Common Questions About Hypothyroidism

By Joni Labbe, DC, CCN, DCCN

The thyroid gland, which sits over the Adam’s apple, is responsible for energy production in the body and regulating metabolism.

Thyroid function also influences immune health, hormone balance, digestive health, liver detoxification, brain health, and more. With every cell in the body and brain needing thyroid hormone to function properly, it’s no wonder hypothyroidism leaves one feeling and functioning so poorly.
