Dietary Guidelines To Help Reverse Thyroid Disease
Jan 2019

The thyroid gland is a small butterfly shaped gland found at the base of the neck and the pituitary gland that releases the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is a tiny organ found at the base of the brain. TSH makes the thyroid gland produce the hormone thyroxine which it releases into the bloodstream. Sometimes, an underactive  thyroid can’t release the hormone properly which results in several health problems.

Medical experts say that thyroid medicines are to be taken for lifetime. It is also difficult for people with thyroid issues to lose weight. However, diet and other lifestyle changes make a huge difference in reversing this disease. It can also encourage weight loss.

When we align with the rules of Nature, we will be healed. There are several cases where thyroid dosages were reduced gradually and people have seen improvement in their weight. However, the diet should have appropriate amounts of nutrients like selenium and iodine which is required, if one is to be cured.

A thyroid problem requires time to heal, therefore, you have to be very patient. A minimum of six to eight months of consistency and dedication will make a huge difference, as a change in lifestyle is needed. To see improvement and permanent changes, consistent effort is necessary and this doesn’t happen in a day’s time.
