Many thousands have found the information to begin improving their thyroid condition at this workshop, which has been presented over 400 times in the past 10 years.
- This is the information you most need to know to minimize the effects of a thyroid problem and prevent a worsening condition.
- You will never think the same about how your body functions, and you will finally truly understand your thyroid, your hormones, how they really work in your body… and what goes wrong.
- You will learn about “endocrine disruptors”– common chemicals you are exposed to daily that act as “counterfeit hormones” and can cause havoc in your body. Learn how to avoid these substances… and how to possibly reduce or eliminate the effect they may be having on your thyroid and overall health.
- Many attendees return to this workshop a second time and bring their friends and family.
Get these common thyroid questions answered:
- How you can have a hypothyroid condition with normal lab tests (very common).
- Why your doctor may only test TSH and ignore the other 5 major lab tests for thyroid.
- Why your thyroid symptoms continue and worsen even though you are taking a thyroid drug.
- Why you can’t stop gaining weight and what to do about this.
All of this information is presented in a fascinating way that will give you useable facts, not confusion.

NEXT WORKSHOP: WEDNESDAY, February 25th at 7:00 PM
“Common Chemicals” that can affect your thyroid (and other hormone glands and systems):
If you have (or suspect that you have) hormone problems such as thyroid, adrenals or sex hormones, it’s very possible that your problems originated in environmental toxicity exposure.
The “How to Heal Your Thyroid Naturally” workshop will inform you about these toxins, where they are, how to avoid them in the future and (perhaps most importantly) how to recover from the damage caused by them. The type of toxins that may cause the most damage to the thyroid are Endocrine Disruptors.
“Endocrine Disruptors” are common chemicals you are exposed to daily that act as “counterfeit hormones” and can cause havoc in your body. You are exposed through contact with plasticizers (chemicals that make plastics soft), insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, many drugs and other common chemicals. You eat endocrine disruptors in many meats and in dairy where the animals are given hormones.
Here is a description of endocrine disruptors from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (a part of the National Institutes of Health):
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. A wide range of substances, both natural and man-made, are thought to cause endocrine disruption, including pharmaceuticals, dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, DDT and other pesticides, and plasticizers such as bisphenol A. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides.
From the United Nations Environment Programme study, “Overview of thyroid-related disorders and diseases in humans and wildlife and evidence for endocrine disruption”:
Both genetic and environmental factors play a role in thyroid health. However, observations in laboratory animals and wildlife suggest that exposure to endocrine disruptors, particularly during fetal life, could also play a role.
From “Environmental Thyroid Disruptors and Human Endocrine Health” (INTECH, Francesco Massart, St. Chiara University Hospital of Pisa and Pietro Ferrara, Sacro Cuore Catholic University of Rome, Italy
In the last 30 years, there is increasing concern about chemical pollutants that have the ability to act as hormone mimics. Because of structural similarity with endogenous hormones, their ability to interact with hormone transport proteins, or their ability to disrupt hormone metabolism, these environmental chemicals have the potential mimic, or in some cases block, the effects of endogenous hormones (Safe, 2000). In either case, these chemicals serve to disrupt the normal actions of endogenous hormones and thus have become known as “endocrine disruptors”. An endocrine disruptor is defined as “an exogenous agent which interferes with the synthesis, secretion, transport, binding, action or elimination of natural hormones in the body which are responsible for maintenance of homeostasis, reproduction, development or behavior” (Massart et al., 2006a). This wide definition includes all substances that can affect endocrine function via interference with estrogen, androgen or thyroid hormone (TH) signaling pathways.
