“When patients read the doctors manual I have very little difficulty with the treatment”
-Timothy Smith, MD
When they do manage to get their temperatures up they feel great!
I insist that every patient read the Doctor’s Manual before I treat them with T3. And for the patients who are on T4 containing medicine I insist that they read the doctors manual before they wean off of it.
It’s only when I read the doctors manual that I saw that this was real and that there was scientific reasoning behind it and it made sense. The patient brought me the manual and asked me to read it and thank goodness she did. If you have patients that you haven’t been able to help with other treatments in any other way and you’d like to know of something you can try that has a good chance of helping than I’d recommend that you read the doctors manual for Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome.
However you must be ahead of the curve. If you’re the kind of doctor that must wait for ten years until everything is spelled out in the medical literature before being willing to try something that makes sense and that may help your patients then this may not be for you. If you are going to trying this treatment you and the patients need to be ready to invest time in learning it and following the treatment protocol carefully which requires some organization and record-keeping. In this day and age with the Internet patients have a great deal of access to a lot of information. They often have the time and interest to do a great deal of research on their symptoms and the possible causes. In my practice, patients often bring me information relating to diagnosis and treatment of their symptoms. I consider what they bring me and have often learned of valuable information that I find very useful in my patients. In this way, patients have been very important and helpful to my practice. They bring what they have found and I show them what I have found and we work together as a team to help them get better. Patients have a lot of time to research their problems and are very motivated to do so.
Doctors and patients shouldn’t even try to do T3 therapy without having first read the doctors manual. When patients read the doctors 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 the doctors manual. Patients really need to buy the doctors manual because it’s a very small and very important investment in their health-care. I think it would be impossible for a doctor to implement this treatment in his practice without insisting that every patient read the Doctor’s Manual first. It makes it so much easier.
I had a patient tell me, “I think I need a T4 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.
