You should avoid removal of your thyroid at all costs. If it is removed then you will be on allopathic meds for life -- very expensive and one heck of a moneystream for the drugs companies involved.
To cure yourself of goiter there is alot you can do. From my own experience goiter is causd by both lack of anti-oxidants and minerals in the body and lack of iodine. To cure yoursef you should follow the advice on supplementing lugols iodine or iodoral here:
The reason you have goiter is probably because you lack one particular anti-oxidant. When the thyroid creates T3 and T4 it converts Thyroglobulin(stored iodine) to T3 and T4 using an enzyme called Thyroglobulin Peroxidase or TPO. During this conversion hydrogen peroxide, a free radical, is always produced. One particular version of glutathione is critical for the removal of the HP free radicals -- called glutathione peroxidase. So if your body lacks this anti-oxidant then the HP free radicals will build up to large amounts and attack the TPO and change its protein. The immune system will then attack the TPO and the thyroid cell creating damage, swelling, nodules and goiter. So to remedy this you must take supplements and minerals that will help you to produce more glutathione peroxidase.
That's why you should be on the Iodine Protocol(as recommended by Drs Brownstein, Abraham and Flechas).

Lastly, find a proper thyroid-literate and iodine-literate doctor to help you if you can.
Hi Grizz...Yes, I love Lugol's Iodine. I've been studying it for years.
I even know the full history of iodine use in medicine -- over 160 years of use. It was used right up to the Second WW -- medical doctors regularly used it in doses of up to 2000 mgs per day(that's 320 drops of 5% LI per day) for many diseases. Now the FDA says taking more than 2 mgs a day is poison(due to the Wolf-Chaikoff research report which came out in 1948). Can you believe that bula-bula? Dr Guy Abraham and friends, through his own iodine research, completely trashed and disproved the W - C report in 2005. His research was completely ignored which is why everyone is still so scared of supplementing iodine. The reason that some people have a reaction to supplementing iodine nowadays is because of our crap supermarket diets. The food before WW2 was pretty good. But after WW2 -- that was when the food and agri cartels went bad on us.
I wrote the Iodine doc in note form for easier reading and understanding and just put it up on my Google docs and set the permissions to share the link. My mission was to educate people on the truth and usefulness of iodine.
Been taking higher Lugol's Iodine everyday for over 10 years and I have no aiments or disease to speak of. I'm 65 y o by the way.
Grizz...Sure, go ahead and use those articles. If it helps people with their diseases, I'm all for it.
i study alot more than just iodine. Here's some random info that I've found out that you might find interesting. This will be in note form to save room -- you can perhaps run with it and do your own validation and research.
*Iodine is strongly protective towards the lungs(so are sulfur compounds like Taurine, Cysteine, DMSO and MSM).
*Want to lose weight? Taking iodine daily makes fat and protein metabolism and excretion more efficient in the body. Many people who are overweight find that they lose weight fast when they take higher dose iodine.
*I regularly use a nebulizer with either lugol's iodine(two drops in water in the neb cup) or 1.5% hydrogen peroxide. This is very useful for lung diseases like fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, aspergillus or candida, pneumonia, asthma, flu etc. It is the only way to directly attack pathogens in the lungs.You can also nebulize other nutrients like magnesum chloride, sodium bicarbonate, and colloidal silver in the same way. Generally, whenever you use a nebulizer you also avoid all the possible unpleasant gut side-effects from oral intake.
*You can cure tuberculosis using kerosene(lamp oil) with a fine mist sprayer or with a nebulizer. In 1914, Dr Charles Oscar Frye brought out a pamphlet/book on how to cure yourself of TB by simply inhaling kerosene using a fine mist sprayer three times a day. See here. By the way, modern medicine still has no cure for TB which is caused by mycobacteria which is a bacteria that has fungal-like behaviour that is similar to spore-producing spirochetes.
*There are many testimonials on how supplementing kerosene(lamp oil) successfully kills and completely eradicates many cancers. Turpentine is very similar to kerosene. Google "kerosene cancer" for more evidence and testimonials.
*I regularly supplement pure gum turpentine(1 tspn a day). It's the best intestinal cleanser and blood purifier that I know. It kills everything bad and does not affect your good gut bacteria. Been usng turps like this for over 3 years.
*Before WW2, a drug called iodo-niacin was successfully used for heart disease. The pill consisted of just 50 mgs niacin plus 120 mgs potassium iodide. No side-effects.
