Hi Dr Sutter. I read the recommended thread started by jessesmom1987 and have a similar problem and wanted advice. :)
I don't have a thyroid. I recently became really hypothyroid from not getting the right meds and from switching off of Synthroid/Cytomel to Armour. Since starting Armour, I am getting the same problems everyone else has with the anxiety and panic attacks. I am not even on nearly the dosage I should be on, I can only take 1/2 grain and I should be on like 2 or 3 grains so I am still suffering from being hypothyroid. But anything higher and I get anxiety attacks. I have never had these before..I thought I was dying when I had my first one and had to take another medication to make it pass. It was THAT bad. Normally, I don't touch any kind of drug whatsoever except for my thyroid meds.
Now doing more reading online, it's getting frustrating to read that to go on the "natural" drug, I need to take DRUGS to make my Adrenals work such as Isocort or Prednisolone etc. This makes no sense to me and it's not what I want to do..
It's not caused by lack of sleep. I never really had sleep problems. My routine has stayed the same. Since switching to Armour, I just have major fatigue, yawning to the point my eyes tear and weakness starting in the afternoons and lasting until I do go to bed and I wake up the same 8 hours later. My life isn't that 'stressful" either so that's not it.
My lymph system is a mess. Been that way for a while. Edema and tiny, hard balls everywhere. I do rebound it's just hard to stick with it when this fatigue is overwhelming. I want to do it a few times a day for at least a few minutes but usually only manage 10mins in the morning now.
Umm what else..My colon is clean. I've been on Oxypowder for 3 months straight because being so Hypo it's the only thing that keeps me "regular". I parasite cleansed 6 months ago and saw nothing. I was going to do another cycle of Humaworm this month but now finding out I have adrenal issues I think it might be too much on my system. And my liver isn't "clean" or "stone free" but it doesn't hurt or anything. I don't feel "strong" enough to liver flush.. rather just drink juices or supplements to slowly help..haven't decided yet.
Do I start another cleansing and detoxing cycle?
Can I fast?
Any particular juices to drink?
Um any idea how can I get my adrenals working without drugs? Doesn't seem like anyone with thyroid issues has had success with the few supplements or herbs in this area.
