    This is an excellent and amazing book, and my personal experiences support much of what it says about Thyroid, GERD (acid stomach), Obesity, Diabetes, etc...

    Well this is a topic that intensely interests me because my parathyroids died when I had my thyroid removed for cancer. I was in ICU for 9 days in tetany because your parathyroids control calcium balance and calcium is essential for every muscle cell in your body i.e. heart, veins, intestines, lungs, esophagus, bladder, etc. Think of a muscle cell like a long skinny canoe and it can not move at all without calcium as the oars. So I have to take massive doses of Calcium every day to even maintain a miserable existence with muscle pain. In the meantime, my bones are getting thicker and heavier and more brittle because they don't have the hormones that trigger the breakdown of bone to balance blood calcium. So when I have a longer second than I do now, I will be very interested in what they have to say....

    Hows that for a long, boring story!! LOL [​IMG]

    wow... so sorry that happened to you! You are kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place, literally....

    You can get the book pretty cheaply if you have a "Kindle" reading device. I wish I had one!​

    I think the number # thing I've done to improve all of the things listed that I suffer from is MAGNESIUM supplements.

    Today I decided to switch from my 'chemical' multi-vitamin to a 'whole food' multi. I'm researching which one would be best to get.
