Sick of Tired is a work in progress.

After years of struggling with “mystery illness” and endless hours of research, I was able to find a solution to my unhappy body. I combined a lifetime of fixing just about anything I’ve been able to get my hands on, with a drive to enjoy life again. Not only did this allow me to understand the inner workings of life, it gave me a completely different view of the world we are a part of.

Sick of Tired is essentially my autobiography. Part of my story will be the information and methods I used to get myself into the mindset and understanding required to make some of the choices I did.

I am in the process of organizing several different websites of information into a story that has a path. In the meantime, I may link around to several other websites that may or may not be my own information.

Why read another potentially confusing perspective?

Can we trust natural healing?

I wish I understood methylation before I started detoxing

We’re roughly 70% water by weight

My experience with iodine on my other site WhyIodine.com

Resources to get started

Dirty Genes
Methylation is an important and complex topic. The main goal of this site is to explain this topic in short videos. Dr. Ben Lynch’s book called Dirty Genes is a great read for anyone that has the time.

Salt Your Way to Health
Understanding the importance of natural unrefined salt is important. Dr. Brownstein has a great book on the topic, called Salt Your Way to Health(2nd edition).

Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It

Dr. B explains the important of iodine at many levels.

If iodine and natural healing is new to someone, Lynne Farrow’s book The iodine Crisis may be an easier read with more testimonials.

While reading up on iodine, or having hesitation to get started, try some kelp. I’ll write more about kelp soon, and how fearing it’s toxicity is silly for a few reasons.

Our diet depends on our methylation status, which depends on our nutrient/toxicity status. This is why its so difficult to ‘find the right diet’. Our diet is ever-evolving with our environment, lifestyle, diet and toxic load. But understanding food in general is a big help. This book helped me see what real food is and what eating ‘clean’ allows my body to do. I wrote more about this eating clean situation on my iodine site http://whyiodine.com/what-is-detox/http://whyiodine.com/how-to-detoxhttp://whyiodine.com/support-organs/

From Dr. Ben Lynch
Update June 2019:
It is HIGHLY recommended to start with:

Optimal Electrolyte,

ProBiota HistaminX

and Optimal Start (a multivitamin without any folate or B12)

These open up your biochemical pathways. This way neurotransmitters don’t get ‘stuck’ in your head giving you horrific side effects.
