Unknown to research and science, including all medical communities, your thyroid catalogues all the markers of homeostasis in your body as the data center. In Thyroid Healing I share that your thyroid miraculously records what balance looks, feels, and acts like for you individually. Messages from every organ and every gland get delivered to the thyroid—when necessary, as complaints. Like a human resources department in a company, your thyroid fields these reports, collecting and recording data about what’s functioning well in your body, what’s not functioning, what’s toxic, and what’s not toxic.
Then, day in and day out, your thyroid uses its memory of homeostasis to send out radiolike frequencies (not yet detected or measured by medical science or research) that delegate tasks and responsibilities throughout the body to keep everything in balance. Your thyroid, which is self-powered and self-sufficient, uses its intelligence about your personal homeostasis to continuously re-create it for you, so that when one body system is overtaxed or compromised, another kicks in to compensate. As the thyroid delivers different frequencies to different parts of the body as needed, it can even provide energy to them—energy that is not yet weighed or measured by research and science. Isn’t that incredible? As you can see, the thyroid is about far more than metabolism and the known T4, T3, and TSH hormones.
Why Two Thyroids Are Better Than One
The below information is an excerpt from the book Medical Medium Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr, which is now available to order.
The thyroid’s radio-like frequencies don’t stop at communicating with the rest of the body. These frequencies also reach out to others’ thyroids, which means that a healthy thyroid has the ability to support an ailing one simply by proximity.
Here’s how it works: If someone with an ailing thyroid (such as is the case with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and more) stands next to someone with a better-functioning thyroid, the two thyroids will communicate with each other through their radio-like frequencies, with the ailing thyroid sending out a request for help. When the healthier thyroid detects this signal, it will first send a preliminary message to prime the compromised thyroid to receive aid. Once the thyroid in need has prepared itself, the helper thyroid will send a frequency that improves the ability of the other thyroid’s personalized immune system (the lymphocytes in that area) to protect the gland and also assists the thyroid in receiving the lymphocytes’ help, at the same time strengthening the thyroid itself. Even if you’re missing your thyroid, it can receive help in this way—as I share in Thyroid Healing, your thyroid still has a presence no matter what.
The frequencies that the thyroid emits are extremely powerful; they’re similar to the messages that whales and dolphins use to communicate in the ocean. The thyroid’s frequencies are so strong that if one person is developing thyroid cancer, another person’s thyroid can send it messages to slow down and try to stop that cancer’s development.
It takes close contact for two thyroids to communicate—the two people must be at most an arm’s length apart. A hug is a great way for a thyroid to get or give help, though not the only way. As long as another person is within arm’s reach, your thyroids’ frequencies can get to each other. This thyroid-to-thyroid support will happen even if you don’t love or even like one another. You could be sitting next to your boss in a meeting, a boss who’s insulted you more times than you can count, and if her thyroid is in need and yours is doing better, yours will help hers—or vice versa.
You’ve probably experienced this thyroid communication phenomenon without knowing what it was. It’s how unexplained feelings can come over you when you’re in the presence of another person. It may be someone whose personality puts you off, and yet standing side-by-side in the break room at work, a warm, comfortable, at-ease feeling will wash over you, leading you to want to be around him. People don’t realize in this situation that the feelings come either because your thyroid is offering help or receiving it.

Dreams are the ultimate mystery—they can’t be weighed or measured. What are dreams telling us? we ask ourselves from the time we’re children. What do they mean?
Especially, we question the bad dreams. What’s behind the nightmares, the anger dreams, the frustration dreams, the stress dreams, the sweat dreams, the wake-in-the-night-screaming dreams? How can we make them go away? Are they punishment? Can’t we have some more blissed-out dreams of tropical island vacations instead?
Once you understand what’s behind those bad dreams, you won’t want them to go anywhere. “Bad” dreams are the soul’s way of healing. When we’re awake, we’re not supposed to be breaking down the walls of our emotional hurt. When we are wounded, a physical component in the brain puts up a barrier to prevent us from constantly processing and reprocessing the pain, so that we can be productive and move forward during our waking hours. They’re not walls of denial; they’re walls of divine protection. While some conscious processing is healthy and necessary, it’s not meant to haunt us.
The time to process that pain is in our sleep. When we’re not conscious, the emotional walls come down so the soul can do its cleanup and repair work. This means that all sorts of difficult emotions get stirred up, and they work themselves out through our dreams. If this didn’t happen, frustration, anger, fear, betrayal, guilt, and humiliation would build up and up and up within us until they overpowered the strength of the walls holding them in place and took over our waking lives. Instead, our dreams release them. This nightly housecleaning—aided by the Angel of Sleep, the Angel of Dreams, and the Unknown Angels—helps us face what’s going on in life without becoming scarred by it.
Sometimes dreams have staying power. A dream can stick to you all day or even longer—even years. These dreams can be confusing. We often dream of family and other loved ones, for example, with a swirl of emotions. Even if everything is going fine in a waking relationship, a dream can bring a feeling of hurt or uneasiness. Or if it’s a relationship where’s there’s been some challenge or distance, dreams can bring up the old wounds, making us contemplate what went wrong years ago to cause the pain. We may wake from a dream feeling like we did something wrong, or like we weren’t heard or perceived right. As we painfully try to decode what it all means, we can be left feeling empty.
All of this is healthy. I’ve heard from people who told me that a bad dream made them pick up the phone and call a family member or friend they hadn’t talked to in years, starting a process of great healing. Any empty feeling is because toxic wounds and emotions left us (or started to leave us) in our sleep, reducing our storage bank of hurt. Even though we think it’s the opposite, bad dreams rejuvenate us. They remind us that there are people, places, and things in our lives that may need some attention so we can move on. Bad dreams don’t close doors; they open doors. They create new beginnings. Even if you’re not aware of what that new beginning is, it’s happening.
Far down the road, you may have the perspective to see what opportunity a bad dream led to in your life. We wish each other “sweet dreams,” when really, we should wish each other “healing dreams.” To advance the soul, mend the heart, and empty yourself of harmful emotions, you don’t want every dream to be perfect and tranquil and flowery. You don’t want your dream life to be an all-out wonderland. You want your dreams to have some hardship in them, because you want the good stuff to be happening when you’re awake. If our dream lives were total fantasy, sleeping would be the only thing we’d want to do.
Now, there are sinister people in the world. They have existed throughout history. These coldhearted people can go through life without one nightmare. That’s an indication of how cut off they are from processing negative experiences like pain and suffering. Since they don’t deal with their pain while they sleep, they hold on to it in their waking lives, and they want to inflict it on others.
On the flip side, you can have the most compassionate, generous, loving person who can’t go a night without dreaming something unpleasant. Believe it or not, this is the healthier process. Because this person is so tuned in, she’s a witness to others’ struggles. She experiences the range of human suffering, and so when she checks out for the night, her brain needs to protect her from becoming haunted by it in her waking life. She may dream of school-yard bullies and natural disasters and war zones, and it’s all for her benefit—so that rather than waking up bitter that she has to leave some fantastical dream and face a harsh world instead, she can wake up relieved to leave those tough dreams behind, and ready to continue her sacred work of compassion.
Let me be clear that having good dreams does not make you a bad person. Of course not. It’s all about balance. In addition to those memorable “bad” dreams, we’re meant to have beautiful dreams, as well. The angels sometimes grant us dreams of transcendence and hope. Sometimes our dreams are premonitions or messages or creative inspiration. Some nights, we have mild bad dreams in which we process emotions, though we’re spared from remembering what happened come morning. Other times, we get to visit with a deceased loved one in our dreams.
Just remember to welcome, too, the dreams that challenge you—they are doing you a great service as your body heals during slumber. They are not a punishment or judgment. They are helping you become your best self.

Who doesn’t love pancakes—especially when they are packed with only the very best ingredients? These delicious pancakes featured in my book Thyroid Healing may well become a weekend staple for you to enjoy with family and friends.
Thyroid Healing is like nothing you have read or heard, and it will bring you true comprehension of the undiscovered inner mechanics of your thyroid for the first time ever. If you’ve struggled with any chronic health issue, you’re not alone—you are one among millions confronting the mysterious symptoms that medical communities have begun to connect with thyroid illness. Like so many, you want the greater truth about the thyroid.
We’ve already waited 100-plus years for real insights from medical communities into thyroid problems, and they haven’t come. Even the most recent expert opinions don’t yet have a handle on what’s really behind your suffering. Hashimoto’s is not the body attacking itself. There’s more to thyroid cancer than we’re being told. You’re not hopeless if you don’t have a thyroid anymore. Thyroid illness should not be blamed on your genes. Today’s thyroid diagnoses do not explain your years of suffering with mystery symptoms.
