I have been having severe Angina for last five weeks. A bit of history will help.....
Last year after my annual check up my doctor, MD/ND, asked me stop taking Iodine because he said that my urine test shows that my body has retained a good amount of Iodine. I have total faith in him, because he uses all natural ways to heal his patients. I did not take Lugol's for thirteen months and I started having very very dry and scratchy skin, my left thigh and left foot heel started having pain everyday, walking became harder. I was given Magnesium shots which made me feel great, but my thigh and knees hurt even more after a week or so after the Mg shots. I told my doc about this and he suggested that I take Nystatin to clean my gut, which I took for one week and stopped.The GTT test I had done showed that my Pancreas is dumping a lot Insulin even though I do not eat sugar at all.
After doing so many things to get rid of the Angina I came across this old post.
Arterosclorosis and Hypothyroidism....By Bling
Interesting blog. It seems i have a right to be concerned about my arteries but luckily i'm taking Armour. I'd never heard of mucin before. I wish i'd never reduced my Armour and will be gradually increasing again. Interestingly they also recommend the l-proline and l-lysine plus other stuff.
Some people are sub-clinical and are not aware they have an underactive thyroid. Everyone should take their temps and make sure, otherwise at risk. It didn't matter whether the cholesterol was high or not. The trouble is i have to stop the natural thyroid (Armour) when fasting. If fasting does rebalance the endocrine, as witnessed by many of the fasting gurus, the problem would be solved, but can i take the risk going without it as it could take several moderate to long fasts. And it is also regulating my calcium.
It is a concern considering they say this mucin rises sharply when meds are reduced or stopped.
I'm in a quandry. Any advise.
pos So after reading the link in the above message, I went back to Lugol's started with 5 drops and then 10 drops and in two days my Angina has almost gone. I had hard time putting my left heel on the floor in the morning till I warmed up, but that condition went away this morning. I also had a great feeling overall all day. Things seemed clear and I became hopeful.
I had my full check up today and the EKG, BP etc. looks great. My blood and urine test will arrive on Friday.
I intend to up my intake of Lugol's starting tomorrow to 20 drops and then 40 drops etc. I do take the companion supplements at night, which are Vitamin C, D, Niacin, Selenium, Proline and Lysine. I ahve also added Hawthorne Berry Syrup to build the heart muscle.
Sorry for the long post, but I want all Curezonees to continue taking Iodine supplements and not make the mistake I made.
Thank you all.
During the 2nd Session of the 74th Congress in 1936, the United States Senate published Document #264, which really laid the problems facing American nutrition on the line. Verbatim extracts from Document 264 are provided at the bottom of this page, but for the specific purposes of this report, here are the three most important paragraphs.
"The alarming fact is that foods [fruits, vegetables and grains] now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us - no matter how much of them we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them."
"The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren't worth eating as food...Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
"It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack or one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives."
So sixty-eight years ago, the American Government knew full well the problems facing the people, but the stuffed-shirt medical fraternity did absolutely nothing to help. In fact, driven ever onwards by the extravagant fiscal needs of pharmaceutical shareholders, medical 'science' and its subordinate doctors stood reality on its ear, and proceeded to steadily undermine what little good health the general community had left.
Learned doctors published papers on the 'potassium-sodium balance needed by all humans', when a quick field trip to almost any Indian Reservation would have reversed their absurd findings in seconds. More and more sodium found its way into every kind of food imaginable, and blood pressures started to rise sharply. By the nineteen-forties, relatively new diseases such as arthritis, hypertension and angina started to climb through the roof, to be met with a veritable shock wave of expensive 'patent medicines' to help with the new 'disease' problems.
