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 insists 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 caused by a thyroid disorder - the hidden cause of a wide array of health problems that can threaten to ruin your life. Thyroid dysfunction affects at least 20 million Americans, 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, she explains how to recognize the symptoms that could signal a thyroid problem, work with your doctor to ensure proper diagnosis, and make sure you're on the right treatment plan. Complete with a 28-day program tailored to your specific condition along with advice on diet, 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)

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.

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.

Repetitive

She repeats herself often. Making it seem like she thinks we’re stupid because she explains what each chemical does each time she talks about it. Could’ve been much shorter.

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!

Need pdf or hard copy

It’s too hard to follow and get the numbers without the book. But she does a great job encouraging and I went and changed my protocol and feel great.
