Congratulations with getting your hashimoto under control.
Why boron made you loose those pounds
so rapidly; my guess is its effect on the parathyroid (as important for the parathyroid as Iodine
is to the thyroid). And its effect on hormones.
"Boron is required for the maintenance of bone and normal blood levels of estrogen and testosterone; within eight days of supplementing boron women lost 40 percent less calcium, 33 percent less magnesium and less phosphorus through their urine.
Women getting boron supplementation had blood levels of estradiol 17B doubled to 1evels found in women on estrogen replacement therapy," the at 10 ppm; levels of testosterone almost doubles.
More is becoming known of the biochemical function of boron in human and animal tissues. Because boron affects steroid hormone metabolism in humans and animals, and because the response of experimental animals to boron deficiency seems to be enhanced by nutritional stressors that induce secondary hyperparathyroidism (i.e. magnesium deficiency and aluminum toxicity, it would not be surprising to find that boron affects major mineral metabolism via a regulatory role involving a hormone."
interesting, but also a warning of NOT using boric acid; "Years ago, boric acid was administered at 0.5 g/day to achieve weight loss. This dosage caused boric acid diarrhea, in addition to considerable deterioration of nutrient absorption."
