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. Not only does this lead someone down the wrong path, but it also often leaves them with unresolved symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, and anxiety. 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.

Did you know that there are over 100 healthy foods rich in prebiotics? Prebiotics help feed the good bacteria in our gut and have been shown to reduce inflammation, repair leaky gut syndrome, bolster short-chain fatty acid production, improve constipation and mood, prevent migraines, and so much more. While I advise to eat the widest array possible from the food list we provide, I also exercise caution as consuming too many prebiotic-rich foods (especially with a sensitive gut) may increase symptoms of gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Watch the video to learn more about prebiotic foods and if they can help get your gut microbiome in healthy shape.

Struggling with brain fog (brain inflammation) or chronic fatigue (which tends to go hand-in-hand with brain fog)? One of the often missed causes is gut health, and the overlooked brain gut connection. When struggling with brain fog symptoms like fatigue, trouble focusing, forgetfulness, and haziness in your thought processes, it's likely stemming from problems in your gut and related to the blood brain barrier. What does gut health have to do with brain fog and fatigue? Inflammation in the gut is just the starting point as to what could be going on. Watch this video to learn how to get rid of brain fog (hint: probiotics are a great starting point!) and function better in your life!
