Thyroid Talk with Dr. Angela Mazza

“Optimize what you can control, and don’t worry about the rest.”

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about thyroid conditions and different treatment options. From the basics of how thyroid hormone is produced to the more advanced insights about the thyroid-gut connection, it’s crucial to ensure that your source of information is reliable, experienced, and evidence-backed.

Today’s guest, Dr. Angela Mazza, recognized this problem and decided to create a resource for people at different stages of their thyroid healing journey through her new book, Thyroid Talk. Dr. Angela is the founder of the Metabolic Center for Wellness in Oviedo, FL, where she spends most of her time caring for persons with autoimmune thyroid disease, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer. Metabolic Center for Wellness is the only center in Central Florida providing the thyroid-saving procedure, RFA, for thyroid nodules. Highly regarded for her individualized approach to patient care, Dr. Angela empowers each person to achieve their unique goals by providing education, lifestyle management, and support.

In this conversation, Dr. Angela and I talk about her book, Thyroid Talk: An Integrative Guide to Optimal Thyroid Health, what to include in comprehensive thyroid testing, the effects of thyroid disruptors like cadmium and fluoride, and the impact of Epstein-Barr virus on thyroid health, the importance of patient empowerment, how environmental factors affect thyroid health, and more.
