Thyroid disease symptoms have gone largely undetected because of outdated and unreliable laboratory tests used by the medical profession.

Add to that, it is my belief that your family doctor is woefully uneducated about thyroid symptoms. This is recipe for potential disaster.

Insufficient Thyroid Hormone

It is estimated that four out of every ten children and adults have insufficient thyroid hormone in their system.

This will eventually lead to thyroid disease if left untreated.

Extreme Scenario

The most extreme scenario for the lack of balanced hormones in the system is called thyroid storm. This condition is life threatening.

Holistic Treatment

Dr. Brownstein advocates a holistic approach to the treatment of thyroid disease which may include the cessation of birth control pills or synthetic estrogen treatment while addressing nutritional deficiencies.

By adding bioidentical hormones, vitamin/mineral supplements, a proper diet with foods rich in iodine and body detoxification such as mercury detox, these symptoms of thyroid disease and associated conditions can be overcome.

His experience has shown that the use of desiccated glandular thyroid products such as Armour to be the most successful treatment, because this product closely duplicates your own thyroid production.

Medical School Protocol

Medical school protocol instructs young, impressionable doctors to prescribe Synthroid or Levothroid, levothyroxine sodium products for thyroid symptoms.

These supply only the T4 hormone. This prescription does not work.

It is a simplistic and incomplete treatment to a complex situation.

Hormone Imbalance

Your body needs the perfectly balanced hormones of T1, T2, T3, and T4, which can only be obtained in a natural desiccated glandular product such as Armour desiccated thyroid.

Consider Potential Disruptors

Additional disruptors quietly destroying your health are:

Exhausted adrenals
Mercury poisoning
and Iodine deficiency.

The decline in your health is multifaceted.
