Notes from The Thyroid Summit by Suzy Cohen and Dr Tom O’Bryan
Suzy Cohen - Thyroid Healthy
Dr Tom O’Bryan - Non-Coeliac gluten sensitivity
Wheat is NOT an essential nutrient.
Diseases of inflammation are ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, IBS etc.
symptoms of these are gluten sensitivity.
Alzheimer’s and autism regenerate after removing gluten from the body.
People with Attention Disorders (ADD), migraines, and ADHD have gluten sensitivity in the brain.
Coeliac, Type 1 Diabetes and thyroid disease are diseases which are brought on by gluten and autoimmunity.
If your test comes back positive, you have gluten sensitivity. If it comes back negative, you might still have gluten problems.
Beware of coffee.
43% of gluten sensitive people have immune reaction and inflammation in the gut. There is a correlation between Coeliac disease and Hashimoto’s.
Your TSH should be below 3.
If you have thyroid problems and gluten sensitivity you need 49% more medication to balance thyroid problems.
Go to the Coeliac support group to find a dietitian.
Children with Coeliac disease have a 3.2 times risk of early death from suicide. They need a lot of support.
It is best to go grain free as it reduces antibodies in your body.
People do respond to a gluten free and dairy free diet.
The lining in the intestines renews every 3-7 days. It heals itself.
If you are gluten sensitive and keep eating gluten, eventuality it will affect somewhere in your body and it will break down.
NOBODY can DIGEST GLUTEN. Gluten causes inflammation.
NF-Kappa B is highly elevated with gluten sensitivity.

Easy Gluten Free Recipe
Here's a good Gluten Free recipe that is very easy to make. I had it for lunch today and there's some left over for tomorrow too!
Gluten free pasta 3 x 250 cups (dry)- use your favourite. I always like the curly one. It doesn't hod any water in it like the penne and it doesn't stick together like the fetuccini.
Cook the pasta in 1 1/2 litres boiling water.
Add to the cooking pasta
1 carrot and 1 bunch of curly kale or other favourite green leafy vegetables. Chop these in a food processor so they are nice and fine.
Cook the pasta and veg for about 10 mins. Don't overcook it because it is going to cook further in the oven.
When cooked, drain and set aside.
1 tin light evaporated milk
1 450gr tuna
2 tspn curry powder
1tspn tumeric powder - this is very good for you
1/2 tspn Vegeta vegetable salt
Light cheese, grated, 1 handful
Warm the sauce, place the pasta and carrots and kale in a cooking dish. An 8 inch (20cm) cake tine is OK if you don't have a casserole dish.
Pour tuna sauce over the pasta and stir with a fork. Sprinkle with another handful of cheese.
Cook at 180 degrees C /350 degrees F for 30 minutes
The pasta absorbs the milk in the sauce so it is not runny when baked.

Jonathan Wright MD says most medicine used for asthma causes side effects. Even with modern medicine, many people still have bad asthma or low level of breathing difficulties.
When having an attack, muscles around the airways tighten up and less air gets in. Inflammation increases, airways become swollen and narrow and it gets harder to breathe. The person feels they are suffocating. In severe cases not enough oxygen gets to vital organs. You can die from asthma. 4000-5000 people die from it each year. For 7000 more people (in the US), it is a contributing factor towards their death.
Asthma is a chronic disease affecting the pathways that carry air in and out of the lungs. The airways become inflamed and sensitive to substances in the air, food or environment. It is an immunological problem. The immune system overreacts and leads to inflammation in the lungs and narrowing of air passages.
Allergies and asthma are inflammatory disorders. Eat a diet high in natural anti inflammatory foods, lots of veggies and some fruit.
Quercetin helps with asthma. The ‘Nutrition in Cancer ‘ journal called quercetin ‘the most important flavonoid ‘. It is a powerful anti inflammatory. It helps calm allergies and asthma. It is found in onions, apples, berries, tea, red wine and supplements. Polyphenols are in fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids are a class of polyphenols.
Quercetin has a unique molecular structure that impacts the immune system and reacts against cancer cells. It Is recommended by David Neiman PhD.
High consumption of apples can protect against asthma because of the quercetin in the peel. Quercetin is linked to reduction in heart disease and lung cancer. It has a protective effect
*Quercetin stabilises the mast cells that puts out histamine.
Quercetin and bromelain is a good combination.
Asthma and allergies are related to emotional stress. Anxiety and stress are common asthma triggers. They make the symptoms of an asthma attack worse. Stress management is important.
Buteyko breathing is good for asthma.
Food or pollens can trigger asthma. Dairy products are the worst, then eggs, chocolate, wheat, corn, citrus fruit and fish and tartrazine (yellow dye #5).
Supplements for Asthma
Quercetin 500mg twice daily with bromelain
Magnesium 300-600 mg daily
Vitamin B6 50-200mg daily. Vitamin C 1000-3000 mg daily
Selenium 200 mcg daily
Doctors and scientists agree that inflammation is a major problem for people when the body is unbalanced in some way. This can be from allergies, asthma, arthritis, heart problems, Alzheimer's disease, rashes or cancer.
The body uses inflammation to draw the necessary components to the part affected so that they can get to work and heal the body. The problem today is that we have major inflammation caused by our diet and lifestyles and chemical exposure, all of which has changed drastically in the last 100 years.
Scientific research has not yet found a safe, effective way to ease inflammation.
Nature has had it's inflammatory easing compound growing deep in the forests of South America.it's name is Cat's Claw.
Cat's Claw is a safe herb with a well researched history. It is anti-inflammatory. That means it causes inflammation to subside. It is safe too. It can be used when you are in pain, whether the pain is from arthritis, a bad back or an old injury.
According to Anthony William, the Medical Medium, Cat's Claw is best taken in an alcohol free liquid form.

