Great podcast for Thyroid Problems!

I've learned so much from these podcasts about hypothyroidism and Hashimotos. Because of this and Dr Isabella Wenz I've started on a new road to getting my health back under the care of a Integrative Medicine doctor.

Definitely worth listening too!!

This podcast is direct and is very informational. A podcast on the thyroid might seem like a specific topic, but when you see how much of an impact the thyroid has on every aspect of your life it becomes more like an all encompassing podcast. I have learned so much from just the few that I have listened to!
