Anecdotal Observations by John Thomas

Thyroid: a critical regulatory gland that makes thyroid hormone for regulating metabolic rate and sensitivity to other hormones and considered the master regulatory organ of the body.

Thyroid issues are epidemic in women because of hormonal issues resulting from fungal yeast take-over by fungal yeast, and the production of mycotoxins used to control hormones and body metabolism in the human body, so fungi can complete their lifecycle.

Know, DNA of fungi [such as Candida albicans] is very similar to human DNA and allows DNA of both species to merge and create a HYBRID ORGANISM that is reflected in the human epigenome and microbiome.

When merger occurs, the body’s immune system no longer recognizes foreign DNA as foreign. The immune system sees hybrid DNA as YOU because it is partly you, allowing molds and fungi to grow and spread throughout the body.

Iodine is absolutely CRITICAL for proper thyroid function, even in people [usually women] who have had their thyroid gland removed; in other words, the problem that lead to surgical loss or development of cancer in the gland, will continue to haunt the body after removal or radiation to destroy and kill the gland.

Sadly, the experts DO NOT HAVE A CLUE why goiter develops or autoimmune responses like Graves or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis occurs, so they prescribe drugs or surgery to get rid of the problem.

Goiter is a hypertrophied (abnormally enlarged thyroid gland) that gives the appearance of a fat neck.  After 1920, surgical REDUCTION of the thyroid was the official ‘cure!’  Today, the irradiate the gland to make it NON-FUNCTIONAL and the patient is forced to use synthetic thyroid drugs with all of the attendant risks.

Goiter is a classic symptom of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis which is considered to be an autoimmune condition.  Unfortunately for patients, the source of the so-called autoimmune response is caused by mold and fungal infestation and mycotoxin production that create autoimmune like symptoms by interfering in normal thyroid metabolism.  Think mold and fungus.

Iodine is used by every organ and all cells and tissues in the body.  Without it, you will age and you will suffer!  Coldness, slow metabolic rate, obesity, low energy, foggy brain, loss of muscle mass, and cardiovascular issues are just a few of the symptoms of lack of bio-friendly iodine ions.

Two classic conditions of iodine [and thyroid] insufficiency are diabetes and pre-diabetes.  Disorders of the skin, with all of heir diagnostic labels from eczema and cancer, always involve iodine ion insufficiency.

Pre-diabetes is a term that applies to everyone who is not officially, diabetic.  In other words, people live their entire lives in the pre-diabetic state. Only when metabolism gets out of control does the doctor apply the label, DIABETES.

While both pre-diabetes and diabetes are reversible, the sick-care system has NOT A CLUE and instead prescribes risky medications to control symptoms, while ignoring cause.

Iodine is STORED in the thyroid, ovaries and breasts [prostate and testicles in men].  These high energy organs simply CANNOT FUNCTION without a daily supply of bio-active iodine ions.

Supposedly, the thyroid is regulated by TSH hormone (thyroid stimulating hormone), T-4 and T-3 levels, but there is more to the story and plenty of evidence that many thyroid problems are autoimmune in nature, and indicative of severe lack of iodine ions.

In other words, patients are given false and misleading information about their ‘thyroid’ disorder to construct a case for ‘clinical’ disease, when it is NOT clinical, at all!  For a better understanding, see the term Clinical in Glossary link above.

Thyroid hormones are ‘regulatory’ hormones that function as your body’s gas pedal in conjunction with other regulatory hormones, such as insulin and leptin.

Thyroid dysfunction is a classic autoimmune response where the body’s very own immune system attacks the host’s body. Thyroid problems are more prevalent in women than men by a ratio of 100:1.  Interestingly, women’s bodies need ten times (10x) more bio-friendly iodine ions to operate their bodies, maintain health and prevent premature aging.

While not a sexual hormone, thyroid function very much affects the menstrual/hormone cycle in women of all ages post puberty.  Iodine is stored in the thyroid, breasts, and ovaries in females; in males, add prostate and testicles.

Show me a man or woman with hormonal issues and premature aging issues and I will show you a person who is drastically deplete of iodine, selenium and magnesium ions.

Thyroid regulates energy, body temperature, memory and mental faculties in a similar but different and interdependent way that insulin and leptin resistance affects blood sugar levels, of which so-called normal levels are 20-50 points high.

Thyroid and insulin/leptin hormones affect women in many of the same ways as men in regard to BMI (body mass index), fat levels, energy, muscle mass formation and bone maintenance.

Prevalence of hypothyroidism in women is epidemic, the condition being a reflection of insufficient available iodine, sllenium and magnesium ions, poor diet and dietary habits.

Intake of bio-active iodine is CRITICAL for women to make adequate amounts of thyroid hormone and to protect the breasts, ovaries, uterus and thyroid from cancer.  [For men, add prostate and testicles.] Bio-active iodine is available from Young Again Club.

While thyroid medications, both synthetic and so-called natural, are useful for alleviating the misery and some symptoms associated with thyroid dysfunction, they do NOT restore normal function or reverse the disorder.

Individual guidance is advised; each woman must be actively involved in the process.  Everyone is a bit different.

Thyroid affects skin, hair, energy, mental acuity, brain fog, osteoporosis, goiter, nails, temperature, menstrual/hormone issues and menopausal complaints.

For women who are having hormonal difficulties, particularly menopausal and post menopausal issues, it is important to understand that stress affects the adrenals which affects the thyroid, hormonal balance, sweats, hot flashes and sleep.

It should be noted, that insulin and leptin resistance is a CORE factor in adrenal and thyroid issues; so much so, that if resistance issues are not resolved, hypothyroid, obesity, premature aging and systemic inflammation, (particularly in women) can be expected.

Lastly, there is STRONG evidence that cognitive issues from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to vascular dementia, brain fog, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s and autism are directly related to poor thyroid function, insulin/leptin resistance, low-grade inflammation and adrenaline resistance.

Bio-active iodine is critical for both sexes and particularly women.  Women cannot expect to maintain their beauty and youthfulness when thyroid function is poor to marginal.  Thyroid medications are, at best, a poor approach and a bad band-aid.
