    I know nothing of Dr. Lowe.

    Many many FMS patients have thyroid problems and an underacting thyroid does result in fatigue and other associated problems FMS patients have.

    If the thyroid is not functioning, it can be treated with medications.

    Will this "fix" fibromyalgia. Nope!

    Many of us have allergies, if our allergies are dealt with properly, will that "fix" fibromyalgia. Nope!

    Well you get the idea.

    Certainly anytime we can tweak an organ or system to operate better, we do feel better.

    Good Luck, Cruz.
    Fondly, June

    My doctor is following Dr. Lowe's protocol with me. I think it might be helping although I have only been on it a short time.

    If you have a sensitive doctor, he would be able to adapt the treatment to suit you. There is a patient book you can buy - I have ordered it from Amazon.com which helps explain what to do.

    Basically, the protocol has to be adapted to suit each individual, based on objective tests as well as patient feedback and it is not a quick fix. Good luck

    thanks intunejune, Aberlaine and butterfly for your responses. I agree it is much more than just thyroid (which I have been treated for 30+ years.

    I'm on 150 mcg. I was a miracle elixer in the beginning. I keep having to up the dose to feel the magic. Lots of wholistic doctors will treat you with T3. It's the cornerstone of the FFC treatment plan. I think adrenal fatigue must be addressed first.
