New YouTube Video: My Health Journey with Dr. Redd

Health, YouTube

After I was diagnosed with Graves Disease, I began sharing my journey to regain my health on social media. Through a strict diet and regimine from my doctor, I have been able to put my Graves into remission. Today I'm sharing a video plus other resources on my health journey.

Please note: I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice. I am sharing my experience. While Dr. Redd is a medical professional, he is not your doctor. Please consult your own primary physician before starting any new health or diet protocols.

First, check out the YouTube video we just filmed together. Trust me, Dr. Redd can explain the medical/science-y stuff a whole lot better than I can!

We'll be adding Part 2 of this video next week, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I've rounded up some of my health resources for you.
