Oscar's BHT Protocol and Peripheral Neuropathy

12% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Wed, 01 Jan 14 18:01:06 -0600

01/01/2014: Angie from Southaven, Ms: "I have been reading a lot about 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) being taken internally. After reading the proper protocol my concern is keeping to the "empty stomach" schedule. Either 1 hour before or 3 hours after you eat. We could manage the 1st dose in the morning on an empty stomach, but the 2nd and 3rd throughout the day would be tough on an "empty stomach" for we eat several small healthy meals and snacks per day.

After going to a local healthfood store yesterday I found out they were sold out of the 35% food grade HP. They said they can't keep it in. But they showed me a 12% food grade and said many were using it.

On the back of the bottle, it showed how to properly take it (proper dosage, using distilled water, etc) but it said nothing about being on an empty stomach. In fact, it said to drink the 32oz daily mixed dosage of distilled water with 1/4 tsp HP (increasing HP dosage each week) and to drink 4 oz every hour. In doing this, there is no way to be on an empty stomach. You can also take 8 oz four times a day, drinking the full 32oz per day).

So my question is, is it not as much of an issue of being on an empty stomach if it's the 12% food grade vs. the 35%? The 12% would be more "doable for us but I want to make sure it's not as much of an issue if you're not on an empty stomach.

And......... do you feel you can still reap the health benefits of oxygenizing your body with the 12% as the 35% food grade, it would just lake longer due to it being not as potent?

There's a lot of literature out there about HP therapy but there are some areas that need a bit more clarity.

We truly want to start HP therapy but we want to do it safely and also as conveniently as we can. We have to realistic about being able to stick to the schedule.

Thank you for any help you can give us."

The gel formulation of DMSO contains an agent in it called carpobol and I quote and just substitute the DMSO for the first word. [0162] (Ophthalmic) [editor note here: DMSO] gels suitable for treatment of the eye include a compound or compounds of the invention suspended in a hydrophilic base, such as Carpobol-940 or a combination of ethanol, water and propylene glycol (e.g., in a ratio of 40:40:20).

[YEA]  01/01/2014: Dianne from Arco, Idaho: "First off, I have to say that I just found your site, and read through many of the posts, and noticed that the dates were a few years ago.

I had A-Fib, took all the meds, to no avail, and then had an ablation, having it all return in a month. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I'm quite an internet researcher on natural and alternative methods of health care, so now I'm doing all the natural things to help my arrhythmia. I take Chinese meds with Dan Shen in them, which really help, the L-arginine, and taurine, in large amounts, which also help my Fibro problems. I take a ton of supplements, which includes hawthorn, cayenne, salvia, which is the Dan Shen. I'd rather take more than not enough, and the Chinese doctor and herbalist said you can't take too much. the fish oils, etc. and the regular regimen of multi's, etc.

When I have an episode, I take two droppersful of the cayenne extract in a little water, and sometimes, add Ylang Ylang essential oil, rubbing it over my heart, and on the heart vitaplex, which is listed on any site as for arrhythmia and I've also taken a homeopathic called Aconitum Napelus only as directed. I've read other places that this can be helpful.

And the sorghum is good, as well. I also have magnesium oil that I rub over my heart.

In saying all of this, I guess I'll try almost anything, as it is a fearful thing to have your heart racing and out of rhythm. Maybe one of these remedies will help some of you.

Well, here we are at the beginning of another new year. May all of you have a happy and healthy one.

01/01/2014: Mike 62 from Denver, Colorado: "Val: Please let me explain concisely and accurately. The banana girl eats a raw organic banana. Enzymes, humic acids, xeronines, sulfur, and trace minerals not in cooked conventionally grown food increase the respiratory quotient. This is a fancy term for the cells functioning at peak performance. Sugar stimulates the production of insulin. Both end up in the blood plasma. Proteins unfold revealing receptors. Insulin attaches to the receptors and sugar is burned as fuel only when fat is less than 10% by calorie. Dieting is not an option because low levels of atp reduce zeta potential and increase the disease state. Cellular biologists can explain this technically. 80/10/10ers give testimonials and share recipes. The cells are not being nourished properly, and this is required, because you have heard that candida eats sugar. Candida does not eat sugar when the cells are nourished properly. All you have to do is just ignore all the diseases and nourish the cells properly. The ibs is going to require some special care. If you want to try this reply back and I'll be glad to send the details. You can study Dr. Doug Graham candida natural news, Andrew Kim Blogs why cells go bad, insulin revisited, carbon dioxide, raw food health the candida cleanse, and watch raw food for candida videos fpr more info.

