The complete thyroid health & diet guide : understanding and managing thyroid disease
Hedberg, Nikolas R
Toronto, Ontario : Robert Rose Inc., 2015
Part 1: Thyroid basics. How does the thyroid work? ; How do I know if I have a thyroid disorder? -- Part 2: Thyroid dysfunction. The immune system and thyroid disorders ; The gastrointestinal system and thyroid disorders ; The hepatic system and thyroid disorders ; The adrenal glands and thyroid disorders ; Hormone imbalance and thyroid disorders ; Iodine and thyroid disorders -- Part 3: Thyroid management. Medications and surgery for thyroid dysfunction ; Lifestyle modifications for thyroid dysfunction ; The balanced thyroid diet -- Part 4: Thyroid meal plan -- Part 5: Thyroid recipes.
One of every eight women has a thyroid disorder, an incidence five to eight times higher than men. The thyroid produces the "master hormone" that controls everything in the body. One of the biggest reasons the thyroid slows down is because of iodine deficiency and aging. The wide-spread use of medications delivers poor outcomes. Many patients with thyroid disorders are desperate for help, looking for alternatives to conventional medicine. This book provides a thorough understanding of why the thyroid may be out of balance and what to do about it. Each chapter breaks down the different body systems and how they relate to thyroid disorders. The author provides an in-depth look at autoimmune thyroid disease, which is the most common cause of thyroid disorders. The second half of the book is filled with thyroid-healthy recipes and nutritional strategies to ensure that metabolism is running at a high level. This book also has nutritional strategies to help the healthy thyroid.
