Are You Ready to Finally, Actually Feel Better? Let Me Show You How…

My sense of wellbeing, my energy level, everything's more regulated. I just feel like the quality of my life has gone up a lot.


There are a whole lot of opinions out there when it comes to how you should treat hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, “sluggish thyroid”, and/or Hashimoto's.

What I've learned is that even functional medicine doctors get it wrong.

I know how disheartening it is to work with conventional and functional medicine doctors who either don't get it or just can't seem to get it right.

What it all comes down to is something really simple… are you feeling better?

If you're not there yet, it's time for a practical, science-based, step-by-step plan – meticulously developed by a clinician who understands.

I've spent years working directly with patients, obsessing over the latest studies, and even performing my own clinical research, all in order to figure out what actually works for thyroid health. Now, I want to show you.

Dr. Ruscio

I'm Dr. Michael Ruscio, and I've been where you are. When I was in my twenties, I struggled with brain fog, fatigue, insomnia, and other frustrating symptoms that I just couldn't get to the bottom of.

Like so many of my patients today, I wanted to find a natural treatment approach that would fix my problems. But after trying natural therapy after natural therapy, I was still sick – and I felt like I'd wasted a whole lot of money and time!

It turned out that a gut infection was at the root of my symptoms.

At the time, I was surprised, because I didn't really struggle with what I thought of as digestive symptoms. Now, I understand just how connected the gut is to every other part of the body (including the thyroid), and how imbalances in the digestive system can manifest themselves in so many different ways.

This experience changed my life and the course of my career. I've learned that conventional medicine can't provide all the answers. But I've also come to understand how much functional and integrative medicine can be influenced by dogma and a lack of scientific rigor.

Today, I'm dedicated to researching, providing, and teaching a more balanced, cost-effective, science-based approach to functional medicine and to thyroid care.

Many of my patients have spent months or even years going to doctor after doctor, paying for expensive test after expensive test, trying every supplement and diet under the sun, and they're STILL dealing with symptoms.

Sound familiar?

My thyroid program, which is based on a combination of research and the REAL results I obtain with patients, is here to change all of that for you.

I'd like for you to have access to all of the tools we use at my clinic – tools I wish many patients had so as to prevent years of suffering before finding their way to my office.

Here's what you'll get when you sign up…

  • 12 easy to follow modules covering everything from diet and supplements to making sense of research and your lab results
  • Access to specific lab testing you can order yourself
  • A personalized supplement protocol
  • A completely customizable action plan
  • And so many more tools that will empower you to take control of your thyroid health and your life
Learn How to Feel Better Now

I was frustrated from so many years of trying to reach out for help and trying different things that were ongoing, and I just really never seemed to feel better. It just seemed like I was spinning my wheels. I can't even put into words how much I encourage people to come to you, because it's just so life changing. I feel so much better. I was really at a point in my life where I was getting depressed and feeling hopeless. I think my message to people out there is that they do not need to feel that way. There really is help and there really is a game changer, and you just have to do what you guys recommend to us.

And it works.


Is this course right for you?

  • Are you tired of dealing with symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, irritability, cold intolerance, joint pain, difficulty losing weight, and/or digestive symptoms?
  • Do you feel like you've tried every medication, supplement, and diet already, but nothing seems to work?
  • Are your thyroid antibodies high and you're not sure what it means or what to do?
  • Have conventional doctors run out of answers for you?
  • Have integrative or functional medicine doctors tried but failed to meaningfully improve your symptoms?
  • Does all of the conflicting information online send you into a tailspin?
  • Are your test results overwhelming and confusing?
  • Are you wondering if your medication is even doing anything for you?
  • Do you feel like your treatment approach is all over the place, because you're willing to try anything at this point?
  • Have you started to wonder if you're ever going to get back to your life?
Please note: This course focuses on hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, “sluggish thyroid”, and Hashimoto’s. The course does not address hyperthyroidism or Graves’ disease at this time. 

If this sounds like you, I'm here to help. Improving your thyroid health doesn't have to be overwhelming, complicated, or costly.
Let me show you a better way.

