Why do they iodize salt?
If the body not have enough iodine to do its job the body can
cause the thyroid to work harder. This can result in an enlarged thyroid gland
(goiter) that usually becomes evident as a swollen neck. These were very common
in the Midwest region as settlers moved westward.
Melting glaciers had washed iodine and other minerals out of the soil and there
was no source of fresh sea food. By the early 1900's iodine
deficiency was so common in the US and Canadian midwest it became known as the goiter belt. The addition of iodine to table salt
improved public health. Now they tell us to limit our salt intake but they
forgot to tell us to take iodine.
a mineral therefore the body cannot manufacture it. Iodine must come from the
diet. Sea food and sea vegetables are
good sources. Most of the world’s iodine is found in the ocean, where it is
concentrated by sea life, especially seaweed. You will find very little in
other foods, unless it is added during processing as it is with iodized salt. Another good way to add iodine to your diet is to use a few drops of liquid Nascent Iodine in a glass of water first thing in the morning. This form of consumable Iodine is useful for energy release.
deficiency during pregnancy is serious for both the mother and child. The ovaries have the second largest concentration of iodine in the body. Progesterone hormone is released by the ovaries. Proper progesterone levels are needed to carry a baby to term Low iodine carries
a risk of high blood pressure during pregnancy for the mother. Mental
retardation is a possibility for the baby because iodine plays an important
role in development of the central nervous system.
needed to prevent fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, eye disease,
diabetes, and heart disease and stroke. Iodine is also needed in radiation
emergencies to protect the thyroid gland against radioactive iodides.
developed an at home test for thyroid function. Shake down a basal
thermometer and place it at your bedside. The first thing in the morning put it
in your armpit and rest for ten minutes. Record it for 4 days. If your thyroid is working properly your temperature should be 98 or above. Parents should take their child’s
temperature when they are well. My children ran a standard temp of 97.2.. If
they ran a temp over 99 I knew they were ill. Menstruating women should do this on the four
days after their period starts.
temperature runs below 98 degrees you may need to supplement your nutrition or
contact your doctor for a thyroid test. You will want to be checked for T3, T4, Free T3, Free T4, TSH
and possibly thyroid antibodies. Two
of Dr. Barnes many
and use of thyroid function blood tests left many patients with clinical
symptoms of hypothyroidism undiagnosed and untreated.
Patients taking thyroid
replacement therapy have much better improvement of symptoms with natural
desiccated thyroid hormone(Armour) rather than synthetic thyroid hormones.
If you wish to find a doctor who uses natural thyroid therapy please contact me.
Before the 1970s we got iodine in our breads, 1mg daily. All of your blood goes through your thyroid gland every 17 seconds, aka, Dr. Jarvis, Folk Medicine of Vermont published 1950. Iodine kills pathogens in the blood (hiv, hepatitis, pneumonia,etc.)
What we need to do is supplement breads with iodine again (also magnesium and potassium), just like the good old days before our health epidemic started.
I did iodine fulfillment therapy for low thyroid and my son did it to detox mercury and get rid of his asperger’s and tourettes. It also treats cancer better than chemo. The cost was $20 for a bottle of Lugol’s iodine. Sherry

This month's Essential Oil
The benefits of peppermint oil include its ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms, as well as for pain relief due to the presence of menthol. It is considered one of oldest medicines due to it's considerable history. The many health benefits of peppermint and peppermint oil have been studied and proved in scientific tests. Studies have shown that peppermint oil caps are useful in treating IBS symptoms. Because the strong aromatic oils can cause heartburn be sure confirm the tablets are 'enteric coated'. This means that they have a special coating that allows them to reach the intestines before they dissolve, rather than breaking down in the stomach where they do less good.
Peppermint essential oil has been researched and shown to reduce appetite and curb cravings — a key component to weight loss when uncontrollable cravings can derail even the most determined individual. In a recent study by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush at the Wheeling Jesuit University of West Virginia, it was discovered that individuals who inhaled peppermint oil over 2 week period consumed on average 3,000 less calories per week than those who didn’t use the peppermint. Not only that, the peppermint users reported a feeling of being satiated when inhaling the peppermint and didn’t feel deprived by their reduced caloric intake!
How can you use peppermint to support weight loss?
- Inhale therapeutic-quality peppermint oil before a meal — you’ll automatically feel more full, so you won’t eat as much!
- Inhale peppermint oil before exercise to increase your stamina.
- Add peppermint oil to your water. In a glass pitcher, add 4-5 drops of peppermint to 2 quarts of pure water. You may add 1 drop to a glass of water. This is very refreshing, and also good for digestion .http://essentialsurvival.org/healthy-weight-loss/

Should you take PQQ with your CoQ10?
is a potent
antioxidant. It is a competition for resveratrol and quercetin as the
most healthful nutraceutical of the three. These are the suggested
benefits of PQQ do to it's ability to optimize mitochondrial function.
- An overall improvement in energy levels
- Improved cognitive function and memory
- Reduction in mitochondrial degradation
- Increased skin elasticity
- Enhanced nerve growth
has similar benefits but it is fat soluble meaning there must be good
lipids present for it to metabolize properly. PQQ is a water-soluble
compound so it is easier to metabolize but also easier to flush it from
the body. The extra benefit of
PQQ is that it has been shown to stimulate the growth of fresh mitochondria! Mitochondrial dysfunction is noted as a key marker of aging.
March Essential Oil
Sandalwood: This was used in ancient times to assist in meditation. It has a chemistry that is 90% Sesquiterpenes, the highest of all the oils. Some researchers believe the gold given to the Christ child was sandalwood oil. It has a gold color and was valued as gold. Sesquiterpenes have been found to deprogram misinformation in the body and carry oxygen to the cellular level. It can stimulate the release of melatonin necessary for a good sleep cycle. More properties attributed to sesquiterpenes are:
- soothing to inflamed tissue
- can produce profound effects on emotions and hormonal balance
- work on the liver
- are a gland stimulant
- increase oxygen around the pineal and pituitary gland
- have the ability to go beyond the Blood Brain Barrier (meaning they can cross the blood brain barrier increasing the oxygen to the brain)
