Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

On January 1st I discovered my thyroid was swollen to the size of a golf ball. I watched Dr. Oz on TV and he provided at home tests you can do. I took them all and came out positive for hypothyroidism. Everyone in my family has it. I had all the same symptoms. I get the actual blood work done tomorrow.

The first day I just used a couple drops of Spearmint and Peppermint on my thyroid. By the end of the work day at the office it had shrunk to almost the normal size. I continued this and took bladderwrack supplements as suggested by Dr Oz. BUT since I am allergic to iodine this was NOT a good long term solution. Sure it made me feel amazing. I got the color back in my face, all the pain left my body, constipation stopped etc. However, my heart was racing.

Next I ordered Thyromin and the Endoflex oil blend to help my thyroid. I applied a couple of drops neat of the EndoFlex blend on my thyroid area. It works great! As of right now my thyroid is normal size.

I took Thyromin this morning for the first time and I did get a tiny bit of heart palpitations which I think is due to my personal sensitivity to iodine. So I am lowering the dose in half tomorrow. That will make the iodine only about half a gram.

I know the heart palpations are normal when finding the right dose for thyroid medications so I assume it could be the same for Thyromin, especially because it has the porcine glandular in it. The exciting thing is I feel great, constipation has improved even MORE than when I was taking the seaweed supplements.

In a week I will add another post to let everyone know how it works for me and how my blood work turns out.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: hormones — "Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."Link
2.Associated topics: hormones,thyroid — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: hormones — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
4.Associated topics: constipation-/-irregularity — "A 4 weeks treatment with peppermint oil improves abdominal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.... The symptoms evaluated were: abdominal bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, feeling of incomplete evacuation, pain at defecation, passage of gas or mucus, and urgency at defecation."Link
5.Associated topics: hormones — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
6.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
7.Associated topics: hypothyroidism-(Low-Activity) — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
8.Associated topics: hormones — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