I'm dedicated to educating and helping patients with hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's, and related conditions in any way I can. My website is filled with free articles, podcast episodes, videos, and other resources aimed towards demystifying thyroid health, gut health, and more.

But if you're looking for one resource that really allows you to put all of the pieces together and get to the root of your symptoms, this program is the way to go.

It was quite remarkable to me to have that dramatic drop in medication. That tells me that my thyroid is functioning way more optimally than it was. And that's such a remarkable thing. Until I found you, I wasn't able to put together all these different symptoms that I was experiencing. Things were just getting worse. And it's pretty amazing to feel like you can reverse a dysfunction in your body. That's a powerful thing.

I'm Ready To Take Control of My Health

There's a big reason why I care so much about this. Every single week in my clinic, I see patients who have been suffering for way longer than anyone should have to. So often, this is because they've been getting bad advice.

Well-meaning practitioners can still be misinformed. That's why, in addition to seeing patients, I'm committed to reviewing and publishing research and case studies, and to teaching other clinicians how to get better, faster results for their patients.

Believe me when I say that the action plan I'm providing you with is effective, straightforward, practical, and easy to follow. But I'm not just going to tell you what to do.

I want to empower you with the knowledge to really understand why I'm making the recommendations I'm making, and how to interpret the research you hear about, as well as your own test results and health.

In addition to providing clear, customizable guidance on everything from diet and supplements to medication and lab tests, I'm going to break down the research, debunk some of the most pervasive myths when it comes to thyroid treatment, and show you how to address the ONE most surprising but common root cause of thyroid symptoms.

I'm Ready to Get Started

I don't feel deprived, which is really important when you're trying to change your eating habits. I've lost about a pound a week. I'm sleeping through the night most nights. My sense of wellbeing, my energy level, everything's more regulated. I just feel like the quality of my life has gone up a lot.

It's very empowering. As you age, you get used to things changing in your body. One of the things that's really important is to have a sense that you've got some control over what's going on. I realized I had attributed things to aging that weren't aging, they were just not being functionally well. So now that that's been addressed really successfully, I have a really different idea about what's going on with myself… I feel younger, and that's really good.


What is the Thyroid Self-Management Program?

The Thyroid Self-Management Program is a self-help course containing 12 modules, and is designed to reverse the underlying cause of Hashimoto's and thyroid dysfunction.

This course will help you personalize 4 powerful steps to heal your thyroid. These are the same steps that we use to help patients at our clinic, and that we've published in peer-reviewed medical journals.

Whether you've been newly diagnosed with a thyroid condition or have read pretty much every thyroid book and seen half a dozen doctors, this program can help you.

You'll learn…

  • What most thyroid doctors are missing when it comes to improving autoimmunity, thyroid function, and absorption of medication
  • A specific, step-by-step process, that is personalized based on your specific diagnosis, lab work, and symptoms
  • Food freedom! You don't have to be scared of food. I want you to have a diet (and a life) that you enjoy.
  • Empowerment. Understand how to take control of your health and your life, instead of falling victim to fear-based approaches that permeate so much of autoimmunity and thyroid care.

There's always some new thing that I'm like ‘wow, I used to be able to do this when I was 25, and now I'm 42 and I can do it again'. It's been amazing. I feel a lot better knowing that I'm in charge of it now, and I took care of it, and I can keep doing that.


What's Included in the Thyroid Self-Management Program?

The Thyroid Self-Management program is broken down into 12 modules, which you can go through at your own pace.

I'll start by breaking down the most important things you need to know about how thyroid treatment really works, what your tests mean, and the things that SO many doctors continue to get wrong about thyroid health.

Next, I'll provide a thorough overview of dietary options and natural treatments for hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's, and related conditions.

Finally, it's time for your personalized action plan.

By the time you reach the 4-step action plan, you'll already understand so much more about your thyroid health. But this is where we put all of what you've learned into action… so you can start feeling like yourself again.

There's so much misconstrued information or even blatant advertising and lies about diet on the internet. I didn't know where to start. You really put it into perspective for me, so it wasn't so overwhelming and scary… everything just keeps getting better, keeps healing.

  • The Current State of Thyroid Care: What healthcare consumers need to know and what to watch out for

Access the innovative gut-thyroid approach that's being published in medical journals.