You shouldn’t have to wait another 10, 20, 30, or more years for scientific research to find the real answers. If you’re stuck in bed, dragging through your days, or feeling lost about your health, you shouldn’t have to go through one more day of it, let alone another decade. You shouldn’t have to watch your children go through it, either. The answers are now here for you in Thyroid Healing.
Wild Blueberry Banana Pancakes
The star ingredients of these delicious pancakes are the wild blueberries, banana, raw honey, and maple syrup. Each ingredient not only tastes wonderful but also offers incredible healing properties. Let's take a look at them.
Wild blueberries help restore the central nervous system and flush viral neurotoxins out of the liver. They contain exceptionally powerful antioxidants that help repair your thyroid’s tissue and reduce the growth of nodules. They also help remove toxic heavy metals from the brain and liver. Ultimately, this all means that wild blueberries stop a shrinking brain and a shrinking thyroid. Not to be confused with their larger, cultivated cousins, wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores.
Bananas provide amino acids and the right kind of potassium to rebuild neurotransmitters after they’ve been burnt out by viral neurotoxins. They're also powerful for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Bananas are a wonderful calcium source because the trees grow in calcium-rich soil and they’re also a great tool for hypoglycemia, as they help balance blood sugar. Don’t worry about the fad that says bananas have too much sugar. Their fruit sugar is actually critical brain food, plus it’s bonded to the amino acids and minerals that give bananas their life-changing nutrition.
Raw honey is the best replenishing fuel there is to feed and revitalize the thyroid. The glucose and other nutrients in raw honey practically get mainlined into the thyroid to feed the gland. Medical science doesn’t yet have its finger on the pulse of the symbiotic relationship between honey and the thyroid. Honey is an antiviral, too, that helps fight viruses with its zinc content.
Maple syrup holds dozens of trace minerals that fortify the brain and the rest of the nervous system, protecting them from oxidation due to heavy metal damage and viral neurotoxins. Maple syrup helps to build glycogen storage banks in the liver and brain to help balance blood sugar, which keeps the adrenals strong and stable so they can support the thyroid.

When making this recipe, it's important to note that this batter behaves a little differently than traditional pancake batter, so make sure to follow the directions closely. If you run into trouble using a skillet, try baking them instead for great results.
2 ripe bananas
4 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup water
2 cups almond flour
¼ cup potato starch
1 cup wild blueberries
1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
½ cup maple syrup
1. For the batter, blend the bananas, honey, baking powder, and sea salt together with the water until smooth. Add the almond flour and potato starch and continue to blend until a thick, even batter forms.
2. To cook on the skillet: Heat ½ teaspoon of coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the batter into the skillet by heaping tablespoons of it to create small pancakes. If needed, use the back of the spoon to smooth the batter evenly into a circle. Cook the pancakes for 2½ to 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 4 minutes on the other side until cooked through. Because of the banana, the inside of the pancake will remain moist even when they are done.
3. To bake in the oven: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and lightly grease the parchment paper with coconut oil. Spoon the batter onto the baking trays in 3-inch circles. If needed, use the back of a spoon to smooth the batter evenly. Bake the pancakes in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges turn golden, then flip and bake for 2 minutes more.
4. For the wild blueberry maple syrup, combine ½ cup of maple syrup and 1 cup of wild blueberries in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the syrup for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently until it is hot and well combined.
5. Stack the pancakes on a plate and serve topped with wild blueberry maple syrup.
* This batter, while completely delicious, does not behave exactly like traditional pancake batter. It will be slightly thicker, which means you may need to use a spoon to smooth it into shape.
* Additionally, the pancakes need to be flipped before they seem ready. The batter should hold together well, though, so slip the spatula underneath quickly and give them a good flip.

If you suffer with insomnia or sleep issues, you’ll know how debilitating it can be. Poor sleep over and over again can make you feel like you’re going to mentally and physically breakdown. You may even question how you will get through each day. I truly understand how hard it is to live with sleep issues. Even if you wouldn’t list insomnia or sleep disturbance as one of your chronic issues, learning how to harness sleep so it can be the most healing it can be is a critical part of looking after your health now and in the future. Thankfully, there are answers for you. You can heal and sleep soundly again.
If you look to conventional medicine with questions about your insomnia or other sleep issues, you may be told a number of possible reasons for why you can’t sleep. And some of them may carry some truth. Your doctor or health practitioner may say the cause of your sleep problems are grief, anger, anxiety, depression, worry, restless legs, or chronic pain or you may be told you have sleep apnea. All of these things can be a part of the challenges you are having. But there’s much more to understand. For example, what is truly the reason behind your restless legs, depression, anxiety, and aches and pains.
In the following article I will explain the truth behind chronic and mysterious sleep conditions. In my book Thyroid Healing, I have an entire section dedicated to this important topic because it’s so critical you and your loved ones get the answers and support you need so you can get the deep, healing sleep you deserve.
Mystery Sleep Conditions
When your anxiety and depression are not connected to your circumstances, it can be frustrating not to know or understand their causes. In addition, when you are having sleep issues and you cannot connect it to anything at all, it can be even more disheartening. Lying awake with no answers can create even more anxiety and make falling or staying asleep all the more elusive. At times, someone who is having sleep issues will get an answer from an expert, which will temporarily relieve the person from the confusion. Perhaps that person will even be able to sleep for a week or more because their sleep challenges feel like less of a riddle. However, many times the answers we get from conventional medicine and alternative health communities are not the right answers, and therefore don’t offer a true solution for healing. In many cases, the misinformation we may receive from well-meaning health practitioners may actually lead us further astray or result in even more struggle and confusion. The inability to sleep is still one of the greatest mysteries to modern medicine today.
For example, many people with sleep problems are told that they are having trouble with their thyroid, and that is what is keeping them awake. The truth is that a thyroid problem is not going to keep you from sleeping. But you can lose sleep if you’re worried about having a thyroid problem. Many people lose sleep when they first get their diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, or hyperthyroidism because they’re told their body is attacking its own thyroid. But this is a great mistake by medical communities. Your body never attacks itself. It loves you unconditionally and is always working for you. I address this mistaken theory in detail in Thyroid Healing. Someone also may not sleep if they’re worried about having thyroid surgery. But your thyroid itself is never going to create insomnia. It’s not possible. Unfortunately, it is very common for people to be told their sleep disorder is because of their thyroid. This new, recent blame game on the thyroid is so prevalent right now that I address it extensively in Thyroid Healing, along with the true causes of insomnia and other sleep disorders. My goal is to cut through the misinformation and confusion which is preventing people from having the health and sleep they desire and bring the real truth to you. You deserve to know what’s really happening in your body.
Different Kinds of Sleep Disorders
It is critical to understand our sleep disorders and exactly what is happening in the body so we can begin to take steps toward healing. We have to locate the target before we can go after it. It’s almost impossible to effectively and fully heal a symptom or condition without understanding it. Even if you have healed a symptom or condition before without knowing it’s true cause, it’s possible it could come back later in life or the unknown root cause could be creating another symptom that you are unaware is actually related. This is why the answers to our health problems we receive from science and research are so lacking—they don’t know the true causes of chronic mystery illnesses like insomnia and other sleep disorders in most cases, so how could they know the correct treatment?
Everyone experiences sleep problems in vastly different ways. Read the following descriptions and take note if one or more of them apply to you.
1. You cannot fall asleep at first, then eventually you fall asleep after several hours. When you wake up in the morning, you do not feel well rested because you could not fall asleep right away.
2. You fall asleep right away, but you wake up in the very early morning unable to fall back asleep before it is time to get up. You get a racing mind as the sun starts to rise and anxiety because you are unable to fall asleep.
3. You initially fall asleep easily, but then you wake up in the middle of the night unable to fall back to sleep until the early morning when you fall asleep again.
4. You are in and out of a miserable sleep all night long because you never fall into a solid restful state. You keep getting the frequent urge to urinate, which gets you out of bed over and over.
5. You cannot sleep the entire night, and when morning comes, you feel completely exhausted and crash at various times throughout the day. You may or may not attempt a quick nap here and there. Then when it is time for bed, the whole thing starts over again.
6. All throughout the day you are exhausted and you struggle with all your tasks, and all you can think about is the next chance you get to lie down and close your eyes. All you want to do is go to bed. When nighttime hits, you are suddenly awake and it is difficult to wind down enough to get to sleep on time.
7. You are able to fall asleep and stay asleep for a full night, only you wake up feeling like you need another eight hours. Maybe your loved ones report that you snore or you have very shallow breathing throughout the night; they say you woke yourself up snoring, which makes you come to understand that your sleep is broken all night.
8. Just as you sink into deep sleep, a jerk happens. Either your arm, neck, head, or leg jerks and it wakes you up again. Sometimes you can bypass it and you can fall asleep. Or you wake up in the middle of the night to urinate and then you go back to bed and can’t fall asleep because the jerking occurs once again.
