#56617 - Getting off Meds! (Armour thyroid and Hormone Drops)
I was on 4 Armour Thyroid per day plus sublingual bioidentical
compounded plant-based hormone drops (Don't remember how many
mg of those).
What a drag it was to take that stuff.
I am pretty well-versed in various alternative methods, and
had tried other things, but each thing I tried seemed to have
its own potential health drawbacks or questionable aspects
that left me uneasy or that I felt were a less-than-optimal
answer. For myself, I refuse to be dependent upon medical
pharmaceuticals, of course that is my personal choice, and may
not be appropriate for others.
While still taking the Armour and hormones, I started with the
pH strips and informing myself about acid-balancing, and began
taking the Moreless BSM Drink with the Kelp (Kelp is a major
part of the key. Just choke it down), and after I felt a
Thyroid response, I started backing off the Armour, one at a
IOW, the first time I felt my Thyroid respond, (And was sure
that was what it was, internally-sore throat at the Thyroid
with some really heavy, coagulated expectoration), I kept up
the Drink and the Kelp and backed off to 3 of the Armour, and
observed the difference in my body over the next 3-5 days or
so. It seemed OK.
The following week, I dropped to 2 Armour. At first, it seemed
as if nothing worsened, for which I was grateful, and then
things started to noticeably improve. Once I felt actual
improvement having gone to 2 Armour instead of 4, I dropped
the last 2 (1 at a time, a week or so apart), and continued
with the Drink and the Kelp. Make certain you keep the Kelp up
to wherever it has to be for you, increase or decrease it as
I had to play the Kelp up and down while I figured things out,
when I got to 3 teaspoons per day I felt the first Thyroid
response. Don't just slam loads of Kelp into your body if you
already have Thyroid issues, ramp it up and give yourself time
to sense and observe the differences.
When I got the first Thyroid response from the Drink and the
Kelp, that Thyroid got really sore. If I hadn't recognized the
sore feeling as the same thing the Armour did when I first
started taking it, I might not have known what it was, or
might have thought I was doing the wrong thing. Now I know it
was perfect, but I did have to let my Faith carry me for a few
weeks - Pray, do whatever you have to do.
I backed off the hormones the same way, drop by drop.
The whole process as I recall, took about 2 months.
Unfortunately, I learned right away not to talk about what I
was striving to do with my family. Some feathers flew with
that :). What can I say, they love me. And I love them :).
Now it is 3 or 4 months later. I am off the Armour, off the
Hormones, am about $100. richer every month (How do they think
we're going to *pay* for all this???)
I waited until I was off the pharmaceuticals for a couple of
months before I told my family. They are thrilled for me, now
that it's done :).
