I had discovered Miracle of Life about 7 years ago through a friend. I wasn't having issues but still wanted to add the supplement to my diet. Years, life events, moves, etc, happened in the interim and Miracle of Life kind of dropped out of my budget. Recently I came to realize I was lacking minerals and the only place I trusted for that was Wayne Garland's Miracle of Life. What's more I had been taking kelp for my thyroid. I read the things that are in Miracle of Life and the Kelp is there! I have not been having the issues with the thyroid since getting back with Miracle of Life.
