Customer Reviews

It's hard to take him seriously when he says he felt like running a marathon!
J. Despard
This is a really bad book--I agree with the person who said that they would give it zero stars if they could (half the book IS empty blank pages for your journaling).
Reader
It will enlighten you, give you peace and hope, and in the end, it will help your body to heal.

It's a negative suprise!
Take a look in this book at a bookstore and you will see what I mean.
Part of what you pay for is an empty diary for the reader to fill in!!!???
In a way, that can be interpreted for a fraw.
If I need paper to use as a diary, I can buy that myself!
It was a negative suprise to find that as much as 60 pages of this little thin 115 pages book is just blank or empty "diary-pages for the reader to fill in!?
So what you buy is 40 pages about a man who didn't get the right diagnos, or maybee it's more correct to say; got the wrong diagnos. His doctor didn't take all test's that needs to be taken to give a diagnos as Hashimotos.
I mean, I didn't buy this book from the US, to be sent to me in Scandinavia, just to have 60 empty pages? I thougt I bought a book with a lot of new interesting information!? Suprise! There was nothing I didn't knew since before.
Most of the things he recommended I already did myself regarding nutrition and garlic, Omega oils. The discription above about this book and other peoples reviews, can give a false impression that it is a thick book or at least thick in that meaning, it contains a lot of essential information. I'm sorry I can't agree. In the end it's 2 blank pages and in the beginning it also has repeating pages with the title. Like they want to fill the book up with empty blank pages just to make it look thicker.
Another thing is that you can't give a diagnos like Hashimotos without doing biopsy. The lab needs to use a needle and take out material, cells, from the thyroid to see if it's really is a inflammation or not. He's gland was not swollen either so they couldn't see it that way. The antibodies test were maybe wrong, cause he only have antibodies once.

My hypothyroidism is gone due this book - 5 stars no matter how many deficiencies in the research and writing! There are, in fact, obvious scientific deficiencies and a lack of depth that many of the criticisms discuss.

Prior to reading this book, I read most of the other books on Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. All of them focused on identifying undiagnosed cases and living as well as possible with this "incurable" disease. This supported the view of my endocrinologist and for 2 years I accepted western medicine's inaccurate approach to hypothyroidism by adhering to a daily regimen of synthroid.

I read this book with skepticism. I have a degree in engineering and a business degree from an Ivy League university. However, Mr. Dirgo fully achieves his purpose in writing this book. He got me to consider other possibilities and that led me to research Homeopathic medicine, Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda. All three systems are similar in that they treat the underlying cause rather than the symptoms of Hashimoto's, but there are pro's and cons to each. I was surprised to find the incurability of hypothyroidism is only accepted by the "experts" of western medicine.

I chose to treat my Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism through Ayurvedic medicine. The results were astonishing and the benefits went well beyond reversing hypothyroidism. I have not taken synthroid (or any other thyroid hormone supplement)since July 2001. Since then my TSH level has not varied from the middle of the normal range and the antibodies went from extremely high to high to slightly positive. An interesting note on antibody tests: The results include this caveat "Although a positive result indicates Hashimoto's Disease, some people without the disease also test positive for thyroid antibodies".

Almost nothing in this book. Drumroll, please, the author took...co-enzyme Q-10! The author also had nothing like the misery those of us who've had low thyroid for decades have experienced. This book hit the trash can.

Ok ..I read all the reviews, good and bad and bought the book anyway. After reading his book I don't know if this guy actually had Hashimoto's syndrome. Anyway, he does give some food for thought in the direction of diet,etc. and what to add and to avoid. Since he doesn't give much in the way of sources to prove or support his claims of why his life style changes will work, I'm a bit skeptical of his claims. Still.. like many of us who would like to get off synthroid, I thought, ok .. I'll give it a shot.

I have to agree with the other reviewers who criticized him for not giving dosage amounts for the suppliments etc., and for the 'diary pages'. The number of pages listed for the actual writing IS misleading. Don't waste your money buying this, browse it in the book store first. If you think it's of value to you after actually seeing it, then get it.
