Low Thyroid Function
Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, low energy, fatigue, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, cold hands and feet?
You may be one of the 40% of Americans who suffer from undiagnosed hypothyroid function. Respected pioneer Thyroid researcher Dr. Broda Barnes once said that 64 of the most common ailments, diseases and medical conditions are the direct result of undiagnosed low thyroid function.
The present medical establishment insists on administering only three blood tests: TSH, T3 and T4. They also continue to believe that the correct solution may be found in T4 medicines only, ignoring the need for T3 support. Dr.Barnes strongly advised that physicians run: T3, T4, TSH, anti-thyroid antibody and FTI tests. He also suggested the following basal temperature test be performed by the patient at home. Place a thermometer under the arm first thing in the morning and test the body temperature within the first ten minutes of awaking.
The normal range is between 97.8-98.2. Any reading below this range should be interpreted as low thyroid. Also, the following natural medicnes are important: Vit A – 10,000 units, Vit B complex, Floravital 1 tbsp for iron, Selenomethionine 200 mcg, and Zinc Gluconate 50 mg.
