For over twenty years, Dr. Philip Young has been successfully treating patients suffering from hypothyroidism (“low thyroid”) using a holistic approach. In Thyroid, Guardian of Health, Young teaches readers the secrets of his clinical success. First, he shows how to recognize symptoms of low thyroid through his Hypothyroid Questionnaire and Physical Exam. Then he discusses the various functions of the thyroid in human metabolism and explains how to understand the results of thyroid blood tests.
While understanding thyroid issues can be complicated, Dr. Young makes it easy through many anecdotal examples that help to explain the workings of the thyroid and body chemistry in a real-life context. If you suspect you suffer from hypothyroidism, do yourself a favor and buy this book.
From Amazon Customer Reviews:
“I bought this book for my daughter in New York. Too many of the health issues she is dealing with sound like low thyroidism to me, though she has never been treated for it. I wanted her to become more knowledgeable, so I sent her the book. We have to know our bodies and accept responsiblity for our health. We need to look until we find doctors willing to work with us.”
—Carol Greenwood “Reading Specialist”
“Too many people have thyroid problems that go undiagnosed. Doctors know a fraction of what they think they know. You can’t trust your doctor to know what’s best. If you do, you’re a fool. You need to be informed and read about things that involve your health. Doctors like to get you in and out of their office so they can make money to feed the machine that’s a medical practice these days. They don’t study holistic healing, they study what prescription to write for a particular symptom. So if you want your symptoms treated, go to your doctor. If you want healing, get knowledge and ask the right questions. this book helps you be very informed.”
“This book has lots of good basic information about your thyroid and how it affects your health. I like the large print and it appears to be well written.”
“A wonderfully informative book, written by an experienced MD. By the end, no one could be in any doubt about what a master gland the thyroid is and how any malfuncion will affect every organ of the body. The author explains the various complex interactions of thyroid hormones, and how they affect us in ways we would never guess. Purchased a few books about thyroid lately, but this is by far my favorite (I’ve read it through 3 times already). Wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in health even if you have no thyroid problem. So cheap, and so much great information here. Seeing as how thyroid disease is so underdiagnosed I hope a few MDs read it as well.”
