A surprising new plan to reverse the symptoms of thyroid disease by reducing excess dietary iodine, from integrative physician and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Alan Christianson. “The most innovative treatment plan around.”—JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author, celebrity nutrition expert, and Fitness Hall of Famer Though the thyroid gland is small, it produces hormones that control the rate of nearly every chemical reaction in the body—turning food into energy, controlling the rate of tissue growth, stimulating the activity of other hormones, and much more. An estimated twenty million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, and up to 60 percent of them are unaware of their condition. Depending on the type and severity of the thyroid disease, symptoms can range from weight gain and fatigue to hair thinning and memory loss. In The Thyroid Reset Diet, Dr. Alan Christianson helps readers reverse chronic thyroid diseases like hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis with nothing more than dietary change: the reduction of iodine intake. Backed by new research showing that proper dietary iodine intake can start to reverse thyroid disease in as little as four weeks, his diet plan contains the optimal amount of iron and dietary iodine to control thyroid hormones, effectively resetting the thyroid. Instead of following a restrictive diet for thyroid health, The Thyroid Reset Diet does not require eliminating any food category. Instead, Dr. Christianson recommends food swaps like brown rice instead of processed bread to regulate iodine intake. He shares the latest on supplements and other thyroid health strategies, along with more than sixty-five recipes, weekly meal plans, and maintenance info. His cutting-edge research and clear results, coupled with an easy-to-follow diet plan, will help anyone struggling with thyroid disease.

In her very successful book, The Schwarzbein Principle, renowned endocrinologist Diana Schwarzbein introduced her scientifically proven conclusion that degenerative diseases are not genetic, but acquired. Many studies have supported this, proving that life expectancy is 75 to 90 percent due to habits and only 10 to 25 percent due to genetics. This means that someone who is genetically destined to die at age 100 may not live past age 60 because of poor habits and lifestyle choices that cause accelerated aging and premature death. Conversely, a person can live to 100 and be functionally healthy. In this highly anticipated follow-up, Diana Schwarzbein, M.D., goes beyond the diet she introduced in her first book—which literally helped thousands of people lose weight—and offers a personalized anti-aging program for readers to heal their metabolisms and stop advanced aging in its tracks. Weaving in groundbreaking research and provocative case studies—including her own regeneration and that of her clients—she leads readers through a series of eye-opening questionnaires, which identify where they are on their path to either accelerated or healthy aging. Based on readers’ answers, she leads them to the “how-to” sections, which explain, in easy-to-follow and personalized detail, the steps they need to take to restore healthy functioning. For each unique situation, she covers five areas: Nutrition , Hormone Replacement Therapy (if needed), Tapering Off Toxic Chemicals or Avoiding Them Completely , Cross-Training Exercises and Stress Management. The Schwarzbein Principle II is sure to follow the success of the first book and will help people live a more healthful lifestyle by embracing a regeneration process to prevent and reverse accelerated aging.

In America, it's estimated that 30 million people suffer from abnormal thyroid function. Half are unaware of it and women are eight times more likely to develop thyroid problems than men. Depression, irritability, fatigue, high cholesterol, rapid weight gain or loss, muscle weakness, hair loss, heart arrhythmias, stiff or swollen joints; these are just a sampling of the debilitating medical maladies that can result from a malfunctioning thyroid. Thyroid disease is a patient and silent thief. It can take years or even decades to develop while steadily robbing its victims of the joy of everyday living. An dangerous disease, too many people accept its ravages upon mind and body as an inevitable part of the aging process. What is this disease and what can you do to combat it? The answer to the latter part of this question is simple: See a doctor for evaluation. The answer to the former part, as you will soon see, generally depends on which form of the disease you have: hypothyroidism, or hyperthyroidism. "Can The Thyroid Diet Really Help?" By Melinda Bell is the go to source for many women that suffer from this terrible ailment. Who among us hasn't had a doctor reach out and touch our necks along both sides of the windpipe? He or she was conducting a digital exam to determine if the thyroid gland, located just above the collarbone, was swollen or the presence of growths called nodules could be detected. Growing professional awareness of thyroid disorder has doctors erring on the side of caution these days, and a simple blood test will likely be ordered as the next step toward diagnosis. Pick up your copy of "Can The Thyroid Diet Really Help?" by Melinda Bell today.
