If you haven’t heard of the Thyroid Connection Summit, then let me be the first to tell you it is going to be amazing and incredibly informative. The best part is that it is free AND it is online – this means you can join in the virtual classrooms from the comfort of your own home or office.
The thyroid is a vitally important hormonal gland that plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and maturation of the human body. It helps to regulate many body functions by constantly releasing a steady amount of hormones into the bloodstream. Interestingly, according to Dr. Amy Myers M.D. – host of the Summit and incredible physician and friend – 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid dysfunction, and out of 27 million, 60% don’t realize they have thyroid dysfunction.
Many people experience daily symptoms such as
- brain fog,
- weight loss or gain,
- feeling cold,
- feeling tired,
- hair fall,
- mood swings,
- and infertility to name a few.
These symptoms could be pointing to thyroid dysfunction or other autoimmune diseases, and the aim of the summit is to educate people on possible causes, symptoms and how to keep your thyroid (and body) healthy.
What is the Thyroid Connection Summit?
The Thyroid Connection Summit is an online summit hosted by Dr. Amy Myers: a functional medicine doctor and NY Times best-selling author of The Autoimmune Solution: Prevent and Reverse the Full Spectrum of Inflammatory Symptoms and Diseases. One of the reasons this event came about is because of Dr. Amy’s health struggle in which conventional medicine didn’t help or cure her ailment.
A Little Background on Dr. Amy Myers
Dr. Amy Myers grew up in a health-conscious household, and never had any major health issues until her second year of University. When she started having panic attacks, suffered from insomnia, weight loss and tremors, she paid a visit to her doctor and found out she had Graves Disease – an autoimmune problem which causes hyperthyroidism. After struggling to find the best solution both with conventional medicine and Eastern medicine, she eventually and reluctantly had her thyroid ablated.
She learned about functional medicine through Dr. Mark Hyman and took training from Hyman’s Institute of Functional Medicine. What she loves about functional medicine is how it approaches a symptom from a whole-body perspective instead of simply treating the symptom. One of the things she talks about, which I love, is how each person is different and a cookie-cutter fix won’t work for everyone even if they have the same ailment. This is the beauty of functional medicine, and she currently has a functional medicine clinic in Austin, Texas.
Since it would be challenging for everyone to visit her in Austin, she decided to bring the experts to everyone by hosting The Thyroid Connection Summit. This is actually a FREE online event which you can register for HERE. You can join in the talks, listen to interviews with 30 doctors and specialists on the topic of auto-immune diseases and learn more about how to keep your body, immune system, and thyroid balanced.
