There’s an interesting overlap to MTHFR, Methylation, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. One that should not be overlooked or ignored.
Methylation and Hashimoto’s are two big topics on their own, but I wanted to know if some sort of connection exists. If so, then hypothyroid suffers should know because methylation challenges should really be addressed as part of the underlying reasons for feeling sick.
But the two worlds never collided until now. Because each issue on their own can make you feel terrible, I knew that you’d want to know if there was overlap.
And yes, there certainly is!
Because thyroid issues can take years to develop, you may not know exactly what’s going on with your thyroid right now. And it can be a real challenge to get some doctors to run all the correct testing (ahem… a full thyroid panel).
It’s my hope that this interview will help you better grasp some serious problems with conventional treatment methods for Hashimoto’s along with how (and why) to spot methylation challenges. Both need to be addressed in order to support your best health moving forward!

MTHFR, Methylation & Hashimoto’s with Dr. Eric Balcavage
This can be a challenging topic to address in such a short period of time! But somehow, we managed to tackle it in a way that is new and refreshing to listeners.
Dr. Balcavage has a different perspective than many do who focus on thyroid health. His professional experience spans topics like MTHFR, methylation, and Hashimoto’s. And that’s what I asked him to join me.
I’ve known him for several years since he works in the greater Philadelphia area. His work is impressive and he lectures all over the US.
In this episode…
– Understanding methylation from a different perspective (great for the patient)
– Could Melatonin be the wrong choice for poor sleep? (Here’s what to consider instead…)
– Do you really need to get genetic testing done to address methylation issues properly?
– Connections between MTHFR, methylation and Hashimoto’s challenges
– Why TSH and free T4 values look normal, but you still don’t feel better (and why T4 replacement drugs don’t work so well)
– and much more…
