    I just want to thank you so much already! Just reading through your story and these symptoms. I have been diagnosed and tried two different medications for hypothyroid and nothing has worked. This is such a good push in the right direction for me. It motivates me to actually find a new doctor that will work with me! I was already convinced that a lot of my physical issues were because of my thyroid problem but towards the end of this list I saw plantar fascitis, which I have been struggling with for about a year now. I had no idea that could be related! And also, the yeast problems as well.

    Thank you for reigniting my search for proper treatment so I can get my life back!

    I have just arrived home from being at the doctor who has diagnosed me with sinusitis and drew blood to send for tests and I am also going for an ultrasound tomorrow on my thyroid…I have just about every single one of these symptoms listed above and it brings me to tears knowing that after this daily struggle I have been fighting for years there is hope to be diagnosed and treated so I just hope & pray they pick this up in the test results and I can finally be treated and live a normal life, can’t imagine what that will feel like!?! Thank u for giving me hope and helping me realize I’m not just a useless human being who won’t ever be able to live a normal life because I have come so close to giving up on my dreams 🙂

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
