In this video, we’re going to talk about natural desiccated thyroid, and why some people feel worse when they take it.

We’re going to be talking about:

• Armour
• Nature Throid 
• NP Thyroid

These all contain pig thyroid extracts. Why would someone feel worse with something more natural versus something synthetic? It could be because Armour, Nature Throid, and NP Thyroid have additional ingredients that you’re reacting to like dextrose or cornstarch. 

If you have extreme fatigue or flu-like symptoms, you may have Hashimoto’s. The majority of people who have hypothyroidism have Hashimoto’s. It’s almost as if you’re allergic to your own thyroid gland. 

What I would do if I had this condition: 

• Switch to Synthroid (synthetic T4)
• Take Thytrophin PMG (thyroid extract without the hormones)

With healthy keto and intermittent fasting, the need for thyroid hormones will go down, and it will help you drop inflammation. You may also want to take vitamin D.
