How does a person switch from Synthroid (thyroxine) to nature-throid? Just switch or is there a gradual process?

In brief: You don't

Want to switch from a quality product like synthroid (thyroxine) to "nature" thyroid, which is just ground up pig parts.
It was recently recalled, by the way. It is potentially dangerous, cannot be checked by routine thyroid lab tests, and should not be taken by humans. Is that helpful? Please don't get your health information from friends, tv or the internet.
