All of My NDT Journey Milestones

Click here to listen to a reading of this blog:

So, I made the jump from prescribed Levothyroxine, to self-medicating on another thyroid medicine, called NDT (Natural Desiccated Thyroid).

It has to be done safely, and you have to acknowledge that there are risks involved, especially if you don’t follow advice and protocols set by sources like Stop the Thyroid Madness for example, or a doctor, but it has changed my life around, and has done for many other thousands of thyroid patients.

IT IS available on prescription in the UK. It is just getting a doctor to give you that prescription in the first place, which can be hard.

So, I made the difficult decision to self-source and self-medicate, based on Stop the Thyroid Madness‘ advice. I strongly recommend getting their book.

You must be aware of the risks involved in self-sourcing, and I do not recommend it lightly. Please exhaust all ways of having a medical professional prescribe this thyroid medication for you, first.

You can read about my journey on switching from Levo to NDT, on the links below, where I checked in regularly over the course of a year:
