Important books for a better life with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Here I would like to introduce some books that are considered mandatory reading for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. In order to be able to live with this disease and get it under control as well as possible, you should always have the basic informations at hand and understand the processes in the body.

Since the Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is often associated with comorbidities such as adrenal fatigue, I also have compiled a few book tips on appropriate topics here.

These books in my opinion are the most informative ones and helped me a lot. Especially with the dosage of natural thyroid hormones, the treatment of adrenal fatigue and HPU, these books were effective helpers.

But I will also recommend a few books about the intestine in the future, as this topic is unfortunately usually left out by doctors and patients, but is often the cause of many problems with autoimmune diseases.

Stop the Thyroid Madness

“For the Thyroid Gland- Against Stubbornness – Stop the Thyroid Madness! A patient revolt against decades of deficient thyroid therapy” is a well-known and much-loved patient self-help book for patients dealing with the scandalous thyroid treatment worldwide for more than 50 years

Excerpt from the content:

based on an exclusive T4 substitution, such as Synthroid and other mono preparations, as well as the TSH laboratory test, both guilty of missing diagnosis or lack of treatment from millions of people worldwide. “

The book explains in detail:

  1. Which drugs are far more effective and why?
  2. Which laboratory tests are more meaningful to others, and how the results are to be read (eg it is not sufficient to be “within the normal range”)
  3. How poor medical treatment in a large amount of patients results to adrenal fatigue, and which treatment methods the patients could learn for themselves
  4. A long list of possible causes for hypothyroidism
  5. An innovative treatment option for Hashimoto and gluten intolerance
  6. Why patients need to know about reverse T3 and how to handle it
  7. How to discover and treat low levels of vitamin D, B12, as well as iodine, ferritin and iron levels, and also other deficiencies that could be missed by physicians.

This “bible of thyroid treatment”, as confirmed by patients who already have transposed the information delivered around the world, has its goal as always to provide the reader with knowledge, so that he carries this additional information, which can put an end to the scandal, in the medical practices worldwide and thus brings the long overdue change.

Hashimoto Root Cause

of Izabella Wentz

Hashimoto Root Cause

Excerpt from the content:

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is more than just a simple hypofunction of the thyroid gland. In addition to “typical” symptoms such as weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and constipation, most Hashimoto patients suffer from acid reflux, nutritional deficiency, anemia, a barrier disorder of the intestinal mucosa (called “leaky gut syndrome“), food intolerances, gingivitis and hypoglycemia.

The body is stuck in a vicious circle of overloaded immune systems, weakened adrenal function, miscolonisation of the intestine, indigestion, inflammatory processes and thyroid hormone deficiency. This circulatory system preserves itself and leads to more and more symptoms until it is stopped by appropriate procedures (which go beyond the intake of thyroid hormones).

The changes in lifestyle recommended here – from dietary change to acupuncture and reduced exposure to environmental toxins – are aimed at breaking the vicious circle bit by bit.

By identifying and eliminating the individual triggers, the immune system regains its natural balance and the body finally can recover.

Why do i have Thyroid Symptoms

by Datas Kharrazian

Why do i have thyroid symptoms

Excerpt from the content:

Why are many patients with hypothyroidism or Hashimoto feeling bad, even though their thyroid levels are within normal limits? That’s exactly what Dr. Datis Kharrazian explain to sufferers and physicians: The cause of hypothyroidism does not necessarily have to be a diseased thyroid gland.

For about half of all hypofunction patients, the therapy with hormones is not the optimal way: Often other causes are the triggers for the impaired thyroid function and not the organ itself. Although the frequently prescribed thyroid hormones can normalize the levels in the blood, they do not cure the root cause that led to this problem.

Some people are feeling better with thyroid hormones, but for many others this improvement is, if ever, short-term – even when blood levels are normal. So why do many patients with normal values ​​still feel bad? Dr. Kharrazian goes in search of the causes underlying the thyroid disorder, rather than just the superficial symptoms to treat.

His tried and tested therapy concept addresses the “hidden” causes. These include a disturbed immune function, problems in the blood sugar metabolism, intestinal infections, adrenal fatigue and hormone fluctuations. On the basis of specific laboratory parameters, he has created 22 different profiles which provide information about the actual reason for hypothyroidism. Do you suspect you are suffering from hypothyroidism?

Then let your doctor measure the lab values, pooled by Dr. med. Detect Kharrazian, ​​and look up the book to see what pattern your blood counts correspond to. The 22 profiles help you to derive the cause of your symptoms and to determine the appropriate therapeutic approach. Often a change of lifestyle or nutrition already helps, that the thyroid gland can recover and work normally.

The result: not only the symptoms improve, but the patients are really healthy! This enlightening book is aimed at those affected as well as at interested doctors and therapists.

Living well with Hypothyroidism

Living well with Hypothyroidism

Excerpt from the content:

Fatigue, weight problems, hair loss, and depression can be signs of a thyroid dysfunction, but often are not recognized as such. Therefore, many people live with the thyroid hyper- or hypo-function for years, without knowing it and without being treated properly.

Mary J. Shomon, herself a long-suffering thyroid patient, has written a painstakingly researched, up-to-date handbook for affected people, that provides comprehensive and easy-to-understand information on the disease, its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. It objectively presents the opportunities and risks of traditional medicine and alternative methods, and answers the most frequently asked questions from patients.

The handbook also shows what people need to know when dealing with doctors, what to look out for in children or expectant mothers, and where to find further help and information on the internet and at counseling centers.

Adrenal Fatigue – The 21st Century Stress Syndrome

by James L. Wilson

Adrenal Fatigue - Stress Syndrome

Excerpt from the content:

Stress is part of life, and our body is prepared for it. Our adrenal glands produce messenger substances that enable us to respond quickly – fighting or fleeing – in the short term. But our body is not built for long-term stress. Therefore, it is common today for the adrenal glands to be overstrained. Typical symptoms include constant fatigue, exhaustion and lethargy.

Millions of people suffer from undetected adrenal fatigue. This book describes the problem and gives many tips on how it is curable with proper nutrition, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplements.

Dr. James Wilson is a Doctor with three different doctoral degrees, in Nutritional Science, Chiropractic and Naturopathy. He has been running his own practice for more than 25 years. He gives lectures for other physicians for more than 10 years and is recognized as adrenal specialist, and expert in glandular functions and their health impact. His research on the adrenal gland has led to a new understanding of their complex interactions in the human organism and to new treatment options. Dr. Wilson lives in Tucson, Arizona.
