THE STOP THE THYROID MADNESS II BOOK: the white one with the doctor’s coat. This is meant to be a companion book to the STTM I book. It’s not mean to be used by itself.
Humorous tidbit: Janie had that style of cover design in her mind from the beginning–simple, understated, white. But the paid cover designer just wasn’t doing it the way she envisioned–color, busy. She finally said Stop! and told him “Do this, do that”. He didn’t like it. She didn’t care! It’s exactly as she envisioned it and works.
This book was on Janie’s mind for awhile as a SUPPLEMENT to the important STTM I book: i.e. this is totally written by medical practitioners and would “complement” the STTM I book. (No, it’s not a replacement. It’s a complement.)
Overall, it’s purpose was two-fold: 1) To bring more details about certain subjects that only trained practitioners could bring to the fold of informed thyroid patients 2) To send a STRONG message to other practitioners, i.e. YOUR doctor, that “Hey, even some of your colleagues share similar wisdom as is known by thyroid patients!! Listen to them!”
Janie had to carefully choose these professionals. She did so by looking closely as to what each one might write best about. That was extremely important. And they did a good job with their topic.
She then had to find a way to contact each one, which wasn’t easy, and explain her vision. These are the ones who heartily agreed to write a chapter on the subject you see! And each chapter has great value in their own ways.
