What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know about Gluten Sensitivity Could Hurt Your Thyroid

Even though awareness has never been greater, research shows that the overwhelming majority of people with gluten sensitivity are unaware that a simple dietary change could make a big difference in their health. And sometimes we would prefer not to know, because maintaining a diet without gluten can be challenging at first!

wheatSome people are sensitive to the gluten, which is found not only in wheat, but other grains such as barley, rye and spelt, without even being aware of it. This sensitivity can lead to a “wearing away” of […]

What’s so special about a thermometer?

Do you have the proper thermometer to track your body temp?

I recommend liquid metal thermometers because digital thermometers are less accurate when the battery is low, without telling you that they’re inaccurate (because the battery is low!). Also, they can become inaccurate when they are dropped from a height of 4 to 6 inches (What if that happened in shipping?).

The thermometers we recommend are individually tested and marked for accuracy at the factory. You might be able to find this same thermometer in your local pharmacy or large retailer.

I recommend that you check your temperature […]

Can a Detox Help Your Thyroid?

Many chemicals in our environment have the potential to disrupt thyroid function. They include everyday household products, prescription drugs, and chemicals used in agriculture and manufacturing. These chemicals end up in our water, air, food, and eventually, in our blood, fat stores, liver, breast milk, and babies.

These chemicals often break down very slowly. They can persist in the environment for years after they are banned, and in our bodies even long after our exposure to them has ended. They can cause hypo- or hyperthyroidism. They can cause autoimmune problems including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves disease. Some impair T3 […]

  • Cholesterol can drop with normalizing body temperature

Cholesterol Can Drop Dramatically With T3 Therapy

A low body temperature can easily explain high cholesterol levels.  To us, a low body temperature indicates a slowed metabolism.  An abnormally slow metabolism can occur in hypothyroidism due to inadequate production of T4, but more often, it is due to inadequate conversion of T4 to T3 inside the cells of the body.  Since most of this T4 to T3 conversion happens intracellularly, it is invisible to thyroid blood tests.  That’s why people can have low body temperatures even when their thyroid blood tests are normal.  Studies show that people with inadequately treated hypothyroidism are more likely to have […]

What about T3 in people who have had thyroid removed?

Here’s a question I received from a reader:

Hi,
I appreciate your newsletter and am on the WT3 protocol. Would you kindly comment on how people who have had their thyroid removed respond to the WT3 protocol. Are there any differences in treatment????
Thanks,
Mo B.

Yes, people who have had their thyroid glands removed often do very well on T3 therapy. How well people feel on thyroid medicine has everything to do with how well that thyroid medicine is helping them maintain a normal and steady body temperature.  The body temperature depends on how well T3 is stimulating the metabolism inside […]

Act now to save your access to sustained-release T3 and bioidentical hormones (Senate vote in 2 days)

Click here now to write your senators. It’s easy and will only take a minute.  Sustained-release T3 is not difficult to make and sustained-release agents can actually make thyroid medicine safer.  Regular thyroid medicine is “instant-release”.  It’s dumped into your system all at once.  There’s no way that adding a sustained-release agent could get the thyroid medicine into your system any faster or more suddenly than that, but it could make it safer.  Your only access to sustained-release thyroid medicines is by way of compounding pharmacists because drug companies don’t make it.  If the FDA succeeds in this huge […]

Vitamin D important for thyroid as well as bones

We’ve heard from our youth that Vitamin D is good for our bones but it’s also important in fighting autoimmune thyroid disease.  When children don’t get enough vitamin D or calcium they can develop rickets, a softening of the bones.  Milk is often fortified with vitamin D as a preventive measure.  Adults that don’t get enough vitamin D can also experience decreased mineralization of the bones referred to as osteomalacia.  What many people don’t know is that the incidence of autoimmune conditions (when the immune system incorrectly attacks instead of protects the body) is higher in people with vitamin […]

Don’t let the FDA remove your access to sustained release T3

Take action by following the link at the end of this post to prevent the FDA from removing your access to sustained-release T3.  The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) has released draft legislation that would enable the FDA to regulate both compounding pharmacies and the compounded medications themselves. Currently compounding pharmacies are regulated on the state level.  Page 7 of the draft says: “may include the designation of drugs or categories of drugs that present demonstrable difficulties for compounding, such as extended release products….”  As it turns out, extended release products are not difficult to […]

  • Dr. Wilson on Conference

Thyroid crucial for heart health

When people have high cholesterol levels most doctors don’t think of thyroid and low body temperature.  But hypothyroidism can increase the risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) by as much as 25% by increasing LDL cholesterol levels.  Many people with low body temperatures and normal thyroid blood tests also have high cholesterol levels that quickly normalize when their body temperatures are raised to normal.  Hypothyroidism and low body temperatures can also increase the risk of CHD by increasing obesity and diabetes.  Some studies suggest that some patients with acute and chronic cardiovascular problems have impaired T4 to T3 conversion […]
