Medicine is an inexact science but Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is remarkably “cut and dry.” Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is very recognizable and it responds predictably and reproducibly well to proper treatment.
If you’ve read through The Syndrome, Its Treatment, and The Results sections of our site you may be wondering whether you or someone you know has Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome, or how you can get good medical treatment for it.
Since Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is undiagnosable with blood tests how can you know if you have it? You can’t, but the best way to see if you may have Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is to see if it sounds like you. Low body temperatures produce very recognizable symptoms and circumstances. You may thoroughly recognize yourself in the patient book, Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome – - A Reversible Thyroid Problem which describes the syndrome in much more detail than this web site or the patient success stories (this book is described in more detail in the store, you can also read it free online here).
Like depression, migraines, panic attacks, anxiety, irregular periods, PMS, impotence, menopause, and many (if not most) other conditions, Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is a clinical diagnosis. A clinical diagnosis is one that is based on signs a doctor can see in an examination and symptoms that the patients report, not on tests.
If it sounds like Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome may be your problem and there is no other great explanation for your classic low thyroid symptoms, you might consider trying proper T3 therapy. The most convincing evidence you will have that you were suffering from Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome will be when your temperature improves and your symptoms disappear with proper treatment.
Good medicine taken properly
The preferred medicine for treating Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is made by pharmacists, not a drug company. When companies make medicines it’s called manufacturing. When pharmacists make them it’s called compounding. Drug companies make most of their money on patented medicines. The most easily defended patents are structural patents, which actually have to do with the molecular structure of the medicine. T3 is a naturally occurring substance and has been on the market for over 50 years. No company can get a structural patent on it. Even if a company made a sustained release T3, another company could make a different kind of sustained release T3.
Compounding is a lot more fun for a lot of pharmacists than simply counting manuafactured pills from the drug company (which is how pharmacy has turned out for most pharmacists). Compounding can be more profitable, too, since drug companies are continually squeezing down the profit margins for pharmacists. More and more pharmacists are taking an interest in compounding. Compounding is not new but it is making a comeback. However, pharmacists don’t often get a lot of training in compounding in pharmacy school, and very few pharmacists have acquired much experience in it. And, it’s probably fair to say that there are a lot more pharmacists starting to compound than there are that are very good at it. As you can imagine, good compounding requires specialized techniques, equipment, and experience.
We’ve heard for years that some patients don’t do very well on medicine made by some pharmacists and then do much better when they take medicine made by the pharmacists at Medaus Pharmacy in AL (800-526-9183) (Medaus has been a nationally prominent compounding pharmacy for many years and the pharmacists there have been compounding T3 for over a decade).
You will need a doctor to prescribe the T3 mixed with a sustained release agent. You might try a doctor on our list of physicians who say they’re willing to treat Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome, or you can work with your own doctor.
There are some wonderfully knowledgeable, capable, and caring physicians out there. But these days, we recommend that patients be informed and in charge of their own health care. You may have more time to read. You have more of a vested interest. There probably is no doctor or pharmacist that cares about you and your loved ones as much as you do.
Obviously many patients are getting excellent results. It seems that the best results are coming from the doctors who are following the principles in the Doctor’s Manual most closely. However, some doctors tell patients that they are treating Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome according to the protocol in the Doctor’s Manual, when they’re not. Sometimes their treatment of patients is actually contrary to the principles presented in the Manual. The doctors may not have actually read the Manual, they may have forgotten, they may be guessing, they may be disagreeing, or even perhaps deceiving. It’s great that doctors have their own ideas about the way patients should be treated, but it’s discouraging when they say Dr. Wilson said so. Dr. Wilson wrote the Doctor’s Manual as much for patients as he did for doctors so that patients would be able to see what they were getting.
Based on what some doctors have said, even doctors who treat Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome are more likely to treat you for it if you have already read the Doctor’s Manual and are wanting to try the treatment. Some doctors have said that if a patient comes in who has read the Manual thoroughly and really wants to try the T3 according to the protocol, they are more inclined to treat them. However, when patients come in without knowing much about it, the doctor might not be as inclined.
When doctors consider treatment approaches, they consider the pro’s and con’s for the patient and themselves. If the patients aren’t knowledgeable, the treatment may not work as well, and the patients may have more problems. Also, there are other approaches that may not be as powerful or promising but may not be as time-consuming to explain to the patient. So a doctor may be inclined to try a few simpler things first, before resorting to spending time educating the patient. Of course, these “few other things” can cost time and money and may not work very well. Reading the Manual will increase your chances of being treated for Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome first, rather than last.
There is too much to the treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome for it to be conveyed adequately in a doctor’s visit. Even if the doctor could cover it all, studies show that patients remember very little of what doctors tell them. Inevitably, bits and pieces will be left out. The treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is like a jigsaw puzzle, it’s simple but you don’t want to leave pieces out. Just one piece of information that’s left out could end up costing you a month of medicine, time, travel, money, and disappointment. Knowing what you’re doing from the start can increase your chances for the quickest possible response at the lowest possible price, while providing you more peace of mind. You may have a simple question, but if you don’t know, you don’t know. And how easy will it be to get the doctor on the phone? At night? On the weekend? On a holiday? There’s a lot of comfort in knowing more about what you’re doing.
The Doctor’sManual thoroughly explains the treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome (the manual is described in more detail in the store). Most doctors who are treating Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome heard about it from their patients, and then the doctors read the Doctor’s Manual. If your doctor reads the Doctor’s Manual s/he will probably know more about the successful treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome overnight, than s/he would by treating it for two years without reading the Manual.
Dr. Wilson has also recorded a series of 8 tutorial videos that add up to a total of about 30 minutes that can quickly give you an understanding of a simplified version of the protocol. Also, here is a companion sheet to those videos called Simplified T3 Protocol for WTS. It is a one-page instruction sheet along with a symptom checklist. Your doctor can order the T3 for you from a trusted pharmacy like Medaus.
