Episode - Can acupuncture benefit thyroid health?


Can acupuncture benefit thyroid health?

Acupuncture has a lot of wonderful benefits but do these extend to improving thyroid health?

I’m a big advocate of acupuncture. I’ve received it myself and often recommend it for certain conditions. While there hasn’t been a lot of research involving the relationship between acupuncture and thyroid health, there are studies that show a positive relationship.

Today I’m sharing some of the research on the impact of acupuncture on various aspects of thyroid health and the key areas to keep in mind if you’re considering trying acupuncture.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • What acupuncture involves
  • Benefits of acupuncture
  • Research studies around acupuncture and thyroid health
    • Acupuncture and subclinical hypothyroidism
    • Acupuncture and thyroid eye disease
    • Acupuncture and benign thyroid nodules
    • Acupuncture and autoimmunity
  • Why I consider acupuncture as an optional treatment


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
