Today I am excited to share a super helpful resource with you.
If you have read a few of my posts over the years you know that about 2 years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder that had me on medication to keep my hyperthyroidism under control.
As with any prescription medication it came with pages and pages of information. There were the side effects, instructions on timing, take it with food or without, warnings about the interaction of citrus, etc. Perhaps the weirdest thing was that I should not eat anything with large amount of iron within 3 hours of taking the medicine… who has ever heard of that before??

Keep it healthy & fierce!
