Herbal supplements?
Just wondering....are there any herbal supplements out there that can mimic thyroid hormones?  Maybe a stupid question but I was just thinking about it since I'm starting to feel pretty stinky being without.  Not sure if I'm getting sick or if I'm starting to feel the effects of no hormones but I feel awful today. It's been 9 days so I'm guessing the nastiness could be starting to set in.  Usually I'm so energetic and can't sit still. Now I think I'll be fine if I never move off this couch!

Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid problem, yet.  I don't think it is wise to depend on herbal supplements, but . . . L-tyrosine and liquid sea iodine are two things that are good for low thyroid, however, without a thyroid replacement medicine, you might not reach the required TSH level your body needs to maintain proper hormone levels.  I would see a doctor first and get your blood checked then discuss supplements with him.