9. You are tired and ready to go to sleep, except there is a weird buzzing sound or another symptom keeping you awake. This can be either tinnitus, restless leg syndrome, itchy skin problems, or aches and pains.
The Potential Causes of Sleep Disorders
While many experts today will lump most of these sleep disorders under thyroid problems, this is a trendy trap that you need to be aware of so you don’t fall prey to it and start addressing an issue that isn’t even the cause. Sleep issues have nothing to do with the thyroid. Below I will explain the true reasons for insomnia and other sleep issues that medical science and research are unaware of. No two causes of sleep problems are the same, just as no two sleep disorders themselves are the same. While people’s sleep issues may be very similar to each other, they will never be identical. Keep this in mind as you learn about your own insomnia or other sleep challenges.
One possible cause stems from a liver that’s overheated, stagnant, or sluggish from toxins and a diet too high in fat or processed foods. The liver could also be inflamed because it is trying to fight one or more pathogens (viruses and bacteria) that have nested in the liver for many years, even decades, and they are releasing neurotoxins and dermatoxins. Research and science have not yet discovered that pathogens releasing these toxins are the cause of many symptoms and illnesses.
When you go to sleep for the night, your liver shuts down operation and runs on autopilot. By around three or four in the morning (it’s different for everyone), your liver starts to wake up again and once more begins to process poisons, viruses, and debris (such as dead cells, including dead red blood cells.). If you have a sluggish liver, then as the liver tries to do its job at this time, it goes into subtle spasm. Most of the time, it’s not anything you can feel, but for some people it’s enough to wake them up. This accounts for those nights when you fall asleep normally, then suddenly you’re up again in the early morning hours, and after a certain period of time, you’re able to nod off again. This can also explain those miserable nights of sleep where you drift in and out the whole time.
Sleep issues caused by something going on in the liver tend to be present in someone dealing with a thyroid issue, not because the thyroid is causing the problem but because thyroid issues are also caused by EBV. This is something I discuss at length in my book, Thyroid Healing.
Viral issues are one of the major causes of trouble with sleep. The Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, cytomegalovirus, HHV-6, and even some bacteria can poison our systems and keep us up at night. That’s because viruses such as Epstein-Barr excrete neurotoxins, which can create the issues of not being able to fall asleep for hours, or waking in the middle of the night and not being able to fall back asleep. Viral-caused insomnia is often mistaken for a thyroid issue, because, as I said, it’s common to experience insomnia and thyroid trouble side by side. It’s not because an under or overactive thyroid causes sleep issues, despite what you may hear from other sources.
MSG and Toxic Heavy Metals in the Brain
If someone has MSG or toxic heavy metal deposits speckled throughout the brain, which is extremely common, these alone can keep a person from getting quality sleep. Mercury deposits are what cause OCD, Tourette’s, anxiety, depression, and much more, which, when coupled with a pathogen like Epstein-Barr Virus, can only make things worse because the virus is feeding off of the mercury and releasing more poisons, such as neurotoxins. Medical communities are unaware of just how prolific this virus is and the hundreds of symptoms and conditions it causes. I share the reasons why research and science have missed just how much EBV is responsible for in Thyroid Healing. They are also unaware that viruses feed off toxins like mercury, which allows them to strengthen and thrive and create further issues.
Digestive Tract Issues
Some people have digestive sensitivities, which are actually connected to the nervous system because nerves are attached to every part of the colon. As food moves through the intestines, it hits those sensitive nerves throughout the night. Sometimes it is so subtle it is barely noticeable but it can be enough to disrupt your sleep. Even if there is no pain or gas in your gut, these digestive tract sensitivities may be related to your sleep disorder and you simply are not aware of it.
Sleep apnea can occur if you have a sinus problem or a post nasal drip. It can also occur if you are overweight and lying down, which may put pressure on the chest and throat, prevents proper breathing from taking place during sleep. The third kind of sleep apnea is a mystery to modern medicine. In this case, it is a neurological sleep apnea where the brain is sending out incorrect messages to the vagus and phrenic nerves using electrical impulses and neurotransmitters that are being weakened or interrupted by toxic heavy metals or viral neurotoxins.
Another potential cause for sleep issues occurs because of a high stress lifestyle that pumps adrenaline into your bloodstream all day. Adrenaline keeps you up until very late and then by the time you wake up in the morning you are exhausted.
These are just some of the reasons why your sleep may be suffering. Other possible causes I address in detail in Thyroid Healing include anxiety, which is not as self-explanatory as you may think, emotional wounds, and other neurological issues.
Your Very Own Sleep Account
There is a common belief floating around that once you miss an hour of sleep, that sleep is gone and you can never make it up. You can never get it back. This is false. The truth is that we have a divine sleep account that is owed to us from the minute we are born. Every time you miss a minute, hour, day, or week of sleep, that time is automatically put into your sleep account to save for a later date. All is not lost. Those three hours of sleep you lost the night before are not gone forever. They are waiting for you in your very own sleep account, controlled and maintained by the Angels, and you will get them back some day. It is a misguided belief that you cannot catch up on sleep or gain your sleep back. Once you’re able to target your sleep issue and begin to heal by restoring your liver, detoxing the MSG and heavy metals, mending your digestive tract, healing your adrenals, or eliminating EBV, get ready. Because your sleep account is waiting for you and you are going to enjoy plenty of restorative, healing sleep. It’s your divine right and one of the unknown universal laws.
Foods for Sleep
There is so much we can do to heal viruses, work on our digestive and liver problems, and detox from heavy metals, MSG, and other toxins that could be contributing to your sleep issues. I go into further depth on what’s behind your sleep issues, how you can heal from them, why bad dreams are good, which foods and supplements are the most helpful for healing, and so much more in Thyroid Healing.
The Sacred Sleep Window
Sleep is so important for healing and yet it can be impossible to sleep when you have any of these issues. It can seem like a catch 22. That’s why it’s so critical to know about the Sacred Sleep Window. Between 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. your body does most of its healing. If you are able to sleep during that period, your body is healing at an accelerated rate. Even if you only catch 10 minutes, those 10 minutes will be potent. The restoration your body performs in that snippet of time will power you through on your path to healing. If you’re not able to sleep during this window, even lying down with your eyes closed will allow your body to continue healing. This is because even if you are still conscious, part of your brain is asleep. If you work night shifts or just have a lot of difficulty lying down in this window, you can nap or lie down with your eyes closed between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This four hour daytime window is the equivalent of the 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. for healing.
Angel of Sleep
The Angel of Sleep is always there for you if you need her. Whenever you’re seeking guidance or comfort, speak her name aloud and ask for her help. She’ll aid you in your path to a better night’s sleep, whether because of a health issue or an emotional trial. The Angel of Sleep will watch over you as you travel to the land of the subconscious.
I know how frustrating and debilitating sleep problems can be. We tend to beat ourselves up when we are unable to get restful sleep, and it is very easy to blame ourselves. Stay light-hearted and know that the answers are now here for you. The information here and in Thyroid Healing is here to help you move forward and finally get the sleep waiting for you.
It can take time to resolve a sleep issue. It will take time for your body to cleanse itself of toxins, heal, and rebuild, so in the meantime, remind yourself of the laws of sleep: that your sleep account is waiting for you no matter what and that you deserve healing sleep. On top of this, you can help yourself navigate whatever rocky nights come your way with the foods and supplements I share in Thyroid Healing, the Sacred Sleep Window, and the Angel of Sleep. Soon enough, you will be able to take full advantage of your sleep account and cash in on countless nights of restful sleep.

Bell’s palsy is a relatively common condition that can show up in a myriad of ways. The face may droop in the eye, nose, or mouth area. It may droop on one side or on both sides. It can last only temporarily or for many years. At times it is very painful; other times there is no feeling at all. Sometimes Bell’s palsy affects more than just the face leaving doctors baffled. Oftentimes, when this happens, the person with the condition will be misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Unfortunately, these labels are just names that have been given to a set of symptoms that are still a mystery to medical communities.
The true cause of both Bell’s palsy and MS are not known by medical science and research, and consequently, they do not know how to effectively address these health problems either. I was the first person to point out that Bell’s Palsy is a viral issue; in particular, Bell’s palsy is caused by a specific undiscovered strain of the shingles virus. Medical communities are not yet aware of this truth. If you or a loved one have suffered with or are currently suffering with Bell’s palsy, you now have the answer to what causes this condition and the information I am sharing with you here can help you take steps toward recovery or preventing further health problems caused by the same virus.
The Shingles Virus
In medical research and science, only one variety of the shingles virus is known. If someone contracts a rash that is red and painful and it’s considered a textbook shingles rash, this is very easily diagnosed. However, there are 31 undiscovered varieties of shingles that I’ve brought to light (see my book Medical Medium for more information) and sometimes the virus does not manifest itself as a rash at all. Or someone may have a variety that develops a rash but they may also have other mystery symptoms that medical communities aren’t aware are caused by the shingles virus also. In some cases, the virus won’t result in a rash, but will show itself as Bell’s palsy. It’s also possible in a small amount of cases that someone with Bell’s Palsy will also experience a shingles rash, but in the majority of cases no rash will be present.
