Janie Bowthorpe: Doctors Are Treating Thyroid Problems All Wrong

Filed under: Health — @ July 23, 2010

In Episode 383 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” The Truth About Thyroid Week continues with natural thyroid activist Janie Bowthorpe from StopTheThyroidMadness.com and author of the accompanying book Stop the Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior Treatment. When you listen to Janie speak, you can sense the frustration she’s had from over two decades of not knowing what was wrong with her and taking medications that are completely ineffective. In this interview, you’ll hear her discuss her lack of energy, depression, increased heart rate and exhaustion, why Synthroid was exactly the wrong thyroid medication for her, why she had to quit being a fitness instructor because of her thyroid symptoms, her “debilitating” reaction to exercising, the many misdiagnoses of her thyroid problems, the huge difference that Armour (desiccated pig thyroid) made to her health, the thyroid group on Yahoo she started which began her personal campaign against the wrong information being promoted about thyroid, what the purpose of desiccated thyroid is, the problems with finding Armour over the past year, why pulverizing the Armour medication makes it work a lot better, the most common symptoms of thyroid issues, the mistakes doctors make in treating thyroid problems, how you find a good doctor who understands your specific needs, the independent labs that you can have run where you can order your own tests without the need for a doctor, the response to her book despite the fact it is not available on bookstore shelves, and how she responds to the critics who say she isn’t qualified to speak so authoritatively on this subject.
