LET’S TALK THYROID
Positive & Practical Thyroid Help
1 in 8 women will suffer some form of thyroid disorder throughout their lives, yet many of those are undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and/or mismanaged. The thyroid is an incredibly important, yet highly sensitive gland, critical to your body performing at its best, so it needs to be managed well.
Annabel takes you through her journey as a patient, and the myriad of lessons she has learned practically dealing with the challenges of living with a thyroid disease, so that you can get your thyroid health journey started (or continued) well. The experiences of many of her podcast guests provide other helpful insights.
You will learn the basics of how your thyroid works, the mindset needed to tackle change, the importance of unwinding, how food impacts your thyroid and how to reduce the toxic load of a modern lifestyle. It’s not just information, it’s intensely practical, designed to get you started on finding your unique thyroid-friendly lifestyle and feeling great.
NOTE: This book was originally published under the title Kiss & Make Up With Your Thyroid. It has simply had a name and cover change but is otherwise exactly the same book. When you purchase the book directly from me, you will receive the the original title until all stock has been sold.
Available in both paperback and ebook.
EXCERPT FROM THE FOREWARD

She has walked your walk and wants you to benefit from the knowledge and experience she has worked hard for many decades to accumulate. She wants you to benefit from her years of effort to make your healing journey as empowering and efficient as possible. Her compassion and intelligence radiates throughout this book, I know it will help heal many people.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Annabel
When I was diagnosed with ‘primary hypothyroidism’ at 22 (way back in 1996!), I was told all I needed to do was just take a pill every day for the rest of my life and I’d be ‘fine.’ So I did. Maybe I was ‘fine.’ I was surviving though, not thriving.
I have taken medication since I was diagnosed at 22 years old, but I’ve also developed my own unique thyroid-friendly lifestyle. I’ve read broadly about thyroid health, sought professional support, worked with my integrative doctor for the last 15 years, experimented, changed my diet, lifestyle, and approach to stress.
Increasingly I’ve learned to love my thyroid. I’ve ‘made up’ with my thyroid and I’m currently feeling fantastic.
There is no magic “happy thyroid” formula, BUT you’ve got to start somewhere. This book is that somewhere.
I am a passionate thyroid health ‘advocate’, a well-educated patient who wants to help other thyroid patients know there is SO MUCH you can do to feel great. I want you to know there is HOPE. This book is my way of sharing with you what’s worked for me and many, many others.
I am also the author of self published and best selling cookbook, What Annabel Cooks: Real food that will make you flourish and I have a successful podcast, Let’s Talk Thyroid where I talk to thyroid experts and patients from around the world to help spread thyroid health awareness.
