How to maintain a healthy diet with Hypothyroidism

Curing thyroid disease requires a long-term commitment for at least a year and maintaining a proper diet. It is very important to provide essential nutrients to our body.

Treatment Recommendations

The Best Dietician in Delhi prescribes to Eliminate and discard all non-stick cookware.

Eliminate Soy - Soy suppresses thyroid functions. It imbalances hormones, and it has been shown to cause goiters (an enlargement of the thyroid gland) in previously healthy individuals, which shows that it disrupts iodine usage.

Adhere to an Alkaline Diet - as per the best dietician in India. Doing This is extremely helpful when curing any chronic disease. Reference the Body pH and Disease article to guide you.

Balance Estrogen Levels (Women) - Excess estrogen slows down the thyroid gland. It means eliminating birth control medications, increasing the fiber in the diet, and avoiding all non-organic meats. Growth hormones in meats lead to imbalanced hormones. Reduce dairy intake because milk often contains lots of estrogens.

Exercise - Find a fun physical activity, and do it often. We believe that exercise could half the cure time in some cases, and curing is not possible without it.

Foods To Have During Hypothyroidism

Iodine - The thyroid needs iodine to function correctly, and lots of people now suffer from iodine deficiencies. To test yourself, place some iodine (we use 2%) on your stomach. Make a dot the size of a silver dollar (or twice the size of a British 50p). If it disappears within 12 hours, then you are iodine deficient. Keep adding iodine in increasing amounts, until it no longer goes in 12 hours. Do not use povidone-iodine and do not orally consume iodine. It is primarily a necessary precaution for those with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Check the link for other options and considerations concerning safe iodine supplementation. Red marine algae are the only means to safely orally supplement with iodine, but beware of different types of underwater vegetation. Baked fish is the safest and most natural way to consume iodine but beware of bottom feeders, shellfish, krill, etc. Think kosher regarding the choice of fish.

Chlorophyll - Supplementing with chlorophyll provides essential copper, helps oxygenate the body, builds healthy red blood cells, and it overall assists with skin health. Chlorophyll is a safe method of orally supplementing with copper. Those who are using our Colloidal Copper Lotion are unlikely to need more copper.

Pears and Apples - The ancient Chinese discovered that pears have a dominant tendency to balance hormones; especially in women. Pears help most when mixed with or juiced with apples. Try our pear juice recipe, and drink it regularly.

Things To Avoid

The best dietician in Rajasthan says to avoid the following items.

Avoid all sources of fluoride - As already mentioned, fluoride suppresses the thyroid, and is likely to be the leading cause of Hypothyroidism. Drink spring water, avoid soft drinks, use fluoride-free toothpaste, use a shower filter, and throw away. Both coffee and tea naturally contain fluoride, so use iodine to compensate if these drinks are indispensable.

Avoid processed food, and have a natural diet - to help the body to heal itself, remove burdens on its immune system. This means that all processed foods and artificial flavors, colors and preservatives, white flour, white sugar, table salt, hydrogenated oils, aluminum, high fructose corn syrup, and etcetera should be eliminated from the diet. Organic food is ideal. Do not trust marketing that reads "All Natural" because this phrase is intentionally unregulated, so that anyone may use it for anything. Read the labels carefully.

Avoid Zinc and Selenium: Studies indicate that severe zinc or selenium deficiencies can cause decreased thyroid hormone levels. Never take zinc on an empty stomach. Brazil nuts are high in both zinc and selenium.

Avoid mustard oil: Buy organic, cold-pressed, coconut oil from a health food store. Take around one teaspoon of it daily. You can also use it for cooking with, but be warned that it smokes at low cooking temperatures, so it should only be used for low-heat cooking. Coconut oil speeds metabolism encourages the production of the thyroid hormone and kills candida yeast.

Avoid Canola Oil: Canola oil interferes with the production of thyroid hormones, amongst its many other dangers.
