How Environmental Toxins Can Disrupt Your Thyroid & Adrenal Glands with Dr. Peter Kozlowski, MD

Have you ever felt like something just isn’t quite right but your doctor brushes off or belittles your concerns and says it’s not that bad or just a part of getting older?

You’re not alone. Traditional doctors are not trained in functional medicine which digs deeper and looks for the root cause of your symptoms. 

In this week’s episode of the Reshape Your Health podcast, I interviewed Peter Kozlowski, MD, 2-time author of Unfunc Your Gut and Get the Func Out. He is a family medicine doctor who practices functional medicine for a diverse group of patients from children with autism to adults with dementia. 

Today we focused on the link between environmental toxins and how they can build up overtime to disrupt your thyroid and adrenal glands. If you have Hashimotos, hypothyroid, chronic stress, or just love learning new information about how your body works, you’ll find this episode fascinating.

He also talks about why your mental, spiritual, and emotional health are even MORE important than environmental toxins for your hormone health. Yet more evidence that you can’t master your physical state without mastering your mental and emotional state.
