Thyroid Hormones with SCD

Dr Haas reported that children who took thyroid hormones with SCD healed faster than children who did SCD but did not get thyroid hormones.

It is better to take natural hormones from animals rather than the synthetic ones. For the sake of the SCDiet, the safest way is to get the animal extract in a gelatin capsule with olive oil as the filler. This can be gotten at Women's International Pharmacy.

This pharmacy also serves men and children. Women's International Pharmacy, provides compounded thyroid hormones, which have been prescribed by licensed physicians.

Some people use iodine rather than thyroid hormones. Low body temperature is a good indicator of thyroid dysfunction.

Bacterial toxins impair thyroid function so it is possible that you might need less thyroid hormones after improving with SCD.
