5-0 out of 5 stars An exhaustive guide on all-things thyroid
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disease that causes the thyroid to excrete too many thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism), which can cause rapid heartbeat, anxiety, nervousness, goiter, weight loss, fatigue, menstrual irregularities, increased temperature and blood pressure, to name a few. In some cases it will resolve itself in time, but those suffering from Graves may vacillate between hyper- and hypothyroidism. The point is that Graves is an autoimmune disease, and treatment involves healing the immune system and the whole body through dietary and lifestyle changes and in some cases thyroid medication.

Elaine Moore was diagnosed with Graves' disease and, following her doctor's advice, rushed into radioiodine ablation (killing the thyroid cells with radioactive iodine). She is now permanently hypothyroid and dependent on supplemental thyroid hormone. She states that she has never felt right since and that Graves' disease was preferable.

Moore cautions people about the quick-fix options recommended by allopathic medicine and provides alternative treatments and nutritional protocols that work with the body, not against it. Treating Graves' through poisoning or removal of the thyroid should be a last resort, and these options do not even address the autoimmune component that causes not only thyroid disorders but a host of other physical ailments.

While the emphasis on this book is Graves' disease, Moore write about all aspects of thyroid health and disease. This is not a book you read, but one that you study. It is heavy in medical terminology, so if you're looking for an easy read, you'll be frustrated. But I can't recommend it highly enough for learning the most you can about this disease as it is quite comprehensive. The chapters are:

1. The Graves' Legacy
2. The Autoimmune Nature of Graves' Disease
3. Engine and Fuel: The Thyroid and Its Hormones
4. Graves' Ophthalmopathy, Dermopathy and Acropachy
5. The Diagnosis of Graves' Disease
6. Autoantibodies and Autoimmune Diseases Associated with GD
7. Why Me? Genetic and Non-Genetic Influences
8. Allopathic Treatment of Graves' Disease
9. The Alternative Medical Approach to Treating Graves' Disease
10. Special Considerations in Pregnancy, Children and Teens
11. Hypothyroidism Associated with Graves' Disease
12. Anecdotes and Testimonies of Graves' Disease Patients

Additional information includes a glossary, notes, resources, national and international organizations, individual web sites and bulletin boards, and an excellent index.

Caveat: Moore advises against the use of iodine as a nutritional supplement as do many doctors. However, the issue of iodine supplementation in treating the thyroid is extremely controversial and should be carefully and thoroughly studied by those with thyroid-related disorders.

4-0 out of 5 stars For a scientific mind
This is a very detailed book, almost like a textbook.I have a biochemistry background and it is even a little difficult for me.I have not finished yet but it has more info about the disease than I have been able to find anyplace else.Even the medical school library.

3-0 out of 5 stars Perplexfully pleased...
Interesting to a point, but way too technical for the average individual - like me.I was hoping for more straight talk and less medical gargin.Though, the diet information was very helpful, I found myself getting frustrated and bored with the medical terminology.I'm still looking for a book that concentrates on more natural ways to control my GD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Graves Disease: A Practical Guide, by E. Moore
This book is fantastic.It is not a watered down, pandering talk about the subject, but it is a good source of knowledge.I wish my endocrinologist knew this much about the topic of Graves Disease.It is a bit advanced in some places, but many terms are defined and the author assumes that the reader is motivated, but not a medical student.You will probably have to spend some time memorizing terms and looking up some information for complete understanding, but it is all here.

The author also discribes current, past, and also nontraditional treatments and solutions to Graves Disease.There are good chapters and paragraphs that introduce information in a simple and practical way, but there are also chapters with all the details and confusing terminology that will frustrate some readers.I believe that no matter what your level of medical understanding, you will get something of value out of this book.It has definitely given me confidence and hope, especially since I do not trust the doctors who say it is easiest to simply irradiate the thyroid and take a pill a day for the rest of your life... I don't think anything is THAT EASY... This book discusses other options.Check it out-- you owe it to your thyroid.Scotty/Sioux City

Product Description

From patient advocate and author of Living Well with Hypothyroidism Mary J. Shomon, here is a holistic roadmap for diagnosis, treatment and recovery for the millions of people suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism.

