The connection between headaches and thyroid function

Tags: , , , , |

It’s really amazing when you think about how the thyroid is connected to almost every system in the body. A new study supported the connection that I’ve talked about frequently, finding that possible risk factors for developing thyroid dysfunction may be headaches and migraines. Over the course of this twenty year study, researchers found that people who suffer from headache disorders have a 41% increased risk of developing hypothyroidism in the future. That’s significantly higher than the group people without headaches, who only had a 21% increased risk of developing hypothyroidism.

The majority of the people who developed

What about T3 in people who have had thyroid removed?

Here’s a question I received from a reader:

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????
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 the

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 power

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 D

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 compound. 

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 which

  • Thyroid affects DNA transcription

Thyroid hormones and DNA

Thyroid hormones, particularly the active thyroid hormone T3, affect nearly every physiologic process in the body.  Think of that. Thyroid hormones affect virtually every process in the body.  Have you ever wondered how that might be?  You are no doubt familiar with the term DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid).  It is the molecule in our cells that contains the genetic code that directs how we are built and how we function.  Thyroid hormones affect the transcription and utilization of the directions encoded in the DNA.  In every cell of the body, thyroid hormones bind to receptors on the nucleus and thereby affect

Treating Wilson’s Syndrome Very Helpful in Lyme disease

Treating WTS (as one of my symptoms) some years ago made a huge improvement in my long term battle with Lyme.  My Lyme doctor recently discovering the prevalence of gluten intolerance in those with Lyme has allowed me (and almost all of her patients) to regain full health.

Thanks to Dr. Wilson for his discovery of Wilson’s Syndrome!  My Lyme doctor tells me virtually all of her Lyme patients have (had) WTS. She was unaware of WTS until I began seeing her a year ago.  She told me treating WTS with T3 has been a huge help to every single Lyme

Dear Dr. Wilson, Many thanks for your research and persistence in determining an underlying cause of low body temperature. I have been running subnormal temps for the past twenty-one years and none of my physicians seemed to be terribly concerned. During these years, I had long suspected that my fatigue (never felt rested), slow but steady weight gain(despite various diets), and feeling of being “chilled to the bone” especially in the evening had something to do with my temperature running between 95.4 to 96.7 degrees on a regular basis. Unless I used an electric blanket or insisted that my husband
