The Advanced Thyroid Series

Paul is a thyroid patient who became ill with hypothyroidism in his late 20s. At first, Paul, was put on the most common thyroid treatment - Levothyroxine (also known as Synthroid or T4). However, the majority of his symptoms remained, much like they do for many on T4-therapy. Over time he became even more ill, with both low cortisol and low thyroid symptoms. His scientific background enabled him to fight through the morass of misinformation and recover his health. He has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on thyroid and adrenal dysfunction. He was eventually able to recover using T3-only replacement therapy. He has written 3 books: The Thyroid Patients Manual, Recovering with T3 and The CT3M Handbook.

In this episode:

  • Paul's own story of recovering from Hashimotos.
  • The ripple effect of having hypothyroidism to not just your own health but also to the people around you.
