Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed.

Patient Leader

Hello to all my thyroid friends worldwide! Who would've guessed that I'd be where I am today after 16 years---a Thyroid Patient Activist, author/editor of two books, owner and creator of http://stopthethyroidmadness.com, and promoter of FAR BETTER WAYS TO TREAT OUR THYROID AND RELATED ISSUES---all based on years of reported patient experiences and the wisdom gained from those experiences rather than simply "strong opinions". Yes, I had to suffer, but that suffering impelled me to find better answers for YOU AND ME. Today, more and more patients are getting well thanks to reported patient experiences as seen on STOP THE THYROID MADNESS, and I'm so very glad!! :) :)

Janie has done a fabulous job of accurately documenting patient experience related to thyroid and adrenal health. This has done a genuine service to patients by avoiding the strong opinions of so many authors out there and focusing on what really does and does not work in the real world.  — Jamie
