The True Cost of Medical Gaslighting with Dr. Teralyn Sell and Jenn Millard-Schmitz - Ep. 58

Season #3

In this episode of Thyroid-Healthy Bites, we're tackling a crucial topic: Medical Gaslighting and its impact on thyroid patients. 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 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, these mental health professionals are passionate about shedding light on medical gaslighting and its ripple effects. Together, we'll explore the impacts of this problematic phenomenon and provide 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 grab your headphones, and let's dive in.
