Healing the Thyroid with Ayurveda | Dr. Marianne Teitelbaum #040

Vital Veda Podcast Benner: Episode on Ayurveda for the Thyroid

Thyroid Disease is one of the most common health problems that we face.

The thyroid gland is the only gland whose hormones affect every cell in the body.
In reverse, anything in the body that is not in balance, will affect the thyroid.

There are epidemics of hypothyroidism (low/under-active thyroid). Especially western countries.
15 million people in US alone have hypothyroidism and don’t even know it!
Hashimotos is currently the #1 Auto-Immune disorder.

Rather than giving medications, which make the thyroid gland lazy, we want to address with Ayurveda the root issues that allow for the thyroid to malfunction.  

About Marianne Teitelbaum

Dr. Marianne Teitelbaum has been in private practice for over 30 years.

She has studied with several Ayurvedic doctors, including Stuart Rothenberg, M.D., and Vaidya Rama Kant Mishra.

The recipient of the Prana Ayushudi Award in 2013, she lectures and writes extensively about Ayurvedic treatments for all diseases.

She has been using in-depth principles of Ayurveda in her practice with outstanding results with all health problems.


In this Episode we Discuss:

Marianne’s Guru: Vaidya Rama Kant Mishra

Most of the Shakhadwipi Brahmins who settled in India still practice Ayurveda today. Just as Acharya P.V. Sharma, a famous Ayurvedic scholar, is of Shakhadwipi descent, Vaidya R K. Mishra’s ancestors issued from these migrant Shakhadwipi families.

Sastras (Ancient texts) left the texts open for Vaidyas to later add to in the future.

Overmedication of modern westerns causing lots of problems.

The trend of Americans rejecting herbs when taken orally due to a debilitated liver.

  • Similarly, modern Americans were becoming victims of Panchakarma as they couldn’t handle the detox methods.
  • Prepare the channels before detox.
  • Ensure agni is proper.

“Natural” synthetic supplements and “Nutraceuticals”

  • Isolated active ingredients synthetically made in a lab at a much higher dose - this comes riddled with side effects for the liver and kidneys.
  • e.g. Vitamin supplements, zinc supplements, curcumin extracts, herbal extracts etc.
  • These are not bad, but not ideal to take long term.
  • Ayurveda, on the contrary, provides natural, holistic and very effective treatments for ailments of the Thyroid.

Bhasmas (Ash of minerals and metals)

Powerful nano-particle Ayurvedic medicine that can penetrate well. They can go to certain places that regular herbs cannot.

The Epidemic of HypoThyroid Disease

(Low/Sluggish or Under-active Thyroid)

Hashimotos: The #1 Auto-Immune Disease

Thyroid Medication

  • How taking thyroid medication makes your thyroid gland lazy. It is not addressing the root cause of the problem.
  • How to get off the medication gradually as their thyroid comes back to life and proper function.

The thyroid gland is the only gland whose hormones affect every cell in the body.

In reverse, anything in the body that is off, will affect the thyroid. Here's where Ayurveda plays a major role, enlivening the cellular memory of optimum health and acting as a support for the thyroid.

The effect of mercury on the thyroid

Mercury goes immediately to the thyroid gland instead of the iodine.

The effect of fluoride on the thyroid

  • Fluoride in tap water - Fluoride an endocrine disruptor in the broad sense of altering normal endocrine function." This altered function can involve your thyroid, parathyroid, and pineal glands, as well as your adrenals, pancreas, and pituitary.

Fluoride has the ability to:

  • Mimic thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
  • Damage the cells of your thyroid gland
  • Disrupt conversion from the inactive form of the thyroid hormone (T4) to the active form (T3) 

Chlorine is also in the same family as iodine - and can displace iodine in your thyroid gland  (iodine is used to create T4 and convert T4 to T3.

The effect of the contraceptive pill on the thyroid

  • Low prana, non-intelligent hormones mimicking chemicals.
  • Causing lost of breast cancer, not allowing thyroid to work + many other issues.

Coffees effect on the thyroid gland.

Ionised salts effect on the thyroid gland.

Instead of synthetic iodine, eat kelp or seafood.

Are women more effected with hypothyroidism than men?

  • They may have more stress, and fluctuating hormones.
  • Maybe because they attend to their health more? 

