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

Hypothyroidism can simply be described as having too little thyroid hormone.

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.

The author of 'Recovering With T3 My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone' discovered he was hypothyroid over twenty years ago.

The standard treatment for hypothyroidism at the present time is for a doctor to prescribe a medication called Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine (known as T4 for short), which is usually taken once a day for the rest of the patient's life. T4 is one of the two major thyroid hormones that the thyroid gland produces. The second major thyroid hormone is known as triiodothyronine (T3 for short).

There is growing awareness that some people do not appear to recover their former health using this standard T4 thyroid medication and may remain with many symptoms of hypothyroidism including: fatigue or feeling tired all the time, weakness, feeling cold, inability to lose weight, brain fog, digestive system problems and a range of other symptoms typical of an under-active thyroid gland.

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 Thyroid and how to keep it healthy

Dr. Peatfield's book is probably one of the most popular and widely read thyroid books for patients on the market and has been since it was first released.
This is no accident. The book is an ideal starting point for any patient trying to understand why they feel how they do and what thyroid disease is and what the approaches to treat it are. It is brilliantly written from a point of view of explaining to patients, friends and family what can go wrong with the thyroid and adrenal system and how this can affect different people in different ways.

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.

The Thyroid Solution: A Revolutionary Mind-Body Program for Regaining Your Emotional and Physical Health

Many thyroid patients have found Dr. Arem's book of great value in its honest and often vivid exploration of some of the mental and emotional effects of thyroid disease. The book describes Dr. Arem's practical approach to maintaining thyroid health through a mixture of medication, diet, exercise and the reduction of stress.

A very good book indeed and one definitely worth reading.

The CT3M Handbook

This book describes how the author recovered from severe adrenal hormone issues by developing an innovative and simple approach called the Circadian T3 Method (CT3M), which supports the adrenal glands 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 there is good adrenal health, 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 partial adrenal insufficiency 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 improve adrenal function. 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, natural way to correct adrenal function.
