While we focus a lot on direct patient experience and Stop The Thyroid Madness.  We have great respect for the work Paul Robinson has done.

Historically his focus has been on T3 only with his prior books,  Recovering with T3: My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone and The Ct3m Handbook.

On May 31st 2018 Paul is releasing a new book: The Thyroid Patient’s Manual: Recovering from Hypothyroidism from Start to Finish.  I don’t have a copy of the book as of this writing, so can’t share personal experience.

Paul has stated multiple times that T3 only should not be a first line approach.  We agree, based on all we have seen, it is much easier to have some T4 in a person treatment — but this doesn’t work out well for everyone.

For many patients, we suggest starting with: Stop the Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior Treatment 2nd Edition.

Here is pauls new book, with more info from Paul below.

The info below is what Paul shared with me about his new book:

The ‘Thyroid Patient’s Manual’

It will available on 31st May from all Internet bookseller sites, including Amazon, Barnes Noble and The Book Depository. It may well be on pre-order NOW.

A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO GETTING IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT AND GAINING SOME CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH!

The Thyroid Patient’s Manual is a practical, easy-to-read book, which provides an excellent resource for people who are trying to understand hypothyroidism. It is aimed at patients who suspect they have low thyroid hormone levels, those who have just been diagnosed and are beginning treatment and those who are on thyroid treatment already, but are still feeling ill.

This book deals with all the main thyroid hormone treatment options, including T4 (Levothyroxine), NDT (natural desiccated thyroid), T3 (Liothyronine) and all combinations.

An easy-to-grasp series of steps is presented that includes background facts on the thyroid and adrenal hormones, diagnosis of hypothyroidism and finding the right treatment for you. Importantly, all the common problems that can get in the way are also discussed, along with their solutions. It is written in a straightforward way – which is so critical to someone who feels ill.

The Thyroid Patient’s Manual gives you the tools needed to gain some control of your health, and be able to work productively with your doctor, so that you can recover your health as fast as possible.
It is also consistent with recent research studies on thyroid diagnosis and treatment. Due to this last point, the book may be helpful to open-minded doctors who wish to do the very best for their thyroid patients.

Note: This book does not replace either of the previous two books (Recovering with T3 and The CT3M Handbook), which are vital to read for those trying to use the T3 thyroid hormone safely and successfully.

Comments so far from thyroid patients who have seen pre-release copies include:

“It is the best thyroid book out there for sure!”
“The book has really helped me understand it all better.”
“I finish reading a section, and then it runs through my head, how everything connects!”
“There are a lot of thyroid books out there that people have to discover and choose. I think this is better than any of the ones I’ve read. I feel so much better informed now.”
“This is the tidy, straight to-the-point book to guide you through hypothyroidism, from what it is and how to test for it, to how to treat it. I wish I had had this when I started my Hashi’s journey.”
“I definitely think this book serves quite a large need: something concise that the brain foggy can make through in a quick enough time, to serve them when they desperately need help.”
