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.

Very helpful for me.
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.
"very informative and interesting. Excellent read!"
You'll learn about how many doctors misread Thyroid lab values & say patient is fine.
"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!
So much information all in one place!
Very detailed and comprehensive!
Exceedingly helpful & informative!
"The Thyroid Connection"
Filled with lot's of great and specific information to help solve your thyroid and health problems. I would definitely recommend.
