    Good for you Kristy! We have to become our own advocate anymore. I think we’re all suffering from one ailment or another and need to keep ourselves educated. And eating the right foods and taking the right supplements are part of the equation. It’s just so hard to keep up with it all. Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge. We can learn so much form one another. {{Hugs!}} ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks, Karen. ๐Ÿ™‚

      And we sure do have to advocate for ourselves these days. I only trust one doctor, and that’s guy who takes care of my eyes. Well, there was another one who I saw for a couple of years after my accident, but I don’t have to go there anymore.

      I do my best to educate myself, mostly because I prefer not to take prescription medication if I can avoid it. I’m hoping this iodine protocol, as well as a natural, non-prescription thyroid supplement will be enough to heal my thyroid.

      We can learn from one another…and I’m grateful for everyone who has posted legitimate information that works. I’ll be more grateful after I get a nap so I don’t sound like a rambling drunk, lol. My dog and the dogs down the road were having a bark-off from shortly after I went to bed until I finally had to get up. I can hardly keep my eyes open…but if I don’t get a gluten-free turkey today, it will never thaw by Thursday morning. Hugs to you, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have to send that to my daughter! I mentioned before she has Hashimotos (autoimmune) and I have hypothyroidism. A great resource for me since she was dx at 4 years old (she will be 25 in May) is the American Thyroid Association at thyroid.org. Have you used their site yet? It is. Very informative.

      Hi, Korinna…
      Oh your poor daughter! I can’t imagine having to deal with thyroid issues from such a young age. I have probably been to the thyroid.org website at some point over the past two and a half years or so. I know in the beginning I spent countless hours researching. I’ve never actually stopped because the prescription medicine didn’t help much. I’ll have to check it out again, though the longer I’ve been off the wheat-filed selenium, the better I’m feeling. The iodine protocol may be working better than the Synthroid ever did. ๐Ÿ™‚
