Hypothyroidism is merely a symptom of things going wrong in the body. Let's find the cause because the medical
treatment for hypothyroidism manipulates the thyroid hormone levels with little or no regard to causes.
Daily health posts for July 23, 2014:
Lifestyle: Are you broke, overweight and depressed? A new study shows a way to fix two out of three of those
problems. Lose weight and get happier! Duke University helped severely economically disadvantaged obese
women with their weight and significantly reduced depression in around half the study participants. One of the key
items on the no-no list for these women was NO FAST FOODS! That makes me happier just thinking about that one.
The other thing these women got was a bright and shiny YMCA membership to work out with. Of course,
accountability went a long ways with phone calls and a personal health coach. A full 20% of both the study group and
the control group were moderately to severely depressed at the beginning of this study. By 18 months in, 10% of the
study group were not depressed any more.
Food and Nutrition: Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and cabbage are anti-
estrogenic and help block environmental xenoestrogens in the body. Xenoestrogens cause side effects like facial
hair in women and moobs (man-boobs) in men - not to mention making people hypothyroid along with making it very
difficult to lose weight. These xenoestrogens come mostly from plastics and not only cause women to store more
belly fat, but are also responsible for chronically low testosterone levels in men. Xenoestrogens are associated with
many different cancers. Cruciferous vegetables contain naturally occurring 3,3'-Diindolylmethane or DIM for short.
DIM blocks the bad estrogens that accumulate in the body. DIM is a double whammy against estrogen-driven
cancers as it is also a powerful immunostimulant.
Medical Madness: So, where will the next deadly flu outbreak come from? Odds are one out of five that it will
come from our own government within the next decade. How can that even happen? It is because the government
high-security germ labs are run by people experimenting with and developing deadly flu strains. And this is what
happens: A few months ago the USDA asked for some ordinary flu virus samples from the CDC and got way more
than they expected. The CDC actually accidently shipped a deadly flu strain called H5N1. The USDA recognized the
error (supposedly) before anyone was exposed but then failed to report the incident to the head honchos for six
weeks. An isolated incidence perhaps? Not according to the CDC which reports that high-containment laboratories
have errors and incidents on almost a weekly basis. Recently some anthrax was mishandled and put lives at risk.
We won’t have to wait for the enemy to weaponize some deadly virus or bacteria - our government will do that to us
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: The latest news out is that zinc is one of the most important
essential trace elements in human nutrition. The adult has up to three grams of zinc distributed in organs, tissues,
bones, fluids, and cells. About half of the world's population is at risk for zinc deficiency. Did you know that zinc
deficiency is found in both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease? Did you know that zinc is actually a natural
antidepressant? Zinc deficiency occurs in liver cirrhosis and other liver diseases. Adequate zinc levels are required
for the regulation of blood pressure. Even a mild zinc deficiency during pregnancy can increase maternal morbidity,
prolong gestation, cause inefficient labor, bleeding, and increased risk to the fetus. Some classic symptoms of zinc
deficiency are depression, lack of sense of smell, reduced immunity, delayed wound healing, slow hair growth,
infertility and white flecks under the nail beds. NEVER take zinc oxide orally.
Daily HealthTrivia: Mediterranean trivia: Greek women have a 50% lower incidence of breast cancer and
Greek men an 80% lower incidence of prostate cancer than Americans.
