Today we are talking to Dr. Denis Wilson, an integrative practitioner practicing in Florida, as well as an entrepreneur, with a passion for understanding the tempo and the temperature of life. Dr. Wilson doesn’t just have a passing interest in thyroid health, he has a thyroid syndrome named after him. He is kind, witty and knowledgeable about a topic that affects so many of us — adrenal and thyroid health. Dr. Wilson explains that the thyroid gland sets the pace of life. You won’t want to miss this episode.
