Thyroid Diseases



Thyroid Picture Welcome to Victoria's 7 Tips for Natural Hypothyroidism Treatment






The best way to determine if you are low thyroid is by taking your temperature using a regular and inexpensive mercury thermometer.  Dr. Broda Barnes, M.D., of Hypothyroidism, The Unsuspected Illness,  developed the axillary temperature test (under the arm) to determine
hypothyroidism when it doesn’t show up in blood panel.

The blood panel may not show hypothyrodism but you can still have symptoms.  Many of the books mention doing the under the arm test, but lately some experts think the underarm method is outdated because many people can be one degree low when taking it there.  The oral temperature is much more accurate, and people using the underarm method have been found to be taking too much thyroid, experiencing hyperactive thyroid systems, and when dosage is reduced to correspond to proper oral temperatures, the hyperthyroid symptoms disappear.


Dr. Raymond Peat also believes that the oral temperature is more accurate than taking it under the arm.

It is so important to work on getting and keeping your temperature at 98.6.  The thyroid system is a vicious circle, one thing leads to another until bacteria, parasites, and viruses attack and cause other diseases and symptoms, including the body's wanting to attack itself. When body enzymes are not the correct temperature, 98.6, they don't turn into correct hormones, which then cause illness.

Take your oral temperature using a mercury thermometer.  Your optimum oral temperature should be 98.0 in the morning before arising.  Your oral temperature should rise to 98.6 to 99 degrees for about 10 hours a day (from 8 am until 11 am).  Anything below these temps could indicate hypothyroidism.  Hypothyroid's can have temperatures 1, 2, and even 3 degrees below normal.

A good test time is to take your oral temperature between 11 am and 3 pm.  The next time to do this is 20 minutes after lunch which is when your thyroid function should be at its best. 

If your temperature is normal and you still have symptoms, you could have a low grade infection that is raising your temperature. Symptoms really need to be taken into account.

Once the low grade infection is taken care of, you would be able to pick up the low temperature.

Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
