In this week's episode of Thyroid-healthy Bites, we're going to switch things up a bit. I'll be in the hot seat this time, being interviewed by the amazing Annabel Bateman of the Let's Talk Thyroid Podcast. She had me on her show to talk all about food, glorious thyroid-healthy food! Annabel is a health coach, cookbook author, Hashimoto's patient, mom of three teenagers (!!!), and a fellow Thyroid Thriver from Australia. She reached out to me via Instagram because we both LOVE thyroid-healthy eating and recipes. Like me, Annabel has used diet and lifestyle to manage her thyroid symptoms with life-changing success. In fact, she recently found out that her thyroid antibodies are so low she's essentially in remission! We had so much to talk about and I had a great time on her show. This episode is a little longer than my normal episode length, but there's a ton of great information, inspiration, and practical tips we both shared as we compared notes and personal stories. We Discuss: My healing journey and my mission The 4 core principles of thyroid-healthy eating The three primary food groups in a thyroid-healthy diet Strategies for making diet and lifestyle changes that stick Mindset shifts that have helped us navigate a new and better way of eating Tackling gluten-free breakfasts Practical kitchen tips for real-world, thyroid-healthy cooking How to approach sweets, treats, and desserts.

The Investigation Thyroid issues can be so frustrating because often doctors will say there is nothing to be done other than taking medication. We talk a lot about hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's Disease (an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid resulting in not enough thyroid hormone) but there is another side to thyroid issues. It is also possible for there to be too much thyroid hormone being produced. This is called hyperthyroidism and the autoimmune disease that can cause this is Graves' Disease. But it is also possible for those with Hashimoto's disease to experience periods of hyperthyroidism - which just adds to the thyroid mystery. In this episode of Health Mysteries Solved, we're exploring hyperthyroid symptoms in Graves' as well as in Hashimoto's. To help with this discussion, I invited fellow clinical nutritionist, Juli Keene, on the show. She's based in Los Angeles and has been in practice for over 25 years often helping professional athletes and high-functioning folks with complicated health issues. She's also a real expert on Graves' Disease. What is Graves' Disease? Graves' Disease is an autoimmune disease affecting the thyroid. What's happening with Graves' is that there is an immune attack and antibodies get created. These antibodies attack the thyroid and stimulate the hormone receptors. This results in an overproduction of thyroid hormones and a hyperactive thyroid. It can be very dangerous to have too much thyroid hormone and needs to be addressed right away. The Difference Between Graves' Disease and Hashimoto's Disease With Hashimoto's, the immune system is attacking the thyroid resulting in reduced hormone production (hypothyroidism) and with Graves' it's the opposite. However, the nuances between the two autoimmune diseases are more complex, especially if you have Hashimoto's. With Graves', the levels continuously escalate. However, with Hashimoto's, there can be flare ups that present like Graves' where the thyroid swings from not producing enough to overproducing. So, someone with Hashimoto's might have a flare up and suddenly have hyperthyroid symptoms. It's also worth noting that someone with Hashimoto's can also have Graves' disease too (although it's not common). It's all in how and when the immune system produces the different antibodies and how these antibodies succeed in destroying the thyroid. Symptoms of Graves' Disease Unlike the symptom of Hashimoto's where people feel sluggish (when not in a flareup that is), people with Graves' might report feeling great. They have lots of energy, their weight is good, and they are often in a good mood. But soon, this can slide into feelings of anxiety, sometimes a sense of feeling manic, and even experiencing heart palpitations. Soon, they may also swing into weight loss, and brain fog. With Graves', the symptoms can go up and down but generally progress. The most common symptoms include: Irregular & rapid heartbeat Heart palpitations Hand and finger tremors Anxiety and irritability Unexplained weight loss paired with insatiable hunger Heat sensitivity (sweating and hot flashes) Muscle weakness Hair loss. Visibly enlarged thyroid gland (sometimes it can develop into a goiter) Menstrual cycle irregularities Low or no sex drive Diarrhea or IBS Insomnia Decreased bone density and low calcium levels Diagnosing Graves' Disease Graves' disease can be diagnosed with a blood test. Generally, this includes a full thyroid panel and TSI Antibodies. If you are talking with a conventional doctor because you have symptoms that might indicate Graves' it's important to ask for the full thyroid panel and look specifically at the TSI antibodies. Conventional Treatment for Graves' Disease Graves' is a dangerous condition. Doctors usually put the patient on thyroid suppressing hormone medication. They may also add a beta blocker to slow down heart palpitations. Many conventional doctors will also recommend a treatment that destroys the thyroid and requires the patient to be on thyroid replacement medication after the procedure to have a better handle on thyroid hormone levels. Contributing Factors to Graves' Disease From An Integrative Perspective As mentioned, Graves' disease or symptoms and labs that suggest Graves' need to be taken seriously. Ideally, you would see an endocrinologist as well as an integrative doctor or nutritionist who understands Graves' and can look at some of the underlying issues that conventional doctors may miss that could be contributing to the severity of your condition. Potential contributing factors could include: Infections or viruses (like H. Pylori or Epstein Barr) Gut pathogens (yeast, SIBO) Intestinal permeability (leaky gut) Stress Environmental toxin exposure like mold, mercury, glyphosate, and copper. Hormonal shifts You may be noticing that many of these potential contributing factors are very similar to the ones we speak about in Hashimoto's triggers because the issue here is the immune system that is confused. Integrative Support for Graves' Disease Some integrative doctors will recommend supplements aimed at supporting the slowing down of the thyroid. They may also recommend supplements to reduce the risk of worsening health issues caused by the symptoms of Graves' disease like depleted calcium. In addition, testing for and supporting underlying issues may reduce Graves' symptoms. Juli shared an example of a patient who was taking excessive amounts of spirulina believing increased amounts of a health product would result in increased health benefits. Instead, the high doses of spirulina resulted in an overload of iodine which even further increased thyroid function. This is why it's important to look at the whole picture. Additionally, patients typically see that dealing with dysbiosis, adrenal imbalances, H. Pylori infections, or removing toxins from their day to day environment reduce their symptoms and help calm the immune response. These are positive steps to take and getting to the root cause of what is creating the immune response my be able to reduce the chances that the thyroid will need to be removed or destroyed. These options however should be considered with the guidance of an endocrinologist and (ideally) also a functional medicine doctor. Testing for Triggers and Contributing Issues Finding what may have triggered a symptom or lead to Graves' disease can be a real health mystery. Juli likes to test for viruses when she is on the hunt for a root cause. She will run a variety of tests looking for antibodies to see if there is an active virus. This viral panel will also reveal if Epstein Barr Virus might be at play. Treating Triggers and Potential Root Causes of Graves' Disease Treating triggers and dealing with potential root causes may require a combination of integrative health and conventional medicine solutions. For example, Juli explains that antiviral medication sometimes just works faster including valacyclovir and acyclovir. Additionally, correcting any mineral deficiencies or excesses can be very helpful in decreasing symptoms and supporting the immune system. Having said that, Graves' is not the kind of disease where you can get symptoms under control and just forget about it. It's important to regularly test your thyroid levels as well as monitor other contributing factors (viruses, gut health, mineral levels, etc) and watch for triggers like toxins, foods, and stress. Mystery Solved In this episode, we reveal that there are definitely things that can be done for Graves' disease. Just like Hashimoto's, it's all about supporting the immune system to balance the thyroid. It's also important to be informed when you are discussing lab reports that point to overactive thyroid. You will want to make sure to determine if it's Graves', a Hashimoto's flare up or a combination. Be sure to take action. A fast thyroid can cause many serious problems and should be addressed right away. Working with an endocrinologist is a good idea but, if possible, also work with a functional doctor or clinical nutritionist to explore possible lifestyle and nutrition options for supporting your immune system.

