the moment that I realized it was a thyroid issue, but from that moment on I began to treat him with great results. Interestingly, when I started giving him Parelli Essentials he made huge progress but then I hit a wall again with him and that got me searching. He looked a lot better, his hair had darkened dramatically, but that little lump was still there and his mane was still a bit frizzy.

I followed advice from Wayne Garland who I knew through my sister. They had worked together in advertising many years ago in Sydney. So we had a chat, and I started giving Allure the Detoxified Iodine and Wayne’s two thyroid products -  Thyroid Energy and green capsules called Marine Phyto-Plankton. We started on a regular dose and then increased it according to my reports and Wayne’s recommendations. Within weeks of starting this, the golf-ball-sized lump reduced until I could barely see or feel it.

When I reduced his iodine from 8 to 4 drops it was because I thought he might not need so much anymore. WRONG! But the effects took about a month to show up. First, his color started losing depth. Instead of being that rich liver chestnut, he went a kind of orangey-brown. Then the golf ball lump appeared again, and soon after he started losing weight. By the time I realized what was going on, he looked awful and was starting to get a bit lethargic. I felt terrible about it, and as soon as I put him up to 8 drops again I could see the difference.

About 2 days later, he started looking more alert again. Being winter, he’s never as dark in his coat as summer, but his shine came back and he’s putting on weight again. He’s not 100% yet, but he’s ready for exercise now. And his goiter (thyroid lump) has pretty much gone again.

Yours Naturally,
Linda

No one owns your thyroid, but You!

March 2nd, 2016

“I can still hear Dr Kim’s final words in my ear the day I left Korea for America:

“Promise me you will do for one person what I have done for you.”

That was my burning ambition in nutritional healing – to find that one person to help recover from what life can throw at you, and repay that long ago debt.

Then one day a truly wondrous woman came into my life with a plea to help her overcome a serious thyroid condition that the medico’s wanted to treat with a scalpal and high-level radiation. Would she be the one I could bring back and repay Dr Kim’s debt?

Yes, indeed she did come back and spectacularly so! Andrea Billewicz, and her husband Michael, are among my very, very closest of friends.

Sit down, listen to her voice, her instincts, and her beliefs as she fought thyroid impairment – and won.”


Andrea Billewicz’ Miracle Thyroid Story

Andrea Billewicz - Thyroid Cancer SurvivorDuring a routine physical exam in April 2004, my doctor noticed that I had an enlarged thyroid. He sent me to get a sonogram to get a better look and a few days later it showed two nodules or growths; one on each side of my thyroid gland. One was 1.2cm, the other just over twice that size.

I was then scheduled for a biopsy to check for cancerous cells and of course, the “c” word scared the heck out of me!

The results of the biopsy were inconclusive. The pathologist called them “suspicious.” I called my doctor and he said they could be benign follicular nodules or malignant tumors. To be safe, he recommended surgery to remove the growths and part, or possibly all, of my thyroid gland. He said that the only way to find out for sure if they were cancerous was to perform a tissue biopsy after removal.

“But don’t you worry,” my doctor said, “if they are malignant, surgically removing them will 100% cure the thyroid cancer. And if they turn out to be benign, then it’s no big deal. We’ll put you on synthetic hormone replacement medicine for the rest of your life, and you’ll be just fine.”

So, with the support and urging of my husband, I also called Wayne Garland that afternoon. I’d heard him speak for many years about the body’s own healing power and I wanted another option besides surgery. He replied to me immediately, saying “Oh dear, this isn’t good news, is it? But it is very reversible.

I also consulted an endocrinologist for a second medical opinion, and she scared me even more. She viewed the opinion of pathologist that cancer or precancerous cells may be present and requested an additional blood test. From this, she believed I had an 80% chance of having thyroid cancer of some kind.

She recommended IMMEDIATE surgery to remove my entire Thyroid. She then explained that after surgery, they would withhold Synthroid (an artificial form of the thryoid hormone) until I get exhausted and experience hypothyroidism and then give me a radioactive pill in the hospital and put me in an isolation room there for 48 hours afterwards. You’ve got to be kidding me – that’s horrific!

Reversible…

I kept remembering Wayne’s statement: Reversible. It was like a lifeline to me.

I contacted him again and asked for his recommendation. I told him of my fears and my objections to surgery. After our conversation, I made a monumental decision. I canceled the surgery and put myself in Wayne’s care, to see if we could battle this issue with my body’s own arsenal.

My endocrinologist was beside herself when I told her and vociferously reiterated the word “R-I-S-K” over and over again to me. I assured her that I was making an informed choice about my own body, and that it was important to me to try an alternate means to heal myself. “As long as you understand the risk…” I stuck to my guns.

Who (or What) Kidnapped My Thyroid?

February 24th, 2016

What the Heck is a Thyroid Anyway?

Are you one of the thousands, perhaps millions,of individuals (primarily woman over 40) who struggle with a sluggish thyroid?

