This book is hand's down the most helpful for someone with Hashimoto's. Our medical practitioners are failing us. They don't know how to treat or manage Hashi's in ways that give us our lives back. I couldn't even find a regular doctor to give me the right tests; it was my midwife that helped me order the tests to see what was going on. The "specialists" in town just kept saying I was fine when I was so sick. If they can't throw a drug at it, they don't seem to consider it at all or have any knowledge on what to do about it.
This book explains the functions of the immune system, what happens during an autoimmune attack, how the thyroid functions, and explains in detail all the many ways our body systems work together and all the ways they fail together to create an autoimmune disease. He explains the tests that should be done to figure out specific, individual problems. He goes into nutritional support and dietary changes that must be made. And he talks about...
I read this book about three years ago. I was diagnosed with Hashitmoto's 20 years ago. For most of those years I just didn't feel well. I plodded through life and just never recovered the stamina or energy that I had before I received radioactive iodine for Graves Disease (which killed my thyroid completely) and began to take Synthroid. After having children in my mid-30's, along with some stressful life events, I totally bottomed out with debilitating adrenal fatigue. I did a lot of research online, including the Stop the Thyroid Madness website and finally found a doctor that would switch me to desiccated thyroid. I started to slowly come out of the fog. About a year later, I read this book and put into practice many of the author's suggestions, including getting tested for Celiac Disease (which I have), and using the supplements that he recommended, I am a new person. For starters I am almost 20 lbs lighter, I have more stamina, and fewer headaches than I used to. I still have to...
I have just finished reading this book. I barely made it to the end. If you have thyroid conditions go for it read it, there is some good information for the person who has just started the journey with a thyroid condition. Fair warning though: he spends a great deal of time telling you you need specific formulas that, shocker, only he sells. He also spends most of the book telling you to be gluten free, yes well for me that has been many years a done deal. And finally, he wants you to get your health care provider to help you with treatment (which is ironic because he is supposedly telling you they don't know what they are doing treating thyroid conditions)l He also wants you to request a multitude of probably very expensive tests that I know 98% of doctors will go ego and arrogant about and laugh you out of their offices. I have a hard time taking sound advice from someone who is selling their own product that they repeatedly tell you you need, telling you repeatedly that...
