  • The Yeast Infection No More book has literally saved my life. After years of getting no help from the established "medical profession" and getting sicker and afflicted by pain mood swings and depression, I bought your book and in less than5 weeks my chronic muscle aches and joint pain, caused by my candida yeast infection, have disappeared, and I literally tossed away my cane that I have been using for years. I couldn't believe it, it was nothing short of a miracle. I still can't believe it. Now, months later, the depression has also vanished. I no longer cry with no reason and I feel happier and energized. I am sure the protocols in your book have saved untold thousands of people like me from suffering and pain and "given us our lives back." I will never understand why don�t doctors tell us or investigate more on the subject of candidiasis. Two of my friends, one of them a naturopath had recommended that I try your program. And just like that, I was cured and liberated from years of misery. I have recommended your book to numerous people and all have received a great deal of relief. If only I had been told about it sooner, it would have saved me years of pain and exhaustion. I really tried everything. After 2 months on your program, people say that I look10 years younger, and they are right! Thank you very much for everything you have done for me! ◆◆◆ http://scamcb.com/index7/pdf

  • It's been ten months without a yeast infection. More than that, for the past couple of months I only had one migraine attack, comparing to six a week as I used to. I also very often suffered from runny nose and acne on my forehead. Since I started your program, it's been like a miracle. My acne disappeared in less than 2 weeks, I lost 10 pounds, and the flu like symptoms I often use to suffer from are also a thing of the past. I feel so young and empowered and I would have never believed there was a natural solution for my problems, if I was told a year ago. I wish everybody knew about this method. There are so many hopeless women and men out there with candida yeast infections. I know I will never have to go through that again. ➤➤ http://ishbv.com/index7/pdf

  6. 6. Introduction When I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism back in 2006, I never thought I would ever feel like myself again – the outgoing, optimistic person who was always there for everyone, ready to offer advice or a kind word when needed. What was left of the ambitious, optimistic woman and mother, when I could no longer regain my composure after a bad moment at work, or even show the faintest smile to my loving husband and children? Hypothyroidism can make a middle-aged woman feel 30 years older and struggle with weight gain and mood swings – I’ve been there. However, this condition can be reversed and made easy to live with – I’ve been there too, and I have stayed that way for the past six years. Health is far more valuable than any kind of fortune, be it our hard-earned money or a literal mountain of gold.

  7. 7. Chapter 1: Thyroid Anatomy: How Does the Endocrine System Work? The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the lower part of your neck, around the Adam’s apple and right below the larynx, also known as your voice box. Part of the endocrine system, the thyroid gland is responsible for a variety of metabolic, biochemical and neurological processes powering up the intricate organic mechanisms in the human body. The average thyroid weighs about 1 ounce and enlarges during menstruation and pregnancy – bear in mind that a woman’s thyroid is slightly heavier than the average male thyroid. The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Hypothyroid-Immediate-Action-Plan-Energizedebook/dp/B00HZEBDXM/ Copyright © 2012 Elizabeth Hungerford
  8. 8. Chapter 2: Thyroid Hormones Iodine and L-tyrosine (an amino acid) are needed in the making of T3 and T4. Probably the most important function of thyroid hormones is metabolism regulation, which relates to the apparently inexplicable weight gain that comes with hypothyroidism. In case of an underactive thyroid, deficient hormone production also slows down metabolism (the entirety of biochemical reactions that support an organism, particularly the process of converting food into energy – lipid and carbohydrate metabolism).Metabolism also influences the rate at which your body burns calories, which is essential in weight loss, and also one of the reasons why some of us burn more or fewer calories than others while doing the same exercises.

  9. 9. Chapter 3: What is Hypothyroidism? The term “hypothyroidism” is pretty self-explanatory and makes us think of an underactive thyroid – so far, so good. But how does an underactive thyroid affect your physiology, metabolism and overall well-being? Back in the old days before the diagnosis, I remember getting home in an unbearable state of exhaustion, with no energy left to take a shower or read a bedtime story to my daughters. I would often fall asleep in my work outfit with my makeup on, only to wake up on the following day with the illusion of being fully recovered.

