by | Jul 5, 2020 | Podcasts | 0 comments

Podcast Episode 77

Having thyroid issues doesn’t always mean that the thyroid is what needs to be treated. Most hypothyroidism can be attributed to the autoimmune disease called “Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis”.

In this episode, you’ll find out how to support your body with nutrition and lifestyle habits that support overall health of the body and may be able to bring thyroid function back into balance.


  • What role does the thyroid play in health?
  • What are symptoms of a poorly functioning thyroid?
  • What does immune function have to do with the thyroid?
  • What nutrients support the thyroid? What foods should I include or avoid?
  • What the heck is selenium? What’s in the anti-inflammatory diet?
  • What effect do environmental & “endocrine disrupting chemicals have?
  • Is the THYroid connected to the HIP bone?
  • Why do Keith and Mary sing so much?

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
