Dr. Nikolas Hedberg’s book, The Thyroid Alternative is an easy-to-read, comprehensive, and educational book that can help both patients and clinicians address the underlying causes of thyroid dysfunction. Dr. Hedberg explains the interrelationships between the thyroid and the pancreas, adrenals, immune system, gut, and the liver. He also reviews how toxic chemicals, iodine repletion, and other hormones can affect thyroid health.
For a patient new to the biomedical field, Dr. Hedberg writes clearly and directly about causes, symptoms, and treatments. For the experienced clinician, Dr. Hedberg reviews the “big picture” of thyroid health, as well as various factors affecting the thyroid. Plus, he delves into biochemical interactions that are sometimes forgotten many years after medical school.
The Thyroid Alternative gives a thorough list of underlying causes of thyroid disease, a comprehensive reference list, and detailed diet recommendations. This book helps patients educate themselves so that they can find a doctor who will assist them in healing the thyroid naturally. An interesting, to-the-point, and fast read for patients, The Thyroid Alternative is also rich in science, biochemistry, and medical knowledge for the clinician.
