When Dr. Nikolas Hedberg, a well-known, well-respected and passionate functional medicine practitioner, asked me if I’d be interested in being interviewed for his podcast, I was thrilled.
At forty minutes long, episode #40 of his podcast show is packed with information on why I started The Invisible Hypothyroidism, what key pieces of advice I’d give to all thyroid patients and what has helped me to get better, including the valuable advice and guidance from my own private functional medicine practitioner.
(please note that the transcript generated from the audio isn’t entirely accurate, such as it picking up ‘hypothyroidism’ as ‘hyperthyroidism’ among other things!)
The book Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate: When You’re Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired, which I talk about on the podcast.