Why blood tests may not detect thyroid imbalance but rather report “normal”

  • Ayurveda, by means of the Pulse diagnosis, allows for the detection of imbalances in the thyroid earlier on in the disease process.
  • Ayurveda has Six Stages of Disease.
  • The thyroid panels that doctors are performing are not comprehensive enough.

The effect of Soy on the thyroid gland

Especially unfermented soy is not good for overall health.

The Health Implications of Veganism

  • There’s something missing.
  • You may feel wonderful a couple years… but it has ill implications for health.
  • Our whole body is animal protein.

Over Heated Liver

Constant heating can lead to autoimmune conditions.

Ethical Dairy

It may very well be available near you!

Try your local Hare Krsna farm.

Marianne has sources of ethical dairy in USA in her book.

The effect of light on the thyroid gland

The importance of Vitamin D

The Immune System and Auto-Immune Disorders

  • The three components of the immune system.
  • Auto-immune is loss of intelligence.

The best yoghurt culture

  • The reductionist approach of probiotics.
  • The best way to consume yoghurt.

Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)

  • A very enlightened plant.
  • Very easy to grow. Get a cutting of the stem and grow it.
  • Prevents the cytokine storm - fantastic for auto-immune.
  • One of the amrita (immortal) herbs.
  • “The great protector.”

HyperThyrodism

Premature cleansing

The Role Of The Gall Bladder

  • An overlooks organ.
  • Weak thyroid = the gall bladder doesn’t empty properly.
  • So the cholesterol becomes imbalanced.

Is Your Morning Shower Toxic for Your Health?

Hot water opens the skins pores and allows the volatile toxic compounds that are abundant in tap water to be absorbed through the skin and lungs.

Lungs - there is plenty of space. Thus, it is a common place for ama (toxins and undigested food materials) to deposit and lodge.

The skin - the largest organ of the body with a large surface area where these toxins can directly enter the bloodstream without being processed by the liver.

This is why in Ayurveda, herbs are trans-dermally administered via medicated oils, pastes (lepams) etc. - to bypass the liver and effectively deliver medicine deep into the tissues.

You are now using organic cosmetics, soaps, shampoos etc., Great! but you are still flooding yourself with toxins that absorb into the blood and reap havoc throughout the body.

Chlorine and disinfection by products in your tap water irritate the mucous membranes, disrupt the skins microbial balance, clog the skins pores, strip the natural oils from your hair and create dry, itchy skin.

These volatile toxins also damage the structure of your home, imagine what they can do to your body!

The best way to prevent volatile compounds entering your blood stream during bathing is to install a whole home water filtration system.

Luckily my friend and genius, Dr Marc, has developed one of the best whole home water filtration + re-structuring systems on the planet.

You deserve the best. A whole home system can protect your family from harmful toxins and provide you with the life-force, prana filled water you deserve.

Extreme Wellness Filters: The World's Best Water Filters


Why It’s Far More Important to Filter Bathing Water than Drinking Water

Dylan Smith bathing in a waterfall

Many people use a filter for their drinking water, yet don’t realise it’s far more important to assure that their bathing water quality is optimum by also filtering their bathing water.

Here are The 10 top reasons why it’s more important to filter your shower and bath water, than your drinking water:

1) You’re exposed to a much greater volume of water and hence toxic chemical load through bathing than drinking.

2) Bathing in heated water leads to out-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and toxic disinfectant by-products which are inhaled.

3) Hot water opens pores and allows volatile compounds to be absorbed through the large surface area of the skin and lungs.

4) Toxic compounds absorbed through the lungs and skin enter directly into the bloodstream without being processed by the liver.

5) Toxic compounds irritate the mucous membranes of your eyes, nose, mouth, respiratory tract and vagina (if you have one).

6) Toxic compounds reduce the skin's water-holding capacity, aggravate eczema, dandruff and atopic dermatitis, and contribute to dry, itchy skin.

7) Toxic compounds in bathing water disrupt your skin’s microbial balance which makes it harder to keep your skin healthy.

8) Toxins in your bathing water strip the natural oils from your hair and accelerate hair loss while making hair dry, brittle and less manageable.

9) Minerals in hard water prevent soap fully lathering, this leaves soapy film clogging your pores and coating your hair.