There are an estimated 3 million-plus Americans suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism, and patient advocate Mary J. Shomon will guide them through the diagnosis and the wide-ranging treatments available. Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism are the result of the thyroid gland being overactive. This gland controls the body's metabolism, so people afflicted with the disorder can suffer from symptoms such as significant weight loss, fatigue, muscular weakness, and rapid heartbeat, among others. In addition to conventional treatments, this resource uniquely highlights holistic treatments, and through case studies and testimonials from patients and doctors, presents an honest look at the lifestyles and choices of people living with these conditions.

Shomon presents the reader with a comprehensive resource that spans from diagnosis to treatment to life after treatment. She goes beyond the conventional advice of other books, utilizing patient anecdotes and, as a fellow thyroid disease patient, her own experience. Her extensive network of experts—from conventional physicians to alternative practitioners—allows for a wide range of treatment options. In addition, a comprehensive Appendix serves as a fantastic resource for patients seeking treatment and additional advice.

The first edition of Living Well With Hypothyroidism (2/2000) started with a first printing of 7,500 copies and has now sold over 100,000 in the US. Shomon's The Thyroid Diet hit the New York Times extended bestseller list.

Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients' needs.

Barbara Bush brought attention to the plight of Graves' disease patients, announcing that she was suffering from it when she was First Lady.

This book has some good info about the disease. The title tells it, the doctor never told me about diet what not to eat at all.

Thus far my wife says she is very pleased with the info in this book.She says she is learning many good things that will help her in future.

2-0 out of 5 stars Marginally helpful
I didn't find this book terribly useful. I was recently diagnosed with Grave's disease, and it's not something I had come in contact professionally. That meant, I wanted a lot of info, quickly.

I started with the internet, and then was recommended this book. I found the book had a definite bias against RAI. That's all well and good. Some folks don't have that heavy of symptoms, and don't need it. Unfortunately, the author does not spare a chance to rail against the use of RAI, in every section of the book. After a while, it is tiresome to read about it.

If you know nothing about hyperthyroidism, and it's various flavors, this book is good in describing that. It will help you sort your symptoms, and help you ask your doc questions.

The author spends a lot of time on holistic methods. I have to state I have a bias against a lot of natural treatment options. If it helps you, that's great. I have seen a lot of patients spend money and time on things that didn't, though. I suppose it's a good section if you are looking for that, but it wasn't that useful to me, with my very severe symptoms.

There was also a large theme on pregnancy and fertility. That could be useful to folks in that situation, but not something I will ever be worrying about. I can't imagine everyone that has this is on the road to motherhood.

In all, the book is okay, but there is nothing in there you can't google up. If you are already medically savvy, I would say skip it, because there will be nothing in there you don't already know. It is not an unbiased source.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than an appointment with your endocrinologist!
When my symptoms lead to a hyperactive thyroid, I purchased this book.As the tests came back, I was diagnosed with Graves disease.Every person diagnosed should have this book! The information is comprehensive, and is broken down to make the complicated information easily understandable.EXCELLENT! Reading it prior to my first appt. with an endocrinologist, helped me understand what he was saying, and helped me prepare for the appointment and arrive with a list of questions. ... Read more

This book helped me understand what was happening to my eyes.It would have been nice if it was in bigger letters though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great information on Graves Eye Disease!
I too have been recently diagnosed with Graves eye disease and was left very frustrated as to what I could do to help after leaving an opthamologist's office that supposedly specialized in this.This book lists things we can do to help this condition and stop aggravating - my Dr. didn't tell me to quit using Visine among numerous things.I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for answers and ways to be proactive in their own treatment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Very good book about the mysteries of Graves & that pesky thyroid. Easy to understand, with lots of alternative therapies and tips for making life with Graves eye disease easier. The stories of actual patients were very moving...Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars So Helpful!
This book was very helpful to me as a newly diagnosed patient with Graves Ophthalmopathy. I had so many unanswered questions after my dr's appointment and sitting down to read this book really helped me out. I learned many ways to help myself and whether or not my dr was doing all he could. I would highly recommend this book to others who have questions or just want to learn more.

Product Description
"Graves' Disease, In Our Own Words" takes the reader on a unique journey through the disease's many complexities. Personal accounts offer insights into both the physical and emotional sides of Graves'. Both the experts and other Graves' patients try to validate these feelings with articles on diagnosis, treatment, and healthful living with Graves' disease (hyperactive thyroid). Over eighteen top Endocrinologists, pharmacists and other experts on Graves’ disease, make the information in this book, accurate and up to date with the latest information on Graves’ disease and its treatments.

