check with your doctor first!

I am hypothyroid and haven't found anything in a health food store that will replace synthroid. I have a holistic doctor and have gotten off all meds except synthroid. I would ask your pharmacist, nutritionist and your doctor.

I agree, your thyroid is nothing to play around with or test out new unproved things.

Ask your doctor? OR find a new one.

I see messages on the community feed dated 2010. I'm hoping someone can respond in this 2013.
I purchased Natural Sources Brand Raw Thyroid and I'm also on .75 Synthroid. I need to know if I should stop the synthroid while I'm trying out the Raw Thyroid....

Yes, Yes... I know I should consult my physician but she only looks at one number the past 10 years... my TSH.
I have been on every diet in existence. I have wonderful willpower. 99%of the tie I eat gluten free and Paleo. I no longer fear Fat.... I fear Bread and Wheat. Stop the Wheat... Acid Reflux disappeared! Joints felt better. More energy. Paleo Rocks! Also, I a on Weight Watchers which works nicely for Gluten Free and/or Paleo. TIRED OF WEIGHING 80 pound more than my perfect weight.

I can't seem to lose more than 5 pounds and then.... As I recall... I have put on 10 more pounds in the past year.... no 18. It seems I have Z-E-R-O metabolism. I'm 52 and TIRED and I know it's not because I overeat. It doesn't seem to matter WHAT I do from exercise to drinking water to high protein/lot carb to well... you get the picture... I can't seem to lose weight. It doesn't matter what I eat or drink or don't drink or eat!!!

I blame my thyroid which is why I purchased Raw Thyroid. But, I don't want to screw up my adrenal gland or destroy my thyroid by taking this pill AND synthoid at the same time.


This pill is 390mg and consists of: Thyroid Tissue, Adrenal Tissue, Pituitary Tissue, Thymus Tissue, Spleen Tissue, White Korean Ginseng -- Appears to be Bovine.
This was a last ditch effort...

WILL THIS HELP ME? PLEASE!!! Someone respond to this post!!!!