01/01/2014: Man from America: "As far as the food poisoning issue or nay kind of poisoning issue, I like the activated charcoal. To my knowledge there is no limit on how much you can take. It is completely inert. I have never heard of anyone dying from an Activated Charcoal Overdose. You might need to eat some extra oil like coconut oil or Extra virgin Olive oil to help the stool pass, but other than that I don't know of any danger. If you are still feeling sick then I'd do another dose until you don't feel sick anymore. You will have to determine for yourself how long you want to wait between doses. Some times I will wait ten minutes, some times twenty depending upon how bad I feel at the time. Just a matter of determining how you feel at the moment. I'll take a tablespoon in water, and then after a while I'll do another and if I still feel bad, I'll do another. What I do is put a scoop into a glass and then put in distilled water into the glass and I chug it."

You ask where to get magnesium chloride...

You should be able to get it at any health food store or on line.

Epsom salts is magnesium sulfate. I've used that for A Fib too. I take orally magnesium citrate that an alternative MD got me on. As long as you are getting the magnesium in you I'm not sure I can determine that it really matters the form you receive it. I've asked that very question a number of times on EC but haven't gotten a response ... that is that one form is preferred. I'd love to hear from someone to lay all the different forms of magnesium out to explain what and why one is better than another.

For A Fib I also make sure I'm getting at least 400IUs of natural (NOT synthetic) vitamin E. I take the amino acid arginine also for the heart and general cardio support."

  Re: Tap Water and DMSO
Wed, 01 Jan 14 09:14:42 -0600

01/01/2014: Alert from Land-law: "This to a poster who wrote: "Here again I am not that concerned with the small amount of impurities in our drinking water and I just use tap water." ...

I think that statement shows a misunderstanding of what it is in tap water. In most cities they put Fluoride into the water; there are multiple carcinogens not the least of which is the by product of chlorination/ disinfection: Trihalomethanes (sic). There are studies that have found low dose levels of pharmaceuticals such as birth control substances, heart medications, Viagra, and the list goes on and on and on. Let me be clear here, if you drink a glass of tap water it is not going to kill you today, but over the course of years the toxic accumulation will eventually begin to have its affect. Dr. Russell Blaylock has written extensively in his news letter on the toxicity of Fluoride, Dr. Mercola, on the Internet has much to say on the dangers of the water from the tap. I do not drink tap water unless it has been processed very carefully to remove as much of the Organic vapors and heavy metals etc as it is possible to do. From my own personal research and experimentation with virtually no equipment and just my reason, logic and common sense that I discovered so much Fluoride in a particular water supply in a predominately black/ Haitian neighborhood that I took the sample I had extracted( by a process of evaporation for several gallons of tap water to about a few ounces) to a water processing expert from the Pershing Yacht Company by the name of ******* that I met by chance one day and I handed him the sample of water and before he even had the jar in his hand he said, "That's fluoride". I said to him, "Are you telling me that you are certain that that is fluoride by just looking at it?" And he said "Yes", And he opened the jar and took a whiff of it and then reaffirmed "That's Fluoride". The addition of poison to water is a criminal activity and just about every town I have lived in adds this poison to the water and so people that are drinking tap water have put their lives into the hands of the people running the sewer system where the water is attenuated ( modified with the fluoride). This is like forced medication of a population. Tap water is a medication if it has been modified with Fluoride Cursed be he that trusts in man, says the Bible. Please be aware Fluoride is classified as a toxin. So if a man is going to recommend that "He's not too worried about the tap water" and he is talking about DMSO ( which is a transport chemical) perhaps it would be beneficial to take heed. I have gathered a few links together and some information for a quick primer for people that are interested in learning and understanding.?http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/12/28/fluoride-drinking-water.aspx I hope this helps you, Dear Reader."

01/01/2014: Yvette from Grants Pass, Or: "Hi! I have several questions about using Apple Cider Vinegar, Activated Charcoal, and Garlic for a family member who has a bad case of food poisoning from 4 partially cooked eggs.

She noticed her stomach is sore after using ACV for two days. She took 2 tbsp with water twice daily. Can you safely cut back the amount you're taking to 2 tsp twice daily and still get the same results?

