Caring for your thyroid from a natural perspective is why I invited Dr. Lisa Weeks back to the podcast for another informative and fantastic chat about all things thyroid.
Jun 8, 2021 | Joy McCarthy

Dr. Lisa’s previous episode was centered around the subject of stress and it was a huge hit with listeners, so she is back again this week to dig into the world of thyroid disorders. As you may remember, Dr. Lisa is a practicing Naturopathic Doctor who is full of fascinating information and advice, so once again, you’re going to want to get out your pen and paper to take notes during yet another amazing episode.

Up to 200 million people suffer from thyroid disease. In the U.S., that number is around 20 million. 

Caring for your thyroid from a natural perspective is what Dr. Lisa Weeks is an absolute expert in. If you suffer from any thyroid condition, you'll also find this episode empowering as Lisa shares nutrition and lifestyle habits to support your thyroid from an evidence-based natural health approach.

I’ve sent this podcast to a few friends, like me, have problems with their thyroid. I’m making an appointment with a Naturopath, thanks Joy!
