When diagnosed with a thyroid issue, it can take a while to narrow down the true root cause.
Dr. Donna Mazzola was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune disorder. She wanted to get to the root of how to treat her diagnosis, as well as find out what lead to this autoimmune disorder in the first place. She quickly realized that while medicine does have a place in healing, it’s a balance between nutrition and medicine that can make a true impact on disease.
With her Doctorate in Pharmacy and a Masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, she started Dr. Autoimmune Girl LLC to share reputable scientific information in a simple format. The mission is to identify the root causes of disease through health and wellness and to create a balance between nutrition and medicine.
Dr. Mazzola shares all about nutrients that play into the development as well as the pervasiveness of Hashimoto’s, including discussing the role magnesium, selenium, zinc and Vitamin D play as well.
