How Inescapable Toxins Can Affect Thyroid Health with Dr. Wendy Myers

“Most chronic health conditions will have a heavy metal or a chemical as an underlying root cause.” – Dr. Wendy Myers

Environmental toxins, especially heavy metals, are a pervasive issue affecting everyone. These toxins interfere with critical bodily functions, from enzyme activity to amino acid absorption and the energy production necessary for iodine uptake. The result? A domino effect that can lead to significant disruptions in thyroid hormone production and conversion.

Considering the many negative consequences of this toxic burden and the fact that none of us can avoid them altogether, it’s crucial to incorporate detox strategies to help our bodies clear as much of the toxic load as possible.

Today, I’m joined by Dr. Wendy Myers, a Naturopathic doctor and founder of Myersdetox.com, to explore the impact of environmental toxins, especially heavy metals like mercury, on thyroid health. Dr, Wendy is an anti-aging, heavy metal detox, and bioenergetics expert and the #1 bestselling author of Limitless Energy: How to Detox Toxic Metals to End Exhaustion and Chronic Fatigue. Wendy hosts a top 100-rated podcast, the Myers Detox Podcast, about protecting your health with detoxification.

In this conversation, Dr. Wendy and I discuss her journey with thyroid issues and how detoxification strategies – like ionic foot baths and infrared saunas – can aid in removing toxins, the importance of mineral balance, how your diet can support detoxification, and more. Enjoy the episode!
