Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well. 

Today I am chatting with repeat guest, Dr. Alan Christianson, all about the thyroid! We talk a lot about lab testing but we also discuss all of the misconceptions about iodine – especially iodine in our food. Dr. Christianson shares various nutrients that help with thyroid function and how you can change your diet in order to heal your thyroid. 

If you experience symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, irregular periods, hair loss, constipation, you may be dealing with a thyroid problem.  

If your doctor has ever told you that you’ll never get off thyroid medication, this is a must listen for you!  Your thyroid can heal!

If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know are navigating through thyroid issues, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
