Save My Thyroid

Save My Thyroid

If you have hyperthyroidism (Graves' disease, toxic multinodular goiter, etc.) or Hashimoto's thyroiditis and are looking to do everything to save your thyroid gland, then the Save My Thyroid podcast is for you! Dr. Eric Osansky DC, IFMCP is the host, as he personally was diagnosed with Graves' disease in 2008 and was able to get into remission taking a natural approach. He created this podcast to help others with hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's save their thyroid and regain their health. If you have hyperthyroidism then pretty much all of the episodes will benefit you, and if you have Hashimoto's you'll benefit from most of the guest expert episodes, as well as some of the "solo" episodes. The reason there is more of a focus on hyperthyroidism is because all of the other thyroid-related podcasts focus mostly on hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's, and since Dr. Eric personally dealt with Graves' disease he wanted this podcast to focus more on hyperthyroidism, although it will still offer plenty of value to those with hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's. Dr. Eric Osansky lives in Matthews NC with his wife, 2 daughters, 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 guinea pigs! He has been a practitioner for 20+ years, and has focused on helping people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions since 2009.

Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication that was first approved to help heroin and opium addicts by blocking opioid receptors.

Later, researchers found that lower doses of naltrexone could modulate the immune system and benefit many people with different types of autoimmune and other chronic conditions.

With its immune system modulation properties, low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has the potential to benefit those with...

“Nutrition and health in general are only successful when they’re sustainable.” - Megan Lyons

When it comes to nutrition and thyroid health, it’s essential to build a strong foundation that nourishes the body. That means including the various antioxidants, polyphenols, and other good chemicals from plants alongside high-quality, healthy fats essential for hormone production.

Beyond the basics, your mindset is a po...

Many people are familiar with the benefits of melatonin when it comes to sleep. However, research shows that the hormone may have much more to offer.

While its primary function is to help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm, research has shown other benefits, such as strengthening the immune system, improving bone density, potentially helping to prevent the development of certain types of cancers, and benefiting those wit...

Fertility issues are on the rise. The latest numbers are showing 1 in 5 to 6 women between 18 and 35 struggling with fertility and sperm health on a steady decline. Several factors are driving this change, from increased exposure to environmental toxins to chronic stress levels that are at an all-time high. When our bodies are under stress, they shift into survival mode and that’s a tough place to conceive from.

For those ...

Adequate protein intake is a key nutritional factor in preventing loss of muscle mass and strength, frailty, and associated comorbidities in later life. In addition, research shows that a deficiency of dietary protein can impair immune function and increase susceptibility to infectious diseases.

Everybody’s normal is different, and just because something is common doesn’t mean it’s normal.

As health practitioners, people often ask us whether what they’re experiencing is normal. Without an understanding of your body and what is normal for you, it’s easy to be misled by all the misinformation out there, especially when it comes to women’s bodies. So, where do you go to find the tools to empower yourself?

A number of common allergens can cause problems in those with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions.

We hear a lot about the potentially negative effects of gluten and dairy, but another allergen you need to be aware of is corn. Corn proteins have been shown to cause a celiac-like immune response, meaning that they can produce a similar response to gluten.

Today, I’m discussing the relationship between corn co...

There are many different EMFs, from visible light to the microwave radiation emitted by your cell phone. While many of our natural exposures, like sunlight, tend to be compatible with—and often good for—our biology, we’ve created many new EMF sources in the form of cell phones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and smart meters whose effects are unknown. The problem potentially arises if these different sources interact with our bodies, creating e...

There’s no single diet that everyone with hyperthyroidism should follow. Diet selection is a highly personal choice that must consider individual health conditions, lifestyle, and preferences.

In my new book, The Hyperthyroid Healing Diet (, I explore three different diets in detail, explaining what each involves and how you can start implementing the right one for you. Today, I’m sharing th...

“Health is accumulative. While you might reduce your symptoms by changing your diet, by addressing your whole body, you’ll optimize your health.” - Bronte May

Thyroid imbalances are typically caused by a combination of different components over time. As a result, reversing them means going deeper into gut health, diet, environmental toxins, stress, mindset, and more. The good news is you don’t have to tackle everything at ...

Comprehensive thyroid testing, which goes beyond the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels, is crucial to your thyroid healing journey. Understanding what’s happening with other markers like T3 and T4 is very important, not to mention the thyroid antibodies.

When doing a thyroid panel, you’re given the option for free and total hormone levels. Most thyroid hormone in the body is bound to a protein, leaving only a small ...

Dr. Jill Carnahan’s story is nothing short of inspiring. From early exposures to toxins from pesticides to extended antibiotic use and a poorly planned vegetarian diet, Dr. Jill found herself struggling with her health in her 20s. At 25, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and then later with Crohn’s disease.

Despite having all three components of the triad of autoimmunity from a young age - genetic predisposition, enviro...

Black cumin, also known as Nigella sativa or black seed, is a medicinal plant shown to be beneficial for those with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Unlike some other treatment options, black cumin doesn’t seem to affect thyroid hormone directly; instead, the benefits are derived from its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Today, I’m sharing what the research shows about the benefits of black cumin, as well a...

“Optimize what you can control, and don’t worry about the rest.”

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about thyroid conditions and different treatment options. From the basics of how thyroid hormone is produced to the more advanced insights about the thyroid-gut connection, it’s crucial to ensure that your source of information is reliable, experienced, and evidence-backed.

Radioactive iodine and radiofrequency ablation are two thyroid treatment options that are sometimes confused but are actually quite different. Where radioactive iodine involves the destruction of the cells of the thyroid gland, radiofrequency ablation involves shrinking thyroid nodules and, in some cases, can save the thyroid.

The parathyroid glands may be small, but their impact on our health is monumental. These four tiny glands regulate blood calcium levels via parathyroid hormone (PTH), vital for the optimal functioning of our brain, muscles, nerves, and many bodily processes.

Primary hyperparathyroidism is more common than most people realize and is often misdiagnosed. This occurs when the parathyroid glands secrete too much PTH, causing e...

Our skin is a window into our internal health.

More than just a superficial concern, recent research has shown that eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is better classified as an autoimmune condition rather than an allergic reaction. The three pillars that are thought to contribute to its pathogenesis are skin barrier damage, immune response disorders, and skin microbiome imbalances. More than genetics alone, environm...