Over seven years of research on common questions asked, and answers provided by the National Graves’ Disease Foundation’s board of medical advisors, trained facilitators, as well as answers from the top Endocrinologists, at the major medical and teaching hospitals, ensures what is provided is medically accurate, and is often done in a layperson’s terms so it is understandable by those with no or little medical understanding.

The authors contacted the medical professionals for a full edit when they wrote the chapters to ensure that the information was correct and current and what was on the cutting edge for treatment of Graves’ disease.

A full bibliography and recommended reading list is provided to help newly diagnosed find accurate information on Graves’ disease.Unfortunately recent studies show that a full 80% of medical related web sites provide wrong or inaccurate information."Graves’ Disease In Our Own Words", takes the worry out of finding reputable, and medically reliable information.

At the last American Thyroid Association meeting, they provided a lecture on information and misinformation on thyroid disease. The lecture was titled "The Good The Bad And The Ugly" The National Graves’ Disease Foundation was listed as one of the best sources of information for Graves’ disease.The National Graves’ Disease Foundation, and their medical board of advisors fully endorse this book. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Light Reading
This book is fairly light reading.It would not satisfy those who desire more technical information.A large part of this book attempts to connect the reader to the personal experiences of fellow patients.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment
Graves' Disease In Our Own Words, by Jake George and Nancy Patterson, was a disappointment. I expected a great deal more. I hoped that a book endorsed by a national organization on Graves' disease would provide fairly up-to-date information, but this book has outdated information, and a number of weak and scanty sections.

Overall, it left me with more questions than answers, and even contradicted information I've received from my endocrinologist, who is considered top in his field.

I'd suggest Ridha Arem's Thyroid Solution, Elaine Moore's book on Graves' disease, or Sara Rosenthal's books before I'd recommend this one to others.

3-0 out of 5 stars another kind of bias
Jake did a fairly lousy job in this book which contains many of wrong information. He went into the other extreme of bias from that of Elaine Moore in her book Graves Disease: a practical guide. While Elaine tends to promote ATD for long time use to achieve remission, Jake tends to lead all patients into radical treatment such as RAI and surgery.

Many clinical trials have pointed out that ATD has modest rate of remission rate for Graves. However, Jake tends to ignore the current medical finding in his book. Instead, he tends to use some out of dated information about remission rate with ATD, which might completely dismiss the hope for remission on ATD. This kind of bias might lead patient to choose radical treatment for Graves from very beginning. Though clinical studies have shown safety of RAI and surgery, non-invasive treatment should always be promoted first.

Personally, I would recommand neither Jake George's book nor Elain Moore's book to any of Graves patients thought Jake did a a bit better job than Elaine. Instead, I would suggest whoever had a diagnosis of Graves to search in Medline for more accurate information for treatment of Graves.

4-0 out of 5 stars Saved me mountains of worry!!
After being diagnosed with GD my doctor wanted to immediately perform RAI although I didn't have an enlarged gland. I knew nothing about the disease and was scared. My intuition told me there may be another way. This book taught me all I needed to know and gave me the insight and courage to persuade my doctor to let me try PTU first. In Our Own Words confirmed from the start that aggressive treatment wasn't always necessary. I took PTU for only 3 months and responded so well I am now in remission. However, I learned from the book the serious nature of GD and how to work closely with the doctor and lab results. IT's an on going journey. This book served as an important first navagational tool. An update on my condition 6/25/04: I had a recurrance of all hyper symptoms after only one month remmission. I opted to try PTU again, still with good results in bringing down my T4 but I'm constatantly juggling the dose. I still sense this is the way to go for me, but I get discouraged. Iwill look at some of the other suggested books on the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful and informative!
I have Graves disease. Having said that, I decided to read absolutely everything I could find that has been written about this disease.The other books I read presented the technical and medical information very well. This book presented not only that technical information in a very understandable way, but it also presented information regarding the impact(other than on the body) that this disease can have. This extra information is what sets this book apart. When I told my endocrinologist thatsomeone should write a book solely about Graves disease, he said, "why? It is a very straightforward disease."Wrong! This disease is not straightforward at all! (I am going to send my copy of this book to him!) This book is very very helpful! Thank you! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars a valuable PART of the graves patient's library
This is NOT THE ONLY BOOK a graves patient should have in their library. This is ONLY ONE perspective and to truly get the best treatment, I think it's important to consider all treatment measures before making the best decisions. This book covers the struggles the patient has to go through and it covers the fact that there are OPTIONS... it's not a cut and dry experience. It also covers traditional vs. alternative methods. BUT the reader must understand Graves is DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE and this book doesn't mean that alternative is the way to go or not to go... it's just a perspective in Graves Treatment from a patient's point of view. It does provide info based on experience and for many Graves patients it provides relief from the "I AM THE ONLY ONE" syndrome. But I would also recommend purchasing medical books, books that cover both eastern, western, traditional AND non-traditional methods of treatment.

