I was reading an article by Dr Mercola and something stood out:

Almost 90 percent of the hormone produced by your thyroid is in the form of T4, the inactive form. Your liver then converts the T4 into T3, the active form, with the help of an enzyme.

After reading that article, I began to understand why there is so much conflicting information and why many people don’t feel good when taking their pills…

Many people with hypothyroidism do actually produce enough T4… but their liver is not converting it to the active form of T3…

Adding more T4 to their body is only making them feel worse… they should be focusing on their liver instead…

When I started to learn about body regeneration I remember hearing that your liver regenerates every 2 months… so you should have a “new” liver every two months…


… but that can’t happen unless you give your body the raw materials it needs to do so… Your body needs about 10 pounds of coconut oil to be able to regenerate every 2 months as explained by Dr Cassar in this video:

But that’s not the only thing I’ve noticed since I started using coconut oil… I’ve found it has helped with metabolism. Unfortunately, we live in a world where most people get their energy from carbohydrates and think of all fats as being bad fats.

Your body can actually use fat as energy as long as it is a good fat.

The right term for fat, should be fatty acid. You are looking for the good fatty acids and add them to your diet. Don’t be fooled when people tell you that saturated fats are bad and don’t try to debate on that. Focus on getting the right fatty acids. Coconut oil has lauric acid and that is a good one!!

I’ve been using coconut oil for 2 years now and I can tell you it’s been one of the best staple foods I’ve added to my diet since I started dealing with hypothyroidism

It’s important to note that I used to have many allergies and didn’t understand why. Many things made me sick until I realized I had a gut problem. I didn’t have good gut flora and after reading Wardee’s story on how she reversed food allergies through nourishing foods I decided I needed to look into traditional cooking… I was afraid to eat coconuts for that reason, but now that I’ve worked on my gut flora and added probiotics to my diet, I’m doing much much better…

I’ll be blogging more about that in the future…

      I’ve been suffering with thyroid disease for 22 years and its been a major struggle in my life. Its seems like one diagnosis after another and I still feel horrible. I’ve gone from hyper to hypo and now Graves. All I want is to live better and feel better!

      You fellows sound like you care about people, so I thought you might like to know, I ate an avocado pit and got deathly ill. I recently found that the pit has toxins. Please check your research.

        Thank you for sharing your experience. This is a good thing to bring up because it’s not only about what you eat but also how you prepare it.

        Seeds and grains have a protection mechanism that inhibits enzyme activity or it binds to minerals to prevent sprouting.

        This is why you must learn more about soaking, sprouting and lacto fermenting… making tea also gets rid of the phytic acid.

        Keep researching, keep learning.
