Thyroid and Metabolism : Rational Wellness Podcast

I had the honor of being interviewed for the Rational Wellness Video Podcast for a second time.

This interview is basically a detailed crash course on how our thyroid impacts our metabolism.

You’ll learn important details on how thyroid hormone works in different organs and how it has a major impact on our metabolic rate, our weight, our liver function, and cholesterol production.

I can’t tell you the number of patients I see with elevated cholesterol who haven’t had their thyroid investigated properly – and this ends up being the cause.

We even discuss cellular hyperthyroidism which is our body’s way of generating heat in cold exposure!

I always have such a good time speaking with Dr Weitz and find him to be an excellent and knowledgeable interviewer.  In addition to running the Rational Wellness podcast, Dr Weitz owns a sports chiropractic and nutrition clinic in Santa Monica.  If you are interested, you can see the show notes here.

This was a fun interview, but we also covered a lot of misinformation about thyroid prescribing practices that I hope you find interesting.

If you are in the Toronto area and are struggling with your thyroid, our doctors are familiar with the concepts discussed in this video and would be happy to work with you!
