About this work

Also known as

Stop the thyroid madness. 2


Created by Janie Bowthorpe, patient-to-patient STTM (Stop the Thyroid Madness) birthed hypothyroid treatment knowledge and protocols to counter decades of treatment mismanagement due to inferior medications, the wrong lab work, and a poor understanding of symptoms. Now Bowthorpe brings the reader this book, authored by over a dozen medical professionals. You'll read about the functional and holistic approach to thyroid disease, how stress affects the thyroid patient, the superior treatment of natural desiccated thyroid, why the TSH lab test is inadequate, what "normal" really doesn't mean when it comes to lab work, the importance of nutrition in regaining health and well-being, all about the autoimmune Hashimoto's version of hypothyroidism, why doctors are the way they are and how to relate to them, gluten and nutritional issues, thyroid toxicity and how to counter those toxins, the Reverse T3 problem, how MTHFR and methylation blockages can affect thyroid patients, and an understanding of why so many thyroid patients end up with low cortisol, aka hypocortisolism.
