Episode - Common Thyroid Healing Oversights with Bronte May


Common Thyroid Healing Oversights with Bronte May

“Health is accumulative. While you might reduce your symptoms by changing your diet, by addressing your whole body, you’ll optimize your health.” – Bronte May

Thyroid imbalances are typically caused by a combination of different components over time. As a result, reversing them means going deeper into gut health, diet, environmental toxins, stress, mindset, and more. The good news is you don’t have to tackle everything at once – it’s too overwhelming. Taking it step by step and working with a guide who understands your needs can make all the difference.

Today, I’m joined by naturopath Bronte May to discuss common oversights in thyroid healing. Bronte emphasizes the importance of addressing physical changes first, then incorporating emotional healing and the individualized approach to gut testing based on symptoms.

In this conversation, Bronte and I talk about how she overcame thyroid autoimmunity, the complexities of thyroid healing, the need for a holistic approach, the importance of self-advocacy, the controversial role of iodine, and more. Enjoy the episode!
