Hypothyroid Natural Treatments, Natural Remedies & Home Remedies
Hypothyroidism is the most common of all the thyroid diseases. Dr. McDougall offers a wealth of medical information and advice about hypothyroid natural treatment. I have attended a Dr. McDougall 5 day retreat that helped me to understand the importance of eating a starch based diet. His program outlines all the reasons why our western diet is so unhealthy for us and consequently why so many people are overweight, sick and full of disease. Basically if we change our diet we can began to heal immediately. There are many theories state that thyroid conditions can be results of various nutritional imbalances, so this is all the more reason to learn all you can about eating healthy and taking excellent care of ourselves in all ways. Do a web search for “McDougall thyroid” to read a great article about this condition.
In the following 3 minute video, Dr McDougall explains the condition of hypothyroidism and what you should do about it from a perspective of natural healing.
Selenium Natural Remedy
A very wonderful antioxidant called selenium is something we all need in our bodies to function properly; yet it is sometimes deficient in some of us thus causing hypothyroidism. Selenium helps to convert T4 thyroid hormone to active T3. Selenium is a natural remedy for hypothyroidism. You can find selenium in your health food store.
If you have hypothyroidism you may need to boost your metabolism. You can boost your metabolism through simply making use of a remedy that includes eating smaller more frequent meals versus eating three larger meals a day. It is imperative that you also focus on the quality of the food you are eating. Make sure you eat fresh, organic (when available) non-processed fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I also add black cohosh and ginseng to my diet because both of these herbs help to boost your metabolism.
My hypothyroid condition was greatly improved when I began supplementing my diet with iodine. Apparently I was iodine deficient. Kelp is a natural treatment for hypothyroid. Kelp is rich in iodine and also it is inexpensive. I take a small dose of a kelp tablet each day. Normally we would already be getting enough iodine in our diets simply through the vegetables and fruits we eat however our soils have been iodine and nutrient depleted and therefore many of us are not receiving proper nutrients through our diet alone and we have to take supplements. Foods that do contain iodine are bananas, radishes, potatoes, oatmeal and other foods.
You may have not ever heard of bladderwrack because I had not. Bladderwrack is seaweed and it is amazingly rich in iodine. People have used bladderwrack for numerous reasons including weight loss and hypothyroidism. Bladder wrack stimulates the thyroid gland helping to increase your metabolism. Bladderwrack also has many minerals such as zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron. If you are suffering from hypothyroidism try bladderwrack it just might help you to feel better!
