• It’s estimated that 1 in 10 women have a thyroid imbalance**, but as symptoms are diverse the problem is often unresolved. This book shows how to identify a thyroid problem, relieve symptoms, and obtain treatment.

The symptoms of a thyroid imbalance include Chronic Fatigue, Weight Gain, Mood Swings, as well as dried out skin and hair, changes in libido and menstrual problems.

This new edition has been fully re-structured and includes a large amount of new material to reflect the needs of today’s readers.

Contains detailed information about natural health and complementary treatments to help relieve symptoms.

Gives the low-down on thyroid hormone tests and other orthodox medical procedures that may be offered.

Is an informative yet simple book that provides a ‘patients-eye’ view of thyroid imbalance so readers can better understand their doctors.

Discusses the links between sub-clinical thyroid problems (the most common sort – that cause longterm problems but are hard to pin down) and other conditions such as depression, obesity.
