‘I will eat my Hat’ if you have a thyroid problem…July 1996

I made an appointment to revisit my diabetic specialist, he didn’t really believe in alternative therapies so when I mentioned I believed I had a thyroid problem he laughed and said I needed to come to terms with my diabetes.

As I was a private patient I insisted on some blood tests to see if the iridologist was correct,  my specialist agreed to do them but said he would eat his hat if I had a thyroid problem !!!

That evening the specialist called me at my home to say he was eating his hat as he spoke to me … I had a severe under active thyroid ‘myxoedema’ and should start Thyroxine therapy that evening and to come to the hospital to collect my prescription!!

I started on a high dose 150 micrograms straight away …

IRIDOLOGY…how it helped me.. June 1996

I was recommended to go to an iridologist ..for those who don’t know….

Iridology  is an ancient diagnostic technique through analysis of the iris of the eye.It is painless, non -invasive,and astonishingly accurate method of health analysis. It is believed to reveal the condition of each and every organ in the body….extract from a book by Adam Jackson Iridologist.

At the time I was willing to try anything alternative , the hypos(low blood sugar) I had on a regular basis were getting me down. One of the things I learnt was that the iridologist believed I had a thyroid disorder and if I corrected it, my diabetes would settle ..he wasn’t convinced I was Type 1 !!

With this knowledge I went to pay another visit to my  diabetic specialist…