5-0 out of 5 stars The author clarifies a misconception.
I am pleased to have this opportunity to dialogue about my book and respond to reader comments. Specifically, I would like to address the misconception that my book offers a "cure" for Graves' disease. I am a 50 year-old woman who after years of misdiagnosis was finally diagnosed in 1991 with Graves' disease and Hashimoto's (chronic hypothyroidism and an autoimmune disease).I received standard U.S. treatment, radioactive iodine.To my dismay, this did not make me "better".I grew to understand that healing takes time and calls for a look at causes and not just the alleviation of symptoms.I stopped looking for a quick fix-there is no quick fix for chronic illness.Dr. Christiane Northrup says, "There is a difference between healing and curing.Healing is a natural process and is within the power of everyone.Curing, which is what doctors are called upon to do, usually consists of an external treatment and medication or surgery is used to mask or eliminate symptoms.This external treatment doesn't necessarily address the factors that contribute to the symptoms in the first place.Healing goes deeper than curing and must always come from within." I wrote this book as a part of my healing journey. It is a book I wish had existed when I was first diagnosed, feeling so vulnerable, overwhelmed, confused and alone. In my book, I explain Graves', offer practical tips on locating physicians and managing one's health care as well as address the many complementary therapies and offer help in finding practitioners.My hope is that my book will help others in their quest for wellness, their healing journey.

2-0 out of 5 stars Healing Options
I bought this book in an attempt to learn more about new options in Grave's treatments.I assumed by the title of the book, that Ms. Flax found a way of conquering Graves. Unfortunately "Healing Options" tells the story of her continual struggle with Graves.While it is a true representation of a chronic illness, it is neither an uplifting or comforting story. Ms. Flax covers the current Western methods of treatment. She does this by offeringexamples that illustrate the downside of each treatment.It is difficult to accept the alternative treatment methods she promotes (i.e.: massage, herbs, meditation).She was not originally treated with any of these methods and it is uncertain whether her outcome would have been better or worse. For me, the valuable information Ms. Flax provides is over-shadowed by her depressing and sad biographical narrative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Healing Options: A Report On Graves' Disease Treatments
I highly recommend it to individuals with Graves' disease as well as their family members, health care givers, and therapists. Having recently been diagnosed with Graves' disease I found the book very informative andhelpful.Giving a list of the symptoms as well as the different types oftreatment for Graves' and actual stories of those with the disease. Specifically, the author.Especially since my doctor didn't provide mewith any information.It explained muscle weakness as well as othersymptoms/side effects of Graves' disease.

Kate Flax's informative book covers all aspects of Graves' Disease,from its onset, through treatment choices, to living the rest of your life as fully as possible.The main thrust of the book, for me, was that theresponsibility for successful healing lies mainly in the control of thepatient.It is up to the patient to find out about all the possibilitesfor healing and to then make as informed a choice as possible.This booknot only helps sort out all of the medical mumbo jumbo, but it also isextremely helpful in dealing with the emotional ramifications of thisdiagnosis.I highly recommend this book. ...

7. Antibodies that Cause Thyroid Diseases and Symptoms

Asin: B0027P88GY
Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan
Editorial Review

Product Description
The most common cause of thyroid disorders in industrialized countries including the U.S. is autoimmune thyroid disease. The disease process is caused by thyroid antibodies, also called auto-antibodies sent from the immune system that mistakenly recognize the thyroid gland an an intruder or invader in the body.

