Each day, when I think about the passing of Dr. Lowe (which you can read about here), I reel in shock at this huge loss in our fight for better thyroid treatment and SANITY.
And now we have to ask: who will fill those shoes when it comes to the continuation of thyroidscience.org and the courageous message of Dr. Lowe?? Even the front page contains an important article titled “TSH is Not the Answer,” a report Dr. Carol Rowsemitt and Dr. Thomas Najarian: Their explanation and verification i.e. Dr. Lowe fought for what PATIENTS ALREADY KNOW TO BE TRUE about the lousy TSH lab test!
And Lowe announced that he was next coming out with an article concerning ” false statements of fact online about T3-containing thyroid products including Armour Thyroid” by The British Thyroid Association and UK Royal College of Physicians. He continued: ” The scientific facts patently show the falsehood of the two organizations’ statements. Is this a failure of responsibility to study scientific issues before making public pronouncements on them? Or do the statements constitute science fraud?” Unless it was already written, we might never see this article. But we all know the truth.
The loss of Dr. Lowe propels me to ask: Who do YOU see as a medical professional who has the following qualities:
- high intelligence
- an interest in true science rather than blindly following research with outcomes based on who paid for certain studies
- the courage to speak the truth, even if it goes against the grain of staid medical opinion
- compassion for thyroid patients and the willingness to listen to their experiences
Who, as a medical professional, can patients give a vote of confidence to as someone who can continue the legacy of Dr. Lowe? Propose some names by commenting on this blog post below.

WANT TO PAY IT FORWARD AS TO WHAT STTM HAS GIVEN YOU?
Out of my own savings last Fall, I paid for three months in hiring a publicist for the message of Stop the Thyroid Madness…i.e. through the end of December. My goal is to reach far more who may not understand WHY they have problems thanks to the lousy TSH lab test or T4-only meds like Synthroid, Levothyroxine, etc. And she has done a fabulous job in getting interviews and articles out there–you can see what she has done on the donation page mentioned below.
After December, patients donations completely paid for January. Now we are working on February, and nearly half way there. But this will end sooner than later if more donations don’t come in. Go here to read about it and Pay It Forward.
HAVE YOU CONSIDERED YOU MAY NOT NEED HC TO HEAL YOUR ADRENALS? OR IF ON HC, YOU CAN DO THIS A LOT FASTER?
UK thyroid and adrenal patient Paul Robinson made a VERY interesting discovery–that he could heal his adrenals with his unique use of T3. Yup, and he SUCCEEDED. And it’s quite exciting news for adrenal fatigue patients. Additionally, if you are on T3, his T3 titration process alone is vastly superior to most other recommendations in the use of T3, and means you can use less!!
Take the time to find out for yourself!! There’s a good summary of what he discovered in the new STTM Facebook Adrenals group (and please note this group is for PATIENTS ONLY, not medical professionals. And for approval to the group, you canNOT have a hidden info and friends. We have to be this way to keep out spammers, and to see that you are who you say you are). You can also order his book from this Recommended books page on STTM. To order the patient-to-patient STTM book, go here.
