Thyroid-Healthy Bites, episode 58 : The True Cost of Medical Gaslighting with Dr. Teralyn Sell and Jenn Millard-Schmitz

The True Cost of Medical Gaslighting

lifestyle thyroid-healthy bites

Many thyroid patients express feeling unheard, frustrated, and dismissed by the medical system. We're often misdiagnosed, under-medicated, or incorrectly medicated with symptom-masking drugs like anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds while our thyroid imbalances go unaddressed. Additionally, many of those drugs come with serious risks and dependencies that patients aren't made fully aware of until it's too late. In this episode of Thyroid-Healthy Bites, we're tackling a crucial topic: Medical Gaslighting and the devastating impact it can have on the lives of thyroid patients. 

In this important and deeply personal conversation, I'm joined by Dr. Teralyn Sell, PhD, and licensed professional counselor Jenn Millard-Schmitz. As co-hosts of The Gaslit Truth Podcast, they describe themselves as "two whistle-blowing shrinks" who are passionate about shedding light on medical gaslighting and its ripple effects. Together, we'll explore the impacts of this problematic phenomenon and practical tips for avoiding it. 

Get ready for an unfiltered conversation that delves deep into the heart of the matter. You'll hear how my guests have witnessed this phenomenon in countless patients and in their own medical treatment and how it ultimately led them to course-correct their careers to try to make a difference. Dr. Teralyn and Jenn aren't holding back, so hit that play button, and let's dig in!
