The Thyroid Sourcebook for Women PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Thyroid Sourcebook for Women free pdf Thyroid hormones are important to the functioning of a healthy body- but when the thyroid gland supplies too much, too little, or stops producing these vital hormones, many problems can occur. Women make up almost 80 percent of thyroid disorder patients- and when the thyroid gland starts to malfunction the repercussions for women are particularly serious. There has been an avalanche of new research and theories since the publication of the first edition of The Thyroid Sourcebook for Women in 1999, making a revision essential. M. Sara Rosenthal, Ph.D., the author of the successful The Thyroid Sourcebook, focuses on the thyroid's effect on the woman's body, what treatments are available (both standard and well-documented alternative therapies), and how to cope effectively with a chronic thyroid condition. The Thyroid Sourcebook for Women includes issues specifically pertaining to women's thyroid health, including menopause, pregnancy, fertility, breast health, contraception, and helping women taking charge of their health.
