Case Study – Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Melissa had a thyroid problem.

She had asked  a dozen Doctors for help, over a full decade.  They all agreed that she had a thyroid problem, and she did have multiple symptoms of hypothyroidism.  They did their best to heal her thyroid, but they were treating the effect, and not the cause.  She had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and autoimmune condition. 

(My insurance contract was terminated for helping her, so the picture is appropriate)

She was so sick and exhausted that she felt like she was dying.  She quit a career she loved to take care of her health, and by the time she found True Health, she was broken physically and financially. 

I took care of her for whatever she could pay.  She helped make True Health beautiful in exchange, as she felt better.

When Melissa and I first met, she was ready to give in to whatever comes after our earthly existence.  She confided that I was her “last hope!”  (No pressure or anything!) 

She had tried ‘everything’ to resolve hypothyroidism, but for 10 years, she had been getting weaker and more exhausted.

And she was in severe pain!  She had pain running from the top of her head, down her right arm to her thumb, and down her right leg to her big toe.  She rated it 10 out of 10 on some days, where she couldn’t get out of bedOther days, she could get up and eat to stay alive, but not much else. 

Her first doctor diagnosed a thyroid problem from the two blood tests, TSH and T4. 

He prescribed Synthroid, which according to Medscape is the nation’s top prescribed drug, despite no known root cause of thyroid problems, well except when doctors destroy it with radiation in the treatment of Graves Disease.

True Health has resolved Graves Disease with Mother’s medicine, so there is another way.

Melissa’s story didn’t start out so well.  Synthroid caused her pain to increase dramatically.  She was naturally minded anyway, so she turned to alternative medicine.  Pushed gently by the fact that her real medicine hurt like a Mother!

Her alternative doctors did a better job of listening and responding, and she actually felt some improvement taking their medicines.  “I am slightly less exhausted!

But they all focused on her Thyroid problem, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease.  Care needs to be focused on her immune system.

When she visited True Health, she felt as bad as she had ever felt.  She said something like, “she could just give in to death, it feels so close.”  DrStone said “Pshaw, let’s run a few tests.  I bet we’ll find a way to heal.

I took her case history, as doctor’s do, and when she told me about the pain, I thought, “I’ve seen tons of Thyroid problems, and pain is not a prominent symptom.”  This had to be something else.

Then she told me about a chronic sore throat, anxiety and chest tightness, that she rated as severe.  She was inflamed and stressed out.  Thyroid problems present more like soft women, and some men, tired of a hard world.

I guessed it before we ran the test, Autoimmune Thyroiditis.

Real doctor’s often resist testing for autoimmune thyroid problems.  Their only treatment for autoimmune problems is chemotherapy, to suppress the immune system.  And they don’t consider Hashimoto’s “bad enough” to use their hurtful medicine.

Autoimmune does NOT mean helpless. It just requires another question. 

What is aggravating her immune system?  Allergens, toxins, or infections?

I would estimate that I see toxins and infections as the trigger 90% of the time.

Formaldehyde, a know carcinogen, is used in home construction.  We are surrounded by it in the name of profit.  Antibiotics weaken our immune system, and repeated use causes Super-Infections.  I didn’t name that.

“Super-Infection” is the term medicine uses to describe the parasitic, fungal, yeast, or antibiotic resistant bacterial infections, that are a known side effect of antibiotics.

Melissa was one of the 10% that showed an allergy to food.  Gluten.  Gluten free is trendy.  I hate trends.  Doing something because it is popular feels like the most horrifying reason to do anything.  I helped create all of True Health’s amazing healing stories by sorting for results, not popularity.

“Results” wasn’t easy to find, because nearly everyone taught opinions and ideas, and very few were willing to try it out and see for themselves.  Can you believe that some people are afraid to try plant medicines?  I wonder which for-profit  corporation stuck that idea in their brain?

Parkinson's Disease
Ok, no problem.  Gluten free was nothing compared to the pain she had endured for 10 years!

With the immune aggravation gone with a change in shopping habits, we turned our attention to inflammation and the damage 10 years of no help caused her adrenal glands.

In autoimmune diseases, the immune system shifts hard in one direction.  That imbalance creates inflammation.  In Melissa’s case, we used True Immune Balance 2.

Our next healing need was adrenal exhaustion.

I prescribed True Energy Boost, Blood Sugar Balance, and Stress Resilience.  Earlier versions of course; I was learning by trial and error.  But my best was good enough.

Just to give you an idea of how exhausted she was.  Her cortisol levels were undetectable by lab at lunch, dinner and bedtime.  Cortisol is a hormone that is released during times of stress.  Ten years of suffering had her near zero.

It took time to recover from way too close to death, almost a year before she felt healthy again.  By her third year of leaning in to Mother Nature and True Health, she reported best ever.  She was past retirement age, and she said, “I don’t think I’ve  felt this alive ever in my life!

