Thyroid destroying toxin dumped into your drinking water

Reach a certain age, and it hits you like an oncoming train. You're drained of energy... flabby around the middle... and sadder than a country song about a girl who left you and took your dog.

Complain to a mainstream doc, and he'll say you're just getting older. But I know the REAL reason, and it's got nothing to do with your age.

It's your thyroid -- the "master gland" in charge of energy, metabolism and your overall wellbeing. And right now, it's coming under constant attack from a toxic metal in your own home.

Most American communities deliberately pollute their water with fluoride, and you don't have to be a card-carrying conspiracy theorist to believe it's wrecking your body from the inside.

New research proves beyond doubt that the levels flowing from your kitchen sink are enough to cause serious and even debilitating thyroid damage.

And if you live in an area with fluoridated water yourself, you're facing double the risk of hypothyroidism, according to the study in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

The study finds that the risk kicks in at levels of 0.3 milligrams per liter -- which is miniscule compared to the 0.7 milligrams per liter that most communities start at. Many contain double those levels or more.

The damage doesn't kick in overnight or even over a few years. It can take decades -- and by the time your own thyroid is reeling from this constant assault, you're in middle age or beyond.

That's why your doc will blame the calendar.

Be glad that he's wrong. There isn't a cure in the world that can turn back time -- but there are easy ways to restore your thyroid function so it can get back to work again and you can lose that spare tire, regain your energy and lift your mood. I recommend supplementing with the minerals zinc, copper and selenium for starters.

And don't forget to filter your water with either a water distiller or reverse osmosis -- the only ways to ensure that fluoride and other thyroid-wrecking toxins are completely removed.

If you suspect a thyroid problem, make an appointment to see me at my clinic in the San Diego area. I can run some tests, and get you back on track if it turns out you have a thyroid condition.
