Kat it appears that your Doctors have given up in locating the source of your problem. Their response is to KILL the Thyroid and that is exactly what the radioactive iodine is gonna do. I have a friend who has gone through this proceedure and now hes going crazy because he is wasting away with an out of control metabolism and a dead thyroid.
MH is suggesting that you change your life style and allow the body to do what it knows best..which is to heal. Without wanting to change you have to contend with a sick body and the problems which result and it shows you have no control over your life and you have given that control to your doctors.
The purpose of his OJ diet is to allow the body to begin much needed repairs without the distraction of food which boggs down, backs up and overwhelms the very system which is trying to save you. But first you must work on your elimination systems in order to pave the way to removing the backed up toxins in your system which is probably the cause of your current problems.
If you wish to heal yourself you must get out of MD jail (which is to take a majic pill to make the problem go away) and take control of your life. This takes place first in your mind, then in your body. The fact that you are taking the initiative to post on this forum and ask questions is a good first step.
The next step is to learn what you must do to correct your whole self. This is called taking a truthful approch to reversing all of the hypnosis done to you over the years. Learning how we have been fooled into thinking that bad foods and bad habits are best for us. Once your mind accepts the fact that it lives in a hynotically addicted world it will begin the realization and begin to KNOW what it must do. This is the start of the real healing process. The rest is to understand what must be done and then start the follow through necessary for repair.
The next step is by beginning the physical transformation and when that begins the fog you have been living in will dissapate as you find you now have a new found control over your own well being. This is what the whole system you are dealing with is all about, they want control, you are just the slave and in keeping you inline, in the system, you are provided with everything in a sweetened, comfortable environment that is hard to turn away because it is too easy. And yes there is a price and yes we have been tricked into thinking this is the only way and it is not!
If you wish to take control of your life you must learn to live it. It is not easy because to enjoy the fruits of life they must be first earned and learned. And once learned is to never forget and to never turn back knowing that an early death is the end result.
Life is simple and you really have two choices facing you at any moment in your precious life. You can say yes and make much needed changes or you can say no and continue on in your hypnotized state.
So what will it be? The RED pill or the BLUE one..its your choice.