The variety of the shingles virus that causes Bell’s palsy probably will not be discovered for another 30 to 40 years. And if the current trend of medicine and research focusing only on genes continues, then the cause of Bell’s Palsy may never be discovered—ever.This, plus the fact that shingles is still only identified by it’s signature rash in medical communities, is why patients do not hear about shingles when they visit their doctor or health practitioner with Bell’s palsy and many other symptoms. This particular variety of the virus tends to attack the trigeminal nerve or facial nerves, which are the nerves responsible for sensation in the face and motor functions such as biting and chewing, and the droopiness known as Bell’s palsy is not the only thing that the virus may cause.
Because the virus doesn't always hit its mark, it can also affect the gums, teeth, and mouth, and even cause pain in the ear. The virus often hits different parts of nerves or misses the nerves to the face altogether. Many people go to the dentist to find a solution to their mouth pain, which resulted in pulling out teeth, only to find the pain did not improve and the teeth did not need to removed at all. This is a classic example of how the shingles virus could be to blame. These days, dentists are being a bit more cautious when patients come in with gum, teeth, and mouth pain because they have learned from their past mistakes of disrupting the teeth when it was unnecessary.
When this variety of the shingles virus hits the nerves just right, it causes Bell’s palsy. These nerves are connected to the brain and there are so many of them that are very close together. When one nerve is affected, it can affect the ones neighboring it causing additional symptoms that can even resemble a stroke.
Healing From Bell’s Palsy
Below are some steps you can take not only to recover from Bell’s palsy, but also to prevent it from happening in the first place. Sometimes if you have Bell’s palsy once, it may come again because the virus in still active in a person’s system. It’s helpful to take these steps even if you aren’t experiencing Bell’s Palsy right now for this reason.
In addition, the shingles virus that causes Bell’s Palsy can cause many other symptoms and conditions if the virus is left unaddressed so if you are a loved one have had Bell’s Palsy or any of the symptoms and conditions listed below, it would be helpful to make the adjustments to your diet and supplements that I share in this article. Other symptoms shingles can cause include different kinds of rashes, neurological symptoms like twitching, tingling, burning, spasms, chronic migraines, and headaches, frozen shoulder, diabetic nerve pain, colitis, vaginal burning, TMJ, joint pain, muscle pain, neck pain, sciatic pain, sharp nerve pain, burning nerve pain, heart palpitations, and more. Medical communities are completely unaware that these symptoms are a result of one or more of the many varieties of the shingles virus.
To heal from shingles, there are certain foods that need to be avoided along with certain foods and supplements that help to inhibit and destroy the virus. Let’s look at some of these now. For more information on the shingles virus, its many strains, and how to heal from the symptoms and conditions it causes, you can read Medical Medium.
FOODS TO AVOID
Eggs are one of the most important foods to avoid because they are fuel for viruses. When you eat eggs, you are giving the shingles virus fuel to continue proliferating. Medical research is not yet aware that viruses eat, so you might hear health practitioners claim that viruses do not eat anything at all. This is a misconception and another classic medical blunder. Many trendy doctor diets of today tell you to avoid a potato, which is actually helpful for killing a shingles virus. Meanwhile they will recommend eating lots of eggs, which will actually feed the virus along with many other viruses responsible for so many different illnesses and symptoms. The truth is that eggs are the number one food that viruses feed on. If you want to heal Bell’s palsy, it would be helpful to stay away from eggs altogether.
Dairy and pork are other foods to stay away from, mainly because of their high fat content. I know high fat diets are popular these days, but this is detrimental to anyone with Bell’s palsy. When your diet is too fatty, the blood thickens and does not allow oxygen to get to the nerves. A fatty diet also inhibits the immune system from doing its job to fight the virus that's attacking the nerves. It’s helpful to lower your fat intake whether you eat a plant based diet or you include animal foods daily. If you eat a vegan diet, reducing the amount of oils, nuts, seeds, coconut and avocado you eat is important. And if you eat animal protein, try to limit it to once a day or a few times a week and choose the highest quality lean protein sources you can. I know chicken is generally considered to be a lean meat, however chicken is best limited because it’s too high in fat for someone who is trying to fight Bell’s palsy. If you live in a place where eating animal foods is your only option, try to decrease the size of your meat portions and increase your vegetable intake along with bringing in any fruits you can throughout the day. Since fruit is unfairly feared more than ever before today, a topic I address in my Fruit Fear chapter of my book Medical Medium, hearing this may go against a trendy diet belief system that you have adopted. If this is the case, please understand that it’s what will kill off the virus—the cause of Bell’s palsy—and help you to recover your health that matters. When you know the true cause of your symptoms and conditions, your diet should then be adjusted to address it, regardless of what kind of diet belief system you subscribe to.
Find out more about these foods and other important foods to avoid in my book Thyroid Healing.
FOODS TO INCLUDE
The good news is you have a lot of secret antiviral weapons in foods that will help you heal from and prevent Bell’s palsy. Fruit is the first food to focus on. Any fruit you eat will help fight the shingles virus because the phytochemicals in fruit are antiviral. Potatoes are another secret weapon to include in your diet. Potatoes are loaded with an extremely potent bioactive L-lysine that inhibits and reduces viral activity. It’s also helpful to include plenty of leafy greens like red leaf lettuce and romaine daily. Eat a cucumber and tomato salad with cilantro, parsley, sage, and rosemary. Yes, tomato. You should not be afraid of a fresh tomato no matter what you hear out there. If you believe that tomatoes are not healthy for you, you’re being misled. Garlic and onion are perfect antivirals to defend you against the shingles virus, as are cumin and turmeric. Drinking fresh pure celery juice is a great way to send healthy mineral salts to your nerve endings. Red clover blossom tea is a great tea to include because of its potent antiviral properties. You can discover more about some of the most healing foods for shingles and Bell’s Palsy in my book Life-Changing Foods.
It’s also important to remove the heavy metals from your body and brain when you have Bell’s palsy. The shingles virus, and all viruses, feed on heavy metals like copper, mercury, aluminum, lead, nickel, steel, and more. By reducing the amount of heavy metals in your body, the shingles virus will have less fuel to proliferate and cause symptoms like Bell’s palsy and others. Check out my recipe for a Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie. In this recipe, there are five specific foods meant to draw out heavy metals from the body. These foods are Hawaiian Spirulina, Barley Grass Juice Extract, Atlantic dulse, wild blueberries, and cilantro. Include these five foods within a 24 hour period of each other to safely and properly remove heavy metals from your body. This is the most effective heavy metal detox protocol that exists. I shared it my book Medical Medium and you can also learn more on the blog.
While we are discussing heavy metals, I want to share an important truth about mercury fillings. Many people want to get their mercury amalgams removed, but you should know that if you get all your mercury fillings removed at once this could be dangerous because it will release mercury into your bloodstream that wasn’t causing a problem before. The shingles virus will then have a feeding frenzy on mercury and cause more issues. This could result in Bell’s palsy developing. If you are determined to take out your mercury fillings because one is broken or falling apart, be careful to take them out one at a time with many months or more between between each removal. This is the safest way to go about doing this. You can read more about this in Medical Medium.
SUPPLEMENTS TO HEAL BELL’S PALSY
Here is a list of supplements I recommend for those wanting to heal from Bell’s palsy. To see which brands I suggest, check out the supplement directory on my site. Talk to your health practitioner to decide on what dosages of these supplements are appropriate for you if you wish.
L-lysine impairs the ability of shingles virus cells to move and reproduce.
Liquid Zinc Sulfate lowers inflammatory reactions to the neurotoxin
produced by the shingles virus.
Licorice root tea and tincture are very effective at impairing the ability of
virus cells to move and reproduce.
Lemon balm kills off and repels viruses.
Curcumin reduces nerve swelling caused by shingles neurotoxins.
Elderberry syrup strengthens the immune system.
Monolaurin kills viruses.
B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin repairs and strengthens the areas
of the nervous system that have been damaged by the virus.
Goldenseal strengthens the immune system.
Hawaiian Spirulina supports the health of the central nervous system and is critically important for removing heavy metals that viruses feed on.
Barley Grass Juice Extract Powder is also critical for heavy metal removal alongside spirulina which helps prevent viruses like shingles from proliferating.
Hyssop tea is a potent anti-bacterial herb that helps to combat the bacteria that typically companies shingles.
Thyme tea is a powerful antiviral tonic that is essential for shingles.
Oil of Oregano is a wonderful antiviral that helps the body to detoxify poisons.
Cat’s claw tincture inhibits the shingles virus, which is many times the true cause of Lyme disease symptoms. I share the still undiscovered truth about Lyme disease in Medical Medium.
