Dr. Sara, who has been regularly featured here at the About.com site, has written a terrific book, with comprehensive information to help women determine how to balance what she calls the "Charlie's Angels" of hormones -- thyroid, cortisol (adrenals), and sex hormones. Building on her medical degree from Harvard, and her career as an integrative practitioner, Dr. Sara offers sound, well-researched medical information about hormone health and balance, plus nutritional, lifestyle and mind-body information from the integrative perspective, I think it's a terrific resource and addition to any thyroid patient's bookshelf.
On the thyroid front, Dr. Sara explores subclinical hypothyroidism, the role of Reverse T3, treatment with T3 and natural thyroid drugs, and many other cutting-edge and controversial thyroid issues.
More information on The Hormone Cure is available at Dr. Sara's site, TheHormoneCureBook.com. The book is available at local bookstores, and online. You can also get a free excerpt online at SaraGottfriedMD.com.
