THE MORNING SHOW
STOP the Thyroid Madness
Well, here’s the skinny. Globally, informed hypothyroid patients have come to a unified conclusion that for 50+ years, they have been subjected to a thyroid treatment which didn’t work, leaving their lives compromised with lingering thyroid symptoms, besides adrenal stress and low levels of important vitamins and minerals.
Could you, a friend or a loved one be a victim of this poor thyroid treatment? You betcha.
•The Non-Diagnosis Club: This huge global group consists of those with genuine or unrecognized hypothyroid symptoms, yet no accurate diagnosis. Why? Because of well-meaning but clueless medical professionals who not only fail to note the entire cluster of your hypothyroid symptoms, but rigidly rely on the TSH lab test, which is a blatant failure. You are then proclaimed “normal”.
•The T4-Only Club: This huge global club consists of those diagnosed with a thyroid problem, but treated with Synthroid, Levoxyl, Oroxine, Levothyroxine, Eltroxin, et al, T4-only thyroxine pills. But we found that the body is not meant to live on a storage hormone alone, leaving many patients with their own brand or intensity of lingering hypothyroid symptoms.
