Product description

Review

"Provides patients with an invaluable resource that they can rely on at every stage of their journey to greater health . . . should be considered mandatory reading for anyone diagnosed with this serious medical condition."

--Helen Dumont, reviewer "Midwest Book Review ("MBR Bookwatch") "

"Anyone gaining weight or feeling fatigue or muscle or joint pain will likely to be drawn to the possibility that his or her immune system is attacking the thyroid gland. Endocrinologist [Brittany] Henderson and [co-author Allison] Futterman . . . ably describe how this walnut-sized organ should work, what tests can show about the underproduction of thyroid hormone, and how to treat this surprisingly common condition . . . follow the authors' advice to avoid potential triggers, such as highly processed foods and artificial sweeteners, and to limit caffeine and alcohol intake . . . [a] glossary helps with unfamiliar terms, and a list of resources makes this a very useful resource." --Karen Springen "Booklist (ALA) "

"This fine pair--the doctor [Brittany Henderson, MD] and the patient [co-author Allison Futterman]--have created a book that fills a gap in the full understanding of Hashimoto's Disease from two stances. By introducing the combination of medical science with patient response this fine book has finally presented the facts, the history, the diagnostic aspects, the treatment functions and the preventative concepts of thyroid function and disease. It serves as a practical and applicable guide to identifying the symptoms and the tests for and treatments of the most significant state of thyroid dysfunction-Hashimoto's Disease, an autoimmune disease that results in hypothyroidism . . . Dr. Henderson explains the function of the normal thyroid and the various forms of dysfunction of that important gland, explains the manner in which the diseases are diagnosed, and finally the treatment and management of the hypothyroidism Hashimoto's Disease produces.The facts are clearly explained with a fine set of responses from Allison as to how patients react and how to detect responses of the various medications meant to correct Hashimoto's disease. The book is at once thorough and complete yet offered in a completely accessible manner. The result? An indispensable guide for patients with the disease--and for families of patients--and for the general populace who seek to understand their body functions and prevent illness. Recommended."

--Grady Harp, top book reviewer

"[E]xtremely comprehensive, and aligning with my own views of each thyroid patient being individual, therefore requiring an individual approach. During and after reading this book, I was jealous that Dr. Henderson wasn't my doctor! It is clear to see from the outset that she is a compassionate and open-minded medical professional, which we need more of as thyroid patients, and she blends mainstream and progressive medicine practises seamlessly, which I loved . . . I don't align myself with being a cheerleader for only conventional or only functional medicine - I believe that a blend of the two tends to work best - and it's great to find a well-balanced book that practises this approach, too . . . [B]oth medical professionals and thyroid patients themselves can benefit hugely from this book, supplying them with everything they ought to know, so that more people can live well with Hashimoto's . . . Instead of promoting one treatment plan, [the authors] uphold that there is no one-size-fits-all approach but instead a need to treat each person as the individuals they truly are. The book equips the reader with so much information that is crucial to their recovery with Hashimoto's . . . [it] is down-to-earth and also crucially honest. They [Henderson and co-author Allison Futterman] guide you to finding a medical professional with the right experience and qualifications, and they remind us that not everything you read is gospel . . . Overall, this book has become my new favourite."

--Rachel Hill, Blogger "The Invisible Thyroidism (top UK-based site) "

"A comprehensive resource of information regarding thyroid disease! Dr. Henderson provides patients with a handbook for understanding the sum of the root causes, as well as the complexities of the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid hormone imbalance."

--Michelle Campeau and Denise Roguz (ThyroidChange, The United Voice of Thyroid Patients Worldwide)

"Who wouldn't want Dr. Henderson as their own doctor? Her incredibly comprehensive book blends mainstream and progressive medicine practises seamlessly, in order to inform both medical professionals and the thyroid patients themselves of everything they ought to know, so that more can live well with thyroid disease. Instead of promoting one treatment plan, Dr. Henderson upholds that there is no one-size-fits-all approach but instead a need to treat each person as the individual they truly are."

--Rachel Hill "The Invisible Hypothyroidism "