10) Toxic compounds released into the air by hot showers and baths spread throughout the house causing damage and erosion.

Diagram of Extreme Walter filters portraying the compounds in low quality water

But it's not all bad news...

Here's 3 things you can do today to avoid more toxicity from your shower and bath.

a) You can try to reduce your toxic exposure to the compounds in poor-quality-bathing-water by taking shorter or less frequent showers, having colder showers, shutting the water off while soaping up and ensuring you use an exhaust fan and have adequate ventilation during bathing.

b) You can also fill a bath with very hot water and leave it to cool down and then bathe after the toxic gases have evaporated (be sure to use an exhaust fan).

c) The very best way to reduce your toxic exposure from bathing (and drinking) water that has poor quality filtering or no filtering at all is to use a whole house filtration system that works with both HOT and cold water.

Here's 3 things you can do today to avoid more toxicity from your shower and bath.

The Problem:

Many water filtration systems on the market are expensive, low quality, unscientific and not all of them work in both hot and cold water.

The Solution:

My friend, Dr Marc has been researching wellness and integrative medicine and for more than 30 years and this has led him to become a world expert on water.

A New Integration:

After many years searching for the world’s best water filter, Dr Marc has integrated the best water filtration technology and equipment to produce the Extreme Wellness Water Filter System.

This system removes all chlorine, pesticides, heavy metals, parasites, bacteria, sediment, viruses, microbes and toxic chemicals. These filters are so powerful they have even been tested to remove radio-active waste!

And best of all, the micro-pore technology allows for extremely rapid flow filters and use with both hot and cold water, meaning you can filter water for your shower, bath, dishwasher and washing machine all at once without any interruption in flow.

Rigorously tested, backed and approved by some of the world’s leading epidemiology, radioactivity labs and toxicology organisations (including the Louis Pasteur Institute) this system has my full approval.

As you know, I only ever endorse the highest quality products for my community and these get my full approval.

If you’re looking to up-level the wellbeing of yourself and your family, I firmly believe a whole house system is the best way to go.  You deserve the best.

Fluoride: The Definitive Truth & Your Water Supply | Merilyn Haines #015

FLUORIDE: One of the most pernicious toxins!

But people don’t quite fully understand it and thus are confused which results in people not averting the dangers of fluoride.

Learn the cold hard facts and science and understand the situation occurring in one of your life basics, your water supply!

Fluoride is a sensitive and controversial topic, but it is also confusing for people because they hear so many different things.

That is why we need to get definitive.

And by the end of this episode, I hope you are definitive about your view on fluoride.

We are not going to tell you what to do, what water to use.

We are going to give you the cold hard science and the cold hard facts. You have a right to know about the industrial systems that are providing society.

Then, you can go ahead and make an INFORMED decision on what you, your community, your children, your animals - drink and bathe in.

About Merilyn Haines

Merilyn is a co-founder of Queenslanders for Safe Water, a group which holds concerns about adverse health effects of water fluoridation and the issue that it is unethical mass medication.

Merilyn is now retired, but worked for over 30 years as a medical laboratory scientist in both the government and private sectors.

She first became concerned about water fluoridation many years ago when a close relative health suffered from water fluoridation.

Merilyn has played a major role in removing fluoride in water supplies across the state of Queensland by educating governments on the issue so that they themselves formally reject fluoridation.

Queensland Interventions:

When mandatory fluoridation was being introduced to Queensland in 2008, Queenslanders for Safe Water regularly contacted each Queensland MP and sent them many scientific publications and articles on fluoridation.

When state-mandated fluoridation was overturned end of 2012, Queenslanders for Safe Water then started contacting every Councillor in every Qld Council with information.

Merilyn, along with a medical colleague gave presentations to a number of Qld Councils.

There are now 29 Qld Councils which have formally rejected fluoridation.


In this Episode we Discuss:

What got Merilyn into being an activist

My sister suffered severe and distressing dermatitis when she moved to fluoridated Townsville – then one of the few fluoridated towns in Qld.

Being such a controversial and heated topic, and I thank you for being on the front line here, What Hurdles or friction have you suffered?

Defamation and verbal abuse – mostly from a very senior Qld Health Dentist who is the Qld govt appointed lobbyist for forced fluoridation.

