The Moore book is very technical, and will tell you as much as you want to know about the disease and the treatments. Dr. Zaidi's book is easier to understand, and gets at all the information. My doctor had downplayed the dangers of RAI, and overstated those of the antithyroid medication. Dr. Zaidi explains the different methods of treatment and their risks and benefits. He also explains some lifestyle changes to go alone with antithyroid medication that may help put the disease into remission.
Because of my reading, I've decided to go with the antithyroid medication. After all, if it doesn't work, I can always try the RAI later. Interestingly, two of the lifestyle changes are things I already knew I needed to change - I have come up as Vitamin D deficient in physicals for a few years preceding my Graves, and I had just been through a couple of very stressful years. I'm working on all that, and hoping for the best. I also found out that a friend I hadn't seen in 5 years had been through this too - she refused the RAI, did the antithyroid meds, made some minor life changes, and is in remission.
So, I strongly recommend this book. No matter which approach you decide to use, you will be more knowledgeable and confident in your decision.
I really appreciate Dr. Zaidi's position on treating Grave's disease not only with medicine, but with a good disciplined diet, we can make an enormous impact on our health by eating the proper foods for our thyroid. I am happy to report that in addition to working with my new endocrinologist, I am also working with a natural therapy doctor who has helped me with diet and nutritional supplements and I am well on my way to better health. I shared Dr. Zaidi's book with my natural medicine doctor who also gives the book kudos and has purchased another book! I would love Dr. Zaidi to be my endocrinologist but I live a few hundred miles too far. But hey, the book is there for those in need. If you are in the Thousand Oaks area in California, and need a specialists, look up Dr. Zaidi. This book has been a tremendous help in getting me on the right road to good health and I am now confident I can live well! Don't be discouraged Grave's disease sufferers, you can take back your health!
Thank you Dr. Zaidi, your book is priceless!!

Several years ago, my daughter developed Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism. She went to see Dr. Zaidi, who advised her against radioiodine treatment. In stead, he put her on his special program: diet, vitamin D and stress management. It worked.
Eight years later, she is cured of Graves' disease and living a healthy life. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism. Stay away from the madness of nuking your own thyroid. Use the revolutionary knowledge and wisdom in this book and save your thyroid.
