Who is Dr. Ray Peat?

Dr. Ray Peat is an American researcher and health expert.

He has a Ph.D. in biology and for more than 40 years he has researched the interactions between diet, hormones, and health.

The key notion of Dr. Ray Peat is that the gap between the body’s energy resources and the demands places on it from the environment creates disease. 

In hypothyroidism, the cells of the body are not producing enough energy. The low energy state makes the body unable to meet the demands placed on it from the environment. 

In the low cellular energy state, the body loses structure and function and let harmful degenerative processes occur.

Thus low thyroid function has devastating consequences for the body, creating many different symptoms including inflammatory and degenerative processes. 

The Ray Peat health method aims at shifting your body to a high-energy state with good thyroid function and healthy hormonal balance, where repair and healing can take place. 

Our Hypothyroid Treatment Program teaches you about the Ray Peat health method in detail. 

Ray Peat diet?

According to Dr. Ray Peat, the normal western diet includes foods that directly suppress thyroid function and cellular energy production.

The principle of the Ray Peat diet is to base your daily nutrition on thyroid-supporting foods and eliminate foods that directly inhibit cellular energy production, thereby your thyroid function is increased and your body is strengthened.  

In our Hypothyroid Treatment Program, you can read about all of Dr. Ray Peat’s diet recommendations in detail. 

You can also get a short overview of the Ray Peat diet in our Diet Plan.

The Thyroid Diet Guides provide further diet information.

Nutritional supplements?

Certain nutritional supplements including vitamins, minerals, herbs, and probiotics can be added to further help your thyroid recovery.

Our supplement recommendations are based on the research of Dr. Ray Peat. 

The Hypothyroid Treatment Program gives some information on important aspects of nutritional supplements, in addition, our Supplements Guide helps you use useful supplements.

Thyroid replacement?

Using the right kind of thyroid replacement therapy can significantly help restore thyroid function. 

Most people diagnosed with hypothyroidism are prescribed Levothyroxine (T4). 

However, it is important to remember that the human thyroid gland produces two thyroid hormones T4 and T3.

According to Dr. Ray Peat, it is very important to use a combination therapy of both T4 and T3 to simulate the natural thyroid gland. 

We do not prescribe medication but our Thyroid Medication Guide provides information about the best types of prescription thyroid drugs.

Our Thyroid Supplement Guide gives you information on reliable brands of over-the-counter thyroid support supplements, which can be very helpful if you do not have a prescription for thyroid.

Hormonal support supplements

Dr. Ray Peat uses hormonal support in the form of natural progesterone and pregnenolone.

These hormones are produced in our body as part of our anti-aging and anti-stress systems.

The levels of these hormones decrease with age and can become deficient in situations of stress, inflammation, and sickness such as hypothyroidism. 

Progesterone and pregnenolone supplements can provide great relief for people with estrogen dominance and high levels of stress hormones

In our Hypothyroid Treatment Program, you can learn more about the symptoms of low pregnenolone and progesterone, as well as how you can support your synthesis of these hormones.

In our Hormonal Support Guide, you will get product recommendations for pregnenolone and progesterone as well as detailed information on how you use these supplements. 

Nutritional & Metabolic Counseling

Using Ray Peat’s health method is not always straightforward, and working privately with our thyroid specialist Benedicte Mai Lerche MSC Ph.D. in video sessions is very helpful. 

Changing your diet to promote your thyroid function can sometimes be tricky and individual adjustments are often necessary.

Taking thyroid replacement is not a do-it-yourself project. Your body can react negatively if you do not use thyroid replacement therapy the right way.

You should have a knowledgeable counselor to help you create a specialized thyroid treatment program for you. 

Please keep in mind that even if you have been able to successfully resolve your thyroid problem with the Ray Peat Health method, you possibly still have periodic issues and diet and supplements adjustments often need to be made as your body starts healing and your metabolism increases.

Therefore using our video counseling services is strongly recommended. 

You can purchase a single counseling session or a counseling subscription.
