Topics I've Started

Blog Drafts Private?

26 March 2014 - 08:18 AM

I noticed that my blog has been viewed when I stored it as a draft.  Is it available to the public before I publish it?  I guess that might be okay, but I would like to know about  it.  There may be an occasion where I wish to type one in somewhere else and transfer it in when complete instead of having it available for viewing while incomplete.

Mailbox Woes

15 February 2014 - 10:24 AM

I feel it is difficult both emotionally and physically to clean out my mailbox.  I noticed that I can't send a message to GFinDC.  I am guessing the box is full.  Can we do anything to expand the size of mailboxes, make it easier to delete the mail we don't want, and/or explain to me how you organize your mail?

Iodine Patch Test (To See If You Need Iodine Supplement) Uncorn People May Need This One.

13 February 2014 - 02:01 PM

Years ago, I got this idea from Dr. David William's newsletter.  At the time it really helped me.  I forgot all about it until I had my thyroid tested and discovered that I had low hormone levels. 


To see if you need more iodine:


Do after showering or washing for the day.

Take some topical iodine and paint a quarter size amount on your SKIN. 

Check the spot in 24 hours, if it is still there, forget about it.

If the spot has disappeared, you need an iodine supplement., or you washed or rubbed it away!

If one does the test for a few days, or begins supplements, the spot should absorb more slowly as time passes.  I had one go 2 or 3 days when I tried this years back.


If you need an iodine supplement I have been using Mother Earth Minerals, INC. and it has been well.  This is safe to use by mouth.  The topical (first aid) kind isn't safe by mouth.  That is important to note since it is poisonous!


I mentioned people that avoid iodized salt because of the magnesium stearate (corn product) in it.    If you don't use iodized salt, I think it is quite possible that you need iodine.  My current guess is that celiac disease causes difficulty absorbing iodine just as it does with other nutrients.  In my OWN (Natural Life Personhood) OPINION one would want to try adding iodine supplement before using drugs for low thyroid.  If you care to, ask your doctor first.  Your beliefs or circumstances may be different.  My thyroid problem was only borderline low, and not yet clinical.


I hope that others can avoid being deficient in iodine and that some thyroids can get back to work in a strong way. 





Finally Had A Complete Thyroid Panel.

02 February 2014 - 09:29 AM

Thyroid Panel was within range throughout.


.  Do I assume I never had an issue?  Or could there have been improvement since gluten free?  I had many symptoms and several people here told me to get tested and also a doctor that specializes in celiac told me to get it tested.  At any rate, I am glad that this, anyway, isn't being a problem for me.


Anyone had improvement in thyroid using supplements and diet alone?



Does Anyone See A Neurologist And What Do They Do For You.

21 January 2014 - 01:27 PM

I got told in another thread to see a neurologist.  Does anyone see a neurologist for their celiac.  I recall one on the summit talking about white lesions in the brain.  He was treating such things with diet and supplements.  I think that is probably rare, but would like to know more about it.


If you would care to PM me or post here, I would appreciate it.
