About

Hi, My name is Corri Peterson.

I am the creator of this website and I started it to help people who suffer from thyroid problems find solutions.

Here is my story:

I was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease in January 2003. Grave’s disease is an autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid. The treatment I received was Radio Active Iodine(RAI). This treatment is the #1 treatment for Grave’s disease in the U.S. My thyroid doctor told me this was the only treatment available; after the RAI treatment, he informed me he only prescribed Synthroid, so don’t even ask him about any other thyroid hormone. However, after my treatment, the brain fog, the weight gain, constantly being cold and the depression slowly increased. I was so miserable. but no one would listen. No doctor, physician’s assistant or nurse would believe me when I told them all the symptoms I still had while taking Synthroid. They acted like I was crazy! I went to 3 different doctors before I finally convinced one to write me a prescription for Armour Thyroid. My world changed in a matter of two weeks. I wasn’t as cold, less brain fog, better mood: so much of my life was better, not perfect, but better.

Those experiences lead to this website. I will share with you all the information on testing, treatments, nutrition and  supplements from the top experts in thyroid care so you too can discover the path to a happier and healthier life.
