Often regarded as a disorder affecting only grown adult women, the diagnosis is rarely put up for consideration when it comes to kids. So, what do we look for? What are the classic signs in children? What are the key dietary and lifestyle interventions that can make a difference to these kids?

Today's guest is an expert in Hashimoto's, who lives and breathes it on both a professional and personal level, on a daily basis. Cindy Kennedy is a nutritional medicine practitioner and author of the book; "Help! My Child Has Hashimoto's". Today Cindy shares her journey to discovering this diagnosis with her own children and what strategies she's used to recover their health and wellbeing.
