So, what did she do? She learned about a new natural medication called Armour and low and behold a real miracle happened. Information is powerful and the Internet proved invaluable as she learned by reading a simple message board about a natural thyroid medication called Armour. Describing the history of the medication, its composition and where it came from the reader learns a lot about Armour and its origin.
The author shares her experiences with Synthroid, how she managed to restore her health and the many blogs and message boards that she encountered during her journey. Helping the reader understand the definition of TSH testing, why it is not always valid and what adrenal fatigue really means in regarding this condition, the book is a virtual goldmine of information and encouragement for anyone that has gone through what the author has.
Understanding Ferritin and Iodine really helped me and I wish that I had this information when I was younger before being place on medication at age ten.
Pages 42 to 43 define the meaning of desiccated thyroid followed by more information that will help you understand it better. Chapter three deals with what thyroid patients have learned and Chapter four will teach the reader more about TSH.
Adrenal Glands. Do not ignore those precious Adrenal Glands you need them to be on a friendly basis with you. So, if you feel anxious, nervous, problems dealing with stress, impatient, irritable, feel light-headed, shaky and have a racing heartbeat to name a few of the symptoms you might have adrenal fatigue and you need to get it taken care of. One telltale sign is salt and sweet cravings. So, what should you do? First, she sites information on why some doctors have not pointed this out to patients.
Next, the author sites other factors that contribute to this problem and throughout Chapter Five she sites more information that the reader needs to learn for themselves to become informed. Page 78 is invaluable as it lists all of the symptoms of adrenal dysfunction followed by page 79which lists the tests most doctors prescribe.
Added to this list is a checklist to help you assess whether you have this problem. Step Two pages other indicators that might help you which follow. The ten big mistakes that people make and finally putting it all together and more shared stories of people who have this disorder.
The author includes valuable information in the many addendums attached at the end of the book including resources to help the reader learn more about Armour and other treatments.
The addendum that I found most valuable deals with how to understand your test results. This is an excellent resource for everyone that has ever had this problem and for doctors to read and learn from to understand that their way might not always be the right one.
Thank you to author Janie A. Bowthorpe for sharing her knowledge, story and that of others.
I give this book: Fran Lewis: Aug 19, Mirela marked it as to-read. Here is an e-mail I received from my doctor about this book: It was written not by a physician or specialist but by a woman who suffered from hypothyroidism and took it upon herself to learn from other patients suffering from this disorder.
She was angry and critical of the bulk of physicians who treat the disorder because she felt most physicians are wrong and that we were taught incorrectly. The message of Here is an e-mail I received from my doctor about this book: The message of this author is important and I feel a compulsion to share this message with you. Treat the patient, not the laboratory test numbers. Most physicians are doing the wrong blood tests and don't know how to interpret them.
Most hypothyroid patients are not being given enough Thyroid to turn off their signs and symptoms. The average hypothyroid patient will require 3 to 5 grains of dessicated thyroid, and most are being under-dosed.
Patients should never be treated with pure T4 synthetic hormone. All patients should be given natural dessicated thyroid that contains T4, T3, T2, T1 and calcitonin. Pure T4 Thyroid is devoid of the active form of Thyroid which is T3.
T4 is our bodies' storage form and patients must be given also the active T3 if they are to recover. Critical to patients suffering hypothyroidism is that half of them are also suffering from adrenal fatigue. You will never recover unless you treat adrenal fatigue first. The goals of treating hypothyroidism are: Raise body temperature to Turn off all the signs and symptoms of low thyroid.
Raise the T3 level to upper third of normal range. Treat patients who have autoimmune thyroiditis, one of the most common causes of hypothyroidism, with Thyroid.
Iron as measured by a ferritin level should be tested and supplemented if low. The trace mineral Selenium is essential in the body's ability to convert T4 to T3. Be sure the patient has some source of supplemental Selenium. In general, I am happy to say, we at the Center have practiced most of these principles.
What we may want to do is try to raise afternoon body temperature to Many of you are on Thyroid for hypothyroidism. If we have not achieved the established goals of therapy, you may want to review your current status and see if we can improve your condition.
I think this book, Stop the Thyroid Madness: Bowthorpe, is a worthwhile read. I encourage you to get a copy. It is written to be understood by the average non-medical person. The bottom line is that Thyroxine doesn't even remotely have the same effect and make you feel the same, as Armour Thyroid.
