Free Thyroid Seminar With Mary Shomon
I’ve read a lot of books about janky thyroids, and the one I found the most helpful was Thyroid Diet Revolution by Mary Shomon. I like to refer to it as “the really great book with the really unfortunate title.” I think Shomon did herself a disservice by giving it such a diet-y title because – as you can read in my previous review – it’s not a quick-fix “diet” book. It’s packed with really helpful information that arms the reader with plenty of details to take back to their own doctors. I found it really comforting, and it restored my optimism for different paths I could travel in trying to get my body back.
Now the author has teamed up with Gena Lee Nolin – yes! that Gena Lee Nolin, from Baywatch – on a new book called Beautiful Inside and Out: Conquering Thyroid Disease with a Healthy, Happy, “Thyroid Sexy” Life. The book is only available for pre-order right now, so I haven’t read it yet, but here’s the description:
Gena Lee Nolin, a star of the hit TV series Baywatch, was the picture of perfect health. Then suddenly she was plagued by a baffling array of symptoms: exhaustion, brain fog, bloating, depression, hair loss, and debilitating changes in energy, weight, and mood, culminating in lifethreatening symptoms during her pregnancy. Like millions of American women, Nolin was struggling with undiagnosed thyroid disease. Thyroid problems leave women feeling anything but beautiful, and often they find themselves stigmatized by friends, family, the media—even doctors. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Collaborating with New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized thyroid patient advocate Mary Shomon, Nolin uses her own story to deliver practical information vital for anyone struggling with thyroid issues. Readers will learn how to get diagnosed accurately and treated effectively, how to lose weight, balance hormones, solve beauty challenges, and regain their self-confidence. Full of practical checklists, questionnaires, and advice from America’s leading experts in thyroid and hormonal health, here is a heartfelt, helpful guide for women who are ready to feel strong, sexy, and beautiful again.
Mary Shomon is offering a free, online Q&A on Monday, September 23 to people who pre-order the book. It’s an opportunity to spend an hour with Shomon and ask questions about thyroid-related issues. In the free call, Shomon will be sharing things that have been working for her, taking listener questions, and talking through recent thyroid news.