Test your Supplements
Natural supplements are popular with people who have 'Mystery Illnesses'. There are illnesses that the medical establishment do not really know how to treat. They group a list of symptoms together and give it a name but it does not mean they have an answer. People with Chronic Syndrome, allergies CFIDS, Fibromyalgia, Adrenal Fatigue and many other illness fit into this category.
When the medical profession do not have answers do not have answers, people turn to alternative health professionals who treat with natural supplements. If you have enough information yourself you can buy many supplements from the many health food stores or internet online stores. However doing this can be hit and miss. That is, you don't really know if it is helping you or not.
One way to find out if these supplements are helping you or hindering you is by testing your muscle response. We have an inbuilt sensor system that we can use, however most people don't know about it. This is called muscle testing or Applied Kinesiology. It is easiest if you can find someone who knows how to do this properly to start with. It can get you started on the correct supplements immediately.
Then you can start practicing to learn this process yourself. It is really quite easy, and is just a matter of practice and perseverance. As I used to tell my painting students years ago, there are three important words to remember, 'Practice and Perseverance makes things Perfect'.
Watch the video below to to get you started. There are many different styles shown. Choose one that appeals to you and start practicing it. Feel free to change to a different style any time you wish to change.
When you feel confident enough to start testing different supplements, place the supplement in your body's energy field. Depending on which style of muscle testing you use, you could hold a supplement, place it near your chest, place it on your lap, or simply ask the question, 'Is this good for me right now?'
You can then go on to ask how many capsules to take and how often. You can use muscle testing to test for other things too. Ask any question you want, but remember you only get yes/no answers.
Wild Blueberries are a superfood. They contain even more antioxidants and the already amazing blueberry. Blueberries have become really popular with blueberry farms dotted around the countryside to supply people with highly nutritious fruit.
Antioxidants are very important for our body. We generate free radicals, (the baddies), atoms that roam around in our body creating havoc as they try to steal electrons to match up with. These free radicals are killed off or neutralized by antioxidants, (the goodies). An excess of free radicals in our body causes ill health. By getting more antioxidants in our body, the free radicals are kept under control.
How to get more Antioxidants
We get more antioxidants in our body from the food we eat. It is important to eat the right food that contains them. Many foods, like junk food, do not contain many or any antioxidants. Fresh fruit and vegetables contain lots of antioxidants along with vitamins and minerals and other nutrients.
How do we know which foods are the most nutritious?
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity of ORAC, is a laboratory test to find out how many antioxidants foods contain. It tests the total antioxidant capacity.
Medical Medium, Anthony William, says these are the best food on the planet.

Dr Abram Hoffer, eminent psychiatrist, pioneered the use of vitamins and nutrition for people with psychiatric illness and has been doing so since the 1950s.
He found the use of Niacin or Niacinamide which is Vitamin B3, helped people with severe schizophrenia, and treated over 5000 patients, most making a full recovery. He also advocates proper nutrition. Without enough vitamins and minerals, the body cannot function optimally.
List to him speak on the subject.
Switzerland has decided to care for its people holistically as well as synthetically.
They have decided to include certain Natural Therapies in their Health Care system. These include homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine and holistic medicine.
'Synthetic pharmaceutical "science" got its start in 1869, as experiments with coal tar were underway' according to Staff Writer L.J. Devon, at NaturalNews.com
He says 'This shift toward integration will allow the Swiss healthcare system to heal, as it moves away from profiting off disease management. With the inclusion of these five eclectic healing modalities, Swiss healthcare will become more affordable.'
'Pharmaceutical "science," for the most part, is an absolute abandonment of the healing modalities that have sustained humans for centuries.' he says.
Note: This all happened because the people of Switzerland stood up and demanded that they have natural health care. Two-thirds of the people voted for this to happen, and so it did. Perhaps the people of other westernized countries can follow their lead and demand the same for themselves.
So if you happen to live in Switzerland, you can enjoy natural healthcare by experienced practitioners with the blessing of the Government there. This is forward thinking for a westernized country.
People who have illnesses that scientific medicine has not been able to help, eg Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and many, many other illnesses, often find help in natural medicines, therefore, having these modalities available to us at a reasonable cost is very important.

The New York Times reported on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome on July 7, 2016.
" Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition that causes extreme and lasting fatigue, preventing people from taking part in even the most routine daily activities. There are no tests to confirm the diagnosis, which has prompted speculation that it is a psychological condition rather than a physical illness."
