Best thyroid podcast available!

Dr. Eric is a genius. This is one of the most informative podcasts I’ve ever found. I’m obsessed and listen to almost every episode. I’ve also read over 20 books on thyroid health and Dr. Eric’s book The Thyroid Debacle was by far the best. I’ve made huge strides in my health thanks to his work!

Episode with Tara Quintanar

Excellent content.. The conversation around being over prescribed and over medicated is my favorite subject of your discussions. Whether is sex hormones or thyroid hormones.. it is not the fix!

Well-made, highly researched up-to-date info on thyroid health

Recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. I’ve been binging on this podcast for a few weeks. I have learned so incredibly much in this short time. Everything is explained thoroughly and to the point. They take the time to explain things in lay-man terms but this does not mean they’re skimping on details. I also appreciate the way the podcasts flows: no interrupting each other, they stay on topic, they don’t go off on personal-belief tangents but instead speak from their experiences. They’ve had a great variety of guests with specialties that tie-in to thyroid health in ways you might not think. I don’t usually write reviews… actually I never write reviews lol but I have to give credit where credit is due as I have gained so much from Dr. Eric and Dr. Erica and their guests.
