Comment Of The Day: April 11, 2010
How To Kick Your Thyroid’s Ass:, Is Good Health Free?, And, The Chemical-Free-Life Challenge!” This installation of How to Kick Your Thyroid’s Ass, well; kicked ass. From drug company commercials, to taking responsibility for the lifestyle and foods choices we make, and so much more; Liz’s column delivered a lot of food for thought literally and figuratively.
In true Dear Thyroid fashion, everyone articulated their opinions without restraint (Gosh, how we love you for this and so much more).
Today’s comment of the day goes to a non-thyroid patient;
AWESOME; I accept the challenge!
A few remarks about the reading:
Many mainstream physicians would never be interested in thinking “outside the box” very true. It has been my experience medical school are interested in student that can be indoctrinated just looking at various friends who have applied to medical school. And by that I mean those that do not do their own research and basically study ONLY material given to them by professors and books. This is why MDs are usually more skeptical than PhDs – And no; Not all MDs are like this.
Good point about the drug advertisements. If doctors are trained to know what drugs to prescibe (and for good reason drugs are toxic/lethal) why in the world should we (laymen) be entrsuted with that information? A friend of mine took his little girl to 22 different doctors until one prescribed what he asked the previous 21. Those others said that it wasn’t necessary. He called them incompitent because they were not up-to-date on available medications.
Just how many diseases have a non-pharmaceutical cure that is deemed illegal due to FDA protocol? Lemons and scurvy, water and dehydration, etc. Here’s the technical aspect. These don’t cure the conditions. But the condition/illness will present itself in their absence.
Safe limits for cancer-causing, people-killing, obesity-producing, infertility-creating chemicals. Safe limits. impossible to predict! Those non-stick pans, for example; Those were sold on shelves without being tested. When they did get tested, bahm; thyroid issues. There are plenty of examples, this just happens to be a fairly recent one that you will appreciate.
As you said, it is impossible to get away from the mess this world is. Microwave signals for information, wifi, electromagnetic waves from power cables, and on and on. I’ve been asked, “why do you eat so healthy at home if according to you you are bombarded with junk anyways. My response, “I will not betray my body on purpose. There are a lot of things I cannot do anything about. But there are also a lot of things that I can. And by doing those things right, I have an better chance agains damage from what I don’t have control over…
Can you reject synthetics and chemicals in shampoo, toothpaste, food, cleaning products, laundry detergent, plastics, pots and pans, and unfiltered water? :: deodorants ; I admit that when I go out I do have to put deodorant on.. I sweat a ton. But when I get home, shower and put nothing. Weekends, when I don’t have to leave the house, nothing. But outside of that, biodegradable and organic soaps, cleaners, and toothpastes all over the house.
