The Nourished Nervous System Podcast

Episode  46- A Functional Medicine Approach to Thyroid Health with Carrie Levine          

 Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

This conversation is about so much more than just thyroid health,  but that is at it's core.

In this episode,  Carrie Levine, nurse midwife turned functional medicine practitioner, shares her transformative journey towards founding Whole Woman Health in Midcoast, Maine.  Carrie is also the author of whole woman health: a guide to creating wellness for any age and stage.

She opens up about the challenges of motherhood, personal burnout, and the drive that led her to write a book aimed at demystifying functional medicine for the wider public, especially those unable to afford or access this holistic approach. 

Carrie shares about the interconnection of the adrenals, ovaries and thyroid and some pearls of wisdom on how to keep these systems in balance.

Offering a glimpse into her personal self-care rituals, from nature walks with her dog to the solace found in yoga and tea, Levine underscores the interconnectedness of our well-being with the world around us. 

Her story is a potent reminder of the power of resilience, the importance of listening to our bodies, and the need to foster accessible healthcare pathways that honor our intrinsic link to nature.
