herbs for low thyroid in case meds are not available?

Recommended Posts

:lol:   OKaaay, I decided to just make the thread.  It's over in the forum  Natures Prescriptions tho this will include pharmacy-type meds too.   If Annarchy can go over there and PIN it....it will stay at the top....available for reference.

Out of the ordinar,  the bovine thyroid is all natural from pigs and is very much like our own bodies.  Armour thyroid is suppose to be the same but by RX only.  I have now ordered the bovine thyrod from nutri meds and as soon as I can find out about dates and how to store long term I will post on the other forum about it.  I ordered the 130 mg and quartered it. So starting off with the lower dose.  I have not taken the synthroid now in about a week and feeling better. I went back and ordered the 65 mg. So only have to cut in half and after a bit of research, I also ordered the adrenal glandular.  Those haven't come yet but has shipped, so will be adding the adrenal glandular to see how I am feeling. Hoping that this all works out well for me. Then after a bit more research to find out shelf life of both of them. i am going to start to stock up on it as it is looking like our heathcare system is starting to fall apart. Already they are talking about a shortage of heprin that is needed for heart surgery. This is not a good sign. And just a sample of things to come. Most of our prescription meds come from over seas. It's past time that we start manafacturing our drugs in the USA and fix our FDA for approval of these drugs and not having the FDA paying our politians for favors to look the other way.

Bovine is cattle.  Porcine is pig.

 

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bovine

 

Definition of bovine

 (Entry 1 of 2)

1 : of, relating to, or resembling bovines and especially the ox or cow a bovine disease

 

Definition of bovine (Entry 2 of 2)

biology : any of a subfamily (Bovinae) of bovids including oxen, bison, buffalo, and their close relatives

 

=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

 

Just in case someone is allergic to one or the other.  In that case it might be important to know which is which......  :shrug: 

 

And you are correct, Little Sister .....that pigs are similar to our own human bodies in some important ways. 

1)  Back in the Day...they used pig heart valves, for instance, for transplant into humans.  Because we're similar enough not to totally reject that tissue. 

 

2)  The bad news is that we humans can catch the pig related diseases:  Swine [another pig word, of course] flu was horrible.  .....There is a disease decimating pigs in China right now.....hope it doesn't do a species jump to humans!!!!   :unsure: 

 

DH is also attempting to get NON-prescription alternatives.  Being a chiro, he has the professional knowledge of these things.  But so far, I'm not sure it's been working well enough.  I think he just didn't get ON IT fast enough.  He's trying to find a medical person to WORK WITH HIM...not mandate to him.  He's way above the level of the last 'nurse practitioner' snitty person!  This job has his stuff flaring up....but hopefully just 2 days/wk will be ok.  :(

 

Hope y'all can get stocked up in whatever you need to stay stable!

Out of the ordinar,  the bovine thyroid is all natural from pigs and is very much like our own bodies.  Armour thyroid is suppose to be the same but by RX only.  I have now ordered the bovine thyroid from Neuta meds.  And yes the bovine is from cows. Guess I had pigs on my mind.  And with the swine flu or whatever is killing off the pigs maybe bovine is the best choice. I have now been taken 32.5 mg a day and can already feel a difference.  Waiting now for the other one to come in for the adrenal glands. Hoping it all works for me as well as the ratings are saying. Only time will tell. At end of month I get labs done. So will see what happens from there.

I knew bovine was cows and ovine was sheep but for the life of me I couldn't remember what pigs were. All I could think of was swine.

 

Funny you should mention the newest pig virus. I just watched a YouTube about it. Started in Africa and has spread all over Asia. Nasty stuff. They were saying do not buy any pig related items from China including dog foods and those pigs ears from the pet stored. They say it's highly contagious and can even be spread on shoes. 

 

Note:

This has been sitting here for a couple of days waiting for me to hit the submit button. I just saw it.  Sigh.

It can feel hopeless. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking about at the very moment I finished typing the post. Must not have had anything to do with actually sending the post. Probably a very important squirrel in the back yard caught my attention and I was off.

 

Making a dumb move like that gets me closer and closer to a nanny. Or a cabana boy. Do you have to have a pool before you get a cabana boy? I might need to start digging a pool hole soon for next summer. A woman's work is never done.  Sigh.

The adrendal gland meds came in today so will start that tomorrow. Hoping to feel a big difference by end of month. Already feeling a difference from the Bovine thyroid meds.  labs will be done end of month. So wll see what happens. Really hoping it is working so I will have that back up.  right now with the synthroid, I am 6 months ahead of the game. But might not be able to get any if SHTF.

 

I think that was me that forgot to finish a post and never hit submit.  Think it was DH was calling me as he scratched himself and was bleeding all over the place.  Gotta love blood thinners. Sorry for that.
