Episode - Can a Carnivore Diet Benefit Those with Thyroid Autoimmunity with Dr. Sabrina Solt


Can a Carnivore Diet Benefit Those with Thyroid Autoimmunity with Dr. Sabrina Solt

“Most people don’t eat near enough protein.” – Dr. Sabrina Solt

Although I don’t commonly recommend the carnivore diet to my patients, I’ve heard several success stories regarding autoimmunity. To help us explore this topic, I’m joined by Dr. Sabrina Solt, a naturopathic doctor and follower of the carnivore diet.

With her naturopathic background, it was hard for Dr. Sabrina to accept that plants weren’t the best route for her healing. But after trying the carnivore diet, her chronic health issues finally disappeared, and the results were undeniable.

Dr. Sabrina Solt is a naturopathic doctor located in Scottsdale, AZ. She practices regenerative and anti-aging medicine and uses carnivore and animal-based diets as part of her treatment protocols to heal everything from autoimmune disorders to chronic pain.

In this conversion, Dr. Sabrina and I talk about the fundamentals of the carnivore diet, myths we’ve been told about the necessity of plant-based foods in our diet, why we need to reframe our thoughts on cholesterol and saturated fats, the benefits she’s seen with her patients who have switched to a carnivore diet, and more. As always, after the episode, I share my take on some things we discuss in the interview. Enjoy the episode!
