I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism which my endocrinologist told me caused a very slow metabolism. I had been on a Vegan diet for two years and ate soy 'everything'. A biochemist told me I needed to change my diet and so I started eating fish. I had been very slim and energetic and was now slow, depressed and over weight.
I discovered this site a few months ago and started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and have noticed that I am losing weight and have lots more energy. My cravings for a sugar fix has stopped. I am also oil pulling and rinse my mouth with diluted H202 after. I look 20 years younger than what I am (though I have always taken care of my skin). The lines I had under my eyes have disappeared and my teeth are whiter.
My sense of well being and confidence is increasing and I am feeling more like I did prior to my diagnosis.
Perhaps get a doctor to check out your thyroid.
Thankyou EC with all my heart. I am eternally grateful.
Luv to all Susan
HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN,,,,,,,,,,
As all know, I's SJS. As a Ga. Tech Ch E we studied that if the arrow going into the box was longer than the arrow coming out, then the box had to get bigger. That works for simple chemical reactions, but not complex ones. Folks get fat because they eat more than they expend? Not necessarily….. when your metabolism is controlled by your Thyroid, which is controlled by iodine, then the arrow thing is out the window. All our ancestors were thin and chiseled faced. What has changed? First, they ate little processed food and bread they baked themselves or from a local baker, both contained iodine and no bromine.
Let's get back to to the importance of iodine and your metabolism. Iodine is a Halogen in the Periodic Chart along with Florine, Chlorine and Bromine. All three of these dominate iodine and will replace it in your body. Years ago, our bread flour contained iodine. Big Agri learned that Bromine would also preserve bread and was a lot cheaper. Now all commercial bread products are loaded with Bromine. Folks that eat too much restaurant bread are most likely overweight. All because Big Agri now uses bromine instead of iodine to preserve the flour.
I understand this is not the sole reason for obesity, but one that you can address. I challenge you to bake a loaf of bread with a flour that was never bleached, nor bromated as my Tractor Driver does. Take a slice of this along with a bun from McDonald's, put these in the frig and see when each will mold first. Your bread will mold with in 10 days. The McDonald's will not mold in 6 months or maybe even 6 years. If you don't buy into my logic then do the internet search thing. Most of the ails on EC can be avoided by eating healthy food and/or behaving ourselves.
If this does not stir up a stink……. then I did something wrong. =========ORH===========
