The Underactive Thyroid

Craig Robinson, Dr Sarah Myhill

From: £10.99

Hypothyroidism is one of the commonest yet the worst treated condition in Western medicine. Why? Because today’s doctor only treats blood tests, not patients, even though patients may have all the classic signs and symptoms – tired, cold, thinning hair, low mood, high cholesterol. Dr Myhill, supported by Craig Robinson, shows us what those signs and symptoms are, all stemming from the metabolism running slow, and what the problems with diagnostic blood tests are that mean they cannot be relied on in isolation. Advocating lifestyle measures, iodine and natural glandulars (NGs), where found to be necessary, the authors also show us the consequences of untreated hypothyroidism at every stage of life and why it is so important to take remedying the problem safely into your own hands if your doctor can’t give you the support you need.
