New Study Shows Natural Thyroid is Better by Jeffrey Dach MD


Natural Thyroid has been used successfully for more than 100 years (3), and it is blatantly obvious to any experienced clinician that natural desiccated thyroid is superior to T4-only medications such as Synthroid and Levothyroxine.

(1) Over the years, they have used a variety of reasons. The latest reason is that there are no controlled trials .

This is based on a widely held assumption that the body will convert what it needs to the biologically active form T3. Based on this assumption, most physicians and endocri- nologists believe that the normalization of TSH with a T4 preparation demonstrates adequate tissue levels of thyroid.