In 2022, my research team and I published two studies in peer-reviewed medical journals, documenting our novel and effective approach to thyroid care.


The first is a series of six patient case studies, published in Integrative Medicine, a Clinician's Journal.

We break down the reasons why a gut-focused approach to thyroid care is so effective, and demonstrate how we've used this approach to help real patients- who have often been failed by both conventional and alternative medicine- finally get better.


In our second paper, published in the journal Nutrients, we get even deeper into the evidence supporting the gut-thyroid connection.

In the Thyroid Self-Management Program, I break down this research and what it means in an accessible, approachable way, so that you can benefit from it too.

Has your thyroid journey so far left you with more questions than answers?

In this course, I'll answer some of the most common and most important questions I hear in my practice all the time.

And trust me, we're going deep here. I don't just hear these questions from patients – I hear a lot of them from practitioners, too. That's because the current landscape of thyroid care has made things look complicated… but they don't have to be.

I'll answer questions like…

  • When do I really have to worry about my TSH levels?
  • Is T3 + T4 medication better than T4 alone?
  • Do I need to avoid gluten?
  • What do my antibody levels actually mean?
  • Is a sluggish thyroid really a thing?
  • What about my adrenal function?
  • How do I know if my gut is impacting autoimmunity and symptoms?
  • Do I need to be taking all these supplements for the rest of my life?
  • Should I follow the Autoimmune Paleo Diet for Hashimoto's?
  • And so many more important questions!

Each module includes…

  • A video overview from me, walking you through what to expect and the most important takeaways from the module
  • Clear, research-backed guidance on understanding and improving your thyroid health
  • Unlimited access so that you can learn at your own pace, and come back to any module at any time

I'm a firefighter. I've always been a very high-energy person. I think something changed about three years ago, where I just started to need naps after my shift, and just felt like I was getting more tired for some reason. I was also getting cold… and then also moodier, and a little bit less able to retain information than I used to be.

A lot of it I was able to explain away with ‘I'm getting older' or ‘it's sleep deprivation'. Turns out it was hypothyroidism… Hashimoto's seemed to be the diagnosis at that point.

I loved your approach. Within days, I was like the old me. It's super empowering. It's self-empowering… I'm sleeping better, I feel sharper, I don't need naps. I want to say thank you for the work you're doing.


This whole program costs less than just one visit with a functional medicine doctor, and it provides SO many more tools than you would ever get in one session.

I'm so passionate about this because I've seen firsthand, countless times, how thyroid patients can get better by following a simple, personalized, stepwise protocol.

I want you to have access to the same knowledge and the same steps that we've used successfully in our clinic to help so many people get better.

I want to show you that you can not only improve your symptoms and thyroid health, but that you can do it with fewer interventions and less money.

Because one of the most important things I've learned as a clinician is that more is not always better. More treatments, more doctors, more supplements, more money…

You don't need more treatment, you just need better treatment.

Learn what really works (and what doesn't) for irritability, mood disturbances, weight gain, fatigue, headaches, brain fog, thinning hair, and more.

I have to admit, I feel fantastic. I am sleeping at night, I'm almost off my blood pressure medication, my heartburn has subsided, my energy is wonderful, and the thyroid problem seems to be in check. I'm just very pleased that we could do something with the cause of the problems instead of just putting a bandaid on with medications.

I was a little skeptical, because I thought I had been eating pretty well… within three days, the swelling was gone, amazingly! And I kept waiting for it to come back. It didn't come back. And now it's been about three weeks. It's absolutely amazing. My energy level has greatly improved. And I have probably lost about eight, maybe ten pounds.

Immediately, my energy was back. I started sleeping through the night, which is a really big one because I had really bad insomnia. My sugar cravings started to subside. I was getting a lot of hot flashes, those kind of went away. I generally just became a new person. I just felt alive. And I felt great. And people were telling me that I looked great.

I don't believe that functional medicine is all created equal. It can be expensive, it can be a long-term disappointment, and I feel like in this time I have made leaps and bounds of literally seven years of misery that I was going through. And once I connected with you and this regimen, things turned around and quickly for me – compared to the seven years. It was a short investment and a very wise investment.
