Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? was written to address the true causes of hypothyroidism in this country and how to manage them. The vast majority of hypothyroid cases are caused by Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune reaction, and are being treated inappropriately or misdiagnosed by the standard health care model. Through exhaustive research and clinical experience, Dr. Kharrazian has discovered the many causes of hypothyroidism, including autoimmunity, and how to manage it.

I have not yet finished this book, so take my review as you will. I kept having to rewind and listen to parts over again to catch everything. There is a lot of information, and while I generally prefer audio to hard copy books, I felt that I needed to have the information in writing.. I've ordered a hard copy and I think listening will be better if I can refer to earlier sections as new data is introduced.
endocrinology is very interesting, but I find it too complex for an audio book.
This is the kind of book that loses me. I get confused trying to remember all the detailed info I just read. That said, I'm listening to the audiobook and thinking " I should be taking notes! I'm never going to remember all this." Maybe if I were a doctor this would make more sense, but I feel much more prepared to have a more meaningful conversation, that makes sense, with my endocrinologist at my next appointment.
The take home I got from this book is; what I'm currently doing to manage my health isn't working, but there are other methods available. I have modified my diet after listening to this book and I am truly amazed at the improvement in my overall health.
Very comprehensive book on thyroid and how nutrition and lifestyle play a role. The narrator talked very fast, but very clearly. I had to listen to it twice and took notes.
If you are tired of adjusting medication and still have symptoms this book is for you. Even if you are not on medication, but you think you have symptoms of low thyroid, this book is for you.
I'm still not sure if the book was really read like all the others or if the narrator just went in and read some random words that someone then put into order. It sounds like a robot's voice with very bad pronunciation and really obvious cuts in the middle of a sentence. On top of this, the tempo is very fast, which I usually don't mind. But this is a highly complex topic with lots of medical terms that shouldn't have been sped up like this.
The book itself was very informative. I also bought it in paper back just because it's a great resource to have and I find it much more handy to look up stuff in a physical book than an audiobook. I'll probably not listen to it again though, just because the "narration" was so awful and distracting.
Dr Kharrazian takes a fresh new and sensible approach to problems concerning the thyroid. He explains new successful approaches and backs it up with 700 scientific references. He weaves case stories from other doctors to emphasize his point. Excellent book, great easy to read science and finally a logical approach to a problem orthodox medicine fails to successfully answer
If you have a thyroid issue you need to read this book ASAP
It covers the science and remedies
"Makes perfect sense!"
Although a lot of it baffled me (the recommended vitamins and minerals as I have never heard of them and wouldn't know where to begin getting them from) I really enjoyed listening to the book. Had I bought it to read I would have switched off, however on audible, it felt like it was being explained to me.
There are so many factors to hashimotos disease and although my lab work is saying I am being treated successfully, I still have the symptoms of hypothyroidism. This book links and demonstrates other disorders and or intolerances which either can play a part or being the root cause of the thyroid disorder.
I certainly will be reviewing my diet.
A major downside to having this on audible is the lack of chapter titles making dipping in and out of subjects harder. I recommend bookmarking chapters as you listen to them and assigning titles. I may go on yo buying the book for reference.
"GREAT, lots of information, very well narrated"
The narrator was clear, well-paced, enthusiastic - helping to maintain interest in more complex areas of the book which could have sounded very laborious given the level of detail.
I am a naturopathic nutrition student, so I bought this book to help me with an assignment and my understanding of the thyroid function, and hoped it would also relate to the rest of the body. It does! Treating the body and mind as a whole is how the author approaches thyroid problems - wonderful. He also clarifies the difference between hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's. He clarifies a number of topics which have so far remained hazy to me in my lectures. There is a LOT of detail, so I have now bought the paperback so I can refer to the 'charts' and 'solutions' on a more regular basis, to increase the solidity of the knowledge gained. Wonderful book - very happy.
His enthusiasm, energy and emphasis upon certain words is paced beautifully. I am also hard of hearing, so, the clarity and pace were appreciated further. I am not able to read books whilst driving or walking my dog, this is the benefit of audible. However, I have since bought the paperback due to the detail in the book and wanting to review it. Keith Michaels however, I will be listening to again, and am happy to listen to this book all over again - thanks to his narration.
It made me have eureka moments, where clarity and interest in a point climaxes to the moment of understanding and hopefully, will eventually become knowledge. I found myself relaying information in the book to friends and family, as it excited me to know and understand the topics in the book.
Just, GREAT book! You'll probably want to buy the paperback if you intend to act upon the recommendations within the book, to have it to refer to for test results (from the doctor) and help you if you, or someone you know, has problems with their thyroid - or rather, is showing symptoms of thyroid problems. If you are interested in nutrition also, this book will demonstrate the affect nutrition has.