*The best way to heal adrenal fatigue is to supplement sea salt(with lots of water), milk thistle(450mgs twice a day), pantethine(1200mgs/day), pantothenic acid(500mgs/day), Vitamin C(3000mgs/day) and liquorice extract, Iodine + companion nutrients will also be needed if the thyroid is affected.
*Supplementing larger dose LI can also cure insulin dependent diabetes. See this link.
* The best nutrients for detoxing poisons or xenobiotics(not heavy metals) such as fungal or bacterial waste toxins are: milk thistle, ALA, Sodium Molybdate, Selenium(makes glutathione), cholestyramine(with prescription?), acetyl L cysteins, MSM, Fulvic acid and Magnesium Chloride(as Mag Oil),
* Take a natural concentrated mineral drop(CMD) supplement every day to get ALL your minerals. Vitamins can't work in the body without enzymes and coenzymes(made with trace minerals). All food lacks minerals now. Google "CMD minerals".
* One of the best herbs I know all about is Chanca piedra. It grows wild in my garden as a weed here in the Philippines where I live and I take it regularly as a decoction or tea. This herb lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, lowers blood sugar, lowers blood fat, reduces excess calcium in the blood, dissolves and removes gallstones and kidney stones and is a strong antiviral(cures Hepatitis B). When I took it for my own systemic candida problem it seemed to also have anti-fungal effects as well. Chanca piedra is currently being researched for its beneficial effects against HIV AIDS and cancer. See this link.
*BHT(ButylatedHydroxyToluene) can cure Hepatitis C and helps against cancers. It's a remarkable anti-oxidant. See this link.
*Only 4% to 8% of topically applied lugols iodine is ever absorbed through the skin into the blood. But when you combine LI with DMSO then 80% of the LI will be absorbed directly into the blood because of DMSO's unique transdermal carrier effect. This is also an easy way to efficiently disinfect any topical skin area or ailment because DMSO + Iodine travels directly through all the cell layers in the skin to the blood -- thus completely disinfecting this sub-epidermal skin region as well and eradicating your skin disease. DMSO is dirt cheap. When you apply DMSO + lugols iodine topically its like having an injection of iodine directly into your blood (without the pain or cost). I successfully use LI + DMSO like this all the time. From Dr Stanley Jacob's research, generally DMSO will exert its unique transdermal carrier effect on any water soluble chemical that has a molar weight of less than 3000. It should therefore also work transdermally for colloidal silver, magnesium chloride, LI, MSM, other minerals etc
I've always believed that a highly focused protocol will successfully cure disease. But what you have to know and learn is exactly what causes diabetes. From my own research, and to keep it short -- bacteria, viruses and fungus can contribute to diabetes, as can heavy metals and poisons, gluten, casein, excess dietary calcium, halides and too much refined sugar from the diet.
Some while ago I stumbled across some suppressed research - how to actually cure diabetes type 2. Here it is:
The above research -- showing that chromium and vanadium actually can cure diabetes -- has been known about through research since the 1950s and it has been successfully suppressed and put in the closet by the drugs companies.
For diabetes I would also probably take lugols iodine, magnesium chloride(500 mgs twice a day), Vitamin D(3000 iu per day)and vitamin A(10,000 iu per day). Both chromium and vanadium should also be taken at higher dosages -- each should be taken at 1000 mcgs - 2000 mcgs every day. Don't take RDA dosages if you want a cure, take the proper recommended orthomolecular dosags that are tried and proven to work. If you are trusting RDA dosages then you are trusting the drugs companies and the FDA...and that never works out well for any sick individual.
I've also noticed how people with diabetes 2 can also have circulatory problems, heart problems, eye problems, neuropathy, high LDL or low HDL cholesterol and liver problems. Alot of this relates to the pancreas producing too much insulin and the pancreatic beta cells rapidly dying off with the strain of it all. So, in the later stages of diabetes, you can get digestive problems as well and suddenly become too thin with too much rapid weight loss(critical digestive enzymes are also produced by the beta cells which are being wiped out). Insulin, as most people know, does much more than just regulate sugar in the body. So if you can properly regulate the insulin back down to normal levels again, all those other serious affiliated problems should just disappear. I watched a good friend wither away and die from her own diabetes 2 problem. I watched her turn from an extremely attractive and vivacious woman to a skeleton in less than 2 years. She was hoping for a heart transplant but in the end she died of a heart attack.
One herb that I would also strongly recommend for diabetes is Chanca piedra. Supplement the wildcrafted tea form of CP and avoid the capsule form. This one lowers blood sugar, lowers blood lipids, lowers blood pressure, removes excess calcium from the blood, dissolves kidney stones and gallbladder stones and also is strongly anti-viral(it cures Hepatitis B).
