The natural medicine community has long benefited from the leadership of this week’s guest. Dr. Joseph Pizzorno has been practicing natural medicine for more than 40 years. He is an author, educator, and top-notch provider, and his bread and butter is studying environmental toxins.
In this episode, Dr. Pizzorno and Dr. Smeaton discuss perchlorates and bisphenols, two prevalent environmental toxins that affect thyroid function. They also talk about the sneaky ways these toxins can show up in everyday life.
This is part one of a two-part interview with Dr. Pizzorno. Stay tuned for more from him and Dr. Jaclyn Smeaton next week to hear about other toxins in our environment and how to avoid them.
