How to Heal Hashimoto's: An Integrative Road Map to Remission (Paperback)
Most people are familiar with the common hypothyroid symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, sensitivity to cold, hair loss, and constipation. But what many people don’t seem to understand is that many Hashimoto’s patients also have anxiety and depression, acid reflux, blood sugar imbalances like hypoglycemia and insulin resistance, intestinal permeability, anemia, food intolerances, and much more.
This is not coincidence. It is all caused by repeated patterns of one system of the body breaking down and bringing other systems down with it. This causes vicious cycles that lead to the breakdown of the gut, the brain, the adrenals, the stomach, the gall bladder, the liver and every other major organ in the body.
How to Heal Hashimoto’s offers a practical, easy-to-follow approach that treats the whole body, by figuring out what is breaking down and then developing a plan for fixing it. Using an autoimmune diet, lifestyle changes like meditation and qi gong, and other natural interventions, Marc Ryan shows you how to transform these vicious cycles into positive healing momentum —thereby allowing the body to return to balance.

"There are a lot of books on hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, but How to Heal Hashimoto’s takes one of the most unique approaches to helping people with this condition get into remission. While many people with Hashimoto’s know that it’s essential to have a healthy gut in order to have a healthy immune system, most people with this condition don’t know why it can be important to address other areas, such as the spleen, kidneys, and even the lungs. Marc focuses more on Chinese medicine than any other book I’ve read on Hashimoto’s (and I’ve read a lot of them!). I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis."
