No Synthroids

Hi Everyone,

I had my Thyroid removed in 2011. It took me 4 years to fully recover. I was taking Levothyroxine in various doses and feeling terrible. My hands were swollen and burned through the night. My joints ached and it was difficult moving and just functioning. I changed to Whole Thyroid and a range of supplements. I have an exercise regime that includes breathing and 400 push-ups a week as well as swimming.I was 70 2 weeks ago. There is light through the tunnel if you believe.

Yes I have changed to NDT. I believe it is the only option. Doctors still test for TSH. There is no Thyroid to test for. They should be testing for T3.

We are creating a process that will hopefully take it out of their hands.

More later today.

So the only answer is to take it in to your own hands. Get tested for T3. Then get a balanced dosage of NDT. Also B12, magnesium, and Zinc. There are truckloads of other supplements you can take. Also, diet change and exercise are important. The meditate on being healthy. I can walk you through the whole thing if you are interested.
