Guest: Jen Wittman
Jen Wittman — author of Healing Hashimoto’s Naturally — visits the podcast to discuss how she used “radical TLC” to LOVE her thyroid and her body back to health. Find out how you can get the support you need, make self-care a daily practice, and get your crazy schedule under control so you make more time for you and the healing process.
