Yes I am

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK Wendy--there is a natural preparation which I personally do use with my hypothyroid patients. It's called Armour thyroid and it's a combination of naturally occurring T3 and T4 and it's not synthetic. You can either ask your doctor about this or see an endocrinologist about it.

Let me know if you need any more information, but here's a link about it for you