Mullein leaf tincture has strong antiviral properties that make it a potent remedy for the shingles virus.
L-glutamine removes toxins from the brain and protects neurons.
Another supplemental tool that can be a great support for regaining facial tone during or after recovery from Bell’s Palsy (depending on the person’s unique situation) is the Fantastic Faces sequence of movements offered as part of the Synergetics Tone Up System. If someone is experiencing facial droopiness for a long time, it can be helpful to try Fantastic Faces while they are working on their recovery. And if someone has facial droopiness for a short time only, they can use Fantastic Faces after recovery to help restore facial tone.
Taking these steps that I have described above can be helpful to heal from Bell’s palsy that first occurred years ago, Bell’s palsy that is current or recent, and even to prevent it from happening altogether. It will also help to minimize, prevent or recover from other symptoms caused by shingles. If you feel overwhelmed by making changes to your diet and supplementation, take it one step at a time and keep moving forward. Over time, try to incorporate as many of these antiviral foods as you can. I stand behind you on this healing journey and I am with you every step of the way. Remember that understanding the root cause of Bell’s palsy is half the battle, so you are now that much closer to true healing. I’m with you.

With this antiviral, mineral-rich broth—a cornerstone of the Thyroid Cleanse Month featured in my book Thyroid Healing—you can give yourself a nourishing, comforting boost any time. If you’d like, keep a mug of it by your side all day, refilling as you desire.
Thyroid Healing includes over 25 delicious recipes for you and your loved ones to enjoy that also support you in healing from thyroid problems and countless other symptoms and conditions. Along with these recipes, you'll also read about the 90-day Thyroid Rehab plan in Thyroid Healing. The Thyroid Rehab plan offers you three choices for how to move forward with healing so you can see which fits your needs and lifestyle the best. I included Thyroid Rehab in the book to help you to enter a new phase in life: healing, becoming, rebirth. As you follow the steps and suggestions outlined, you will be opening yourself up to transformation.
The information I share with you in Thyroid Healing is there to bring you real answers and clarity on what’s going on in your body and the most effective steps and tools you can use to heal. If you’re an avid reader of health books and articles and you think you’re aware of the latest thyroid health information, you’re going to be more than surprised—maybe even shocked—at how much more there is to know. The information in Thyroid Healing is like nothing you have read or heard, and it will bring you true comprehension of the undiscovered inner mechanics of our thyroids for the first time ever.
Thyroid Healing Broth
This wonderfully nourishing and comforting healing broth contains a selection of powerhouse ingredients for the thyroid and other glands and organs of the body. Let's take a look at some of the healing properties of a few of them...
Parsley removes high levels of copper and aluminum, which feed Epstein-Barr virus and in turn cause skin problems. It also bolsters production of the thyroid hormone T3 by helping to feed and restore the thyroid.
Thyme is an incredible antiviral that’s integral to cleaning up every thyroid disease. Its nutritional compounds get into the thyroid, killing off viruses and allowing the thyroid to regain control of itself, while this valuable food also knocks down the viral load throughout the body, helping to relieve a multitude of symptoms.
Sweet potatoes help cleanse and detox the liver from viral byproduct and toxins. They also help nourish the skin and support the adrenal glands. In addition, they help reduce fibroids and cysts throughout the body.
Celery strengthens hydrochloric acid in the gut and helps the liver produce bile to break down food. It provides mineral salts that help support the central nervous system with powerful electrolytes while they stabilize and support the adrenal glands. Celery has the ability to cleanse the thyroid of viral toxins and also bolsters the production of the thyroid hormone T3.
Onions are fantastic for their sulfur content’s ability to confuse and knock down viruses while it nourishes the thyroid gland itself. As with cruciferous vegetables, that pungent quality is exactly what gives them their value. Onions are a potent antiviral.
Garlic is an antiviral and antibacterial that kills off virus cells. It also kills off strep allowing for fewer UTIs, sinus infections, and opportunities for SIBO. It helps flush toxic viral and bacterial waste out of the lymphatic system.
Turmeric helps restore thyroid tissue, allowing the thyroid to regenerate and restore. Works on addressing viral issues throughout the body, acting as an anti-inflammatory as it reduces your viral load.
Ginger helps with nutrient assimilation and relieves spasms. Loaded with its own signature variety of bioavailable vitamin C, ginger is also a powerful antiviral. One of ginger’s special qualities is its ability to bring the body out of a reactive state by soothing nerves and muscles. Ginger helps bring balance and homeostasis to the thyroid, lifting it up if it’s hypo and calming it down if it’s hyper.
Atlantic sea vegetables (especially dulse and kelp) contain iodine that is an antiseptic for the thyroid—when it soaks into the gland, it becomes one of the thyroid’s most powerful fighting mechanisms next to zinc. Luckily, dulse and other sea vegetables also contain some zinc. These two precious minerals at work together can stop a viral infection in the thyroid, bringing down thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) in the process. Sea vegetables also help protect the thyroid from radiation’s effects, remove radiation from the thyroid, and prevent thyroid cancer.
1 cup finely chopped parsley
4 sprigs of thyme
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
2 celery stalks, diced
2 onions, diced
6 garlic cloves
1 inch turmeric root, minced
1 inch ginger root, minced
2 tablespoons dulse flakes
1 tablespoon kelp powder
8 cups water
Place the sweet potatoes, celery, onions, garlic, turmeric, parsley, thyme sprigs, dulse flakes, and kelp powder into a large pot along with the water. Bring the broth to a boil and then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Simmer the broth for one hour. Strain and enjoy as a healing, restorative broth that can be sipped throughout the day.
* This recipe may also be enjoyed as a chunky vegetable soup by leaving the vegetables in the broth.
* Alternatively, you can make a simple purée out of this recipe. Use an immersion blender to purée the vegetables smooth or transfer in small batches to a standing blender. Make sure to leave a vent for steam to escape through the top of the standing blender!
* You’re welcome to make a large batch of this soup and freeze the leftovers to use throughout the week. Try freezing the broth in an ice cube tray for easy thawing later.
* If you’d like to make this soup a little more decadent to share with company, you can add a pinch of salt and a little splash of coconut oil or coconut milk into each individual bowl just before serving.

Was there ever a time in your life when you needed something and someone helped you in some way or gave you advice? I imagine you were grateful for their support. It could have made a real difference to you, or even been life-changing. You might not have even noticed how much so at first. But as life continued on, you might have become aware of more and more ways that bit of information or support triggered a positive shift in your life. I know that for me, whenever someone has given me any help, it has touched my heart and soul deeply. I know there will have been times you’ve helped others in some way by assisting them or offering a helpful suggestion and they have felt the same way. Especially when it comes to health, a useful suggestion, tip, or insight or a helping hand can make all the difference in someone’s life.
Unfortunately though, too many millions of people don't have the answers they need for their health, and they're left suffering, struggling, unwell, or unhappy. The truth is it will take all of us to create the change we so desperately need in this world. And the other truth is, I can’t do it alone. I’m trying with everything I have to spread the word. That doesn’t mean we all need to become doctors or health practitioners or devote every moment of our time to helping others. It simply means that any little way you can support a friend, family member, someone in your community, or a stranger with the information you've learned from me can make a profound difference, more than you will likely ever know. Your strength, will, heart and soul spread the light of truth outward in ways that will change the direction of medical history in chronic illness. We are all a lighthouse for others in need, now and in the future. When you spread the truth, you will save lives, truly save lives, even if it doesn't feel like you are at first.
Getting Spirit’s healing information to those in need has never been more critical. Lives depend on it. Younger and younger people are getting sick and they’re either being provided a misdiagnosis or they’re not given any answers at all. And when children and young adults are told they are creating their illness or their body is attacking itself, which is becoming common practice now, it’s devastating. There are trends to confuse people and they’re gaining more traction than ever before due to the desperate times we’re in with sickness. Little bits and pieces of truth are speckled within the trends and all the other information out there, but they’re little droplets of truth in an enormous ocean of untruth. The challenge I’m facing is that I alone can’t get all these droplets of truthful information to everyone who needs it. I need your help. I need you to eventually become a health expert—a harbinger of the truths that can facilitate widespread healing.
When I was younger, it was far easier to get people the life-saving information they needed because there was virtually no information provided by alternative and conventional medicine to stand in the way. It was straightforward. But nowadays there’s a never ending sea of misinformation engulfing the internet and everywhere else that makes it much harder to get people the truthful information they need. That’s why I need your help. I’m asking you to support others with hope, compassion, and the wisdom you’ve gained. I need you to be as informed as possible and share this information with your loved ones and the people you encounter, even if it's simply just a recipe or small tip. No matter how big or small, anytime you pass on this information you are helping someone else.
