Ep. 24 - Beyond Thyroid Medication: A Holistic Approach to Hashimoto’s



Episode 24

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is one of the most common types of autoimmune disease that causes an underactive thyroid. It’s more common in women, and although it’s not clear what causes it, we do know what can trigger the disease.

In this episode, Nicole breaks down the functional medicine approach to addressing and managing Hashimoto’s. Nicole discusses the limitations of conventional medicine, nutrient deficiencies, the need for immune system regulation, gut health, hormonal balance, environmental toxins, food sensitivities, and genetic factors. She also provides a brief introduction to her personalised program, The MitoImmune Way™  for those seeking support for thyroid or immune health.
