Hypothyroidism – Underactive Thyroid Natural Cures

Hypothyroidism – Underactive Thyroid

Natural thyroid hormone is more effective than the synthetic type, but it is more difficult to obtain.  Under proper circumstances, Vitamins A, C, B complex, B12, E, coenzyme Q10, magnesium, manganese, zinc, selenium, iodine, amino acid tyrosine, DHEA, and melatonin may be beneficial.

Aerobic exercise may help to correct a low-thyroid condition.

It is never advisable to drink tap water. Most tap water is full of fluorine and chlorine, two chemicals that inhibit your ability to absorb iodine. Ensure that you eat plenty of:

  • Cocoanut oil
  • Flaxseeds
  • Fish
  • Sea Salt
  • Sea Vegetables (Dulse, Kelp, Kombu, Nori, and Wakame)
  • Walnuts

Avoid the following foods unless they are cooked. Cooking the vegetables inactivates the goitrogens found in the following foods, so that they are safe to eat for someone with low thyroid:

  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale
  • Soy
