Today marks the beginning of National Autoimmune Diseases Awareness Month. Could there be a more perfect time to release The Thyroid Secret, a phenomenal 9-part documentary series on some of the most misunderstood conditions of all? If you are one of the estimated 30% of people who suffer from diagnosed or undiagnosed thyroid disease, this is a must-see! And when you click on the button below, you can watch the entire series for free, starting at 6pm ET tonight!!!
The thyroid gland produces hormones that control metabolism as well as influence other essential systems in the human body, such as the cardiovascular system, the immune system, and calcium homeostasis. Thyroid hormones increase our basal metabolic rate, control appetite, improve absorption of nutrients from the digestive tract, and control gut motility. They play an essential role in glucose metabolism and also stimulate the breakdown of fats. This is why symptoms of thyroid-related conditions, affecting an estimated 30% of the world population, can rob us of our quality of life. Symptoms of thyroid disease include: abnormal weight gain or resistance to weight loss, fatigue, depression, anxiety, brain fog, constipation, heavy menstrual bleeding, hair loss, cold intolerance, migraines, and a slow heart rate when thyroid function is compromised as in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, but also abnormal weight loss, increased appetite, insomnia, decreased tolerance of heat, tremor, palpitations, trouble concentrating, anxiety and nervousness when the thyroid is overactive as in Grave’s disease. Any of those symptoms sound familiar? If so, I encourage you to tune in tonight to watch The Thyroid Secret because most people who suffer from a thyroid-related health condition don’t know it.
I myself suffer from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the most common autoimmune disease in the world, affecting a conservatively estimated 1 in 125 of us; but it took living with hypothyroidism symptoms for three decades before I received a diagnosis. That was a launching point for me, providing me insight into my ongoing symptoms but also new context with which to reflect back on thirty years of health struggles. This experience fuels my mission as a health educator. I want to increase scientific literacy on public health topics so that others can find hope and healing. I want to help people get the information they need so that they don’t need to struggle for decades before they can find answers like I had to. So when my friend Dr. Izabella Wentz, Pharm. D., approached me last year about being interviewed for a documentary she was making about thyroid disease and treatment, I was excited to share my story and knowledge!
The 9-part documentary series The Thyroid Secret, which you can view for free starting today, is better than I could possibly have imagined. It’s an absolutely amazing resource not just for people with diagnosed thyroid disease but also the millions of people with symptoms like fatigue, depression, weight issues, and brain fog that can be caused by undiagnosed thyroid-related conditions. It’s appropriate timing, too—March is National Autoimmune Diseases Awareness Month. It’s a great time to push thyroid disease and other autoimmune diseases out into the light, and The Thyroid Secret is doing just that!
I think this documentary series is so incredible because it addresses one of the biggest struggles we face in dealing with thyroid-related diseases: simply spreading information. Izabella dives deep in this series, interviewing over 100 experts including doctors, chiropractors, nutritionists, therapists, patients and more. She’s explored both natural cures and traditional medicine in an effort to give you the best possible information about thyroid disease. Each of the 9 episodes is over 90 minutes long, meaning it’s an incredible amount of content. And, as I already mentioned, you can watch the entire series for free starting tonight!
Just to recap:
- The Thyroid Secret, Part One will be released at 6 p.m. EST tonight!
- You can watch it FREE but only for 24 hours
- Parts Two thru Nine will be viewable on the same schedule over the next 8 days!
