What is brewers yeast, is it good for people that has hypothyroidism?

Brewer's Yeast: Brewer's yeast comes from a 1-celled fungus (saccharomyces cerevisiae) used in making beer -- not bread. It's been used for years as a nutritional supplement, because it's rich in b-complex vitamins, chromium, and selenium. However, it contains no vitamin b12.

How can I go about treating so many issues at once: lyme, candida, interstitial cystitis, high blood uric acid and urine protein, hypothyroidism, etc.

How can I go about treating so many issues at once: lyme, candida, interstitial cystitis, high blood uric acid and urine protein, hypothyroidism, etc.

Holistic approach: Unraveling multiple issues is complex & a bit like a game of pick up sticks- you need to be careful about the order. Lyme & candida may be the cause of ic, but it may be necessary to detox heavy metals to treat those. Antibiotics for lyme can aggravate candida. It's best to start with basic support- balance hormones, detox, correct nutrient deficiencies. I advise working with a skilled holistic doc. ...Read more

Probably not: Manna would last only one day; by the next morning, "it became infested with maggots and stank." (exodus 16:20). .. Maybe moses changed his mind about keeping it around.
