Key Ways To Treat Hypothyroidism Naturally

Your thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck below your adams apple, is your chief gland of energy and metabolism and is like a master lever that fires up the genes that keep cells doing their jobs.

You can think of the thyroid as a fundamental mechanism in a complex machine, as every cell in your body has thyroid hormone receptors. Hypothyroidism is a silent epidemic as well.

People can suffer for years with symptoms that our conventional medical system frequently doesnt know how to treat because complaints seem scattered and often there is no pill for the ill. Here are ways to treat hypothyroidism naturally.

  1. UP THE PROTEIN - Protein transports thyroid hormone to all your tissues and enjoying it at each meal can help normalize thyroid function. Proteins include nuts and nut butters, eggs, legumes and animal products.

  2. FAT - Fat is your friend and cholesterol is the precursor to hormonal pathway. If you are getting insufficient fat and cholesterol, you could be exacerbating hormonal imbalance, which includes thyroid hormones. Natural, healthful fats include olive oil, avocados, flax seeds, fish, nuts, yogurt, cottage cheese, yes full fat not skim and coconut milk products.

  3. NUTRIENT UP - Make sure to have plenty of vitamin D, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, selenium, zinc, copper, vitamin A and vitamin B and iodine. These are all the building blocks for hormones that control immune function and cell growth, are critical to thyroid function and improve the ability to respond to thyroid hormones.

  4. GO 100% GLUTEN FREE - The molecular composition of thyroid tissue is almost identical to that of gluten. Eating gluten can increase auto immune attack on your thyroid.

  5. GO FOR THE GLUTATHIONE - Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the immune system and is one of the pillars of fighting hashimotos. It can boost your bodies ability to modulate and regulate the immune system, dampen auto immune flare ups and protect and heal thyroid tissue. Few foods contain glutathione, there are foods that help produce glutathione as asparagus, broccoli, peaches, avocado, spinach, garlic, squash, grape fruit and raw eggs.
