How the Thyroid Actually Works and What it Does 

Andrea Beaman Tells Us How We Can Help Our Thyroid Help Us Lose Weight


Andrea Beaman Notable Quotes

“I think we go on these kicks as human beings. We go to this diet and that diet, and all of them work in the beginning because of one common factor: we take out the junk food.”
Andrea Beaman

“I want everybody to be conscious of how the whole body is connected. So when you’re healing your thyroid to lose weight, don’t just look at the thyroid. Look at what you need to do to your system to get it functioning well so that the thyroid gets the energy and support it needs to keep your metabolism moving.”
Andrea Beaman
