1. Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose are particularly harmful to anyone with a thyroid disorder and may actually initiate and exacerbate thyroid disorders.

2. Hyperparathyroidism and Hypothyroidism
Hyperparathyroid symptoms and Hypothyroid symtoms mimic each other. While some doctors do not believe in the relationship of the parathyroid and the thyroid glands other than their close proximity, other physicians draw a link to the calcium regulation function of both glands.

3. Anxiety Attacks in Hashimotos Thyroiditis Patients
The relationship between hypothyroidism and anxiety symptoms is well established in medical research conclusions. Severe and chronic anxiety is not exclusive to hyperthyroid patients but also affects many that are hypothyroid.

4. Beyond TSH, T4 and T3 Blood Tests
What do you do if your standard thyroid blood tests come back in the normal range, but you don't feel normal? What tests should you ask for? What if your doctor won't conduct the tests? What can you do to help yourself?

5. Hypothyroidism and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Joint and muscle pain and stiffness are common hypothyroid symptoms that usually improve with thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Some patients may not see significant imrovement and may need to be tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis.

6. Menstrual and Fertility Disorders
Thyroid function impacts fertility in both women and men. Thyroid disorders impact a women's menstrual cycle as does the excessive amounts of estrogen found in our environment. Bringing the body back to hormonal balance can eliminate menstrual problems and enhance fertility.

7. Fulvic and Humic Acids
Fulvic and humic are powerhouse substances that have exceptional nutritive, antioxidant and electrolyte qualities. They will benefit the health of anyone who takes them and can also be effective in establishing a healthy metabolism, repairing damaged cells and chelating heavy metals.

8. Breast Health and Iodine
Law makers and doctors are recognizing that mammography is not a reliable method for detecting cancer in patients with dense breast tissue. Thyroid patients often also have fibrocystic breasts. Iodine supplementation can cure fibrocystic breasts and decrease the potential for developing cancer.

9. Autoimmune Disorders and Gluten Intolerance
Gluten Intolerance and/or Celiac Disease can cause several autoimmune disorders, including Hashimoto's and Grave's Disease. Avoiding gluten can lessen the symptoms associated with these disorders and can even cause an improvement in thyroid function. I share my personal experience with gluten.

10. Estrogen Dominance
Estrogen dominance is plaguing our world. Plastics, cosmetics, cleaning products, foods, soy, pesticides, birth control pills, air fresheners and even laundry soap are contributing to the toxic levels of synthetic estrogen hormones in our environment. What is this doing to your health?
