It’s thought that 90% of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, so why aren’t more people talking about this common problem? Thyroid hormones affect every single cell in the body, including the digestive tract cells. So, if you want ideal digestion, you have to have optimal thyroid hormones.
The frustrating problem is that the thyroid gland is regulated by complex feedback systems that can make supplementing with more hormones alone an unsatisfactory solution. As we discuss in this podcast, fixing thyroid issues is really like peeling an onion back. Each layer that you peel back reveals more issues to correct. At times this can be disheartening. But as you’ll hear from this podcast, starting with thyroid problems can lead you back to all the root causes of your health issues.
That’s why I’m so excited for you to hear Dr. Izabella Wentz, PharmD. talk about one of the most misunderstood conditions of our age: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Izabella has spent some serious time and energy writing her new book, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause. After being diagnosed with this disease in 2009, she poured three years of research and two years of testing into trying to heal. And when thyroid medications only improved her sleep from 12 plus hours to 11 hours a night, she began peeling back the layers one at a time until she reached complete remission!
