  • new to excersise/fibromyalgia

    I have not excersised for a very long time, I cannot do a pull-up, I cannot do a squat or even a real push-up. I have watched the fitness videos on progression but I am wondering how many do I do to start with and in what order. I dont know where to start really so any advice would be great. BTW my doc says I have this fibromyagia but I think I am just extremely weak through lack of excersise. Oh I do hula hoop when I have the energty but not for long maybe a few minutes and then I am exhausted.

        All of these things are telling you that you are severely iodine deficient. You need to get yourself on iodine with required supplements and follow the Dr. Brownstein Iodine Protocol.

        See details here:
        http://tinyurl.com/iodine-references

        Iodine is ESSENTIAL for human health. The reason you had goiter in the 1st place was severe iodine deficiency. You could have cured your goiter by taking iodine, that surgery was not necessary. Other diseases that women can expect from severe iodine deficiency include Migraines, Fibrocystic Breasts, PCOS, Painful Periods, Endometriosis, Cysts & related cancers. Men suffer from Prostate problems, related cancers, and erectile dysfunction, low libido, low testosterone, gonad cysts from iodine deficiency.

        Every cell in the human body requires iodine.

          I thought I was not allowed to supplement iodine if I was on levothyroxine for my thyroid condition. I asked about taking kelp at the health store and they said no.

            MOST IMPORTANT read this link:

            Kelp is a no no because it is so contaminated with pollution. You need Lugols iodine or iodoral which is pure, available from Amazon.Com

              I am in the U.K. and are you suggesting I stop my thyroxine? I don't really understand only that I have been told not to take iodine supps because of the fact that I onlly have half a thyroid and need thyroxine to functon. I don't think Armour is available over here. My doctor does measure the T3's also and I am currently taking 125mc levothyroxine. Still get symtoms though. So should I take iodine then and how much?

                I'm suggesting you follow the advice in Stop The Thyroid Madness links that I provided. Carefully read what they have to say.
                I have given you all the research links, and it is up to you to read them and take action as required.

                Every cell in your body requires iodine. So you need to supplement with iodine. Your Levothyroxine does not supply iodine to your body. I have given you a great deal of information already that you are not studying. After you have gone over carefully ALL of the links that I have provided to you, ask your questions. You will find me at the Iodine Thread here:

                    He says I shouldn't take iodine supps. But it sounds really good, would a little hurt do you think?

                      Here is your ultimate authority once a again, Stop The Thyroid Madness on the subject of iodine:
                      http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com...-iodine-bread/
                      Do a SEARCH on IODINE for more.

                      You are going to get yourself EXTREMELY confused by listening to unqualified Sources. PUHLEASE do your research in the STTM link above. This is the very best & most qualified source of information on the Thyroid. You will learn that your doctors can be DEAD WRONG so learn to depend on yourself and StopTheThyroidMadness. Spend a lot of quality time in this website. Your good health depends on it.

                      There is just no substitute for you to learn about your own thyroid and make your own decisions. You can depend on all the links I have provided for you, ESPECIALLY the STTM site.

                        Amour isnt approved for use over here so I am a bit stuck with that. So did you have any advice on starting excersise for me?

                          Yes,
                          The BEST exercise is walking 10,000 steps a day.
                          Work your way up to 10,000 a day. Park your car at the far end of the parking lot, walk up steps instead of elevator, wlk instead of driving. etc.

                          Sorry, but you give up WAY too easily. You must fight like hell for your good health. STTM has a special section for the UK:
                          http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/uk-doctors/
                          You are clearly not spending quality time at STTM.

                            Please listen to your doctor.

                            Grizz means well in his heart I'm sure, but IMO he has become a misguided, paranoid, conspiracy theorist.


                            I face physical impairment challenges as well... (due to a chronic pain disease and other medical problems)
                            As far as exercise... walking is great.
                            You can start with as little as a 10 or 15 min walk and go up from there as YOU feel comfortable.
                            If you try to go up to 20 or 30 minutes and find it is making things worse, move up by doing two smaller walks per day first.
                            You are in control. You can decide to change the increments of time you walk to suit your needs.
                            There is no rule that says you have to jump from 10 min to 15 min... you can do 11 min, 12 min... whatever you need to do.

                            For other exercises watch some videos. If the video says "do 20" or "three sets of 10", just start smaller and within YOUR own comfort level and maybe "do 5" or "three sets of 3" to start. If that is comfortable do one more the next time, and so on.
                            If you find an exercise that you can only do ONE of, just do one. One is more than none, and next week maybe you'll be comfortable doing TWO.
                            If you do an exercise and it causes a LOT of pain, fatigue, etc... do just a little less next time.

                            There is no shame in taking the slow lane.
                            As a matter of fact there are parables (the tortoise and the hare for instance) that tell us that slow and steady wins the race.
                            Many perfectly healthy people defeat themselves every year by starting out with too much too fast.
                            If you have any sort of chronic medical problem then the likelihood of burnout is even higher.
                            Hugs to you.
                            “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
                            ~Friedrich Nietzsche
                            And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                              Thank you. I would like to be able to do one whole pull up. I would also like to do squats amd push ups. I will just do what I can each day and hopefully get stronger.
