Recovering with T3 is regarded by many patients as the best guide for using the T3 thyroid hormone safely and effectively.
There is a companion book (The CT3M Handbook) but Recovering with T3 should always be read first.
Hypothyroidism is frequently caused by an autoimmune thyroid condition known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which occurs when a person's own immune system gradually destroys the thyroid gland causing it to make less thyroid hormone.
Paul explains within Recovering With T3 that he discovered he was hypothyroid around thirty years ago.
The standard treatment for hypothyroidism at that time and still is to use Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine (known as T4 for short),.
There is often very poor success using this standard T4 thyroid medication and many people remain with symptoms of hypothyroidism.
A poor response to treatment with T4 can be true even though thyroid laboratory tests appear to be 'normal'. In the author's case, after many years of being treated with T4, he still had the majority of the symptoms that had first taken him to see his doctor.
Paul describes how after many years had passed he eventually was given the T3 thyroid hormone and this finally enabled him to make a complete recovery. There were many lessons that he needed to learn about T3 in order to regain his health and these have all been included within the book - they are crucial to using T3 correctly.
This book covers a vast amount of technical and practical information relating to T3 medication and details how Paul applied this information in order to get well. Any reader who wishes to understand more about the T3 thyroid hormone will find this book invaluable.
In particular, Recovering with T3 presents a clear method for using T3 safely, effectively and systematically.
The book has a foreword by Dr. John C. Lowe, who was a thyroid researcher and clinician for many years and one of the world's foremost experts on T3 and its correct use.
Also available on this site is a list of chapters in the book.
Recovering with T3 was first published at the end of 2011. Thousands of thyroid patients have bought the Recovering with T3 book and have used it to regain their health. Some of these patients have kindly provided feedback on the book. The revised edition of Recovering with T3 incorporates much of this feedback and the addition of a much-requested index.
Recovering with T3 is essential reading for thyroid patients seeking background knowledge and very practical guidance on the use of the T3 thyroid hormone during their quest to recover from hypothyroidism.
