Host Ellen Kamhi, PhD, RN, www.naturalnurse.com, interviews Dr. Holly Lucille, ND, RN.
Dr Holly Lucille is a nationally recognized and licensed naturopathic doctor, an educator and a natural products consultant. She is the author of Creating and Maintaining Balance: A Women’s Guide to Safe, Natural, Hormone Health and serves on the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians Board of Directors. An acclaimed expert in the field of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Holly lectures nationally, and is regularly quoted as an expert in both consumer and peer journals. In 2007 Dr. Holly was listed in Time Magazine’s “Top 100 Most Influential People.” On today’s show Dr Lucille will discuss the complex relationship between endocrine glands, with a focus on the thyroid and adrenals. She compares the endocrine glands to teenagers on smart phones, constantly texting one another with the latest updates. The adrenal and thyroid glands are particularly communicative with one another. Symptoms of dysfunction can be very similar—lethargy, brain fog, weight gain—and problems with one gland can worsen the function of the other. We'll discuss the natural solutions!
