It is possible to heal your thyroid naturally through diet and lifestyle changes. Here are 5 great ways to get you started so you can begin to heal your thyroid naturally:
Soy is damaging to your thyroid gland because it blocks essential nutrients necessary for the thyroid to function properly. Check your labels carefully because soybean oil is used in almost every packaged product.
The gluten in the United States is extremely inflammatory and acidic and is a major cause of thyroid dysfunction. Gluten causes an autoimmune response in many people and is now being examined as the cause of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, a common autoimmune thyroid condition. Gluten also causes immune antibody production in those with elevated TPO levels.
Use Coconut Oil
Coconut oil does not interfere with T4 to T3 conversion like many cooking oils do. Coconut oil increases your metabolism and helps you lose weight . It also supports GI and immune health, which are key in aiding the thyroid. Replace your cooking and baking oils with coconut oil and make sure to consume at least 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (like THIS) a day. I like to add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil to my morning tea or coffee. Adding 1 tablespoon to a smoothie is also a great way to incorporate coconut oil to your diet.
Avoid peanuts and peanut butter as they also contain goitrogens.
Drink Bone Broth daily.
Bone broth from healthy, pasture raised animals is a wonderful healing elixer that helps heal and seal the gut lining and also strengthens the immune system. Both of these are crucial for optimum thyroid health. Drink 1 cup of bone broth daily and add in a pinch of sea salt and kelp flakes to further support thyroid health.