If you’ve been reading my books and articles or listening to my radio shows, you’ll know that I often share that medical communities and medical science and research don’t have all the answers. Especially when it comes to chronic mystery illness, they are far from knowing what's really behind people's sicknesses. I am the first to put "chronic" and "mystery" together because medical communities were and still are in denial that almost every chronic illness is still a mystery, even if it has a name like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Addison's, POTS, ALS, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and hundreds of others. The causes are still unknown to research and science, which is why you are told it's your own immune system attacking itself. But we do have the answers thanks to Spirit and we can know the truth about these conditions and hundreds of others. That's why I have dedicated my life to putting Spirit's words to paper—so you can always have this medical information in your hands and share it with others so the truth can finally reach the millions of people who are suffering or have a symptom. It’s how we can create a wave of change that can eventually bring many into a safe harbor. Our time on this earth is precious so I need you to keep learning and spreading the truth. The sooner we get this healing information out there, the sooner more people will have a chance to live longer and healthier lives, and future generations can be born with health and vitality versus the epidemic of sickness we are seeing today.
I’m doing everything I possibly can to get Spirit’s information into as many books as possible. My new book Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr is the third in the Medical Medium book series. It is overflowing with brand new information that Spirit gave me to help protect you and your loved ones. The information is controversial. The reason this book is so controversial is because it frees you of the chains of the conventional and alternative medical industries that have kept people from healing for decades. It’s free from hidden agendas and paid-for studies that want you to fall prey to medical bureaucracy so that advancements in the health field keep getting delayed decade after decade. The autoimmune theory I describe in Thyroid Healing is the perfect example. This misguided theory keeps you from the truth and holds back your healing. It keeps you busy and occupied, scrambling amongst adopted belief systems and theories that have been twisted behind the scenes to cattle and coral you for a purpose that isn’t in your best interests—certainly not for you, your family, and loved ones to truly heal. If you don’t think the autoimmune theory applies to you, you’re mistaken. It applies to everyone in every way possible. This is a trap that comes in different shapes and sizes and sits waiting to trip anyone up at anytime in the future of their health and the health of their loved ones.
You won’t find citations of studies in Thyroid Healing that are traps set to convince you it’s worthy. Most studies of chronic illness have left people sick, dying, and losing everything they have—their health, time, choices, relationships, resources, and more. Citations of studies have blood on their hands, more than anyone really knows. This may seem too strong or harsh, but when people are lost or struggling without answers for their symptoms and illnesses it needs to be taken seriously. Most people who feel well have no idea what it’s like to struggle with an illness or have no answers to the symptoms they’re experiencing. It’s a different world when you're sick and on the other end of it and I have spent my lifetime respecting and honoring those who have struggled. Just having Thyroid Healing in your hands means you will now have an incredible amount of insight into how your body works, how it can become symptomatic or sick, and how you can heal. While the book focuses on thyroid problems, it is about so much more than just this gland. In fact, the information in this book is relevant to and helpful for almost anyone who has any kind of symptom or illness. There’s commonalities across many symptoms and conditions, whether they are considered to be thyroid problems or not, that I address extensively in this book. There's information on how cancer develops that I’ve never shared before. There’s an entire section devoted to sleep problems, insomnia, and undiscovered secrets about sleep and dreams. I also share the nine Great Mistakes that are preventing so many people from complete healing right now, and they don’t even know it. I also provide you with a rehab plan for your health and delicious, healing recipes that can support you no matter what types of illnesses or symptoms you’re experiencing.
The knowledge you’ll gain from Thyroid Healing will protect and arm you, and you will be helping your family, friends, and anyone else you choose to share the information with to protect themselves too. I’ve devoted my life to sharing the truth with you or anyone who will listen so eventually, with your help, everyone can have the answers they need. People’s lives are being changed from the Medical Medium books because they received the answers and information they needed that don’t exist anywhere else. Spirit and I want to do everything we can to make this kind of healing be true for everybody, and I know so many of you are spreading the word with the same hope. As you continue to spread the truths you learn in its pages, we can together provide a way out of the darkness for the people you care about, and the countless souls who are struggling.
If you haven't already pre-ordered your copy of Thyroid Healing, please consider doing so. Thank you for reading this email. Knowing that you’re in this with me, organically spreading these truths you learn in my books and from your own experiences, and then intuitively offering and sharing that advice and ideas to others is the greatest blessing I could ever ask for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul for all the hard work you're doing in life, and for spreading the word and supporting others—no matter how big and small. We're changing the world together. Knowing that we’re supporting each other brings tears of joy to my eyes and uplifts my heart. I am honored that you’re reading this email and truly thankful to have the ability to connect with you on this personal level. Please know I truly care and believe in you.
Love and many blessings,

There’s something so delightful about starting the day with a simple bowl of hearty goodness that’s specifically geared to help you heal. This flavor-packed Apple Porridge skips the grains for a delicious bowl of fruit-based satisfaction. This recipe comes straight out of my new book Thyroid Healing.
There are six ingredients in this wonderful recipe that are included in Thyroid Healing because of their undiscovered and unknown healing properties that are helpful for thyroid problems and many other types of symptoms and conditions.
Apples are anti-inflammatory for the thyroid because they starve the pathogen that causes thyroid problems. When their pectin enters the digestive system, it releases phytochemicals that bind onto the pathogen, shrouding the virus cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.
Dates contain potassium, magnesium, and glucose that support your endocrine system. Dates help to purge the liver of debris often caused by the waste matter of the pathogen that causes thyroid problems. They also trigger peristaltic action, helping the intestinal tract to squeeze and push out multiple varieties of waste that can burden the body when trying to heal.
Raw honey is the best replenishing fuel there is to feed and revitalize the thyroid. The glucose and other nutrients in raw honey practically get mainlined into the thyroid to feed the gland. Medical science doesn’t yet have its finger on the pulse of the symbiotic relationship between honey and the thyroid. An antiviral, too, that helps fight the pathogen that causes thyroid problems with its zinc content.
Lemons improve digestion by raising levels of hydrochloric acid (good acid) in the gut. Tone the intestinal lining, cleanse the liver, and offer replenishing calcium to prevent osteoporosis when the pathogen that causes thyroid problems prompts nodule formation throughout the body, which uses up calcium stores. Lemons also balance sodium levels in the blood, which allows for electrolytes to become active and improves the neurotransmitter activity that has been hampered by the pathogen's neurotoxins causing brain fog and other neurological symptoms.
Walnuts hold antiviral and antibacterial phytochemical compounds that inhibit the pathogen from proliferating in the liver, spleen, and thyroid.
Coconut is antiviral and anti-inflammatory. Coconut kills the pathogen's cells and reduces nodule growth. It also helps support the central nervous system from exposure to the pathogen's neurotoxins.
Apple Porridge with Cinnamon & Raisins
* 3 apples, sliced
* ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 pinch vanilla bean powder
* 2 dates, pitted
* 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
* ½ lemon
* ½ cup raisins
* ¼ cup walnuts (optional)
* ¼ cup shredded coconut (optional)
Combine the apples, cinnamon, vanilla bean powder, dates, honey, and the juice of the lemon in a food processor. Process all of the ingredients together until they are just combined. Pour the apple mixture into a bowl and stir in the raisins, walnuts, and shredded coconut if desired. Serve and enjoy!
* Feel free to get creative and figure out what toppings you like the most! Try different toppings on different days to get a variety of nutrients and flavors.

We all go through different types of challenges and struggles in our lives, and not just with our health. You may have experienced hardships and trials in your relationships or jobs or struggled to cope with the demands of your daily life. Each experience would have affected you in a different way. You may have felt hurt, betrayed, angry, upset, stressed, unsafe, wounded, unloved, or devastated by the experiences you’ve gone through. You might have thought to yourself, “I wish I had known this would happen. Things could have been different. I could have avoided all this pain and hardship. My heart wouldn’t be broken. If I only knew.” Can you relate? Perhaps you’ve thought or said similar words before with an experience you’ve gone through in your life. We all want to avoid pain as much as we possibly can. No one wants to suffer, struggle, or have a broken heart. But we rarely have the kind of foresight that can prevent all the pain and struggles in our lives.
When it comes to health problems, we tend to think very differently to when we have challenges in other areas of our lives. We don’t think, “If I only knew, I could have avoided getting this symptom or illness or avoided staying sick for so long,” because we are taught that most symptoms and conditions we develop are unavoidable. Instead of thinking about how you could have avoided the symptoms and pains you’re dealing with now, you may just think your body is failing you or that you’re getting old and your body is falling apart. You may think that you’re destined to suffer with a symptom or illness because it’s in your genes or you’ve been told you have an autoimmune disease and you believe your body has turned on you and is attacking itself, both of which are mistaken theories that I share the truth about in Thyroid Healing . Or you may think you have a condition or symptom that doctors don’t understand yet (and you’d likely be right). If you did receive a diagnosis, you may just think you’re stuck with it for the rest of your life.