We also read that you should keep up this regimen for at least 10 days or until symptoms subside. Is this generally true?

What is the recommended dose for Activated Charcoal? I read that a naturopath recommended that a woman take 3-4 capsules twice daily for food poisoning.

We heard raw garlic is good for salmonella poisoning. What is the recommended dose for garlic? One clove? Two cloves? Three or four cloves? How many times daily?

Sincerely, Yvette"

  Questions About Bill's Anti-Candida Protocol
Wed, 01 Jan 14 09:06:06 -0600

12/31/2013: Val from Sarnia, Ontario: "I am 56 years old. I have had candida outbreaks for many years. In the last 3 years they have escalated to the point where I'm finding it hard to function. I've taken probiotics, antifungals and followed the candida diet but have gotten worse. This year I had several serious life stresses including the recent death of my mother.

I now have IBS, thrush, chronic fatigue and insomnia. A friend told me about the turpentine protocol. So I downloaded Bill Thompson's book Candida: Killing So Sweetly and am ready to start all the protocols. I'm very hopeful that this could be the answer for me.

My question is about the diet. You mention what we shouldn't eat but there isn't much about what to eat. Because of my IBS there are very few vegetables I can tolerate (no cabbage, garlic, onions, broccoli, etc.) and I can't eat potatoes, carrots, squash, etc. because of the high carbs so I am basically eating virgin coconut oil, butter, meat, poultry, eggs, pureed green beans, spinach & zucchini, dry cottage cheese (very low lactose) and yogurt I make myself by fermenting for 24 hours to get rid of the lactose. I'm not eating any grains at all.

You say not to eat dairy and only small amounts of meat & poultry. I know I'm eating too much meat but I don't know how to get enough calories otherwise. Should I be eating some grains? I can't tolerate gluten. Do you think that my digestives issues will improve quickly on your program?

I'm losing weight at the rate of about 2 pounds per week and can't afford to lose much more. Is there a sample diet that you or others following your protocols follow? I'd really appreciate some help."

  Re: Scalp Infection After Lice Treatment
Wed, 01 Jan 14 00:41:44 -0600

01/01/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa: "Dear Georgette,

Well, I am sorry you have had so much trouble with this!

There are a lot of natural things you can try. I think the first thing I would try would be a mixture of castor oil and extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil. Mix equal parts together. Carefully massage it into your scalp and cover with a shower cap and towel and leave in a couple of hours or overnight. Be careful not to tangle the hair. You can coat all the hair, but especially the scalp. The castor oil and coconut oil are both gentle and nourishing to the skin of the scalp. After 2 hours, or the next day, wash hair. (Probably twice.) You could do this every few days or once a week.

Try to find a way to clean your hair as gently as possible. Maybe just use baking soda to wash. (Lots of posts about it on Earth Clinic.) This might not be enough though to get the castor/coconut oil out of your hair.

Also, you can take 4 capsules of turmeric twice a day. Take it with a glass of water. Turmeric is great for inflammation and for skin conditions (and lots of other stuff, too! ) It may sound strange that something internal would help your scalp, but I have seen turmeric do amazing things for skin inflammations in my family.

Let us know how it goes. I hope you are completely cured soon.

My doctors don't think there's a thing wrong with my thyroid just because my TSH tests have always came back normal & my biopsy didn't show any cancer. As a matter of fact, they blame all of my health issues on my mind/mental health issues. I asked to be referred to a specialist but was turned down. That was expected though so I wasn't at all surprised.

I just know what I'm going to do about it. I'm taking all of this into my own hands Bill. Of course, with your help as well as others here at EC. I've just been impatient in the past along with also getting frustrated. Now that God is front & center in every area of my life I am in the right frame of mind to keep fighting. Actually, God is the one fighting this battle anyhow.

I just need for him to keep me disciplined to use your anti-candida protocol the way it's supposed to be used. I can do it I just have to keep the faith & right mindset. I know that God isn't through with me here on this earth. When I went through the renal failure I really thought my days on earth were coming to an end. It was an absolute miracle that I didn't need dialysis to keep my kidneys functioning.

God kept me here for a reason. I'm here on this earth to do God's work. I'm fighting through faith to be a full time servant for my Lord & Savior. I'm looking at this New Year as a year for new & improved health. I'm really determined to win this battle. Thanks again Bill for your time & have a Happy New Year. God Bless you for everything you do here at EC."

