THE APPLICATION PHASE OF THIS STUDY IS NOW CLOSED. YOU CAN HOWEVER ALWAYS BOOK CONSULTATIONS WITH THE HOMEOPATHS AS A REGULAR PATIENT.

Homeopaths involved with the study:

Sally Lloyd [UK, & internationally via video call]
Ingefleur Spreij [The Netherlands, & internationally via video call]
Alan Freestone [Birmingham UK, submitting past cases & taking cases at full fees.]

Both Sally & Ingefleur have experience with adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism.
Register with Sally if you are also struggling with anxiety, in particular.
Register with Ingefleur if you are also struggling with fertility.

We are an international team of homeopaths investigating treatment of adrenal fatigue& hypothyroidism through homeopathy.

Our aims:

  • To improve knowledge about which adrenal fatigue & hypothyroid cases respond well to homeopathic treatment.
  • To be able to offer more accurate prognoses to patients &
  • To find ways to further improve outcomes.

Questions the study will attempt to answer:

  • Is there a key difference in outcomes between ‘autoimmune’ hypothyroidism and cases related to generalised hormone imbalance and adrenal fatigue?
  • Is the time since diagnosis of hypothyroidism important?
  • Is the presence of antibodies (autoimmune type hypothyroidism) a significant factor in prognosis?
  • Are reproductive cycle abnormalities associated with most or all adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid cases, and how readily do they always improve with homeopathic treatment?
  • Are there connections with prior infectious diseases like mononucleosis.

 

How to proceed:

  1. Register with Ingefleur or Sally (orange links above).  This involves a 15 minute intake appointment by video call.  The call and the appointment are free.
  2. Meanwhile … read the blog posts on this webpage.  They are full of important information about what to expect, what to avoid, etc.
  3. Book an AFHT Study 1st consultation appointment.
    1. Use the calendly link for your study homeopath to book as you will receive email reminders and a list of preparatory actions, with links.
      For Ingefleur
      For Sally
    2. Wean yourself off coffee, caffeinated drinks (tea is fine) & coffee in puddings. This is a long term adjustment as coffee can disrupt the treatment and is a strong enough stimulant that it can reverse the good effects of your treatment due to overstimulation.   You can find Swiss water method decaffeinated coffee (not decaffeinated using chemicals), but some people antidote with the low levels of caffeine remaining.
    3. Stop taking any herbal supplements you use.  Discuss vitamins and minerals you take with your study homeopath.
    4. Know your medical history and gather your test results.
    5. Fill in the pre-treatment questionnaire sent to you in your booking confirmation email.
  4. Have a 1-1.5 hour 1st consultation.
    1. Please send any results you have from blood tests, etc.
    2. You are not required by the study to have blood tests or any other kind of test at any point, but you are encouraged to continue any monitoring or review processes you usually have with your doctor, or wish to have.
    3. Remain on your thyroid medication until, you decide you need to lower the dose or stop the medication.  We recommend that you make this decision with your doctor.
    4. Be sure to keep visible a list of hyperthyroid symptoms your study homeopath will give you.
  5. Have follow up consultations.
    1. The study asks for a commitment to 5 of these.
    2. They are held with your study homeopath monthly
    3. You may decide to continue following up after 5 months and your study homeopath may agree to keep your follow up fee at the discounted rate.
