You will learn that your genes can make you more susceptible to an immune attack on the thyroid, resulting in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (the most common cause of underactive thyroid) and Graves’ disease (the most common cause of overactive thyroid). That being said, what you eat, stress, radiation, pollution, and other environmental factors are major culprits in the occurrence of autoimmune thyroid disease. Stress can trigger thyroid imbalance, and thyroid imbalance can keep you from effectively dealing with stress. The Thyroid Solution also covers the treatment choices that help reach mind and body wellness. Once your brain and body have been deprived or overtaxed with thyroid hormone, you may continue to suffer from a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, anxiety, and impaired cognition. The Thyroid Solution provides practical, conventional, and holistic approaches to curing these lingering effects. The book provides a comprehensive mind-body treatment program that helps heal both your body and spirit.
At length, The Thyroid Solution discusses women’s wellness, interactions between female hormones and the thyroid, the pros and cons of hormonal replacement therapy, the benefits of estrogens, and the best ways to take hormones.
It also describes sophisticated thyroid hormone treatments for underactive thyroid, which include T4 and T3 thyroid hormone combinations. T3, the most active form of thyroid hormone, is especially helpful for patients suffering from depression and low energy. Dr. Arem emphasizes mind-body techniques and proper intake of vitamins and antioxidants. He will teach you about the best lifestyle choices that will help prevent and alleviate thyroid imbalance, including the optimal diet for thyroid health.
The Thyroid Solution also demonstrates how to address other hidden causes of lingering symptoms including pituitary fatigue caused by growth hormone deficiency, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and sleep apnea, just to name a few.
Thyroid hormone is crucial for proper mind-body communication. It constantly interacts with the immune system and brain to regulate mood, energy, and hormonal/emotional balance. The Thyroid Solution thoroughly describes all facts on thyroid disorders and the many ways to achieve and maintain optimal health if you have a thyroid imbalance.
