Metabolism and Thyroid Hormone: 7 Steps to Heal your Slow Metabolism

​Test your metabolism:

Do you gain weight by just smelling food?

Have you been on multiple calorie restricted diets throughout your life?

Are you eating 1,000 calories per day just to MAINTAIN your weight?

Are you cold, fatigued, and exhausted? 

If you answered YES to any of these questions then there is a HIGH chance that your metabolism is damaged.

But the question is: 

What can you do about it?

if you've read about the biggest loser study recently you're probably really depressed.

Why?

Lucky for you that turns out to be COMPLETELY WRONG. So don't worry!

I'm going to explain what YOU can do about your metabolism to heal it and start losing weight...​

But also, what kind of thyroid medication and dosing it takes to get there.

How to Find Out if your Free T4 is Really in the Normal Range: Why High Levels aren’t Necessarily a Good Thing

Chances are VERY high that your Free T4 level isn't actually normal even though it may be in the "normal range".

Most people tend to blow off the Free T4 level because it isn't the 'free and active' hormone like T3.

But that is a big mistake!

Free T4 still has a story to tell and it's not something you want to miss out on.

For instance, your Free T4 level can actually help you determine how efficient your thyroid is converting T4 into T3 and may explain why you have a "low" TSH when you still feel like crap. ​

​In this article I'm going to help you understand what your Free T4 level means and teach you how to determine if it is really in the "normal range"...

Or why you feel terrible with "normal" lab tests...​

The crazy part is that most Doctors don't even order Reverse T3 and even if they do most don't know what to do with it.