Apple Cider Vinegar, Charcoal, Garlic for Food Poisoning
Tue, 31 Dec 13 20:40:03 -0600

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  12/31/2013: Melissa from Ashland, Oregon: "This is a post about Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), Activated Charcoal, and Garlic. I tried these three remedies for a bad case of salmonella poisoning. I'm thinking I have food poisoning as I ate four partially raw eggs. And to be quite honest, I was skeptical--but only at first.

The apple cider vinegar was the first remedy I tried. I took 2 tbsp straight. The first thing I noticed was the calming effect it had on my stomach. It took the edge off the uneasiness, but didn't completely take away the nausea which came back an hour later. So, I took 2 tbsp of the ACV again. I fell asleep feeling better, but not cured.

The next morning, I felt like the right side of my stomach had something cooking inside. So, I took the ACV again, but this time I felt like my stomach was extremely raw and sore. I didn't want to stop taking it, so I waited 5 hours before taking the last dose.

I also began reading about active charcoal on various sites. I was reading that it absorbs bacteria and toxins, so I bought some of that later in the evening. I immediately felt sick after taking it and later began burping/tasting the fumes--which I'm still experiencing now--a day later.

I have several questions relating to my experience:

1) Should I still continue to take the ACV until I'm completely better? I'm concerned that if I continue taking it I'll eventually burn a hole through my stomach.

2) I heard raw garlic is a great remedy for salmonella poisoning and would like to go back to taking that (which I did for two days). However, I read that it, too, can cause stomach bleeding. Should I start taking that again? If so, how much? I took 4 cloves the first day and 8 cloves the second day.

3) The active charcoal still feels like it's sitting in my stomach a day later. Is this normal? Should I be taking more of it or wait until it's digested?

4) Should I take any kinds of supplements or just rest my stomach for a day? I think I should wait a day before taking anything, but I also don't want to develop more serious problems.

Any feedback, insight, or advice would be greatly appreciated!"

Tue, 31 Dec 13 17:05:27 -0600

12/31/2013: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa: "Dear Brandon,

You try washing your hair with baking soda and rinsing with vinegar. There is a lot of discussion about doing this here:


At first, it may make your hair seem more oily, but should tame it down a lot. I would give it a week or two. It is hard to find a shampoo that does not have SLS in it, which is bad for your hair and scalp and may make it harder for you to heal the acne. This should be compatible with what Dave suggested.

Have you tried any of the other things people have suggested on the acne pages? It seems like there is a lot of trial and error since the cause can be different for different people.

I agree with Dave that food could be aggravating your condition. You could also look into the PH balancing pages and try that.

Let us know how it goes! I hope you have a solution soon.

Would my opinion change? No. My observation was not based on the antibiotics issue. Except obviously some Doctor (MD) thought this was an infection or else the prescription of an antibiotic would not have been given and that would bolster my hunch that the problem you are encountering is an INFECTION.

The problem you describe, shooting pain down inner thigh when you cough or sneeze, could be pelvis twisted a bit and that pinches nerves in the dorsal and down leg. Do you feel pain in lower back...especially very low in back?

I have low back issues, two rear end collisions (I was hit)...but have not had the shooting pain, but that doesn't mean a rotated pelvis would not manifest as you describe.

I've had success with Chiropractors over the years. I've had to try different ones until I got ones who nailed the problem. Also I've had some success with physical therapists.

So if the problem is really the vertebra/pelvis maybe a good DC or PT could help."

Sodium Chloride or Sea Salt Injections for Spider Veins
Tue, 31 Dec 13 09:33:00 -0600

[YEA]  12/31/2013: Duppy from Virginia: "I like to experiment on myself a lot. If I find a cheaper route than going to the doctor, I'm happy. I share it with others too. I use insulin syringes to inject the spider veins, and varicose veins, with 30% solution of NaCl, which is sodium chloride. I honestly just use the magnesium chloride you can spray on yourself. I mix 1/3 with that solution, then I put in 2/3 of water. If you don't have the spray, just dissolve sea salt and make a solution of 1/3 salt to 2/3 water. I fill up the syringes with that and be prepared for the sting. It does sting, which is normal. Docs don't use this type of solution anymore because it stings. I luckily was able to get my hands on some Lidocaine which I swiped from a doctor's office (I'm poor! ). I mix that in the solution a bit, which helps alleviate the pain.

