I was treated for Hyperthyroid with the radioactive Iodine and ever since they started me on, first on PTU and then done the Radioactive Iodine theraphy, my face began to puff up and I do look sick. When I was sick with severe Hyperthyroid my face was very trim and fresh but unfortunatly the doctors did a terible job on controlling my hyperthyroidism. Now, whenever I play vollyball or job My face comes back to my normal looks but in an hours time it starts to puffup and I look really sick. I also realised that my stool would also turn pale yellowish. I have done a few parasite cleanse, 5 liver cleanses, I do zap and except for a few times I have been off nonveg. I am wondering if there is something that I am over looking or somethaing that I am not aware of because I am being very health concisious after being introdiced to the Curezone. Please lend you comments and if any familirity with the liver problems and puffy faces do help me.
Where exactly is your face swollen? Around the cheeks, jaw, eyes? Each site indicates a different kind of toxicity. Is there any acne, or color changes such as a bright red nose or spider veins or dark spots?
If you're still getting blood drawn regularly for tests, do you know the results of your last test for TSH, Creatinine, BUN, cholesterol, liver enzymes? (Always ask them to fax you lab test results! All the info is on the Web now.) Can you find out?
You didn't mention any kind of bowel management. Have you been doing colonic irrigations or deep enemas or P&B shakes? How about any lymphatic cleansing? (dry brushing, detox baths, massage, trampoline, yoga.)
5 Liver Flushes is good for the average person with no problems but a history of the standard american diet. For those of us with thyroid problems, we need a LOT more liver cleansing and support. :) Are you taking any liver-supporting herbs, including ones to increase bile flow?
How's your tongue - clean and healthy red or coated with white? any jagged cracks?
Yellow stools indicate lack of bile flow. Swollen eyes, especially bags under the eyes, is kidney. Swollen jaw is usually lymphatic system. Swollen face overall is either toxicity or healing crisis, hopefully part of the healing crisis! :)
I appirciate your response very much!
1.Swollen face-- by eyes bulge out, my cheeks are puffed up and I have a doubble chin. I weigh only 170lbs and loosing(in weight control). If I sleep on rightside my left side(face) is puffedup. On the whole my body is puffedup whereas I was trim and atheletic before though never had tough muscles. But all of a sudden the swelling subsides and I look normal but lack of sleep puts the swelling back on to my face and my body as a whole. Lack of sleep or excess also is revealed on my face resulting in puffiness in either of the case.
2. My TSH, T3,T4 are all normal- very very surprising after the 4th cleanse. My colesterol is high at 295 but it should be less now since I did two flushes. Liver enzimes were fine and that surprises me. I had Jaundice 15yrs ago and used Ayurvedic treatment in India which worked wonders within 24hrs. But always suffered from excess of gass(stomach bloating), many airiated drinks, icecream, nonveg, oily stuff causes a lot of discomfort.
The liver and colon is usually at the core of issues like these; however, I think that since the problem appears most often due to lack of sleep that part of the problem is PH balance. Lack of sleep is very acidifying to the body, and interferes with the entire cleansing regimen that the body goes thru each night.
You're supplementing with things that could help or hinder PH balance, should you take the wrong dosage.
Since you took Ayurvedic healing - woo hoo! - did you find out your Dosha? You sound like you're a Kapha and have a tendancy towards mucous/retaining water. Do you know waht your Dosha is and how to balance it? The gentlest thing to do for retaining water is to sip parsley tea.
You didn't say your creatinine or BUN readings - have you had those run, or done urine test? Is your urine generally clear, or foamy, or dark? I want to rule out kidneys as they are usually involved in water retention. Since the swelling is behind your eyes and not the bags of the eyes, chances are your kidneys are fine.
I know I am Hypothyroid patient because they used Radioactive Iodine thearphy to treat me while I was Hyperthyroid patient. Yes! I know that puffiness is most associated with Hyopo patients. I want to redeam myself from this condition. My TSH and T3, T4 are normal. I know they flactuate too. I was messedup by doctors for over two years while they tried to keep me on medication and overdosed me forcing me out of work for more than 2 yrs. I am feeling a lot better over the last 1 1/2yrs and since I started trying the methods of the honorable people who spend their private time to help people like me, I began trying their methods. I am ever grateful to you guys. I want to improve and hoping weather my conditions need to be addressed in a specific way so that I could make a fair recovery. Besides suffering for the puffiness, I suffer from sleep disorders, stomach bloating, frequent BM 3-5 a day, Chronic-Fatigue-Syndrome (especially when the stools are yellowish in color), body pains and muscles aches and sometimes shortness of breath etc.
I have not done the BURN test etc but have done the urine test which is normal too. Maybe I need to look at the advice given by shellycat very carefully and see what I could do about it. My jaundice was cured by some guy who runs a hardware store in the hills of westernghats Lonavala situatied between Pune and Bombay. It is funny because many people come there in the morning queing for the free medicine outside this store some yellowish and on verge of death. Three drops of this dose are put into the nostlils and within minuits yellowish bile comes out of the stomach through the mouth and by the end of the day a person would let the bile out through the mucous from the nose or by vomitting. So, there is really no Ayurvedic doctor involved but the medicine itself was is Ayurvedic is true because the formule was given by some person and is carried out as a free service. They have never parted with their formule.
I am very sorry to hear what how yout health has suffered at the hands of doctors. The results of what doctors do to people can be very devastating. I am glad to hear, though, that you are improving. The human body is an amazing thing, and given the right substances, it can heal itself. I, also, have hypothyroidism, so I have been looking for relief from fatigue and many other symptoms similar to yours. I have been trying a product called modifilan for about 3 months now, and I am slowly getting better. It is a seaweed extract, and you may be interested in what it could possibly do for you. For as long as I can remember, my body temperature has been below normal, and about 2 months after I started taking modifilan, my body temperature was normal. What a surprise. I am hoping the other symptoms go away also. The quality of my hair and skin has improved greatly, too. I know that taking care of your liver can help your thyroid, also. Julia Chang @sensiblehealth.com has been very helpful with explaining relationship of organs and glands to each other. Also, a couple of days ago, Toddles posted about an interesting article about dealing with the liver, and the author has a lot of information on her website. Her website is www.getalife.net.au.
I wish you the best.
