"Consider Thyroid Power a long, personal visit with a caring, prevention-oriented practitioner," state the authors. The journey begins with thyroid basics: how this little hormone-producing tissue operates, signs that things are amiss, how other illnesses compound the problem, and how to determine one's risk for hypothyroidism. Next, the Shameses discuss the labyrinth of diagnostic and treatment issues a patient must endure. Helpful and harmful supplements and environmental factors, repairing the immune system (the origin of thyroid troubles), and a rich, sensitive exploration of holistic healing nicely round out this valuable resource. A brief section titled "Show This to Your Doctor," penned by Richard, perfectly crystallizes the book and provides an effective tool for initiating a patient/physician dialogue. --Liane Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is very thorough, yet easy as can be to understand.
Most doctors do not provide all the test needed to check your thyroid and this book helps you get a clear picture and ask the right questions to your doctor.
This book is directed and designed for the health consumer and it will help to empower them to demand the treatments they are entitled to receive.

Very disappointed in the content of this book.
Not alot of information just references to other books/authors.
Not worth the $9 I spent.
Very informative for thyroid patients. Book is rather old however the physiology review is very helpful in understanding of how it all works.Published 5 months ago by mary g bell
