All about Hashimoto’s: Taming the Beast book
Hashimoto’s patients have it hard—a phrase created by and unique to Stop the Thyroid Madness, LLC, and it’s very, very true. This Hashimoto’s book is your patient-to-patient guide on how to TAME THE AUTOIMMUNE BEAST.
“Autoimmune” means one’s immune system is attacking healthy cells in one’s body instead of the bacteria and viruses it should be attacking. And in the case of Hashimoto’s disease, it’s the thyroid gland that’s being attacked. An immune system gone haywire!
The result of that cunning and nutty attack? It can mean harmful chronic inflammation, the risk of pairing with other autoimmune diseases, and a weakened thyroid gland causing hypothyroidism…to name a few.
PRESENTING the life-changing, friendly, yet powerful patient-to-patient Hashimoto’s book…
by Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed.

10. There is a chapter totally focused on Hashimoto’s inflammation––in other words, labs to prove it, what it can do to you, what you need to do about it, supplements and foods to consider to counter inflammation. (Plus of course, good footnotes, and added URL’s in the body if needed)
11. Two excellent and informative chapters on different gut health problems to identify and treat, or be reacquainted with. They include symptoms, types under each category, ways to treat, and more.
12. Different lists of patient-reported symptoms within different chapters to help identify your issues, for example:
- chapter with symptoms from the autoimmune attack

- inflammation symptom list…etc.

14. There is a blank “NOTES” page at the end of each chapter where you can put page numbers to remember or additional information which you have gleaned in this book or others! That way, you don’t have to flip through all the pages to find what was important to you
