'The CT3M Handbook' is written to help those thyroid patients who wish to correct low cortisol problems without the use of cortisol medication. 'The CT3M Handbook' is part of the three book 'Recovering from Hypothyroidism series', and is a companion book to 'Recovering with T3'. It is recommended that 'Recovering with T3' is read first as it contains the complete T3 protocol including the basics of using CT3M.

'The CT3M Handbook' describes how the author recovered from severe low cortisol issues by developing this innovative and simple approach called the Circadian T3 Method (CT3M), which supports the body as nature intended.

Thyroid patients often have symptoms associated with low cortisol. These can include severe fatigue, low blood sugar, aches/pains, dizziness, poor response to thyroid hormones, anxiety, fluctuating body temperature, digestive upsets, allergies, nausea, and low blood pressure - to name but a few.

Thyroid hormones will not work correctly if the adrenal glands do not produce an adequate amount of cortisol. Consequently, unless any low cortisol issues are resolved, symptoms of hypothyroidism may continue to be present, even if thyroid hormone levels have been corrected.

Symptoms of low cortisol appear to be at epidemic levels among thyroid patients. The author explains why this might be and why hypocortisolism (low cortisol) can often be present when a thyroid patient is taking thyroid medication.

The Circadian T3 Method (CT3M) is an approach to using T3, or natural desiccated thyroid medications, that mimics the natural rhythm of our thyroid hormones and helps to correct cortisol levels. CT3M has been used by thousands of thyroid patients since the author first introduced it in his first book 'Recovering with T3'.

'Recovering with T3' provides a great deal of important information on using T3 correctly. Reading 'Recovering with T3' prior to reading 'The CT3M Handbook' would give any reader the best possible information. Frequently, 'Recovering with T3' is sufficient for the reader to apply the CT3M protocol.

The book has a foreword by Dr Sarah Myhill, who has this to say about it:
"It gives every thyroid patient the clues, the rules and most importantly, the confidence to identify underlying impediments to recovering their health and adjust their dosage of thyroid hormones to an individually tailored regime. Paul’s attention to detail is second to none. Furthermore, he looks outside simple hormone issues to the many other dietary and lifestyle changes, which are so important for long-term health. I would recommend this book to any patient with undiagnosed health problems or diagnosed hypothyroidism but who has failed to respond to standard mono-therapy with thyroxine."

The book was revised in 2018 to include recent research findings, although the original protocol for using it remains the same.
