I'm on day 9 multi-dosing, day 4 chewing it. Today I started multi-dosing three times instead of just two. I've noticed a HUGE difference in chewing it up, and a pretty big difference in multi-dosing.
My multi-dose today was 2 grains NDT at 8 AM + 1 grain NDT at 1 PM + 1/2 grain at 4 PM. I took 2 Adrenal Support caps at 2:30 PM.
I have a feeling it's going to take a little playing around with.
I've been doing some re-reading in STTM. Janie wrote that it's important to chew it because our bodies
absorb it best. Since Armour was reformulated a few years ago with the
new coating, it's difficult for us to break down.
If I remember correctly, the new Armour coating contains vegetable oil. Given what we know about fats, that makes sense.
wrote that multi-dosing, and gradually decreasing the dose as the day
goes on, is important because it mimics what healthy thyroids do. She
also wrote that even if taking a single-dose each day works for a person, it can backfire later: it can lead to an
unhealthy thyroid which in turn can't support adrenals, and that for
someone (like me) who is fighting to regain adrenal functions,
single-dosing can really lead to spinning your wheels.
I hate to
paraphrase Janie; she writes it so much better that I do.
been doing low carb (with the goal of going no carb as soon as I can
manage it) and I feel MUCH better. In fact, I have a flourless chocolate cake waiting for me in the kitchen. :o)
