“If you have an unhealthy gut, you could be missing out on about 25% of your thyroid hormone.”
Reed Davis, Founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, is a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Nutritional Therapist. He is the founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. Having experience with over 10,000 clients, he is known as one of the most experienced clinicians in the world.
In this episode (available here or on all major podcasting platforms), he explains why thyroid issues are symptoms of underlying issues that must be looked at as a whole.
I’ll be honest. Because thyroid issues are not my personal health concern or my coaching focus, I don’t know as much about it as I would like to. In this episode, Reed simplifies very complicated concepts in order to break down the root causes of thyroid problems and show that it is intricately connected with every other process in the body. I learned so much from this mind-blowing conversation, and I know you will too!
