Dr Myer’s book is based around her twenty-eight day programme to get you back on track to good health, following a Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism diagnosis. She looks at diet, gut health, stress, supplements and more, all tailored to your situation.  Continue reading “Book Review: The Thyroid Connection by Amy Myers, MD”

Book Review: Diagnosis and Management of Hypothyroidism by Gordon R B Skinner, MD, DSc, FRCPath, FRCOG

Dr. Skinner’s book, Diagnosis and Management of Hypothyroidism, is different to other thyroid books I’ve read, since it’s aimed at other doctors and medical practitioners, as oppose to the patient. But it’s a must-read for all hypothyroid patients, all the same.IMG_9997(1).JPG

Dr. Skinner goes through the symptoms of hypothyroidism, possible causes, other conditions it can be linked to or misdiagnosed as, the management of hypothyroidism in terms of medication options and dosing and even the difficulties he has come across, as a doctor with a specialist interest and knowledge in this area. 

I’ll reference back to this book and what I’ve learnt from it throughout my blog posts. Continue reading “Book Review: Diagnosis and Management of Hypothyroidism by Gordon R B Skinner, MD, DSc, FRCPath, FRCOG”

Book Review of: Why Do I STILL Have Thyroid Symptoms? When My Lab Tests Are Normal.. by Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS

 This book explores more in-depth, what could be causing your underactive thyroid, namely Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and what has led to it. Dr Kharrazian particularly focuses on how diet and lifestyle changes could potentially reverse your condition so you no longer need thyroid medication. IMG_5922

This is a popular thyroid book.

I’ll reference back to this book and what I’ve learnt from it throughout my blog posts.

I bought this book last winter and have only just gotten round to finishing it. I’d started a few books and this one was put on the back burner whilst I finished those.

Although very scientific at times, this book is eye-opening and explores what could have started or contributed to your hypothyroidism and/or autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s, and what you could do to reverse this, so that you no longer need thyroid medication.

Book Review of: Your Thyroid and how to keep it healthy.. The Great Thyroid Scandal and How to Survive it by Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield

12743580_10209048716682228_1652071844326241495_nThis book has become my new favourite thyroid book. It’s a bit sciencey, but not too much to put me off, and is full of lots of things you need to know as a thyroid patient, but I had never read anywhere else. Most importantly, it feels honest. I felt the writer’s genuine goal to help people help themselves. 

The book covers lots of information about having a thyroid disorder, how to recognise associated problems, and how to take an active part in your own treatment.  

I’ll reference back to this book and what I’ve learnt from it throughout my blog posts.

I’ll reference back to this book and what I’ve learnt from it throughout my blog posts.
