herbsI just found out this natural therapy for hypothyroidism. When I found this I was so curious because it includes Hashimoto’s disease which I have, so I bought it. So here’s my review for “The Hypothyroidism Solution” by Duncan Capicchiano, ND.
For most of us, the price for the Hypothyroidism Revolution (which I highly recommend for those who have underactive thyroid) is too high.
So I have been searching for proven natural hypothyroidism treatment plan that is more affordable. I also want my visitors to have available choices on what product that they want to have.
“The Hypothyroidism Solution” Review: Main eBook (PDF)
I purchased “The Hypothyroidism Solution” eBook for $37.
The ebook, in pdf format, has 13 chapters and 100 pages.
It is authored by Dr. Duncan Capicchiano, ND.
I’m going through the chapters and give you a brief overview of each chapter so that you will have an idea what’s in the ebook and what to expect.
Chapter 1 – Let’s Open the Hood
Dr. Duncan talks about what is hypothyroidism, types of hypothyroidism, thyroid hormones, symptoms of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and its causes.
He is giving education to the hypothyroid sufferer for better understanding.
Chapter 2 – Test and Solve
In this chapter you will be able to find out: “How do you now if you have hypothyroidism?”
Dr. Duncan discusses 3 necessary blood tests so that you can request your doctor that you need the 3 tests. Unfortunately, doctors will only do 1 blood test. So you will need to tell your doctor that you need the other 2 blood tests.
He also includes the Thyroid Tests table so that you will know what does it mean when you receive the result of the blood tests.
He also included other crucial blood tests that your doctor doesn’t know about it.
You will also find 2 other blood tests that will help you to determine if your hypothyroidism is caused by an auto-immune condition. This condition is known as Hashimoto Disease.
Duncan also includes suggestions so that you can get accurate blood tests. Getting an inaccurate test is possible.
Chapter 3 – The Western Model
Duncan discusses about how the Western doctors treat the hypothyroidism — of course, with drugs. He also listed the side effects from using these drugs for treating hypothyroidism.
He also mentions the use of desiccated thyroid gland as the ‘other option’ that people consider it as a superior one. But he believes there is a better way of treating hypothyroidism…
Chapter 4 – The Natural Way
Duncan discusses the causes of hypothyroidism that medical doctors don’t have a clue. He lists the causes of hypothyroidism.
He also included list of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that help the thyroid hormones.
Chapter 5 – The Thyroid Support Squad
The Hypothyroidism Solution support squad is composed of the following: nutrition and herbal medicine.
Duncan discusses the importance of nutrition – which is the basic building blocks of life.
He specifically lists different minerals and vitamins for thyroid health. He also mentions that iodine helps a lot. In this chapter, his list includes 13 vitamins and minerals with therapeutic dosages, thyroid benefits, sources and facts.
He is urging the patient to eat a variety of foods rich in natural organic compounds such as vitamins and minerals which you can get from fruits and vegetables.
B. Herbal Medicine
Duncan also lists herbs that will benefit in helping the thyroid. He also includes other names of the herbs, part used, actions, dosage, cautions and contraindications.
Chapter 6 — The Treatment Plan “Bringing It All Together”
This chapter of The Hypothyroidism Solution covers the 2 Natural Treatment Plans:
- Hypothyroidism Treatment Plan
- Hashimoto Disease Treatment Plan
Each of the plan mentioned above has the following series of phases:
- Phase 0 (Ground Zero) – The Cleanse
- Phase 1
- Phase 2
- Phase 3
- Phase 4
Phase 0 – Preparation Phase
We are all surrounded with toxins.
In Phase 0, Duncan recommends the patient to begin the treatment with detox or cleanse.
When your body is clean it can really absorb the nutrition from the vitamins, minerals and herbs that you are going to take for hypothyroidism treatment.
Phase 0 – 2 Detox Plans:
You will find 2 detox plans in his ebook. But which one is right for you?
- The 9-Day Cleansing Diet – This is for those who have no auto-immune condition. This is best to start on a weekend which you have 2 days in a row at home where you can stay relax.
- Integrative Detox Protocol – This is for those who have Hashimoto Disease
1. The 9-day Cleansing Diet- Quick Overview
This cleansing diet includes food ideas what to eat, and plus recipes.
Of course, there is a list of foods that you have to avoid during the cleansing or detox.
A way to relax is also included and other optional extras to help your liver.
2. Integrative Detox Protocol – Quick Overview
As what I have mentioned earlier, this cleansing is for those who have Hashimoto disease — immune dysregulation. You will be cleansing the parasites with the use of herbal formulas that Duncan suggests.
Duncan recommends 4-week treatment with this detox for cleansing the parasites. But he does recommend to have alongside the 9-day Cleansing Diet.
If you will get discomfort you need to increase your water intake.
But if it’s too much for your body, Duncan’s advice is to stop the cleanse at once.
Phases: 1 – 4
Each phase of treatment has duration.
Duncan recommends vitamins, minerals and herbs for each phase to strengthen the thyroid gland and also for solving other health problems that are causing the hypothyroidism or Hashimoto.
And he also gives a list of resources where to obtain the supplements.
Chapter 7 – The Foundations
This chapter is very short – it has only 1 page.
Duncan mentions the 4 main foundational pillars for treating the thyroid:

My Final Thoughts and Comments
I do like the Hypothyroidism Solution by Duncan because it also covers Hashimoto Disease.
But I hate the detox or cleansing part — this will really make me sick. But Dr. Duncan says that it can be customized. I really have no idea how to customize it.
The supplements that Dr. Duncan recommends for you to take do not include any desiccated thyroid gland from animals. If you are a vegan or vegetarian this might be perfect for you.
But Dr. Duncan’s Hypothyroidism Solution recipes in his cookbook and also in the main ebook do call for animal products. But he has noted for vegetarians to substitute the animal products with suitable vegetarian alternatives such as: tempeh, tofu, eggs etc.
Dr. Duncan also noted to the readers that they don’t need to buy each and every supplement that he recommends. He explains that if you find a supplement formula with 2 or 3 supplements from his recommendations, you can use that formula instead.
In his list of supplements he doesn’t mention what brand to buy but he has a separate list of reputable supplement companies. I found this time consuming because I have to search which brand to buy that has no fillers. Supplements with fillers disrupt your thyroid.
With Hypothyroidism Revolution supplement plan the supplements are available from Tom’s company. His supplements have no fillers.
What I like about the Hypothyroidism Revolution by Tom Brimeyer is the 60 Daily Guide — because I know exactly what I need to do daily. But it is not designed specifically for people with Hashimoto’s.
But the Hypothyroidism Revolution hormonal supplements have been helping me tremendously. It has given me a quality of life that makes my living better before I had tried the plan.
For my Hashimoto healing I follow Dr. Isabella Wentz’ protocol. There’s no detox. She says that detox is very stressful for people with Hashimoto. I love everything in her plan for treating Hashimoto but it involves so many lab tests; and it is very costly too. But it’s worth it.
The problem that I have been dealing with Hashimoto’s is the eczema on my face. I was so concerned because it was not healing. When I started following Dr. Isabella’s liver support using the recipes and lemon beverage — it’s starting to heal and fading.
Hope my review for “The Hypothyroidism Solution” helps you in your search for healing your thyroid naturally.