At public meetings I have both inferred I am a liar, or outright called a liar by this dentist. On radio and he has claimed that I make up statistics. In newspaper articles, I and other activists opposed to fluoridation are referred to as nutters, flat earthers, conspiracy theorists, extreme fringe groups and anti-vaxxers.  

Types of Fluoride

It’s not just one chemical. It’s not just a simple yes or no. It’s not B&W.

  1. Calcium Fluoride occurs in nature and naturally found in the body. However, high levels in water cause devastating dental and skeletal fluorosis and other damage in a number of countries.
  2. We do point that the most common fluoride chemicals deliberately added to drinking water do not even occur in nature (Sodium Silicofluoride and Hydrofluorosilicic Acid) but are created from the fluoride waste captured in the smokestacks of phosphate fertiliser plants.
  3. Silicofluorides have never been tested. They don’t clean them up, they have heavy metals in them.
  4. These chemicals have never properly tested for safety: “Fluorosilicates have never been tested for safety in humans.” ~ Dr. Hardy Limeback, BSc, DDS, PhD
  5. Liquid Hydrofluorosilicic Acid used in NSW or Victoria comes from the Incitec Pivot fertiliser plant in Geelong.
  6. In West Australia it comes from the Wesfarmers owned CSBP fertiliser plant. Hydrofluorosilicic Acid is extremely dangerous and extremely corrosive and has to be tankered in special rubber lined tankers. It comes directly from the fertiliser plants to water treatment plants.Videos show it burning through concrete at a concentrated level. And at a diluted level, what do you think it’s doing on a cellular level?
  7. Sodium fluoride is usually added to water in smaller rural towns because it comes in smaller bags. Sodium fluoride was the first chemical to be used to fluoridate water, it was originally from the waste fluoride left over from Aluminium smelting – but then they moved mostly to the Silicofluoridesfrom phosphate fertilisers.
  8. Sulfuryl Fluoride– another kettle of fish that most have never heard of. It is a termite fumigant allowed to be used in America and Australia. In Australia, its use is allowed with certain foods – all whole grains, all whole nuts, all dried fruits. Much higher levels in food allowed than in water, but no follow up testing is done to see how much fluoride is in foods. –
  9. The fluoride added to toothpaste pharmaceutical grade; water fluoridation chemicals are industrial grade and are allowed to contain small amounts of heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury.

Why was Fluoride Initially Added to Water and Why Does it Continue to Be? – Most countries in the world DO NOT fluoridate!

Fluoridation is an American idea that started in the US in the 1940s when World War 2 was still raging.

In the 1920s in America a dentist was working for an aluminum company called ALCOA in Colorado investigating whether Aluminium in water was causing ugly brown stains on teeth.

At the time aluminum saucepans were suspected of causing cancer. It was discovered that it was actually fluoride in water that caused the bad stains (now known as dental fluorosis).

Some years later there was an association made with higher fluoride levels in water and less tooth decay.

It was not investigated whether higher levels of calcium or other minerals in the water were responsible for less decay.

An executive of ALCO resigned his position and went to work for what became the US Public Health Service, where he successfully lobbied for the introduction of fluoridation.

A ten-year trial was started, after 5 years, even though children born at the beginning of the trial had not even yet received their permanent teeth, the trial has declared a success and fluoridation was rapidly forced on many USA communities.

ALCO had found a market for its waste fluoride by supplying Sodium Fluoride to water treatment plants.

Previous to that Sodium Fluoride was in general use only as an insecticide.

Fluoride was a by-product from the pesticide and aluminum industry and needed to be disposed of as hazardous waste, and it is very expensive to dispose hazardous waste.

By adding fluoride to drinking water, phosphate fertiliser manufactures get paid for their fluoride waste, they don’t have to pay to dispose of what would be toxic waste. It would be very expensive to dispose of fluoride as a toxic waste.

Usually, they add fluorosilicic acid. An acid where sodium fluoride or other mixtures and forms. This is synthetic and plenty of studies show the harm of this.

Australia was an early follower of this USA practice, with Beaconsfield in 1953 being the first town in Australia to fluoridate.

Most countries in the world have never adopted fluoridation, only 5 % or less of the world’s population fluoridate their drinking water, - which means 95 % of the world’s population do not.

