Well, I had high levels of TSH anyway - years before I used the CT. So I didn't noticed any increase, but because I don't use "traditional" MD's, it's hard to know what all may have gone onthe first time I used it.
This last time I was on it (last summer), I was getting my blood tested every month at least, and my doc was watching my thyroid hormones -all of them - closely as that's what she was specifically treating me for, and my TSH never raised when I started the CT or did they raise up any time during the 5 months I was on it.
It has to just be one of those things that shows us how unique we all are from each other. Can you get your children's thyroid hormone levels tested regularly? If so, I would encourage you to do so, no matter what treatment they end up on.
When you are using the CT, the only detox item you can't use just at any time is the binders - all the others are fine. They help move the toxins out of the body, but don't interfere with the way the CT works. When I was infected the first time and going through treatments (2010), I detoxed all day long, every single day. I saw it as my "job", so I never took a day off from doing every single thing I could to help my body detox.
