Wojciech Majda –
If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to help you better understand and manage your hypothyroidism, then the “Hypothyroid Treatment Program” is definitely worth looking at. The program is based on the work of Ray Peat, a scientist and researcher who has dedicated his life to understanding the connection between thyroid health and overall metabolic function.
Ms. Benedicte did a great job explaining and condensing Ray Peat’s work (as it refers to hypothyroidism) to people WITHOUT Ph.D. in biochemistry!
Great product – I should have bought this program earlier!
After having read the program I understand much better, how my body is affected by what I eat, and I realise that I have to change what I am eating. Thank you!
Very very good! This program gives you, in a compact form, an understanding of how your thyroid is functioning, and how important it is for your metabolism and the energy of your cells. It explains complicated stuff in a way, so at least I could understand most of it.
