Is There Anatural Replacement for the Thyroid Hormone?
I need to take it all my life- isn't there any natural remedy somewhere?
Mcharlemagne - or visit a naturalist. Some MD doctor are also naturalist. They are the best to help you with this issue. Otherwise here comes another disease down the road.
Floxintoxin - It really depends why your thyroid is out of whack. If you experience symptoms, it's the thyroid. If you don't have any symptoms and they just go off of a test, it may not be problem. I found a site that will help you, www.stopthethyroidmadness.com. It has information on everything thyroid, including treatments. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid after taking an antibiotic (Cipro), BUT I never had symptoms and it turns out the Cipro caused a high false reading. Many antibiotics can cause this. Hope this helps.
Kimkathleen - I'm not sure what you mean exactly by a natural replacement? There is a natual form of thyroid hormone that comes from pigs. I know - sounds gross, however, I take it because all the synthetic prescription forms cause bad side effects like stomach pain, weight gain, irritablility, water retention, insomnia. In other words even though I'm still hypo-thyroid, per the blood tests, the synthetic preparations make me feel horrible. The name of the pig thyroid medication is Amour Thyroid. I must admit, I still have problems with regulating my blood levels, but all of the other above symptoms I mentioned went away. Doctors do not always like to prescribe it because they say since it is natural it is not consistent in it's strength in the tablet. I say, it works better than the synthetics and I recommend it.
Nancyadams - Yes. The Stop the Thyroid Madness website has excellent information on natural thyroid treatment. You should also order the book by the same name, which will give you even more information. I think it's the best thyroid book ever written!!
Contactreed - I would work with a good NMD for thyroid stuff. Here is a reply I did for a post/blog on this site for Gardisil vaccine (which I will NOT be giving to my teen daughter): The Gardisil may have something to do with your daughters symptoms, I would look for an NMD that would be willing to evaluate your daughter further, not just look at "normal ranges" on lab reports and say "all is well." A good NMD will take labs into consideration, of course, but really seek to find the source of the symptoms. Check your state Board of Naturopathic MDs to see what NMDs are currently licensed and practicing near you. NMDs can have the same "bedside manner" issues as allopathic MDs (arrogance, too busy to listen, etc.) so try to "interview" some before making a final selection on who to bring your daughter to. It may take a 2-4 weeks or so to find someone you feel comfortable with, but its worth it in the end. When calling NMD offices, ask if they do FREE consultations (usually 15-20 minutes). If they do, take advantage and get an appt asap. Be sure to have all questions and any medical files with you ready to go so you maximize the free appt. If they do not offer free consults, try to research the doc to find out as much as you can and find out their fee structure. Sometimes the fee structure is great, but the info on the doc is so sparse that, without the free consult, I would vote no and screen them out. I recently found a good doc with a good fee structure and can hopefully get some of the money back via Out of Netwk insurance filing. NMDs are known for wanting to find the source of symptoms and seeking to identify any relationships to symptoms rather than bandaiding the symptoms independantly... Best thoughts for you