Over time, thyroid autoimmunity causes hormone imbalance resulting in either hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).

In this 6,545word ebook, I have endeavored to provide a study resource on the subject of thyroid antibodies, including my perspective and experience as an autoimmune thyroid disease patient with hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Subjects addressed in the chapters, include descriptions of these thyroid antibodies and how they are blood-tested for, to detect developing or overt thyroid diseases. An important question also discussed, is that of whether or not symptoms of thyroid disease can occur as a result of thyroid antibodies, before hormone levels become abnormal (short answer - "yes").

I, Jim Lowrance - the author served as Thyroid Health Editor for BellaOnline.com from March 2008 to May 2009 and have written over 100 general health articles for Suite101.com, where I have received Editor's Choice Awards.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great resource!
True to its title, "Healing Options" brings those with thyroid disease the good news that they have many options beyond radiation, surgery, and drugs-options that can change their mindset from one of  "chronic illness" to one of  "chronic wellness."  This book was probably thought to be way out on the fringe when it first was published. Now in its second edition, at a time when alternative therapies are increasingly acknowledged and accepted, Kate Flax's book is an incredibly helpful and encouraging resource. Anyone with Graves/Hashimoto's should read this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Read the reviews and save your money.
It's OK as far as it goes, but it IS after all, only one person's account of her experience.Otherwise, having been given a mildly borderline diagnosis "possible Graves", I quickly figured out that going on the internet would probably give me more information from which to make my own decisions about what is, after all, my (as opposed to the medical industry) body.If you do feel the need to buy this book, do so.Otherwise, read the reviews, go on the internet, and save your money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly, a Gift of Strength and Hope
As a newly diagnosed patient, this is a book I need in my life. I am so grateful to have found it. Not only is this book informative with a terrific index, glossary, and resource section, but heartfelt and easy to read besides. Kate Flax's personal excursion to wellness is truly inspiring and gives me the strength and hope to make that path mine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good information, lousy presentation
Readers looking for books on Graves' Disease have few choices, so anything on the subject is welcome, especially if you are newly diagnosed.While Kate Flax's empathy and genuine desire to help others comes through on most pages, the book is a muddle of poor punctuation, listless writing, careless spelling errors (example: spelling Dr. Andrew Weil "Dr. Wile"), and generally could have benefited from the work of a proofreader or copyeditor.Flax writes that she is dyslexic, but surely someone could have read the manuscript before it was printed? The errors, which abound on every page, distracted this reader from an otherwise valuable and informative book. Despite the protestations of Natalie Goldberg and Anne Lamott, both of whom are mentioned in Flax's acknowledgments and both of whom have encouraged thousands of fledgling writers, not everyone is a writer. At the very least, this book proves that certainly not everyone is a proofreader.This book feels like a manuscript-length post in an online support group. The errors in form reflect poorly on the accuracy of the information contained in the book. If you are the kind of person who corrects misspellings on billboards, this book will drive you nuts and is best to be avoided. If you're not this kind of reader, you may find the contents comforting and helpful.

This book is the Thyroid Bible
I learned everything I needed to know about thyroid disease not just Graves' disease in this book. I learned how the thyroid works, how to be a good self-advocate, how to find my doctor, how to talk to my doctor, how to include complementary treatments into my healing, how to choose my treatments, and some very personally important information on women and pregnancy and children and thyroid disease. My husband also read the book. He too found it helpful in understanding my "off " behavior, which is currently, thank goodness, under control since adding T3 into my T4 medication and making the time to take care of myself now. Thank you Ms. Flax for your research and caring. I am a new woman. ... Read more

Product Description
Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with carotid disease representing an important contributory risk factor. This book offers comprehensive coverage of the pathogenesis and management of carotid disease with specific focus on the role imaging has to play in the early recognition of symptomatic and asymptomatic disease as well as the treatment of the developed condition. Technological advances in imaging modalities now allow detailed analysis of the disease progression, the prediction of critical events leading to a stroke, as well as the identification of the most effective surgical or other interventional treatments. This book should be read by neurologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons and radiologists involved in the care of patients with carotid disease, and also by researchers involved in the development of new therapeutic techniques and drugs.Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with carotid disease representing an important contributory risk factor.
