Scientific proof is the platform upon which an effective treatment plan is build. Without proof we are subjected to speculation and quackery.

Reviewing articles from over 70 medical journals and medical texts, Dr. Haskell clearly explains the cause of Hashimotos.

If you think that thyroid antibodies are attacking, inflaming and destroying your thyroid you have been brainwashed with misinformation.

"Hashimotos is not the cause of thyroid inflammation, it is the result..." and to effectively treat Hashimotos and to reduce thyroid antibodies you must treat the cause which is thyroid inflammation.

Illness doesn't happen overnight. You don't suddenly wake up one morning with Hashimotos. Every single disease develops in stages over years and even decades.

Hashimotos is no different. In Hope For Hashimotos, Dr. Haskell describes in detail the step-by-step development of thyroid inflammation which leads to Hashimotos and "if we understand the origin of a disease and treat this origin, then the condition will recede, will reverse itself."

Yet with Hashimotos, this reversal can be challenging. Here's the reason why.

Most people with Hashimotos have not felt well for a long time, maybe 10-20 years. They've been to several physicians and even tried alternative medicine. But then one day someone finally does a blood test to find positive thyroid antibodies. Now they have the diagnosis of Hashimotos.
They think this must explain the reason why they feel the way they do and they fall under the illusion that all their problems and symptoms are due to Hashimotos.

In medicine we are blinded by linear thinking. Here is the diagnosis and here is the pill or supplement or psychological origin.

I have Hashimotos. Give me anything to make it go away, and we grasp for straws. We want to believe in something, anyone who claims they know of a cure.

People are desperately searching for something they haven't been able to find. No wonder there are one million google searches for Hashimotos each and every day.

And what are people searching for?

They want to know why they have Hashimotos and what they can do because their physicians are ignorant and don't have the answers.

But unless you know the science and research behind Hashimotos you will gather a lot of misinformation and come in contact with a lot of quacks offering a single approach or product.

And you fall into the trap of these wolves wanting something from you at your expense, often selling products that can do more harm than good.

To treat Hashimotos, to reduce thyroid inflammation and thyroid antibodies, requires a broad approach using specific supplements, nutrition and often pharmacy.

And even then, even when the person's thyroid inflammation is lowered, there are often other contributing factors causing symptoms unrelated to their thyroid antibodies. These can be low progesterone, low cortisol, poor gut ecology, a chronic infection such as chronic sinusitis, and many others.

This is why it is an illusion for the person with Hashimotos to think that their feeling unwell is solely to the thyroid antibodies. This is often a difficult concept for people to acknowledge.

Dr. Haskell's book is evidence of an effective, holistic approach, incorporating the best from both alternative and orthodox medicine, the way we all chronic conditions should be handled.

Every suggestion for the treatment of Hashimotos is broken down into 3 phases. It is an honest, science based, and practical account of how to treat Hashimotos by reducing thyroid inflammation.

We suggest before you consider purchasing this book that you view a series of videos we've produced on the subject of Hashimotos. These can be viewed on our site at http://www.hopeforhashimotos.com/hashimotos-video-series/

Meet the Author

Dr. Alexander Haskell is a graduate of The National College of Natural Medicine after completing his pre-med at San Francisco State University, and has been a licensed Naturopathic Physician for the last 27 years.

A number of years ago his lectures on thyroid hormones given primarily to groups of women along the East Coast were met with great appreciation and enthusiasm yet a cry was often heard from the audience, a cry of frustration about their condition, Hashimotos.

With great encouragement from his community and followers Dr. Haskell went to work. His research pulled articles from all over the world, many of them translated into English, to finally put the pieces together. He brought this research back into his clinic and put it into practice.

"It worked. I mean I was kind of surprised, but then not surprised because all the steps required to reduce thyroid inflammation and thyroid antibodies made sense. But I must admit that every time I get a lab result back to see that a patient's antibodies are going down, I am still thrilled."

We have produced a series of videos on Hashimotos which covers some of the same material from Dr. Haskell's book. Follow this link http://www.hopeforhashimotos.com/hashimotos-video-series/

"You helped me so much, right at a time, when I didn't know how to deal with my antibodies anymore! Thanks again!" Katrina M.

"I am so impressed that I writing to let you know this is the best book on Thyroid that I have read in my 10 years of reading anything I can find about thyroid problems." Gail A.

"Just want you to know how much both my husband and I appreciate the treatment that I am receiving from you; I had so much pain before we began, and it is such a relief to have most of it gone. Before, I could barely get in and out of the car, or even stand up after being seated. We both wondered if I was going to end up completely disabled! It seemed that there was no answer. I was so disheartened to have had all the faulty treatment from previous doctors, that I just didn't know where to turn. I had searched the internet diligently, but was unable to find anyone that seemed to know how to properly treat the thyroid, and also the treatment of other hormones. I knew there must be someone. I believe that God answered my prayers in directing me to your site." Debbie V.

There are many others but we are running out of character space...

    Thyroid suffers check out this book

    My N.D./Chinese Traditional Medicine practitioner and I are working from this book. MANY people diagnosed with hypothyroid really have Hashimoto's which is an auto immune condition. Haskell explains it all and if you think medication is not quite doing it for your thyroid...this is a MUST read. I highly recommend it.
