Dear Doctors

Exactly the response I expected thanks for nothing! I am amazed at how much better I feel. I have more energy and I am even starting to slowly lose a few pounds. But I am still worried about all the people out there that still think they are just doomed.

I have so many questions. I am truly mystified at why Doctors seem to delight in kicking patients while they're down!

What is the motivation of doctors who apparently don't want you to get properly diagnosed or live and feel well? Do they have some sort of vested interest in ensuring higher rates of infertility, recurrent miscarriage, obesity, high cholesterol and heart disease etc, etc, by denying thyroid patients proper thyroid diagnosis and treatment?

I am not saying all doctors are in on it. I know you are all just doing what you are told by the senior consultants.

Why are things moving backward, instead of forward? Why are is the medical profession closing ranks, to not only prevent advancements in thyroid diagnosis and treatment, but to actually restrict advancement, and make things worse for thyroid patients. Do you have any answers?

I've been giving the matter an awful lot of thought over the past year or so and I think the answer is obvious. It's because they are being paid to! I know it sounds cynical, but the reluctance to use natural hormones instead of synthetic drugs, is it because you can not make money out of a hormone, as it is natural and can't be patented? What I am saying is the whole thing is a big conspiracy to make more money!

I feel like I am just a small part of the whole picture, a pawn in somebody else's game plan.

Armour, has been around a long time, it was only in the 1950's that synthetics took over opening up a Pandora 's Box of new ills. There is no evidence against it, it is better and more natural. I'm animal not synthetic, Armour gives me everything my body needs, T1,T2,T3 and T4 it's not rocket science!

Dear Doctors you are worse than the MP's with their second homes, you are dealing with peoples lives here, may your conscience guide you or may you be unable to sleep at night!

Now successfully treated with Armour I can get on with my life, remain productive, healthy and work and pay taxes. I feel wonderful! No more falls, no more constant chest pains, the sickness and diarrhoea went within two days of taking Armour, I have no more brain fog, clear as a bell and I'm as happy as Larry! Just one little symptom left, I still get out of breath and I could bet my life that was caused by taking the synthetic T4 that my body could not tolerate for seven months.

Nothing is more closed than a closed mind that thinks it's open
and nothing is more manipulated than a manipulated mind that thinks it's free. You are living in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Yours Sincerely,

  • Hi Tina, I hope it works as well for you as it did for me, you do not say how long you have been on Levothyroxine?
    I took it for seven months and it made me extremely ill! I felt like I had flu all the time,I had constant chest pains, a sore throat,loss of balance, spots, dry itchy skin, hair falling out in handfuls, three bad falls and weight gain etc. etc. my body just would not tolerate it, in fact I felt worse than before I started taking it. I have none of these sypmtoms left, I still get a bit tired but then I am 50 in October, work full time, have a house and garden to look after, a 22 year old son still at home and two stone in weight left to loose, but compared to how I was it like the difference between night and day!

    Do you know why the Doctors tell you wouldn't understand? It's because they really haven't got a clue. When I told them about all my symptoms they looked at me as if I was going mad and told me to double my dose!

    Good luck,to change one's life: Start immediately, take chances, because chances not taken have no chance at all! Denise

  • Hi, I can really sympathise with you, I was near suicidal on that stuff. I now take 1.5 grains of Armour that is equivalent to 150 of levothyroxine according to the conversion rate so 100 would be 1 grain, but the research I did said we may need slightly more Armour.

    I was on 100 before I started taking it. I took half a 1.5 grain tablet with 25g of levothyroxine for the first week then 1.5 after that and no levothyroxine. After 6 wks on Armour my bloods came back normal, just as they did on the other stuff, but I feel and look ten times better!

    Give it a try you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Everybody is different, but I was amazed at the results I had in a very short space of time. Good luck, I hope it works for you too! It has saved my life. Let me know how you get on. Denise

  • Hi sorry to take so long to respond but I don't have a computer at home and I have been off work for a few days!
    My son purchased my Armour of the internet from the International Pharmacy, it's the best thing he every did for me, I can not imagine were I would be now without it. AS for doctors hitting your head against a brickwall comes to mind. I don't really like self medicating, but left to them I'd be on my last legs, all I can say is thank you little piggies, this stuff really gives you wings!

