Food Allergy and Intolerance

T-foodAllergies-enHD-AR1

Many different names are used to describe adverse reactions to foods, including food hypersensitivity, food intolerance, food allergy and many other medical and non-medical terms. Food allergies were a rarity just 40 or 50 years ago, but today an estimated one out of every 13 children has a food allergy -- and the incidence is increasing. According to UK data, hospitalizations for food allergy increased by 500 percent from 1990 to 2006.

Migraine - is my thyroid to blame?

Have you ever had a migraine? If not, you are a lucky one. I used to get them frequently. At one point they became part of my daily life – I didn’t know when one ends and another starts. I also did’t know that it could be my hormones, especially thyroid and mineral imbalances in my body to blame for my suffering. The World Health Organisation has classified headache as a major health disorder and found it to be the sixth highest cause worldwide of years lost due to disability.

Detox do’s and dont’s

Detox-dos-and-donts_1-1024x682

The idea of detoxification is growing increasingly popular. The basic idea is that your body accumulates more toxins in the modern world than its natural detoxification system (your liver, kidneys, lungs and skin) can get rid of.

Proponents say that chemicals from household cleaners, pesticides, cars, pollutants in the air, plus food additives, colorings, preservatives and stabilizers, herbicides and pesticides all build up over time and cause disease. By assisting natural detoxification process in the body you will slow down the ageing process.

How often should I detox?

xhow-often-should-I-detox_11-1024x704.jpg.pagespeed.ic.xBj2lpIkGB

There is little doubt that our environment is polluted with toxins and harmful substances. Toxins can damage the body in an insidious and cumulative way. Fortunately, the body has a built in detoxification process working 24/7. A toxin is defined as any compound that has a detrimental effect on cell function or structure.

“In nature we plainly see daily and seasonal cycles that support the survival of plants and animals. For example, birds fly south, whales migrate, and leaves turn red and fall off the trees in the fall. While all this is happening, we only put on or take off a sweater. Our survival, just like the birds, depends on being connected to these natural cycles through eating seasonally, cleansing regularly and living in harmony with nature”, explains Dr. Douilard beautifully. Our detox system has to be fully operational every day, it doesn’t get lunch or coffee break. But when the burden of input exceeds what we can eliminate, that’s when we have a problem [...]

How Does My Temperature Tell Me About My Thyroid and Adrenals?

       FullSizeRender

Most of the chemical reactions that take place in the body are catalyzed by enzymes that depend on normal temperatures for optimal function.  (For example - the result is poorer detoxification via your liver) So your temperature can be one of many clues of your metabolic health!

As a hypothyroid patient or you suspect to be one, taking your temperature can be an important aspect to differentiate from adrenal problems because many symptoms are similar or the same in people with thyroid and adrenal dysfunction.

Your temperature: 
  • can help you diagnose your hypothyroidism
  • can help you assess your adrenal status 
How to take your basal body temperature to diagnose Hypothyroidism

“Basal” means “base,” and your basal temperature is your body temperature taken the very first thing in the morning before you’ve moved out of your sleeping position.

Once you get out of bed, the movement of your muscles heats up your body, so it’s essential that you follow these instructions closely to get an accurate reading.

The normal basal temperature averages 36.5-36.8 C (97.8-98.2 F). Treatment  is recommend if the temperature averages 36.4C/97.6F or less. The temperature should be taken for five days. However if the temperature is 36C/97.0 degrees F or less for three consecutive days, you do not need to take the last two temperatures. Mercury thermometer is considered more accurate, while digital thermometer tend to be off up to a degree one direction or the other.

Instructions:

1.)   If using a Mercury Thermometer, shake it down before going to bed. In the morning, as soon as you wake up, put the thermometer deep in your armpit for 10 minutes and record the temperature.  Lie back and relax, keeping your armpit closed over the thermometer.

2.)   If using a Basal Digital Thermometer, in the morning, as soon as you wake up, place it under your tongue until it beeps. 

How to take your body temperature to diagnose Adrenal problem

Take three temperatures approximately three hours apart, starting approximately three hours after waking up, but avoid taking temperatures after activity or eating and drinking for at least 20 minutes:

  1. 3 hours after you wake up
  2. 3 hours after that
  3. then 3 hours after that 
  4. then you take the average of those 3 temperatures and plot it on the graph
  5. make notes of any changes — for example, if something stressful happens or if you change something such as the amount of supplements you are taking.
Recognizing Adrenal and Thyroid Correction Patterns


Dr. Rind's Metabolic Temperature Graph™ is a method for measuring and interpreting daily temperatures to gain insight into metabolic energy issues associated with both adrenal and thyroid function.

Use these Unmarked and Sample graphs to get started 

- PDF file http://www.drrind.com/forms/tg_blank.pdf

- XLS file http://www.drrind.com/forms/tg_blank.xls

Interpreting Results:
  • Wide variability in daily temperatures indicates a weak adrenal function since the adrenal glands help the body maintain stability. Good adrenal function produces a stable temperature.
  • In a hypothyroid state, the day-to-day averages are low and very stable
  • In a hypoadrenal state including adrenal exhaustion or adrenal stress, the temperatures are low and unstable
  • If your temperature is high, yet you have hypothyroid symptoms - this is a clue that you may have an antibodies attack on your thyroid, called Hashimotos Disease

Note:

  • For pre-menopausal women, the temperature should be taken starting the second day of menstruation. That is because considerable temperature rise may occur around the time of ovulation and give incorrect results. Check your temps before days 19 – 22 of your cycle, with the first counted day being the day you started your period.
  • Do not perform the test when you have an infection or any other condition which would raise your temperature.


The Metabolic Temperature Graph™ is a powerful tool that graphically depicts our metabolic state (adrenal and thyroid) and guides us on the path to recovery.

Most people still believe that body weight is simply a matter of calories in via diet versus calories out via exercise.

But the truth need not be too mysterious or perplexing. The explanation that frequently makes far more sense is Adrenal Fatigue [...] and for part 2 [...]