Most countries in Europe don’t fluoridate water, however, a few counties allow the sale of fluoridated salt (for personal use only).

Although the WHO advocates fluoridation, a large majority of the countries that are members of the WHO do not fluoridate their drinking water.

Britain fluoridates, but only 10 % of it’s population.

London doesn’t fluoridate, neither does Paris, Rome, Berlin, Amsterdam etc, etc.

China does not fluoridate - however, almost all the Sodium Silicofluoride added to Australian water is imported from China.

There are 193 countries that are members of the World Health Organisation (WHO)- 168  of those 193 WHO member countries don’t do water fluoridation!

Israel was a fluoridating country, in 2014 Israel ended fluoridation after nearly 35 years of fluoridating, with Health Minister citing health concerns.

There are more people in the USA drinking fluoridated water than the rest of the world put together.

Mining phosphorus (bones) released a by product of fluoride. Then they dumped it in different locations but the problem is after dumping it caused dead zones - dead water or land.

They say it is for our dental health. To prevent dentist visits and save money.

Cholera Epidemic in the UK

London’s Soho district were falling ill in large numbers in the 1850s. They developed explosive diarrhea which was watery and white and it never stopped. Each patient would produce 20 liters of stools per day which was dumped in the cesspools below their cramped houses in Soho. They all had cholera.

Dr. Snow never was able to culture cholera from the water supply because we did not have the ability to do such things in the 1850’s. His work led to the disabling of the water pump and he went on to chlorinate the Broad Street pump. This is how water sanitation took hold in all of Britain late in the 19th century.  This is where water fluoridation ideas first got its foothold.

Ethics:

Mass medication- treating ALL people - all ages, all body types.

Once they learn this ability and procedure of putting this chemical in the water supply, they may put other waste products into water like - lithium to decrease manic depression or statin drugs to deal with cholesterol.

Once you start something like this, where do you stop?

This form of Mass Medication violates two principles of medical ethics:

  1. The principle of controlled dose -can’t control how much water people drink
  2. The principle of informed consent to medication

Since when does the government care about our health and want to medicate us? – Specifically our dental health.

How to truly address dental health as a collective nation.

Techniques and education.

Chemicals cocktails are synergistic

Exposure to a mixture of chemicals is far more harmful than exposure to individual chemicals.

It significantly increases all sorts of biological effects.

Ayurveda says the same with bhasmas: Metallic preparations as medicine in Ayurveda. Synergising different bhasmas changes the therapeutic action.

Fluoride + aluminum becomes an endocrine disruptor – that means it disrupts hormonal signals.

Aluminofluoride complexes- With the appearance of acid rain and the use of aluminium in industry, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of uncomplexed aluminium in ecosystems.

  • The cause of dialysis encephalopathy / dialysis dementiaor dementia in renal failure patients. (Alfrey et al. 1976; Meiri et al. 1991). Speech disorders precede dementia and convulsions. The mode of death has been reported as sudden cardiac arrest usually associated with acute pulmonary oedema (Elliot et al. 1978).

Lead + fluoride = neuro-toxic effect.

Chlorine

Use of chlorine in tap water. Use it to disinfect, it takes away a lot of pathologies. That makes sense.

But don’t drink the chlorine.

Fluoride, on the other hand, doesn’t have a place in water.

Chlorine reacts with metals and causes a carcinogenic by-product.

Fluoride related harm and health implications

Fluoridated water brushes past teeth for a few seconds when drinking, water is swallowed and the fluoride is absorbed from stomach and intestine. Then the health complications occur.

Dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis

First stages can mimic arthritis symptoms, people who have kidney dysfunction will accumulate more fluoride in their bodies (bones, tendons).

Pathology of Dental Fluorosis and Skeletal Fluorosis:

 Dental fluorosis in your teeth and bones. You see it in your teeth. White patches on the teeth = toxic levels of fluoride.

  • Fluoride bonds to the phosphorus in the appetite of the bones as readily as calcium does, since fluoride, like calcium, is a double bond electrical charge.
  • Your body kind of thinks it’s calcium and deposits it in the bones and teeth.
  • When it gets in the teeth it’s kind of like calcium.
  • Dental industry thinks this is good because it’s like a hard shield on your teeth, it’s harder than calcium. But a shield can chip and break easily. You want a more flexible and dynamic shield.
  • This idea was sold to dentists. Teeth can chip and break.

