The Thyroid Debacle Book

You’ve tried everything, but you still have thyroid symptoms…

Despite seeing dozens of doctors and thyroid specialists, being treated with thyroid medication, and having “normal thyroid labs”… you still don’t feel well. Maybe you’re still exhausted, gaining weight, losing hair, and feeling depressed, foggy, or anxious.

You’re not crazy. You’re not alone. And it is not your fault

You’re simply stuck in the middle of a Thyroid Debacle.


The Hidden Cause of Thyroid Symptoms

For decades, modern medicine has misunderstood key points about thyroid physiology that has led to the prolonged suffering of millions of Americans – most importantly, that thyroid disorders are primarily caused by a dysfunctional thyroid gland. 

As a result, doctors are taught to rely on an outdated model of testing TSH and T4, and simply replacing thyroid hormone with medication, never once asking the question of what’s causing the dysfunction in the first place.

In The Thyroid Debacle, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Kelly Halderman explore thyroid disorders from a new perspective, looking to create a paradigm shift in how doctors and patients understand and approach thyroid physiology. They argue that hypothyroidism is more commonly an issue with the functioning of cells, not a problem with the thyroid gland itself, and that the key is to look at root causes rather than attempt to mask symptoms with pills.

You can feel like yourself again. This revolutionary new approach will help you understand the real cause of your thyroid symptoms so you can make informed decisions with your doctor and take back control of your health.
