    What your Gut Bacteria has to do with your Thyroid, and how to rebuild, repair, and restore your energy by feeding your microbiome

    Hippocrates said: “All disease begins in the gut.” 2,500 years later we’re just beginning to understand how right he was. And hypothyroidism is no exception. Poor gut health can suppress thyroid function and trigger Hashimoto’s disease, and low thyroid function can lead to an inflamed and leaky gut.

Fixing the gut is often the first – and most important step.
