This week Further Food is pleased to spotlight Amy Myers, MD, one of our experts in autoimmune disease. After suffering from symptoms of Graves’ disease — panic attacks, insomnia, drastic weight loss — and following a conventional approach that destroyed her thyroid, Dr. Myers decided to study functional medicine, because she believes there isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment for a health condition or disease. In fact, she says she wishes she knew then about healing through nutrition — because she would probably still have her thyroid today.
Dr. Myers’ goal is to reach as many people as she can to help them find individualized solutions for their health issues. She sees patients in her clinic, shares advice through her blog, created The Myers Way® 30-Day Candida Control Program, and is the author of The New York Times bestseller, The Autoimmune Solution.
Whether your goal is to reduce stress, ease pain or just improve how you feel on a daily basis, Dr. Myers has advice for you. She’ll be answering your most pressing questions (for free!) all week long on Further Food. Simply post your questions in the comments section below. We’ve also compiled Dr. Myers’ empowering personal story, advice about thyroid-threatening toxins, beliefs about giving up gluten and much, much more.
