Why Water Matters to Your Thyroid Health

July 15, 2021

Imagine that you are a woman who has been diagnosed with thyroid issues. And you're doing all the right things:
✅  You're taking your medication...
✅  You're eating right...
✅. You're exercising...
✅. You're getting adequate rest and sleep...
...but you live in a community that has fluoridated water.
Unbeknownst to you, you're drinking eight glasses of water a day not knowing that the chemicals in that water may be harming you and your thyroid function, leading to a possible diagnosis of thyroid disease. 

There are various drugs that are prescribed today for abnormal thyroid function. But back in the day, doctors prescribed fluoride. That's right!
The very thing that's in our water today, doctors would use to suppress thyroid function. It was generally shown that anywhere between two and five milligrams a day, which if you're drinking eight glasses of water a day, is more than enough to surpass your thyroid function, was what was recommended.
How crazy is that? Doing all the right things, and then you’re drinking water that has a chemical in it that is damaging your thyroid and suppressing its function.
That's just one example of what's happening with the chemicals in our lives.

Why Chemicals Matter

The other day, my wife and I were at the movie theater, and I got a text from a patient who was frustrated because she's not progressing as fast as she wanted to be. Then, the next day I talked to her on the phone, and sure enough, she's got some things in her life that she's being exposed to from a chemical standpoint that are potentially really hurting her. She just didn't know about it.

So many people that I see doing the right things either have an ongoing exposure to toxins, or have been exposed enough over a lifetime that they are harboring these chemicals in their body that won't allow their body to ever be healthy. The one thing that you can do is get rid of city water, if that's what you're drinking. Filter your water. Find a way. I have a well, and I made sure that my well water is clean through testing, but most don't have access to well water. In that case, you have to filter your water.

Chlorine is another thing that's in the water. Chlorine and fluoride are in the same family, and they compete with iodine in the thyroid. They will compete at the receptor site with iodine, meaning that iodine can't attach to the cells, and it can't send its signal. So, your body can't utilize it to manufacture more of the thyroid hormones. 

What You Can Do

That's just one example. So, if you're drinking city water, you've got to filter your water. My favorite water filter is manufactured by Berkey, and I'll tell you; it's pricey, but it's so worth it to take that extra measure in protecting your health. For all of us, even those who don't have a thyroid problem because, honestly, I could go into detail even as it relates to your husbands, how it could be contributing to weight gain, and fatigue, and things that we see in men across the board. In epidemic numbers, more and more, we're seeing so many of these Western-type, new-millennial-type diseases. So, I just wanted to bring that awareness to you and a couple of tips to help you make sure you're not affected by the harmful chemicals in most drinking water.
