You may get worse, it depends on the cause of your hypothyroid.
The real question is why not just medicate? Its one pill a day that has virtually no side-effects. I take Synthroid and I am so much happier and healthier than when I was hypo.
For me, figuring out why I was hypo and fixing that was my goal. I almost filled my prescription, and if I hadn't figured out something to try at the same time I got the Rx, I would've filled it because I needed to be more functional than I was. Hypo can be a temporary condition, more a symptom than the root problem itself, though it _is_ a problem as well, and figuring out what's wrong, and how to fix it, has been a worthwhile project for me.
