'Recovering with T3' is widely recognised as being an essential guide for using the T3 thyroid hormone safely and effectively.

T3 (Liothyronine) is sometimes known by a brand name e.g. Cytomel, Cynomel, Thybon, Tertroxin, Liothyronin etc.

T3 is the synthetic version of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine, which is the biologically active thyroid hormone, converted in the body from the relatively inactive T4 (Thyroxine).

In most countries, the standard treatment for hypothyroidism is T4 (Levothyroxine or Synthroid) or, perhaps, natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) or a mixture of T4/T3. However, some thyroid patients never get well on these treatments, even though their lab tests appear ‘normal’.

We know from research that T4 has only a small effect on the body. T4 has to be converted to the biologically active thyroid hormone (T3) before it is of any real use. Some patients simply do not convert T4 well enough and they continue to have hypothyroid symptoms when on predominantly T4 treatments.

The 'Recovering with T3' book is written for those patients who are only able to recover using either T3 medication on its own or a significant amount of T3 combined with some T4 medication.

In Paul Robinson's own case T4, NDT and T4/T3 never made him well or improved his symptoms. However, he did eventually get well using T3-Only therapy!

It took the author several years to learn how to use T3 thyroid hormone replacement properly and safely. This learning has gone into the book and is what makes it so special.

'Recovering with T3' is an invaluable resource if this is the route that you need to take. Thousands of thyroid patients have bought the book and have used it to regain their health as the author did.

The 'Recovering with T3' book explains everything you would need to know about T3, including a safe and effective protocol to arrive at a dosage that works for you and relieves your symptoms.

'Recovering with T3' also includes information about the optional protocol that the author created in order to raise cortisol. A more detailed explanation of this method can be found in the companion book 'The CT3M Handbook'. However, 'Recovering with T3' should always be read first, as it contains important information needed in order to use T3 correctly.

'Recovering with T3' covers a vast amount of technical and practical information relating to T3 medication and how to use it safely in order to get well.

The book has a foreword by the late, great Dr John C. Lowe, in which he wrote: "Paul Robinson has written a book chock-full of information on T3 that is vitally important to many people. I believe that reading 'Recovering with T3 My Journey from Hypothyroidism to Good Health Using the T3 Thyroid Hormone' will be a splendid experience for thousands of people, whether clinicians, patients, patient advocates, or patients' loved ones."

'Recovering with T3' is essential reading for any patient and their doctor if they are considering the use of the T3 thyroid hormone.

The book was updated in 2018 to incorporate recent thyroid research study findings.

Together with 'The Thyroid Patient's Manual', and 'The CT3M Handbook', Paul's hypothyroidism books now form a complete series ('Recovering from Hypothyroidism series').

All of Paul Robinson's books are available from Internet booksellers, including Amazon.
