Description

Dr. Kenneth Woliner briefly explains Natural Thyroid treatment and some of the false beliefs around it. See Dr. Woliner's Blog on this topic! Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) Proves to be Optimal Alternative Approach to Combatting Hypothyroidism Kenneth N. Woliner, M.D., board-certified doctor and holistic medicine expert, will present a poster unraveling the secret success rate of Natural Thyroid, an alternative hypothyroidism treatment vs. the long-standing synthetic thyroid drug, Levothyroxine Sodium on April 14, 2014 at the Florida Academy of Family Physicians Spring Symposium in St. Petersburg, Fla. By Kenneth N. Woliner, M.D. The secret is out, and Natural Thyroid is in. Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT), an alternative hypothyroidism treatment, has been suppressed from the market for too long. While Synthroid (levothyroxine sodium), a synthetic, hormone-like bio-equivalent to the natural hormone thyroxine, has dominated the market for decades and the culprit of countless side-effects, the natural approach to hypothyroidism is finally getting its chance to show its worth. More than 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition in their lifetime -- a number surmounting to more than 20 million Americans with some form of thyroid disease, according to the American Thyroid Association. Women are 5 to 8-times more likely to have thyroid problems than men. So ladies, this article is especially for you. Millions of people with this prevalent condition have been yearning for effective treatment, yet for decades Natural Desiccated Thyroid treatments have been put on the backburner, overpowered by the marketing efforts backing the expensive synthetic thyroid drugs. Introducing the Tomato Effect Just as the 'Placebo Effect' means you think it works, but it doesn't. The 'Tomato Effect' means you think it doesn't work, but it does. The term was coined by Dr. James S. Goodwin, and referred to the misconception that tomatoes were poisonous and, consequently, not consumed in the US until the late 1800s. However, the Italians ate tomatoes in astonishing numbers and, as research developed, they proved to have significant health benefits. Can anyone say pizza? Thus, NDT may have fallen victim to the 'Tomato Effect' -- as a natural treatment to regulating thyroid disorders that many believed was ineffective, when in fact, its numbers continue to prove otherwise. In early 2013, the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism published a double-blind crossover study showing that patients preferred NDT over levothyroxine by over a 2:1 margin. So why are doctors prescribing a less-effective, more expensive T4-only drug, levothyroxine sodium, when patients respond better on natural thyroid? Unfortunately, money, bias and ignorance have stuck many doctors into a "one test, one pill" treatment mentality. Some Natural Desiccated Thyroid brands marketed in the US and Canada includes Nature-Throid, WP Thyroid, Armour Thyroid, and ERFA Thyroid. Based on my professional experience in holistic medicine, natural thyroid extract is well tolerated by my patients; especially when patients on Synthroid continue to experience symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, or brain fog. I advise exploring Natural Desiccated Thyroid treatment, especially when your symptoms remain, despite having lab tests "in range." Don't let the 'Tomato Effect' affect you!