Are you experiencing thyroid related hair loss? If so, you aren't alone! Hair loss is one of the most damaging and concerning symptoms caused by low thyroid function and it's what we are going to be discussing today! I've talked previously about how to treat thyroid related hair loss and today I want to expand on that. But to recap, you need to know the basics. If you want to treat thyroid related hair loss at the most basic level then you need to do 3 things: #1. Optimize thyroid function with thyroid medication. #2. Optimize iron status by looking at ferritin. #3. Make sure you replace lost nutrients. Doing this will help MOST people with hair loss related to their thyroid! If you haven't done these things then you should start there. Today we are going to talk about additional or more advanced hair loss therapies that thyroid patients can use if they are suffering from hair loss or if those treatments listed above didn't work. These therapies are very effective and help the different types of hair loss that thyroid patients experience including androgenetic alopecia, autoimmune alopecia, and diffuse alopecia. These treatments include: #1. Microneedling #2. Platelet rich plasma #3. Low level light therapy (red laser & LED therapy) #4. Spironolactone (oral medication) #5. Minoxidil (Rogaine) - FDA approved for hair loss in women #6. Caffeinated shampoo & topical zinc #7. Finasteride (oral medication) These are thyroid hair loss treatments that can be used on top of whatever you are doing now. They may not all work but as you pick and choose between them you will eventually find what works best for your body.

Stage IV ovarian cancer with metastasis to the liver, peritoneal carcinomatosis, malignant ascites, pleural effusion, end-stage organ failure, and a bowel blockage: this was the list of diagnoses facing 19-year-old Nasha Winters after years of being dismissed as a hypochondriac. But it wasn't until she was actually diagnosed with a terminal disease that she finally wanted to live. Tune in to hear Dr. Winters's incredible story and learn: Why people with Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis are often misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder The link between anxiety and fear, epigenetic expression, and cancer The impact of breathwork on the parasympathetic response, and how to use a simple breathing technique for reducing anxiety and depression The implication of the fact that 80% of neurotransmitters are made in the gut When and how psychedelics and other plant medicines can be used, and the powerfully positive impact they can have on the nervous system It's been three decades since her diagnosis, and today Dr. Winters is a naturopathic doctor, Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO), author, and well-respected authority in healthcare. In addition to sharing the incredible details of her personal story—which includes childhood illness, severe anxiety and depression, and two suicide attempts—Dr. Winters tells listeners about the connection between adverse childhood events and mental illness, chronic physical illness, and cancer, as well as the impact of nutrition on gut health, and in turn, the impact of gut health on mental and emotional well-being. Dr. Winters has each of her patients take the ACE (adverse childhood events) test, examines their epigenetic factors, and looks for nutritional deficiencies—especially those strongly associated with depression and anxiety. She then analyzes each patient's organic acid profile, which offers a lot of information on neurotransmitter metabolism, and gut and mitochondrial activity. She also checks for genetic signs of certain diseases, such as celiac. Press play to hear the full conversation, check out Dr. Winters's book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies, and visit her website at https://www.drnasha.com/ for more resources.

The Case: Jessica has Hashimoto's Disease and can't seem to balance her thyroid Her doctors say her levels are fine but she's experiencing bloating, fatigue, hair loss, GI issues, and brain fog. She met with several doctors but none were able to address her concerns. The Investigation When I met Jessica, I knew that we had to go beyond supporting the thyroid, we had to slow or stop the attack on her immune system. There are many triggers and Jessica had already cut out gluten. This was great but that told me we had to dig deeper. I noticed that Jessica came from a family of farmers and had quite a bit of exposure. Figuring out her specific triggers was how we were going to solve her autoimmune mystery. Autoimmune Triggers and Glyphosate I talk a lot about the four most common triggers for autoimmune disease and they are: stress, toxins, infections and foods. There is one thing that intersects with all four of these triggers - glyphosate. To explain it fully, I invited Jeffrey Smith on the show. He is the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology and Protect Nature Now. He's also a bestselling author, award-winning filmmaker, and an in-demand speaker. I could think of nobody better to explain what's going on for those with autoimmune disease and even for those who do not have an autoimmune disease. What is Glyphosate? Glyphosate is the main ingredient found in Roundup (a herbicide) created by Monsanto which is now owned by Bayer. This chemical has been found (in a US lawsuit) to have contributed to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and cancer. It has also been linked to more than 30 diseases. It was originally patented as a descaler for industrial builders because it chelates minerals. When it gets into the human body, it also grabs minerals from our system and prevents these minerals from doing their work in keeping us healthy. How are we Exposed to Roundup and Glyphosate? Since the late 1990's, Roundup has been used on human food including genetically modified crops such as soy, corn, cotton, canola, sugar beets, and alfalfa. These GMO crops are engineered to be Roundup-ready which means they can withstand it. Other crops that are often sprayed are oats, wheat, mung beans, lentils, chickpeas, and even orchard fruits and grapes used for wine. It is found throughout the food chain. Effects of Glyphosate Exposure There are many ways that glyphosate exposure can affect the body, including: Mineral deficiencies (which can cause metabolic pathways to shut down) Acts as an antibiotic that kills off the beneficial bacteria in our microbiome. Can break down the cellular walls of our gut, brain, kidneys, or other organs in the body Can damage and mutate the DNA which can lead to cancer. Can damage the mitochondria which has been linked to chronic fatigue, cancer, aging, and several other diseases. Interferes with intercellular communication causing gap junctions (also linked to cancer). Blocks the production of good gut bacteria. Can throw off hormonal balance between estrogen and testosterone. Acts as an endocrine disruptor. Can cause epigenetic changes in gene expression in future generations. Suppresses cellular detoxification pathways and downgrades Nrf2. How Can Glyphosate Trigger Autoimmune Disease? Several of the effects listed above can then contribute to the development of an autoimmune disease. Jeffrey points to GMOs and BT toxin. BT toxin works by creating tiny holes in the insects and that is how it acts as an insecticide. While this can help grow those plans, it can also have the same effect on human cells. This is why he believes that leaky gut can be directly related to BT toxins and that leaky gut can lead to a variety of autoimmune diseases because the gut is now allowing bigger proteins that don't below in the bloodstream, directly into the bloodstream and the immune system starts to see these as an invader and attacks them. The thing is that when the immune system attacks them, it can also by accident attack our other tissues. For example, in the case of Hashimoto's, the immune system is attacking the thyroid because it's mistaking it as an intruder. Because the gap junctions are permanently open due to leaky gut, more and more proteins get into the bloodstream and this creates a lot of inflammation. Scientific studies have found that lab animals fed GMOs will develop inflammation and issues with the immune system, leaky gut, and the destruction of the good bacteria in the gut. Diseases That May Be Linked to Glyphosate and GMO Foods Jeffrey shares that correlational charts show a rise of specific diseases in parallel with the increased use of glyphosate on soy and corn in the US as well as the increased prevalence of genetically modified soy and corn. The specific diseases that appear in the correlation include: Inflammatory Bowel Disease Deaths from intestinal infection Liver disease Various cancers (liver, bile duct, kidney, breast) Autism ADHD Deaths from Alzheimer's Deaths from Senile Dementia Deaths from Parkinson's Anxiety Suicide by overdosing Schizophrenia Celiac disease Insomnia and other Sleep Disorders Skin problems Birth defects Eye problems Diabetes Obesity Stroke and Hypertension Anemia While of course correlation does not prove causation, Jeffery says that he's seen the correlations first hand. He recently surveyed 3256 people who switched to an organic diet and they reported that they felt better. In fact, 85.2% said their digestive issues were resolved. They also reported improvements in fatigue, weight problems, brain fog, anxiety, depression, food sensitivities and allergies. In addition, 21.4% of respondents reported improvements with their autoimmune diseases. Additional Threats from Engineered Microbes We often focus on the microbes in our gut but the atmosphere is full of microbes. And, all of these different microbes belong to microbiomes. For example, there is a microbiome in the dirt, in trees, in other organisms, and in the atmosphere. The threat to these microbiomes (and our own) comes from genetically engineered microbes. Microbes can mutate, swap genetic material, and travel around the world. This is how an engineered microbe created for one purpose could end up inside the DNA of hundreds or thousands of other types of microbes and enter the ecosystems with unknown effect. Jeffrey is trying to stop the release of engineered microbes and has created a film about the threat. You can watch “Don't Let the Gene Out of the Bottle” on his website protectnaturenow.com How to Avoid Glyphosate, BT and GMO Foods Jeffrey gets asked all the time about how to avoid these harmful chemicals. Is going organic enough given the exposure so many of us have already experienced? Jeffrey says it is possible to heal from GMO and Glyphosate exposure but it's more than just switching to organic. You will likely need to remineralize, restore your leaky gut, heal the mitochondria and rebalance hormones (especially if there are sleep issues causing anxiety or depression). The good news is that reducing the GMO and Glyphosate burden has helped people regain their health. He suggests tracking how you feel before you switch to organic and then each day on a clean diet. If going organic feels like a financial challenge, he outlines a few areas to focus and a few ways to reconsider your budget for health and food. There are also certain foods to avoid because they have the highest concentration of Glyphosate or BT toxin. Are GMO and Glyphosate Related to Peanut Allergies? There could be a connection between GMO soy and the increase in peanut allergies as these have a cross reactivity. Plus, genetically modified soy has trypsin inhibitors. Trypsin makes it possible for the body to break down certain proteins including peanut proteins. Genetically modified soy has seven times more trypsin inhibitors compared to natural soy. When these proteins are not broken down properly, they remain in the stomach long enough to create an allergic reaction. Glyphosate and BT (which may damage the mitochondria, destroy the microbiome, and cause leaky gut) can also contribute to an allergic reaction. Testing for Glyphosate and BT Exposure It is possible to find out if you have toxins like Glyphosate and BT in your system. There are urine tests available. If you plan to detox, it can be helpful to do a test before you start and then again afterward to get a sense of the change in toxin levels in the body. Next Steps in Solving Jessica's Health Mystery After spending 2 hours with Jessica reviewing her health history and diet, I saw that she came from a long family of farmers and has not only been exposed to many herbicides on the farm, she also has never really eaten organic foods. She was also gluten-free but was eating quite a bit of conventional corn and soy. Our first step was to clean up her diet by switching to organic, non-GMO corn and lowering how much of it she was eating. She also switched her other foods to organic. We also had to support her gut and liver. We did this with a cleanse, as well as microbial nutrients like GI MicrobX and FC Cidal and supported her digestion with digestive enzymes and Hydrochloric acid. We also supported the healing of her gut with Glutamine and EnteroVite, as well as probiotics. After the gut cleanse, I wanted to make sure that we restored the microbiome because glyphosate can be so damaging. I recommended R's Koso. This is a Japanese fermented drink made from more than 100 different vegetables, fruits, and plants that I find delivers great results. It's like a natural prebiotic and probiotic and a great way to rebalance and continue to support the microbiome. By the way, I have a code for anyone that may want to try it and save 10%, it's INNA10. Use it at checkout on their website. We also had to help out her liver so we did a Push Catch Detox followed by 3 months of phase 2 support using NAC. Happy Ending In just 3 months of the new protocol, Jessica was feeling much better and her brain fog was gone. Eliminating Health Mysteries For Jessica, we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health.

