The ROOT Causes & Symptoms Of Thyroid

The ROOT Causes & Symptoms Of Thyroid Problems & How To TREAT IT | Dr. Mark Hyman

Thyroid disease affects one in five women and one in ten men, yet 50 percent of people with thyroid disease go undiagnosed. The main role of thyroid hormone is to stimulate metabolism, and it affects almost every function of the body. That’s why thyroid imbalance can cause so many different symptoms.

In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss thyroid disease and why an out-of-whack thyroid can stall your metabolism and create many other problems. I also share why using a whole-foods diet, nutritional supplements, and optimizing thyroid hormone replacement is critical for addressing thyroid disorders.
