A few months back, I interviewed someone about her experience with thyroid disease and natural healing. I have a new update to share with you now! If you haven’t read the original story, go back and read it now.
Here’s the new interview:
Q1: Where was your health a few months ago, after having tried several alternative treatments? What options were you looking into at that point?
About two years ago I went to see an endocronologist who wanted to completely remove my thyroid because of a lump he found on the thyroid itself, and because of swelling in the glands in my neck. After that diagnosis I decided to see a doctor who focused on more natural methods of treatment, like eating a wheat- and sugar-free diet and taking vitamin
supplements to heal the body.
A few months ago, my health had improved to the point that the only real issue I was dealing with was soreness in my lymph glands. The glands were swollen and sore to the touch, even though the lump on my thyroid could no longer be felt. The soreness also restricted my ability to talk at length and intensified when I tried to sing.
Q2: What did you end up trying? What changes did you see in your health and how quickly did they occur?
At this point Kate introduced me to kombucha. I had never heard of it, and frankly my initial reaction was that it was really weird, (especially the little floaty things in the bottle) but since it is a natural detoxifier I got past the yuck factor and tried it. My first impression of kombucha was that it tasted somewhat like soda. We drove to the nearest health food store and I purchased 14 bottles to give it a fair try over the next two weeks.
My plan was to drink one full bottle per day and see if anything happened. By day two I noticed that the swelling in the lymph glands was going down. By day five I noticed that my voice was stronger. By the end of the two week period, I was able to sing again without straining my voice which is something I had not been able to do in over three years.
After the two week supply ran out, I purchased an additional two week supply and began to make my own kombucha with a recipe Kate shared with me. It took some effort to understand the process but it has been well worth it financially. My husband has also been drinking a bottle a day and the eczema on his skin has really improved. We are hoping it will completely disappear.
Q3: What have your doctors said about your health since you’ve made these changes?
I went to see the doctor last week and he was really pleased at the progress I had made in the past few months. He could tell the swelling in my glands was reduced. His comments were very encouraging.
Q4: What will your next move be?
After talking at great length with both the medical doctor and my dentist, my next step will be to have two silver fillings removed from my teeth. We are hoping that the removal of these mercury-based fillings will be reduce the strain on my lymph glands.
Q5: What advice would you give to someone in your shoes (a few months ago)?
If you sincerely want your health to improve, keep your mind open to trying new things. There are many natural products that promote healing so don’t give up until you find something that works for you.
Thanks! What a wonderful testimony!
