thyroid - coconut oil, bladderwrack, & ACV

hi all, this is long so TY in advance for your help!

after months of working out 4-5x a week (if not more) for a min of 30 - 40 min a day (often longer) as well as significant diet changes (cutting out sugars, focus on fresh rather than processed foods, cutting out snacks and sweets, etc.), i've seen very little change in my weight.

i've gotten stronger, and my cardio has improved as im not winded as easily and can jog longer/father and am no longer sore after almost ANY workout (even when i up the intensity). so my muscles are strong and my cardio is getting better...yippee. but my weight...grrrr! come to think of it, the only time i lost weight several years ago was about 10 pounds and that was taking vitamins regularly, which i started again.

in passing, i thought to ask my mother if we had any history of hypothyroidism in our fam and WOAH my great-grandmother died in the early 1900s of goiter due to hypothyroidism, it was an underlying cause for my grandmother's diabetes, and my mother is on medication for it. yeah, im 35 and no one told me til now. that said - i do NOT want to go the medicine route and looked into natural supps.

so i'm trying bladderwrack, l-tyrosine, and organic coconut oil in conjunction with ACV - heard lots of good stuff, and just ordered some and would love to hear feedback. do you have any experience with these supps? or with hypothyroidism? what about with stubborn weight loss? i'd love to hear more!

also for ACV - does it have to be organic/pure or is regular ok? (all i have at the moment is regular)

thanks!

You need to get dr david brownstein's book (amazon has it) "iodine: why you need it; why you can't live without it" and "salt your way to health"

raw acv is better for you, you should be able to pick a bottle up at your grocery store in the natural foods aisle or at health food store.

It's just thick bec of temp.
Warm it up - in the sun for a few minutes is fine and make it more liquid - pour it over a salad as you would EVOO - or put into a smoothie.
I used to make carob brownies with it - pour it into ice cube trays and freeze.
(Honey, carob, or chocolate powder, lecithin, coco oil, voila)
Cook with it, but - as anything don't heat it too high to wreck it's natural benefits.

for ACV - does it have to be organic/pure or is regular ok?

To be effective for health apple cider vinegar has to be virgin unfiltered, with 'the mother' - cloudy stuff in the bottom of the bottle.

As for coconut oil, I take it thick on a small piece of bread, otherwise I couldn't get it down.
