Re: What to take for Hypothyroid


Adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism often go hand in hand, I'm dealing with that myself. You need to support your adrenals, do you know whether you have high cortisol, low cortisol or a combination of both? Ya gotta know so you can support your adrenals properly. Me-- I have high cortisol, so I'm in the early stages of adrenal fatigue and I take Seriphos to lower it. It's been a year and I'm slowly getting better. A 24hr saliva cortisol test would be a good idea if you haven't done it yet.
is one place where you can order the test without a doctor.
is a really good site to get a good handle on hypothyroidism.

Are you taking any thyroid replacement supplements like glandulars? Although they tend to be very weak, they're helpful until you can get on something like armour, if you need it.

Are you tracking your temps? Is your basal temp below 97.8? If it is then you're hypo. Kelp is really not a good long term solution to thyroid health, since a lot of kelp supplements out there are contaminated with arsenic. Taking iodoral (google for best price) or Lugols (swanson's vitamins has 2 oz 2% Lugols for about $10 and 1 drop is about 2mg iodine). Taking Tyrosine and selenium along with Iodine will help the thyroid convert the Iodine to the thyroid hormone.

But first, you need to get the recommended labs that Janie has listed on her site. You need to know what your ferritin values are, you need to know what your Free T3 and Free T4 values are. You need to know if you have hashimoto's. That is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid.

Then there is the issue of becoming iodinated -- You're experiencing hypo symptoms because you're Iodine deficient. Once you start taking iodine, your body is going to start detoxing halides and that's a whole other kettle of fish, but one that's got to be dealt with. Check out,
for info on bromide detox symptoms and how to deal with them, the iodine boards on curezone and Dr. David Brownstein's book: Iodine: Why you need it; Why you can't live without it.

Finally, there's a NaturalThryoidHormone users group run by Janie on yahoo and there's an iodine board on yahoo too.
