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.

RitamarieJoin Dr. Ritamarie as she discusses the influence of thyroid hormones on the gut. Low thyroid hormones make it difficult to heal the gut, and an inflamed and leaky gut contributes to just about every disease there is, including hypothyroidism. Fixing the gut is often the first – and most important step.

Her training and certifications in chiropractic, acupuncture, herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, and HeartMath, combined with her passion for creating delicious meals that heal the body. allow her to have a truly integrative and holistic approach that gets to the root cause rather than band-aiding health issues with symptom-suppressing strategies.

    Maybe but not likely. You might need more prtoein. If you are on a vegetarian diet then that is probably the reason. I lost a beautiful head of hair by becoming vegetarian. Now it is taking me years to get my hair back and a lot of money on doctor visits.Stress can lead to hair loss. I lost tons of hair when I was eating too much tofu and soy products because it blocked my thyroid medication.My guess would be stress, even though you say no, you could be internalizing your stress. Try yoga and take prenatal vitamins. I have some friends who swear by them for healthier hair and nails.Yes, Rogaine will help but it is expensive and if you stop using it; all the hair you have grown will fall out.
