W Bloomfield, Michigan, USA   In addition to regular consumption of seaweed and iodized salt one may want to consider 2 daily drops of Lugol's Iodine (5% iodine + 10% potassium iodide in H20) or a daily Iodoral tablet form of Lugol's solution, especially if one's Armour thyroid prescription is insufficient. 

Coconut oil [a saturated fat, from the coconut: milk or copra (white meat)] taken 3-4 tablespoons (preferably as organic, raw or virgin) with each meal will do a miracle, if one is faithful to do it daily, preferably for a lifetime, because it will also do wonders for one's energy and hormones, especially the under active thyroid [hypo-thyroidism.  Beware - turnips, cabbage, mustard, cassava root, pine nuts, millet, peanuts and soybeans (called goitrogens) can contribute to goiter by blocking iodine absorption by the thyroid].  Remember to eat sea vegetables (seaweed) which contain iodine from the sea.   Calbom, Cherie & John   www.gococonuts.com

Jensen, Dr Bernard  Dr Jensen's Guide to Body Chemistry & Nutrition  Introduction "People say, 'I need a miracle,' but the Chinese say, 'You are a miracle.'  The Chinese were treating goiters nutritionally 5000 years ago, bringing edible seaweed, dried fish, and burnt (ocean) sponges."

Chapter 9 A Miracle Ministry "Oral Roberts reached out and touched it ("goiter on the side of her neck...as big as a half-gallon fruit jar") with the tip of his fingers and it went 'swoosh' and totally disappeared.  That really made an impression on me.  That was one of the greatest miracles I had ever seen."
