Description: It's remarkable how many symptoms-large, small, and in between-are connected to your thyroid. In fact, just about every aspect of your metabolism depends on thyroid function; if your thyroid isn't working up to par, you won't be either. Healing and supporting your thyroid is one of the most important ways you can connect to your body-and one of the best ways to achieve optimal health. If you have the sinking feeling that your regular doctor is missing something, because he or she keeps insisting that you're fine, whereas you know that "fine" is the last thing you are, this program has answers for you. That's right. Even if your doctor says you don't have a thyroid problem, you very well might. It's all too sadly possible that the tests you're getting aren't accurate, your doctor is misinterpreting the results, you're being under-medicated, you're getting the wrong type of medication-or you're suffering from some combination of all those factors. Meanwhile, you're feeling lousy: exhausted, old before your time, and-since your doctor won't believe you-possibly crazy. So breathe a big sigh of relief and get ready to feel better. Because in this program, you're going to find out that you were right all along. There is something wrong with you. You do have a thyroid disorder, it can be treated, and as soon as it is, you're going to feel like a whole new person. Nourishing your thyroid can help clear away the brain fog, soothe anxiety and ease the depression, heal those achy joints and raging hormones, and help you get your sex life back. It can be the key to dropping those extra pounds and never regaining them. And yes, you'll even get your hair growing all thick and healthy-better than you've ever seen it-with clear glowing skin and boatloads of energy to boot. That's what's possible-total vibrant health and nothing less. That's what you can look forward to when your thyroid is working optimally and you're following the diet and lifestyle that supports fabulous health. Thousands of Dr. Amy Myers' patients have achieved it on her plan, and now she's offering her plan to public television viewers. Dr. Myers once practiced as an Emergency Room physician, but soon discovered conventional medicine is a one size fits all model. Her belief is that health shouldn't be viewed as a cookie cutter solution; it's more complex than that. She practices functional medicine, or personalized medicine. No two people are alike. Each of us is unique in our genetic makeup and physiology. What ultimately causes illness in one person is not the same for another, and treatment for each will therefore be different. She knows this from personal experience. Dr. Myers was once diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid dysfunction, and has the unique perspective of a patient as well as a physician. She knows that every detail of your health is interconnected, everything is a clue to your present state of health. In this program she'll helps you solve your issues based on the root cause - not simply treat the symptoms.
