Hyperthyroidism

By Dr. Earl Conroy

In my 25+ years of working with thyroid patients I have found that Hyperthyroidism is almost always due to the presence of a virus, bacteria, Candida, fungus or fluke in the thyroid tissues. Most frequently it is a herpes virus.

Under certain, and increasingly common conditions, this pathogen will take up residence in your thyroid. Some of the conditions making this possible are a lack of iodine, zinc, B6, selenium, manganese, etc.; or due to mercury from amalgam fillings; or radiation from computers, microwaves, nuclear power plants; damage from medical scans, x-rays or drugs.

Harvesting and Drying Herbs

Harvesting

When harvesting plants and flowers you should have an attitude of thankfulness. Be happy for the bounty that is available. Always keep the area you are using pristine. We need to harvest plants which can be eaten and used. We are helping the seeds sow. Not harvesting plants can cause them to die off.

However, it is important not to over-harvest. If there is an area where you like to gather plants keep a log of where you go and then section it mind and jot down notes of where you plan to harvest the following year.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that affects more men than women. The word cardiomyopathy derives from cardio meaning heart, myo meaning muscle and pathy meaning disease. There are 3 types:

1. Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). This is the most common form. In dilated cardiomyopathy one or more of the heart chambers become enlarged. This causes the heart to become larger and the heart muscle weaker. The ability of the heart chambers to pump blood is diminished and less forceful. One in five cases of dilated cadiomyopathy are thought to have been inherited.

Allergy Solutions to Improve Air Quality in Your Home

If you are like me, there is a good chance that you live in a large city like Houston, New York, Chicago, or Miami. Obviously there are great benefits in terms of job opportunities and lots of choices in things to do. The down side for certain is the poor air quality.

Bad air quality often leads to increased allergy problems in children and adults alike. In a humid climate or a city without a lot of trees and grass, this can be even worse. It amazes me today, how many children have to receive allergy shots just so they can breathe easier and not have terrible headaches.

Canker Sores and Nutrition Recommendations

Canker sores are small, white swellings that develop into ulcers.

They normally appear on the tongue, on the lips, the gums, or on the insiders of the cheeks. These ulcers then are covered by a coagulated yellowish mixture of fluids, bacteria, and white blood cells.

The development of a canker sore may be preceded by a burning or a tingling sensation. They do, however, not form into blisters like cold sores (also called fever blisters) do. The cold sore, often confused with the canker sore, is caused by the herpes simples virus type 1. The canker sore, on the other hand, is an inflammation, rather than an infection.

Superlasik Safer Than Lasik

If your over the age of eighteen and need corrective lenses you can benefit from corrective vision surgery. The investment pays for itself with the high cost of eyeglasses. Recently discovered Superlasik eye surgery can even be done on patients who have thin corneas and were not candidates for Lasik surgery. Its also safer since minimal trauma is done to the cornea.

Patients leave with a new completeness and clarity with life because really, how we see things affects our total outlook on life. Also there is a quick recovery following this new procedure. Most patients are able to drive the next day and some even return to work. People leave feeling rejuvenated and young, and in reality who wouldn’t want that? What has been exciting is that this technology is even safer than Intralase or the all laser LASIK.

Diabetes and Nutrition Recommendations

Diabetes is a result of problems with the pancreatic hormone insulin. Insulin controls the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood and the rate at which glucose is absorbed into the cells. The cells need glucose to produce energy. In people with diabetes, glucose builds up in the bloodstream instead of being taken into and used by the cells, leading to hyperglycemia (abnormally high levels of glucose in the blood).

Eventually, hyperglycemia leads to damaged blood vessels which in turn may cause eye disease, heart disease, peripheral and autonomic neuropathy (nerve damage in the limbs and internal organs), and diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease).

Controlling Allergies

Many of us are bothered by allergies and are always fighting to diminish those irritants that cause their bothersome effects. Allergy symptoms can include watery eyes, runny noses and rashes that sometimes translate into full-blown hives. These and other symptoms can be brought about by a number of contaminants that infiltrate the very air that we breathe in our own homes. If you’re among those who are constantly being attacked by airborne allergens, there are some positive steps that you can take in order to reduce or eliminate the elements that are the catalysts to allergy attacks.

Dust or dust mites are the cause of many allergies, and must be eliminated from their most common breeding areas in order to find relief. Since they tend to live in warm and humid places, items such as beds, carpets and upholstered furniture are prime breeding grounds for dust mites. Living on the skin cells that people and their pets shed, they deposit their waste in all of the areas that they live, wreaking havoc on their victims causing allergic reactions.
