Alysia Raftery is an Australian Naturopath and Myotherapist passionate about women’s hormones and hormonal weight gain. She has a family history of thyroid issues, and after her third child, her thyroid symptoms were crazy – things like brain fog, finding it hard to finish a sentence, and constant bloating. Testing revealed that she had SIBO, which Alysia discovered was caused by cellular hypothyroidism. Since then, Alysia has been on a mission to get the message out that symptoms are not in your head, and there is help for this.
In this episode, we talk about common symptoms of hypothyroidism, why getting a full thyroid panel is essential, what different thyroid markers mean, cellular hypothyroidism, the connection between cellular hypothyroidism and SIBO, how you can start healing your thyroid, and so much more!

I’ve been using period underwear since 2014, long before it was popular, so I know a thing or two about what to look for in a great pair of period undies. I recently started using Knix period underwear, and I’m actually in love. When wearing these undies, you can be fully confident that you won’t have any leaks, even when sitting or lying down for a long time.
Their cotton, leakproof underwear is soft, stretchy, and feels like regular underwear. They come in a range of absorbencies and can absorb up to eight tampons worth of liquid, so they’re great for every day of your period. Not only are they super absorbent, but they also stay dry. Plus, they’re so easy to wash you can just pop them into the washing machine with a mild detergent and tumble dry them on low.