This video outlines my best tips and tricks to get better sleep. Sleep is probably the single most important therapy that I know of when it comes to treating just about ALL diseases and conditions. Want to lose more weight? Get more sleep. Want to reduce inflammation in your body? Get more sleep. Want to improve your autoimmune disease? Get more sleep. Want to age better? Get more sleep. Getting 8 hours of sleep every night is probably the single closest thing we have to a "cure" for these conditions and is something that we ALL need and can all get more of. Every time I talk about the importance of sleep, though, there are a number of people who ask HOW they can do it. Well, here's your answer! These are 12 tips and tricks that I've used successfully on either myself or my patients to help them get better sleep. List of tips: #1. Get a sleep divorce Sleep in a different room from your partner/spouse. #2. Set your temperature 1-2 degrees cooler Lowering the temperature in your house or around your body can improve the depth and quality of your sleep. #3. Have more sex (earlier) Having more sex is great for better sleep but make sure you have it early in the day! Having sex right before bed may make falling asleep difficult. #4. Take supplements Some supplements, such as melatonin, can definitely help you fall asleep faster. #5. Use a screen shader Screen shaders are built into most devices and they allow you to naturally block out blue light. #6. Keep a worry journal A worry journal can help you get rid of thoughts that race through your mind at night and keep you from falling asleep. #7. Use a white noise machine Using white noise or other sounds can help you fall asleep and reduce the chance you wake up from small noises. #8. Eliminate caffeine/coffee Cut back on coffee or caffeine by at least 50% from whatever your daily dose is! Some people are very sensitive and need to be off of it for good. #9. Use meditation Meditation is incredibly helpful at helping you calm down and can help with anxiety. #10. Wear blue light blocking glasses If you can't get your device to block blue light then you can use blue light blocking glasses at night to prevent circadian rhythm disruption. #11. Change your pillow Play around with the texture and firmness of your pillow. The right pillow can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. #12. Massage therapy and chiropractic work Using massage therapy or chiropractic work can help ease muscle tension and improve the depth of your sleep.

Today Sarah Clark and Brandy Buskow are digging into why gluten matters if you are TTC. I get this question all the time, “should I go gluten-free if I'm trying to conceive”. As you may know, I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency at 28 and had both my kids with donors' eggs. Years later I discovered food sensitivities, gut infections, and chronic stress the cause of my infertility. I had no idea that gluten was a problem for my health until years later. Looking back the symptoms were there – bloating, dark circles under my eyes (an indicator of food sensitivity), acne, dizziness, mood swings, keratosis pilaris (also known as chicken skin on the back of my arms – exfoliation didn't help), and of course infertility. As you may know, we work with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, and premature ovarian insufficiency/failure. We see a theme of non-celiac gluten sensitivity with food sensitivity tests coming back with gluten off the charts. I'm excited to welcome Brandy Buskow back to the podcast. Brandy is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success. She is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Board Certified Functional Wellness Coach and Master EFT Practitioner. She loves supporting women so they can learn how functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease or illness. In this episode you'll learn: 1) Why it is important to go gluten-free when we are TTC. 2) Consuming gluten during pregnancy and the potential risks for the child. 3) Difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. 4) Connection between autoimmune diseases and gluten i.e. Hashimoto's and Irritable Bowel Disease 5) Best test for gluten sensitivity 6) Supplements to help with gluten exposure – visit fabfertilestore.com - https://www.fabfertilestore.com/ Gluten and Intestinal Permeability - Study - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4377866/ Excited that our LIVE Fertility Diet Challenge is launching on Nov 8th.

Despite her impressive background, including her UCLA Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency, Dr. Courtney Hunt, MD, found herself at a loss when both her and her husband were dealing with autoimmune conditions. The things that she had been taught during her medical training helped mask some symptoms at best, but never got her anywhere close to the point of being truly healed. How could this happen? Shouldn't someone who, statistically, has more knowledge about the body than 99% of people be able to fix just about anything? It turns out, she couldn't. And, with this realization, Dr. Hunt went back to the drawing board to rethink everything she knew and had been taught. In this episode, we are talking to someone who just may be the most knowledgeable guest we've ever had. You will not only learn about how she healed, but also how she started connecting the dots of a much bigger picture involving the entirety of humanity. How did this OBYGYN turn into someone on a mission to heal the human race? You'll just have to tune in to find out. But, when you do, don't forget your notebook! About Dr. Hunt: Dr. Courtney Hunt has spent the majority of her career as a board certified OBGYN helping women, mothers, and their children deal with 21st Century illnesses that current medical textbooks fail to address. Most of these illnesses arise from our changing, modern environment. After many years delivering babies, Dr. Hunt grew tired of seeing mother after mother, and woman after woman, come in feeling exhausted, foggy, achy, and sad. Worse yet, she grew concerned about the growing number of sick children these women were bringing in with them; children of all ages. Dr. Hunt herself was a busy delivering obstetrician and operating gynecologist and has spent years translating that expertise into figuring out how to make surgery and pharmaceuticals less necessary and lifestyle more important in the path to wellness. She began to study nutrigenetics many years ago when she started to realize that the majority of her pregnant patients were nutrient depleted and grew concerned over the impact this could have on the fetus. Since childhood, Dr. Hunt had a desire to become a physician, especially when at the age of 13 her grandmother developed ALS also known as Lou Gherig's disease. This motivated her at age 17 to attend The University of California at Berkeley as an integrative biology major with a focus on reproductive endocrinology, genetics, and neuroscience. She graduated from medical school at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine at 25 and completed her residency at UCLA, ultimately administrative chief resident. After practicing for one year in California, at 29, she moved to Arizona. After working with a large OBGYN group, she opened her own practice, Desert Jewel OBGYN, in 2005 as the founder and medical director. It was in this practice that she saw an increase of patients that suffered from chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, horrible perimenopausal symptoms, Hashimoto's, vertigo, migraines, memory disorders – and the more she saw, the more they came. These were patients who had previously been ignored by others, undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or had only been given band-aids for their symptoms. In an attempt to better understand those patients and their symptoms, Dr. Hunt utilized her knowledge in genetics to develop a deeper understanding of human DNA how it interacts with environment, lifestyle, and food choices. In addition, her husband was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue shortly after they were married. A childhood disease that was missed in him despite numerous doctor's visits until well into adulthood with almost catastrophic ramifications. This spurred her to deepen her knowledge of the gastrointestinal tract and the affect our food choices as well as the microbiome have on it and it's connection to our brains. On this journey, Dr. Hunt was forced to look outside of what she had been taught in medical school and residency and look deeper for answers. This lead her to the pursuit of nutrigenetics. As an early adopter of BRCA cancer gene testing over 20 years ago, she realized that if we could see the genes that predict cancer we could also see the genes that will could heal us. A roadmap for healing, if you will, an instruction book for the body and it's environment.

