Recovering with T3: My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone

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.

Paul describes in Recovering with T3 how after many years had passed he was eventually given the T3 thyroid hormone and this finally enabled him to get well.

There were a huge number of lessons to learn along the way when using T3. These have all been folded into the book and this is what makes it such a useful guide to those patients that need to use T3 themselves.

Recovering with T3 provides a clear, practical and essential guide to the use of the T3 thyroid hormone.

The Updated Edition 2018 is a significant revision of the book, bringing it up to date with new research and experience since the last revision.  All of Paul Robinson's books now form a valuable set of tools to help in the diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism.Those that have the original Recovering with T3 book need not buy the Updated Edition 2018 as the basic protocol is still the same. This is the final edition of the book.

The CT3M Handbook

The CT3M Handbook is a companion book to Recovering with T3

It is always advisable to read Recovering with T3 before reading The CT3M Handbook. Recovering with T3 contains the overall protocol for using T3. CT3M is a part of the protocol used to deal with low cortisol issues. 

This book describes how the author recovered from severe low cortisol issues by developing an innovative and simple approach called the Circadian T3 Method (CT3M), which supports the body as nature intended.

Thyroid patients often have symptoms associated with low cortisol. These can include: severe fatigue, low blood sugar, aches/pains, dizziness, poor response to thyroid hormones, anxiety, fluctuating body temperature, digestive upsets, allergies, nausea, low blood pressure - to name but a few.

Thyroid hormones will not work correctly if the adrenal glands do not produce an adequate level of cortisol. Consequently, unless any low cortisol issues are resolved, symptoms of hypothyroidism may continue to be present, even if thyroid hormone levels have been corrected. Symptoms of low cortisol appear to be at epidemic levels among thyroid patients. The author explains why hypocortisolism can often be present when a thyroid patient is taking thyroid medication.

The Circadian T3 Method (CT3M) is an approach to using T3, or natural desiccated thyroid medications, that mimics the natural rhythm of our thyroid hormones and helps to correct cortisol levels. CT3M has been used by thousands of thyroid patients since the author first introduced it in his first book 'Recovering with T3'. CT3M is providing thyroid patients and their doctors with a simple way to make the body work as it used to.

The Updated Edition 2018 of The CT3M Handbook is a signficant revision of the book, although the original protocol for using it remains the same. It brings the book up to date with recent research and experience since it was first released. All of Paul Robinson's books now form a valuable set of tools to help in the diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism. Those that have the original The CT3M Handbook need not buy the Updated Edition 2018 as the basic protocol is still the same. This is the final edition of the book.

The Thyroid Patient's Manual

The Thyroid Patient's Manual is a practical, easy-to-read book, which provides an excellent resource for people who are trying to understand hypothyroidism.

It is aimed at patients who suspect they have low thyroid hormone levels, those who have just been diagnosed and are beginning treatment and those who are on thyroid treatment already, but are still feeling ill.

This book deals with all the main thyroid hormone treatment options, including T4 (Levothyroxine), NDT (natural desiccated thyroid), T3 (Liothyronine) and all combinations.

An easy-to-grasp series of steps is presented that includes information on thyroid and adrenal hormones, diagnosis of hypothyroidism and finding the right treatment.

All the common problems that can get in the way are discussed, along with their solutions. It is consistent with recent research studies on thyroid diagnosis and treatment.

The Thyroid Patient's Manual gives you the tools needed to gain some control of your health, and be able to work productively with your doctor, so that you can recover your health as fast as possible.

Note: This book does not replace either of the previous two books (Recovering with T3 and The CT3M Handbook), which are vital to read for those trying to use the T3 thyroid hormone safely and successfully.

Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic

Mark Starr's book is nothing less than SUPERB. Dr. Starr begins by assuming that his readers know very little about thyroid disease and slowly and systematically builds their knowledge as they read.
By the time you have completed the book you realise that the medical and pharmaceutical world have made some big mistakes from the days when desiccated natural thyroid was the only available treatment. Dr. Starr thoroughly explains hypothyroidism and how it can affect the body.

The Metabolic Treatment of Fibromyalgia

Dr. Lowe's book is the first book that I ever read that made me realise that:
I was not alone.
Other people also had problems like mine.
Other people also need T3 before they can become well again.
There were scientific and comprehensible reasons why I might need T3.

Dr. Lowe's book also covers a great many aspects of endocrinology that are not covered in other books that I personally found incredibly informative and helpful to me on my journey.

Stop The Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior Thyroid Treatment

Janie Bowthorpe's book is informative, funny and easy to read. It clearly explains the numerous reasons why natural desiccated thyroid hormone replacement is likely to be superior over the standard synthetic T4 that most thyroid patients are given.

Solved: The Riddle of Illness

Solved: The Riddle of Illness is now in its fourth edition and has sold over 125,000 copies worldwide.

Your Guide to Metabolic Health

I found Dr. Honeyman-Lowe and Dr. Lowe's collaborative book to be of great use because it focuses on many topics that no other paperback thyroid book appeared to cover.
The topics that I found highly valuable included: a wholesome diet for thyroid patients, the appropriate use of coffee and caffeine, how exercise promotes health and stimulates metabolism and those chemical contaminants and toxins that should be avoided.

Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?

The book focuses on Hashimoto's thyroiditis and takes a completely different view of the disease to that of many other physicians. Throughout the book Dr. Kharrazian asks the question: why does someone's immune system turn against their own thyroid gland and other tissues? Not only does the book provide compelling answers to this question but Dr. Karrazian also has a method that he uses successfully in clinical practice to calm a patient's immune system and correct thyroid function before the patient's thyroid gland is destroyed.
