I was sent this article by a patient and thought it was a really nice article after I read it. It is written by a patient advocate-unassociated with Bomamed, with some great insight.
Her point is that there may be some wonderful options to consider if you have thyroid problems that are not severe.
She also underscores the importance of not self supplementing! This is advice that I very much agree with, as I have seen people get into a lot of trouble doing this.
Having professional guidance with your healthcare challenges is really important. I have seen many people actually cause themselves chronic illness because of self supplementation.
In any case, check out this article, it is a nice one: http://thyroid.about.com/b/2006/11/09/can-your-hypothyroidism-be-treated...