  10. 10. Chapter 4: Other Conditions Related to Hypothyroidism Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Hyper and hypothyroidism are hormonal imbalances. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, however, is an autoimmune disease that usually encompasses features and symptoms specific to both hyper and hypothyroidism. Hashimoto is NOT a hormonal disorder. Note the difference between their names as well: hypothyroidISM, thyroidITIS. In case of Hashimoto, your immune system doesn’t recognize your thyroid tissue as part of your body and therefore attacks it in the delusional attempt to keep the rest of your body healthy. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is a disease (sickness), whereas hypothyroidism is a condition (a physical or mental state of being).

  11. 11. Chapter 5: Risks and Complications of Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto Like any other condition, both hypothyroidism and Hashimoto can have serious consequences if left untreated. Doing regular blood tests and following your prescription should prevent these complications, although knowing the risk factors and being informed will help you make better decisions in a difficult scenario. To put it bluntly, all individuals with hypothyroidism are at risk for mental and physical complications.

  12. 12. Chapter 6: Beating Hypothyroidism There are a few ways to treat hypothyroidism, some more effective than the others – which is, in the end, a matter of personal opinion. I will talk about all available treatment options and let you decide which one is best for you (although I would be most flattered if my story convinced you to try the natural way!). Generally, if you don’t seem to find anything that will make you feel better, you can feel free to try different treatments as long as your doctors approve them. However, despite the fact that the most effective treatments consist of natural hormones (natural desiccated porcine thyroid), you’ll still feel like there’s something missing, like there’s more you can do to make you feel even better. The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Hypothyroid-Immediate-Action-Plan-Energizedebook/dp/B00HZEBDXM/ Copyright © 2012 Elizabeth Hungerford
  13. 13. Chapter 7: Treatment Plan: Diet and Natural Supplements Nutrition is 75% responsible for the way we look and feel – pollution and lifestyle account for the remaining 25%. In fact, there’s a high chance your thyroid problems were caused by certain nutritional imbalances and poor lifestyle choices, such as a diet that’s low in iodine and high in sugar (carbohydrates) or fats. Stress also takes cortisol levels through the roof, damaging your endocrine system in the long run.

  14. 14. Chapter 8: Hypothyroidism and Weight Loss The “secret” to successful weight loss is to avoid food that is bad for your thyroid – which honestly took me a while to realize. Counting calories is also important once you’ve clearly established the list of good foods to choose from (which I will provide for you), although you have to accept it’s still going to be a bit more difficult to lose weight. Avoid sugar and refined foods Cortisol and insulin are the two hormones in charge with the assimilation of these types of food. If you consume them regularly, you can develop type II diabetes without even realizing. You might say you don’t eat many sweets, but how often do you consume sugary beverages such as juices or sodas? The daily sugar allowance is somewhere around 3040g, and a serving of regular juice usually contains 20 grams of sugar.

  15. 15. Chapter 9: Staying Healthy and Keeping Hypothyroidism Away Don’t forget to exercise regularly Regular exercising helps you boost your metabolism (which is already slowed down by a lazy thyroid) and burns extra calories on top of it. It also keeps you in a good mood and helps reduce “brain fog”. Don’t you get the impression your thoughts are getting clear while jogging or sweating in front of a workout DVD? Exercising is part of a healthy life... so here’s another valuable saying: mens sana in corpore sano! (A healthy mind in a healthy body!) A good night’s sleep... You always work better if your mind is clear and rested. You will easily get rid of brain fog and fatigue if you sleep properly AND if you stick to a strict schedule – for example, going to bed at the same hour. Don’t go to bed later than 10 PM. Your body loves routine and you can’t fight against your biological clock, even if society sometimes dictates otherwise.
