The Menopause Thyroid Solution: Overcome Menopause By Solving Your Hidden
Thyroid Problems

Mary Shomon is a patient advocate, author, communications consultant, wife and mother
who has transformed her own struggle with thyroid disease into an advocacy campaign on behalf of patients with chronic diseases such as thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue, among others.

Mary was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in 1995, and now researches and writes about these conditions and their impact on health and weight. Since early 1997, she has served as founder and Guide for the award-winning About.com Thyroid website, and as editor of her popular patient thyroid news report, Sticking Out Our Necks.

Mary's desire to cut through medical jargon and deliver information to my fellow patients in a form they can understand resulted in her first health-related book, Living Well With Hypothyroidism: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You . . . That You Need to Know, which was first published in 2000 by HarperCollins, and has been a best-seller, going to more than 20 printings before a 2nd Revised Edition was published in 2005. The book was a Prevention
Book Club Selection, and Amazon Top-Selling health book, and its popularity launched a new series of consumer health books for publisher HarperCollins.

Mary is also author of the New York Times best-selling book The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your
Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss. (2004) "Thyroid Diet" was also a semi-finalist for the
prestigious Quills Awards in 2005.

In addition to her new 2009 release The Menopause Thyroid Solution," Mary is also author of Thyroid Hormone Breakthrough, Living Well With Graves' Disease and Hyperthyroidism" (2005) Living Well With Autoimmune Disease"(2003) Living Well With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia," (2004) and the Thyroid Guide to Hair Loss" (2006).

Mary's newsletter for thyroid patients, "Sticking Out Our Necks," was founded in 1997, and has become a popular resource for patients in both its email and print form.

Mary has served as the Guide for the popular About.com Thyroid site -- nowpart of the New York Times Company -- launching the site in early 1997, and managing the site and working as its sole researcher/writer since that time. That site, Thyroid.about.com, along with my advocacy site Thyroid-info.com, are the Internet's most popular and visited sites dedicated to thyroid disease.

Mary has been featured in hundreds of television, radio, newspaper, magazine and web interviews, including appearances on ABC World News Tonight and CBS Radio Networks, and interviews in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Ladies Home Journal, Health, Cooking Light, Elle Magazine, Woman's World, and the Los Angeles Times, to
name just a few.

In her decade of consumer advocacy, Mary has never hesitated to take a stand on behalf of
patients, and her independence from drug companies and medical/patient organizations that
are funded by the pharmaceutical industry has allowed her to maintain an unbiased, truly
patient-first advocacy effort.

Her ability to communicate important health-related information reflects 25 years of experience designing social marketing, grassroots outreach, consumer marketing and public information campaigns while working in the social outreach, advertising and public relations industry -- designing campaigns for clients as diverse as furniture retailer IKEA, the World Bank, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Before Mary began writing in the health area, she also published several humor books. She
co-authored the humor book, Scratching the Net: Web Sites for Cats published by Andrews McMeel in 1998, and wrote the Washington, DC bestseller, The Single Woman's Guide to the Available Men of Washington, published in 1993.

Mary serves on the faculty of the New York Open Center, a nationally known holistic health educational center located in New York City, where she teaches various seminars on thyroid disease.

Mary belongs to the Endocrine Society, and is one of the first patient members of the American Academy on Communication in Healthcare, a professional society dedicated to research and education in patient-doctor communications. Mary is also a member of the Association of Health Care Journalists.

Mary has a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
