I have a long and sordid history with my Thyroid. I have had it tested multiple times, because I have all the symptoms, but for years the tests came back saying nothing was wrong. Enter my natural health phase, and through my research, I realized that just because what they were testing came back fine didn’t mean there wasn’t something wrong. When I went to my doctor and asked that they test not just what my thyroid was putting out, but what was happening with the hormones, we found that there was a conversion problem. So, although my thyroid makes enough hormone, my body isn’t getting enough of what it needs. I am currently on NT Thyroid, which is a generic for Armour thyroid (aka dessicated pig thyroid)–but I started using oils last week so that I can stop taking it. So far, I’m avoiding my mid-afternoon crash, which is awesome, and I’m not craving sugar at all either, which is another excellent plus. I’ll keep you posted on my progress, as I expect it will take a bit of time to fully kick in. In the meantime, here’s what I’m using:
I put everything in a little roller bottle, and just keep it in my pocket. Multiple times a day, I pull it out and put in right on my thyroid area.
I’m also taking 2 drops of Frankincense in a capsule twice a day, and drinking Lemon oil in my water. I’m considering adding Myrrh into my regimen too. Doing more research.
