This is actually kind of dangerous! It's easy to get a quick response in adrenal patients by giving them t3--I had many periodic boosts by trying thyroid medication over the many years i have had this--but you ALWAYS crash later. It's like a crash diet--you will lose weight but it will mess up your body.
What happens is if you rev up the engine of the thyroid but the adrenals are still weak, you crash later and make the adrenals WORSE and it takes LONGER to heal.
When my Dr. explained this to me it was like this huge lightbulb going off.
This is really kind of like giving an adrenal patient CAFFIENE and saying, look they feel so much better!
You have to heal the adrenals. It's so frustrating that the effective protocol from Clymer Healing Center they've developed and actually works, developed over decades, is not out there more! People are sort of doing all these guinea pig experiments when they don't need to be!
You have to support the adrenals FIRST with supplements, rest, diet, sleep (by 1030pm) and THEN when your ASI saliva test shows that you are actually getting better, which usually i think takes awhile it did for me, but it was SO different from a quick fix, THEN you can deal with the thyroid.
It's like revving up the engine and driving really fast when the car is dragging its muffler and about to fall apart to treat the thyroid with T3 and not treat the clangy banging dangerous broken muffler first.
