Product description

About the Author

Paul Robinson is a thyroid patient and sufferer. He became ill with hypothyroidism just before he was thirty years of age. He is sixty-one this year (2019). 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. He is now an established expert on hypothyroidism and how to recover from it. 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. 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. Far too many thyroid patients struggle on with remaining symptoms, often for many years. The reality is that with the right form of treatment, and understanding of research findings over recent years, it is usually possible for a patient to regain their health within months. If the thyroid patient can recover swiftly this can often prevent other health issues developing. Making a fast recovery can also limit any damage to career or job security and reduce any stress on relationships with others. A speedy recovery is really important for many reasons. For this reason, Paul wrote his third book 'The Thyroid Patient's Manual'. It will help any patient, whether they merely suspect thyroid disease, or are already under treatment that may not be going well. It covers all types of thyroid medications (not just T3). It is also consistent with recent research findings, regarding thyroid diagnosis and treatment and will help patients and doctors alike. The new book has been described by Thyroid UK as 'essential reading' for all hypothyroid patients and it has been awarded 5 star reviews by most readers on Amazon. Its main goal is to provide enough information to enable a thyroid patient to get well as fast as possible.
