Episode 429: Fixing Athletes Thyroid To Stay Healthy Inside Out with Dr. Aime Hornaman

Our bodies were not made for walking around, being miserable, tired, depressed, or constipated. This is not a sign you’re getting older. It’s also not something you need to live with. It’s a signal that something is wrong with your body. You can find it through testing, listening to your body, and asking yourself how you feel. Pairing up how you feel with your lab test will help you get the full picture of what is going on and the proper treatment plan. Learning how to be a patient advocate for yourself and work with a specialist will help you find the right answers and get back to optimal health. 

Join the conversation with Dr. Aimee as she shares about thyroid dysfunction and other related hormones dysfunction, causes, and intervention strategies to provide you with tools to help you advocate for your thyroid and hormone health.
