Heal Your Thyroid and Reverse Hashimotos

Can you reverse Hashimotos? Or you may be asking, what exactly is that? 

What if your thyroid issues weren’t just thyroid issues but an autoimmune disease and you didn’t know it? Could the fatigue and hair loss you’ve experienced be fixed with changes in lifestyle and reverse Hashimotos?

Often unfortunately, it’s still not all that clear that your food, nutrition, toxic exposure, or ability to detox have a significant impact on your thyroid. My guest today shares her own story and we deep dive into tips for reducing heavy metal consumption and testing to ask for and why.
