Goitre or enlarged thyroid can occur when they thyroid expands. In my holistic training we were taught that it extends to try and increase its surface because it is lacking in certain nutrients. Certain foods are known as Goitrigens, which can block the ability of a person's thyroid to absorb hormone. These are uncooked cruciferous vegetables such as kale, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, rapini and mustard greens.

An interesting article shared online, discussed that children don't verbalize their anxiety, they say they have stomach aches. In the clinic, we have noticed this as well. However, many kids may have stomach aches, especially around the belly button and have parasites and some children have food sensitivities. When we work with children a little extra investigative work needs to be done. Many children's tummy aches are passed off as anxiety but may actually be a sign of something else.

High Creatinine can be related to a natural waste product that comes from using our muscles. It is found in the blood and urine and is processed out of the kidneys. Speak to your doctor about the causes of high creatinine, it may be temporary or related to a kidney disorder. The webpage, medical news today, offers some quick diet tips to lower creatinine such as:

Reducing protein intake, especially cooked red meat.

Increasing dietary fiber. According to a review in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, dietary fibre helped people with chronic kidney disease lower their creatinine levels.

Be careful not to become dehydrated. Take in plenty of fluids. If you dislike water, put a slice of lime, lemon or orange in it. Also herbal teas help.

Avoid creatine based supplements for body building. They use it for muscle energy, but if unused it has to be processed in the kidneys.

Certain herbs can be used in tea form or standardized, such as salvia, nettle leaf, dandelion, astragalus, ginseng, chamomile, cinnamon and chicory. Be sure to check with your doctor for drug interactions.

I had an interesting chat today with a client who was recommended by her doctor to take prenatal vitamins before conception to ensure good health. It is concerning to me that typically Medical Doctors recommend vitamins that are poorly absorbed. Some ingredients that are both cheap and poorly absorbed are as follows:

  • Magnesium Oxide
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Cyanocobalamin versus methycobalamin for B12
  • No Methylated B Vitmains
  • Folic Acid instead of L Methylfolate
  • Zinc oxide

Not to mention many additives such as: ammonium hydroxide, N-butyl alcohol, carnauba wax, D&C Red No. 27, FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Blue No. 2, FD&C Red No. 40, FD&C Yellow No. 6, isopropyl alcohol, macrogol/PEG 3350, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, polyvinyl alcohol, propylene glycol, shellac glaze, simethicone, sodium croscarmellose, sodium lauryl sulfate

It is too bad that most GP's don't brush up on the quality of supplements they prescribe to their clients. I believe that a quality multivitamin should be given pre conception and post conception for better nutrition.
