I spent a few days in Palm Springs last week visiting doctors who carry Thorne Research products and I’m consistently inspired by them. I met with one doctor who’s one of 50+ physicians at Eisenhower Medical Center who practices integrative medicine there. The cool thing is, the other physicians all send their patients to him to learn about how to change their diets and lifestyles to make permanent changes in their health. There IS a shift occurring in the world of medicine and I believe and hope that we will continue to move from sick care and disease management to HEALTH care!
Tonight I’m interviewing Dr. Alan Christianson, coauthor of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Thyroid Disease.
If you’re feeling sluggish, can’t lose weight, just feel run down, you might have low thyroid function. Did you know that Levothyroxine for hypothyroidism was the 3rd most prescribed drug in the US in 2011? Did you also know that the most common cause is Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune condition? Tonight, we will break everything down and Dr. Christianson will answer these questions and more:
- What is the best diet for optimal thyroid health?
- How does thyroid disease affect people?
- Which thyroid markers should you get tested for if you suspect you have a problem?
- What is the difference between hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism?
