Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times best seller The Autoimmune Solution, a comprehensive, accessible overview of thyroid problems that will help you learn to identify the warning signs and finally take back your health.

Are you exhausted all the time, plagued by brain fog, and unable to lose weight? Do you struggle with insomnia, panic attacks, and tremors? But does your doctor insist that your labs are normal, and that you just need to eat less and exercise more? As anyone who has been there knows, nothing is more frustrating, stressful, and emotionally draining than feeling unwell and being told you're fine by the very person who is supposed to heal you.

The truth is, your symptoms could be triggered by a thyroid disorder - the hidden cause behind a wide array of health problems that can threaten to ruin your life. Thyroid dysfunctions like Hashimoto's disease, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism affect at least 20 million Americans and yet conventional medicine frequently misses the diagnosis. The scariest part? Most doctors won't even order thyroid tests unless you specifically ask.

Now, in The Thyroid Connection, Dr. Amy Myers teaches you how to take your health into your own hands. Dr. Myers, originally misdiagnosed herself, understands the struggles of thyroid dysfunction firsthand. Fortunately, she also knows how achievable recovery and well-being are, and just how to get you there. In The Thyroid Connection, you'll discover:

  • How to work with your doctor to get the correct diagnosis
  • What blood tests to ask for, as well as what they mean
  • How to find the right type and dose of supplemental thyroid hormone for you
  • The role of gut health, diet, toxins, infections, and stress in thyroid dysfunction
  • A complete 28-day plan to jumpstart your health and reverse your thyroid symptoms

Complete with advice on diet and nutrition, supplements, exercise, stress relief, and sleep, The Thyroid Connection is the ultimate road map back to your happiest, healthiest self.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

VERY HELPFUL

If you could sum up The Thyroid Connection in three words, what would they be?

Very helpful for me.

Any additional comments?

This book is especially good for people like myself, who have debilitating symptoms of hypothyroid, and yet fall within the "normal" ranges for lab tests. She explains why the normal ranges are not useful and explains how to go about picking a thyroid supplement and dose (both pharmaceutical AND nutritional suppliment. This book is also VERY detailed on the latest research (as well as knowledge from her own clinical practice) related to autoimmunity, and foods that effect thyroid.Lastly, she also goes into a large amount of detail explaining methods of stress reduction and its importance for dealing with thyroid problems.(The book covers both hyper and hypothyroid)

everyone can benefit from this book

If you have any of the symptoms described on cover or in first few pages of the book, this book will help you. It includes not only information about how to speak to doctors and what test to ask for, but also the diet and life style changes. Recipes and food are easy to do. I've shared this book with anyone who has autoimmune,thyroid issues and even if they have had a hard time getting pregnant or after they had a baby. The lady reading has a very soothing and even toned voice. Easy to understand and listen to. thanks for this book!

Informative for brain, gut and other areas.

The plan appears in chapter 13. Shrimp is a No-No to me-too much bacteria. She sells products as well.

Raised my skeptic flags on several parts.

Might try some advices on food but this book keeps repeating Myer's way this and that almost every other sentence, plus 'you can buy multivitamins on my website' keeps resurfacing. It keeps discrediting conventional medicinal practices and promotes alternative approaches, all-organic way, taking vitamin supplements, acupuncture, etc. Raised my skeptic flags often but I will try some advices and see if they would surprise me or not.

Good info but too dull for an audio book

Great info and details but a tough listen. It would be better consumed as a book where you can highlight and review.

a must read

This is a must read for anyone suffering with unexplained symptoms. It took ten years for me to be properly diagnosed with Hashimotos. If this book had been available at that time I would have saved myself and my body a lot of pain. Dr.Myers does an amazing job explaining all the scientific details involved in thyroid disfunction with clarity and simplicity. Making it easy to understand the whole picture and giving you the power to take back your health!

Pushing meat on people??!!

Encouraging an anti inflammatory diet but then encouraging vegans to eat meat?? Take the rest of her with a pinch of salt after that advice.
