BTD Forums  /  Testimonials  /  Funny effect from BTD
Posted by: Mastre, Monday, March 19, 2007, 12:57pm
I've been working with BTD for about three months now, and I notice a number of small changes. I lost 3 kg of weight, my sense of smell (which has been missing for many years) is flashing back occasionally, my hypoglycemia seems to be gone and, here's the funny one: I can take warmer water in the shower!

As long as I remember I've been more sensitive to heat than others. What I experienced as warm would be cool or lukewarm to them; what they felt comfortably warm was painfully hot to me. (Showering with boyfriends have not been high on my list.)

Now I can turn up the hot water! Would be interesting to know why my heat perception is changing.

Sounds like you are getting into balance :-)

Yes, I think when you eat better, things in your body start to work themselves out and get more balanced.

Perhaps your body is returning to the state it was once regulated at in regards to bodily reactions towards heat temperature.

Mastre,

The next thing you should do is take the secretor test.

A lot of us find things changing that we never would have thought to look at, things that have been with us so long they were off our radar. Then, Hello, something changes (for the better) and we are shocked and delighted. And our confidence in BTD gets boosted even more.. 8)

your thyroid is functioning better hence the less aversion to heat

My thought at first too.  Could be your thyroid is beginning to behave.  That'll make it easier to get along with all those guys too.  :)  Low thryroid makes us.....grumpy. >:(

Mastre,

If you think what's happened after three months is amazing, wait until months 10 and 11.  You will develop the ability to shoot laser beams out of your eyes and successfully evade the IRS.

You know, the thyroid is something I've suspected for many years, but every time I test it the results come back normal. I've had low body temperature, low energy, depressive tendencies and a couple of more symptoms I've read are typical for thyroid problems. It's only the test results that doesn't fit into the picture. It will be really interesting to see how this develops.

Ronagon; I'm looking forward to that!  ;D

Well...a natural thyroid supplement won't hurt you any even if the tests read normal.  A simple L-tyrosine supplement may help.  My blood tests are consistently a little low even if I take a supplement.  But I feel better taking it, so I take it despite the readings still saying "low."

Could be it's adrenal fatigue rather than low thyroid.  There's another thread on the subject now (I think it's labeled Elimination or something, but we're discussing adrenal fatigue and how to treat it with sea salt).

Mastre, will you help us out a little?  There's been a discussion on autism and PDD in the Eat Right 4 Your Baby section.  Will you go read and post your thoughts? (The thread is entitled "PDD".)  I gave my views (being on the spectrum also--the far end) and I'd love your feedback.  I know the mothers/teachers reading it would appreciate it as well.

Mastre,

Do you have problems with constipation, also?  Dr. D discusses how bladderwrack supplements are enormously effective for constipation and other thyroid-related issues in type O's.  You might try his supplement called Deflect, which is full of bladderwrack.

When did you have the test?  The thresholds were changed for what's normal.  Take a look at About.thyoid.com, Mary Shomon's site for all kinds of thyroid information.

Maybe your diet has increased your folate level to overcome a problem caused by a MTHFR gene ploymorphism.
Quoted from Jeffrey Bland presentation quote from J. Nutrition 2002
A common C677T transition in the MTHFR gene results in a greater sensitivity to heat, which can be overcome by 5000 mcg dose of 5-formylatetrahydrofolate.