Did you know that getting into the sauna 3-5 times per week may actually be able to treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis? FAR IR sauna has a number of benefits that you as a Hashimoto's patient should be aware of so you can take advantage of them. First, let's talk about what a FAR IR sauna is and how it compares to a regular Finnish sauna. The FAR IR sauna contains a combination of both heat and light waves that have therapeutic benefits. Both the Finnish and FAR IR saunas heat up the body and cause sweating but the penetration of the FAR IR sauna is greater which is why it's probably better for detox. FAR IR light waves can penetrate several centimeters into the skin which is enough to get into subcutaneous fat cells, some ligaments/joints, and even some superficial organs. We also know that heating up the body induces many beneficial changes to both enzymes, proteins, and even genetic changes. These occur as your body tries to get back to its normal state. The triggering of these proteins and enzymes enhance the detoxification process which make sauna therapy so effective. What type of benefits will getting into a FAR IR Sauna provide? Check them out below: #1. Detoxification #2. Reduced inflammation #3. Weight loss #4. Relaxation and stress reduction #5. Improved immune function #6. Pain relief #7. More energy #8. Better sleep Want to get these benefits? You'll want to spend at least 15 minutes 3-5 times per week in a FAR IR sauna. Try to get a deep sweat while you are in there. FAR IR sauna therapy is safe and effective as long as it is done correctly.

Have you ever felt ashamed of not being perfect? That something must be wrong with you or you did something wrong because your health is not perfect? I know I did when I found out that my body is healing through Hashimoto Autoimmune dis-ease. This year was so eventful for all of us. With what is happening in the world we all felt we have really full plates. Plus adding to the plate all the events that I have experienced this year really took a toll on my body. In January it really all started when I was in Czech Republic taking care of my grandma and not even knowing those were the last weeks of her life. I quit using birth control and started to learn of the effects it had on my body as I was using it for two decades! Sometimes we don't know what we don't know. So learning with my ND DR. Katherine Zagone who was supporting me and my husband on our fertility journey was heart and eye opening. If you are still on birth control or ever been I invite you to read the book Beyond the Pill by Dr. Jolene Brighten. Next events didn't wait long….. My blood testing showed high antibodies in my Thyroid and also 3.9 TSH (attempting to have under 2.5 when wanting to get pregnant). When I learned this I didn't freak out yet it was uncomfortable. April 5 days before my birthday my dearest grandma transitioned, June on our wedding day my grandpa transitioned and in July our landlord told us unexpectedly we get to move out. All these things are big life events and no matter how well we might think we are handling it, it is still a stress on our bodies. I believe that this stress plus quitting birth control is what contributed to my thyroid not being well. And when I hear people saying that Hashimoto is the body attacking itself, my body just cringes. I am not a dr. yet I resonate with what Medical Medium (Anthony William) is teaching... That autoimmune isn't the body being confused and attacking itself. It is the body attacking a virus EBV that these days isn't easily detected by doctors with all of its varieties. That is my belief and it feels right to me. I believe I was called to Tulum...To heal my body, to sooth my soul, to nourish myself and reconnect with water and with nature. I believe things are happening FOR us not TO us. You might not be able to change all that is happening in the world or your body yet you can always choose how you are feeling with all that is happening and choose to do what feels right. Remember you are never alone. You can always email me at email@example.com or send me DM on instagram www.instagram.com/petiakolibova I love you, I see you, I receive you

