Thyroid Debacle

In Dr. Eric Balcavage’s eye-opening new book The Thyroid Debacle, readers will discover why hypothyroidism is not just a random dysfunction of the thyroid gland as outlined for decades by the medical model, but often the result of underlying cellular stressors rarely addressed. Stress as the result of chemical, physical, emotional and microbial stressors from major life events, the environment, poor nutrition, infections, demanding physical activity and many more, can all trigger chronic cellular stress impacting thyroid health. The result of this cellular stress? A condition called Cellular Hypothyroidism; a concept rarely discussed… until now!
