Questions we answer in this episode:
04:56 Why is iodine a necessary supplement in today’s world?
09:42 Who tests iodine sufficiency?
10:05 Why is it such a controversial supplement? Really, even among functional doctors, this one got resistance from my own functional doc.
The elephant in the room is, just when you might be open to exploring a new path to health, your doctor may throw up just one little additional source of resistance - a tone of voice, a look, or a flat out “That’s really is voodoo medicine” - literally heard by a good friend of mine yesterday when he asked his doctor about testosterone options and opened up with the the “optimal” vs “normal” level.
13:15 What will make TSH go high taking iodine?
17:56 What is causing a rise in hypothyroidism?
What dietary and other supplement tools can help thyroid health?
33:00 What's the future of medicine?
