There is growing awareness that some people do not appear to recover their former health using the standard levothyroxine (T4) thyroid medication and may remain with many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism that they first went to their doctor with.
The author describes his struggle with hypothyroidism and how eventually he regained his health using a medication called liothyronine sodium, which is a synthetic equivalent of the thyroid hormone T3. The use of T3 finally enabled the author to make a complete recovery, although there were many lessons that he needed to learn about T3 in order to regain his health.
This book covers a vast amount of technical and practical information relating to T3 medication and details how the author applied this information in order to get well.
The book has a foreword by Dr. John C. Lowe, who has this to say about the book: "Paul Robinson has written a book chock-full of information on T3 that is vitally important to many people. I believe that reading 'Recovering with T3 My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone' will be a splendid experience for thousands of people, whether clinicians, patients, patient advocates, or patients' loved ones."
'Recovering with T3' is quite simply essential reading for any patient and their doctor if they are considering the use of the T3 thyroid hormone.
This 'Updated Edition 2018' is a significant revision of the book from start to finish. It is based on more experience using the concepts within the book, and incorporates recent, and important, thyroid research study findings.
Paul Robinson is a thyroid patient and fellow sufferer.
He became ill with hypothyroidism just before he was thirty years of age. He is sixty this year (2018). He has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on thyroid and adrenal dysfunction. His scientific background enabled him to fight through the morass of misinformation and recover his health.
Paul, was put on the most common thyroid treatment to begin with - Levothyroxine (also known as Synthroid or T4). However, the majority of his symptoms remained, much like they do for many on T4-therapy. Over time he became even more ill, with both low cortisol and low thyroid symptoms.
Paul saw many endocrinologists and doctors. Many of these were privately paid for, as he got more desperate and worried about losing his career. Eventually, he realised that he had to figure out what was wrong himself. During this time he was told, "You will have to live with it", "You have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", "You cannot have a thyroid issue, as your thyroid results are within range". All of these were nonsense!
He eventually recovered. But the costs were great. Over a 10-year period, the struggle had cost him his career, and relationships were damaged. Paul's own family doctor at the time was so impressed with the work he had done to get well that she suggested he write about it.
In the 'Recovering with T3' book he describes how he recovered from thyroid and adrenal hormone issues. He describes how he lost his health, his career and he touches on the personal cost. He had lost all of his thirties and some of his forties.
However, Paul did get well again, after he had been written-off by the medical profession. In the process of getting well he developed a safe protocol for using the T3 thyroid hormone (Liothyronine). This protocol is explained in detail in the Recovering with T3 book. In order to fully recover he developed an innovative approach called the Circadian T3 Method (CT3M) that can correct adrenal function in many cases. This is all discussed in the first book. His second book, 'The CT3M Handbook', talks more about CT3M, based on patient experience with it.
Paul has now been taking T3-Only (T3-monotherapy) for over 20 years now. He has has worked with thousands of thyroid and adrenal patients, via many Internet forums, and some 1-1 coaching sessions. He knows that every individual thyroid patient needs a solution that suits him or her. All the thyroid hormone treatments have a role. With good clinical judgment, and all the available thyroid treatments, there is no reason for anyone to continue without symptom relief.
His books are:
'Recovering with T3' - essential reading for those people intending to use T3-Only or T3-Mostly therapy.
'The CT3M Handbook' - for any patient who needs more information on using CT3M to help improve cortisol levels. This provides more details on the CT3M protocol described in Recovering with T3.
'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' - available in June 2018. This is a detailed guide on how to recover from hypothyroidism from the first step to the last. It covers ALL the thyroid hormone replacement options (not just T3). It is also consistent with recent research findings, regarding thyroid diagnosis and treatment.
Paul continues to be active as an advocate for thyroid patients through this website:
