About the Book

NO, YOU'RE NOT CRAZY Despite seeing dozens of doctors and thyroid specialists, being treated with thyroid medication, and having "normal thyroid labs"... you still don't feel well. Maybe you're still exhausted, gaining weight, losing hair, and feeling depressed, foggy, or anxious. You're not crazy. You're not alone. And it is not your fault. You're simply stuck in the middle of a Thyroid Debacle. For decades, modern medicine has misunderstood key points about thyroid physiology that has led to the prolonged suffering of millions of Americans - most importantly, that thyroid disorders are primarily caused by a dysfunctional thyroid gland. As a result, doctors are taught to rely on an outdated model of testing TSH and T4, and simply replacing thyroid hormone with medication, never once asking the question of what's causing the dysfunction in the first place. In The Thyroid Debacle, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Kelly Halderman explore thyroid disorders from a new perspective, looking to create a paradigm shift in how doctors and patients understand and approach thyroid physiology. They argue that hypothyroidism is more commonly an issue with the functioning of cells, not a problem with the thyroid gland itself, and that the key is to look at root causes rather than attempt to mask symptoms with pills. You can feel like yourself again. This revolutionary new approach will help you understand the real cause of your thyroid symptoms so you can make informed decisions with your doctor and take back control of your health. “This is not your usual thyroid book—thank goodness. Dig into this book. Learn howyour thyroid works, what dirties it, and howyou can clean it up. In time, you'll feel better than ever.” - DR. BEN LYNCH, Author of the best-selling book 'Dirty Genes' “This book goes deep but also offers hope with practical suggestions on how to course-correct when typical thyroid interventions have failed. I recommend it to everyone who struggles with thyroid dysfunction, or who is in medicine and wants to truly learn more about the thyroid—beyond Synthroid and selenium.” - CARRIE JONES, ND, FABNE, MPH, Head ofMedical Education, Rupa Health
