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.

    I was wondering if you can suggest me something about my problem.
    I’ve puffy eye bags ! i’ve tried almost everything (ice,tea,potatoes etc) even if i sleep 8 hours ,these bags are still there.(usually,i have no orderly sleeping hours and i use computer a lot). It wasn’t like that before and i am not that old either (35),i don’t smoke,don’t use much of salt and no allergies either.
    Anything else u suggest?

      Puffy eyebags could mean several things. Do you have dark circles under your eyes too? This is often an iron and/or iodine deficiency and will subside when these levels of nutrients come up. Do you happen to have any lab results for iron, or thyroid labs such as TSH, Free T3 or Free T4?

      We are having a really bad pollen season now and this can also be a problem. I do suggest a neti pot rinse at least a couple times a day. In this rinse, use only UNREFINED sea salt such as Celtic Sea salt and you can also put a tiny bit of baking soda in the warm water. This often will help. It is always good to stay away from sodium in the refined salt form, but the UNREFINED salt is very good for you as it gives us the 84 essential trace minerals which we need. It will also help to drink a tablespoon of organic bragg’s apple cider vinegar in a glass of water each day, this will immediately bring your body into the Alkaline state which is the healing state of the system.

    Interesting that you just joined my blog….Creator was setting this communication up between us I guess 🙂 Glad to have you aboard. I have struggled for years trying to right both thyroid and adrenal. It is not easy when you refuse to take pharmaceutical drugs. The main reason was because I want my thyroid to work on its own! Once you start that poison, your own thyroid stops working and hands over the reins to the medication! No way! I’d rather have a thyroid just limping along when they take away all our drugs than a thyroid that doesn’t work at all.I have been on the low dose naltrexone and it reversed my Hashimotos for quite a while so I went off it. Everything went haywire. I am back on it again and hope things are getting better. I retest in a couple of months. Glad you popped into my site so I could find this one! Blessings to you…VK

      Hi VK: Yes, we have a horrendous epidemic of both hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue going on which is effecting the entire world. Too much processed foods and not enough T3 hormone to give the mitochondria enough energy to run the body. The synthetic T4 (synthroid, Levo etc.) can’t be converted to T3 in most people’s bodies so they suffer and get lost in a world where hopeless reigns. So happy to be at your blog as well. I try to read a few channelings, etc. a day to keep abreast and to confirm that I’m feeling the same upgrades to DNA. If you want to chat, you can always reach me at

        Thanks I appreciate that. There are many factors compromising our bodies right now and it is surprising we are adapting at all. It is definitely an ongoing struggle. I’ll stay in touch. Good to have another educated mind to chat with on this subject. Take care and have a great weekend! Blessings….VK
