Thyroid 2

Absolutely!

Firstly, remember the inactive T4 hormone made by the thyroid needs to be converted by the liver. It is converted into the active form – T3. So if your liver is not in good nick, you may find your thyroid is somewhat sluggish.

Berberine

 

Berberine is one of the most exciting natural products in current medical research and has nothing short of amazing properties.

Many people have asked me to write about HOW to Drink Alcohol, so here goes.  I personally have either no alcohol or about 2 glasses a year. I value my liver too much, but I also don’t judge others who can handle it a lot better than I can, so I’m not being ‘holier than thou’ here – I just don’t feel good on it.…

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

The Benefits of N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

NAC is one of my personal can’t-do-without supplements and I’ll tell you why.  As a chronic asthmatic and sinus sufferer of note my entire life, I decided to use this about 8 years ago to thin the mucous (asthmatics have very thick mucous in the lungs making it difficult to breathe) in my lungs – but my main reason was to thin the mucous in the sinuses as I’d virtually beaten asthma 25 years ago.…

ALCOHOL
