Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"While there are many books about thyroid disease, this is the first that integrates pathophysiology, medical treatment, and nutrition recommendations. This book could be a useful resource for health professionals who work with a large number of thyroid patients and wish to explore complementary treatment options for their thyroid condition."

-- Amy Hess Fischl, MS RDN LDN BC-ADM CDCES (University of Chicago Medical Center) Doody's Review

Audience

The book is written for healthcare professionals: physicians, dietitians, and other allied health professionals. It is not meant for students. I see this being useful in endocrinology practices, chiropractic offices, and natural medicine professionals. The author appears to be a credible authority on this subject. However, she noted to "keep an open mind," highlighting that the information presented may not be 100% evidence-based and maybe some of her own opinion and experience.
