Episode 10: Natalie Douglas - Dietician specialising in Thyroid Health
This podcast is a very important episode about an issue that is such a common health problem, but due to its non-specific nature, it often falls under the radar. We are talking about thyroid health. The thyroid gland is situated at the front of the throat, and its role is to secrete hormones to regulate many metabolic processes, including growth and energy expenditure. If the thyroid gland is overactive or sluggish, then metabolism will be affected as well as so many other aspects of our health. Around about half a million Australian’s are affected and there are so many more that have thyroid issues that don’t even know it. So for this episode, I thought I would get my friend Natalie Douglas on the show to discuss the things that are putting our thyroid under stress and how to keep our thyroid healthy throughout our life. Nat is a qualified dietician and in recent years has focused on using the power of real food, smart supplementation, quality sleep, stress management, appropriate movement, and spiritual wellbeing to transform people’s thyroid health. I found this chat very informative and practical – I sure hope you guys do to.
