Ep #10: Q&A: Hormone Tests, Strengthening Metabolism, and Hypothyroidism

To mark the start of a New Year, I am bringing you a very special episode. This episode content is all planned by YOU, the listener. You have all been submitting questions inside our free Facebook community, Thriving Metabolism for Busy Women, and I’m answering them this week on the show. Whatever you’re struggling with, somebody else has likely asked the question, so listen in this week to get some answers.

What is the best test to request from your doctor if you suspect your hormones are off? What are some daily foods and activities that can boost your metabolism? What can you do to boost your metabolism if you have hypothyroidism? These are just some of the pearls of wisdom I’m sharing on the show this week.

Tune in this week to have your questions about hormone tests, your metabolism, and your thyroid answered. I share what to do if you think you need hormone bloodwork, my advice for strengthening your metabolism, and you’ll learn how to manage a low-functioning thyroid.
