Wholey shmoley! this morning my stupid defective thyroid gland just made me gain another kilogram grrrrrh!
A few years ago the doctors kept x-raying me for every little thing that went wrong, anyway all this overload of radiation from the x-ray machine caused my thyroid gland to become faulty, it will eventually die (the gland not me)
Unfortunately for me the australian government only supplies Thyroxine medication, it sometimes goes under the name Oroxine but is the same synthetic thyroid hormone stuff for this disorder named hypothyroidism.
I know synthetic iron tablets aren't absorbed by my body (I have to use organic iron tablets from the health food store) so I guess the synthetic thyroid hormone also isn't responding to my body too.
25 years ago In the USA they invented a natural thyroid medication which is named Armour Thyroid, it is easily absorbed into the body the T3 and T4 quantities being fine tuned to each individual. They also have the synthetic one that is only T4 they call it synthroid.
I begged the doctor to get Armour thyroid in for me but he laughed and said as our government won't financially approve it, it would cost a major fortune.
I guess until a health minister has a family member that is suffering with hypothyroidism there will be no change into bringing this tablet into the county that works.
I have been working so hard because my daughter is possibly getting married in April. I hope I can stay strong menally and give it another go. I can't let this thyroid condition win.
This is a letter that one lady wrote to Dr Phil when he said that anyone can lose weight. hypothyroids just have to work 3 times harder but it can be done, it's called
