There are so many disorders (diseases) of the thyroid gland — hypothyroid (low, underactive or inactive thyroid), hyperthyroid (high or overactive thyroid), thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, enlarged thyroid, thyroiditis, goiter, etc. One can medically treat each of the above symptoms but will that cure the cause of the thyroid imbalance? Allopathic (Western) medicine prescribes one drug to boost an underactive thyroid, another drug to lower an overactive thyroid and another drug to cure the thyroid nodules. But expensive lab tests are needed, a different drug is used for each condition and the patient generally has to stay on that drug for life, with ever increasing doses (sometimes with side effects) just to maintain normal thyroid blood levels. Is this holistically healing the body or just creating a dependency?

Dr. Alfred Plechner says standard blood tests do not measure true thyroid function. The standard blood test only measures the amount of thyroid hormone level in the blood, not how much of the hormone is being utilized by the body. In other words, a body could have normal thyroid blood levels and still exhibit hypothyroid (low thyroid) symptoms. This is because the thyroid hormones in the blood are inactive or bound up. Dr. Plechner developed a special blood test to detect this—his Basic Endocrine-Immune One tests for cortisol, total estrogen, thyroid hormones T-3 & T-4, and IgA, IgM and IgG antibodies. By looking at ALL these factors and not just one blood thyroid level, he can holistically determine if the thyroid and adrenals are properly functioning in synergy with the brain.

Since the thyroid is a secondary gland, holistically we would first look at the primary glands that control the thyroid. These are the pineal, pituitary (master gland) and hypothalamus in the brain. There is an intricate balance and interdependency between the adrenals and thyroid gland and the glands in the brain. From our holistic perspectives, we feel to get to the source of any thyroid or adrenal problems, it only makes holistic sense to first make sure the glands in the brain are fully functioning. Unfortunately, there are no known drugs that can cross the blood/brain barrier to do this. But the brain receives nutritional ingredients across the blood/brain barrier every day to survive. These nutritional ingredients that can cross the blood/brain barrier can be found in whole food products.

Here is a case study on how bio-algae concentrates (Spirulina pacifica, Spirulina platensis, Dunaliella salina and astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis) helped our cat's body balance and normalize its  hypothyroid AND hyperthyroid conditions. Bio-algae concentrates will also help people's body balance and normalize any thyroid condition, in the same way that bio-algae concentrates helps pets.



Thyroid (Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid) Case Study

Connie was a stray who adopted us around 1990. We found out in October, 2002 (age approximately 16 'Fat' Connie w/dry kibbleyears) that she was hypothyroid, an unusual condition for cats, which accounted in part for her obesity. We thought it was just from her overeating when we had to leave dry food down all the time for an elderly, sick cat who died in July, 2002. We started giving Connie bio-algae concentrates in the fall of 2002 and by January 2003, her thyroid values were normal. We also switched her from dry kibble to canned and then raw food, starting in fall 2002. This also helped Connie slim down from a high of 16 lbs to 11 lbs, though she has gained some of that weight back due to inactivity (caused by severe arthritis). Even our holistic vet was amazed that we could get such a senior cat to reduce in weight.


Cats can be hard to switch to raw food and it took about a year with Connie. She also had digestive upsets with raw food that have now finally'Slimmer' Connie with normal thyroid resolved after treatment by veterinary intuitive Donna Starita and medical intuitive Madhu O'Toole. After one year of transition, Connie would  eat 100% raw food, but we still occasionally gave her canned food as well, to hide her supplements in. We fed her Artemis, which contains only meat, organs and fish--no vegetables or grains (which cats don't need anyway), Evanger's, ZiwiPeak, Weruva and Tiki Cat canned cat foods. At one point (20+ years old), Connie tested hyperthyroid, a common condition for elderly cats, however, with a combination of supplements (bio-algae concentrates and Standard Process Thytrophin PMG) and homeopaths, we normalized her thyroid again and it went back into the high normal range. We avoided the radioactive iodine treatment and Tapazole drug our vet recommended. Note that we used bio-algae concentrates to normalize her hypothyroid and hyperthyroid conditions. That's one of the benefits of using a truly holistic product, in addition to having no side effects. There is not one pill to correct a low thyroid and another pill to correct a high thyroid condition as in allopathic medicine. Bio-algae concentrates excel at helping the body normalize any glandular or hormonal imbalance whether too high or too low. Bio-algae concentrates simply supplied super nutrition to the body which feeds the brain. Once energized, the brain sends the right amount of nutrition to the thyroid and adrenal glands to bring them back into balance. It is the brain and body doing the "healing" and not the product. At approximately 21 years of age, Connie finally succumbed to kidney failure, never needing any further treatment for her hyperthyroid condition.


If you have any hormonal imbalances, especially thyroid, you must read our information on soy. The following is a typical story, reported in The Whole Soy Story book from someone in Boulder, Colorado:

Do you have menopausal symptoms, enlarged thyroid, hair falling out, low energy, foregtfullness, lack of mental clarity or depression?

"I am a healthy 48-year-old woman. An avid runner, I have followed primarily a vegetarian diet for over five years, and have always had excellent blood chemistry results...Last year, however, I addedjogger something significant to my regular diet of fruits, vegetables, beans and grains: soy products. I followed the conventional wisdom that this would alleviate early menopausal symptoms, keep my heart healthy, etc. I ate tofu daily, consumed soy milk in abundance, snacked on soy nuts...and looked for soy isoflavones in my supplements. Results: I now am facing surgery for a goiter (enlarged thyroid)...I have symptoms of thyroid damage. My skin, nails, hair are all suffering visibly. I have chest pain when I run. Worst of all my cholesterol has risen from 137 to 210 in the last six months. A nonsmoking, non-drinking vegetarian who eschews all dairy products simply cannot experience this kind of change in less than six months without some external factor."

There are many more stories like this, telling of a myriad of health problems caused by soy. An executive secretary in her 50's with thyroid problems tells of how the hidden soy added to the bread she was eating caused such severe forgetfulness that she could not perform her job. When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.


How did bio-algae concentrates do all this? Bio-algae concentrates simply supplied the body with nutrients of Vitamin A, B-complex, C, D, E and K, essential fatty acids of Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9, Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA content is similar to early mother's milk), Alpha-Linolenic Acids (ALAs), Dihomogamma-Linolenic Acid (DGLA), Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and more fatty acids, over 4,000 enzymes, 10 essential amino acids plus 10 non-essential ones, all known trace minerals and elements, antioxidants, phytonutrients, polysaccharides and thousands of other nutrients so the body could resume normal healthy thyroid function. Bio-algae concentrates did not treat the symptoms but holistically balanced the whole body. When the endocrine and immune systems are holistically balanced, everything will work like it should. Bio-algae concentrates are so revolutionary they are 100 years ahead of their time. Now that’s true holistic wellness!
