Great post!!! You are truly inspiring to watch....I am a new raw foodist trying to figure out what works best for me...I know a can do 100% but not everyday of the week...sometimes I do steamed meals.
I was wondering about the iodine.
I too seem to have some thyroid issues as weight does not come off easily and some other issues I thought were attributed to 3 kids, being 37....MD said I was borderline hypothyroid a few years back but I refuse to take any medication unless really needed. What supplement are you using??? I have found a few and I am on the fence...I was going to go to local coop to see whats best

Thanks again ....Michele

There are several factors in the thyroid. I was not diagnosed by an MD. But I had been tested by a DC, LaC, and a Master Herbologist who practiced iridology. All three found a sluggish thyroid. The first recommendation was to take my body temperature in the morning for a week before rising. I found mine was very low. I was recommended to take 24 drops of "IOSOL" daily which can be found online. I also have kelp that I take. I am starting a high dose for 3 months to build up the thyroid and iodine reserves in my body, then I will see if I can reduce the amount to a normal dosage. Sea Veggies are great sources of natural iodine.

I also take coconut oil and try to stay away from the cruciferous foods.

I was exposed to high levels of chlorine and flouride as a child which is very damaging to the thyroid. Check to see if those are possible sources you are beng exposed to.

Thanks so much for the info...
I did the body temperature for a week and mine was also low. This with some hair loss and real slow weight loss led them to believe thyroid. I read somewhere David Wolfe also recommended Kelp powder and sea veges as well as Maca which I will be putting into smoothies...

Again thanks for you inspiring vlogs.

Hello. Coconut oil can rev up metabolism that can lead to proper thyroid gland functioning.

One coconut oil meal can elevate metabolism and keep it elevated for up to 24 hours. Since thyroid gland activity is linked to metabolism, it's not difficult to see how coconut oil can help bring about optimal metabolism and thyroid function.

Just my little two cents about the matter.

Cheers,
Frederick
