137: Dr. Becky Campbell on Optimizing Thyroid Health

October 21, 2018

Dr. Becky Campbell is a functional medicine doctor who specializes in thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, and histamine intolerance, and she is the author of  The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan. (Download her Ultimate Thyroid Guide here!)

In this episode, Dr. Campbell shares how her own personal health journey struggling with thyroid issues, gut issues, heavy metals, and more brought her to functional medicine. She discusses the real causes of thyroid imbalances, why it’s more commonly found in women than men, and the different types of thyroid disease someone could have. She explains why it can be hard to diagnose Hashimoto’s, the different nutrient deficiencies associated with thyroid issues, and the relationship between Epstein-Barr virus and thyroid conditions. We also get into the relationship between gut health and the thyroid, as well as the adrenals and the thyroid. Dr. Campbell gives nutrition and exercise recommendations for improving thyroid health, as well as lifestyle factors to address, like personal care products and stress management.
