More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Thyroid Health and Stress – Taking Charge Of One More Symptom Trigger

Keeping your thyroid health at its best includes a lot of stress management.


As a stress expert, I’m always aware of how people “do it to themselves.” We worry, fret, dispair, get angry and scared, and usually over the most unimportant things and/or things we can’t change anyway. 

The most important thing you (a thyroid sufferer) need to realize is that your personal stressing is increasing your risk of creating more thyroid dysfunction.

A 2011 report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that “stress has become the most common reason for a worker being signed off long-term sick.” The “21st century equivalent of the Black Death” they said.

I’ve heard reports on the news this year saying that “by the year 2015 stress will be the #2 debilitating illness, next to heart disease.” Really? That’s only a few years away! Actually, it’s NOW.

The joke is on us of course! We can take control over stress in our lives, but we don’t.


“The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger
do not exist independently of you in the world.
They simply do not exist in the physical world,
even though we talk about them as if they do.” 
~ Wayne Dyer  

Today, begin deciding to stop the craziness that you call “my life” and choose to take charge of your inner and outer life that feels out of control.

Take a breath.

Take a break.

Take a walk.

You’re the only one who can lighten your load and change your attitude about what is happening, or, change what is happening.

Make a decision.

Make a plan.

Take the action on the plan.

Your adrenal system is compromised enough with a thyroid condition. Decide what you can do about a situation that is stressing you and do it, change it,  right away.

Don’t procrastinate. Break free of crazy-making situations, people, places and things; habits and routines that are not healthy or calming, enhancing or good for your best life.

Hasn’t your thyroid condition stolen enough of your life already?

Get your life back more quickly each day by becoming aware of distracting and chaos-creating thoughts, activities, beliefs and relationships. Push the big “delete” key in your mind and remove it. Let it go. Your health and life are important and you matter.  

“If you ask what is the single most important
key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry,
stress and tension. And if you didn’t ask me,
I’d still have to say it.”
~ George Burns


If you’re struggling with thyroid symptoms and need an immediate  plan of help to Get Your Life Back today, I highly suggest my Manual, Forms and Diet and/or 6-Module Audio Home Study Course.

    I am a “HYPER thyroid” sufferer. I find tons of info on the HYPO and Hashiomoto’s disease.
    They want to do tthe radio active treatment on me and I have not been back to the doctor since. (3months ago) My symptoms and fatigue, depression aand body temp regulations. I would like to find an herbal treatment. Will your book help HYPER people?

      Less people have HYPERthyroidism, but if not taken care of (with diet, etc.) it can turn into HYPOthyroidism.

      In your case, the radio active treatment can move it into HYPOthyroidism.

      You can try herbal treatments, but it’s a wholistic clean diet and supplements that will make the difference to literally “rebuild” your health.

      Yes, my manual will help you/HYPER people. http://thyroidu.com/bookstoreresources/

      Please check my PRACTITIONERS list http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/ and get a second opinion from a Thyroid Trained Practitioner. You still may have to go that route, but it’s good to have the right kind of doctor tell you so and why.

      My site focuses on “hypo”thyroidism, but yes, the dietary information I offer in my blog and the diet in my Get Your Life Back! Thyroid Manual http://thyroidu.com/bookstoreresources/ will work for you.

    I was told by my chiropractor that my thyroid was not working properly. He gave me an iodine tablet to take everyday. I have every symptom when I started looking at yours and Susy cohens website. Where do I start?
