Autoimmune thyroid disease is commonly found in infertility patients and can dramatically interfere with conception, increase the risk of miscarriage in the first trimester, and result in poor fetal development. These risk factors can be significantly reduced through appropriate patient management of both thyroid hormones and the immune system. Leslie Oldershaw, a seasoned practitioner with over 20 years of TCM clinical and teaching experience in women's health and fertility, shares in this introductory course, how TCM and functional medicine can be combined to provide the greatest advantage for the patient and lead to a successful pregnancy outcome. This course focuses on the following topics:

  • What is autoimmune disease?
  • What is autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD)?
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis
  • Grave's disease
  • How does AITD impact fertility
  • Testing via blood panel: thyroid markers and lab ranges
  • How to manage the immune system?
