Applied Myrtle and Frankincense to the thyroid, and on Vita Reflex Points. Took Frankincense internally. Utilized usual oil support for other concerns. Started Sulfurzyme – 2 Capsules 2X per day. Regimen, cont…: 12/7/2014 40 Regimen, cont… Increased NingXia Red intake 1oz 2X per day Began to monitor temperatures – Took 2 more Thyromin capsules* to bring temperatures higher. Temperatures began to register within what are considered normal levels. Observations – Patient and July Lab Assessment: 12/7/2014 41 Observations – Patient and July Lab Assessment These Young Living products really work! (Better than I thought they would!) Patient had begun to feel overly warm. Patient had begun to feel a bit on edge in retrospect. Identified thyroid autoimmune development as player in high HDL on original lab assessment and low thyroid condition. Revised Regimen : 12/7/2014 42 Revised Regimen Reduce Thyromin to 1C – 2X per day Continue with use of Myrtle and Frankincense, Sulfurzyme, and NingXia Red Add Endoflex 2 drops –2X per day Add Endoflex to Endocrine Vita Reflex Points. Add Immupower 2 drops – 2X per day. Add one drop each Hyssop and Cistus. Autoimmune Disease: 12/7/2014 43 Autoimmune Disease Occurs when the Immune System begins to attack the body tissues “with the blessing” of the CNS. Many researchers believe it is associated with chronic infection , chronic allergies or presence of toxins confusing our DNA expression. Stealth pathogens can invade the inner cell space leading the immune system to identify the cell as problematic and then destroying the cell and like tissues. Autoimmune Disease cont…: 12/7/2014 44 Autoimmune Disease cont … The presence of toxins confuses cell physiology with ensuing immune cell attack Autoimmune Disease is on the rise. Caseine and Gluten Sensitivity have been linked with increased incidence of autoimmune disease. 43% of US population has the gene for gluten sensitization. All those with osteoporosis should be screened for Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity. Gut permeability can lead to exposure of gut-derived food and microbial antigens leading to allergies, and in turn, autoantibodies.: 12/7/2014 45 Gut permeability can lead to exposure of gut-derived food and microbial antigens leading to allergies, and in turn, autoantibodies.
