my wicked journey

facial swelling


hair loss and weight gain

I was diagonosed with hyperthyroid in Oct of 07.  It's a long story, but I couldn't take the meds, couldn't do radioactive iodine, so through thyroid strorms, heart problems, allergic reactions, I had to have my thyroid removed in Dec.  Since the surgery, I have been taking synthroid.  My dr. added cytomel in Feb. because my body wasn't producing any t3 on it own.  I have gained 45 pounds, my hair is falling out (I have lost over half of my hair) and the WORST part is I have facial swelling and eye swelling!!!  I look in the mirror and I don't even recognize myself!!  I am depressed, and have no energy!!(oh, and the headaches)  I just started on armour yesterday and I felt good for the first time since my surgery!  I am hoping this swelling, and all of my hair falling out will end soon!  Has anyone else gone through anything similar to this?  I just got married right before my surgery and I am driving my husband nuts!!!  I hope someone can give me some advice!!

Hi iunderstand69,

I was wondering if you have heard of a raw food diet, which consists of mostly vegetables and fruits that have not been cooked or processed.
Sorry to hear about your miscarriage, I'm glad you have your hubby, Olive, and Moses to make you feel better.

Please google raw food, living food.

Good luck!
