I had a thyroidectomy after diagnosed with thyroid cancer and now have to take levothyroxine for life. i hate being dependant on them, and i know there's a more natural pill called Armour, but is there another way? i heard of someone eating small pieces of buffalo thyroid. i may be asking the wrong group but i cant find info anywhere

The main problem with eating pieces of buffalo thyroid is not being able to titrate the dose. How would you know if you're getting a subtherapeutic level or overdosing? The medication is relatively inexpensive (compared to a lot of prescription meds) and comes in many different strengths. Levothyroxine or Armour, if it were me I'd just take the med.

Yep, but prescription dessicated thyroid is available - Google "armour thyroid". Answered before you added the additional comments.
The problem with sourcing your own thyroid supplements is that you'll likely induce hyperthyroidism by overdosing on it. Google 'Hamburger Hyperthroidism'.
