    Thyroid dosing for Dog or Cat Using Temperature And Pulse. Is it possible? Anyone Tried?

    I thought it would be completely impractical until I realized you could use an ear thermometer with a longer probe designed for animals (as opposed to using a rectal reading). The problem is I don't know of any ideal pulse or temperature. Has anyone tried the Broda Barnes technique on a pet?

    Cynomel/Cynoplus probable absorption issues

    I noticed several years ago that I had been taking a LOT of thyroid (Cynomel and CynoPlus), and still had symptoms like weight gain and low pulse/temps. I remember feeling like suddenly I couldn't feel the effects of taking thyroid. Also, I had an ankle injury that put me out 30 lbs in 1 month...

    Thyroid With Food? (Or Not)

    Hello everyone, In the last 2 or 3 weeks I took my thyroid (Novothyral T4/T3 mix) in split doses after meals as Ray suggested, but right now, I feel like only a partial portion of it gets absorbed by doing so as my pulse and bodytemp has gotten lower in comparison to before and my constipation...

    How long for thyroid to return to normal function

    After using NDT or synthetic t4 t3 for 3+ months. How long does it take for your TSH & thyroid function to return to equilibrium? After stopping do you encounter uncomfortable symptoms? Is it temporary?

    Confusion about NDT and T4

    Broda Barnes cured several diseases by using "grains" so I suppose he was using NDT. I don't remember him focusing on T3 only. In the protocol to heal hypothyroidism, thyroid might be needed for years in some cases. My question is : How come Broda Barnes never really cared about rt3 ? Why some...

    Why Would A Man Lose All Visible Underarm Hair?

    Even teenage girls have pigmented underarm hair so I'm not sure how this happens to a male. I had also lost all visible forearm hair even though I had normal brown forearm hair prior to puberty then no longer visible after about 20 years (just fine unpigmented vellus hair). Unfortunately the...

    Thyroid dosage, looking for friendly advice

    TL;DR: Decided to experiment with Tyromix. Admittedly I simply skimmed over the dosage protocol Ray recommends lmao, not very wise. took about 20 drops of Tyromix total in the span of 3 days(120 mcg T4, 60cmg T3). Expecting some reverseT3(??) and difficulties for my body to adjust to the crazy...

    I have always had reverse T3 on the lowest end of the range, and this time it was below range: 7.4 ng/dL For the last month and half I have experimented with a 2:1 T4 to T3 ratio, taking 100 mcg of T4 and between 40 to 50 mcg consistently almost every day (split in 4 to 5 doses depending on my...

    Anyone having success on T4 monotherapy or T4 with a little bit of T3?

    If yes, please specify your dose. Common dosages for T4 range from 50 to 200 mcg, which is higher that what I see on this forum. I'm currently doing 75mcg T4 + 25mcg T3.

    Is T4 important?

    Apart from coverting to T3, is there another reason why we need T4? I was taking Tyromax and wasn’t getting the temps needed- I tried for about 8 months and eventually my reverse T3 just started getting higher and higher. So, I’ve switched to T3 solo- oral temps regaularly at 37 but armpit stays...

    What could be the reason I am getting nose bleeds after recently starting T3 supplementation? Is this a sign that I'm taking too much or that I need to take T4 with it as well?

    Does anyone know if thyroid medication can cause swelling of the lymph nodes? I would assume that it can as too much can cause the swelling of the thyroid and that thyroid hormone helps produce white blood cells and the white blood cells are produced in the lymph nodes so that supplementing...
