This very informative book details the author's journey to find and be treated for this disgusting autoimmune disease which has pretty much devastated the females in her family. Detailing her experiences and learning gives credence to all she has learned and advice to readers. This is not some dry, scholarly piece which does not affect the author or reader, but is a reflexion and teaching tool for those of us who battle the conventional medical community. Where am I coming from on this? I am an RN for many years, Dx with alopecia after the birth of Thing 3, and Dx with Hashimoto's more than a year later. Despite having been diagnosed, I have had no support from the medical community during flares of the disease, and this book has shown me a better dietary way to improve quality of life for me and others. By using herself/family as examples, she has detailed for patients how to motivate busy medical practitioners to find the correct Dx and Rx for themselves, as well as demonstrating the hows and whys of determining the dietary course of action to implement change with or without the assistance of Rx medication.
