Approximately one in three Australians suffers from many of the following symptoms: Weight problems; Sugar cravings; Mental and physical fatigue; Hair and skin problems; Forgetfulness; Depression; Anxiety. What they don't realise is that their THYROID GLAND is probably to blame. The thyroid gland controls the metabolism of the body (which plays a vital role in weight loss/gain) and influences the health of every organ. A malfunctioning thyroid can be over active (hyperthyroidism) or under active (hypothyroidism); both of which have equally devastating effects on physical and mental health. "Fat, Fatigued and Forgetful" is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to identifying your particular symptoms, determining whether you have a thyroid problem (includes simple tests you can perform at home), and then, most importantly, making changes to your diet and lifestyle and, where appropriate, exploring the complementary medicine or alternative therapies in order to treat your thyroid and reclaim your health. Real-life case studies shed light on the huge number and broad range of sufferers across Australia, and share their experiences and triumphs over the troublesome thyroid.
