Are you looking to naturally treat your thyroid? If so, then you will want to check out these natural thyroid remedies that I recommend for all thyroid patients.
The best part about these natural remedies is that they can be used IN ADDITION to thyroid medication that you are taking or they can be used by themselves to help avoid the use of medication (if that is your preference).
These thyroid natural remedies have been tested by me and I’ve used them successfully in MANY patients.
Here are 5 natural treatments and regimens that you should consider if you have a thyroid problem (either Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or hypothyroidism):
#1. Diet (what you eat!)
This is one of the biggest things that you can do right away to improve your thyroid. But what should you be eating?
I’ve included a list of thyroid approved diets which you can follow. All of these have several things in common and should help to naturally improve your thyroid:
AIP diet, whole 30, elimination diet, gluten-free/dairy-free diet, and keto diet.
Just starting with any of these is better than eating the standard american diet.
Most people think they can just jump on any old thyroid support supplement and call it a day. I would challenge that way of thinking and instead focus on problems which exist in your body which also negatively impact your body.
You can address things like gut dysfunction, weight loss (by taking certain supplements), and hormone imbalances.
By doing this you can indirectly improve your thyroid function.
Meditation is probably the most underutilized therapy. Meditation helps reduce stress, it helps clam down inflammation, and it helps with anxiety/depression. If stress is killing your thyroid gland then you MUST be meditating.
#4. Essential oils.
Essential oils can help improve your thyroid via aromatherapy or because of their action on your cells. The essential oils that I recommend for thyroid function include:
Peppermint (helps improve exercise capacity)
Lavender (helps reduce cortisol)
Lemongrass (helps with inflammation)
Lastly, yoga can be used to help drive down stress but also to act as an exercise (which increases your thyroid directly).
Certain poses tend to work better than others, though, so stick with these poses if you choose to do yoga:
These poses help improve blood flow to your thyroid which allows vitamins and nutrients to get to your gland. If you are taking supplements then you should also be doing yoga to ensure that they make it to your gland!
