Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic (Paperback)
Dr. Starr has written a clear and understandable explanation of why so many people today are suffering from hypothyroidism, despite normal’ blood tests that throw their doctors off the track. This book is a compilation of the overwhelming evidence that not only is the modern laboratory testing used to diagnose hypothyroidism completely inadequate, but also the current treatment for the illness is equally lacking efficacy.
About the Author
Amanda Maier was a major violin soloist in Scandanavia and Germany in the 1870s, performing concertos with important symphony orchestras -- such as the Gewandhaus in Leipzig and the Royal Swedish Orchestra in Stockholm. Her multi-faceted musical talent emerged at an early age. At 16, she entered the Royal School of Music in Stockholm -- where she studied violin, organ, piano, cello, composition, harmony, music history and aesthetics. In 1872, she receive from the school the academic title of Music Director, the first woman to be so honored. In 1880, she married the pianist and composer Julius Rontgen -- who would become Director of the Conservatory of Music in Amsterdam. Maier gave up her public musical career -- both as a violin soloist and as a composer -- in favor of a domestic life as the wife of an important musician and the mother of two sons. The Rontgens frequently gave musical evenings at their home in Amsterdam at which they and colleagues performed works by themselves and by other composers. Among the guests were many notable traveling musicians -- including Edvard Grieg, Anton Rubinstein, Clara Schumann, Joseph Joachim and Johannes Brahms. Grieg and Brahms admired Maier both as a violinist and as a composer. Grieg called her one of his "favourites" and described her Piano Quartet in E as "beautiful." Brahms sent Maier an early version of his Violin Sonata no. 3, asking her for comments and suggestions. On the score, she made many markings and suggested changes, most of which Brahms incorporated into his final published version of this work. At one of the Rontgen's musical evenings, Maier performed Brahms' Violin Sonata no. 3 with Clara Schumann -- who later wrote to Brahms that Gaier had played his work "with love."
