HCG – Thyroid and Hashimoto’s talk
Day three was tough for me. Wanted to give up- only on day 3!! Day 4 and 5 were much easier- also I reduced my HCG Injections dose to 166iu’s and my hunger was better. Looking back now 175iu’s was probably just the wrong dose entirely for me. Most people seem to do best with a dose around 150iu’s and I found once I got to my 4th round, that 125iu’s was the best “no hunger” dose for me.
I know this is totally changing the subject, but that’s what I did in my HCG vlog, so I’m going to do it here too. :)-
For any out there who have Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease, it’s possible you may not know that iodine, while an important and valuable thing to have in our bodies, is something to avoid until you get your immune system under control and it stops attacking you. Iodine can and will cause further autoimmune attacks, causing further bad body symptoms and further destruction of your thyroid. I have experienced this numerous times first hand (basically what happens is, if I eat seaweed or anything with Iodine, I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck about a half hour later and have to sleep it off for several hours afterwards). The logical reason why this happens though is explained really well in this book by Dr. Alexander Haskell called Hope for Hashimoto’s. It’s the only book I know of that focuses solely on Hashimoto’s instead of just general low thyroid/hypothyroid issues. The book is appropriate too for anyone whose been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism because if you do your research, you’ll find the leading cause of Hypothyroidism in the United States is actually Hashimoto’s. So if you have been diagnosed hypothyroid, you very likely have Hashimoto’s too- why don’t you know this? Because doctors rarely test for it. But it’s a different animal than just Hypothyroidism itself and should be treated differently as a result.
