  1. Dr Wes! They are all terrific, but I must say, I am enamored with the Hashimoto’s meals—yummy! So winderfukl of you to bring these to us–Thank you. Can’t wait ’til dessert!!!


  2. Hi…
    Thank you for the recipes.

    Thou I just received my order, haven’t opened anything. I now have to do the Dutch test. So have to stop all related hormone products. Also after ordering I was back on your sight the next day and saw your advertisement for 20% off on order placed. So what can be done about this since I had no 20%off.

    In addition, since levothyroxine does nothing for Central Hypothyroid, meaning no thyroid meds will improve your situation?

    If levothyroxine does nothing for CeH, how is it that your supplements will help? I realize you treat hypothyroid and Hashimoto’s so I believe the ones I ordered will not help at this time.

    Trying to get a clear understanding of all of this.

    Thank you.


    • Hi Cindy,

      No problem at all, just send my team an email at hello@restartmed.com and they can apply the coupon code for you. Alternatively, you can also use it on your next order if you’d prefer.

      In regards to central hypothyroidism, levothyroxine is the treatment of choice for this condition. All central hypothyroidism means is that there is pituitary failure. But pituitary failure leads to thyroid gland failure which still leads to low thyroid hormone which is why the treatment is still the same.

      Supplements are beneficial here because they support the action of thyroid hormone. It doesn’t even matter where that hormone comes from either, they can support the hormone found in thyroid medications.

      Other supplements support other tissues that then make thyroid function work more effectively like the liver, adrenals, etc.

      It doesn’t matter what thyroid condition you have, or if your thyroid has been surgically removed, there’s a place for supplements in every single case.

      As far as treatment is concerned, there is very little difference between central hypothyroidism and primary hypothyroidism.
