Is Your Thyroid Healthy? It may only be a small, butterfly-shaped gland located near the base of your neck, but it has a powerful impact on almost everything that goes on in your body. If you are feeling sluggish, find yourself gaining (or losing) weight, have difficulty sleeping, or notice your hair is thinning, your periods are irregular or you’re anxious or depressed, your thyroid may be to blame. Your thyroid affects your brain, gut, skin, bones, muscles and more, and if it’s out of whack you may experience any number of symptoms.

In The Thyroid Cure, you’ll learn how to get the right diagnosis and what medications will work best to normalize thyroid levels. Plus, discover lifestyle solutions that will help you manage your symptoms, from diet tips and the best food choices to smart over-the-counter supplements and stress management techniques. It’s time to take control of your thyroid and start feeling healthier today.
