Re: [RC] flax seed question/thyroid? - heidi larson

not the right Heidi, but I've read something that Dr.
Kellon wrote a long time ago, something about Magnesium
deficiency in Cushings type horses/ponies and how it could
help.  Maybe she will read this and confirm and expound.  

Can't say a thing about flax seed.......

Hi all, I'm hoping Susan G. or Heidi or any other person
that might have an answer to this question.
I used to think flax seed was good in most cases, but
something I read this weeked disturbed me.
Had to do with the fact that flax had the potential of
thyroid inhibition.
Is this possibly true?  For humans and or horses?  
I'm holding off on flax until I'm satisfied it is still
okay to give.   I would appreciate some reassurance as I
know it is widely feed to horses as well as human.
Also, are there any suggestions to diet modification if
any for a horse that may be "pre-cushings?"
