The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Amy Myers

It’s clear that the prevalence of autoimmune conditions is on the rise. Far and away, the most common autoimmune condition in America is directed against the thyroid gland, autoimmune thyroiditis. Like all autoimmune conditions, autoimmune thyroiditis is far more common in women, but for a reason that remains unclear. Nonetheless, it is clear that environmental issues, or lifestyle choices, seem to be playing a very important role in causing an imbalance within the immune system, paving the way for thyroid problems.

In today’s program, I have the great honor of interviewing Dr. Amy Myers. Dr. Myers is very much a pioneer in getting out the information related to how lifestyle choices affect the immune system, and is very candid about her own personal experience with thyroid disease.

Her new book is certainly worth reading, as it is filled with not only great information, but information upon which you can act to achieve more balance in immune function. I think you’re going to enjoy this interview.

    • David Perlmutter

      Don’t know for sure Christine. You may want to check Amazon, B&N, or a local retailer.

      Christine, I have her *first* book, which is called The Autoimmune Solution. You may be looking at the first book in French, not this latest, titled, The Thyroid Connection.

    Thank you for this video. I had my thyroid removed 20 years ago. How can I assure that my body is getting the essential thyroid hormones it needs to function optimally?

  • Barb B.

    Thank you for this very informative video. I was wallowing on my couch with yet another heavy headed/ nausea day (even though I am grain free) when I happened across this. I am getting the book and making an appt. with my DR. TODAY!!

    • David Perlmutter

      That’s the key! Great to see your energy for taking back control of your health.

    Great video, interview, and so very timely for me. Have just yesterday been prescribed Synthroid based on my Drz test results for TSH (16 vice 8 earlier) and T4Free (10 vice 11 earlier). We are Permutter-crazy have all his books, and follow his diet/lifestyle. Eat lots of probiiotics, veggies, little meat, fish, mostly ALL organic, homemade, etc. Eat NO candies, sugars, pasta, bread, etc. We are SO good, and I am gob-smacked, don’t want ever to take meds (“Syncroid” even SOUNDS scary), and am wondering where to go, what to do…. any suggestions out there??… Thanks!!

    another great interview! I checked my local bookstore and they told me that this book is not available in stores only online which is too bad because I prefer the hard copy of a book

    • sandy toomey

      I recently saw her book at my local Barnes and Noble store in Richmond, VA

      • David Perlmutter

        Do hope you picked up a copy!

  • Lynne

    Very informative but I was sorry Dr. P. kept interrupting her. I wanted to her what she was saying.

    I have read Brain Maker and threw out all of my pasta, which I love, and all of my bread, crackers, and other gluten-making stuff; the only thing I haven’t done is fermented food. I did all of this about four weeks ago, and have seen no change in my Parkinson’s Disease situation. As a matter of fact I have seen increased stumbling and falling! What gives???
