In this interview on The Dr. Hedberg Show, I had a great time talking to Shannon Garrett about Hashimoto’s disease.
We started by talking about Shannon’s personal journey with Hashimoto’s disease. And then we got into how stress triggers Hashimoto’s disease as well as emotions and early adverse life events in childhood and how they connect to autoimmune disease as an adult.
Shannon’s book Hashimoto’s: Finding Joy in the Journey.
The many shades and stages of grief and Hashimoto’s disease.
Shannon’s eCourse and the FLT triangle of Hashimoto’s disease.
We talked about LDN (low-dose Naltrexone) and if it is suitable for everyone with Hashimoto’s disease.
Shannon’s nutrition approach to Hashimoto’s disease and why she doesn’t always start with the autoimmune paleo diet.
Additionally, Shannon went through her process of gently helping women change their diets without creating additional stress or anxiety on the patient.
Shannon’s Thyroid Fatigue Special Report which includes the de-stress the holidays eGuide and free 7-Day Fatigue Makeover Challenge.