Honestly, this is just what sclerotherapy is, but without the exorbitant price. I've had it done a few times and I just cannot afford the 3k bill to have this done every few years. I figured out how to do it myself. Make sure you only inject just a little bit into the veins, but right INTO the veins. It'll cause the spider vein to collapse in on itself. You're just injecting saline into your body, which isn't harmful. Just don't freak out when you see bruises because that's normal and they'll heal.

Obviously, if you're diabetic, don't try this on your own. Also, when you inject a vein with one of those insulin needles (which are super thin) if you see blood that comes out of your skin, that means you did good because you injected the spider vein."

I had apple cider instead of the apple juice, and felt the difference couldn't be much and went ahead and mixed it with the vinegar.

  Re: Ted's Remedies for Hep C
Tue, 31 Dec 13 02:36:56 -0600

12/31/2013: Bill from San Fernado, Philippines: "Hi Crystal...Concerning Ted's Hep C cure using Lysine, threonine vitamin c and glutamine, as he states in this post he does use ibroprufen for 5 hrs a day for only a week. He uses the ibroprufen because it rapidly helps to kill the hep c virus. Aspirin also kills enveloped viruses. On that page he also states that he always tries to adjust a remedy to the sufferer, sometimes using aspirin or bloodroot instead. There may even be occasions when Ted would not use ibroprufen against Hep C. This really depends on what else is wrong with the person he is helping. We are not clones after all -- we are all different.

I also trust Ted because he is a qualified biochemist who has obtained his qualifications at American Universities and he has also worked both in the US food industry and in the US medical drugs industry in America. In fact I would far more trust Ted's judgement on drugs than any doctor's limited opinion because doctors do not know the biochemistry and dangers of drugs and chemicals. At their worst, doctors are really just salesman for the drugs companies whose treatments for chronic diseases in particular are mostly very expensive and only ever palliative (with no real cure in sight -- just disease accommodation). Also please remember that Ted gives his advice for free and, also unlike many doctors, his only focus is actually on curing people. That is his only motivation. Furthermore, Ted is not a particularly rich man (unlike most modern doctors and specialists).

I have never had occasion to use ibroprufen, but I regularly use aspirin, lugol's iodine, lysine, hydrogen peroxide and turpentine in my own protocols. If I said this to any regular modern doctor then he or she would probably scream poison despite the fact that I am extremely healthy for a 63 year old man.

Lysine is an amino acid -- in other words it not a drug but it is food. Lysine is found in many foods and is an essential amino acid for the body. Lysine in the body helps to raise the seratonin levels or the "feel good factor" of the body which also tends to stimulate greater production of macrophages and T-Helper white blood cells of the immune system. These entities are particularly useful for fighting viruses in the body -- which includes Hep C, Herpes etc.

Unfortunately, you wont find any double blind placebo testing or research on ibroprufen or Lysine killing viruses like Hep c (I know this because I've searched for it). But any competent and honest biochemist such as Ted will already know this as a fact because of their biochemical training and knowledge."

12/31/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Dear Ruthie,

You relate blocked tear ducts, swollen sinus and mucus in throat and ask if possibly related.

A Big Fat YES. If this were me...

I'd try colloidal silver ... gargle with the CS, sinus irrigation with the CS...into both sinuses and I'd be aggressive; I'd really try to get the silver way back into the sinus cavity; part of irrigation is shooting CS into ear canal and finally, I'd drip CS into eyes, two drops into both eyes, twice in one day and repeat the next day. I've done the CS as eye drops many times. I don't apply in eyes more than two days (twice in two days) as the CS will take away the surface of eyeball if overused.

I'd keep up the sinus irrigation for two weeks. I'd also assume an infection as you describe might be system wide and so would begin drinking a tablespoon daily (oral) for three months.

Likely the virus has blocked the tear ducts. Same virus has caused all the other symptoms also."

  Re: Remedies Needed For Scalp Acne
Tue, 31 Dec 13 00:17:53 -0600

12/31/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hi Brandon,

About the scalp issue: Two suggestions.

