GOOP is at it again with the dangerous medical advice. This time they are leaving the vagina alone and focusing their dangerous energy vibrations on your thyroid.

Hyperthyroidism: Too Much Of A Good Thing
By: Dr. Alan Christianson When someone you know is living with hypothyroidism, it can be tempting to think that if only the doctor would prescribe an extra helping of thyroid hormone, your friend or loved one would feel so much better and would enjoy life more. And in some cases, an extra helping might be in order. In other cases, not so much. Too much thyroid hormone can actually be dangerous, which is why doctors are loathe to bump the levothyroxin dosage up an extra 25 micrograms or so for one of their patients who's still experiencing hypothyroid symptoms. Tests always come first, and there's a good reason for that....

I Am My Mother's Chimera. Chances Are, So Are You.
For years the concept of a "genetic chimera" -- an individual with two genetically distinct cells lines in his/her body -- has sparked the imagination of writers: from Stephen King to Michael Crichton, from CSI to The Office. The idea that an individual could harbor his/her own twin is creepy and intriguing at the same time. Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology have allowed us to probe much deeper into a person's genome, to the point that today scientists believe that chimerism could be far more common than what we originally thought. Chances are, you could be your own twin. But how surprised would you b...

IL37 and autoimmune thyroid disease
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) and Graves’ disease (GD) differ in clinical presentation and pathophysiology, but both carry thyroid T cells that escape the immune tolerance process and infiltrate the thyroid. Inflammatory cytokines are key in this process. Yan et al. assessed the association of four SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) of IL37 (a natural suppressor of innate and acquired immunity) with HT and GD in the Chinese Han population. The minor A allele of rs2723176/ rs2723186/rs3811047 and the minor G allele of rs3811046 were found to have a protective influence on GD susceptibility, but there ...

IgG4-related thyroiditis
IgG4-related disease is now considered a systemic disease that might affect every organ with progressively growing fibroinflammatory lesions causing a mass effect. Its diagnosis is based on a typical histology, high count of IgG4-positive plasma cells per high-power field (HPF), and high IgG4/IgG ratio. Salook et al. report  on a 55-year old male with a positive medical history of hypothyroidism treated  with L-thyroxin  for several years. Due to an enlarging goiter and exacerbation in the patient’s complaints, he was operated with excision of a fibrotic and enlarged thyroifd ...