Sadly, there is so much misinformation in medical and alternative health communities, in doctors’ offices, in health experts’ courses, and online and so few answers for people suffering with health problems that it has robbed many people of the hope and knowledge that they can heal. Here’s the truth you need to know: There are answers to what truly causes a symptom or chronic illness and you and your loved ones can become experts on your health with the information I share with you.
Since I was very young I have helped people who were deeply struggling to know the truth and unveil the mystery of their health problems for the first time ever. When the mystery has been removed and you actually know what causes your symptoms or conditions, a great relief comes over your soul, spirit and physical body and you are able to move forward with healing more powerfully than ever. You are no longer a prisoner to illness and disease. You are set free from the confusion and misinformation that comes with the guessing games, mistaken theories, incorrect labels, and misguided belief systems about health conditions that are rampant today.
It has been incredible to witness so many people finally getting the answers they’ve needed for so many years and seeing them become experts on their symptoms or illnesses with the information I’ve shared with them. They have then been able to bring their new knowledge to others to help with their healing also. What I’ve heard one person after another say over the decades is, “If I only knew. If I only knew earlier. If my sister, brother, daughter, son, niece, nephew, mother, or father only knew this before it could have given them so much relief.” This is never said with sickness. It’s only said with other challenges, struggles and roadblocks in other areas of life. I remember a mother and daughter I helped who were both sick with severe chronic fatigue. They were put in a tailspin from so much conflicting information from different doctors. They were given multiple diagnoses like Lyme disease, lupus, MS, fibromyalgia, and more, and they were also told it was all in their heads and they weren’t really sick. As you can imagine, it was a very confusing and upsetting experience for them and yet with all they went through, they still weren’t given the answers they needed—the true cause of their symptoms and how to resolve them. When they learned the truth from me, they were able to become their own health experts and take control of their health and lives for the first time. They were able to rise above their illness. And while they did say, “If we only knew earlier. So much hardship could have been avoided, including financially and emotionally,” they were so happy that they had found the answers they needed and were able to recover their health.
If you’ve been healing with the information you’ve learned in my books, radio shows, emails, blog articles, or social media posts, you may have said the same thing. You might have thought to yourself “I wish I had known this six months ago, or two, five, or ten years ago. I could have avoided so much pain and confusion, and resources and energy spent on things that didn’t work. It at least would have been helpful to know what was really wrong to begin with so there could have been relief in my heart and soul as I was working on my healing process.” I truly understand how frustrating it is that you didn’t have the truth when you first needed it, but now it is here for you. I am here to bring the truth to light. The misinformation and lack of answers out there needs to change. I wrote Thyroid Healing and all my books to do just that. The messages inside this book are controversial and edgy and go against the tide of current health trends. These trends are traps that aren't in your best interests—they’re influenced by agendas, funding, and interest groups. The information in Thyroid Healing is pure and untampered with. Is it the truth with no agenda. That’s why it goes against the grain.
Thyroid Healing is about far more than what you might think would be covered in a book about the thyroid. It is a revolutionary book about the truth—the truth about what’s really causing so many people today to suffer with annoying symptoms and/or debilitating illnesses. In Thyroid Healing I share the true cause of over 100 symptoms and conditions, all of which are currently mysteries to medical science and research. This includes thyroid conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease, hyper or hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer, parathyroid disease, goiters, thyroid nodules, tumors and cysts. It also includes symptoms like hair loss, insomnia, eye floaters, hot flashes, constipation, blurry vision, brittle nails, tinnitus, aches and pains, mood swings, cold hands and feet, memory loss, puffy face, irritability, headaches, twitches and spasms, heart palpitations, brain fog, vertigo, anxiety, depression, fatigue, dry skin, anxiety, weight gain, weight loss, and other unexplained symptoms or illnesses.
Did you know that our best science and research still has no answers for the true causes of these symptoms and conditions? You may get a diagnosis and you may be given some medication or suggestions to change your diet and lifestyle, some of which may be helpful. Healthier diets and caring, brilliant doctors are needed in the world. I see great people in the field of medicine who save lives and give so much relief and hope to many, but when it comes to chronic and mystery illness, it’s a different world. We need all the help we can get. We need to know what’s really wrong, where the mistakes are, what to look out for, how to protect ourselves, and how to avoid the mistakes that set us up for a fall or set us back. Most people who have a symptom or illness believe either that their genes are bad, their body is attacking itself, their immune system is attacking itself, or that they created their illness. Or they may believe that the label they have been given for their illness means the cause has been found, when it hasn’t. This is a deception.
The truth is that both alternative health and conventional medical communities today suggest and prescribe information, protocols, and treatment for different health problems without actually knowing the true causes of those problems even if the disease, condition, or illness has a label. And without knowing the true causes, it’s impossible to know the correct treatment. That’s why people who do improve with treatment can slide backwards as the years go by. Even if you’ve been given a diagnosis, you can’t become an expert on your health condition and symptom and heal it unless you know the cause to begin with. For example, even if you’ve been given a Lyme disease diagnosis, your doctor doesn’t truly understand it. Nor does the blood laboratory where you get your tests done. The tests themselves aren’t even accurate. Likewise, if you get told you have multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or eczema, your doctor doesn’t even know the truth about what causes these conditions and how to heal from them. The same is true for countless other conditions and symptoms. This has to change. You have the right to know the truth and become an expert in your health. You deserve to have the opportunity to heal and to protect yourself and your loved ones from future sickness and disease. Thyroid Healing was written for you for this exact reason—so that you can become the expert. It will help you to understand how symptoms and illnesses develop in the body, how healing occurs, and empower you to help yourself, your family, friends, community, and anyone who crosses your path throughout your life.
Nothing makes my heart happier than knowing you, your loved ones, and other people you come into contact with are able to move forward with healing because there is no mystery anymore about what you’re really struggling with. We have to work together to get the truths I share out into the world so we can begin to shift the tragic trend of misinformation and mistaken theories that are so pervasive today. The health of millions of people is unknowingly being affected. Thank you so much for being a vital part of bringing about this change in any way you can. No matter how small or large it may seem, every bit of information you learn or share matters and helps greatly. I am honored you’re here with me and I commend you for your commitment to helping yourself and others heal.
Love and many blessings,

Every parent wants their child to be healthy and thriving. Not only do we want our children to be healthy while they are under our roof, but we also want to set them up with the best possible health from a young age so they can avoid or minimize chronic illnesses as adults. In the following article, I will outline some rudimentary practices that are beneficial for children of all ages.
Immune Systems and Deficiencies
When thinking about children’s health, we need to consider two things. First, it is important to strengthen your child’s immune system so that it is ready to react appropriately when your child is exposed to a bug or toxin. Second, start working on eliminating deficiencies in your child’s diet. The health problems we have as adults partly stem from deficiencies we experienced in childhood, so it is important to work on these immediately to stave off any chronic illnesses that may crop up in the future.
Common Health Problems in Children
Why is it important to work on building up the immune system and eliminating deficiencies? There are so many common health problems children experience that make life harder for the child and the parents. Not only is it scary for families to go through illnesses, but it is not enjoyable to be at the doctor’s office every single week because of symptoms and illnesses that can be avoided. Many children experience ear infections, which are caused by the bacteria streptococcus as well as by certain viruses. Children pick up colds, flus, and fevers all year long, and they might get bronchitis, pneumonia, or sinus infections. It is also common for children to get mystery swollen glands and a fever which are very early signs of mono. Doctors try to avoid diagnosing younger children with mono because of training they receive in medical school that prohibits this. If the truth that children may have an Epstein-Barr virus infection very early on becomes known, there will be much greater awareness of the virus and it will need to become a focus of research and funding, which requires millions of dollars. This is the reason it’s prohibited. It's not the doctors’ faults. It has nothing to do with them. Even blood labs aren’t responsive to early EBV testing in children, toddlers and even babies for this very reason. This might sound controversial but it’s the truth. I share more of the unknown truth about EBV in detail in my book Thyroid Healing.
Another common ailment is tonsillitis. Medical research is still unaware of the true cause of tonsillitis. Medical science and research aren’t aware that the true cause is a form of EBV when it is in the tonsils, along with EBV’s cofactor—the bacteria streptococcus—and this can be healed by working on lowering your viral and bacterial load with the information I share in my books, radio shows, and articles. For more information about how to heal Epstein-Barr Virus, check out my book Thyroid Healing. And for more information on how to address a streptococcus infection, you can listen to my radio show and read the blog article on this topic.
Other common health problems in children include issues that stem from liver stagnancies, like eczema, psoriasis, constipation, food allergies, and sleep issues. It’s possible to have a stagnant liver even as a child because our parents can pass down toxins, viruses, bacteria, radiation and more at conception and throughout pregnancy (and at any time in our youth or adulthood,) and they can affect the liver of a child even before birth. You can learn more about eczema and psoriasis in my radio show and article. These ailments caused by a sluggish liver are often labeled as autoimmune diseases, when actually they can be healed by bringing in some foods to build up the child’s immune system. There are also viral conditions that children often experience, which requires the immune system to be further supported to fend off these pathogens.
While many of these health problems get labeled as autoimmune diseases, this is simply not the case. Your child’s body is not attacking itself. Please do not fall into this trap of confusion. Our bodies love us unconditionally and are always working for us, not against us. You can trust your body, and your child’s body, is always supporting you. It’s also vital that you know that these symptoms and conditions are not genetic. You and your child do not have faulty genes. This is another mistaken theory that is leaving people feeling let down by their own bodies. It’s absolutely critical to know the truth about these two misguided theories, which is why I address them in detail in my book Thyroid Healing. You and your loved ones need to know the truth for the sake of your health.
Foundational Immune System Support
Remember that not all supplements are created equal. It’s crucial to purchase vitamins that are truly pure and high quality so you can feel confident that they will actually support your child’s immune system. A multivitamin that I love that supports children of all ages is from MaryRuth’s Organics. They have a morning multivitamin and a night time multimineral supplement that I recommend for children on a daily basis. This product is very pure and does not contain MSG hidden under another name, like so many of the so-called natural vitamin products available to us in health food stores.
Liquid zinc sulfate is a supplement I recommend for people of all ages. For your child, make sure he or she is getting a couple of drops of zinc on and off throughout the year for protection and immune support. As a society, we are devastatingly zinc deficient. It is one of the most important supplements to focus on because without zinc, our health can fall apart. At the core of so many of the health problems children experience is a zinc deficiency that starts early on. Probiotics can also be included in your children’s routine. Garden of Life Raw Probiotics are safe, gentle, and helpful for children.
Elderberry syrup is an incredible supplement that you can incorporate throughout the winter months and even throughout the summer, as well. Instead of cod liver oil, which was an old staple that is not actually helpful for immune support, try a plant based algae EPA/DHA. Hawaiian spirulina and barley grass juice extract powder is helpful for removing heavy metals in our children’s systems. In my book Medical Medium, I shared that we come into this world with toxic heavy metals that are passed on to us from many generations before and with each generation they become stronger and more dangerous. Medical science and research are not aware that heavy metals cause or contribute to conditions such as autism, ADHD, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, eczema, psoriasis, learning difficulties, and more, so it’s critical to know how to safely remove them. If you are breastfeeding and worried about taking steps to eliminate heavy metals, do not worry because the metals will not go into your breast milk if it’s the specific combination of the five foods I recommend. It is still safe to take some Hawaiian spirulina and barley grass juice extract powder when breastfeeding, along with the other three heavy metal removal foods that I share on my heavy metal detox blog post and radio show. These two supplements balance out the immune system and are helpful in many other ways, which I speak about throughout the materials offered on this site and in my books.
You can also strengthen your child’s immune system by removing certain foods from his or her diet. When you hear complaints about tummy aches or digestive issues, consider eliminating gluten and dairy products. I am aware that we have been told our whole lives that cow’s milk is essential for our children’s health and that dairy builds strong bones. However, this is inaccurate. Children do not require dairy to have strong bones. In fact, it is the calcium and silica in plant foods that strengthen bones. If you are worried about removing dairy, please know that we have been misinformed about this aspect about health. Also, consider removing eggs, corn, and soy. These are common allergens that are not supportive for children’s immune systems. I discuss these foods and why they are important for everyone to avoid, including children, in my book Thyroid Healing.
Remember that you have options when it comes to eliminating foods. If it feels overwhelming to remove all of these foods from your family’s diet, consider taking out one or two at a time and see how this affects your child’s health and immunity.
Another note, if you are not breastfeeding and would still like to give your child milk, you can make your own supplemental milk at home that is very healthy and full of vitamins and minerals your child needs. Just blend avocado, ripe banana, and water or coconut water to create a delicious drink to replace breastmilk or to supplement on top of it.
WHEN DEALING WITH A FEVER
If your child comes down with a cold or flu, hydration is critical. As soon as you feel your child is developing a fever, stop the solid foods right away and increase the liquids. Give your sick child plenty of lemon water, vegetable broths, fresh cucumber juice, coconut water or even a pure bottled fruit juice such as 100% apple juice and you can dilute it with a little bit of water or coconut water. Giving your child food when the fever has begun will only spike their temperature and make it more difficult to fight. It’s crucial to stave off the fever with high quality hydration.
THE MEDICINAL KIT
In addition to the regular supplements I’ve recommended above, it is helpful to have some herbs and supplements on hand in preparation for times of crisis. When you or your child feels something coming on, you can turn to this kit to find what you need. There’s nothing worse than your child becoming ill late on a Friday or weekend night and wishing wish you had some elderberry syrup on hand!
Eclectic Institute has a line of children’s herbs that I have trusted in for years. Some of their best products are the Kid’s Echinacea Goldenseal Throat Spray, Kid’s Elderberry Red Root Throat Spray, Kid’s Herbal Cough Elixir, and Herbal Biotic.
Another important herb to have on hand is Mullein Ear Oil, which is highly effective for ear infections. You can put a couple of drops of this in your child’s ear to prevent ear infections and to help the infection if it’s already started. Ask your health practitioner for advice on how to use these supplements best for your family.
Helpful Foods for Deficiencies
When considering deficiencies in your children, it is very helpful to work on correcting them early on so that your kids are set up for a better life for years to come. Decades into the future deficiencies will crop up if they are not handled at a young age, even if your child’s health seems good and stable during their younger years. The following are some foods that are very helpful to include in your child’s diet. If your children are older already, there’s nothing to be concerned about, you can simply take these steps now to support them. I understand that children are their own individuals with their own unique opinions and preferences; so if your child simply won’t eat certain foods at this age, perhaps that will change in the future. For example, if your child won’t eat avocado, try offering them another one of the foods from the list below. By keeping your house full of delicious fruits, leafy greens, and vegetables, you will be able to see your child make their own decisions and reach for the healthful foods they are interested in. Just keep your counters stocked with their favorites from this list, and maybe soon their palate will begin to expand.
Bananas are one of the top foods for children. They are loaded with amino acids, protein, and even healthy fats. Bananas are filled with potassium, which is critical for brain health and brain development. These are an absolute staple to include in your child’s diet. And do not be afraid of the sugar in fruit. Feel free to encourage your children to eat as many bananas as they please because this amazing fruit is so essential to their health. If you are afraid of fruit, you may want to read the chapter called “Fruit Fear” in my book, Medical Medium.
Berries are another staple food to provide to children. They are absolutely packed with phytochemicals, antioxidants, and anthocyanins. Try to incorporate wild blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and any other type of berries your children gravitate toward.
Apples and pears are some more fruits that are important to include in your child’s diet. And remember to have sweet potatoes and winter squash on hand to throw into your meals. Try to incorporate turnips, different varieties of potatoes, coconut, and avocado, as well. These are all great foods to help your children avoid deficiencies.
Celery and cucumbers are also important to include because they have mineral salts, which build electrolytes. When electrolytes are strong, this strengthens the brain’s neurotransmitters. This is important to consider when it comes to the problem so many children have with staying focused.
Another fantastic food to give to children is homemade popsicles. Brew some lemon balm tea, mix it with raw honey, and freeze it in popsicle molds. You can also make popsicles out of blended fruit like cantaloupe and watermelon popsicles. This is a wonderful way to get your children to eat more of the antioxidant- and vitamin-rich foods to prevent deficiencies.
Try making sweet potato soup for your little ones. Simply boil sweet potatoes and blend them with hot water, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This creates a nutrition-filled, warming soup that is satisfying to anyone who loves sweets.
I share the truth about how all of these foods and many more benefit us and our children physically, emotionally, and spiritually in my book Life-Changing Foods. The book also has 50 mouth-watering healing recipes for you and your family to enjoy!
You can even do gluten free waffles and pancakes using millet and oat flour. And you can make banana ice cream by freezing ripe bananas, then blending them in a high-speed blender or food processor. This is a delicious snack or breakfast and a great alternative to dairy-based ice cream filled with toxic sugar and heavy metals.
You may be wondering if you should stay away from bottled juices. Bottled juices are great when you can find them organic with no natural flavors or additives. They are available at most grocery stores these days and they provide a convenient source of anthocyanins, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. Fresh juice is always best, but bottled juices serve a helpful purpose too.
There is so much to say when it comes to children’s health. This article simply lays out some helpful steps you can take to build up your children’s immune system and eliminate deficiencies. Remember just to take it one step at a time. This information may seem overwhelming and a lot to take in all at once. There is so much misinformation out there and I want to help ensure your child has the best possible chance for a healthy life by sharing these truths with you.
