Synthroid did NOT work; Doctors said “exercise”! Armour, not exercise, changed her life.

For 5 years I felt something wasn’t right. It couldn’t be my thyroid even though I was exhausted. Afterall, I was on Synthroid. Doctor after doctor told me I was fine, that I just needed to push myself away from the table (overweight) and get some exercise. Exercise – are you out of your friggin mind????? I had the thinning hair, major body aches, heart palpitations that made me think I had a heart condition, the feeling of not being able to handle a crisis, heavy, heavy menstrual cycles and painfully dry burning eyes.

Well, a year and a half later I’m 30 pounds lighter, I have my hair back and none of the above problems. I am now on 4.5 grains and doing so so much better. It took a long time for my body to adjust and there were times I wondered if I’d ever be one of those people who would post how great they felt. My TPO blood test was at 742 (normal range 0-34) right before going on Armour. I’m still not where I need to be but I am so much better than I was. I often think of how sick I would be right now had I not found Armour. Armour gave me my life back.
