From Fatigued to Fantastic with Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum

Do you feel tired all the time but still have trouble sleeping? Are your thyroid levels optimized, but the fatigue symptoms won’t disappear?

Many doctors hyper-focus on TSH levels and even go so far as to dismiss patients who are experiencing symptoms while their test results are within the optimal ranges. You need a different approach.

Today’s guest is Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, the author of the well-known book, From Fatigued to Fantastic! Dr. Jacob focuses on treating the different components of fatigue and takes a symptom-first approach. With his S.H.I.N.E. protocol, he takes an organized and holistic approach to addressing the underlying factors.

In this conversation, Dr. Jacob and I talk about how he became an expert in the field, common causes of fatigue outside of thyroid conditions, his S.H.I.N.E.® Protocol, natural solutions for improving energy and sleep, his common sense approach to nutrition, resources you can tap into for fatigue, fibromyalgia, and infertility, and more. Dr. Jacob was one of the more entertaining guests I’ve had, and he shared a wealth of knowledge. Enjoy the episode!
