Does anyone have experience with Thyrogold? Or treating hypothyroidism without a doctor's care?
Some background to my question: I suspect that I'm hypothyroid because of the diagnosis by a doctor 4 years ago and the continued persistence of the the classical symptoms. The doctor had prescribed Amour Thyroid, but I felt no benefits from it and couldn't use it regularly enough because of some sort of production problem that kept it out of pharmacies. Now, I'd like to experiment again, but given my lackluster health insurance and preference for tweaking my health on my own, I'd much prefer an OTC thyroid med. What I like about Thyrogold is that it's an OTC glandular made from New Zealand pasture-fed cows. What gives me pause is that it seems to have been developed and promoted by a chiropractor, who's website is a bit bizarre.... For example, "Dr. Lowe used a calculated judo approach to what he believes was finally an unscrupulous attempt to silence him. By using this long planned approach, he avoided much of the apparently work-distracting and resource-draining intentions of his opponents."
