I have hypothyroidism, coeliac disease and associated hashimotos disease.. Recently I had hives which I associated with a stressful situation and then a cold weather change. The hives went but I am very slow to recover from a cold and I have a rash on the back of my scalp. so I now take pig thyroid from Thailand which can just be chewed so no fillers, coatings etc and is partly absorbed sub lingually..
What I am curious about is why we are not advised to take iodine as it is the raw material the thyroid has to work with and most of our modern diets are low in it. Also much of our water contains chlorine and fluoride, both halogens - each in turn prevents the uptake of the next halogen on the periodical table, and iodine is the one after those two!.
