Thyroid & Menopause Madness: Why It Feels Like You’re Falling Apart and What You Can Do About It by Joni Labbe
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I only made it halfway through this book.
Though I had high hopes, it fell short on every count.
I think the author probably has something to contribute to the subject, but her writing skills are lacking. The information is provided in a hodge-podge way that makes it hard to follow.
I have two science based degrees, work in the medical field, and have read more than my fair share of health-related books. So, it's not an issue of being able to grasp the information, but more an issue of the author saying too much that means nothing.
She talks about auto-immune thyroiditis or Hashimotos. She talks about the infamous "leaky gut." She mentions the danger of wheat and an overtaxed, worn-out adrenal system. Unfortunately, she's all over the place and never provides a sound logical basis for her claims that are jumbled together in a non-sensical way.
I just don't see how the average person will walk away from anything useful from this book. I know I didn't.