First the condition could be the result of acidic reaction to too much acidic foods; ketchup...chili, tomatoes; Food reaction is what I'm thinking and I've had such a reaction (not so severe) as you are discussing. When I get away from acidic foods the reaction is much less. If I apply isopropyl alcohol to the outbreaks it will sting but immediate relief. An even more effective over the counter is "Scalpicin"...

Second: This condition might be an infection, fungal... like ringworm, microsporum canis; or scabies...microbiotic mites. For the former I use an over the counter cream, like Tenactin, or Lamisil, which has Terbinifine as the active ingredient. Tenactin has a different active ingredient that also kills ringworm fungus.

If you've been around cats and dogs as indoor pets growing up, you just might have the later problem...rather than the food reaction."

Questions For Bill Regarding Ted's Remedies for Hep C

12/30/2013: Crystal from Hawaii: "Question for Bill from Phillipines. In a 04/08/2010 post from Ted from Bangkok he mentions a protocal that I would like your opinion on. He says to take ibuprophen and lysine for hepatitis c. He says to take 200 mg Ibuprophen 5 straight hours a day along with 1000 mg lysine for a week. At the end of a week stop ibuprophen and continue with lysine for a month. At 1000mgs at 5 hourly doses per day.

I hear bad stories about ibuprophen yet I was given 800 mgs per day in 3 doses for six months..YES 800 mgs 3x per day for severe whiplash in a car accident..in 1994..I got hepatitis c in 1969. When I got my enzymes checked in 2003 they were normal until I was talked into a biopsy which sent my enzymes up to the mid 300's...What do you feel about Ted's protocol as I also hear lysine might not be the thing for hep-c..Sometimes science finds different results for different health protocals.

  Re: Bill's Candida Diet
Mon, 30 Dec 13 18:50:02 -0600

12/30/2013: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Tony...I'm not at all surprised that doctors are so clueless about Grave's and Hashimoto's. All doctors follow their Standard of Care bibles, so if these references are wrong in the first place then the doctors will be wrong in both their diagnosis and treatment of thyroiditis. Even if you do have thyroid nodules or goiter, which is such an obvious symptom of thyroid problems -- but if your thyroid TSH level is normal then most docs will say that your thyroid is normal. A very dumb diagnosis -- but all according to the guidelines of their Standard of Care manuals.

But the fact that you do actually have thyroid problems -- nodules and goiter no less -- must mean that you have either Graves or Hashimoto's Disease.

Here is how Dr Guy Abraham's, in his paper -- Facts About Autoimmine Thyroiditis -- explains autoimmune thyroiditis and thyroid nodules:

"Inadequate iodide supply to the thyroid gland, aggravated by goitrogens, activates the thyroid peroxydase (TPO) system through elevated TSH, low levels of iodinated lipids, and high cytosolic free calcium, resulting in excess production of H2O2. The excess H2O2 production is evidenced by the fact that antioxidants used in Bagchi’s experiments did not interfere with the oxidation and organification of iodide and therefore neutralized only the excess oxidant. This H2O2 production is above normal due to a deficient feedback system, caused by high cytosolic calcium due to magnesium deficiency and low levels of iodinated lipids which requires for their synthesis iodide levels two orders of magnitude greater than the RDA for iodine. Once the low iodide supply is depleted, TPO in the presence of H2O2 and organic substrate reverts to its peroxydase function, which is the primary function of haloperoxydases, causing oxidative damage to molecules nearest to the site of action: TPO and the substrate thyroglobulin (Tg). Oxidized TPO and Tg elicit an autoimmune reaction with production of antibodies against these altered proteins with subsequent damage to the apical membrane of the thyroid cells, resulting in the lymphocytic infiltration and in the clinical manifestations of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Eventually, the oxidative damage to the TPO results in deficient H2O2 production. Hypothyroidism occurs in AIT when oxidation and organification of iodide in the thyroid gland become deficient enough to affect synthesis of thyroid hormones."

Just to recap, the main reasons that cause the above thyroiditis problems are:

1. Low Selenium levels in the diet, which reduces the production of glutathione peroxidase. Low GP therefore allows excessive build up of Hydrogen Peroxide during production of T3 and T4 in the thyroid cells. Selenium is essential for creating the GP that, as an anti-oxidant -- safely quenches the excessive Hydrogen Peroxdide build-up during thyroid hormone production and which, when HP is in excess, can cause thyroid nodules .

