Part I: Understanding How Your Thyroid Works
Thyroid dysfunctions are not as complicated as you might think. During this 2-hour session, Dr. Ronda Nelson will explore the unique physiology of the thyroid gland and its relationship with the other primary endocrine glands. Discussion will include a review of the four most common thyroid disorders and how they can be supported using a very common-sense approach.
Part II: Bridging the Nutritional Gap
As with any endocrine gland, the thyroid requires certain nutrients to function. Learn which nutrients are the most crucial for optimal thyroid health, which foods should best be avoided (and it’s not cruciferous veggies!) and how you can create a customized diet that is thyroid-healthy!
Part III: Proper Testing, Support and General Recommendations
In her final session, Dr. Nelson discusses which blood tests are most important for a thorough evaluation of the thyroid and what kinds of herbal or nutritional support may be needed to restore optimal function. She will also discuss thyroid-healthy lifestyle habits that can make the difference between having to live with fatigue, anxiety, and weight gain vs. having an energetic, vibrant lifestyle that makes each day better than the one before!
