Memory loss and mood disorders, such as anxiety or depression.
Cyst formations in the ovaries.
Complications in the prostate.
Fluctuations in heart rate can occur.
Feeling colder than usual.
Fibrocystic breast disease.
Gastric issues, such as colitis.
Thyroid, breast, prostate, and other reproductive system-related cancers.

Investing in an excellent, efficient water filter as most water systems have added fluoride, so check with your local water authority as this information is publically available.
Boosting your liver and kidney function as well as taking measures to get rid of bromide, fluoride, and chlorine in the body. Milk Thistle is a gentle yet powerful detoxifying herb that strengthens both the liver and the immune system.
