EXPOSED: Your Body’s “Butterfly Effect”
Could This Be the Culprit Making You Feel Tired, Moody, or ‘Not Quite Right’?
Have you ever heard of the “butterfly effect”?
In advanced math theory, the butterfly effect describes how a tiny influence on one part of a system can have a tremendous impact on another part.
The butterfly effect suggests that a tiny butterfly fluttering its wings in, let’s say, a jungle somewhere in South America . . .
Could actually initiate a storm — even a hurricane — off the coast of Florida, for example.
So what does the butterfly effect have to do with you — or your health — for that matter?
Well, you’ll hear about a tiny cluster of body tissue with a tremendous impact on your overall health.
In fact, you’ll see how this small gland can exert a butterfly-type effect on nearly every part of your body.
You’ll see how it could very well be the hidden culprit behind your flagging energy, your moodiness, perhaps even that ‘blah’ feeling that makes it difficult for you to just get out of bed some mornings.
And best of all, you’ll discover how easily you can wake up feeling peppy, more emotionally balanced, and more energetic once again, ready to take on all of life’s challenges . . .
So make sure you watch this video in its entirety, because it contains potentially life-changing information you won’t find anyplace else.
Now the truth is, while mathematicians haven’t extended the concept of the butterfly effect to your body . . .
You carry your very own ‘butterfly’ around with you all the time.
our thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, weighing only about 1 ½ ounces.
The ‘wings’ of your thyroid butterfly are called its lobes, and they wrap around your windpipe.
And while it may be tiny when it comes to size, many health experts consider your thyroid to be a master gland when it comes to controlling numerous body functions.
From the beating of your heart . . . to the function of your sex organs . . . Your thyroid exerts its powerful hormonal influence on many different and critical body tasks throughout your body.
Just like the butterfly effect when it comes to weather, your neck’s tiny butterfly gland can impact nearly every aspect of your health, particularly your energy level, mood, and metabolic functions.
Unfortunately, peak thyroid performance is a rare butterfly . . .
Because according to renowned holistic medical physician Dr. David Brownstein . . .
A majority of American adults suffer from sub-optimal thyroid function.
What’s worse, many of those suffering from concerns related to their little pink butterfly don’t even know it.
Of course, they don’t have the knowledge you’ll gain from today’s presentation.
That’s why it’s so urgent for you to know right now.
Because millions of Americans — perhaps even you or a loved one — feel tired, grumpy, or just ‘not quite right’ . . .
All due to less-than-ideal functioning of your tiny thyroid gland.
And while thyroid concerns are often considered a “woman’s issue”, they actually affect both sexes, and particularly those middle-aged and older.
But first things first . . .
After mentioning Dr. Brownstein, you may be wondering who he is — and why you should read on. . .
Well, David Brownstein, M.D. is a board-certified family physician, and Medical Director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
Dr. Brownstein is the author of 11 health books to date [insert pic of books fanned out], and a sought-after guest lecturer.
He’s also medical editor of the popular Newsmax newsletter Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health.
So he plunged full-speed ahead into alternative medicine, and began to use the best of both conventional and holistic therapies in his medical practice.
And just to let you in on a little insider secret, his very first thyroid patient was actually his own father, Ellis.
Researching and solving his father’s thyroid concern put Dr. Brownstein on a 25-year quest to learn everything he could about the importance of the thyroid to your overall health.
With everything he’s learned along the way, and after seeing thousands of patients, Dr. Brownstein has become one of
America’s foremost authorities on thyroid health.
He’s even written books about the thyroid, and about the importance of iodine to the thyroid and overall health.
So now that you know more about Dr. Brownstein, let’s get back to today’s presentation . . .
First of all, you may wonder by now whether you should be concerned about your own thyroid gland.
The National Institutes of Health describes it well:
“You’re tired, weak, exhausted, weary, worn out.
You have a lack of energy and as a result you feel distressed.
You’re not functioning as well as you should.
It’s called fatigue . . .”
Whatever words you use to describe it — dog-tired, pooped out, run down, wiped out, sluggish — fatigue has many causes, and many effects.
For millions of Americans, that sluggish feeling is a direct result of a thyroid gland not functioning at an optimal level.
Perhaps you wake up in the morning feeling OK, but fatigue creeps up on you by lunchtime . . .
Perhaps you need a nap just to make it through the day . . .
Perhaps even mild exercise or activity leaves you feeling wiped out . . .
Feeling so pooped out makes it difficult for you to perform well at work or recreation.
And when you add in mood changes or grouchiness, you may find it hard to maintain normal family and friend relationships, too.
Of course, when fatigue becomes persistent, it’s a good idea for you to see your doctor for a check-up.
