Once your body generates genuine thyroxine, you can stop taking its fake counterpart—Synthroid

We all have a butterfly in our throat. It is the thyroid gland that rests between the protruding cartilage at the anterior of the throat—referred to as “Adam’s apple”—and the bronchial tube.

As the largest endocrine gland in our body, the thyroid has the shape of a butterfly with its wings spread out and wrapped around the bronchial tube. It generates a hormone called thyroxine, storing it and secreting it into the bloodstream. Thyroxine is instrumental in  promoting the metabolic processes of the body, such as metabolic speed, and temperature regulation.

Generally, when the thyroid is normal, it is not palpable or visible. When it becomes abnormal, it is enlarged. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are the representative diseases that manifest in the thyroid gland along with other thyroid diseases, including thyroiditis, thyroid nodule, thyroid cancer, and the like.

Thyroxine Levels

Too much as well as too little thyroxine is problematic. As it is important to maintain moderation in all aspects of our lives, an appropriate amount of thyroid hormone needs to be secreted for the maintenance of good health. Problems such as hyperthyroidism manifest if the secretion is excessive, and hypothyroidism if the secretion is inadequate.


With the manifestation of hyperthyroidism, all the metabolic processes of the body become excessive. The patient will have a haggard appearance, manifesting anxiety and restlessness, increasingly displaying other symptoms such as fast speech patterns, difficulties in withstanding hot weather, reduction in body weight despite eating well, systemic weakness of the body, and weakening in muscular strength.

Moreover, the patient will become hypersensitive with inability to concentrate properly, as well as becoming angry easily due to an elevated level of anxiety. The eyes will become bulged with substantial dryness and discomfort.

On the other hand, hypothyroidism will manifest in lethargy and lack of enthusiasm, along with severe feelings of fatigue due to the slowdown in the actions of thyroxine through peripheral tissues. The patient will easily get cold and suffer from depression due to a weakening of the body and the emotional state.

Other symptoms of hypothyroidism that may manifest include a lowered appetite and an aggravation of indigestion, swelling of the throat, and a hoarse voice due to the enlargement of the thyroid gland.

Curing Thyroid Disease 

Thyroid disease can be cured by fortifying the tonsils. Healthy people maintain a consistent blood concentration of thyroxine because the secretion of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is appropriately controlled by the pituitary gland in accordance with the concentration of thyroid hormone in the blood.

It is the tonsils that maintain the health of the immune system.

It is the tonsils that maintain the health of the immune system. The tonsils are the organs that produce an abundance of lymphocytes (small white blood cells that occur in the lymphatic system). Leukocytes perform a diverse range of functions, including combating viruses that infiltrate the body and restoring the injured parts of the body to their original state.

In particular, lymphocytes, which account for 25 percent of leukocytes (white blood cells), perform the special function of restoring damaged body tissues to their original states. Therefore, when the tonsils, the largest lymph glands in the body, become healthy, the function of the immune system will be optimized, thereby improving the body’s restorative ability.

The lymphatic system plays the core role in this mechanism, with the tonsils as the key organs. Therefore, if the health of the tonsils is improved through fortifying the cardiopulmonary functions, all the abnormalities of the throat can be cured naturally.

Healthy tonsils are like an “after-hours center” (with intelligent lymphocytes playing the role of technicians) that can cure an extensive range of diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, lumps and soars in the mouth, chapped tongue, as well as reflux esophagitis, and reflux laryngitis.

The Health of the Tonsils

With the production of the genuine product, fakes [synthetic hormones] can be eradicated. Since the tonsils are in charge of the management of the thyroid, they can only secrete the best quality lymphocytes in abundance if they are healthy. The tonsils have to be at their optimum in order to cure hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, as well as tumors of the thyroid, whether they are benign or malignant.

After about four months of continuous pulmonary cleansing therapy, cardiopulmonary functions will be fortified to improve the health of the tonsils, which in turn will fundamentally cure a wide range of thyroid diseases.

Amazingly, when a thyroid tumor is diagnosed as malignant, Western medicine resorts to a thyroidectomy of about half or the entire thyroid gland. Once the tonsils of the patients who have undergone thyroidectomy become healthy again, in general, thyroxine starts to be secreted again after about six months.

This was discovered accidentally during blood tests conducted on patients who were undergoing pulmonary cleansing therapy. It illustrates that the ability of our immune system to restore the somatic functions of our body simply exceeds our imagination.

I presume that the immune system, with its enhanced intelligence, instructed the adrenal cortex, an enormous manufacturing plant in our body for generation of hormones, to produce thyroxine in place of the excised thyroid gland.

When the adrenal cortex acts as the effective substitute for the thyroid gland, you will no longer have to rely on the imitation thyroid hormone, Synthroid, to ensure the supply of thyroid hormone. Therefore, patients who have undergone a thyroidectomy can confidently stop taking Synthroid.

Restoring Immunity

Treatment becomes easier when immunity is restored. Such miraculous results are only possible when immunity is fortified.

When noxious substances accumulate in the lungs, they damage the pulmonary cells, which leads to a degradation of the immune system.

I had the experience of witnessing the improvement of pulmonary functions in a member of the Korean national swimming team. His pulmonary functions improved by more than 15 percent during the treatment of his rhinitis.

When noxious substances accumulate in the lungs, they damage the pulmonary cells, which leads to a degradation of the immune system, thyroid diseases, and more

Through cleansing of the blood, (the key to a fortified immune system) the leukocytes were activated to thoroughly clean the severely polluted lung, thus increasing his lung capacity.

Moreover, thyroid tumors that are less than 0.5 centimeters will be eliminated within about four months in general. Tumors that are less than 1 centimeter can be fairly well removed within a year. In tumors that are larger than 1 centimeter, it is possible to clinically observe a substantial reduction in size as the result of continuous pulmonary cleansing therapy.

According to conclusive observations, it is possible to get rid of tumors without having to resort to surgery.

Once the pulmonary cleansing treatment begins, even malignant tumors begin to show signs of remission. It is through the fortification of the tonsils that successful prevention and even treatment of thyroid cancer is possible.

Thyroid diseases are not as serious as one might think. Once the tonsils are restored back to health, it is not difficult to restore the health of the thyroid gland within several months.
