Here I am with Author Janie Bowthorpe of “Stop the Thyroid Madness” interview – she joins me for this lively podcast discussion on thyroid dysfunction – how to recognize it, run correct labs, look for contributing factors such as adrenal and gluten problems, and much more.

Have YOU been told your thyroid is “fine”? Relying on the TSH test as the primary method of diagnosing and dosing thyroid concerns is incorrect. Natural Health practitioners have been saying this for many years, and patients are finally learning how to talk to their doctors about this.
You deserve better therapy than T-4 synthetic thyroid alone. The body makes other thyroid hormones, as well as calcitonin, and these are better taken as Natural Dessicated Thyroid such as NP Thyroid, ERFA, Naturethroid or compounded T4/T3. Armour is a natural dessicated product but the company has not confirmed it is gluten-free.
And remember, always check the adrenals too!! Saliva testing (not blood) is mandatory for anyone suspecting a thyroid problem, to rule out the adrenals as the cause of that concern.
