I don't know how I kept over looking it, because it is mentioned in all 6 of the books that I’ve ordered. I guess that I thought that what I have just developed on its own and wasn’t caused and continuing to be caused by something.
The two illnesses that I have are called hyperandrogenism (not adrenal fatigue) and hypothyroidism type 2 (tissue resistance to thyroid hormones T4 is not being converted to much needed T3). Adrenal fatigue and hyperandrogenism symptoms are exactly the same. People who have adrenal fatigue have low DHEA’s (estrogen, testosterone, etc) but I have high DHEA’s which is called hyperandrogenism.
Hyperandrogenism is recognized by MD’s. Adrenal fatigue is not. Not being able to convert T4 to T3 is also recognized by MD’s, I should not have any problems getting treatment now that I have my results.
Doctors never tested my T3 level…they only tested my TSH which was normal. My ZRT lab results also said that my TSH levels was normal. Which means that I have more than enough thyroid hormones in my blood, but since T4 isn’t being converted to T3 I’m automatically hypothyroid and symptomatic. This is recognized by MD’s. I don’t know why MD’s believe that the TSH shows them everything that they need to see…because it doesn’t.
Even though it was mentioned in all 6 of my books I never caught on until a website actually spelled it out. It said that mercury filling causes tissue resistance to thyroid hormones. Not only mercury, but lead, pesticides, the mercury in immunizations and medications, etc can cause hypothyroidism. I have mercury fillings. I had my first put in at age 6 , and more later on. I believe that I only have 3, but I may have more since they say that mercury fillings can be white too. If I have over 3 fillings I can’t tell, because they are white…and I don’t know if they are mercury or not.
Some people never have symptoms, and aren‘t affected. It depends on how strong your immune system is. I know that I never had a strong immune system, because I was always sick as a child (before fillings). I’ve learned that it may have been the B12 shots that helped me to not become noticeably symptomatic as a child. I should have been very symptomatic, but the B12 was doing it’s job. I took B12 shot up until age 8. I was taken off, because my iron level rose. I was still anemic, but the doctor thought that multi-vitamins could take me the rest of the way. I finally figured out why multi-vitamins couldn’t and didn’t take me the rest of the way…because it wasn’t enough to defeat mercury.
What’s happening to me is that selenium is binding to mercury (toxin) and together they are leaving my body. Selenium is needed to convert T4 to T3. I also need selenium to rid my body of toxins like mercury, but when there’s to much toxin selenium have trouble converting T4 to T3, because it‘s busy getting rid of toxins. Mercury effects the thyroid, insulin, estrogen, testosterone, pituitary, hypothalamus, and adrenaline (adrenals).
Dental mercury removal and heavy metal detoxification will restore my vitamin minerals and trace elements to normal levels. The thyroid with the help of hormones and minerals can be rebuilt. If toxins are left in my body I would have to take thyroid replacement hormones for the rest of my life. Which is why it’s good to have the cause of my problem removed, so I need to find a dentist that can remove my fillings. I believe that I only have 3 mercury fillings.
I didn't even know that mercury causes candida.

Excellent info about
the thyroid gland:
"Hypothyroidism - The Other Side of the Story"
Tests finally proved that I'm suffering from Adrenal Fatigue and Type 2 Hypothyroidism (is defined as tissue resistance to thyroid hormones at the cellular level)Daily I take:
Three Lac along with Oxygen Elements (twice daliy for Candida Yeast Overgrowth)
of Magnesium (key metabolic mineral for thyroid function)200mcg extra
of Chromium (key metabolic mineral for thyroid function)200mcg extra
of Selenium (key metabolic mineral and the key step to thyroid balance...it helps convert T4 to T3) 1000mg extra
of Vitamin C2 tablets 4 times daily
