When I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I started reading and searching the internet for information and this thing that had such control over my body. One of the things I found was that fluoride can negatively affect someone with hypothyroidism. I thought I was one of these people but the past 3 weeks have now convinced me.
We usually fill water jugs with water from a local spring dam but when we couldn’t drive our van, we had to give up on this for a while. This meant drinking tap water because I was not willing to spend money on spring water when we are already counting our pennies. So for approximately 3 weeks I’ve been drinking tap water; I drink anywhere from 60 to 80 ounces of water each day. For the past 5 days, I have been more tired and sleeping more than usual. It is frustrating since my sleep was starting to get a little regular and now I am sleeping too much again. Yesterday we did not get to church because I was sleeping - slept 18 hours. I would get awake, look at the clock, think I should get up and then be back asleep before I knew it.
Hubby is going to fill the water jugs before going to work so I won’t be drinking more of the tap water but I do not know how long it will take to get this fluoride out of my system. Hopefully not too long!
Til next time!
