Living in Arizona, the home of the Valley of the Sun, Dr. Guillermo Ruiz is breaking new barriers through the world of Naturopathic Medicine. With a specific specialty in thyroid disease, Dr. Ruiz explains why it may be harder for most people with thyroid issues to see progression in their journeys to health. Even with Guillermo’s extensive background knowledge and expertise, he stays true to his motto of self-training when helping others. “I don’t want to tell you what to do. I want to work with you and help you get to where you need to be.” In this episode of Meathead Hippie, an assortment of topics are covered, ranging from anemia, the benefits of iron and favorite herbs -- all the way to a little tangent of mutual love for Harry Potter. With so much helpful advice to offer, he finishes the episode with an insightful analogy on balancing life like it has its own personal Venn diagram. “The inside of the Venn diagram is true health. You need to take into consideration all of the circles in order for you to be the best version you can be.” It is no secret that Dr. Guillermo Ruiz brings a new source of light in Naturopathic Medicine to the home of the Valley of the Sun. http://www.3030strong.com/ Our previous podcast: http://www.3030strong.com/3030-health-podcast/emfit Content summary: 6:23 A Thyroid Surprise The uphill battle with hypothyroidism and why it is so hard to see results when you feel like you are doing everything right 10:12 Guillermo’s Motto “I don’t want to tell you what to do.
