If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

HI all
When I saw this title of this post, I thought someone was having fun making a joke.
Possibly mixing the names Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO... the enzyme that helps put thyroid hormone together, to which those with autoimmune thyroid disease misappropriately develop an auto-antibody), with Horseradish Peroxidase.

In any case, i got a giggle from it!

If you don't know what the poster is talking about, its not you... this is rather arcane technical information and not really germane to thyroid disease.

the translation into common terms, it that scientists have discovered an enzyme in Horse radish root (the same ground root you mix into ketchup to make cocktail sauce for shrimp), that makes tests like the ELiSA (which measures antibodies to certain diseases/pathogens) more sensitive.

Make sense?

That is allot of medical jargon and it needs to be broken down to regular language so that we understand what you are trying to say. Did not have any medical training to understand what it says.

I know that Lemongrass oil applied over the thyroid can help with the assimilation of meds to the thyroid. How does Horseradish help?

The enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP), found in horseradish, is used extensively in molecular biology applications primarily for its ability to amplify a weak signal and increase detectability of a target molecule. HRP is often used in conjugates (molecules that have been joined genetically or chemically) to determine the presence of a molecular target. For example, an antibody conjugated to HRP may be used to detect a small amount of a specific protein in a western blot. Here, the antibody provides the specificity to locate the protein of interest and the HRP enzyme, in the presence of a substrate, produces a detectable signal. Horseradish peroxidase is also commonly used in techniques such as ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. www.creative-enzymes.com/product/Nat
