I have had mercury poisoning for some years now due to 14 mercury fillings for most of my life, 3 of which I swallowed over the past 17 years. The leaking mercury has affected my hormonal balance and my thyroid. Five years ago, I began experiencing a reaction to Electromagnetic Frequencies(emf's) which would induce severe fatigue, sometimes lasting for up to 5 weeks where I couldn't even get out of bed. I couldn't shower or dress myself and had to be taken care of. It was accompanied by massive pain and inflammation which was diagnosed as severe Fibromyalgia. Last year I began a natural progesterone cream which has controlled the Fibromyalgia but the fatigue still plagued me. I was unable to go to the city because of large frequencies there and even shopping centres caused me problems. I began grounding every day for 45 minutes walking barefoot on the earth which helped reduce inflammation but never cured the fatigue. A few months ago, I found breast lumps. I refused a mammogram as they cause cancer and are not reliable, and I opted for the ultrasound. The lumps were cysts. The Fibromyalgia had caused blocked lymph nodes and I suffered severely from Fibrocystic breast disorder. The doctor did full bloods and it showed that my Thyroid was underactive. I told him I'd always been overactive so he sent me for an ultrasound on my Thyroid and checked my anti-bodies. It was inflamed and the anti-bodies were up to 1000 (supposed to be 5). He told me I had auto-immune Thyroid Disease and it was irreversible. He sent me to a specialist. The specialist confirmed the test results but I insisted on a follow up blood test as I had been using Iodine and Organic Coconut Oil at 3 tablespoons a day. This specialist rubbished the Iodine and told me not to take it as it had been proven to shut the Thyroid down. He gave me the script for Thyroxine and agreed to another blood test. He said it was pointless because once you have Hashimotos, it is not reversible. One week later he rang me with the results obviously forgetting who I was. He said "I have your results and it appears you are only borderline and on the good side, but that's ok, you just need to increase your intake of Thyroixine." I told him "I'm not taking your medication, I'm using Iodine and Coconut Oil." He stammered and stuttered for around 10 seconds, obviously stunned to hear that these natural remedies had worked to reverse something he believed was irreversible. Then he said "oh well it doesn't matter anyway as you're only borderline and on the good side of that." I continue to use Iodine as a patch on my feet every day, 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil in my smoothies, 200mcg of Selenium and I am also going to add Taurine to help completely restore my Thyroid health. I take 500mgs of vitamin B5 for my adrenals as you should always assist your kidneys when you work with the Thyroid. I use Bentonite clay, Zeolite and R-Alpha Lipoic Acid for mercury removal as well. I had the mercury removed from my teeth 2012. My energy has picked up immensely since I began the Iodine and although I am still reacting to emf's, this has greatly reduced and I am recovering much quicker. No more time incapacitated in bed. I do still limit my exposure and ground every day. I still get Fibrocystic Breast Disorder but not to the same extent I was before Iodine. I understand it can take up to 2 years using Iodine to heal scar tissue caused from this disorder. I strongly recommend Iodine to everyone. It cures so many ailments. I put patches on everyone whose willing to try it and all but one person has soaked it into their body within 10 hours. My daughter did a 12 hour shift the other day and I put Iodine on her feet before work to give her energy as she suffers from fatigue (always on her iPhone). When I picked her up 12 hours later, she said she was pumped and full of energy. Iodine is a Godsend. We should all be using it.
