Health & Wellbeing Podcast #1
I’m excited to share with you my first podcast! In this recording I discuss with fellow Naturopath Lisa Costa-Bir thyroid health. Lisa has personally experienced both hyperthyroid and hashimotos, and she has a passion for supporting thyroid health and stress so I’m super grateful she helped out for this podcast.
