The dawn of the 21st century brought with it one of the most profound and wide-reaching patient activist movements in history: Stop the Thyroid Madness (STTM). Created by the dynamic Janie A. Bowthorpe M.Ed, the patient-to-patient STTM revolution birthed life-changing hypothyroid treatment knowledge and protocols to counter decades of treatment mismanagement due to the use of inferior medications, the wrong lab work, and a poor understanding of symptoms. Now, as Editor, Ms. Bowthorpe brings the reader this acclaimed and brilliant second book, Stop the Thyroid Madness II, authored by over a dozen insightful medical professionals. Each practitioner brings years of excellence and insight into their chapters, not only complimenting what informed thyroid patients have learned, but offering deeper wisdom and knowledge. You'll read about the functional and holistic approach to thyroid disease, how stress affects the thyroid patient, the superior treatment of natural desiccated thyroid, why the TSH lab test is inadequate, what "normal" really doesn't mean when it comes to lab work, the importance of nutrition in regaining health and well-being, all about the autoimmune Hashimoto's version of hypothyroidism, why doctors are the way they are and how to relate to them, gluten and nutritional issues, thyroid toxicity and how to counter those toxins, the Reverse T3 problem, how MTHFR and methylation blockages can affect thyroid patients, and an understanding of why so many thyroid patients end up with low cortisol, aka hypocortisolism.

There is growing awareness that some people do not appear to recover their former health using the standard levothyroxine (T4) thyroid medication and may remain with many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism that they first went to their doctor with. The author describes his struggle with hypothyroidism and how eventually he regained his health using a medication called liothyronine sodium, which is a synthetic equivalent of the thyroid hormone T3. The use of T3 finally enabled the author to make a complete recovery, although there were many lessons that he needed to learn about T3 in order to regain his health. This book covers a vast amount of technical and practical information relating to T3 medication and details how the author applied this information in order to get well. The book has a foreword by Dr. John C. Lowe, who has this to say about the book: "Paul Robinson has written a book chock-full of information on T3 that is vitally important to many people. I believe that reading 'Recovering with T3 My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone' will be a splendid experience for thousands of people, whether clinicians, patients, patient advocates, or patients' loved ones." 'Recovering with T3' is quite simply essential reading for any patient and their doctor if they are considering the use of the T3 thyroid hormone. This revised edition contains many enhancements and improvements over the original Recovering with T3 book released at the end of 2011. Enhancements were made due to some valuable patient feedback and the experience of thousands of thyroid patients with the T3 dosage management process and the highly effective circadian T3 method (CT3M). The Revised Edition of the book is the result of these improvements, some simple typo fixes and the addition of a much-requested index. "Thank you " to thyroid patients around the world for the wonderful feedback that has enabled the creation of this Revised Edition with an index.
