Thyroid Disease

Date: 03-09-10
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Mark Starr, Joshua P. Warren, Dr. John Apsley

Board certified by the American Board of Pain Medicine, Dr. Mark Starr discussed how an epidemic of untreated thyroid disease could be a factor in many health problems; and how the mainstream medical establishment doesn't offer effective diagnosis and treatments. The thyroid, an endocrine gland located at the throat, produces a variety of hormones, but as many as 40% of the population may have Hypothyroidism 2- a condition in which the cells are unable to utilize the hormones, he said. Symptoms include fatigue, weakness, cold intolerance, muscle pain, depression, obesity, muscle cramps, headaches, constipation, and heart disease.

This condition could be caused by fluoride exposure, mercury from dental fillings, pesticides, and other toxins, he suggested. Hypothyroidism 2 is typically not revealed in lab tests, but can possibly be self-diagnosed through taking the underarm basal body temperature (directions), with temperatures under 97 degrees suggestive of low thyroid function.

Starr recommended such treatments as iodine (which must be used carefully), and dessicated thyroid (instead of the synthetic thyroid equivalents-- which he said are not effective). To get information on doctors who can appropriately treat someone with this condition, he suggested the websites, Stop the Thyroid Madness, About.com: Thyroid Disease and the Tennant Institute. Dr. John Apsley, who brought Starr to the attention of the show, joined in for a segment.

Seeing into Other Dimensions

Last hour guest, paranormal investigator Joshua P. Warren reported on the possibility of peering into other dimensions through recent lab experiments his LEMUR team has been conducting. "When your consciousness is exposed to some kind of unusual interference from different frequencies it allows you to morph your reality into different things," he explained. Usually we are out of phase with other dimensions-- but when we see a ghost or other manifestation, it's not like they have entered our domain, but rather we are entering theirs, he added.
