Ep. 7 // MARNI WASSERMAN: What You Need to Know About Thyroid Health
Marni Wasserman is a culinary nutritionist and health strategist. She is the Author of Fermenting for Dummies and Plant-Based Diet For Dummies and the cohost of The Ultimate Health Podcast. Marni uses passion and experience to educate individuals on how to adopt a real food diet and a balanced lifestyle through simple strategies.
When Marni was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, a thyroid condition that was detrimental to her wellbeing, she became passionate about reclaiming her health and teaching others to do the same.
Marni has such a wealth of knowledge, not only about thyroid health, but also wellness in general! I have so many friends and acquaintances who suffer from some kind of thyroid condition, so this episode is really meaningful to me. I hope that this information gives them a sense of empowerment, and the hope that they can heal themselves and, as Marni says in this interview, become their own doctor.
