Today I met with a Holtorf trained doctor by the name of Charlie Selzter. What I like about Charlie is the fact he talks the talk and walks the walk. He graduated summa cum laude from med-school then goes on to transform his body and becomes a winning natural bodybuilder. At one point during the appointment I mentioned how I wish I had his genetics so I could be like him. And he said he didn't have the genetics for it either, at which point I said, "No I mean the genetics to not be fatigued in my quest to be like that." In any case, I've posted a lot of my lab work on here. I have high cortisol, but I don't think that's my problem, and I think my cortisol has been high for a decade. I presented Charlie with my binder of lab work and notes, which is a ridiculous amount of information. One thing I realized is that I may be trying to do to many thing at a time. His goal was to stabilize me so that I wasn't crashing and that I wasn't fatigued. He said that since I'm sitting in his office it proves my CFS isn't as bad as it could be and that it could be mito related. Since he's a thyroid/health doctor he wanted me to try some slow release t3 to see if it could help stabilize my hypo symptoms. Personally, I have no idea what it will do, it may not work, but I'm willing to try it. I will start low at 5 mcg's and move up 5 mcg's a week. I'm also going to finally get my candida lab done, as well as all the other basics. My rt3 was high normal, and my free t3 was almost mid range (3.0), so he wanted to see both of those number change to see if symptoms got better. Personally I like the idea of trying to at least partially stabilize someone while trying to figure out their issue. I may need to try one thing at a time and then see if it works, but he was very open minded to try anything, and I think that's very important; that your doctor will work with you instead of against you.
