In the story of modern medicine, antibiotics play the role of both hero and villain. They are often prescribed to clear up respiratory, abdominal, vaginal, pelvic, ear, sinus, and throat infections.

To know which these are and why it’s a must to take probiotics with them, watch our video.

Getting the right diagnosis of any condition is critical in order to heal. With thyroid conditions, 30-60% of patients have been incorrectly diagnosed and are instructed to take lifelong medication.

In this video, I break down the five most reliable signs of hypothyroidism, offer what to do about a positive and negative thyroid test, and how to find true relief of symptoms.
