Last year when my thyroid tested low, I started taking thyroid medication...then adrenal medication...and then everything went sideways. I got jittery, I got achy, I got palpitations that kept me up. And I was so confused as to what was causing what. 

Here’s what I’ve learned: 

  1. Minerals are upstream of your adrenals, which are upstream of your thyroid. I tried solving my problems bass-ackwards.
  2. Get your iodine, iron, magnesium and potassium sorted out. (I did start with iodine, which was a good thing. Thanks, Dr. Davis!) 
  3. Check your adrenals with a 24-hour cortisol test. If you’re tired or wired at the wrong time of day, have frequent colds, even digestive problems, or a long list of other problems, it could be your adrenal function. I take adrenal cortex (Seeking Health) and sometimes hydrocortisone cream. 
  4. Finally, do your thyroid. I am now off my NDT (natural desiccated thyroid)--my low thyroid was caused by what I now know to be lifelong adrenal problems. 

Hat tip to Dr. Davis, Bob Niland, Nora Gedgaudas, and Janie Bowthorpe for helping me piece everything together.

I did saliva tests, as recommended at Stop the Thyroid Madness.

And hat tip to William McK.  Jeffreries, too. His book Safe Uses of Cortisol was expensive but worth the price.

Well, when the doctor killed my thyroid gland 22 years ago by using radioactive iodine, he said,  don’t worry about it, 80% of the people when they get older get hypothyroidism anyway.

You want copyright 2019. On the cover it says "Updated Revised Edition," and there’s a drawing of a woman in a black leotard. On the title page it says "Updated Revision." It’s ever so much better than what was compiled before, IMO.
