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?