Have you been told you have Hypothyroidism, or Hyperthyroidism. Or Hashimoto’s Disease or Grave’s Disease. How about thyroid nodules that can be both cancerous and benign?

It can be mind boggling for anyone trying to get to the bottom of whether or not their thyroid is working properly. To make matters worse, most of the time we are dealing with a medical community that just doesn’t understand what the Thyroid is, or why you are having difficulty.

Let me tell you, you are not alone!

Every day we get desperate cries for help from all over the world about thyroid impairment, thyroid exhaustion, thyroid nodules, and yes, thyroid cancer. These issues are the single most-commonly occurring hormonal disturbance in America today.

We have the answers.

Because this has become such a huge issue, we thought it was time to devote some real space in our newsletters to understanding the thyroid.

Let’s start with; What actually IS a thyroid anyway?

The Thyroid – What is it Exactly?

Thyroid Gland ImageThe thyroid is an endocrine gland located in the front of our necks. It stores and produces hormones that affect the function of virtually every organ in our bodies. Thyroid hormones Triiodothyronine or T3 and Thyroxine or T4 regulate our metabolic rate, and is associated with modest changes in body weight and energy levels.

The thyroid is the “master of metabolism” and as such controls body temperature, digestive enzyme synthesis, stomach acid production, calorie burning, fat and protein synthesis and white blood cell activity. It is crucial for menstruation and activity of all reproductive hormones.

An interesting point is that thyroid hormones are created not just in your thyroid, but also in a woman’s ovaries (Diiodothyronine or T2) and in the white blood cells of your bone marrow.

How Does it Work?

Your thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary gland, a pea-sized gland located at the base of your brain. The pituitary gland keeps checking the amount of thyroid hormone in your blood. Then it tells your thyroid to make more or less hormone so there’s always the right amount.

Your thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormone. Iodine comes from food, mainly seafood and dairy products. Iodine was added to table salt in 1924 at the request of the US Government in response to certain regions in the US where the soil was lacking natural iodine, and people in these areas were developing goiters, or swelling of the thyroid gland.

What Can Go Wrong?

The problem begins when we do not eat properly.  Diets high in junk food and heavy meat consumption can often be low in selenium, which assists in iodine production.

Sometimes the thyroid gland doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone, which is called hypothyroidism. When you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, parts of your body work too slowly.

Symptoms of underactive thyroid include:

  • Feeling tired
  • Feeling cold even when other people are comfortable or even warm
  • Having a slow heart rate and dry skin
  • Being constipated
  • Gaining weight even though you’re not eating more or exercising less than usual
  • In children, growing very slowly

Sometimes the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone, which is called hyperthyroidism. Think of your body as a car and your thyroid as the engine. An overactive thyroid makes your body idle too fast.

Symptoms of overactive thyroid gland include:

  • Feeling nervous and irritable
  • Having trouble concentrating
  • Feeling too warm even when other people don’t feel warm
  • Having a fast heart rate and diarrhea
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Losing weight without trying

Why do you Think They Call it Graves Disease?

August 22nd, 2014

I am Audra Mathews and I am a 43 year old dental hygienist in the Atlanta area. The picture above is me with my beautiful niece, Emily.

Let me preface all the following with the fact that, in my past I was a competitive collegiate swimmer with a fondness of jogging and biking as a young adult; basically, I had a fitness filled life.

Then the problems started.

I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (thyroid condition), Benign Essential Tremor, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, unexplained enlarged lymph nodes in both armpits (complete with surgical removal and benign pathology), and an Epidermoid Cyst removal from my face.  I have suffered for years with chronic wrist, neck and back pain, and last but not least, migraines.

Putting this in print, it reads: “one hot mess“.

Then in early 2013, I was introduced to Wayne Garland, Pamela Van Zee and the amazing supplements that changed my life. What a blessing.  I began working hard to remove diet soda, meat, dairy, prescription medications and gluten from my life.

I seriously consider this a lifestyle change, not just a diet change.

Remarkably, the change to a vegan lifestyle has not been a difficult transition for me.  One week I was literally eating meat at every meal and the next week I was meat free. I believe it was the cancer prevention approach that Wayne Garland introduced with these concepts that sealed the deal.

I began taking the Life Transfusion Liquid Minerals, Age-Less, DIM, Balanced Women, Progesterone Boost, Marine Phyto-Plankton, and the Thyroid supplements.

Over time, the symptoms diminished, and I experienced less work related pain and stiffness.  The tremors almost entirely disappeared, and I had fewer migraines and I began to notice more energy!

In fact, I found myself with enough energy to train for a half marathon on Thanksgiving Day 2013.  Awesome!  I was on my way back to my youthful me

Now, let’s fast forward to spring of 2014, just a  little more than one year from beginning these amazing supplements.  I had experienced some financial difficulties that temporarily transformed my budget and completely run out of these products one at a time without the funds to replace them.

Little did I realize to what extent these supplements had transformed my life!
