Hello! I have missed chatting with you all and seeing what you have been getting up to in the blogoshpere.
To get right to it, I now know why I could not run anymore, was permanently hot, had sleepless nights, failing eye sight, had tremours, couldn’t stop eating and had a slight goiter on the right side of my neck.
Without boring you too much, I went to the doctor (under duress) and was diagnosed with toxic autoimmune thyroiditis and was bombarded by specialists to immediately ingest dangerous medication and have radioactive iodine injected into my body or take the risk of having a thyroid storm (crisis), oh and die. All times I heard them say that – Urgh! What they want to do is take my extremely overactive thyroid, destroy it, which will result in a non functioning or underactive thyroid for which I would have to take life long medication. Incidentally, they don’t tell you this medication only provides one of the hormones you require and leads to other health issues like osteoporosis!
Every ounce of me said No, No, No! There HAS TO BE another way to fix this.
According to the doctors there is not and if I do not act immediately, I am taking my life into my own hands and could go into a thyroid storm at any minute and die! Again, URGH! When I spoke with the referring doctor about my decision to take an alternative natural route, he laughed at me and I don’t need to tell you what he said would happen if I did not follow the western route.
Fast forward a week and a flight to Johannesburg to help my folks pack for their move here to the River and to see an iridologist, who I used to see when living there who guaranteed me we can normalise my thyroid without a shadow of a doubt AND it will only take the better part of a couple of months. He answered all my questions the way I was hoping he would and I knew absolutely he was right. I threw my arms around him in relief. Not sure that was very professional but too bad.
After one week of taking the medication, my tremours completely stopped, my eye sight improved, I am sleeping much better and I am not permanently having to fan myself although I must say, the appetite hasn’t subsided much, yet…
It saddens me how traditional doctors aren’t more accepting of the results of homeopathy and how the two can work hand in hand. No matter as I am fast on my way to a normal functioning thyroid. Next step is to have the blood tests done again to prove my counts have normalised. I cannot wait!
