I am very intrigued by this timely find. I have been looking and looking for information on Hashimoto’s and calcitonin. I am a nutritional therapist and I too see there is a better way of healing people and it isn’t just with drugs. Now in saying that, I must declare that I am on t3 only as a medication and feel as if the bag has been pulled off my head. 15 yrs of being treated with Synthroid! I have tried to take iodine, but without knowing the proper way to get it into my body and the dosage I have steered clear, only taking in dulse and nori. If it’s ok, I will email your above address, I would love to hear more about the ovaries producing thyroid hormone!
