President of the Healthy Lifestyle Academy and founder of the Smart Group Inc., Mr. Author discusses the importance of maintaining a healthy thyroid and why this new podcast series is so beneficial: "There are millions of people in the United States that have a dysfunction thyroid. Unfortunately, many people are unaware that they have a problem because it's not widely spoken about or tested for. This can cause so many other health problems. The great news is that it's actually very easy to support good thyroid health. Through our series of podcasts we walk people through the various lifestyle changes they can make to ensure good thyroid health. This can drastically improve overall health and vitality for many people."
The thyroid gland is a key part of the body's endocrine system. It is responsible for the release of many different hormones that are needed to maintain healthy body function, including proper metabolism. When the thyroid is dysfunctional, there can be serious consequences. Some of the symptoms of a dysfunctional thyroid include muscle and joint pain, hair loss, irritable bowel, menstruation problems, depression, unexplained weight gain or weight loss, fatigue, and problems sleeping; among other complaints.
The latest podcast from the Healthy Lifestyle Academy is titled "Healthy Thyroid Routine Episode 3 – Right Herbs for Thyroid". Focusing on different botanical plants, this podcast highlights the benefits of alternative therapies for helping to support a healthy thyroid. Some of the plants discussed are bladderwrack, ashwagandha, licorice root, coleus forskohlii, and schisandra. Also covered are herbs that can help with weight loss, such as cayenne pepper, ginseng, cinnamon, ginger, and cambogia.
This latest podcast is available to listen to via ITunes, Stitcher, and blubrry, as well as on the Healthy Lifestyle Academy website. People also have the option of subscribing to other resources on the website to learn more about how to make lifestyle changes that will benefit health long-term.
