I just returned from the national nutrition convention in Baltimore where there were over 1000 vendors displaying the latest, innovative products in natural health.
I came across several very interesting topics that I want to share with you over the next few emails.
Today I want to tell you about the opportunity I had to meet one of natural medicines hero’s, Dr Jacob Teitelbaum, MD. He has treated more than 15,000 patients with a blend of traditional and alternative medicine. Dr Teitelbaum was signing his latest book, Real Cause, Real Cure which discusses the 9 root causes of the most common health problems and how to solve them. Dr Teitelbaum understands how to address chronic illness with healing rather than treating symptoms which is what today’s medical model is built on.
I was so impressed with his latest book that I believe everyone should have it as a reference for themselves or family members. He has so many jewels of information on the true causes of our health woes and offers very effective alternative solutions that work!
One example of information in his book is his instructions on how to accurately appraise the health of your thyroid by a test called, “the armpit test.” I have spoken of this test for many years to customers that feel that they have low thyroid yet no blood test confirmed it and Dr Teitelbaum states the following instructions from his new book:
Before you get out of bed, put a thermometer under your armpit. Lie quietly for 10 minutes. If your temperature is under 97.4 on two repeat measurements, you and your doctor should consider treatment with thyroid hormone, no matter what your blood test shows. I do have to say that you must either use the old fashioned mercury thermometer or a axillary thermometer and not the regular digital type that cuts off after 3 minutes.
If your temperature is under 97.4 on two repeat measurements, you and your doctor should consider treatment with thyroid hormone, no matter what your blood test shows.
This book is filled with many tips such as this on everything from heartburn, anxiety, depression, skin problems, IBS, incontinence, and dozens more.
