Within the chapters of this audiobook, I address this emotional symptom of an underactive thyroid gland, including descriptions of how it manifests and how hypothyroid patients can deal with it and have it treated successfully to regain an improved quality of life. I will also include medical research study quotes, found on the U.S. National Insitutes of Health medical research information website (PubMed), which allows reprints for public education purposes.
Hyperthyroidism is a term that simply means a person has developed an overactive thyroid gland. The metabolism of a person with hyperthyroidism is sped up from too much thyroid hormone in their system, so that everything in the body is running at overdrive. When this happens, the person will experience hyperthyroid symptoms. The vast majority of people with hyperthyroidism (95%) experience Graves' disease as the cause.
In this eBook (approximately 4,121 words in length), I have endeavored to inform the reader with all of the basics regarding hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, including causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatments for each.
Thyroid disease patients can experience a number of different complications as a result of their hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid) conditions. Two of these complications are nerve pain and dysfunction, referred to as "peripheral neuropathy" and muscle weakness with possible atrophy (shrinkage of muscles), referred to as "thyroid myopathy".
Beginning in my teen years, I experienced intermittent panic attacks. Previous to this, I suffered prolonged episodes of free-floating anxiety (generalized worry and anxiousness). During my twenties, I found coping skills for my anxiety that were mostly self-taught, although I had seen mental health counselors for short periods of time in my late teens. These sessions were scheduled by my parents; during times I seemed to be lacking the ability to cope as I should, following major events, such as relocating to new schools.
Within the chapters of this book, I wish to point out some of the central beliefs and historical characteristics of both the Catholic and Evangelical Christian churches. I will keep my discussion centered on major doctrines of each, due to the fact that both churches have a number of variations within their denominations and it would take literally volumes to go through each of these. It is my hope that none of my discussions that follow are perceived as an attack on either Catholics or Protestants because that is certainly not my intention.
As the title of this audiobook denotes, Old Earth Creationism, which is the view held by creationists who believe that the earth may be extremely old, is being attacked not only by atheists and evolutionists, but also by those of the Young Earth Creationism view. Within the chapters of this book, I discuss reasons for seeing biblical substantiation and confirmation for an ancient earth, that has possibly existed for many eons of ages and that predates the creation of Adam and his domain (the current dispensation), by possibly millions or even billions of years.
Over 100 types of PN have been identified, according to medical research organizations. This demonstrates the fact that each person will experience the physical results of damaged or diseased nerves, differently than do their fellow patients. Some people feel more of the burning sensation while others may feel very strong tingling that literally feels as if a colony of ants are stinging them simultaneously on their feet and/or legs. Some PN patients are affected exclusively within their feet and they may experience not only tingling and burning sensations within them but they may also feel stabbing pains as well.
While it might seem unusual to see a book title on the subject of offering Christian encouragement to thyroid patients, it really shouldn't be considered unusual at all. Statistics by reputable polling organizations have shown that 75% of the U.S. population claims to be of the Christian faith and some medical estimates have revealed that over 30-million Americans are experiencing thyroid diseases.
Prophecy is one of the most interesting and intriguing subjects in the Holy Bible. Jesus Christ fulfilled 100s of specific and detailed prophecies at his first coming and during his ministry on earth. The scriptures also give 100s of other detailed prophecies concerning the future second coming of Christ. The future of Christians and the future destiny of the world in-general are covered in these prophecies in amazing detail as well.
I sincerely believe it is extremely important for legitimately disabled Americans to be cared for in a country that takes pride in helping those who are less-fortunate - not those who are looking for a free ride or for a chance to scam the system but who are truly and sincerely in need. There are policies practiced or enforced by the social security disability program for example that cause deserving applicants to be denied (the main subject of this audiobook) and in some cases, less-deserving or undeserving applicants to be accepted by the same benefits program.
"A little helpful??"
Some Statistics including those by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) state that up to 25-million Americans suffer from asthma. That's approximately 1 in every 12 people or about 8.2 percent of the U.S. population. Asthma is more common in women than in men and is also more common among African Americans and Hispanics than in Caucasians.
Anxiety conditions are the most common of all emotional disorders and affect millions of people in the U.S. and worldwide. One of the most effective types of treatment for anxiety disorders is a therapy called "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy". The "Complete Look" reference in the title, is not to imply that this is an extensive medical journal but rather that the audiobook contains all aspects of information on the subject that most laypersons would be seeking. Written by a recovered anxiety sufferer this audiobook gives a detailed look at anxiety symptoms, types of anxiety disorders, and the diagnosis and treatments available for them.
Presented within the chapters of this audiobook, are some of the most intriguing scriptural studies from the Old and New Testaments, with some of them also being considered controversial doctrines. This resource is written from a Christian perspective for consideration by others who believe the Holy Bible to be inspired, revealed knowledge, given to man by God himself, through those he inspired to write, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
This audiobook is for listeners interested in natural and prescribed treatments for Adrenal Fatigue, specifically. This audiobook is compiled from articles I wrote on the subject of adrenal fatigue between the years 2005 and 2009 that contain information on conditions commonly related to the syndrome, with emphasis on treatments that are available, of both the prescribed and natural types. Included in the information is discussion on the most suspected causes for diminished adrenal gland function, resulting in symptoms.
This audiobook is a detailed look at Adrenal Fatigue symptoms, diagnosis and treatment by a fellow sufferer, who has experienced this stress-related syndrome. I, the author, have also found treatments and lifestyle change methods that have been tremendously effective in relieving my symptoms. In the year 2003, during a time I was developing autoimmune thyroid disease and going through a prolonged and severe period of stress (chronic), I experienced this very real illness that results in mildly diminished adrenal function.
This is my personal story regarding symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for autoimmune hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and other metabolic-related conditions that developed co-morbid to my thyroid disease. I also share information regarding my symptom-struggles including emotional aspects and about my difficulties in finding a doctor experienced in treating thyroid disease with related conditions attached to it.
Thyroid patients who are better educated in regard to their hormones have better ability to be proactive in their treatments and communicate with their doctors so that they receive the best possible results from their hormone replacement therapies. This audiobook is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information that is most-often sought by laypersons on the subject.
Nutritional deficiencies have increased in frequency worldwide. Even the most industrialized countries in the world are seeing more cases of deficiency in vitamins, minerals, proteins, electrolytes and other essential elements in their populations. Some of these have reached near-epidemic proportions, even in the USA (i.e. Vitamin D Deficiency).
Did you know that there are common thyroid disorders, a heart murmur, adrenal hormone imbalances and blood sugar (glucose) problems that can all potentially cause or contribute to anxiety and/or depression symptoms? It is important that patients seeing their doctors for emotional symptoms be tested for possible medical conditions that might be a causative or contributing factor, especially if physical symptoms in addition to emotional ones are being experienced.
