If you Google the term thyroid, you won’t have to go more than two or three lines down the first page before you see Mary Shomon’s name. Same with an Amazon.com book topic search. Thyroid and Mary Shomon are nearly synonymous in the English-speaking world, as Mary Shomon is known in the US, the UK, Australia, Germany, and around the world as New York Times bestselling author, and one of the key thyroid and hormonal health activists in the world.
Mary was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism in 1995, and transformed her own struggle to gain control over her health, have a healthy pregnancy, and understand her condition into an advocacy and educational mission that now makes her a leading voice in health advocacy.
Mary Shomon has been a regular online presence for thyroid information and awareness since 1995, when she was a regular participant in the Usenet newsgroup alt.support.thyroid. She created Frequently Asked Questions lists, and became a regular voice in that support group, until she launched one of the original health sites at The Mining Co., which would later be purchased by the New York Times and renamed About.com, now Verywell.com. Mary was the site’s sole researcher/writer until 2018.
Mary is now the thyroid and hormonal health patient expert for HealthCentral, and her articles reach millions of people a year, a world-wide audience hungry for thyroid and hormonal health information.
Mary also runs an email newsletter founded in 1997, Sticking Out Our Necks, which has 100,000+ email subscribers.
