Stop the Thyroid Madness: a Patient Revolution Against Decades of  Inferior Thyroid Treatment by Janie Bowthorpe

book review by Jeffrey Dach MD

Written by a non-professional, this is the most important thyroid book to come out in the last few years.  The book is timely because of two factors:

Number (1)

For decades, mainstream medicine has been guilty of mismanaging the low thyroid condition.

Number (2)
Patients are now empowered by the internet to collectively share notes and devise their own strategies for thyroid testing and treatment.

Empowered E-Patients

One of these empowered e-patients is Janie Bowthorpe, owner of  the Stop-the-thyroid-Madness-blog. In her book, she describes her ordeal with years of crippling fatigue, all the while her doctors told her "the labs were normal", and insisting she was adequately treated with Synthroid, the mainstream T4 thyroid medication.  Apparently she was not adequately treated.

Switched from Synthroid to Armour

Eventually after many years of needless suffering, Janie visited an internet thyroid message board and discovered information about natural thyroid medication called Armour.  Empowered with this new information, Janie switched over from the Synthroid to the Armour, and experienced a dramatic recovery, and has been well ever since.

Janie's Amazing Journey

The first section of her book chronicles this amazing journey, and later sections are the condensed wisdom from her blog and message boards. Important chapters in the book deal with the superior clinical results of Armour natural thyroid compared to Synthroid, the unreliability of the TSH test, and the issue of adrenal fatigue in relation to the low thyroid condition.  Also discussed are the role of Ferritin and Iodine.

A Very Important Book

Stop the Thyroid Madness is unquestionably a very important book which will influence mainstream medical treatment for the low thyroid condition.  Janie's activism has galvanized a revolution in medical care, with thousands of patients demanding superior  thyroid care described in her book.  I applaud Janie Bowthorpe's book,  and wish her strength and good fortune in her continuing efforts to reform the mainstream medical system.
