Ep 19: Dr. Carolyn Stone is a licensed Naturopathic physician in the state of Arizona and owner of Stone Naturopathic. She Developed a passion for helping women with gut, hormone, adrenal, and thyroid issues after growing tired of hearing that women were not being heard by their health practitioners and instead brushed off or given an unnecessary prescription. Dr. Stone takes a straightforward approach to patient care and offers an enthusiastic delivery of education in both her practice and on social media. In this episode we compare and contrast the distinction between current and less conventional health care models, patient care vs patient management, & how doctors can be a partner in their patient’s health care. Stone helps to unravel the sticky web that understanding our thyroid can sometimes present and how to approach treatment through lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and medication. And, she walks through how both doctors and patients can and should advocate for themselves in a world of predetermined treatments and health outcomes.
