Publisher's summary

A Yale-trained, board-certified family physician with a specialty in women's health and obstetrics delivers a proven 28-day program to heal overwhelmed, overloaded systems and prevent and reverse the myriad of symptoms affecting the vast majority of women today.

Weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, hormonal imbalances, and autoimmune conditions - for years health practitioners have commonly viewed each as an individual health problem resulting from a patient's genetic bad luck, poor lifestyle choices, or lack of willpower. Patients, too, have turned to different doctors to alleviate their specific symptoms: an endocrinologist for a thyroid problem; a gynecologist for hormonal issues; an internist for weight, diabetes, and high blood pressure; a rheumatologist for joint problems, and even therapists or psychologists.

While these ailments may seem unrelated, Dr. Aviva Romm contends that they are intrinsically connected by what she calls survival overdrive syndrome, a condition that occurs when the body becomes overloaded. SOS can result from childhood survival patterns or adult life stressors that are compounded by foods we eat, toxins in our environment, viral infections, lack of sleep, disrupted gut microflora, and even prescribed medications.

Two of the systems most affected are the adrenal system and the thyroid, which control mood, hormones, inflammation, immunity, energy, weight, willpower, blood sugar balance, cholesterol, sleep, and a host of other bodily functions. When these systems become overwhelmed, they lead to symptoms that can develop into full-blown illnesses, including diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and heart disease - all of which have medically provable origins in SOS.

The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution explains SOS and how it impacts our bodies and can lead to illness and, more importantly, offers a drug-free cure developed through Dr. Romm's research and clinical work with tens of thousands of patients. In as little as two weeks, you can lose excess weight, discover increased energy, improve sleep, and feel better. With The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution, you can rescue your metabolism, hormones, mind, and mood - and achieve long-lasting health.

Adds great new perspective

I liked the approach of this book - take charge of your health through self care by addressing root causes - including nutrition, stress, and self kindness. I have already implemented many simple but impactful steps to improve my mental and physical well being and I have a brighter outlook - this after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism in my teens and battling brain fog, irritability, and fatigue for many years.

I will say that the narrator is clear and concise but slightly robotic. I got used to it through.

For those who said they couldn't get to the enhancement: it's available on the desktop version of audible.com. Log in, go to your library and check under the book title for the pdf. The enhancement is a GREAT recap of many topics she covered in the book and really helps with plan execution.

Enhancements Not Available

Author refers to the enhancement section of the book in each chapter, multiple times. This portion of the book is not available with Audible format which makes the book useless to follow.

A balm for an overworked soul

I'm a holistic OB/GYN and see many women who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Dr. Romm's book provides encouragement that life can be better along with clear protocols to help you achieve wholeness. I definitely recommend this book and welcome the material to improve my own health.

Without Enhancements this book is a waste.

What would have made The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution better?

If the enhancements that are mentioned repeatedly were available this book would truly help many. But without it, it is a waste of time. Great information but it is designed to teach people and then doesn't give actual information needed to change to health. Boring narrator. There is good information in the book but found myself not being able to listen for long due to monotone reader.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

NO.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Excellent audio book (use with supporting PDF doc)

Excellent audio book and I love that there is an included supporting PDF doc with resources that you can reference while listening (or at a later date). To download the PDF file that accompanies your Audible audiobook, follow these steps:
Go to "your Library" on the Audible desktop site. (On Android phone in my chrome app, I have also found I can click the check box "request desktop site" by clicking in the right hand corner for drop down options).
Find the audiobook that contains a PDF in the "Title" column and click PDF.

great new take on women's health

I haven't started the diet portion of this program yet but I'm excited to finally have some answers to some questions I've been having about my health for years. It took my awhile to figure out that if you want to look at the "enhanced version" you have to go onto the audible website and download the pdf document listed below the book in your library. It's a requirement for the book to make any sense, otherwise there are huge gaps. Hopefully this will make a difference for me and the women close to me that have been having many of the issues described.

Too Extreme

It's one of those theories that everything is toxic, from plastic bottles to none organic foods. It's really extreme and I'm sure anyone can get healthier by eliminating all toxins and eating all natural, all organic, self cooked foods without knowing any theory, so the book is pretty useless to me. There's quizzes you take and it's like if you are ever tired and overworked, you have a health issue... you are intoxicated or have an unknown thyroid problem.

Good information to help the privileged heal.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

As an Indigenous women listening to this book there is one glaring omission: recognition that it is a privilege to have access to food security. Although I can currently afford access to organic fresh fruits, veggies, and grass fed/wild meats, it wasn't always this way. There is a whole segment of the population that struggles with poor health due to stress overload for a totally different reason- Ethnostress. Dr. Romm is a wise woman, but her lack of connecting this dot reminds me that her knowledge is based in her privilege and isn't intended for bodies of colour. I will use the program and think her information is super valuable, but will have to remind myself that although she is an expert in women's health and nutrition, she is certainly not an expert in social awareness or necessarily concerned with helping those on the margins fully heal from the causes of their SOS.

Would you be willing to try another book from Aviva Romm? Why or why not?

Yes. She's well-researched

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reader was a bit robotic, and at times, it sounded like she was reading more than embodying Dr. Romm's voice.

Did The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution inspire you to do anything?

Stay on the current course I'm taking to heal from my own autoimmune issues.

Any additional comments?

As a healthcare practitioner that has taken an oath to help people heal, it is important to consider intersections of privilege such as race, class, gender, and ability in order to fully understand the root causes of illness. I recommend anyone who wants to use this book to deepen own healing practices consider taking some cultural competency/safety courses and work towards making the tools for healing accessible to all.

important information but tedious listening

I'm very interested in this subject, and the other has some good information. I think this book would be better served in hard copy though.
