    Reversing Hashimoto's with Nutrition

    Reversing Hashimoto's with Nutrition

    I’m really excited about today’s episode about Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and its influence on food & mood for a few reasons: first, the topic is fascinating and really important to a number of people, and also because I’m thrilled to introduce everyone to my guest, Sunny Brigham.

    Sunny is a board-certified clinical & integrative nutritionist with a Masters in Nutrition & Integrative Health and is a Certified Nutrition Specialist. She helps women reduce fatigue, eliminate bloat, and lose weight by focusing on healing the digestive tract and repairing their relationship with food.

    Full disclosure: Sunny and I went through grad school and clinical supervision together, so we can carry on for days! But, I really wanted Sunny to come on the podcast because she is well-versed in hypothyroid management and putting Hashimoto's into remission, which is where we’re going to focus today’s episode of the Food-Mood Files.

    Elimination: The Gold Standard

    Elimination: The Gold Standard

    The Elimination Diet is a useful tool in my practice, but it's not for everyone. This episode was recorded from a presentation I gave to fellow health practitioners on the usefulness of this tool and my own approach in delivering it to avoid all of those feelings of restriction that its name brings up.

    This episode includes the following topics:


    What is an elimination diet.
    Who can benefit from an elimination diet.
    Who should NOT try an elimination diet.
    How to customize your elimination experience.
    How mindset plays a large part in success.
    How an elimination diet can kick-start your health journey.
