The first product line made entirely for people with thyroid disease
Thyroid Specific Formulations is the first product line made entirely to help those with thyroid disease. To understand how these are different, it helps to know the story of how they came about.
It starts with my story.
I’m Dr. Alan Christianson. I was born an unhealthy kid. My birth mom was too young to be a mom and had a lot of things working against her. I was born with mild cerebral palsy. It caused seizures and prevented me from playing sports. I was always clumsy but by adolescence, I was also obese.
I loved to read, so I started to read health books. They changed my life and inspired me to become a Naturopathic Physician.
In medical school, I connected with the mystery of thyroid disease. No one knew at the time, but this was the start of what has been called an epidemic of thyroid disease. Many types of it went on to triple in the years following the early 1990s.
I think I resonated with thyroid disease because it made me rethink things. Before I worked with thyroid patients, I felt that exercise and unprocessed foods could solve everything – they had done so much for me.
But I could no longer deny that these were not enough for those with thyroid disease. People who had it gained weight and felt awful no matter how hard they tried. It was also apparent that thyroid medications were not a magic bullet.
I’ve done my best ever since to help people find solutions. For 20 years I had a full-time thyroid-specific practice. I learned a ton from patient care and treasured just about every minute of it.
After writing several books and developing a national audience, I was in a position to rethink everything. I spent most of 2018 and 2019 revisiting all the published research on natural ways to help thyroid disease. I read thousands of papers, it was nearly a full-time job for two years.
My initial focus was on dietary approaches, but as I studied foods, I found many high-quality studies about nutraceuticals.
There are high-quality blinded and controlled studies showing that nutraceuticals can:
- Reduce thyroid antibodies
- Shrink of thyroid nodules
- Regrowth of hair
- Lower the dependence on thyroid medication
- Improve the basal metabolic rate
I also found data proving that many of the ingredients used in supplements can make things worse. The wrong ingredients can:
- Raise TSH scores
- Worsen fatigue
- Inhibit T3 production
- Cause neuralgia
- Raise thyroglobulin antibodies
In fact, one study showed that 90% of ‘thyroid support’ products are adulterated with synthetic thyroid hormones!
The ingredients that were most helpful were just not available in the right amounts or the right combinations.
It was obvious that if I wanted this information to help people, I had to make these formulations from scratch. I also realized that I needed help. I would not be able to reach enough thyroid patients on my own. To reach more people, I needed help from other practitioners.
I made each formula from the ground up. These are not ‘private labeled’ from another company. Every milligram of every ingredient is there because studies on actual people showed that it helped. Nothing helpful was left out, and nothing was added for fluff.
By doing it precisely, I was able to make these products accessible. They are cost-effective and don’t require massive numbers of pills. I don’t like games and gimmicks. I will work to support you. You’ll never have to worry about your patients finding these products at a lower price from somewhere else. Not even from me.
You also have support. TSF customers receive free training, case reviews, and Q&A sessions. You’ll be able to easily use the products from day one and you’ll have access to as much support and guidance as you wish.
I believe that it is an honor to help people recover from thyroid disease. If you’re reading this, then you are a practitioner with the same mission. Maybe thyroid disease is not your sole focus, but nonetheless, you know that your thyroid patients need special care.
I believe that you can help them live better lives. And in doing so you will be rewarded – financially and emotionally.
I’m happy that we can work together to reach more people and help them more effectively than either of us could on our own. Please know that I’ll do whatever I can to help along the way. You’re always welcome to reach out to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To your health,
Dr. Alan Christianson
