    Dr. Axe,
    Thank you so much for the e-mai. May the Lord Bless you and keep you under His Mighty wings!!

    My name is Grace, I have a problem around my chin area skin discoloration. I am taking thyroid medication for Hypothyroid. Our doctors cannot help me with this probelm. I have already spend thousands of dollars to buy the facial creams. ” Like Obagi” is very expensive. I am a good believer and trusting in God with all my heart and mind to receive a miracle. I cannot eat anything sweet then it get worse.. Please help me if you can. God will Bless you.

    Have a confusion regarding spinach. Years ago, I heard eating raw spinach leached the calcium from your bones, that it is not helpful for thyroid conditions and it blocks iron (I think). My mother use to set a pot of boiling water on the stove and add the raw spinach. Then take it out after it wilted (wouldn’t this kill of the nutrients). Help, what is the true data so I can think with it.
