Known as a “master gland,” the thyroid works with other endocrine system glands and hormones to govern our body's growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Thyroid diseases like Hashimoto's or hypothyroidism are increasingly common, and can cause a host of issues, including stunted growth, weight gain, fatigue, or infertility. What factors cause thyroid problems? What role does iodine play in supporting the thyroid? And how can we heal the thyroid naturally?
Today, holistic nutritionist and master herbalist Ronda L. Nelson, PhD, MH offers insights on how the thyroid works, how to heal it using nature as our guide, and why it’s important to look beyond the symptoms when health problems arise. She also tells us how her daughter’s diagnosis with terminal bone cancer led her on a path toward discovering the inextricable link between the food we eat and our health.
