Raw thyroid and thyroid - s

Ritaritarita profile image

Hi ya'll I have been taking raw thyroid for about a month and raw adrenal, I think it has started to help. Also I got my Thyroid-S in the mail two days ago and I have started with 60 mg I guess. I take two pill early and then later in the day still take one raw thyroid and one raw adrenal. I know it has only been two day, (and a month for the raw ones) but man do I feel like.....awake....different...happy.....well!! I have a multi nodule goitre on my thyroid have symptoms of sorta hypo and hyper at times, blood within normal range but decided after going to the Endo private, spend almost a grand, and he just sat there didn't help me at all. Only said it all needs to be done again in six months, but now I have to go NHS. Good luck eh! So I decided to treat myself, I have been down with what I thought was thyroid for years, 6 or more, ask my GP to test my thyroid only to find out my GP could not have tested me and he lied saying I was normal. Sad. So far so good, I feel really good. Maybe it is the raw thyroid and adrenal kicking in, but can thyroid-s act in the body that fast, well no matter if it is placebo effect I don't care. I have taken my own health in hand. I have bought everything online. Thank you Thailand!!! Hope this might help anyone, although I am not saying do what I am but this is the first time in ages I feel fine. I will keep you posted as I know this is a hot subject here. X x x

Been on Thyroid S myself since end 2012 and it works for me. Don't waste time on the NHS. Not sure what the other stuff is that you're taking. Be sure to get a blood test (privately) just so you know where you are and have something to go on.

It took me about 4 months (felt worse at times) before i settled on a dose and felt reasonable

Can you tell me what dose you're using? I just started on Thyroid-s (60mg)six days ago -- no noticeable results -- and today started taking 120mg. . (How long brfore I notice results?)

I found it took 3 months to notice a difference

I take one grain. X

Thank you. That was very helpful.

I felt the difference with NDT within 2 days too, and after being really poorly for 3 months.

Thanks everyone for the reassuring comments, day three, took my dose this morning and am feeling great. Man I have suffered for years and years, I have never felt this, I,guess the word is awake and functioning. Yes next thing would be blood tests again, but the thing is I cannot afford another round of private test. I know there are cheaper ways but not sure how or what they are. I would appreciate any suggestion. This web site and literally saved my life, and sanity. THANK YOU!! X x x x

I’d have a look at this it’s what I used for dosing:


Thyroid S had an almost immediate effect on me. I started to feel noticeably better after just 1/4 of a grain. I am a super fast reacter to medications in my experience and according to my genetics. Once on it I have never looked back it probably took about a month or two for the full effects to work and feel like a different person to the fat miserable saddo I was on Levothyroxine .

If you follow the advice given you should be able to dose correctly without needing any blood tests.

I am so pleased you found it helpful and I hope it allows you to find the right dose for you and you get your life back. NDT’s been a life saver for me.

Be very careful with using too much too soon. I can cause you to become overtreated, due to the T3 in it. I ended in the hospital from too much, which caused a crash in my potassium and calcium levels, leading to abnormal heart rhythms. This is powerful stuff. Do not underestimate this fact. It should be taken in two divided doses early morning and early afternoon. Increases should be given at least 2-3 weeks before you consider another increase. And PLEASE do not self treat without monitoring your levels strictly, this is not levothyroxine, it contains active T3 and too much T3 is harmful to the body.

As long as you titrate up gradually until the symptoms alleviate you should not be at risk of overdose, ie 1/4 grain increases and decreases. I had to split the dose initially, but now it makes no difference whatsoever if I take it once a day or divide it and take it twice I used this guide: tpauk.com/main/article/trea...

It was how it was done by gps for decades when NDT was the only treatment and prior to blood testing being used. I only did private blood testing after 5 years of taking it and dosing by how I felt. I think it is pretty easy to self treat with it if you go cautiously.

Sorry you had such a bad experience with it. I was terrified at first but I need not have been I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to feel so much better again on NDT.
