Graves' disease is one of several causes of hyperthyroidism. In "Graves' Disease And Hyperthyroidism", Dr. Zaidi, a leading endocrinologist, describes how to accurately diagnose and treat Graves' disease as well as other causes of hyperthyroidism. The medical treatment of Graves' disease has not changed in over 50 years. Sad, but true! The standard, usual treatment with Radioactive iodine is a superficial, myopic approach. It almost always makes you hypothyroid (underactive thyroid state). Then, you need to be on thyroid pills for the rest of your life. In addition, radioactive iodine does not treat the underlying root cause of Graves' disease - autoimmune dysfunction, which continues to smolder and easily erupts into another autoimmune disease. Anti-thyroid drugs do not treat autoimmune dysfunction either. They provide only temporary relief. Often, symptoms return once you stop these drugs. Surgery also does not treat autoimmune dysfunction. It often leads to hypothyroidism as well as many other complications. Over the last ten years, Dr. Zaidi developed a truly breakthrough approach to get rid of Graves' disease at its roots - autoimmune dysfunction. His patients have benefited tremendously from this approach. Now, its time for you to learn about this ground breaking discovery. Dr. Zaidi reveals what really causes autoimmune dysfunction that ultimately leads to Graves' disease. His revolutionary treatment strategy consists of five components: His unique Diet for Graves' disease (including original recipes), the link between Vitamin D deficiency and Graves' disease, the connection between Graves' disease and Vitamin B12 deficiency, how Stress causes Graves' disease (and Dr. Zaidi's unique strategy to manage stress) and the Judicious use of Anti-Thyroid drugs. Dr. Zaidi also explains: What are thyroid antibodies? What are the tests to diagnose various causes of hyperthyroidism? What causes Graves' eye disease and what is its proper treatment? How do you accurately diagnose and manage Graves' disease during pregnancy?

Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven’t gone away—people aren’t healing. Labeling someone with "Hashimoto’s," "hypothyroidism," or the like doesn’t explain the myriad health issues that person may experience. That’s because there’s a pivotal truth that goes by unnoticed: A thyroid problem is not the ultimate reason for a person’s illness. A problematic thyroid is yet one more symptom of something much larger than this one small gland in the neck. It’s something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that’s responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.In Medical Medium Thyroid Healing, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what’s going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit and many new recipes to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality.

Tired Thyroid: From Hyper to Hypo to Healing—Breaking the TSH Rule
Do you suffer from fatigue, dry skin, thin hair, memory issues, constipation, and feel cold all the time? Do you have anxiety, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, adrenal fatigue (problems dealing with stress), PCOS/infertility, brain fog/dementia, osteoporosis, insomnia, insulin resistance, or asthma? Have you ever asked your doctor about hypothyroidism, tested your TSH, and been told your results were normal? Learn why it’s so difficult to get a hypothyroid diagnosis today, and why patients don't feel well when a TSH lab test determines their dose (the TSH Rule). Learn what tests to ask for instead, what a normal thyroid gland secretes, and the pros and cons of popular internet protocols.Read five case studies that illustrate the flaws of using TSH as a dosing guideline:1)Barbara Lougheed shares her story as a hyperthyroid Graves’ disease patient who had radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment. When she became hypothyroid, her doctor prescribed Synthroid (levothyroxine or T4). Follow her journey as she searches for her optimal dose, trying desiccated thyroid, T3, and various combinations. 2)A hypopituitary man remains undiagnosed for decades because of his normal TSH. 3)An older woman with Hashimoto’s thyroid disease has her Synthroid dose reduced because of her low TSH, even though her T3 levels were below the reference range. 4)A young man’s fatigue is puzzling until lab tests identify his iron loading condition. 5)A woman successfully battles Graves’ disease using alternative treatments. Even though she no longer suffers from debilitating hyperthyroid symptoms, she still has very little TSH. Learn how thyroid hormones work and why current medical treatments and patient-directed internet protocols often don’t relieve all symptoms. Is the iodine protocol, T3-only protocol to clear reverse T3 (rT3), or natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) a good idea for everyone? This book reveals the facts so patients can make an educated decision.