The Investigation As we head into cold and flu season during the second year of the pandemic, it's important to provide support for your immune system - especially if you have an autoimmune disease like Hashimoto's, Lupus, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 1 Diabetes, Addison's, Grave's, and Celiac disease. As someone with Hashimoto's and who works with a lot of people with Hashimoto's I've created a protocol that I have been updating month after month and here is my latest version. This protocol is great for overall immunity and best of all, it is absolutely safe and recommended if you have an autoimmune disease as well. Herbs & Supplements to Avoid with Autoimmunity I always need to remind those with autoimmunity that the supplements you often hear about for supporting the immune system can do real damage if you have an autoimmune disease. These supplements stimulate the immune system. For those with autoimmunity, an overstimulated immune system can lead to flare ups. Here are the commonly suggested supplements to avoid: Echinacea Astragalus Reishi (or other immune supporting mushrooms) Elderberry My Autoimmune-safe Immune Support Protocol Here are the things that I take to give me the best chance for avoiding the flu, colds and other viruses as well as how I use them to decrease symptoms if I do get sick. These are my go-to recommendations: Vitamin C For general immune support, I usually recommend for an average, 150lb adult, a dosage of 1000 - 2000 mg of vitamin C per day. I personally use C+Biofizz from Designs for Health which you plop in water for a fizzy drink (if you prefer capsules, try their Stellar C). Please note that if you experience loose stools when taking vitamin C, you may want to try liposomal vitamin C because it helps the body absorb through the mucous membranes in your mouth first (just remember to keep it refrigerated.) If you are already sick, vitamin C can be very helpful in decreasing recovery time from infections, cold, flu or other viruses. You can increase your daily dosage but make sure you divide it and take it over the course of the day. That might mean taking 500 to 1000 mg of C (it can be powder, liposomal or capsules) every 30-60 min to bowel-tolerance (until you get diarrhea which is when your body says it's saturated and had enough). You would then restart it later in the day or next day. Do this for a few days when you are sick. There is a ton of research about high dose vitamin C in helping fight infections. Alternatively, you could look at getting a vitamin C infusion through an IV for prevention or treatment. Vitamin D Vitamin D is imperative for many different things but specifically supporting your immune health. Many people have low vitamin D and it tends to decrease during our shorter winter days here in the Northern Hemisphere. You can determine how much vitamin D you need by checking your levels through a blood test. Ideally, you want to be in the range of 50-80 on that test (the lab range is wider, typically 30-100). If you don't know your vitamin D levels (and you're not regularly supplementing) the typically recommended daily dose is 5,000, IU. If you are already sick, you will want to make sure that you are also taking vitamin K with your vitamin D to prevent calcification of tissues and organs. You can either take a vitamin K supplement or a multivitamin with vitamin K. I use Vitamin D Supreme which is a capsule but if you have issues with fat soluble vitamins, you could try a liquid form of vitamin D or, if you also struggle with energy issues, you could try Hi-Po Emulsi D3 from Designs for Health. Zinc & Quercetin There has been a lot of talk about Zinc online and in the media lately as a great way to boost your immune system during the COVID pandemic and into cold and flu season. What many people don't realize is that Zinc mainly stays outside the cell and you want it inside the cell for optimal immune support. One natural way to do that is by taking it alongside Quercetin. I take Designs for Health's Quercetin and Nettles blend and I recommend 250 milligrams to about 500 milligrams daily. Quercetin is something that I've added to my protocol a bit more recently because I'm seeing such great results. When combined with zinc, it's great for both prevention and also healing from infection. Please keep in mind that extended use of zinc can cause a copper deficiency so you want to make sure you are balancing these two minerals. If you are taking zinc for a long time, consider supplementing with copper or a multivitamin that contains copper. To be extra sure that you aren't deficient in copper (which can have serious health repercussions), a hair analysis will reveal both your copper and zinc levels. If you already have recent hair test results, you would want to look at, not just the individual zinc or the copper level, but actually, the ratio of the two. Ideally, the zinc to copper ratio should be right around 8. If your levels are lower than 8, then you can use more zinc. If you are above 8, you would need to supplement with copper. Garlic (Allicin) This one is a favorite because it really works and I typically don't see any side effects. Garlic has both antiviral and antimicrobial properties which means it can work on bacteria, yeast and other bugs in addition to viruses. For general immune support, I don't recommend it long-term (unless your practitioner has you on a specific protocol). Instead, consider garlic for immune support when you've been around someone who's sick, you've been exposed to a virus or when you feel like you're coming down with something. It can be difficult to get enough garlic in food form so supplementing is best. There are many on the market but my absolute favorite is Allimax. It's a potent (and patented) allicin extract which has all the benefit with way way less of that garlic odor. I recommend 4-6 capsules a day for the duration of illness or for a few days if exposed or feeling off. I also give this to my kids when they come home with a runny nose or they've been exposed to a virus and it's really fantastic. SPM's and Liposomal Glutathione Two things I've added recently to my immune support protocol are SPM's and liposomal glutathione. SPM's stands for Pro Resolving Mediators and they literally go in and resolve inflammation. I think it's one of my most favorite vitamins these days. SPM is great at dealing with all types of inflammation so the immune system is more balanced. I use 1 per day for overall immune support and balance and up to 6 per day if you are sick for about a week. What is really neat about SPM's is that I have found it to work really great for autoimmune flare ups such as Hashimoto's flares and any other up ticks in autoimmunity. You would take 6 per day for about 7-10 days and then can lower to 1-3 per day for maintenance. I use it myself and really love it. There are two brands that I recommend for SPM. The first is Metagenics SPM Active which is a bit more potent but also a bit more expensive. I also like Designs for Health's SPM Supreme, which is less expensive but because it has slightly less and you have to take a bit more of it. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and immune balancer that you can take every day. I typically recommend a teaspoon a day but if you're sick, you can increase that to one teaspoon twice a day. There are a lot of different brands to choose from and after trying pretty much everything out there, I use Apex's Trizomal Glutathione. I find it to be the most potent and best absorbed out of all of the ones that I've tried. And it tastes better than some of the other glutathione I've tried. Fermented Beverages for Gut Health Our microbiome is another key for balancing the immune system so it's important to support gut health. One thing that I've been getting really good results from is a fermented beverage called R's Koso. This Japanese fermented drink is made from more than a hundred different vegetables, fruits, and plants. In other words, it's full of plant fibers to feed the bugs that help keep our gut flora happy. Often we eat the same things day in and day out but our gut health needs more variety to stay healthy which is why this drink is so great. You can try it out at rskoso.com and use the promo code INNA10 to save 10% Liquid Silver (Silvercillin) This last supplement has been on my list for a while and I still love it. Silvercillin is a powerful antimicrobial and it can be used orally or topically. I recommend taking 1-2 TBSP orally a few times a day when you are sick or if you know you've been exposed. I don't recommend this for long term use but it's great to have around the house. You can even use it topically to treat rashes, burns, cuts and even acne. Healthy Immune Habits Nasal Rinse One habit that I think really helps to support my immune system is nasal irrigation. Some of you may have heard of a neti pot for clearing your nasal passage. I use something similar called the NeilMed but I find it easier to use. I like to add a tablespoon of Silvercillin mixed into the distilled water and salt solution I use for my nasal irrigation. It's a really great way to boost antimicrobial activity. Stress Reduction Another important habit to adopt to help support your immune system is to be aware of your stress levels. Your immune system can't function optimally if you are in a chronic stress state. So, take a minute to reduce your stress by taking a few breaths, reframing things or even looking out at the sky and nature. It can really help to quiet the stress response. Save on Immune Boosting I have all the products on my practice website Complete Nutrition and Wellness. We have a coupon so that you can save 10% on all products by Designs for Health and that coupon can be used as many times as you like (not just on your first order).

How to Prevent and Reverse Autoimmune Disease Using The Power of Food | This episode is brought to you by Joovv and HigherDOSE.Autoimmune diseases are an increasing issue in our country, with over 80 million Americans dealing with some form or another. Type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto's, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, and Crohn's disease are just some of the more than 70 identified forms of autoimmunity that leave people feeling sick, lost, and powerless. By identifying the specific type of immune dysfunction that's occurring (autoimmune doesn't always equal overactive) we're able to identify the best course of treatment for optimal results. That can even mean remission. In today's mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Elroy Vojdani and Dr. Terry Wahls about why there is an explosion of autoimmune diseases, and how to prevent and treat autoimmune conditions. Dr. Elroy Vojdani is the founder of Regenera Medical, a boutique Functional Medicine practice. Dr. Vojdani has co-authored over 20 articles in the scientific literature and continues an integral role in research related to autoimmune, neurodegenerative, and autoinflammatory conditions. He is also the co-author of a medical textbook entitled Food Associated Autoimmunity. Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. Dr. Wahls was diagnosed with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, and was confined to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. She didn't buy into the limits defined by her diagnosis and restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain, and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life.

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let's get started! Darren: Good day Dr Cabral. Hope all is well with you and family. I read James Nestor's Breathing book on your recommendation and after hearing him on your show. What are your thoughts on "mewing" as recommended in the book. If it's something you believe has benefits (or drawbacks) is it possible for you to discuss it further? Thank you Anonymous: Hi dr cabral, thank you infinitely for all you do and your passion for sharing your knowledge with us.. i love listening to the podcast. My question is for my daughter who is 18. She is in college and is busy. She enjoys exercising and is on the cheer team so lots of tumbling and is active but she suffers from anxiety. Some days worse than others, especially these days. I too have it. I take the adrenal soothe. Would that be something that she could take as well ? Any other suggestions ? Thanks so much again - take care Nicole: Hi Dr Cabral! First off, thank you for all of the time and effort you put in…it is GREATLY appreciated! I have been struggling with severe cramping, bloating and back pain about 7 days before my period starts. I've also had lab work done over the years and it has shown that my progesterone typically peaks within a high range during first half of luteal phase but then drops off “earlier than desired” (a quote from my RE). My question is, could my low progesterone be solely due to high cortisol (which I already know is one of my issues) or could it be caused by insufficient egg quality/premature ovarian failure? Is there any way to know for sure? Can the two be related? Any other advice on how to increase egg quality would be greatly appreciated! Carrie-Ann: Thank you a million times over for all that you do for this world. 12 months ago I did the big 5 labs and in the last 12 months I have done the 21 detox, CBO protocol with finisher and citrocidal drops, intestinal cleanse, heavy metal detox, 7 day detox, another 3 weeks of citrocidal drops (as symptoms hadn't cleared) and I continue to take your DNS, DFVB, magnesium, zinc, probiotic, vitamin C and D, fish and fish oil daily. I am IHP level 2 certified and also I have been a chiropractor for the last 20 years. I've lived a natural healthy lifestyle for the last 15-20 years. After having my first baby 10 years ago I developed psoriasis and now also have high grade cervical dysplasia. Since starting your protocols I've had some great things change. My two fungal toenails are almost all grown out normal and I've had 2 plantar warts on the soles of my feet for years and they are both gone. I'm thrilled about both these changes as it really lets me know things are improving internally. Although I have seen no change in my psoriasis and I still have high grade cervical dysplasia (confirmed 2 weeks ago with biopsy and colposcopy). So finally to my question, what more can I do? I have no other symptoms. Digestion is great, I sleep well, my stress levels are low and I love my life. Lilly: Hi doctor Cabral, After you talked about your experience with a CGM, I started wearing one and am learning so much about my diet. Thank you for that great tip! I've noticed that my sugar drops extremely low a few times a night and I usually wake up when that happens. I think I know what's causing it: I eat a very early dinner and fast until breakfast. And I know that in order to prevent the nighttime dips, it would be good to eat something before sleep, but I really don't want to break my (clean) fast. Is there anything you could recommend to prevent the nighttime hypoglycemia, without using food? Thanks so much! Lilly Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, First off I want to say thank you for all that you do. Your passion for helping people is truly remarkable and it is much appreciated! My question is regarding the use of iodine with autoimmune diseases, particularly Hashimotos. I have done a lot of research on this and listened to some of the top autoimmune specialists and most of them seem to agree that taking iodine, whether from foods or supplements, can do more harm than good. Their argument is that an autoimmune condition is basically and overactive immune system and Iodine can also increase the activity of the immune system, which in turn increases the autoimmunity. They claim there are numerous research papers in scientific literature that shows when Hashimotos patients are given iodine, their autoimmune condition can flare up. I would love to hear you thoughts on this and whether or not you recommend iodine for your patients that have Hashimotos. Thank you so much!!

