About the Author
I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I achieved Editor's Choice Awards for my articles on health subjects. In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis). I was aso diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy and thyroid myopathy, with co-morbid nutritional deficiencies. My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders.

If you have had thyroid problems or peripheral neuropathy for more than a couple of years, you will probably already be familiar with the ideas herein (balance your thyroid meds, check for B12/vit-D/magnesium deficiencies, exercise).
The author also has a theory about the Epstein-Barr virus triggering thyroid disease; however, since 95% of the population has EBV, I'm not convinced there's a connection.
This little "book" was simply not worth the purchase price to me, considering how much similar content is available for free on the web.
