Editorial Reviews

Review

“Reading BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT feels like you’re out with your best girlfriends.” (Austin MD Magazine)

“A must read. This book has given me and my husband clarity about the complications I experienced in the years following my total thyroidectomy. Gena Lee Nolin’s brave journey provides a great sense of support, and will be life changing for so many.” (Nancy Valen, actor and television producer and Nels Van Patten, actor and professional tennis player)

“An honest and inspiring journey of real advocacy that will help others delve into their own health and wellness, and that exposes the true meaning of beauty. Bravo!" (Rachel Hunter)

“Gena Lee Nolin is better than ever in her new book. Always a selfless giver of good health. As God has blessed her, she opens her heart in the pages of this book to be a blessing to us all!” (Stephen Baldwin)

Praise for Living Well With Hypothyroidism by Mary Shomon

"In this first-rate book by Mary Shomon...the disorder, its myths, and medicine's successes and failures at dealing with it are thoroughly examined. This is not a book that rehashes old facts on thyroid disease. Shomon instead challenges patients and their doctors to look deeper and try harder to resolve the complicated symptoms of hypothyroidism." (Los Angeles Times)

"If I could recommend only one book on thyroid problems for my patients, this would be it." (Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.)

"Vital for hypothryoid patients who want to get well, and for physicians who want to do so." (Dr. John Lowe)

My wife and I just read your book, and found it to be both informative and insightful to the many who suffer with thyroid illness. Hope to see you in NYC soon and thanks for that acknowledgement in the book. I am happy to promote thyroid sexy or anything else that you partake in that is anywhere near this profound. Baldwin family is proud of you GLN!
Best,
AB

I've had thyroid disease for 15 years. I hate the eye rolls you get when you are fat feign ugly, and HAPPEN to mention you have thyroid disease. It's not an excuse, it's a cause of a lot of problems. We 're always seen as the "People of Walmart" not the stars of Baywatch.

Finding out someone like Gina, a gorgeous, shapely, and successful actress, is struggling with and overcoming the same things I am has been eye opening, and gives me a sliver of hope. I enjoyed looking at life with thyroid disease from the point of view of a Hollywood insider. Not all thyroid patients are created in the same mold. Cannot wait to put her hints and tips to use!

Mary Shomon's new book is clear and concise...just like the in-person seminars I have attended. Her information is always a reminder of how we have to be pro-active, especially when we're talking about our health. Nice to see her working with Ms. Nolin to keep spreading the word.

I was all excited to get this book. It is an easy read considering the medical information it is dealing with but halfway through the book I just really didn't like Gena Nolin personally. I am a thyroid cancer survivor and have been successfully dealing with thyroid issues for the past 13 years. I honestly learned nothing new from this book and find the author quite biased in some of her views and very shallow and limited when it comes to talking about some serious thyroid issues. Gena glosses over many serious subjects and there just isn't any depth to her knowledge. A truly caring thryoid patient advocate would not push her thyroid website available November 1st with a monthly charge of $4.99. In my opinion, Gena Nolin is all about Gena Nolin and my impressions of her while reading the book turned out to be based on fact when I see how she is handling her recent fame by capitalizing on it and making further victims out of thyroid patients who seek quality medical care and answers by charging them $4.99 for information that she is basically getting from other experts in the field, especially after a person makes the investment of buying her much-hyped book. Gena Nolin is an actress and is using her looks and medical history to make money. Thankfully there is a wealth of free information out there for new and existing thryoid patients who really do need answers. Borrow this book from the library or if you really want I will send you my copy. I am sorry I spent the money on this author.

Not really any diff than the other books. Wasted my money. Other than the bio part, I did not learn anything that is not free on the web already.

I have Hashimoto's and I found this book boring and I was not impressed. Almost half the book was about her life (yawn). There was nothing new here. Just doesn't compare to the 3 books that I think are GREAT on the subject of hypothyroidism: Stop the Thyroid Madness, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause by Izabella Wentz, and Why do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms by Kharrazian.

This book was nothing of what I expected. Everything I read in this book, I have read on facebook, google or Mary Shomon's websties. There was a little about Gena's story. I expected real candid pictures like they made it seem they were going to show, when she was "quote" overweight from the disease. Every image in the book she looked pristine like a movie star. Of course it's nice to know that "celebrities" are starting to speak out about the illness, but that seems to be happening more. Also, you would have to make her salary to pay for all the blood tests and supplements they recommend. Which I certainly don't! Most of us don't! So if you've learned absolutely nothing about thryoid disease, this book is ok. If you have done research and read other information... it's just, eh. I was really expecting a lot more out of this book, I was somewhat disappointed.

Buy this book (which is rehashed information you can find from truly "comprehensive" thyroid books - or anywhere online). Next, go to the website and pay for "exclusive" information. Same story, different author.

It's unfortunate (if not brilliant) that GLN has capitalized on a population desperate for information and attention. I've watched this cultivate over the last year or so and must say that I am truly disappointed. GLN has struck gold at our expense. A true advocate would never shrug at a magazine cover claiming she's found a "cure" for this disease. A true advocate would not use her story and her fame as an opportunity to make money off the people she is "claiming" to help.

"Thyroid Sexy?" No thank you. I will get my information elsewhere from now on.
