This week is about the basics of the thyroid and how gut health relates to thyroid health. We’ll also cover some thyroid troubleshooting from a GAPS perspective, along with info on Functional Testing and why you want to do this kind of testing for thyroid issues.
**Important note – It is important to attend to adrenal health (as talked about in Module 1) before attending to thyroid health. Stimulating thyroid health prior to adrenal function can stimulate metabolism, which further taxes weakened adrenals.
