About the Author

Diagnosed with a thyroid disease in 1995, Mary J. Shomon has transformed her health challenges into a mission as an internationally known patient advocate. She is the founder and editor in chief of several thyroid, autoimmune, and nutrition newsletters, as well as the Internet’s most popular thyroid disease website, www.thyroid-info.com. She lives in Kensington, Maryland.


More About the Author

I'm Mary Shomon, and I'm a patient advocate, author, communications consultant, wife and mother. I've tried to transform my own struggle with thyroid disease into an advocacy campaign on behalf of patients with chronic diseases such as thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions, hormone imbalances, and weight gain, among others.

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in 1995, and now research and write about these conditions and their impact on health and weight. Since early 1997, I have served as founder and Guide for the award-winning About.com Thyroid website, and as editor of my popular patient thyroid news report, Sticking Out Our Necks.

In my patient advocacy role, I try yto bring much-needed attention to underdiagnosed and often overlooked health issues. My desire to cut through medical jargon and deliver information to my fellow patients in a form they can understand resulted in my first health-related book, Living Well With Hypothyroidism: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You . . . That You Need to Know, which was first published in 2000 by HarperCollins, and has gone to more than 20 printings before a 2nd Revised Edition was published in 2005. The book was a Prevention Book Club Selection, and Amazon Top-Selling health book, and its popularity launched a new series of consumer health books for publisher HarperCollins.

I am also author of the New York Times best-selling book The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss. (2004) "Thyroid Diet" was also a semi-finalist for the prestigious Quills Awards in 2005.

I am also author of Living Well With Graves' Disease and Hyperthyroidism" (2005) Living Well With Autoimmune Disease"(2003) Living Well With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia," (2004), Thyroid Hormone Breakthrough (2005), The Menopause Thyroid Solution, The Thyroid Diet Revolution, and the Thyroid Guide to Hair Loss.

I have served as the Guide for the popular About.com Thyroid site -- formerly part of the New York Times, and now part of Ask.com -- launching the site in early 1997, and managing the site and working as its sole researcher/writer since that time. That site, Thyroid.about.com, along with my advocacy site Thyroid-info.com, are among the Internet's most popular and visited sites dedicated to thyroid disease.

I've been featured in hundreds of television, radio, newspaper, magazine and web interviews, including appearances on ABC World News Tonight and CBS Radio Networks, and interviews in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Ladies Home Journal, Health, Cooking Light, Elle Magazine, Woman's World, and the Los Angeles Times, to name just a few.

In my two decades of consumer advocacy, I have never hesitated to take a stand on behalf of patients, and my independence from drug companies and medical/patient organizations that are funded by the pharmaceutical industry has allowed me to maintain an unbiased, truly patient-first advocacy effort.

I am also co-star of the PBS television special, Healthy Hormones: Mind-Body Fitness, with fitness expert Teresa Tapp.

I got this book out of concern for my wife and found that the information is invaluable. Part of my wife's issues are related to thyroid and part to menopause, and the book helps with both. The book is both easy to understand and provides practical solutions. It also helped me understand what she was going through and how I could help. A very useful book.

Mary Shomon clearly lays out the issues concerning the latest information, belief systems and science concerning hormones in the aging body. I have been interested in this topic for nearly 15 years...when I first heard John R. Lee, MD speak on progesterone. As an early pioneer who treated women with severe osteoporosis with ProGest, he discovered that, indeed, these women could rebuild bone! Since then, I have continued to read what I could find on the Internet about bioidentical hormones. Never sure which physicians to trust, I went without hormones. As John Lee, MD first pointed out...the lack of studies on bioidentical hormone replacement versus synthetic hormones is due to the money that the pharmeceuticals make from their own patents. However, when physicians who are well educated read the studies that do exist, they, too begin to believe in the importance of testing and supplementing the body with needed hormones. What an impact on one's quality of life! Read this book...it is written in layman's terms. It's very helpful because it empowers you to have a meaningful conversation with your physician. If your physician can't respond, give him/her a copy!!! Ultimately, you must know your own body, how it functions and what symptoms you have. It's a big responsibility to take on but it's so worth it. Ignorance is NOT bliss!

Mary Shomon has once again given some truly helpful thyroid information, this time for women "of a certain age." And, boy, can thyroid woes combined with perimenopause/menopause give many of us a one-two punch! It is so unfortunate that many doctors do not put all endocrine information together - thyroid issues AND menopause (!) - yet Mary has connected many dots and gives a wide range of well-researched information and suggestions in a balanced, holistic approach that includes everything from understanding how ALL hormones connect, nutrition, possible supplements, types of hormonal testing, the gamut of hormonal treatments available, exercise suggestions, and many alternative approaches. After reading this wonderful book, perimenopausal/menopausal women will have enough information to discuss a variety of options with health care providers to address their symptoms as well as empowering women to look beyond just what their providers know.

This book is excellent. Whether you have had thyroid problems for years or newly diagnosed, this book will help you understand both thyroid problems and menopause problems and how they are sometimes intertwined. I have had thyroid problems for almost 3 decades and still learned many things about thyroid that I simply never knew. I highly recommed this book for all women - young or old.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the information is right on and very enlightening, the author could have said the same things much simpler. She does not give any real solutions for relieving the symptoms. I wish I had read her years ago when the doctors kept telling me that there was nothing wrong with me and implying that I was just a typical hysterical woman. I have deteriated to the point that I can no longer asorb a lot of information. I need things simple and to the point. All of my health problems are in this book but I still have no idea of what to do about it. I have given up on finding a doctor, I cannot afford it anymore, but she has me confused as what to do. What to eat for example. I see there are several foods I need to eliminate but it does not leave me much as I am a vegetarian. For the most part She confirmed my suspicions but I need simpler instructions. Her book is more for a phycian to than for the layman.

This is a great book about the thyroid and menopaual link. As a female medical doctor I have battled against many colleagues to get this info to my patients and have it help them for over 15 years. Now, even my HMO patients are finally agreeing to try to manage their health with 'alternative and natural' approaches... with the help of reading books like this. The rewards are plenty from practicing medicine this way and have my patients giving me the "high five" on a daily basis. I love practicing medicine this way for all of my patients. This medicine is no longer only for 'the rich and famous' that I've treated for over 15 years! Kudos to all who continue to expand my patients minds and let them now come to me asking for these types of treatments instead of me having to convince them this stuff really works! DRMARAIO.COM

The information made sense but it was a little wordy. I don't feel that someone needs to say the same thing over and over in different ways to make the book have more pages. It is nice sometimes to read a shortened version. However,with that being said, the information was helpful to me.
