FLUORIDE CAUSES HASHIMOTO'S THYROIDITIS RESULTING IN HYPOTHYROIDISM. FLUORIDE AFFECTS METABOLISM AND CONTRIBUTES TO HIGH CHOLESTEROL, CHRONIC FATIGUE, OVERWEIGHT AND RELATED PROBLEMS. IT ALSO AFFECTS BONES AND JOINTS AND CAN CAUSE DENTAL FLUOROSIS OR MOTTLED TEETH.

What Is The Thyroid?

The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, located in the neck. TSH or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone produced by the pituitary gland instruct the thyroid gland to produce T3 triiodothyronine and T4 thyroxine hormones. T3 and T4 are responsible for maintaining metabolic rate including control of fats and carbohydrate metabolism, energy levels at the cellular level and blood flow to organs around the body. The levels of TSH, T3 and T4 operate in a finely tuned balance depending on what your body requires.


Thyroid Gland
Thyroid hormones are also needed for normal development of organs such as the heart, the brain and teeth.

The thyroid gland also plays an important role in bone and calcium metabolism.

What Is Hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism is a condition most commonly caused by Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disease sometimes known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, autoimmune thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis.

With Hashimoto's thyroiditis, antibodies react against proteins in the thyroid gland, causing gradual destruction of the gland itself and making the gland unable to produce thyroid T3 and T4 hormones that the body needs. TSH levels become elevated as instructions to produce more T3 and T4 hormones are increased.

In his book Fluoride Fatigue. Fluoride Poisoning: is fluoride in your drinking water - and from other sources - making you sick?", Bruce Spittle notes the similarities in symptoms between chronic fluoride toxicity and thyroid or iodine deficiency disorders. He explains:

Aluminium fluoride can mimic the action of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) by activating a calcium-transducing G-protein receptor, G q/11, in the thyroid leading, via a feedback mechanism with increased intracellular cAMP, to desensitization of the TSH receptor and ultimately hypothyroidism. Fluoride, like TSH, has the ability to influence all aspects of thyroid hormone homeostasis in all tissues where the TSH receptor is expressed, which includes the brain and bone as well as the thyroid, including iodine uptake and utilization, thyroid hormone homeostasis, deiodination, and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) activity. Deiodination involves the conversion of the hormone produced in the thyroid gland, thyroxine or T4, to the active thyroid hormone triiodothyronine, T3.

Fluoride clearly affects the balance of hormones produced and those controlling the thyroid, resulting in disruptions to metabolic rate and produces a range of symptoms including:
  • chronic fatigue
  • feel cold
  • weight gain
  • depression
  • dry skin/skin rash or itching, especially after showers
  • frequent need to urinate/urinary tract irritation
  • aches and stiffness in muscles and bones; arthritic like pains
  • dizziness
  • visual disturbances
  • brittle nails
  • hair loss
Eventually the thyroid gland dies. Without treatment, death can result after about 10yrs.

Treatment for Hashimoto's Disease

Traditionally, Hashimoto's Disease is treated by taking artificial thyroid hormone medication for the rest of your life.

Alternatively if you have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and not yet taking thyroid medication, try the fluoride free regime. I took no medication and the fluoride free regime is WORKING FOR ME. Furthermore, now that I have normal metabolism, I am no longer OVERWEIGHT.
This site is dedicated to all who know that fluoridation of water causes adverse affects on health and especially to those who dedicate their lives to this and/or put their careers on the line by speaking out to alert others of the facts.

My family and I are truely indebted to you. I am now enjoying the best of health having recovered from Hashimoto's Disease. I have taken NO MEDICATION whatsoever.

I hope I can inspire you to try this because it is WORKING FOR ME.

There's more
than just water in it...