If we are around really toxic, negative people, that is just as bad for our health vs someone who eats Big Macs every day.” — Lori Bouchard “We all have cancer cells. That's the reality of it. … So we have to look at how our immune system is focusing and getting rid of these abnormal cells every single day.” — Lori Bouchard “[My] mission [is] to help people realize our [bodies are] phenomenal and amazing. My purpose is really spreading that message and helping people realize how powerful they are.” — Lori Bouchard
Longevity in the art world is something we take for granted, whether it's Juxtapoz at 28 years old or printmakers who perfect their craft for decades. It was refreshing to speak with Spoke Art Gallery and Hashimoto Contemporary's Ken Harman on his 10-year anniversary as a gallery owner, just as he opened a gallery in his third city in America. Now with spaces in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, with a roster of artists that stretches across the world, it's been a busy decade for Harman and his team, and the pandemic only expanded what his gallery reputation means to his collector and artist roster. We sat down with Ken to talk about that relationship with his artists, the growth of company, and how his roots with the Obama art era in 2008 to his Bad Dads-Wes Anderson inspired shows as Spoke Art allowed his to grow as Hashimoto Contemporary. Now that Los Angeles has opened this Fall, Harman told us about the complexities and excitement of running 3 spaces as well as how much his gallery team has empowered the direction of the gallery. With shows recently with Jillian Evelyn, Pat Perry, Joel Daniel Phillips and more, Ken has his finger on the pulse. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 075 was recorded via Skype in Margate, England and NYC in early October, 2021.

People who undergo painful and traumatic experiences tend to suffer from chronic stress. Cortisol, a primary stress hormone, increases as a result. The higher amounts of this hormone in the body cause a drop in the levels of progesterone, a female hormone that is crucial for the regulation of ovulation and menstruation. When this happens, estrogen dominance occurs, bringing with it a myriad of symptoms, including lumpy and fibrocystic breasts, period problems, thyroid nodules, weight gain, and hot flashes. In today's episode of From Betrayal to Breakthrough, Integrative hormone and nutrition expert Magdalena Wszelaki shares with us some excellent ways on how she was able to restore her hormonal balance, so like her, we can also look, feel, and live better. About Guest/Topic Magdalena Wszelaki is the founder of Hormones Balance, a thriving online community dedicated to helping women balance hormones naturally. Magdalena is a nutrition coach, certified herbalist, a published bestselling cookbook author, speaker, and educator. She's got a long history of hormonal challenges. Her health crisis was the direct result of her highly stressful life in advertising - starting from autoimmune conditions such as Graves' and Hashimoto's Disease to total burnout and estrogen dominance. Today, she is in full remission and lives a symptom-free life. She has dedicated herself to teaching women how to find their sacred hormonal balance with her books, online programs, and education. In This Episode Who is Magdalena Wszelaki? [0:08] What happens when you have stress-related symptoms and what is estrogen dominance? [1:50] What can you do to manage your hormones? [13:16] …and many more Quotes “I think you can only improve your health when you look back at what has happened and then you know, say, hey, look.. I'm never going to this again, right? Or if I'm stressed and it's inevitable because a lot of times, we just can't avoid it then, I'm gonna equip myself with all the tools I know, that I've learned to really increase the sense of resistance in my body. That I've got a little armor on me, right?” [12:11] “When you start off your day with a lot of sugar and even if it's just a bowl of cereals or a bowl of oatmeal with fruit on it and drizzled with some maple syrup, well guess what? You're just giving yourself a sugar bomb. And the problem is that when you're already stressed out, you're already throwing your hormones out of balance with stress…remember that sugar is insulin and insulin is a hormone, too, so you're really adding to the fire.” [27:37] “Pick something that you can really do something really, really nourishing, nurturing for yourself in time of stress…The truth is you don't just have to do everything...It's really one step at a time.

The Case: Denise has Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism and has been trying to balance her thyroid for years. She tried Synthroid, Levothyoxine and Armour but these left her feeling ‘off'. It seemed impossible to find something that would get her T4, T3 and TSH levels into range and give her ample energy. I knew that while she was on the right track, we needed a slightly different type of approach to solve her health mystery. When the standard solutions don't work, you might need to go custom. The Investigation I immediately thought of the work that Jim Hrncir has been doing with compounding thyroid medication. This is something he is incredibly passionate about ever since his own wife had challenges similar to Denise's. You may recall that Jim was on a previous episode talking about compounding hormones for treating menopause and perimenopause. It's episode 96 if you missed it. Typical Thyroid Treatment I talk a lot about Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism on this show. When we talk about treating the thyroid, the most common option is Synthroid. Synthroid is levothyroxine sodium which is synthetic levothyroxine. Tirosint is another brand of this same synthetic hormone but with no fillers. Synthroid is mostly prescribed by conventional doctors. While it replaces the T4 that the thyroid is not producing or producing enough of, the body still has to convert that T4 into T3. That's why it's important to test T3 levels to make sure that the T4 you are getting from Synthroid is being converted. Some people may be under converting which is why they are not getting full resolution of symptoms with T4 only medications. Going Beyond Synthroid Some patients aren't happy with the synthetic hormone options either because they are looking for a more natural solution or they aren't getting results from the synthetic hormone. This brings them to desiccated thyroid which comes under several brand names including Westhroid, Armour Thyroid, and Nature-Throid. Each option has different additional ingredients beyond the porcine desiccated thyroid and these fillers can sometimes be an issue. Supply of these options can sometimes be threatened because of supply chain issues and heavy regulations from the FDA. Sensitivity to Synthroid and other Thyroid Treatments The thyroid plays a very big role in how the body functions so it's important to pay attention to how well it is working by testing all the thyroid hormones - T4 and T3. It is important to have enough but at the same time, not too much. Getting too much thyroid hormone poses its own issues which include: Heart palpitations Nervousness Tachycardia (racing heart) Hot flashes Insomnia Brain fog Feeling wired Jim points out that before concluding that these issues are related to the thyroid medication, it's important to check thyroid levels and also check for other deficiencies, in particular low iron. The Compounding Option Compounding thyroid is the practice of combining various thyroid treatments in a custom way. Jim was a pioneer in this field. The process allows for highly customized dosages based on patient and lab test responses to micro-tweaking the dose. This dose then comes in a natural base with no toxic fillers. Also, once the correct custom formula is found, the compound can even be provided in a time release capsule that gives you just the right amount of thyroid, all day long, especially when T3 is involved. Accessing Compounded Thyroid Medication Jim's pharmacy is in Texas and he only serves his state. There are however 7000+ other compounding pharmacies across the country, but when you look for one in your area, you want to look for quality. If you are interested in finding a compounding pharmacy that can help you with a custom thyroid solution, Jim suggests you look for a compounding pharmacy that is PCAB (The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board) accredited. Compounding as a practice can have so many advantages as so much customization is available in natural forms. Unfortunately, compounding is under fire right now. Please check out compounding.com for suggestions on what you can do and how you can support the continued availability of compounded medications. Mystery Solved It was clear that Denise needed a custom solution to her thyroid issue. Based on the history of her blood work, it seemed that Denise needed both the T4 and T3. It also seemed like she might be reacting to some of the fillers in the commercially available T4. And, the desiccated thyroid she tried left her feeling wired and didn't sufficiently lower her TSH. When I looked at her labs after she took dessiccated thyroid, I could see that her T3 was high (which would explain the ‘wired' feeling). This made it clear that she needed more T4 and less T3 than the fixed ratio in DTE's and she would benefit from getting the T3 in a time release capsule so that it would be less jarring to her system. For her, compounding was going to be the best option. Conclusion We worked with her doctor to prescribe a synthetic T3 at a lower dosage and we got it in a time-released form. She started with 5 mcg which worked well but her T3 was still a bit low. We bumped it up to 10 mcg and that brought her T3 into range and she felt better.

