Your theory on thyroid is something that’s come up a lot because the receptors it can stimulate and occupy do include the thyroid, though there’s no direct evidence of that as of yet, and even on HCG my thyroid numbers didn’t change. I’m on thyroid meds including T3, and have seen some similarities there, but I don’t think it’s the thyroid itself that’s doing it so much as what T3 and HCG both trigger somewhere else, like potentially dopamine and norepinephrine and epinephrine in the adrenal glands or something. I’ve done a bunch of different things that trigger that same ‘feeling’, so it’s more likely the stimulation it provides some people like us causing something to happen. Also explains why some things that do it have a ‘tapering off’ to zero after a bit. When they’re new, they’re stimulating, then you return to baseline, similar to the honeymoon period most people have on TRT when starting. And even the actual honeymoon period in relationships.I was on TRT for a couple months and never felt any better. Then I added in HCG at a low dose every other day and started feeling incredible. The energy and mood were exactly what I was hoping TRT would do for me. Unfortunately it only lasted about a week and I was never able to get that feeling back. Fast forward a year and a half and I get prescribed thyroid meds. When I got to a dose of 1 grain of Armour and added in a little T3, I experienced the exact same feeling. I think the HCG has an effect on your thyroid production. That may not be true at all. I don’t know. But the feelings were identical and nothing else ever made me feel like that. Makes me wonder if HCG could also be used to restart a sluggish thyroid gland before getting on meds for life.
I’d love to hear some opinions on this. Please tell me if what I’m thinking is idiotic.
Doing an experiment on that pretty soon with selegiline to verify it. MAO-B inhibitor that’ll give more mileage to my dopamine and norepinephrine and epinephrine.
