Hello i have just signed up to this site, having been reading up about thyroid problems and your posts.I dont want to insult anyone by what i want to say and i am not making light of your very real problems. i have had a blood test for this and was told that if the reading was the same next time i would be on tablets for the rest of my life.I was on the very low side of normal.I started taking better care of myself,but for some reason i craved bananas and i dont even like them, but i started eating them,to cut a long story short tonight i looked up are bananas good for you .
T o my amazement they regulate your thyroid ,lower blood pressure,produces tryptothan which makes serotonin that helps with low moods and depression.Has potassium which sorts out your circulation and also sorts your water levels and the carbohydrates sort out your sugar levels and iron which sorts out anemia., they also act as an antacid.and i have not had a problem with acid reflux since i started eating them either .
I have a great improvement in how i feel ,maybe it would help make some of you feel better.
Also one of your posts has a woman with hot flushes after coming off hrt.
When i was in the menopause i was drinking soya milk as the doctor advised me to cut out milk for chronic sinusitis.,when the women at the art class were discusing hot flushes all had the symtoms of flushing but not me.i also found out Japanese women didnt complain of them either as they eat tofu which is soya beans. I did stop taking soya for a while as i didnt like that eitherTHEN i got flushes.,so i went back on it the flushes stopped.
as hormones are the problem it wouldnt hurt to try these natural methods would it,please let me know what you think
