Ingredients: 2 tbsp. MCT oil or Brain Octane Oil or more coconut oil 1 cup full fat creamed coconut milk ¼ extra virgin coconut oil (56 g / 2 oz) 2 tbsp. MCT oil or Brain Octane Oil or more coconut oil ¼ cup Xylitol powdered 10-15 drops liquid Stevia extract CHOOSE 1 of the following flavor add-ins: ½ cup Brewed caffeine-free Dandelion chicory coffee- I like Tecciano brand it is available at Sprouts( For Chocolate flavor ice cream) + 2 tbsp raw cocoa powder, unsweetened OR ½ cup freshly pureed strawberries for strawberry ice cream (add instead of the Dandelion- chicory tea.)
Instructions: 1. Place the softened creamed coconut milk, or coconut oil, MCT oil and cocoa powder ( if making chocolate bombs).
2. Add powdered xylitol and stevia into a blender and pulse until smooth.
4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the ice-cream into ice tray.
3. Pour in the prepared coffee or strawberries (room temperature or lukewarm, not hot) and pulse again until smooth. Pour into the ice-cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It may take anywhere between 30-60 minutes depending on your ice-cream maker. Using an ice-cream maker makes the texture smoother & creamy. *Tips when you don’t have an ice-cream maker: Pour the mixture directly into an ice tray or small muffin tin. You should be able to fit ~ 2 tablespoons per fat bomb or make smaller fat bombs. This is the method I use.
5. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm.

More than 12 percent of the United States population suffers from thyroid problems today, and an estimated 20 million will suffer from some sort of thyroid imbalance in their lifetime.
More than 12 percent of the United States population suffers from thyroid problems today, and an estimated 20 million will suffer from some sort of thyroid imbalance in their lifetime.One factor which may contribute to these overwhelming figures is that one-third of the world’s entire population also suffers from an iodine deficiency.
As the cells in the thyroid gland
are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine, it follows that iodine
deficiencies result in many thyroid-based hormonal issues, and vice-versa. It
is by no means the single isolated cause of thyroid malfunction, yet it is
thought to be one of the most dominant. That being said, it should always be
taken into consideration when assessing thyroid health.
Iodine is essential for converting thyroid hormone into it’s
free and useable form. It’s also essential for breast health. However 90%
of thyroid sufferers
have as their main mechanisms of disease an auto immune disease called
Hashimoto’s. Some research indicates that Iodine may increase antibodies and
cause this autoimmune disease to become worse.
How do you know if you should be taking it or
not? At Next Advanced Medicine we always
test. We don’t give Iodine to patients
unless their blood test indicates they are low. We also watch it carefully to
make sure it does not get too high.
Why is functional medicine a better
It makes no sense to treat every
patient with generically mass-produced drugs that may or may not have the
desired effect, when the root cause of disease varies for each person.
Functional medicine for thyroid
health aims at analyzing the unique lifestyle factors that have potentially
contributed to an existing imbalance or the development of worsening
symptoms. Regardless of how it manifests, it is vital to gain an
understanding of the unique functioning of your thyroid!
Other symptoms of thyroid imbalance
Become ‘Functionally Literate’
Thyroid issues are not uncommon, and yet each person experiences symptoms and root causes differently. We believe everyone deserves to be aware of their own root issues in order to receive the personalized treatment their illnesses require to help them go forward in life without a dependency on prescription drugs.
Our hope is to enable all patients to become ‘literate’ in functional medicine, so as to maximize their chances of preventing the onset or reversing the effects of thyroid problems. Check out our upcoming seminars where you can learn first-hand from our doctors.
There are conflicting opinions
regarding the benefits of cruciferous vegetables such as kale, broccoli, and
spinach for your thyroid health.
The conclusion functional experts
come to, however, is that eating what YOU need for YOUR body and YOUR
particular needs is the only way to correctly use nutrition as a means of
This means that cultivating AWARENESS of your body, and using advanced testing
to identify your nutritional needs, is key to you obtaining optimum health.
Studies have shown leafy green and
cruciferous vegetables as the most nourishing source of natural iodine for

Functional medicine is a much more personal approach to healthcare. It ensures that each patient is treated according to their specific needs, rather than treated as a diagnosis.
