Overview


You're already an expert on your thyroid symptoms. Why not become an expert on solutions? Although your doctor is an invaluable resource, taking charge of your health care is the best way to discover treatments that work, make the most of your medical appointments, and restore your thyroid balance.

Because hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and other thyroid problems affect every woman differently, The Women's Guide to Thyroid Health takes a personal approach. Together with your doctor, you'll evaluate your symptoms and use that information to create a personal treatment plan. Use this book to help interpret test results, understand your options for hormone therapy medication, manage side effects, and discover simple nutrition and lifestyle strategies that can keep you looking and feeling well. By informing yourself and partnering with your doctor, you'll get the results you are looking for.

Kathryn R. Simpson, MS, was an executive in the biotech industry when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Research led her to discover that her symptoms were caused by multiple hormonal deficiencies including low thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormone levels. She resolved all of her debilitating symptoms with bio-identical hormone supplementation. Simpson founded a specialty hormone clinic, the Simpson Foundation, to treat hormone imbalance and diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and fibromyalgia. Today, the Simpson Foundation is dedicated to endocrine research and education. Simpson is author of The Perimenopause and Menopause Workbook and The MS Solution. She lives in Santa Ynez, CA.

Foreword writer Thierry Hertoghe, MD, is a fourth-generation endocrinology expert. His great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were pioneers in early endocrinology and thyroid research. Hertoghe is author of The Hormone Solution and The Hormone Handbook.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Misdiagnosis is rampant in today's world. Maybe you don't have multiple sclerosis, maybe you don't have bladder problems, maybe you don't have arthritis, or chronic fatigue, or neuropathy… maybe it's your thyroid! So many are being treated for diseases they don't have. In today’s world, you have to do your own research. The Women’s Guide to Thyroid Health is the most informative, thorough guide to understanding the thyroid you will ever read. Discover why you are not feeling well. Kathryn Simpson has done the work; you will be the beneficiary. This is the best book explaining the thyroid that I have ever read.”
—Suzanne Somers

“This book is an excellent overview of endocrine function in women, with particular emphasis on the importance of thyroid activity. The reader will be well informed of the critical interaction between multiple bodily functions and endocrine activity. A must-read for men and women who seem to be suffering the effects of ‘normal’ aging. A hormone adjustment may result in a more enjoyable and healthy life. This work can potentially be a true life-changer for thousands of Americans.”
—Scot A. Brewster, MD, cardiac surgeon at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, CA

“In her latest book, Kathryn Simpson has brought to us a wonderful, understandable approach to thyroid dysfunction. As a neurologist and sleep disorders specialist, I am impressed how little the medical community at large investigates this common set of disorders and even more impressed with how passive therapy usually is. With this book as a guide, anyone can easily understand thyroid-related symptoms, be empowered to undergo appropriate testing, and intelligently evaluate the response to replacement therapy.”
—Victor Rosenfeld, MD, neurology department head at the Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara, CA

“For years I suffered from exhaustion, depression, weight gain, and hair loss. I tried everything I could think of—diet, prayer, positive thinking—but I just kept getting worse. I was at the end of my rope. It wasn't until I spoke to Kathryn Simpson at her clinic that I came to understand all my symptoms were due to hypothyroidism and finally got help. I started on thyroid medication and have resolved all my symptoms.”
—Betsy Covert, patient

“I was fortunate to have a doctor who implemented Kathryn Simpson’s research in his practice. I had suffered with lupus for over five years, seeing specialist after specialist, with symptoms that were getting progressively worse. After going through the testing and evaluation program, it turned out that I had a serious thyroid deficiency as well as a parathyroid disorder. After both were treated, all my symptoms resolved and have been completely gone for over a year now. It's a miracle!”
—Regina Frazier, patient
