Grave's disease is
one of the most common hormonal disorders in
women aged 20-50. You may know it as goiter or hyperthyroidism.
Men, get it too, of course. And it's bad news.
If you have it or want to avoid it, keep reading.
See what Jennifer
asks about her cousin who has this condition:
have been following the Great Taste
No Pain program for about 18 months now and feel wonderful.
But I have been going over all my saved emails from you to find
something that may be suitable to send to my cousin.
She has been diagnosed with Grave's disease and LOSES
weight. Her diet since childhood has been littered with the
likes of Coke on a daily basis, (sometimes for breakfast!)
cigarettes, white bread etc. She skips meals and never overeats.
She has suffered from IBS from time to time.
know she has stopped some of this and is trying to improve her
habits, but does not realise how much GTNP can change her health
issues. She is waiting for surgery and is only in her 40's!
Could you write something that talks about these issues? She is
tiny and is getting tinier. She is a giving and wonderful woman
and I would really like to see her get well. I have told her
about you and sent her the link but I doubt she realises just
how powerful a change in diet can be.
haven't seen each other in a few years so she doesn't get to
witness how well I am--she only hears it in an email.
Jennifer, I'm happy to oblige...
With a regular
longstanding diet of Coca-Cola, white bread and cigarettes, I'm
surprised that thyroid problems and IBS are all that's wrong
with your cousin.
Let's take a peek
and see what has likely been going on inside her body:
we all fall down
Not only are soda
and white bread basically empty calories with zero nutrition,
they are EXTREMELY acid-forming in your body.
acid-forming as well, plus they contain more than 4,000
different chemical compounds, many of which are deadly poisons
to your body.
All of your
organs, glands, systems and tissues are VERY sensitive to the
level of acidity in your body--they MUST have a slightly
alkaline environment (meaning having a blood pH of around 7.365)
to work properly.
When your pH
becomes more acidic (when it dips down below the neutral level
of 7), your body cannot function like it's supposed to...
All of your organs
struggle to do their jobs. You can't effectively absorb
nutrients from your foods. Your body can't heal itself properly.
Inflammation and pains pop up from head to toe.
There is one time
in our lives when our bodies are SUPPOSED to be acidic...
When we're DEAD!
That's right--our bodies naturally become acidic upon death so
we can decompose (aka: rot) as Nature intended.
So the longer you
stay in an acid range when you're alive, the more your body
struggles...and it literally begins to break down and rot.
It only follows
that Jennifer's cousin's acid-forming diet most assuredly has
helped played a role in her thyroid and IBS issues.
And if her body is
having trouble absorbing nutrients, that hasn't helped her
weight issue either. People with poor nutrient absorption are
prime candidates for malnutrition and underweight.
If only The
Archies REALLY knew what they were singing about.
With a steady diet
of white bread and soda, Jennifer's cousin may as well have been
gulping down the entire sugar bowl every day.
One of the big
problems with a regular sugar onslaught is that it feeds the
harmful bacteria in your gut. This makes it easier for harmful
bacteria to overcome the friendly flora in your gut.
When this happens,
not only does it hamper your digestion (which certainly can be a
factor in Jennifer's cousin's IBS) but it also compromises your
immune system as a result.
interesting fact for you: Studies have shown that just ONE
teaspoon of sugar can depress your immune system for up to 5
And there are a
whopping 12 teaspoons of sugar in every can of soda!
disease is considered an autoimmune condition--meaning that the
immune system "attacks" healthy tissue (in this case, thyroid
tissue) as if it were a dangerous invader.
So it's probably
no coincidence that, after "challenging" her immune system with
sugar for SO long, that Jennifer's cousin is now dealing with an
autoimmune condition, is it?
The rest of
mentioned that her cousin is waiting for surgery.
But it may not be
too late--there are STILL measures she can take to help.
And even if she
does have surgery, it's still essential that she help reduce any
acid waste buildup in her body and make her pH more alkaline.
Otherwise, it's just a matter of time before something ELSE goes
Plus being more
alkaline will encourage better healing after surgery, and having
better nutrient absorption can help her put on some needed
If you're like
Jennifer's cousin and have had a "less than stellar" diet (come
on, be honest) chances are excellent that you too are swimming
in acid wastes and it's only a matter of time before YOUR body
starts to break down.
The great news is
that getting and staying more alkaline has never been easier or

As I mentioned
above, Grave's disease is an autoimmune condition.
So a wise approach
for fighting an autoimmune disease is to come head to head with
the culprit that's causing the problem to begin with -- the
probiotics may be a big help.
system's cells (called T cells) are made in your bone
marrow. These T cells will develop into one of 2 types -- a
Helper T cell or a Regulatory T cell.
Helper T cells
patrol your body like police officers, looking for dangerous
invaders. Once they detect a real or perceived threat, they
quickly multiply themselves and attack.
Regulatory T cells
stop inflammation and keep harmless tissues safe.
Most often the
decision of whether a T cell becomes Helper or Regulatory takes
place in your gut .
Probiotics in your
gut help to encourage more Regulatory T cell formation, which
means more cells for your body to naturally fight inflammation.
Great news for
people with autoimmune diseases!
drugs, probiotics can help address the immune system's mixed-up
response to normal tissues and cells. And with no horrible side
effects like drugs!
Super Shield probiotic formula was designed, in part, as a
potent and effective helper for autoimmune diseases.
One of Super
Shield's strains, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, helps to strengthen
your gut-barrier function and has been shown to have a
beneficial impact on autoimmune conditions as well as
constipation, diarrhea and IBS symptoms. (Remember Jennifer's
cousin is also dealing with IBS.)
Super Shield's 12 other potent strains will help keep your gut
flora in proper balance, encouraging the formation of more anti-inflammatory T cells.

can make to help target it from within--with Super Shield.

PS: Janet's blood pressure has stabilized, she sleeps like a
baby and has no more reflux!
learned about your program from my brother who searched the web due to frustration with
heart burn and reflux. I became interested because I was
suffering with heartburn, acid reflux and IBS.
Last month I was going to bed every night with severe reflux. I
was sleeping my usual 4 to 5 hours a night getting up 1 to 3
times a night.
was also experiencing high blood pressure which my medication
was failing to control. I was so sluggish all day long, having
to take a nap after lunch.
began your program and I had slight reflux the first night and
NONE AT ALL since then. I am 54 and have a lot more energy now.
Best of all, I am sleeping 8 hours a night and through the
night. This hasn't happened since I was in high school.
blood pressure is stabilized and I no longer require a nap. All
of my symptoms have vanished!
Growing up in Southwest Louisiana I delayed starting your
program because I didn't want to give up all of our great Cajun
dishes. But I still enjoy this wonderful food by combining it
differently. It's easy not to cheat, because I just feel too
