Fasting helps to improve mitochondrial function, which is important for people with Hashimoto's because they often have impaired mitochondrial function.

Not sure how? Then, you must tune in to this episode where Cynthia Thurlow shares some tips on how to do intermittent fasting safely and effectively if you have Hashimoto's disease. She also talks about the benefits of fasting for people with Hashimoto's, such as weight loss, increased energy, and some success strategies for women.
