Day 282

Saturday 8th October 2016

This year I have got over so many ailments I have lived with for years. I was taking 10 tablets a day and now it has been reduced to 1. 

I was taking tablets for my skin, for acid reflux, for indigestion, for over producing oestrogen, for being photo sensitive, thyroids, I even had special shampoo for a itchy scalp. 

The only tablet I take now though is for the thyroids. The thyroid gland is a gland that is in the neck shaped like a butterfly. 


The thyroid gland is the epicentre of your body. It’s the central control. It is important to get your levels right or it can mess up your whole system. 

Jenny says – “Our thyroid is like a seasonal butterfly, in the summer it blossoms and flutters away in the sunshine, full of energy and brightness, however when the seasons change and the cold whether set in the thyroid function can change back to the the caterpillar mode, a little slower and the metabolism changes to fat storage for the hibernation of the winter. This can affect your mood and make you feel sluggish, this could be why we find it harder to lose weight in the winter! Or it could just be the big jumpers!”

So it controls your temperature, your emotions, your mood, your weight and a whole lot more. To check the thyroid levels requires a blood test that I have had every 6 months for years. 

About a month ago I had one to check my levels. After I had it I stopped taking my tablets and I lost lots of weight that week (this was before the detox) it is what helped me get to my goal of 70lbs. I talked to Jenny about it and she said that I shouldn’t stop them completely. So since then I have been testing it. 

I couldn’t do it while on the detox but since I have finished I have reduced the amount. I have been testing my emotions and the effects by taking a lower dose. 

So you know already that I have been low this week but I have also gone up in weight more than it says. I haven’t recorded it because I know my levels aren’t right and I haven’t actually done anything to put on weight – that’s why everyday they are the same. I have also been very cold which is a sign of the miss balance. But the main thing I have noticed is that my neck  starts throbbing when the levels aren’t right. 

This happens if I am taking the doctors recommended dose or nothing. So I am trying something in between but it is taking a while to get right.
