It’s time for another great Q&A with Dr. Jockers and the Functional Nutrition team where we get to hear from our extended online community and find out how we can provide insight and value with what people are struggling with.

The awesome naturopath Dr. Yvonne joins Dr. Jockers in studio today to help you best navigate your health journey and guide you to success. Together they are discussing hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, and the best nutrition strategies for that.

There’s also hugely educational information on Graves’ Disease and the dietary changes we can make to ameliorate an autoimmune condition. Getting enough sleep, sun (Vitamin D), and avoiding high-iodine foods are two of the recommendations for dealing with hyperthyroidism.

For the men listening, learn too about BPH (Benign prostatic hyperplasia) and how to practice better prostate health. Plus, some insights on dealing with PTSD with regard to how it can inhibit our body’s ability to heal itself. As usual, it’s all here and it’s all good, relatable information on how we can heal ourselves naturally. Please join us.


“Whenever we’re looking at an autoimmune condition, I always think gut health. We always have to look at leaky gut.

-Dr. David Jockers