However, keep watching . . .
Because you’ll hear shortly why you can’t trust the results of a commonly used thyroid lab test — a test many doctors use that often overlooks sub-optimal thyroid function issues.
So even if you hear from a doctor that your thyroid is ‘fine’, Dr. Brownstein has some advice you’ll want to stick around and hear — just to protect yourself . . .
I think you can already see how your tiny thyroid can be a BIG pain in your butt-erfly.
And here’s another zinger . . .
You’ve probably heard since your younger days that you shouldn’t worry about iodine, because you get enough of it in iodized salt.
You’ll see Dr. Brownstein himself talk about how an inadequate level of iodine is much more common than conventional medicine believes.
And if you’ve believed that using iodized salt will give you enough iodine, you simply must keep listening, as Dr. Brownstein will bust that common myth wide open for you in just a minute or two.
You’ll get details about claiming your report momentarily.
In this Special Report, you’ll get more in-depth information about your thyroid and its importance to your overall health.

But first, let’s return to the 70’s . . .
You remember — disco, plaid bellbottom pants, and Bonanza.
Something else happened during that decade, something impacting millions of folks and their thyroid glands to this day.
In the 1970’s, the thyroid stimulating hormone test (or TSH test) was developed.
This test was considered an advancement in medicine. Unfortunately, according to Dr. Brownstein, many doctors began to use it as the sole measure of thyroid function.
And as Dr. Brownstein points out, no one test tells the whole story.
He has seen many people with “normal” results on the TSH test who suffer with thyroid concerns.
So what should you do? Well, Dr. Brownstein has 2 pieces of advice for you:
- Make sure your doctor runs a full thyroid panel, not just an isolated TSH test.
- If you see your TSH increasing over time, don’t wait for thyroid concerns to develop. If your doctor doesn’t want to work with you, find one that understands how to properly interpret thyroid tests. A holistic healthcare practitioner will usually be more knowledgeable about this.
With so many issues related to your small pink butterfly, I’m glad we could get Dr. Brownstein to offer you some of his expertise when it comes to your thyroid health.
So without further ado, allow me to introduce you to Dr. Brownstein, who will personally share with you:
- Some simple tips for a happier thyroid . . .
- How and why the majority of his patients have been deficient in iodine . . .
- The myth of iodized salt . . .
- The common thyroid-damaging toxin you should avoid, one that’s been invading both your diet and your lifestyle . . .
- And much more . . .
OK, here’s Dr. Brownstein . . .
Thank you, Dr. Brownstein, for sharing those tips with us. I know I grew up thinking that iodized salt was ‘the answer’ to potential thyroid concerns, so it’s good to get the real story.
And, while most people don’t realize how essential iodine is to their overall health and wellness, I think you’ve come away with more knowledge about iodine and thyroid function already.
Plus, there’s more to come . . .
In fact, Dr. Brownstein wanted me to pass along 7 more tips and strategies to help you out right now:
- Minimize your exposure to environmental toxins, such as pesticides, fertilizers, and even household cleaning products and antibacterials. These can act as hormone disruptors, which may interfere with thyroid function.
- Avoid heavy metals like mercury, found in tuna, amalgam dental fillings, certain vaccines, and even some over-the-counter products like contact lens fluid. Mercury can also adversely affect your thyroid.
- Limit your stress level as much as possible. Chronic stress interferes significantly with thyroid function. Interestingly, in an interview several years ago on Good Morning America, talk show diva and producer Oprah Winfrey blamed her own thyroid concerns on her excessive stress level.
- Stop eating soy, except in fermented forms such as miso or tempeh. Despite marketing efforts by “Big Soy” (certain multinational food corporations), soy is NOT a health food. Unfermented soy is high in chemicals called isoflavones, which may contribute to abnormal function of your thyroid gland and other health concerns.
- Make sleep a high priority. A thyroid imbalance may cause or contribute to sleep difficulties. While there is no “magic number” when it comes to the amount of sleep you need, most adults need 7-9 hours per night according to the National Sleep Foundation.
- Support your thyroid with optimal levels of thyroid-loving nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, riboflavin, niacin, and minerals such as zinc, selenium, and manganese.
- Plus, any effective approach to correcting sub-optimal thyroid function must also provide support for the adrenal glands. Your adrenals, which sit on top of both kidneys, may become fatigued when overstimulation of these important glands (such as from physical or emotional stress) leaves them unable to supply your body with an adequate amount of their hormones.
So I think by now you can see that a good solution to help your tiny butterfly gland function effectively must include some simple lifestyle measures — PLUS iodine, adrenal support, and specific vitamins, minerals, and other key nutrients shown to promote a healthy thyroid.
