Episode Summary:

I fired my doctor. I know that sounds intense, but it’s true. And it was necessary to take the next step in my thyroid healing journey.

It all started around 10 years ago when I was in my 20s and started experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s. I went to my doctor, got tests done, and promptly went on medication, which helped for a while. But when it stopped working, that’s when I took my healing journey into my own hands.

This is where I discovered functional medicine and found someone who truly listened to my health concerns and took all of my symptoms into account. From there, I started to actually heal my thyroid problems and learn all about the mind-body connection that can sometimes leave us sick and trapped in cycles we aren’t aware of. 

And thanks to all of this, I’ve started my own business (and podcast) teaching women how to heal their thyroids through a variety of treatments for both the mind and body. This is where this podcast relaunch begins, and I hope you’ll join me as I share more stories and bring you more guests who are experts in these subjects.
