David Brownstein, M.D. is the author of The Miracle of Natural Hormones, 2nd Edition and in this interview, talks about the use of natural hormones in the treatment of hypothyroidism. Natural hormones include natural progesterone and estrogens, DHEA, melatonin and thyroid.

Some key points Doctor Brownstein makes include:
  • It is impossible to balance the hormonal system without adequately addressing the thyroid gland. In addition, some of the best results he has in medicine have to do with using natural thyroid hormone or Armour Thyroid.
  • Armour Thyroid provides the best results for the majority of patients. Armour thyroid not only contains T3 and T4, but it contains many other factors that facilitate the conversion of T4 to T3 including calcitonin, T1, T2 and many other chemicals that we have not even identified.
  • All patients with thyroid problems need to be properly evaluated for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
  • Often, just by correcting the dietary insufficiencies, their thyroid symptoms will improve. It is well known that adequate protein and fat is necessary to convert T4 to T3.
A detailed and comprehensive interview with Dr. Brownstein is featured online.