  • Excellent news! Let's hope your story will inspire others to seek out Armour instead of settling for inadequate T4 only therapy ;)

  • Pinch me, am I dreaming or do I really feel this well?

    ItĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢s been two months since I started taking Armour. IĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢ve lost 10 lbs and feel amazing no more symptoms I feel NORMAL, life is wonderful and I have everything to live for!

    I have always been positive but an under active thyroid saw me drifting away! Unsympathetic doctors go and rot! You can't keep this woman under your thumb, it's my life and I am going to live it!

    IĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢M BACKĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦ĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦ĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦ĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦ĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦ĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă‚Â¦.. Yepee!

  • PS I did see more than one specialist, they quite honetly were a complete waste of time the UK is going back to the dark ages and until money is taken out of the equation I can not see any improvement happening soon!

  • Dear Doc,

    I will never allow myself to be made a victim and quite honestly that's how you are made to feel. I told them I had sever chest pains all the time and more than 30 other debilitating symptoms, did they listen? The answer is no, and why because they the doctors are being told what to do by the top guys who are raking in the pounds from drug companies! There is no other treatment other than synthetic T4 in the UK.

    People out there still think they are just doomed and I know you can feel better with Armour, I have no symptoms left other than shortness of breath and even that is clearing up, I have also lost 10lbs, I am living proof that you can feel better!

    We should be more like the Chinese Emperors and only pay our doctors when we are well, then and only they would they be more cooperative instead of thinking they are some kind of gods!

  • I'm sorry Doc but when it comes to the illnesses we are all suffering from here, we have learnt from bitter experience that blindly trusting our doctors is not the prudent course of action. At best it tends to result in little to no improvement and at worst it can cause relapse or worsening of symptoms.

    'As far as "proper diagnosis" ... That is decided by the physician, not the patient.'

    This is a prime example of the arrogance of doctors and a major reason why patients do not receive adequate treatment, especially with difficult to treat illnesses. For effective treatment to be the outcome the patient should be a partner in the process at every stage. Doctors need to rediscover the vital knowledge that the patient's symptomology and subjective experience of their illness are equally as important as lab tests.

    As an example of the failure of doctors to provide adequate treatment to their patients we only need to look at a recent case involving chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) patients. In the UK the NICE guidelines for CFS were challenged in court by patients and their carers (and a handful of more enligtened doctors) for the simple reason that the recommended treatments don't work for CFS patients in the real world.

  • I did attend a endocrinologist, privately, and that is who diagnosed my Hashimotos, but why should I trust my GP, when I suffered for nearly 40 years with thyroid problems, and he refused to treat me. Now that I am diagnosed, there is no improvement with my condition and nobody seems to listen. Some times I am sucicidal with it :(

  • Hi Denise, I am completely new to the forum, but I have had the same problem except mine has been undiagnosed since I was 17, I am now 53. I have suffered nervous problems since then, in fact it has destroyed my life, and my doctor would not treat my thyroid, even though I had a goitre, he said my blood tests were normal.... until my mum died in 2005, and I went privately to get tests and guess what, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos' disease, an thyroid autoimune disease, my antibodies were very very high, so they started me on thyroxine 100mcg, that is nearly four years ago. I am four stone overweight and have no energy, I am on antidepressants, and suffer from loads of things. My doctor will not change the dose, so I did it myself, but nothing happened. So I asked what was the point in taking it??? they couldn't answer me. I belong to the thyroid uk group, and have read a lot about armour, I wrote to my MP, and have followed the stories re the prescribing of Armour, or rather lack of it. I could just cry I feel so down at the moment, and so tired..... I have joined this forum, hopefully to enlighten people, about this scandal. I think maybe I will try ARmour myself, after all I have nothing to lose. Bye
