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. It’s not what we eat, the water we drink, the supplements we take or the
exercise we engage in. It’s intangible. And don’t get me wrong all of that is important. But this is the elephant in the room. The thing people don’t want to address, or thing they don’t even
know is relevant to address.
Meet Julie. She has lost 50 pounds in the last 5 ½ months. Starting out at the beginning of March Julie would say she was:
Tired much of the time,
In terrible pain in many places in her body,
Unable to exercise,
She weighed the most she had ever weighed in her life. And had been using ibuprofen to manage her pain.
She is currently 8 pounds below her goal weight. How has this happened?

The average thyroid gland weighs about as much as a tablespoon of almond butter. But the thyroid gland, unlike almond butter, has an almost infinite impact on the way your body functions.
Every single cell in your body has thyroid receptors. If you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, there are things in your body that just won’t work. Like an unplugged toaster, it’s not going to work no matter what you do. It will only work if you plug it in - just like your cells, they will only work if they’ve got some thyroid hormones plugged in.

A friend of mine told me about this new book about a month ago. It was by a neurologist I have great respect for, David Perlmutter. I have heard him speak in person several times and basically trust anything he has to say. I nearly fell off my chair when I read some of the things he was saying. There was a new marker - using an old test - that could reveal information that could help me help my patients even more. I got so excited, I started testing all my current patients for it.
All of these conditions have this marker in common:
If you’re like most people during the pandemic, it resulted in one common thing - weight gain. And why does it seem so hard to lose? Even impossible? It’s probably because most of the time people are trying to exercise it off, or just eat less. Sometimes even changing their diet but without much success. There are so many recommendations out there, it can be hard to know what to do.
Symptoms that often go with low energy:
difficult weight loss
cold hands and feet
(The list could go on and on and on…)
If you have any of these symptoms, you are probably suffering from Cellular inflammation.
For me it started in middle school. It was awful. It could last for months on end. And I had no idea that I was just making it worse. It is so common that it is likely that either you or someone in your family has it. And there is such a simple solution, but almost no one knows about it.
