Overview

An expert physician/ nurse team offers a practical, hands-on program to restore thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive balance-and feel better fast.

You're exhausted, and you've gained weight; you feel mentally fuzzy much of the time, and don't feel that you handle day-to-day stress as well as you once did. Worried, you visit the doctor, who orders the typical battery of tests. Two weeks later, you're assured that everything's fine.

Sound familiar? If you're one of the 33 million Americans suffering from hormone-related metabolic problems, the answer is a resounding yes. Feeling Fat, Fuzzy, or Frazzled? is the first book to expose and address the delicate, life-altering balance among the thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive hormones. This multi-gland approach-missing from other hormone-related books-can make the day-to-day difference between feeling awful and feeling good. If left untreated long-term, this imbalance can cause heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, infertility, and severe menopause.

Practical and hands-on, this book offers readers: an innovative, integrated self-care program to identify their thyroid, adrenal, or reproductive-related metabolic disorder (through easy, inexpensive, noninvasive diagnostic tests and questionnaires); a "5-day jumpstart program" to help alleviate symptoms of weight gain, low energy, or frayed nerves fast (through vitamins, minerals, and nutrition); and a long-term plan to achieve optimal health, complete with advice for finding and partnering with the right doctor.

Author Biography: Richard Shames, MD, is a founding member of the American Holistic Medical Association. Specializing in hormone treatment for over twenty-five years, Dr. Shames coaches patients nationally via www.fatfuzzyfrazzled.com and www.thyroidpower.com.

Karilee Shames, PhD, RN, is a certified clinical specialist in psychiatric nursing and a certified holistic nurse.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The inviting informality of its title masks the seriousness of the book. Thirty-three million Americans suffer from hormone-related metabolic problems; half these maladies remain undiagnosed by their doctors. Feeling Fat, Fuzzy, or Frazzled? addresses not only thyroid problems (the topic of numerous books) but also hormonal imbalance among the thyroid and the two other major endocrine glands (adrenals and sexual glands). Such imbalance is extremely common, yet even trained endocrinologists frequently ignore it. This disorder spawns weight gain, lethargy, insomnia, concentration problems, and an inability to cope with even short-term stress. If left untreated, it can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, infertility, and severe menopause. This book offers a sensible three-step program to get you back in balance.
Publishers Weekly
Readers whose chronic health conditions are due to, or worsened by, glandular imbalances may find this informative guide to pinpointing and healing hormone-related illness helpful in improving their functioning. Physician Richard Shames is a founding member of the American Holistic Medical Association, while his wife, Karilee Shames, is certified in psychiatric and holistic nursing. Their holistic view makes clear how hormonal imbalance in any one glandular system disturbs every other system. According to the Shameses, patients and their health-care providers must address each system, first targeting the areas of major disturbance, then looking at the other systems to correct secondary problems. They provide a framework that includes three different patient "Endo-Types" (the "feeling fat" thyroid-driven type; "fuzzy-thinking" sex-gland-driven type; and "fried and frazzled" adrenal-driven type) and questionnaires for readers to understand the cause of problems like unexplained weight gain, exhaustion, lack of mental focus and clarity, irritability and impatience. A three-step program then teaches readers how to address and correct glandular imbalances. Although many readers might be drawn to the book for the authors' promise of greater vitality, they may be more gratified to learn that, by restoring hormonal and glandular balance, they may be mitigating many serious health conditions, too.

    A reviewer

    Being ill for almost 2 years, getting nowhere with doctors and reading anything an everything I could get my hands on regarding thyroid and adrenal I bought this book and I am so glad I did. It is the first book, again out of many, that actually made sense to me. Thank you for writing this.

    This book comprehensively explains the effects of endocrine disorders and the balance that needs to.be maintained to feel like yourself. Very eye opening and with easy to understand metaphors that will not only help you understand the complexity of what's happening in your body but give you the ability to convey this to others. I highly recommend,

    Great overview of Hypothyroid

    The title of the book really got my attention. While I never really considered that I might have a thyroid problem, this book convinced me to look further. Sure enough, my thyroid is underactive. The book is very easy to read and understand. If you have any suspicions at all that you might have a thyroid issue, get this book

    A clear, comprehensive, practical and integrated roadmap

    It's not always easy for thyroid patients -- and our practitioners -- to understand how interrelated our hormones can be, along with their critical impact on health. Specifically, when we have a thyroid condition, the relationship to adrenal problems and our reproductive system and hormones, is critical, but it's so rarely addressed. This makes Drs. Richard and Karilee Shames' new book, 'Feeling Fat, Fuzzy or Frazzled?' particularly useful. Using their unique 'Endo-Type' categorization system, you use questionnaires and self-tests to determine which glands -- your thyroid, adrenals or reproductive glands -- are causing your primary imbalance. And then, the book helps you restore balance, help rebalance the glands, and ensure that all three types of hormones -- the 3 legs of the 'stool' metaphor that the Shames use in the book -- are all equal, and therefore able to support you without tipping over. The Shames recommend readers find a great practitioner and partner with him or her for your health care. And they dedicate an entire section of book to direct communications with practitioners -- letters you can copy and share with your practitioners or endocrinologists, and will hopefully help you get the care you need. Ideally, you'll find a great practitioner who can help you implement the program with the guidance of the Shames book. But if you need to follow a self-guided program, you will find the resources and information -- including options on where to order your own tests, and what supplements and nutrients you may need -- to pursue a self-care program. And another helpful option is that you can contact Dr. Richard Shames for a phone coaching session to help customize the program to meet your specific needs. Short-term and longer-term approaches are offered, which is especially useful when you are talking about hormones. You'll have things you can do right away, along with longer-term goals and objectives that will help you maintain improvements in your health. Concept Summaries and Action Summaries at the end of each chapter help you focus your efforts on those practical actions that can have the greatest impact on your health. Overall, Drs. Richard and Karilee Shames have achieved the near impossible - a clear, comprehensive, practical and integrated roadmap to restore and rebalance our hormones. I highly recommend the book! -- Mary Shomon, Thyroid Patient Advocate, author of 'The Thyroid Diet' and 'Living Well With Hypothyroidism'
