In December of 2013, the Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy SREAT Alliance published it’s first book, “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy: A Guide for Patients, Families and Caregivers“. HESA is the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to spread awareness and increase understanding of Hashimoto’s encephalopathy while supporting those affected by this illness. The book was published using the CreateSpace self-publishing platform. The book consists of a brief chapter about HE/SREAT but the bulk of the book is made up of stories by patients themselves, their loved ones, and caregivers.
Following the publication of “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy“, HESA self-published a cookbook full of recipes provided by members of a diverse group of patients with easy-to-follow instructions for delicious meals.
In January of 2014, HESA began work on the second edition of “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy“. As of April 17th, the new book has been released and can be purchased on Amazon. You can find more information on the newly released book under the “2nd Edition” section under, “Our Books“.
It was our goal in expanding on the first edition of the book to help those with HE/SREAT: (1) find the latest scientific information; (2) identify physicians with HE experience; and (3) locate resources and support systems to help them cope with this disease. In addition, the new edition is designed to assist clinicians who encounter patients with suspected HE/SREAT in finding useful information and referral sources.
HESA intends to create further book projects geared toward children and young people to provide them with a basic understanding of their condition.