WHO dental health data over the last 50 years shows that child tooth decay has decreased just the same in non-fluoridated as in the few heavily fluoridated countries (Australia is heavily fluoridated).

One quarter of 11– 12-year-olds in NSW fluoridated areas have Dental Fluorosis
* 2007 NSW Child Dental Health Survey

 Dental Fluorosis

  • 58% of adolescent adults have dental fluorosis (most recent, 2017). This is not just a cosmetic blemish (as proponents tend to think), it is a signal and a bio-marker that something metabolically is going on with fluoride. We are getting too much fluoride.
  • When fluoridation was started, only 10 - 15% of the public would get dental fluorosis, and it would be hardly noticeable, not significant at all.
  • 41% of adolescent adults had dental fluorosis (a few years ago).
  • 20% have moderate fluorosis. - Way too much.
  • 2 % have severe fluorosis in the US. This is not fair for that 2 %!

Does Fluoride Prevent Dental Decay?

There are studies that show topical fluoride helps reduce dental cavities. However, this treatment of topical fluoride is indicated in two kind of people:

  1. People who developed cavities from radiation - Those who have had a lot of X-ray to your head or cancer, using fluoride toothpaste will be beneficial.
  2. Rampant dental cavities - When you are eating to much junk food, sugar and not cleaning your teeth. A bit of toxic chemical fluoride on the surface on your teeth will reduce the cavity a little, but it’s not going to fix it. Better change your diet (the root cause). And brush your teeth.

Abnormality of the mouth microbiome (product of gut microbiome).

Some cultures like Korea, 98% don’t have a cavity. They have not disrupted their microbiome.

Drinking fluoride for dental health is like eating sunblock to protect your skin for the sun.

Hypersensitivity

Allergic type symptoms such as dermatitis, skin rashes, migraines, GI pain. 

Osteosarcoma in young men

Neuro-Toxin

It clearly has a role in mental effects and is a known neuro-toxin.

Currently, the National Toxicology Program in USA is underway to demonstrate evidence that will possibly legally classify fluoride as a neuro-toxin.

Fluoride is used in anti-depressants like Prozac – which has 30% fluoride.

The world is facing a “silent pandemic” of “chemical brain drain” with increasing rates of neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention- deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments

Fluoride is a known neurodevelopmental toxin .

Children

More than 50 studies on human link fluoride lower IQ. Reduction in children’s IQ.

  • There is a large body of work showing fluoride exposure can impair cognitive function in animals.
  • There is recent research linking fluoride ingestion by pregnant mothers to lowered IQ in their offspring.
  • The US government halved the fluoride recommendation in 2015 after seeing the research related to IQ.
  • Infants are getting a dose that is 10 - 100x more than they should have even by the conservative EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) of USA recommendations.
  • 80% of children up to the age of 3-4 are getting significantly more fluoride than they should.
  • Was 0.06 mg/day - but the EPA raised the norm because it was so prevalent in our lives.

Children compared to adults kids have:

  • Higher food, fluid and air intake /kg
  • Higher absorption and metabolic rate
  • Immature immune and detox systems
  • More exposure to the ground
  • More hand to mouth behaviour
  • Longer latency period to develop diseases

Very dangerous during pregnancy.

  • 5mg of fluoride tablets are contraindicated during pregnancy. This is the equivalent to 500ml of water.
  • Because Fluoride is a Teratogen - it is a chemical that destroys life as it is forming during the embryo stage. 

According to the largest ever study on Fluoride:
If a pregnant woman exposes her unborn baby to fluoride, there is a significant decline in IQ later in life.
(Bashash, Thomas, Hu et al, 2017, Environmental Health Perspectives)

 Bottle fed babies get a much larger dose than breastfed babies –

Breast milk has only a minuscule 0.004 ppm fluoride*
*Source for amount fluoride in breast milk - 2006 National Research Council ( NRC )  “Fluoride in Drinking Water”

If you add NSW fluoridated water 1.0 ppm  ( = 1.0 mg/l) to powdered infant formula, the water you are adding contains 250 times more fluoride than what babies would ever get from breast milk  (1.0 ppm divided by 0.004 ppm = 250 times).

