Feeling energetic and hot! With Thyroid Pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz #21
Did you know that taking a simple sauna twice a week could spark a complete change in your energy levels? (Hence the title of this blog.) This is just one of the interesting and unusual ideas in today's Zestology Podcast.
Are you interested in making some small changes for big results? Listen/read on. My guest is someone with a wide amount of expertise in this area. Dr Izabella Wentz has written a hugely popular and well received book on Hashimoto's. (Never heard of Hashimoto's? It turns out that Hashimoto's is really much more common than anyone thought so we look at that at the start of the show).
We also dive straight into general health improvements and yes, sauna therapy. We go into a bit of depth, including the uh, sauna incident that left Dr. Wentz rather surprised and shocked.
And surprise surprise, it’s a regular theme, we look at nutrition and health and the role that food has to play in your overall wellbeing and energy levels.
It’s one of those shows where we go deep, especially at the start, and I love that. There's some real depth in this podcast. I’m honoured to have a real expert in her field on, so let’s speak to Thyroid Pharmacist, Dr Izabella Wentz.
