How to know if your thyroid is causing your symptoms

Thyroid testing is an insufficient mode of diagnosis in over 50% of hypothyroid cases. How can I make such a bold statement? The fact is, in conventional medicine, thyroid testing consists of checking for either TSH alone, or TSH and T4. TSH is a hormone that is released by your brain. Not your thyroid. And T4 is considered the inactive of the thyroid hormones. There are two problems with only checking these two numbers. Read more

True healing can happen when you do this one thing

There is something I hear over and over and have considered it relevant for years now. There is one obvious experience I’ve had of my own. This one thing is something of doubt and skepticism for many people. I happen to think it’s the most essential thing to healing now, more than I ever have before.
