In my advocacy, I noticed that there were potentially millions of women out there who either don’t use a computer, or if they do, they have no clue that the symptoms they experience are due to an inferior medication called T4-only, or compounded by adrenal fatigue. I’ve been shocked how many I come into contact with even in my small little world. And if you multiply that times the large and growing global population who have hypothyroid, it’s potentially millions who walk around clueless.
To reach them, I did the book.
But…because of other thyroid books out there, I’ve been unable to convince either a publisher or an agent that I have a different focus–i.e. STTM is based on PATIENT EXPERIENCE and for that reason alone, provides a totally different focus with unique information! This website proves it!
But sadly, unless you are a thyroid patient who has lived years and years of being told….
1) your symptoms are all in your head
2) you are normal, normal, normal because a TSH lab result says so
3) your high cholesterol, aches and pains, thinning hair, poor stamina and weight gain are normal parts of aging
4) you need to fill this prescription for an antidepressant, statin and pain med to treat those “other” symptoms
5) there’s nothing wrong with your adrenals
…you won’t get the need for the book. And sadly, they haven’t.
So…this website will be providing ways for YOU to spread the word, and hopefully over time, we can reach those millions who either don’t use a computer, or who don’t get that their high cholesterol, aches and pains, thinning hair, poor stamina and weight gain ARE due to an inferior treatment and a doctor who relies solely on the TSH….and there’s a MUCH better treatment.
Right now, STTM has a flyer you can use, and coming soon: t-shirts and business cards.
If I can’t find an agent or publisher wise enough to see the need for the STTM book, they YOU will be the messenger, and we’ll help the best we can. 🙂 STOP THE THYROID MADNESS!