Hablar con un medium psíquico es interesantísimo, sobretodo cuando estamos muchas veces tan lejanos a poder estar conectados con los seres en el plano espiritual. Es un don y hoy platicamos con Zulema sobre todo lo que significa ser medium, cómo se realiza la comunicación con otros seres, cómo es una sesión de lectura, cómo se cuida y qué tipo de información es la que recibe.Zulema es autora, médium psíquico, conocida como La Médium Latina, filántropa, y sobreviviente de cáncer de sarcoma.Nacida en Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, 1973 en una familia hispana. Siempre se ha sentido destinada a alcanzar objetivos de desafío a la vida y a ayudar a los individuos que sufren en este mundo rápido y lleno de dolor.Desde que la operaron dos veces cuando tenía dos meses de edad hasta que la diagnosticaron múltiples enfermedades autoinmunes, incluyendo artritis reumatoide crónica, retinopatía autoinmune, tiroiditis de Hashimoto, trastorno del tejido conectivo, lupus y muchas otras condiciones médicas poco comunes, se ha enfrentado a desafíos que amenazaron su vida y que le han mostrado lo importante y valioso que es cada respiración. El sentido de fuerza y determinación que le inculcó mi madre, después de que mi padre falleciera cuando ella tenía sólo 13 meses de edad, es lo que me ha mantenido todos estos años, luchando contra los desafíos y las condiciones médicas que se avecinan para aprovechar al máximo el tiempo en este hermoso y valioso mundo.En febrero de 2015, se sometió a una resección de tumor en el músculo anal y el músculo glúteo. Fue entonces cuando me enteré de que tenía un sarcoma de tejido blando, un cáncer esporádico y huérfano.Decidió tomar el asunto en sus propias manos y me mudé al MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) en Houston, en busca del mejor centro de sarcomas del mundo.Con el objetivo de difundir la conciencia sobre este tipo de cáncer, emprendió un viaje por todo el mundo cuando y conoció a la cantante Adele con la que compartió escensario para ser una de las primeras voces mundiales para los pacientes de sarcoma. Sobre su historia de cómo es que decidió compartir su don, nos cuenta que a la edad de cinco años, empeezó a ver, oír y sentir la presencia de presencias que no eran de este mundo. Su madre solía llamarlos sus "amigo imaginarios". Pero se sintieron muy reales para mí toda mi vida. Cuando tenía ocho años, tuvo su primera aparición en color. Más tarde, a lo largo de su adolescencia, solía tener premoniciones sobre accidentes. No fue hasta 2018, tres días después de su 45 cumpleaños, cuando conoció a una renombrada médium psíquica para una lectura individual que, antes de que comenzara le dijo: "Eres un médium; eres un psíquico. Oh, me encanta leer médiums psíquicos. ¿Vas a aceptar finalmente que eres un médium psíquico y no te vas a resistir?" Fue entonces cuando decidió aceptar su don, ya que ya no se podía negar. Se reveló como médium psíquico el 18 de julio de 2018 en una presentación EN VIVO en Despierta América.

Nicole J. Georges is a graphic novelist and podcaster from Portland, Oregon. Nicole's podcast, Relative Fiction, adapted from her award-winning graphic memoir, Calling Dr. Laura. She is also the author of the book Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home, and the queer arts & vegan food review podcast, Sagittarian Matters. In this episode, Nicole and I cover topics ranging from punk righteousness, drawing comics, family secrets, podcasting, twelve step programs, chosen queer family, encopresis and making space for gentleness. Nicole makes the astute observation that “to be an adult, maybe, is to be less fragmented.” I urge you to check out all of Nicole's work. She is prolific and funny and powerfully insightful. Since recording this episode I listened to every episode of the Relative Fiction podcast and I must say, if you are interested in complicated families, queerness, attachment styles, intergenerational trauma transmission, this podcast has that and more, so definitely check it out. Email Asher at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the waitlist for Embodied Testimony, a 3 month program intensive, starting DECEMBER 5th The theme for this Embodied Testimony will be, quite broadly, surviving adult life as a parentified child LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience. Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another.

These are the 6 most common root causes of Hashimoto's thyroiditis including triggers that you should avoid. These triggers can CAUSE a Hashimoto's flare up. Today we are going to be discussing the most common root CAUSES of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease and must be triggered before it manifests in YOUR body. When we talk about the root cause of Hashimoto's what we are really talking about are those things that trigger Hashimoto's in thyroid patients. These triggers can either cause Hashimoto's directly or lead to a flare-up. Understanding these triggers is very important because it may help you direct and target your treatment. If you can do this then you may be able to reduce or reverse your condition. These are the top 6 most common root causes that I see: #1. Stress (emotional, physical, social) Stress from ANY cause is probably the single most common trigger of Hashimoto's that I see. This stress can either be physical such as a car accident, it can be social such as a divorce, or it can be emotional such as problems with your spouse/work life, etc. #2. EBV viral infection EBV stands for Epstein Barr virus and it is a virus in the herpes family. This viral infection has been known to trigger Hashimoto's in susceptible individuals. Some people end up with chronic low-grade EBV infections that can be treated. #3. H. Pylori bacterial infection H. pylori stands for Helicobacter pylori and it is the bacteria responsible for the development of gastric ulcers. It is also an important factor in the development of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The good news is that this bacteria CAN be treated with prescription antibiotics and herbal antibiotics. #4. Nutrient deficiencies Nutrient deficiencies, especially Vitamin D, zinc, selenium, and iodine, can all increase your risk of developing Hashimoto's. Selenium and glutathione play a protective role in your thyroid gland and prevent damage from inflammation. #5. SIBO/SIFO (bacterial/fungal overgrowth syndromes) SIBO refers to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and SIFO refers to small intestinal fungal overgrowth. #6. Gluten sensitivity (Celiac & NCGS) Both Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (nonceliac gluten sensitivity) result in damage to the gut lining and increase your risk of developing Hashimoto's. Avoiding gluten is an easy solution if this is your problem! Do you know what triggered or caused your Hashimoto's? This list isn't exhaustive but it includes some of the most common triggers!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Tracy Duhs. Helping people activate their vitality and feel alive has been Tracy's lifelong mission. Growing up in a missionary home cultivated her profound sense of compassion and her desire to educate on the simple foundations needed to look and feel our best. By the time she was 15, Tracy had already begun her undergraduate education in medicine. At 16, Tracy shadowed a missionary doctor working in an indigenous village in Guatemala, where she gained hands-on surgical and medical training. The time she spent there opened her eyes and enlarged her heart, to the need for wholistic wellness education and foundations. After her experience in Guatemala, Tracy decided to forgo a traditional allopathic medical career in favor of one that focused on regenerative care and education.When Tracy became a mother, her professional path took a personal turn. Her first child, Grace, was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroid and alopecia universalis at the age of two. Emboldened by her daughter's struggle, Tracy began her journey into hydration education by pursuing a PhD in the field of biogenetics as well as shadowing doctors from all around the globe to learn their different approaches to disease.It was through these experiences that Tracy became passionate about hydration as she learned the power hydration has to transform overall health and wellness in all people. Today, Tracy works as a modern wellness advocate specializing in the restorative powers of intelligent hydration.She has parlayed her wealth of experience and knowledge into a multi-dimensional career in wellness advocacy and education, starting with her podcast, HYDRATE. Tracy frequently consults large corporations and hotels to help build and facilitate wellness experiences. She also serves as the Director of the International Brain Summit. Tracy is the founder the Sanctuary Wellness Experience in San Diego and co-founder of Hydrate at the Sanctuary. In this episode, Tracy explains why the world needs to learn more about hydration. Just because you're drinking water during the day, that doesn't mean you'll be hydrated. Tracy explains how this is possible and what you can do to avoid dehydration. Plus, Tracy talks about some of her favorite health hacks that will help you stay hydrated, like sunlight, minerals, and grounding. Tune in as we chat about the importance of teaching our children about hydration and why Tracy is such a fan of hydrogen water.

