This is a great movie/documentary on LYME DISEASE. It’s a free watch from HULU.com and well worth the time to delve into this elusive disease.  

Gather around the living room and educate yourself and others. This documentary is extremely informative.

THYROID SUFFERERS STORY…

28 Oct

We have Sherry’s story up on the new eaware.org site…

I’m happy she’s mentioned the *SOY* because soy is known to disrupt thyroid and estrogens in the system and I advise people to stay away from them at all costs.

Just another in the long line of sad thyroid stories but most of them have a happy ending.

NEXT STEP: TAKING OUR DESICCATED THYROID AWAY

28 Oct

This recent article talks about how thyroid supplements (read in there ADRENAL supplements as well) are causing the general public more problems than they do good. I agree that many people overdo their intake of nutrients and vitamins but there are just as many who do not abuse them. Learning to self treat is a long process but it is easy once you get the hang of it.

What scares me about this article is that I fear they will try to take our Desiccated thyroid extract from us so we won’t be able to self treat and our health will go down the tubes.

After immediately reading this, I placed an order for ERFA and bought several bottles.

Desiccated thyroid extract has a very long shelf life, about 12 years before it fades. As long as you keep the bottles unopened and unrefrigerated/frozen, they last a long time. Just keep them in your kitchen cupboard away from moisture.


ScienceDaily (Oct. 27, 2011) — People who use over-the-counter “thyroid support” supplements may be putting their health at risk, according to a study being presented at the annual meeting of the American Thyroid Association. The supplements contain varying amounts of two different kinds of thyroid hormones apparently derived in large part from chopped up animal thyroid glands, says the study’s senior investigator, Victor Bernet, M.D., an endocrinologist at Mayo Clinic in Florida.

The hormones are known as T3, or triiodothyronine, and T4, or thyroxine. They are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and intended for use only in prescription medication because they can cause significant health issues, such as an increase in heart rate, heart irregularities and palpitations, nervousness, and diarrhea, Dr. Bernet says.

GOING POSTAL……

26 Oct

Thought I’d put up these dates for you…we have many people who order supplements, thyroid meds etc. online and have them shipped to their home. During Mercury Shadow/Retrograde periods, the  mail/post gets shaky. Many items are lost in transit or delayed. When you order during the retro period, expect problems. 

As you can see by this chart the next retro period starts on Nov 5 2011 and goes through to January 1 2012.

Chances are good you’ll have postal problems during this time.

And the truth !

We’ll get there, not to worry.

Pneumonia, Multiple Sclerosis & Severe Asthma…..TAKE VITAMIN D3

20 Oct

VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY IN THE NEWS AGAIN, IT SEEMS WE’RE GETTING MORE AND MORE RESEARCH COMING DOWN THE PIPES.  SUPPLEMENTING SEEMS TO HELP CURE SO MANY AILMENTS. 

“It is therefore plausible that the link between airway smooth muscle mass and lung function in severe asthma may be partly explained by low levels of vitamin D.”

The authors concluded that “improved understanding of vitamin D and its role in immunity may lead to better ways to prevent or treat pneumonia. We now need to investigate whether vitamin D supplements could be a useful addition to pneumonia treatment and whether using supplements could help to prevent or reduce the severity of pneumonia among high-risk populations.”

Higher Vitamin D Levels Equal Lower Risk of Multiple Sclerosis:

The journal Neurology reports a protective effect for high vitamin D levels and sun exposure against the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS).

PEANUT BUTTER BLUES….

20 Oct

WE WERE NOTIFIED LAST WEEK THAT PEANUT BUTTER PRICES IN THE US WILL BE GOING WAY, WAY UP ! I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS WILL EFFECT OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD BUT MANY OF US USE PEANUT BUTTER AS AN INEXPENSIVE AND DELICIOUS SOURCE OF PROTEIN FOR OUR SMOOTHIES AND EVERYDAY DIET.

I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF BIG TUBS YESTERDAY WHICH SHOULD LAST SEVERAL MONTHS AT LEAST.

THIS IS BEING BLAMED ON CLIMATE CHANGES.

Wholesale prices for big-selling Jif are going up 30% starting in November, while Peter Pan will raise prices as much as 24% in a couple weeks.Unilever would not comment on its pricing plans, but a spokesman for Wegmans Food Markets said wholesale prices for all brands it carries, including Skippy, are 30 percent to 35 percent higher than a year ago.

Kraft Foods Inc., which launched Planters peanut butter in June, is raising prices 40 percent on Oct. 31, a spokeswoman said.

MANIFEST HAPPY…

19 Oct

It’s nothing new, it’s been around since Father Time. Keeping a smile on your face and thinking positive really does manifest as happy, or healthy. It starts at the beginning…how should you proceed?  Will your choice be to think the glass half full or half empty? Thoughts have power just as FEAR has power. Don’t give your power away, capitalize on it and manifest something great.

A bit of optimism for you:

 

“Everything’s going to be fine.” Go on, try to convince yourself, because realism can be bad for your health. Optimists recover better from medical procedures such as coronary bypass surgery, have healthier immune systems and live longer, both in general and when suffering from conditions such as cancer, heart disease and kidney failure (Annals of Behavioral Medicine, vol 39, p 4).

It is well accepted that negative thoughts and anxiety can make us ill. Stress – the belief that we are at risk – triggers physiological pathways such as the “fight-or-flight” response, mediated by the sympathetic nervous system. These have evolved to protect us from danger, but if switched on long-term they increase the risk of conditions such as diabetes and dementia.

MARTY FELDMAN AND GRAVES DISEASE

17 Oct

MARTY FELDMAN was indeed a much beloved actor. It was GRAVES disease which made his eyes protrude. 

A SHORT BIO:

Mini Biography

“I am too old to die young, and too young to grow up,” he told a reporter — a week before he died. This beloved comedian, who poked fun at himself as well as others, was born Marty Feldman, on July 8, 1933, in London, England. The son of immigrants from Kiev, Marty spent his childhood in the poverty-stricken London East End and left school at the age of 15, hoping for a career as a jazz trumpeter (his appearance in a Variety show earned him the title “the worst trumpeter in the world”). He had just started his comedy career, as a writer for BBC radio programs and TV shows in the late 1950s, when he married Lauretta Sullivan in January 1959 (they would stay married until his death in 1982). There’s a saying: “Your face is your fortune”; Marty had received a double-whammy. His nose was mangled in his youthful years in a boxing match; his walleyed orbs were the result of both a hyperactive thyroid and a botched operation after a car accident before his 30th birthday, in 1963.

NARCISSIST’S REACTION TO CRITICISM…

16 Oct

I had a conversation with someone today who’s suffering from the effects of a narcissistic parent and I suggested these videos to them and a couple of books. I thought many of you may enjoy watching some of these as well. Sam wrote a great book and his videos are extremely informative.

Narcissism is a disorder that causes so much pain but many people are unaware that there’s a name for it.  Once they start to study it,  a whole new awareness comes over them and they can finally release it and move on.
