Thyroid Rescue Complex request

by Shannon

Hi and thanks so much for this very helpful website. I was really pleased to learn about cherry angiomas, which my husband and I have, as does my hypothyric mother.

I am just wondering if there is a recommended multi-"vitamin" supplement for those suffering from iodine deficiency-related symptoms; a formula that covers all the bases, so to speak?

I suspect I am iodine deficient, and have been researching the supportive minerals (such as selenium, magnesium, etc.), amino acids, and other compounds such as the zeolite or bentonite clays which aid in body detoxification.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a multi-formula for thyroid rescue? Is there one out there that I am not aware of? It's just that I don't do well with taking lots of different pills. I'm already trying to keep up with too many.

Not only that, but I would also like to treat the rest of my family (three children and husband) as I'm sure they are over-loaded on toxins and are low on iodine. If it could be formulated, a good Thyroid Rescue complex would include the following in ideal quantities.

KI/Iodine/Iodide (balanced)
Magnetic Clay
Vitamin C
Trace minerals
Vitamin B2
Apple cider vinegar
Supportive herbal extracts such as dandelion root, chicory, cilantro, etc.



You've done your homework that's for certain.

I wish I knew of an "all inclusive" vitamin that we could use. I, too, have a difficult time with all the pills.

I am writing a page about a new product I am experimenting with which removes the toxins from the body by using a holographic disc applied to the acupuncture meridians of the body.

I am also using a holographic pendant imbued with iodine and minerals to rebuild my thyroid.

I think that by using these discs, we can simplify our lives and reduce the amount of supplements we need.

I believe the toxic overload is the key. Once the body is purified, then it can begin to absorb the desperately needed nutrients.

I take liquid chlorophyll every morning in my morning cocktail. I believe this is more easily absorbed into the body in a natural and balanced combination. You might want to consider this as a "pill" substitute.

Let me know how this works for you.

Hypothyroidism - postpartum
by: balletmom

Its true that prolactin inhibits thyroid production. Its called postpartum hypothyroidism.

However, true postpartum hypothyroidism is temporary and you should not stop breastfeeding.

The benefits of breastfeeding far outweigh the p.h. I believe it is the body's way of postponing an immediate subsequent pregnancy.

This is helpful information, thank you. I will consider the chlorophyll, but what I have found (spirulina, chlorella, etc.) is on the expensive side and yet another kind supplement to add to the collection, plus I'm not big on smoothies. On the other hand, our family enjoys snacking on nori right out of the package, and I think we will stock up on that and see how that goes. It is tasty and full of iodine and supportive minerals. I know that it is important where it comes from, so I am looking at a brand on Amazon that is from a South Korean nature preserve. What are your thoughts on nori, and what other edible seaweeds (that are not outrageously expensive) do you know of and like to eat?

I should add that I am a breastfeeding mom, so I have to be careful of what supplements and how much I take. I suspect breastfeeding has contributed to iodine deficiency. I tried the skin patch test, and the color was absorbed completely within three hours.

Also, I have learned of other types of edible clays since finding bentonite, which do not clog the drain and are supposedly more effective. One such clay is called Pyrophyllite. I have found only one source. What are your opinions of this clay vs others? Here is a link I found which piqued my interest:

And how effective are clays compared to iodine supplementation? Iodine purges toxins, and clays do, too. But do clays also pull out beneficial minerals as well? Plus, since we are using highly chlorinated (and I presume flouridated) water, does the clay bind with these compounds in the water?

We do have a filter for the chlorine, but we are a typical American family and have a limited budget, so I am seeking cost-effective approaches to detox and iodine supplementation. Thanks so much for your thoughts!
