I’m back again with reviews of some great new books to fill your health library. I also wanted to share that the Polish version of Hashimoto’s Protocol is officially an international bestseller – it has hit the list in Poland (#8 overall), where the publisher has already printed 20,000 copies since publishing in September! As a little girl growing up in Poland, I always dreamed about helping people and had no idea that my own personal health struggles would lead to helping so many people!
Vibe: Unlock the Energetic Frequencies of Limitless Health, Love & Success – by Robyn Openshaw
Robyn Openshaw’s new book, Vibe, is about how everything has vibrational frequency — including you! — and knowing more about this is what Tesla called “the secrets of the Universe.” Einstein said that “everything in life is vibration.”
Foods, emotions, other people, and substances you use to medicate with have vibrational frequencies that have a direct impact on whether YOU are healthy, and happy. If you have a thyroid condition, Robyn teaches that a higher vibration thyroid detoxifies itself more efficiently and serves you better. I love this book. You’ll feel really great reading it! Robyn inspires and spreads positive energy! Read Vibe to find out more!

Thriving in the Workplace with Autoimmune Disease is the first book ever to educate individuals specifically with autoimmune disease on their legal and disability rights in the workplace. The book was born out of author Holly Bertone’s personal and painful experience and lack of resources available specifically for individuals with autoimmune diseases. She walks you through the basics of navigating FMLA, EEO, reasonable accommodations, working with your boss and then provides much needed resources to help you find that critical balance between taking care of your health and managing your symptoms at work. This is a great book for an unfortunate situation.
