Think you don’t have a thyroid problem or are adequately treated on your thyroid meds? Think again.

thyroidglandIn your quest for emotional and spiritual healing and optimal health, a little gland in your neck called the Thyroid may be trying to speak to you.

Thyroid disease, especially hypothyroidism and/or Hashimotos,  is not only rampant is today’s toxic world, its all too frequently undiagnosed or poorly treated.  And sometimes, no matter what modalities of treatment you try, you are still forced to face that your thyroid problem may need to be discovered and treated by allopathic medicine.

But the problem is that doctors routinely use the wrong test, the TSH and total T4,  and the wrong medications: Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothyroxine, etc.  The TSH lab test can be “normal” for years before it rises high enough to reveal your hypothyroid state, all the while you battle with easy weight gain, fatigue, dry skin or hair, feeling cold, depression, and a host of other lingering hypothyroid symptoms in your “normal” state.

Even if your hypothyroid state is discovered, the clueless doctor puts you a T4-only, thyroxine medication, aka Synthroid, Levoxyl, or levothyroxine. T4 is a thyroid storage hormone meant to convert to the active, health-giving T3.  But the body is not meant to live on conversion alone!!  As a result, nearly all thyroid patients on these medications will continue to live with lingering symptoms.

What’s the solution? To find out about the Road Less Traveled by a growing body of thyroid patients around the world–a road which has led to a far better treatment, far better labwork, and discovery of a host of other conditions that need to be treated. It’s a patient revolution called Stop the Thyroid Madness.

The pioneering and powerful patient-to-patient website and book with more detail explains it all, and perhaps, if you have an undiscovered or poorly treated thyroid condition, you just might find your life completely changed from the information.

    I haven’t read Janie’s book, but I have seen her web site. It is very informative! I have a close friend who went through partial thyroid removal this Monday. I have already sent her Janie’s URL. For my friend’s sake, I wish I had known about this earlier.
