THE MORNING SHOW
Dr. Mark Starr
Hypothyroidism and Alzheimers
Dr. Starr is a medical doctor and homeopathic physician, Board Certified by the American Board of Pain Medicine. He is an international speaker and the acclaimed author of Hypothyroidism Type 2 – The Epidemic.
We are seeing a big upswing in chronic diseases today, in large part, because we have a silent epidemic of low thyroid. A vast number of cases of fatigue, joint and muscle pain, headaches, depression, infections, metabolic syndrome and more have low thyroid and iodine deficiency at their root. Hormone imbalances, chiefly low levels of usable thyroid, are responsible for many of our aches and pains.
Having dealt with his own hypothyroid issues and having to dig for answers, Dr. Starr makes an excellent advocate for those seeking competent medical treatment for chronic diseases, thyroid hormone, and balancing of bio-identical hormones.
Dr. Starr’s mastery of pain and non-invasive healing techniques led him to develop a dedicated following among those with sports injuries.
Dr. Starr believes that medicine should not be based primarily on chemistry. Every organ, every cell, every toxin vibrates at its own frequency. The body is an energetic being. Recognizing that, we can get to the root of many problems and restore health.
-Dr. Starr has recently released his third book, SOLVED, The Riddle of Alzheimer’s.
-Recap of Broda Barnes’ thyroid research. Relationship of thyroid, heart disease, weight loss, diabetes.
-Health care costs more than 4 times military spending: 18% of GNP.
-Hypothyroidism causes accelerated atherosclerosis and decreased immunity which starts with inflammation.
-Thyroid blood tests don’t work. Pituitary has its own deiodinases which are more effective than those in the rest of the body.
-Dr. Starr tells us he hasn’t had any Alzheimer’s patients for over 15 years. Broda Barnes didn’t have any for 20 years. Bioidentical hormones are effective at preventing Alzheimer’s.
-Why is his book blocked from getting media exposure?
-What determines if someone needs thyroid? Basal temperature should be > 97.8.
-Thyroid is 90% of energy production in the body.
-Starr’s homeopathic license enables him to offer treatments restricted by state medical board.
-If basal temperature is <97.8, 8 or 9 chance out of 10 it’s hypothyroid.
-Reversing thyroid symptoms by detoxing and clearing out endocrine disruptors.
-Why so much thyroid disease? Same patients are going to the hospitals now that were going to sanitariums earlier. TB, arthritis, infections – thyroid related.
-Iodine and thyroid. Halides – fluoride, chlorine, bromine – attach to thyroid hormone in place of iodine and make fake thyroids. Iodine crucial. Use iodine to reduce scars. Good bug killer. 5% Lugol’s iodine – now prescription strength.
-Does Dr. Starr ever prescribe T3 only to patients?
-More than half of his new patients allergic to their own hormones. Mold and mycotoxins – causes masking and spreading. Depletes immune system. Dr. Rea’s Environmental Health Center – uses homeopathy to test for mold. Can get rid of mold but still be allergic to own thyroid.
