This is an excerpt from my new book, The Thyroid Connection.
If, like so many people, you’ve struggled to get your doctor to believe that something is wrong with you, my heart goes out to you. When you’re feeling sick, tired, and scared, there’s nothing worse than having a physician— the person whose help you desperately need— tell you that you’re fine and there’s nothing more that he or she can do to help you. “It’s all in your head,” “This just happens as you get older,” “I’ve already done everything I can”— these are unconscionable responses, in my opinion, and frankly, they make my blood boil. They are far too common among conventional doctors, and the sad thing is, most patients are stuck believing them.
Well, it ends here. I’m here to tell you there are millions of patients whose doctors told them that help was not available in conventional medicine—and who then went on to get help from functional medicine. I want you to know that you are not alone, that you can be helped, and that any doctor who dismisses you or brushes you off is failing in his or her professional duties.
There’s a kind of trauma involved in having one or more doctors ignore your pain— I’ve seen it in patient after patient, and I’ve certainly felt it myself. If you’ve been frustrated with your doctor’s response— and especially if you’ve been frustrated by the responses of several doctors— you can probably relate. That’s why my book includes several case studies from patients who have gone through this same trauma and were able to reclaim their health and vitality.
They did this by addressing the root cause of their thyroid dysfunction using diet and lifestyle changes. Some of these life-chancing steps include:
- getting the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that your thyroid needs to make thyroid hormone and that your body needs to correctly respond to that hormone
- healing your gut
- lowering your levels of inflammation
- getting the right kind of exercise for your body, neither too little nor too much
- decreasing your exposure to toxins and improving your body’s ability to detoxify
- healing underlying infections
- countering the stress in your life with enough relaxation to keep your stress hormones at an optimal level.
These elements of The Myers Way Thyroid Connection Plan are hardly the stuff of TV dramas, and they are pooh-poohed by many conventional doctors as changes that are “not really going to make much difference.”
But in fact, the difference they make can be extremely dramatic, as your symptoms retreat, your energy returns, your anxiety and depression lift, and your entire body enjoys a reliable, steady glow of vitality and well-being.
You’ll begin to experience these benefits yourself when you’ve completed the twenty-eight-day plan from my book. As you address the root causes of your condition and start on the right treatment protocol, you’ll see your symptoms start to disappear, your energy will return, your mood will stabilize, and your health and your life will transform. I’ve seen this transformation in thousands of patients and I can’t wait for you to experience it too!
