I have a special interest is thyroid disease, especially the hypothyroid, and thyroid/ fibromyalgia connection. For several years, I have been researching on computer and other resources found that people who have hypothyroid, autoimmune thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, pain response well to a combination of dietary change, exercise, acupuncture, nutritional supplements, and thyroid hormone T3 and T3/T4 therapy (prescribed by physicians who are open to this approach)… In looking at the issues behind thyroid problems.
I try to identify three stages of hypothyroidism
☻ When the gland can’t make the hormone.
☻ When the gland makes the hormone, but the gland and peripheral organs don’t convert the hormone-impaired T4 to T3 conversion ability.
☻ When the gland can produce the hormone and body can convert the hormone, but the immune system can’t handle it, and hormone can’t get to the receptor site.
Just like there is a situation known as insulin resistance, there is also a similar situation is thyroid hormone resistance… I focus on helping the gland make good hormone, helping the conversion problems, and helping reduce or eliminator receptor site resistance. Thyroid problem can be complex. I do not believe that one food supplement, or detoxification process, or synthroid is easy solution to thyroid problem. Sometimes that is difficult to do on your own. It is my hope holistic physician working together to help these patients and others like them