Standard blood tests for thyroid levels are also woefully inaccurate. Although mine have always tested very low since I became ill, this isn't the case for many. But in nearly ALL patients on T4 meds, the T4 does NOT convert into an adequate amount of T3, leaving you with symptoms that neither you OR your uninformed doctor realize are related to inadequate treatment.
But there's even more to the problem: Around , the TSH lab test was developed. Based on a sampling of several volunteers, a so-called "normal" range was established But volunteers with a history of family hypothyroid were NOT excluded, leaving us with a range that leans towards being hypothyroid! There is a large majority of patients who have a "normal" TSH, even in the "one" area of the range, and have a myriad of hypothyroid symptoms. So what's the solution? Patients and their wise doctors are returning to a medication that was successfully used from the late 's onward: Additionally, patients who are working with certain wise doctors are not dosing by the TSH.
Instead, they raise their desiccated thyroid according to three criteria and not in any particular order: On a T4-only medication, we have noted that the majority of patients have a less-than-optimal free T3, a mid-afternoon temp lower than Adrenal support is used to give back to your body what your adrenals are not, which in turn allows the thyroid hormones to get to your cells.
I can't recommend her website or book more highly and I thank her for taking the time to put this book together to help others. Why you need it, Why you can't live without it if you have any type of thyroid problems.
Iodine is an essential element. Although its main function is in the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland, other organs in the body have a need for iodine in order to function normally. When thyroid levels have been shown to be low, this may be an indication that an iodine loading test may be a good idea.
Vitamin D testing is also an essential part of any thyroid treatment program, as the new version of this book explains. If you'd like to read a bit more about some of the causes of thyroid problems and how these can be worked on in order to reduce or stop your thyroid problems then the book by Dr Sherry Rogers titled Detoxify or Die is also essential reading.
Dr Sherry Rogers explains that there are environmental, nutritional and metabolic causes of thyroid problems. Food allergies, chemical and mould toxicities, goitrogens from soy and other foods, and high levels of fluoride especially in drugs such as Prozac , heavy metal and chemical contamination from things such as cadmium, mercury, PCBs, dioxins and phthalates plasticisers.
Cadmium can lower T3 but not raise TSH. It can lower thyroid function in a way that leaves the TSH test completely normal. Low levels of the nutrients needed to make thyroid hormone such as selenium, zinc and iodine. Poor cell membrane function can cause thyroid problems as can high levels of trans fats.
This can be tested for using a thyroid antibodies test. Other causes include virally caused damage to mitochondria, pituitary gland problems and chronic infections.
Aug 26, Lessons rated it did not like it. I'm very sorry I wasted good money on this book. There are much better books available on dessicated thyroid meds and I would hopefully suggest you keep looking. It did, however, lead me to her website which sells T-shirts and caps and things that no one could possibly need or want.
There is info on this site which may prove to be hel I'm very sorry I wasted good money on this book. There is info on this site which may prove to be helpful, but it isn't her research.
I know this first hand. I feel she tends to steal and plagiarize and then turns on a dime, to call it her own work. She doesn't give credit where credit is due; instead, crediting herself for work that is not hers.
I've also noticed that with any inferior review she receives on the book, she'll turn around and comment sourly along with her passe of other supporters. This in itself, is infantile behavior and it shows yet another disturbing quality. Read through the comments yourself, you'll get the picture..
There's a world of good information out there written by reputable authors who are respected for their own work. I prefer to support authentic authors. View 2 comments. Oct 27, Verna rated it it was amazing. This book was a revelation for me. I finally discovered a whole group of people just like me. It is the bible for a certain segment of the population who do not fit into the standard medical definition of hypothyroidism and the usual conventional treatment prescibed by doctors.
After reading this book, I felt fully validated for the first time in all of my years of feeling sick with thyroid disease and not knowing what to do about it. There is a current battle raging about the use of t4 only tre This book was a revelation for me.
There is a current battle raging about the use of t4 only treatments versus combination, natural thyroid for hypothyroidism. This book tells it like it is. Jun 26, Adrienne rated it liked it. I highly recommend this book if you have any concerns about any thyroid issues. I give the content 5 stars. It has great, thorough information. That said, I give the whole book 3 stars because I thought the book itself was poorly organized. Apparently the book is not written for "beginners" but rather those who are on the madness train.
