Overcoming Fatigue with Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum

lifestyle thyroid basics thyroid-healthy bites

Fatigue afflicts over 30% of Americans and is one of the most pervasive and debilitating symptoms associated with hypothyroidism. It’s been said that there's no tired like thyroid tired, and as Thyroid Thrivers, many of us are all too familiar with what that means. Fatigue robs us of our enjoyment and zest for life. It can make every day feel like an uphill slog. It hobbles our professional and personal dreams...and according to my special guest, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, it's also treatable and reversible. 

Dr. Teitelbaum is one of the leading authorities on fatigue, and the symptoms that accompany it, such as pain and brain fog. He has authored numerous studies on successful treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, which often go hand in hand. We talk about both of these illnesses and the links between them in this episode of the Thryoid-Healthy Bites Podcast.

His best-selling book, "From Fatigued to Fantastic," now in its 4th edition, outlines his S.H.I.N.E. protocol for optimizing energy and recovering from pain, insomnia, brain fog, infections, and more.  

In this highly informative and entertaining interview, Dr. Teitelbaum sheds light on why fatigue is such a common issue for Thyroid Thrivers and provides a wealth of practical advice and tips on how to overcome fatigue. 


We'll Discuss: 

  • The difference between tiredness and fatigue
  • Practical lifestyle tips for overcoming fatigue
  • Societal root causes for the fatigue epidemic
  • The link between fatigue and pain
  • Supportive supplements for those struggling with fatigue
  • Dr. Teitelbaum's S.H.I.N.E. Protocol


If you find yourself grappling with low energy, persistent tiredness, or unrelenting fatigue, don't miss this episode. It's packed with insights to help you regain your vitality and zest for life!

Need Help Reclaiming Your Energy? 

The principles we discussed in this podcast are central to what I call "thyroid-healthy living." They're the same principles and practices that helped me reclaim my life from debilitating fatigue. It took me years to discover that there was more to managing hypothyroidism than just one test, and just one pill. It's been my mission to make sure it doesn't have to be this way for YOU. 

Factors like nutrition, sleep, and stress management play a huge role. It's critical to find supportive resources to help you not only learn about but also implement these changes in real life, where the results happen...because knowing what we need to do to thrive and actually doing it are two different things. So, if you've had trouble turning what you've learned on this podcast into a more energized and healthier YOU, there's a good chance you're missing an essential piece of your healing puzzle: SUPPORT.

That's why I created The Thrivers Club, a group health coaching community where together we can learn, grow, and transform! Members get access to exclusive expert content, members-only workshops, monthly wellness challenges, a supportive community of fellow Thyroid Thrivers, a private recipe library, and so much more!

Here's what members are saying about how The Thrivers Club has helped them...



Imagine what it would be like to finally have the support you need. What kind of health dreams could you make come true? Let's find out. No matter where you are on your journey - whether newly diagnosed or decades down the path - The Thrivers' Club is here to help you thrive! 

Happy thriving, and enjoy the episode!