2. Excessive Calcium in the diet(together with low dietary magnesium). Excessive dietary Calcium acts as a goitrogen which acts to inhibit the uptake of iodine in the body. Magnesium acts to help regulate calcium to proper levels in the body.

3. Inadequate supply or low levels of iodide in the body which are so obviously needed needed for proper levels of T3 and T4 production.

Excess calcium and fluoride can cause many other problems in the body. Calcium can bind with fluoride and can accumulate in the bones, and teeth. Fluoride also accumulates in the glands -- including the pituitary and thyroid which can act to further corrupt and cause thyroid regulation problems. Obviously, if calcium and fluoride are in excess in the body, iodine uptake at the cellular level will be greatly inhibited due to the competitive nature of these goitrogens. Therefore a low calcium/high magnesium diet as well as supplementing iodine (to chelate and remove fluorine) and magnesium are advised.

Bromine also inhibits iodine uptake by causing corruption of the NIS (Sodium-Iodide symporter) network which is essential for proper distribution of iodine throughout the body at the intestinal and cellular level. Absorption of iodide/iodine can therefore be much improved by taking higher dose vitamin C and by also supplementing lugol's iodine(to remove the bromine) and by taking the Salt Loading protocol.

This is also why I usually advise that people who have thyroiditis and hypothyroid problems should have a hair analysis(quite cheap). This will tell you what your selenium, iodide, calcium and magnesium levels are. It might also show excessive levels of bromine and fluorine(which are also goitrogens) and heavy metals in your body. This will therefore help you to confirm your thyroid problem and also necessitates a more focused protocol.

One year ago when my roommates were swearing by ACV as a cure all I figured what the heck- so I tried it and immediately got a TERRIBLE headache and some itchiness on my forearms, I was devastated and thought I was deathly allergic to this liquid that I had high hopes for.

Rhe next time I went and saw my acupuncturist he randomly recommended I try Apple Cider Vinegar and I told him I couldn't because I was allergic to it. He let me know that what I was experiencing was a detox sign and that it was actually a good thing. I was still quite scared of it but eventually (maybe a month later) tried it again out of desperation.

This time I drank it and had a mild headache but within 2 days noticed my sinuses clearing up, better sleep at night, and more energy during the day. (and no crazy itchiness on my forearm! )

Today I drink it all day long, I no longer need to dilute it in juice, I just drink it with water, stevia and lemon. I love the energy it gives me and I literally CRAVE it now, I very rarely drink plain water- just this and fresh juice.

The Apple Cider Vinegar along with dietary changes has helped with a number of issues, such as PCOS, allergies, acne, low energy and poor sleep to name a few. - I actually use it as a toner for my acne too- I mix water lemon and Apple Cider Vinegar together in a bottle and put it on a cotton pad which I wipe my face with, this is going to sound weird, I use it as a deodorant (cotton ball, and add lime if you have some) and hair conditioner also. (you can find amazing tonic recipes online for rosemary and thyme and Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinses- yummy) and to think the first time I used it I thought I was allergic! I love this stuff geez I even clean with it sometimes, the list goes on!

I wanted anyone on here to know, that if you have a bad experience with it the first time, to not give up hope. maybe try it again later if you feel up to it. ` peace and love`"

Normally I'll shower 2 times a day in summer if working outside. I was told I would not be able to shower for 2 weeks after the op., and that was catastrophic to me as I hate being smelly or sticky. I showered every 7 or 8 days, and didn't smell. After the operation the body smell started. I assume it was my body detoxing from the anesthetic and antibiotics. Now 3 months later I still get a dreadful strong odor if I can't shower every other day.

You explained it so beautifully so adding this additional information will help tremendously in understanding what's happening in our bodily systems depending on how it's taken.

I wanted to discuss something with you, Bill. I fully read your updated article on Iodine that you kindly provided me. I noticed something from the article that certainly directly relates to my health crisis.

You mention "auto-immune thyroiditis (nodule formation)" in the article. I then looked up that condition. I have thyroid nodules as well as a goiter which is a swollen thyroid gland. With these conditions would you consider me to probably have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis? I know it really doesn't matter the diagnosis because I'm going to follow your steps necessary to get rid of this condition.

I'm just curious as to what your opinion/diagnosis would be for me with my thyroid problems? I've brought up Graves disease and Hashimotos to my doctors but they looked at me like I was crazy of course. It's like I don't even have a thyroid problem art all to them. Thanks and God Bless!"
