I assume you are currently taking thyroid medication? I'd stick with Rx meds since they are controlled by the FDA. If you don't like synthetics like Synthroid (levothyroxine) then ask about Armour, it is made from Bovine thyroid like the supplement you listed.

I have Hashimoto's and have been on Synthroid since July. I'm still having symptoms and am due to go back to the Endocrinologist next week. I don't think I would mess around with something that wasn't prescribed.

I too have heard great things about Armour. I plan on looking into this further as well. Hips....stay on your prescribed Thyroid meds until you've talked to your Endo about your find. I've been a total idiot these past few weeks and didn't take the time to refill my Levoxyl. So now after just 14 days I'm already feeling the effects. Sluggish, depressed and now my right eye looks a bit popped. I'm all for alternative medicine but just like with my asthma meds, some conventional meds are what has to be taken. I think thyroid meds happen to be one of those 'musts' BUT...as sunshine mentioned, there are alternatives within that group of meds that can make a world of difference in how you feel. I've head nothing but raves from people on Armour. OH....and my tattoo artist friend suggested a book to me called "Stop the Thyroid Madness". I'll email her about your Raw Thyroid find and see if she knows anything about it. She's a hard core raw foodist so she probably has heard of it.

I just started Armour last week after being on Synthroid for 4 months. I feel like a new person. All of my symptoms have gone away and the weight is finally coming off.

I asked my friend who had her thyroid removed due to cancer and she said that some doctors recommend it for patients who does not respond well to Synthroid. her doctor does not recommend it because it's not really standardized which makes it harder to maintain blood TSH on the same level compared to Synthroid.

It takes a VERY long time for some people to regulate their thyroid once on medication. I have been on synthroid for 5 years and I just now am on the dose that is right for me. (Pregnancy throught things off too)

I had been on Levoxyl and Cytomel for the past 5 years. I felt OK and my bloodwork always looked good but I still had some symptoms like my hair shedding. I switched to Armour 3 months ago and feel so much better and my hair isn't shedding so bad anymore! I have adjusted the dose twice in that 3 month period and need to go in for another blood test this month. I wish I would have switched to this a long time ago...
