Nutrition Diagnostics - Thyroid Health

Thyroid Health


We have seen there is a major focus holistically to coincide medical management of thyroid conditions to give iodine drops and selenium.
While we recognise that both are important trace minerals, supporting thyroid health is a little more strategic than that.

What society is used to is a transactional treatment through medical indoctrination of the biomedical model of disease.

1. Symptom
2. Test - palpate, blood test and scan
3. Label
4. Treatment - herb, supplement, drug or diet

The purpose for orthodox supplementation is to biomedically treat the thyroid with iodine (drops and seaweed) and selenium (nuts).


These minerals are already found in F2 and F3.


Our health model looks at why these numbers are out of balance, otherwise you are forever eating seawood for iodine while ending up with mercury toxicity.

As you know we complement this model but strengthen it with health model philosophy.

1. Extensive health assessment and blood/urine chemistry
2. Referral for Total Dental Revision
3. Medical collaboration
4. Data review and strategy delivery
5. Interim test review
6. Retest blood/ urine chemistry

There are fundamentally 3 things that can impact thyroid health:

1. Toxins - dental (mercury and microbe) and radiation
2. Diet - sugar, alcohol, caffeine
3. Protein and thus iron status


Hashimotos and Graves' Disease
- mercury seeps into the jaw which has an embryological connection with the thyroid, blocking T4 to T3 and then usually resulting in an elevated TSH. In some cases, treating the thyroid may overlook mercury's presence. Always note dental history.
Do not overdose on Iodine (Potassium Iodide or Lugol's). When protein is low and mercury is present, too much iodine can create thyroid disorders by blocking receptor sites.  Breast Cancer and Iodine deficiency have also been linked, but what if mercury is really behind the scene? Always look for Mercury's footprints in women who are of child bearing age, low iron or fast losing protein through menopause.


My thyroid, liver, iron, B12 and iodine levels were out of range.

What You Should Not Do

No seafood
No seawood - dulse, chorella
No dental amalgam
No Dental infection
Be careful using iodine drops or lugol's as we have seen hypothyroidism develop due to the blockage of iodine receptor sites if protein and iron stores are poor.

Give article and show R. Hanelt case.

What Should You Do

I would work on  digestion and protein intake as I believe initially it was set too low.


If you correct the stomach acid (salt, biozyme and biogest) you improve protein assimilation and bowel regulation.

This is all a protein issue. When protein it also becomes iron and mercury risk.



Have to get his total protein up to correct the foundation to selenium and iodine.



A body that is low in protein will automatically lower the serum calcium level while keeping the PTH quiet.

Why? Well, the body can’t afford to have a higher level of calcium when there isn’t sufficient protein to bind it.

The risk of calcification rises as connective tissue breaks down to supply the body’s requirement for amino acids when the total protein is low. Taking this a step further helps to understand why thyroid activity might slow as protein status gets depleted.

Thyroid uses up a lot of protein, and it would cause too great a risk for further breakdown if the thyroid activity was allowed to remain high while the protein status suffers.

We have seen people's thyroid bounce after TDR. Through medical managment with their doctor we have been able to stabilise by gettin to the bottom of toxity and correcting protein and iron stores.
