Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 64-year-old female, active (aerobic and resistant to regular activities), eat plant-based food, and I am in good health except for high cholesterol levels (my whole life), benign thyroid nodules, and recently developed cataracts. Currently I am not taking any medications. I used to take several different statins, all of which I could not tolerate.

My questions are:

  1. Can I take Nattokinase (2000 FU) and Turmeric Curcumin (500 mg)?
  2. Is soy not good for thyroid nodules?
  3. Some sources suggest that yogurt, eggs, and cheese are among the best foods for thyroid health, but what about my high cholesterol and cardiovascular concerns about animal and dairy consumption?

Most recent cholesterol: 11737.45 mg/dL (good HDL, bad LDL).


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I have gone through your symptoms, and you have a high lipid profile. And according to your symptoms, you have a thyroid nodule. So along with your medicine, it is better to start Guatteria Gaumari Mother Tincture daily with ten drops with a cup of water three times.

Nattokinase is an enzyme, and it is for heart and circulatory diseases. It decreases the ability of blood to clot. Curcumin is powerful anti-inflammatory and has antioxidant properties. So you can take both remedies for your problem. Eggs have iodine and selenium, and other nutrients that help regulate thyroid hormones. Yogurt is also a good source of iodine.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
