(Subscribe on iTunesSpotify, StitcherSoundCloud or TuneIn) Do you know if you suffer from thyroid imbalance? Our thyroid plays a huge role in our menstrual cycle and fertility health. A shocking 1 in 8 women experience thyroid imbalances… and it’s time more of us become educated on how to tackle it. Who better to talk with me on thyroid imbalances than Lisha Knicely, a functional practitioner with over 9 years of experience specialising in hypothyroid conditions and the creator of the Thyroid Recovery Program. Lisha understands the impact that living with hyperthyroid conditions can have on a woman’s life, which is why her thyroid healing approach is focused on making manageable lifestyle and nutritional changes. In our conversation, Lisha talks about how she became involved in thyroid health work, her personal struggles with hypothyroidism and Hashimotos, the basic information on the thyroid and why we need it to be healthy, ways that our environment contributes to autoimmune imbalances, environment changes we can all make to improve our autoimmune health, recommendations for long term gut health, how thyroid health impacts women’s fertility and their health postpartum, and so much more.
