When Done Properly"
Doctors and patients
shouldn't even try to do T

Dr. Timothy J. Smith, MD
I have seen many patients
treated by doctors for Wilson's Temperature Syndrome with poor results.
Often, it appears that these patients have been treated with T
in a way that's doesn't seem fully logical. The approach taken doesn't
seem to reflect an understanding of known thyroid physiology and/or
the principles outlined in the Doctor's Manual. In my experience,
the results people experience clearly depend on the way the T

When patients read the
Doctor's Manual I have very little difficulty with the treatment.
I've had the most trouble in patients who haven't taken the time
to read it. I insist that every patient read the Doctor's Manual
before I treat them with T
3. And for the patients who are on T
containing medicine, I insist that they read the Doctor's Manual
before they wean off of it. I think it would be impossible for a
doctor to implement this treatment very well or easily in his practice
without insisting that every patient read the Doctor's Manual first.
It makes it so much easier. I once had a patient tell me, "I think
I need a T
4 test dose." He showed me in the Manual what that was,
and he was right. One patient told me, "Will you read case study
No. 5? I think that's what's going on with me." These pointers from
patients can be extremely helpful. They have time to study the Doctor's
Manual carefully and see how it applies to them.

I absolutely do see a
strong correlation between how well the patients follow the instructions
in therapy and how well they do. I learned a long time ago that
you cannot help people who do not want to help themselves. I'm so
busy but as long as the patients will follow my instructions I will
do everything in my power to get them well.
Dr. Charles Resseger, DO
I find it extremely important
for the patient to be educated as much as possible and this often
increases their motivation to comply with the somewhat complicated
instructions. I have also found some differences between compounding
pharmacies and how they prepare the T
3. One pharmacist expressed
surprise when I explained to him the time release factor was supposed
to be for 12 hours. He had been using a different grade of methycellulose
and it was only 8 hours. Another pharmacist insisted on putting
dye in the T
3 and others insist on putting the T
3 in color capsules
to differentiate doses. This is not good for my allergic patients
and may explain why some doctors are not getting the desired results
with their patients on Wilson's Temperature Syndrome treatment.
