  1. Hi,
    A nutrition expert/scientist recommended your site to me, specifically regarding thiamine issues. I have seen references about a book on Thiamine Deficiency but can’t seem to find the book. This person thought reading this would explain well why my body is begging for thiamine. Thank you.

  2. Please add The Root Cause and Stop The Thyroid Madness II in your Thyroid section of recommendations.

  3. Please add Hormones, Health and Happiness by Steven F Hotze, M.D. to your list. The book describes how the immune system, endocrine and digestive systems are all integrated, and how listening to a patient can help to illuminate the underlying problems leading to a host of symptoms. Dr. Hotze is an advocoate for natural approaches to health in women and men.
