Take your Calcium! (Calcium-D-Glucarate that is)

Wait, do we really need to take more calcium?  Didn’t we learn anything from Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life

Luckily, Calcium-D-Glucarate is different than regular calcium.

What is Calcium-D-Glucarate good for?

“Calcium D-Glucarate is a relatively common nutrient found in many fruits and vegetables. Many believe that this nutrient aids the body in the elimination of many harmful substances and helps to lower abnormally high levels of steroid hormones including estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.† Both of these effects may help to protect against the development of certain tumors.

One tablet (500 mg) of Calcium D-Glucarate is equivalent to the phytonutrient activity found in 82 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. This nutrient is currently the subject of numerous clinical studies and is proving to have great potential for addressing various health concerns.”

The information on Stop The Thyroid Madness is excellent for saliva testing and what we share is generally very consistent with this information.

This is the page about saliva testing on STTM: https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/saliva-testing/


Please take careful note of the labs patients have felt are not doing the trick below for various reasons for our needs as thyroid / adrenal fatigue patients . It’s always up to you, this is just based on patient experience, not medical professionals.

Patients in the UK say that Medichecks isn’t perfect for their needs, but have said they usually get enough info to make it worthwhile, but it’s up to you.

As of 5/2020 patient are reporting that Genova is coming back with many high to VERY high results on MOST tests for MOST persons.  People are saying this doesn’t make sense compared to their history and symptoms.  Up to you to decide if this works and make sense for your situation, this is simply a report of what people have told us in their opinion about their results.

This page is good to study before testing:

Test on as normal of a day as possible (no fights or added stress)
