I have no notes from my early days; as my healing did not set in until I went over 50 mg daily, this was after half a year on "low" dosages (20-30 mg)
-and then I was to sick from the detox to take any notes.
I would like to recommend a diet change; (for those who hasnt already) - something has gone wrong the last 20-30 years. I now tell my cases that if in doubt, ask if the food was here a hundred years ago; and if not, dont buy it.
"As the incidence of women's diseases has increased, so have the number of books on the subject. Peruse the shelves of any bookstore and you will find dozens of works on women's health. Some merely present allopathic treatments for women's diseases. Others describe alternative therapies-like exercise, yoga, acupuncture, aromatherapy, art therapy, biofeedback, positive thinking, meditation, light therapy, massage, herbs, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, vitamins and Chinese medicine. All of these therapies have their place and may be helpful, but only when practiced in conjunction with a diet that supports the female reproductive system. Unfortunately, the dietary advice dished out in the various books on women's diseases is appalling-simplistic, fatuous and dangerous-consisting mostly of prescripts to consume lots of soy foods, whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables with warnings against animal foods, particularly dairy fats and red meats."
"The thyroid gland is intimately involved in the female reproductive cycle. As early as 1899, physicians were successfully treating menstrual and fertility problems with natural thyroid supplements.10 Dietary factors that contribute to healthy thyroid function include adequate protein and Iodine (thyroid hormone is composed of Iodine and tyrosine, a protein found in animal foods); trace elements such as iron, zinc and selenium (needed to prevent anemia and for key enzymes to make hormonal conversions); B vitamins, including B12; vitamin C; and, above all, adequate vitamin A from animal sources.11 Many substances in the modern diet depress thyroid function, including soy foods,12 fluoride13 and possibly even aspartame, the artificial sweetener found in nutrasweet.14 Pesticides and other pollutants may also depress thyroid function."
