reduce is not replace, 2 different things.I have been experimenting with caffeine plus aspirin etc as a way to reduce thyroid hormone dose.
Can't the cells be "thyroid resistant?"Thyroid makes me depressed and weird.
Act like? or has some effect to not feel the lack of thyroid?There are a few post saying that caffeine with aspirin will act like thyroid.
Mimic the EFECT.Ray Peat has said that when he didn't use thyroid. He took about 40 cups of coffee to mimic the effects of thyroid.
Yeah, ADRENALINE. And EVEN if you have adequate calories, what if you have some adrenal fatigue? Or if you already have high adrenaline anyway because of your poor metaboism?If you take thyroid without adequate calories you will trigger estrogen and adrenaline.
+1 Isn't caffeine triggering the surenals? Of course less if you have sugar in it, but...Only thyroid works like thyroid.
Once you optimize your thyroid levels
you'll need very little or no caffeine.
If you need caffein, you have a surrenal problem under the thyroid problem, and have to take care of things in order.
I just think about those people like myself,with obvious hypothyroid signs, but normal levels, or who REACT to thyroid!
What if T stays in your blood and is just not high in the CELL?
I was about to conclude that we might have to be careful in the long term. If we run on adrenaline, then we can have heat and pulse to maybe, but if adrenals crash, then nothing to push the matabolism... I also have higher temps now, even over 37º, curiously, why so high, but also higher environmental temps outside... and I am sure I hold on with my surrenals. Will the fire go on?I think so too. i started with a temperature at about 36 and now 2 years later i am over 37 . Without thyroid and regular supplements!! Just with food, coffee and some aspirin.
I stay careful and look how to rest those poor little glands!
