What is hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism means that your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of certain crucial hormones. It doesn’t cause noticeable symptoms in the early stages. But as your metabolism continues to slow, it may develop more-obvious problems such as fatigue, obesity, joint pain, infertility and etc.
In most cases, hypothyroidism is rooted in an immune system gone awry. 90% of people with hypothyroidism have Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune hypothyroid condition, whereby the immune system attacks thyroid tissue. Therefore, the thyroid gland becomes inflamed and impaired resulting in an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism).
Most people with hypothyroidism are taking daily thyroid hormone replacement medication. Of course, medicines often come with side effects. However, natural remedies may cause fewer side effects and fit into your overall lifestyle better.
What natural remedies can help with hypothyroidism?
Selenium is a trace element that plays a part in thyroid hormone metabolism. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis often diminishes the body’s selenium supply. It has shown to help balance thyroxine, or T4 levels in some people by supplementing this trace element. Talk to your doctor about how much selenium you should take.
Sugar and processed foods can lead to increased inflammation in your body. Inflammation can slow down the conversion of T4 to T3, which can make your symptoms and thyroid disease worsen.
Hypothyroidism can affect your body’s vitamin B-12 levels. Taking a vitamin B-12 supplement can help repair the damage your hypothyroidism caused. Vitamin B-12 can also help with the tiredness caused by thyroid disease. Thyroid disease also impacts your vitamin B-1 levels. Most people can safely take vitamin B-12 at recommended levels. Talk with your doctor about how much vitamin B-12 may be right for you and if you can take it.
A lot of people with thyroid disease have celiac disease. It is a digestive disorder in which people cannot handle consuming gluten. Although research doesn’t currently support a gluten-free diet for the treatment of thyroid disease, many people with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and hypothyroidism do feel better after reducing eating wheat and other gluten-containing food.
Apart from those above natural remedies, another way that can help with hypothyroidism naturally is scalar energy. Most people who suffer from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis have antibodies of some herpesvirus(herpesvirus 6 or parvovirus B19). Scalar energy can boost your immune system and then kill these herpesviruses. It can also help with the symptoms associated with hypothyroidism like skin irritation, stomach problems, and inflammation.