True Health was kicked out of our last insurance company for sharing her story on our website, and officially was no longer covered by any of these helpful men.

Mother NatureI responded like a caretaker would.

I now offer A Metabolic Tune-Up for those willing to try Mother Nature.  In preparing this website, I searched and searched for evidence of hurt at the hands of Mother.  Not a single death by her medicine.

I found one harsh side effect from taking Momma’s medicine unwisely.  It resolved naturally.  A small percentage get tummy aches from consuming roots and bark.  And nearly everyone finds the taste bad.

I don’t enjoy the taste, but I love it.  I can swish the most bitter medicine around my mouth with ease, because I have witnessed and felt the love and healing of Mother.

You can get them all.  All the medicines that produced these results, without a prescription, in our online store.

If you are more complicated than average, like Melissa, call or email, and I will help.



True Health is the Cure for Hypothyroidism and Thyroid Disease

True Health Resolves Thyroid Symptoms and Thyroid Problems.

True Health has helped more people with hypothyroidism, thyroid disease, thyroid problems, and thyroid symptoms than any other condition!

Some conditions I’ve only helped once, like Parkinson’s Disease.  But that’s only because I’ve only seen one person with Parkinson’s Disease.  Thyroid patients have flocked to our clinic, even driving 2-3 hours each direction to resolve their hypothyroidism symptoms.

Parkinson’s patients are told to give up hope, and most listen.  But one man listened to his wife, and called True Health, for a much better prognosis.  (1)

People with thyroid symptoms are often told “there is nothing wrong with you,” despite having 12 classic hyper- or hypothyroidism symptoms, or if they qualify for Hypothyroidism, they are given Synthroid until their TSH is normal, and then they are dismissed as “cured.”

If they complain that they still feel awful, they are offered an antidepressant or treated like a malingerer!

That’s medical terminology for faking your pain.

Thyroid patients become their own doctor, and google for help.  In the Asheville area, they find Asheville Thyroid Clinic.  I bought and created a little beacon of hope for tired women, and some men, frustrated with manly doctors who don’t have a clue how to help a tired woman.

My first thyroid case was Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Real doctors put this woman on Synthroid, and it increased her pain so much that she tossed her prescription in the garbage.

Then she spent the next 10 years searching for relief  from her thyroid symptoms from dozens of alternative medicine doctors.

When she finally found True Health, she was unable to work, and said, “you’re my last hope doc.  If this doesn’t help, I’m going to give in to death.”  I helped her, and I wrote up her story on our website, describing her thyroid problems as hypothyroidism.

When you’re an “insurance doctor” they check to make sure you are staying in line with an annual inspection.  The insurance providers reviewed my website and saw her story. They dismissed me for treating a medical conditionThyroid Disease.

If you wonder why doctors won’t go the extra mile, I think it’s because insurance companies have doctors financial security squeezed tightly in their fist.

One of the next thyroid problems I treated was Grave’s disease.  I did as my instructor said, and told her I couldn’t help her.  I was taught to not accept patients with Grave’s disease, because of the possibility of a heart attack, which could result in a lawsuit for my lack of following proper protocol.  

The wise woman in front of me said, “I will not go back.  Their protocol is to destroy my thyroid.  If you won’t help me, I will do my best on my own.”  I followed my heart and helped her to the best of my abilities, and it turned out my professor was wrong.  My best effort resolved her Grave’s disease completely, and she is still fine 10 years later.

I’ve seen two people with Grave’s disease.

Both stories are in the Grave’s disease – Case studies linked above.  The second I saved from “Orbital Decompression Surgery,” where a surgeon reaches up through the nostrils and removes one or more bones of the eye socket to allow the swollen eyes to settle further back into the head.

If you have one of those Autoimmune thyroid problems, you may need my help.  There are a few steps that must happen to balance the immune system, and then True Thyroid Repair will lift your energy and metabolism.

If you just have hypothyroidism and chronic low thyroid symptoms, research proves that True Thyroid Repair works.  Here are the natural ingredients, grown by a True Lady, Mother Nature.

Ginseng:  T3, T4, and rT3 were all significantly improved after just two weeks taking Ginseng. (2)

Ashwagandha: “Eight weeks of treatment with Ashwagandha improved serum TSH , T3 and T4  levels significantly compared to placebo.” (3)

Wild Yam: Wild Yam significantly decreased belly fat caused by binge eating.  Some of my thyroid patients would gain three pounds if they smelled bread!  Sounds like a good match. (4)

CayenneThis study says that Cayenne significantly reduced the nausea and vomiting, so frequently felt, after manly doctors cut out a patient’s thyroid gland.

Please call me before treating Thyroid Disease with Destruction!

