A Practical Guide for the Newly Diagnosed to Reduce Your Symptoms, Increase Your Energy and Redeem Your Life
One in eight women will develop thyroid problems during her lifetime, while one out of six women over the age of 60 will suffer from an underactive thyroid. The most common cause of an underactive thyroid is the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and despite growing awareness, many sufferers remain undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or missed altogether.
Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is scary, often confusing and usually overwhelming. Sufferers struggle daily to live productive lives despite debilitating symptoms, including fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, bouts of depression, muscle and joint aches and pains, hair loss and weight gain to name a few. Many doctors focus on treating the symptoms of the underactive thyroid, while the underlying reason for the autoimmune response is often neglected or completely ignored.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis provides a practical guide to sufferers on strategies they can implement to identify root causes, reduce symptoms and redeem their health and energy. Adele du Rand provides a framework consisting of nine pillars, including lifestyle, diet, stress, medication, supplementation and toxins, to help sufferers make small changes to their lifestyles which make a big impact on their lives. This book contains everything Adele du Rand wishes someone had told her when she was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. It is a must-read for every diagnosed patient who wants to take charge of their health, reclaim their energy and redeem their life.
Adele du Rand is a patient advocate, autoimmune health coach and a speaker who focuses on helping people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions. She was diagnosed with the autoimmune thyroid condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, in 2015, after years of struggling with debilitating symptoms. Now she helps others who have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis to reclaim their health, energy and life.
