**IMPORTANT TO READ: the "USED" books are NOT the most recent updated revision book, even if it automatically shows the new cover since it's the same ISBN. Neither are "COLLECTIBLES". You have to order what shows ABOVE THE "used" or "collectibles" to receive the NEW UPDATED REVISION i.e. either softback or hardcover.

Now available--the UPDATED REVISION of the WORLD-RENOWNED CLASSIC for HYPOTHYROID PATIENTS, NO MATTER THE CAUSE. This patient-to-patient book has changed lives all over the world and can you, too. In both softcover and hardcover---your choice.

  1. DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU MAY BE POORLY TREATED FOR YOUR HYPOTHYROID CONDITION (while your doctor says you are normal or it’s something else)??

Besides a new cover, there are now revised updates scattered throughout this acclaimed book alongside what was already life-changing information and still there! Many product names have been updated. There are exciting new, improved, and added details to both the adrenal chapters, alongside the adrenal treatment gold already in there. There are scattered revisions throughout nearly every chapter based on all we have learned...whether in a single sentence, paragraph, or sections. Many URL's have been updated. More details are included in the foods and supplements chapter alongside all the original details. There is new formatting. And of course, all the tried and true information that has changed lives.


  • The TSH lab test and its ridiculous “normal” range is a complete failure for diagnosis and treatment.
  • T4-only medications like Synthroid or Levothyroxine result in lingering hypothyroid symptoms...sooner or later...
  • A large percentage of patients on T4, or held hostage to the TSH lab test no matter what meds they are on, end up with fatigue, the need to nap, adrenal problems, poor levels of iron, B12 or vitamin D, depression, rising cholesterol or blood pressure, etc.
  • Details on a far better treatment protocol that has been there all along, and it’s PATIENTS who have figured out HOW TO GET WELL AGAIN.

Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed. became a thyroid patient activist in 2002 after a complete turnaround with the use of desiccated thyroid and correcting debilitating issues which plagued her after T4-only use. As a messenger of what patients have learned all over the world, she is adamant that thyroid patients (no matter the cause of their hypothyroid state) become informed to begin the process of change.

She is also the author of the newest book Hashimoto’s: Taming the Beast.

Everything about this book is right on, and it's no wonder it's called the bible of successful thyroid treatment. Janie A. Bowthorpe has compiled detailed information and reports from patients all over the world about successful treatment. In other words, this is not someone's "opinion". It's about the real live experiences of patients, and that is powerful. It explains why so many of us have continued symptoms if we're on Synthroid or other T4 meds, or if we have been dosed by the lab test called the TSH. It explains why desiccated thyroid has changed lives, plus how we can fall into adrenal fatigue, low B12, low iron, high RT3, and a variety of vitamin and mineral deficiencies thanks to T4 meds and the TSH lab test. Two of the chapters give detailed patient information about adrenal fatigue (low cortisol) and what patients have done to treat it. One chapter is on Hashimotos disease in detail, plus another about supplements and foods. She addresses the problem patients have had with doctors for decades, and how to approach them. She gives ideas on how to find better doctors, and where to find good patient groups. She helps you understand how to read your lab results, and even which labs patients have found to be critically important. I honestly can't recommend a thyroid book more than this one if you want to feel really good again. It's THE book to get!

The website connected with this book as well as the book itself, has saved my life. I had been on synthetic  thyroid medication since a thyroidectomy at 13. Over thirty years later and not having felt good for over a  decade, I switched to an internist that finally agreed that natural thyroid was what I needed. I also took a list of blood work with me that was listed in the book and found deficient in vitamin d. That vitamin alone has lowered  my blood pressure. The book is an easy read with other resources to check out. If you have a thyroid issue or know someone who does get this book now.

I urge anyone who has been hypothyroid and not feeling "right" to read this. It is like reading your own story-Read the author's website also, and do whatever she says. Then do not turn back.

I've actually only read the first book (not the revised one), but it was most helpful in determining that I should be off Synthroid (or synthcrap) and onto Natural dessicated thyroid (which I was first given when I was diagnosed at 6 weeks of age). It also goes into detail about what your symptoms are, what not to take with your thyroid (ie citrus juices, iron) and what may help you reach your maximum potential (ie - most thyroid users are anemic and need iron). This book helps everyone, and I thoroughly recommend her website. Most doctors now do not "speak" thyroid, and hence, order the wrong tests, or tell you that it is all in your head (Thanks for following the Hippocratic Oath Docs). This book helps you realize it isn't in your head, and helps you figure out what you need. A MUST HAVE!!!!

Excellent book on hypothyroid and related problems. How to recognize all of the symptoms and how to talk to your doctor about them, which is very important because most doctors use a one-size-fits all approach with Synthroid (levothyroxine, etc.) to treat. This book discusses the importance of using Natural Desiccated Thyroid Hormone (NDT) as an alternative and gives tons of information and patient results to back it up. If you are not on NDT and your symptoms are getting worse, even though your doctor is telling you your TSH blood test is in the normal range ... YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

I find it interesting that all of the "bad" reviews are anonymous, especially the one claiming to be a medical professional hurt by the recommendations (and only fixed when they listened to their doctor). If conventional treatment had been working for you, then you would have never tried alternative options. So that review rings false for me. As for me, I have been following the blog for a few months and finally ordered the book. I cannot tell you how asking for (or ordering my own) lab work to pinpoint actual problems (that my doctor refused to look at), has helped me. Following the recommendations (all backed up by actual research and patient experience) has kept me sane & on the road to recovery. It is a long process due to the length of time conventional medicine left me "fine" according to the doctor. I wasn't "fine"!

This is an extremely dangerous book. T3/T4 combos are ok for the very few who have problems converting. Take it from me. Her protocol put me in the hospital three times until I wised up and listened to my doctor. I felt "better" because I was on speed basically. Put me into serious cardiac arrythmia. I'm a medical professional and I'm embarrassed because I should have known better. Your doctor went to school for 7-14 years to learn this. I'd listen to him/her. There is  no conspiracy against treating your thyroid.