This at a time when their brains and the blood-brain barrier is still forming

Did nature make a mistake not having 1mg /L fluoride in breast milk?

De-calcifies the pineal gland

Pineal gland – deep in the center of a brain is a gland the size of a grain of rice.
Essential role on how we sleep, make decisions, perceive reality, light meditator – hormone secretor and related with circadian rhythms.

  • Fluoride accumulates there
  • Results in reduces the gland’s synthesis of melatonin.

As of June 2018, a total of 60 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence, and over 40 studies have investigated the relationship fluoride and learning/memory in animals.

It was used in Nazi Germany to put into the water because it calcifies the pineal gland - which governs your individuality, free will, intuition and sovereignty.

In 1950 major George Jordan of the US Airforce testified it was used in the water supply in concentration camps.

Hypo-Thyroidsm

  • May reduce thyroid.
  • People with Hypothyroidism - should absolutely stop fluoride water.
  • Early 20thCentury - Sodium Fluoride used by European & South American doctors to reduce thyroid activity in patients with overactive thyroid ( Merck Index 1968 )

Energy levels

  • Fluoride is a dielectric blocker (well known).
  • It impairs and inhibits your body’s ability to take the energy from the sun and convert it into energy for your mitochondria to use to produce ATP.
  • Decreases light energy in the water that you can use to make a battery, and generate a charge in you.
  • You are shutting down your body ability to make energy.
  • Tired, fatigue.
  • Every sub-cellular component, particularly mitochondrial action is destroyed.

Hardly any health professional studies molecular biology. They are unaware of how mitochondria work.

Fluoride is a metabolic mitochondrial poison, thus it contributes to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease like alzheimers (and we have an epidemic of alzheimers coming).

Bioaccumulation over the lifespan –chronic disease.

It is very hard to remove Fluoride from the body  

We only get rid of 50% of fluoride over a 24 hour period.

It is hard for the kidneys to detoxify the fluoride.

The PEW leaked document

A petroleum fracking company that delivers advice to people on marketing toxic waste for fluoridation.

“Opponents are likely to win if the dialogue is trapped inside this message wheel.”

Ingesting Fluoride

The big problem is swallowing it.

Although you can get fluoride for free from your water, fluoride is a prescription drug. FDA wouldn’t even approve it due to no efficacy. 

Steam Rooms / Hot Showers

  • Turning volatile compounds into a gas (vapour).
  • You are inhaling that and it goes into the blood and brain.
  • Pores are opened up.
  • Chloroform gas in a sealed room.
  • Trans-dermal penetration.
  • Reduce times in the bath tubs when pores open up more.

Get a filter or BE the filter

“People would rather laugh at the fable of the water they are not drinking than honestly face the sobering reality of the water they are drinking.”

The Sun as a Divine Healer for Optimal Health | Dylan Smith and Laura Poole #010

Throughout evolution, exposure to sunlight and the photosynthesis of vitamin D has been critically important for the evolution of land vertebrates. But all of a sudden in the past few decades, we have been burying the Sun from our lives while simultaneously increasing our exposure to artificial light. Could this be a foundational mistake for our health? Has the status quo's fear of the sun been blown out of proportion? 

Circadian medicine won the most recent Nobel Peace Prize saying that a resolution towards chronic disease is to live in-tune with our natural circadian rhythms. Simply, 'go back to nature' is now the prescription for healing. Dylan and Laura will share how to work with the Sun to optimise your health and immune system, so you can re-establish this important and foundational human-Sun relationship.

This recording is from a talk where Laura interviewed Dylan in Melbourne in September 2018.

About Laura Poole

Laura Poole is a Vedic meditation teacher, speaker, writer and community builder. She has trained intensively over the past decade with great masters in Australia, India and the United States. Based in Melbourne, Laura shares the wisdom of Vedic meditation, Vedanta and Ayurveda, making it relevant for living in today’s world. She is a truly dedicated leader and entrepreneur in the Melbourne meditation space, inspiring people to take care of their mental and physical health while encouraging them to make a real difference in the world.

Laura is the founder of Mahasoma - a movement that is creating a new cultural narrative through the embodiment of wisdom and practice. She was also an original co-founder/co-creator of 1 Giant Mind Australia and its free 'Learn to Meditate' app.


In this Episode we Discuss:
