Edward F. Group
In order to control or keep this condition from occurring, you need to keep a sustain attack everyday. This involves a diet that includes foods that enhance thyroid function, such as whole grains, raw seeds, prunes, apricots, potatoes, dates, apricots, egg yolks, molasses and parsley. Limit consumption of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, mustard greens, peaches, pears, radishes, spinach and turnips because these foods suppress thyroid function.

Now, think about the body. You can also do things to the outside of your body to help. Let's start with body cleansing. Body cleansing is extremely important part of every prevention and curing program. Most people need more then this, especially when it comes to liver health. Body Cleansing is even important for children. Our internal organs can hold lots of toxins, and sometimes, it is impossible to get those toxins out, without doing cleansing. Our liver can contain hundreds of intrahepatic stones. Those stones will block bile flow, and affect the bases of your health, your digestion. Another problem is parasites. You must learn as much as possible about parasites. And, don't forget also dental toxins.
Let start with a cleansing program. You are supposed to do cleansing in this order:
2. Dental cleanup (if you can afford it) - dental work may be one cofactor of your disease: amalgam, root canal, nickel crowns, cavitations (pocket inside jaw bone left after extraction of the wisdom and molar teeth )
3. Kidney and liver cleanse.
Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example 180 lb = 90 oz. of water daily. Divide that into 8 or 10 oz. glasses and that's how many glasses you will need to drink, daily. Use 1/4 tsp. of organic apple cider vinegar for every quart of water you drink. Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to 12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you.
Physical activity helps cleansing; it brings balance and relieves
1. Mini Trampoline jumping - rebounding!
3. Walk or jog in nature. This includes a forest, mountain, river, sea, lake, beach, etc
4. Go fishing, photo-safari, rowing, riding, golf
5. Tai Chi, Chi Gong, Meditation
6. Yoga - Hatha, Meditation, Chinese Yoga
7. Martial Arts: Karate, Judo, Kung Fu, Teakwood, Budokai, Uechi, Aikido
8. Dancing, Aerobics, Gymnastics, Stretching
