Giveaway! The Complete Thyroid Health and Diet Guide

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
One in eight women has a thyroid disorder, and many of them don't even realize they do. A smaller number of men also have a thyroid disorder. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction and contact your doctor for a simple test. This list of symptoms comes from The Complete Thyroid Health and Diet Guide, Understanding and Managing Thyroid Disease by Dr. Nikolas R. Hedberg and Danielle Cook.


Hypothyroidism (when the body produces too little thyroid hormone):
  • Unfreshing sleep, fatigue
  • Depression, anxiety
  • Weight gain, inability to lose weight, water retention
  • Dry and itchy skin, dry brittle hair, dry brittle nails
  • Hair loss, eyebrow hair thinning
  • Voice deepening, hoarse voice
  • Headaches, muscle aches, cramps
  • Cold intolerance, cold hands, cold feet
  • Low sex drive
  • Depressed immune system, chronic infections, slow wound healing
  • Constipation, digestive problems from low stomach acid
Hyperthyroidism (when the body produces too much thyroid hormone):
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Sweating at rest
  • Headaches
  • Weight loss
  • Increased appetite
  • Anxiety

Did you know that I suffer from Hypothyroidism? I was diagnosed about ten years ago by my doctor, after I complained about how tired I was all the time. My doctor did a simple blood test and then prescribed Synthroid (levothyroxine sodium tablets), which is commonly prescribed for the condition. I take one pill every day to help balance my underactive thyroid. It doesn't "fix" all my symptoms, because I still suffer from many of them, such as hair loss and the aggravating inability to lose weight, but it does synthetically balance my thyroid hormones.

The Complete Thyroid Health and Diet Guide is an invaluable resource for me. The first part of the book describes the basics of the thyroid, such as how the thyroid works, as well as information about the different ways that thyroid dysfunction can affect different parts of the body. The Guide also covers thyroid management, including information about medications, surgery, and lifestyle modifications. Most important for me, is the chapter on a Balanced Thyroid Diet, because a change in diet helps to improve many of my symptoms. This chapter is followed by an entire section of 150 Thyroid Recipes that include common ingredients that help to heal the body.

For the most part, a person cannot completely heal from a thyroid disorder, but there are many things those of us who suffer can do to manage the disorder and improve our symptoms, which in turn improves our quality of life. With nearly 400 pages of valuable information, The Complete Thyroid Health and Diet Guide is a book I reach for time and again. Visit Robert Rose Books to see their incredible line of publications!
