This is a new book in Dr. Michelle Honda’s series of natural health books. Reverse Thyroid Disease Naturally follows Reverse Gut Disease Naturally, Reverse Inflammation Naturally, Reverse Alzheimer’s Disease Naturally and Reverse Heart Disease Naturally. Her newest book follows a similar format of the other books.
Well-written and easy to read, this book will be your go to guide for improving your overall health. This book is not only about thyroid disease; it covers alternative treatments for hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Grave’s disease, goiters, Hashimoto’s disease, thyroid cancer, fatigue and more.
Thyroid issues are one of the most commonly misdiagnosed disorders in the world today. Many people go to their doctor with complaints of muscles aches, fatigue that doesn’t let up, low energy, digestive problems and other vague symptoms. If the doctor is unable to diagnose the problem, this forces the person to suffer, does not offer any treatment options and the person os forced to live a less than full life.
This book fills that void and gives you the information you need to identify, treat and eventually reverse your thyroid condition while improving your health. You will find a comprehensive overview of thyroid disease and related health conditions in this book. Michelle Honda provides expert dietary guidelines for thyroid health, along with natural substitutes for over the counter and prescription medications. Also included is the latest information on clinical trials, surgeries, medications and alternative therapies.
This book is to be used in addition to any medical treatment you are receiving. This book should not be relied upon solely as treatment for thyroid issues. Many things can easily be implemented into daily life. My biggest takeaway from this book is the importance of proper nutrition and supplementation to support and heal the thyroid. For example, eating foods high in L-Tyrosine will help raise dopamine which helps to reduce stress. Another thing you can do is juicing. Michelle Honda provides the following recipe:
Dr. Honda’s Thyroid Juicing Formula
- 3-4 pounds of carrots
- 1 medium beet
- 1 apple
- Dandelion, parsley or other comparable green
Take those ingredients, only wash and trim them (do not peel). Then juice them. The recipe makes four cups. Drink one pint at a time. This can be refrigerated but should be used within 24 hours for best nutritional value.
Even just by making a few small changes to your diet and managing stress, you can easily help your body start to heal itself.