[00:30] Tracy Explains Why The World Needs To Learn More About Hydrating 9% of the molecules in our body are water molecules. If we're 98.9% water molecules, why is there not more talk about hydration and water? Tracy has dedicated her life to understanding hydrating. She loves to bring people together so that we can understand hydration at a higher level. [02:30] Drinking Water Isn't The Only Way You'll Stay Hydrated The chemistry of the water is going to determine how your biochemical processes absorb it. Also, the health of your microbiome will determine how you process water. If you're moving, your body will play a part in hydrating. Sunlight and nutrition will also assist with activating water. [04:30] Does The pH of Water Really Matter When It Comes To Hydration? The pH of water is irrelevant. Instead, we should focus on the constituents of what we are ingesting. Anything that you're ingesting, you want to look at what's inside of that ingredient. Electrolytes are minerals in a liquid solution. We need electrolytes for water to move throughout bodies. [09:30] Do You Live Near A Mountain Spring? If Not, Tracy Gives Tips On Getting Water Tracy is not fortunate enough to live next to a mountain spring. So, she can't go grab water from a mountain spring every single day. Tracy has tested her tap water. There are chemical contaminations in her water. So, she has a reverse osmosis system in her home. It filters out the chemical contamination. Later, Tracy adds minerals to her reverse osmosis water. Now, the water can become structured. [12:50] Why Is Everyone So Dehydrated In Our Modern World? From birth, we are not drinking the right water, and we are not drinking enough. Also, we are living sedentary lifestyles. Plus, we're sitting under artificial lighting all day, and we're not getting enough of the full spectrum sunlight outside. The lack of minerals, sunlight, and water leads to dehydration. [21:20] How Grounding and Sunshine Can Play A Critical Role In Hydration We're energetic beings, and we need to charge ourselves. At night, we plug in our phones and computers. We need to do the same thing with our bodies. Go outside and get sunshine during sunrise and sunset. The red light nourishment will be critical for your body. Take your shoes off when you're outside. It will help relax your body and charge your body. If your cells aren't charged, it doesn't matter how much water you intake; that water isn't able to do its job. [29:55] Hydrogen Water Can Help Reduce Inflammatory Responses Hydrogen is neutral, and it can get into the cell very easily. It's the smallest atom. You can't overdose on it, and you can't hurt yourself with it. Hydrogen water helps modulate inflammation in the body. From Tracy's personal experience, hydrogen water helps relieve her of brain fog.

Everyone desires to be healthy; most people are trying their hardest, but they just haven't been given the education. We need to teach our children about hydration, nutrition, grounding, minerals, sleep, community, exercise, and sunlight. Even if the brain is even 2% dehydrated, we're going to have inhibited cognition and neuroinflammation. Our children can have trouble thinking and learning if they are dehydrated. AND MUCH MORE!

191: Wild & Well: Dani's Six Commonsense Steps to Radical Healing Dani Williamson is my guest today, and let me tell you, she has been through so much with her health until she found functional medicine after she was diagnosed with lupus. Today she is thriving! Yes, she is another example that you can overcome autoimmunity! She's coming out with her new book, "Wild and Well, Dani's 6 Commonsense Steps to Radical Healing." Dani Williamson MSN, FNP is a graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Nursing Nurse-Midwifery and Family Nurse Practitioner program, Dani practices the art of medicine by balancing traditional and integrative therapies. Dani encourages her patients to step out of the realm of “normal” and reach “optimal” health. Dani was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome in 1985. She struggled with chronic itching of her arms and legs for several years, was diagnosed with Lupus in her early 30's and then, not surprisingly, prescribed psych medications to manage her emotions. Not once was she ever told “your diet controls your symptoms” or asked, “what are you eating?” by the 10 specialists she saw over 24 years. She continued eating a Standard American Diet as her symptoms progressed, and prescriptions to treat those increased as well. It wasn't until she began practicing integrative medicine after graduating from nurse practitioner school that she was educated on the importance of healing the gut. Her story of healing is an inspiration and source of hope to her patients. Dani owns Integrative Family Medicine in Franklin, TN. She focuses on gut, thyroid, hormone, and adrenal health with her patients. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, which is autoimmune thyroid disease, is her passion. Her approach embodies a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual process to healing. She believes God designed our bodies to heal themselves in our 40's, 50's, 60's or even 70's. She stresses the importance of eating real food, as well as cleaning up the environment around us one step at a time. Dani is a sought-after speaker at various conferences and workshops where she leads discussions on gut, thyroid, adrenal, hormone, and brain health. She is on the board of Middle Tennessee chapter of the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and believes strongly in addressing issues of adverse childhood trauma and its relation to overall long-term health conditions. Dani is a single mother of two grown children and attends Brentwood Baptist Church. She loves traveling and participating in medical mission work. She runs a support group for her Hashimoto's thyroiditis patients, offers community education at the clinic and has a weekly Facebook Live show on Sunday evenings named “Sunday Night Service” which addresses various health topics. She is also the founder of a Facebook community that continues to grow monthly with members from across the world that are dedicated to healing their bodies from the INSIDE OUT: Inside~Out Healing from Within. Her first book Wild & Well: Dani's Six Commonsense Steps to Radical Healing is being released November 9, 2021. She believes your health is not rocket science, and healing shouldn't be either.

Recently, a 43 year old listener sent in a question about how many embryos (statistically) she would need to freeze to have a significant chance at a live birth. Here's her question, "Statistically, how many embryos (day two or day three) would a 43 year old woman have to freeze to have one live birth? I know that everyone is different, but I'm trying to get a sense of math and attrition rate. I am 43, almost 44. AMH is 0.4. I have DOR and Hashimoto's, and I'm being treated by an endocrinologist and functional doctor because of my DOR. My RE has recommended that we freeze day two embryos. I'm trying to see what I would need to bank to reach a statistically significant chance of having a live birth." You can tune in for my full answer, along with the answer to other questions.

The Functional Medicine Approach To Gallbladder Disease | This episode is brought to you by Essentia and PaleovalleyThe gallbladder is an organ we don't often pay much attention to, but if you or a loved one has had gallstones, you know they can be very painful. About 6-9% of adults experience gallstones and their associated symptoms which can include nausea and vomiting. The gallbladder plays a vital role in our digestive process by storing bile which helps us break down fats. If your bile is imbalanced, gallstones may form. The conventional approach to relieving gallbladder pain and discomfort is through the use of medication or surgery to remove the gallbladder, whereas the Functional Medicine approach seeks to uncover the root cause of the problem and approaches treatment from that place.In this episode, Dr. Hyman discusses gallbladder disease with Dr. George Papanicolaou. They talk about how they work with patients to determine what is causing the disease, and how an imbalance in the composition of bile can also result in gut problems like dysbiosis and SIBO. They also provide tips on supporting your body to optimize digesting fats if you've had your gallbladder removed.George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine Practitioner. Upon graduation from his residency he joined the Indian Health Service. He worked on the Navajo reservation for 4 years at the Chinle Comprehensive Medical Facility where he served as the Outpatient Department Coordinator. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. He practiced with a philosophy centered on personal relationships and treating the whole person, not just not the disease. He called that philosophy “Whole Life Wellness”. Over time as the healthcare system made it harder for patients to receive this kind of personal care Dr. Papanicolaou decided a change was needed. He began training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health—a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.This episode is brought to you by Essentia and Paleovalley.Right now, you can take advantage of Essentia's incredible Labor Day offer of 25% off with 2 free pillows (normally a $300 value) by going to learn.myessentia.com/DrMarkHyman.
