Re: hasimoto's thyroiditis

Thyroid disease — When there’s not enough iodine to bind with cell membranes, it allows enzymes called peroxidases (which can damage those membranes) to wreak havoc and cause autoimmune
disease, such as thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s or Grave’s). In fact, Dr. Abraham has several cases of both thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism (not just hypothyroidism) that have corrected after sufficient iodine/iodide supplementation. For over a century, high doses of iodine have helped both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Many doctors fear giving too much iodine will cause Hashimoto’s to worsen. But this usually isn’t the case.

My sister has Hashimoto's and started on the iodine last week.  Her goiter has already decreased significantly, and she has been on the synthroid for ten years.  There was a good article I read last week about how synthroid trashes the thyroid, I will dig it up, I forwarded it to her on my work computer.  If I have time tomorrow I will post if for you here.
