Anecdotal Observations by John Thomas

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

Thyroid issues are epidemic in women because of takeover by fungal yeast and their production of mycotoxins they use to control body metabolism.

The DNA of fungi [such as Candida albicans] is very similar to human DNA which allows both species to merge and create a HYBRID ORGANISM.  Gene interference is accomplished via the epigenome and microbiome.

When merger occurs, the body’s immune system no longer recognizes foreign DNA as foreign, and instead sees hybrid DNA as YOU, because it is partly, you.  This Trojan horse effect allows molds and fungi to grow and spread throughout the body, undetected by the immune system.

Iodine, selenium and zinc are CRITICAL for proper thyroid function, even in people [usually women] who have had their thyroid gland removed.  In other words, the problem that led to surgical removal of the thyroid [or nodules] and/or development of cancer of the thyroid gland, will continue to haunt the body after thyroid removal or radiation to kill the gland.

Sadly, the experts DO NOT HAVE A CLUE why women who test NORMAL for thyroid function as measured by T-4, T-3 and TSH continue to suffer from thyroid symptoms.  Goiter and hypothyroid issues are autoimmune response, as is Graves or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Prescription of drugs or surgery to get rid of the problem does not address why the problem exists.

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, they irradiate the gland to make it NON-FUNCTIONAL and the patient is forced to use synthetic thyroid drugs with all of the attendant risks for the remainder of their lives.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and hypothyroid are autoimmune responses brought on by fungal mycotoxin interference with thyroid function and lack of critically important, bio-active mineral ions.  See Mold & Fungus Protocol, here.

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 sex drive, loss of muscle mass, and cardiovascular issues are just a few of the symptoms of an under active thyroid that is missing bio-friendly iodine ions.

Iodine must be in the correct form and it must be taken with selenium and zinc in wate am and pm.  Additionally, large amounts of magnesium are needed.

Two classic conditions of thyroid insufficiency are diabetes and pre-diabetes [blood sugar levels over 90.]  Disorders of the skin [eczema and acne] to breast and prostate issues always involve 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 render the label, DIABETES.

While both pre-diabetes and diabetes are reversible, the sick-care system prescribes risky medications to control symptoms, while ignoring etiology of the patient’s problem.

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.

Thyroid dysfunction is a classic autoimmune response where the body’s immune system appears to attack the host’s body.  What is really happening is fungal yeast have seized control of thyroid metabolism.

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-active mineral ions to operate their bodies, maintain health and prevent premature aging than do men.

While not a sexual hormone, thyroid function very much affects the menstrual/hormone cycle in women of all ages.

Show me a man or woman with hormonal and premature aging issues and I will show you a person who is drastically deficient in ions of iodine, selenium, zinc and magnesium, even if they are taking pill forms, which are very poorly absorbed.