Devil’s Club: Native Americans have long used this herb for diabetes.  It decreases sugar cravings, and reduces blood glucose and blood cholesterol levels.  Devil’s club has adaptogenic properties similar to other members of the Ginseng family.  It decreases the brain response to stress, allowing the body to cope more successfully with stress and anxiety. It also gently energizes the body without over-stimulating the nervous system.

Healing IBS and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS is a disabling condition.

This woman planned her life around bathrooms.  IBS alternates between miserable constipation and urgent diarrhea, and it shifts suddenly.  Wherever she went, she had to map out the bathrooms every step of the way.  And still, she had to carry extra panties in her purse for accidents.

Nobody could see her disability.  She still had to earn a living, put up with a hurtful husband, and make more than the average number of doctor’s visits.  She had been asking for help for 40 years.

Her doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with her for 30 years.  Then after 20 years in an abusive marriage, they found that she was tired of it.  Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

Another invisible disability.  She divorced and kept going, but now every step was like walking through mud that was neck deep.  Her thyroid hormone replacement lifted her energy, but she still rated energy as 3-4 out of 10 on her intake forms.

After 40 years of struggle she called True Health.  Her disability had increased in intensity and now included a mustache and beard, frequent insomnia, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain fog, and weight gain.  Plus more time in the bathroom for facial hair waxing.

I don’t understand how a person in pain and discomfort can be told by a doctor that she is fine.  Keep reading to find out how many things we found wrong with her when you care enough to take helping seriously!

We tested everything on this woman.  Food allergy / sensitivity, stool analysis, adrenal hormones, and our comprehensive blood testing.  When I received her records from her last doctor, there was one page with three test results.  No wonder they couldn’t find what was wrong, they didn’t look.

Our testing offered approximately 30 pages of results.  We discovered that her thyroid problem was actually an autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Doctors tend to not even test for this, because it doesn’t change what they prescribe.

I was taught that if a problem is autoimmune, there is always an immune stress that triggers the disease.  Doesn’t that make sense?

We found three.  The stool analysis identified Pseudomonas bacteria and a parasite called Enterobius Vermicularis, also known as pinworms.  Pseudomonas is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that you catch by visiting the doctor.  Pinworms is a childhood infection.

Her food sensitivity testing revealed that her immune system was reacting to gluten.  That meant that every time she ate bread or wheat products, it would cause more destruction to her thyroid gland.

The last discovery was low adrenal hormone levels.  I was taught to call that adrenal fatigue or exhaustion.  And that provided the whole story.

As a child, she gets a pinworm infection.  Her parents take her to the doctor because her tummy hurts and she has diarrhea.  They can’t find anything wrong.  

She keeps asking for help for the next 30 years, and instead of helping, they infected her with an antibiotic resistant bacteria.  Infections cause inflammation, and an inflamed gut begins to react to gluten.  The inflammation causes exhaustion of her adrenal glands and autoimmune thyroid problems.

Why didn’t her doctors, for 40 years, look closely enough to find what was making her miserable?

I don’t know for sure, but the medical playbook says the suggested treatment of IBS is “Offer support and understanding.”  The medical playbook is the Merck Manual.  It is what insurance guidelines are based on.  That means that anything else, any diagnostic testing or treatment other than “offer support and understanding” is not covered.

Doctors who rely on insurance coverage to pay their bills are stuck with these guidelines.

Insurance kicked me out years ago, for not following the rules.  (Healing a medical condition)

After 40 years, she finally understands her suffering and disability.  She finally had the right diagnosis.  The root cause.

The next question is, do I have medicine strong enough to resolve pinworms, antibiotic resistant bacteria, and heal her inflamed thyroid and exhausted adrenals.  Does Mother Nature, my partner in healing, have the strength of medicine to resolve these problems?

I prescribed True GI Cleanse because it eliminates all infections.  One of the ingredients, Larrea, is research proven to kill the brain eating amoeba.  This parasite swims into your nose while you swim in warm pools or hot springs.  It climbs up the olfactory nerve into your brain, and actually consumes your brain.  You have two weeks to live and medicine has nothing to slow or stop you from dying.

Researcher in Arizona heard that the native Americans used this plant for clearing infections.  Desperate for a resource to help, they tested Mother Nature in a petri dish and Larrea killed the brain eating amoeba.  

She had to avoid gluten and beans too, but in just a few weeks, she felt 40 years of getting worse, getting better.  I call that a healing trend.  We added True Thyroid Repair and True Stress Resilience.

RESULTS: In just over 3 months, her health was completely restored. I still remember the visit where she reported “no more accidents.”  I felt the vulnerability of living as an adult with frequent accidents, and it really made an emotional impact.  I remember where we stood, and her vulnerable but happy smile.

She was energized, pain free, and every symptom of distress was gone.  After 40 years, and 3 months.  Three months of True Health and Mother Nature healed 40 years of disability.
