“If you don’t study the Manual you are being treated in ignorance” – Belinda
… There are a lot of doctor’s out there with their own agenda. But that is in all areas, not just Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome. Just be careful. Know you are in control. Be educated about your body and the medical info surrounding treatment offered. As you know, it is up to you whether or not you accept a doctor or his treatment.
… you need to read through the doctor’s manual first. You will learn soooooooo much you will be amazed. The back of the manual is the nitty-gritty of treatments (resist skipping to the back). You need to STUDY the whole manual. Also the patient’s book! The patient’s book helps you understand the syndrome more fully than not having it, and helps you solidify your symptoms, philosophy, and stand on Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. The manual is in-depth and absolutely necessary. Once reading these you will have many questions of your own to ask.
As for the doctor, you definitely want to know his philosophy on Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. Does he follow exactly the protocol laid out by Dr. Wilson? Does he use the T3 recommended (you will learn what kind from the book)? I don’t believe anyone can be confident of their treatment or progress if they do not read the doctor’s manual and patient’s book. If you don’t study the manual you are being treated in ignorance – what good does that do you. Those days are looooong gone. Believe me though, you will have many questions; ask them.
I recently interviewed a doc over the phone and decided, right away, not to see him. He did not follow the protocol and was disappointed in the results (no wonder). He also did not really even believe there was such a thing as Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. You can find out a lot over the phone and not have to hand over your hard earned money for a disappointing appointment. And don’t be intimidated. My doc is much taller than me and has an arrogant air about him. Seems like he doesn’t have time for questions let alone being in the room with you. Of course I saw this as a challenge. I politely melted the shell away and he is the greatest person under there. I commented that he must have ‘caught’ something in medical school. He said they had given him a lobotomy. Teehee.
He had never heard of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome before and is thrilled. He has written me a letter and called on Sunday night to discuss it further. He even wrote my primary care physician to inform him of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome! So don’t be afraid to approach a physician that does not treat Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. The manual is all they need to treat you, IF THEY STUDY IT. So you have to study it to be aware of errors and/or offer ‘suggestions’. Isn’t it exciting to see there is treatment out there to help us!!!
Thanks to Dr. Wilson…
