Graves’ disease is one of several causes of hyperthyroidism. In this book, Dr. Zaidi, a
leading endocrinologist, describes how to accurately diagnose and treat Graves’ disease
as well as other causes of hyperthyroidism.

The medical treatment of Graves’ disease has not changed in over 50 years. Sad, but true!
The standard, usual treatment with Radioactive iodine is a superficial, myopic approach.
It almost always makes you hypothyroid (underactive thyroid state). Then, you need to
be on thyroid pills for the rest of your life. In addition, radioactive iodine does not treat
the underlying root cause of Graves’ disease - autoimmune dysfunction, which continues
to smolder and easily erupts into another autoimmune disease.

Anti-thyroid drugs do not treat autoimmune dysfunction either. They provide only
temporary relief. Often, symptoms return once you stop these drugs.
Surgery also does not treat autoimmune dysfunction. It often leads to hypothyroidism
as well as many other complications.

Over the last ten years, Dr. Zaidi developed a truly breakthrough approach to get rid of Graves’ disease at its roots - autoimmune dysfunction. His patients have benefited
tremendously from this approach. Now, its time for you to learn about this
ground breaking discovery. Dr. Zaidi reveals what really causes autoimmune dysfunction that ultimately leads to Graves’ disease.

Dr. Zaidi’s revolutionary treatment strategy consists of five components:

1. A unique Diet for Graves’ disease, including original recipes
2. The link between Vitamin D deficiency and Graves’ disease
3. The connection between Graves’ disease and Vitamin B12 deficiency
4. How Stress causes Graves’ disease and Dr. Zaidi’s unique strategy to manage stress
5. The Judicious use of Anti-Thyroid drugs

Dr. Zaidi also explains: What are thyroid antibodies? What are the tests to diagnose various causes of hyperthyroidism? What causes Graves’ eye disease and what is its proper
treatment? How do you accurately diagnose and manage Graves’ disease during pregnancy?

Dr. Zaidi describes actual case studies from his clinical practice that detail his treatment
step by step and reveal how his treatment strategy actually works and saves
thyroid glands, as compared to the usual treatment approach, which destroys
thyroid glands with radioactive iodine.
