Foundations of Thyroid Health with Dr. Krista Coombs

Most people with a thyroid or autoimmune thyroid condition will benefit from a closer look at the foundations of thyroid autoimmunity.

With all the information available from Dr. Google, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Without a personalized approach, each recommendation seems to contradict the last one, leaving you afraid.

You don’t need to get bogged down by generalized recommendations, expensive testing, and supplements. Instead, start by focusing on the fundamentals. It’s the best bet for taking care of the low-hanging fruit and seeing improvement in your quality of life.

Today I’m excited to be joined by Dr. Krista Coombs to talk about how a foundational approach leads to better management of complex autoimmune conditions, including Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease. For over two decades and counting, Dr. Krista Coombs has been helping patients learn to manage complex health issues using a foundations approach, integrating Chinese medicine and Functional medicine philosophies. Her expertise in autoimmune condition management using EASY concepts empowers her patients, giving them hope of mastering helping themselves and increasing their Health Span.

In this conversation, Dr. Krista and I discuss her approach as an integrative healthcare practitioner, why you need a personalized approach, how she’s making functional medicine more accessible, Dr. Krista’s EASY pillars for improving your quality of life, and more. Enjoy the episode!
