“Really that is how I became a Hashimoto’s expert slash human guinea pig, was just by trying to get my own health back.” (12:30)


“I kind of just decided to take my health into my own hands, and tried different things and eventually some of them worked. So I am happy to share with everybody what the ones that worked were.” (15:31)


“A lot of people are misguided in the nutrition world, where they think they just need to cut out more foods and then they will be perfectly healthy, and that can get into a situation where we actually lose our intuitive ability to pick the foods that are right for us.” (25:04)


“I address not just what to eat, but also how to incorporate it into your life so that it actually becomes easier to eat this way than not eat this way.” (37:20)


“A big part of my healing was believing that I deserved to be healthy and I deserved to be happy, and really investing in myself. So I hope you believe that you are worth it.” (48:43)
