Thyroid patients often have symptoms associated with low cortisol (hypocortisolism). These can include: severe fatigue; low blood sugar; aches/pains; dizziness; poor response to thyroid hormones; anxiety; fluctuating body temperature; digestive upsets; allergies; nausea; low blood pressure - to name but a few.
Thyroid hormones will not work correctly if the adrenal glands do not produce an adequate level of cortisol. Consequently, patients with hypocortisolism often continue to have symptoms, even if thyroid hormone levels have been corrected. Symptoms of low cortisol appear to be at epidemic levels among thyroid patients.
The author explains why hypocortisolism can often be present when a thyroid patient is taking thyroid medication. The Circadian T3 Method (CT3M) is an approach to using T3 or natural desiccated thyroid medications that mimics the natural rhythm of our thyroid hormones, and helps to improve adrenal hormone levels.
CT3M has been used by thousands of thyroid patients since the author first introduced it in his first book 'Recovering with T3'. CT3M is providing thyroid patients, and their doctors, with a simple, natural way to correct hypocortisolism .
The CT3M Handbook book explains CT3M in depth. It provides thyroid patients, and their doctors, with the wealth of information that is needed when using CT3M in order to get truly well.
The book has a foreword by Dr. Sarah Myhill, who has this to say about the book: "It gives every thyroid patient the clues, the rules and most importantly the confidence to identify underlying impediments to recovering their health, and adjust their dosage of thyroid hormones to an individually tailored regime, in collaboration with an informed doctor. Paul's attention to detail is second to none. Furthermore, he looks outside simple hormone issues to the many other dietary and lifestyle changes, which are so important for long-term health. I would recommend this book to any patient with undiagnosed health problems or diagnosed hypothyroidism, but who has failed to respond to standard mono-therapy with thyroxine."
The CT3M Handbook is a must-read for all thyroid patients struggling with hypocortisolism. It is also essential reading for doctors who have patients like these in their care. It is a companion book to the author's first book (Recovering with T3).
