    Very good book

    The book is written mostly in a medical jargon, but being a doctor I had no trouble understanding the content. Very useful information, indeed. It has changed my way of practising medicine.

    A Life-Changing Book

    This book was recommended to me by a friend, as she felt that it described the health issues that I had. The pictures that she showed me intrigued me, so I purchased the book. I found it be compelling for me, because it really had descriptions that were pertinent to me and my health. Therefore, I consider this to be a life-changing book. I am now in pursuit of resolving my thyroid issues armed with knowledge.<BR/><BR/>The author takes a hard look at the testing for hypothyroidism and the current medical model for treating it. Hypothyroidism II refers to problems with the thyroid gland that are not reflected in blood tests. He documents this point very thoroughly; and sometimes it seems that he keeps hitting the point ad nauseum. However, there is no way to read this book and not understand the need to take action (if you find yourself in this category) and how one can do so. <BR/><BR/>The documentation is taken from studies from the early 20th century and the pictures are from that era. Dr. Starr builds a case for experts in the realm of hypothyroidism whose research is currently overlooked by the medical community. (That is the reason for the older pictures, I think.) I found it credible as he explained how this oversight has allowed some health issues to rise to "epidemic" proportions.<BR/><BR/>The greatest criticism that I have for this book has to do with organization. It seemed that sometimes the author went in circles at times. The point that was being made was not obvious; and Dr. Starr took a circuitous route to make his points. <BR/><BR/>This book is a great resource and well worth reading, if you want to understand all facets of thyroid treatment. It is easily read and understood. The author did not talk over one's head; thus, making the material easy to comprehend. This book would fall into the category of alternative health, for those who may want to know.

    enlightening

    I've have spent countless hours researching hypothyroidism and yet I still learned more from this comprehensive book. References from early studies and research on the disease along with the doctor's own experiences validate its claims. My own doctor recommends this book, and I am now recommending it to friends and family. It may be more in depth than most people prefer, but it's information we should all be made aware of. I agree with Dr. Starr that this disease is epidemic. But what's worse is how it continues to be overlooked or mistreated.

    Excellent book if you are interested in your personal health and a solution, not a bandaid

    This book has opened my eyes to many ailments I see daily as a medical professional. I see so many illnesses that could be helped with the knowledge that Dr Mark Starr is sharing of the research of Dr Broda Barnes and others. It is concise. If only we could get more doctors to look at symptoms instead of the blood test readings developed in 1960's.I see so many similar symptoms of fibromyalgia with hypothyroidism type II. For years I have pondered a basis of this syndrome. I believe this is it. I also believe the possibility of reverse T3 problem with those suffering from FM.

    Historical evidence & sound science!

    This book sheds new light on hypothryoidism including it's symptoms, diagnosis, and root cause of other illnesses. If you suspect you are hypo and/or are being treated for it - read this book to find a roadmap that outlines your symptoms and connects the dots to your other issues in a way that you (or your doctor!) never thought of before. The historical pictures alone are enough to convince even a skeptic. As a medical technologist - I found Dr Starr's documented evidence and wisdom very hopeful for helping many with this problem. A book that's hard to put down - if you're looking for answers to health issues.
