September 2, 2019 - Thyroid Misdiagnosis and Malfunctions

Thyroid Misdiagnosis and Malfunctions

September 2, 2019 Puzzle Piece
Your thyroid is under attack and it keeps getting worse.  Traditional Medicine keeps treating the symptoms and is not getting down to the cause.  Many physicians miss the diagnosis altogether because the blood picture may be in normal ranges.  As people get sicker, the norms keep getting spread out in both directions.

Men are especially ignored in this arena. They may be suffering from some of the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction but not diagnosed and treated. Typically, these symptoms include fatigue beyond a normal workday tired, heart palpitations, depression, hypersensitivity to cold or excessive sweating, aching joints, trouble concentrating, brain fog and weight gain or weight loss for unexplained reasons.

The symptoms are universal for both men and women. But men have symptoms that are unique to them. These can include:  Reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, thinning of the outer third of the eyebrow, hair loss, muscle weakness, increases size of the testicles and/or low temperature.
You must look at the whole picture to see the problem and have a working solution. The whole picture is the Six Steps to Wellness or to start with, which of the Six Interferences are active?

Fluorine, Chlorine and Bromine compete for Iodine on the binding sites that allow for thyroxine to be formed and activated.  These toxic elements are more abundant and common than ever.

Also mostly ignored by mainstream medicine, numerous studies prove that severely toxic industrial molecules like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and bisphenol A (BPA) disrupt thyroid function.1,2,3

Other research has discovered that people with higher blood concentrations of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) — a chemical used in non-stick cookware, as well as stain- and water-resistant coating for carpets and fabrics — have higher rates of thyroid disease.

Research on heavy metals demonstrates them to be problematic in many thyroid conditions.  Mercury, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic and lead found in seafood, dental amalgams, environmental pollution and vaccines are also among the worst offenders.

Most medical doctors don’t recognize the early stages of thyroid dysfunction and wait until is a full blown disease like severe hypothyroid, hyperthyroid or Hashimoto’s Disease. Usually the symptoms are treated with a drug like Synthroid.

Holistic Medical Doctors and Functional Practitioners rarely prescribe Synthroid, because they feel is only masks the problem. It can also cause a lot of side effect, such as bone fractures, joint pain, irregular heartbeat, fatigue, muscle weakness, insomnia, temporary hair loss, irritability and vomiting.

Detoxification is the place to start.  Test for Opti-Metals and Opti-Enviro Detox.  Usually at least 5 drops of each once to twice per day.  Opti-Iodine at one per day to help the body to reduce the Fluorine, Chlorine and Bromine burden.  Opti-Thyroid may be necessary and should test positive if indicated at one to two times per day.

Water fasting and Ketogenic programs can be very helpful.  Marc Harris, MD, ND, PhD3 is a leading authority on both and will cover them extensively at hour Homecoming 2020 in Phoenix, AZ on January 17-19.

Many in Functional evaluation and treatment think good sea salt and other natural mineral salts are therapeutic and necessary in a good diet.

A deficiency in selenium is problematic to your thyroid. Low selenium causes an intolerance of iodine in your body for many people. The best food source of selenium is Brazil nuts. We recommend 200 mcg of selenium a day and or several Brazil nuts.  Each nut contains around 100 mcg. Two to four per day is adequate and very tasty. Opti-Iodine contains selenium and molybdenum.
Dr Harris will also cover Melatonin, in depth at Homecoming 2010.  It is best taken just before bed as it is a well-known sleep support and is a thyroid protector? Dr testing demonstrates adrenal involvement or immune compromise, test for Opti-Adrenal and Opti-Immune VRL.


We must detoxify to get the toxic poisons out of the body. If the patient’s energy is extremely low, we much evaluate the mitochondria as well, and support with Opti-MitoForce if indicated. 


You can use a repeated muscle test to measure for mitochondrial compromise.  Test an intact muscle or group of muscles, such as the extended arm.  You should be able to test this same muscle or group up to ten times, rapidly, without any ensuing weakness.  If a patient weakens to the same test before the tenth repetition, give them Opti-MitoForce and retest.  Open a capsule and dump the synergistic formulation under the tongue.  It will make an almost immediate improvement.  One capsule two to three times per day can make an incredible difference in a person’s energy and sense of wellbeing.
