Our Books

In December of 2013, the Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy SREAT Alliance published its first book, “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy: A Guide for Patients, Families and Caregivers.” HESA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to spread awareness and increase understanding of Hashimoto’s encephalopathy while supporting those affected by this illness.

Following the publication of the original edition of “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy,” HESA self-published a cookbook of recipes submitted 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 expanded, second edition of “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy.” The goal in expanding on the first edition of the book was to help those with HE/SREAT: (1) find the latest scientific information; (2) identify physicians with HE experience and learn how they approach the disease; and (3) locate resources and support systems to help patients and their loved ones cope with the disease. In addition, the new edition is designed to help clinicians who encounter patients with suspected HE/SREAT and need to find current scientific information.

HESA plans to publish additional books in the future for children and young people who need help understanding HE.
