I thought I had a pocket in my throat that food was getting stuck in. It felt like someone was pressing their thumb into the hollow of my throat all the time. It turned out to be a large nodule on my thyroid! And then the doctor sent me into a panic by using the C word. After further needle poking and testing, it turned out to be quite large but thankfully benign. But my endocrinologist wanted me on thyroid medicine which had less than a 50% chance of keeping it from growing further and even less of a chance of shrinking it. If that didn't work then my only other option was to have my thyroid removed AND go on thyroid medication for life. I didn't love my options. So before going down that road, I decided to take matters into my own hands and see how far I could get. I landed at a clinic just 5 blocks south of the border in Tijuana...not where I would have expected. But my best friend had beat stage 4 cancer going there a year ago and is healthier than she had has ever been, so why not try it? I am now taking 19 different supplements, eating healthy, exercising daily, and doing some alternative treatments at the clinic. My doctor and the staff there are brilliant, have the most wonderful bedside manner, and I feel amazing! The pain that has been in my back for two years went away, literally overnight, the clicking, ringing and itching in my ears...all gone, and I definitely feel like the nodule has shrunk. I'll go back for another ultrasound after my three month protocol to find out for sure but I am extremely grateful to have found an alternative. I can also expect to get down to at least half the number of supplements (which I buy from Vitacost or Whole Foods) in a couple of months. I'm not saying not to use Western medicine but I am saying, check out your options and in any case, do not ignore the red flags showing up in your body. Left to their own devices they will only get worse! Thanks for the great article!
