The truth of the matter is that in the days that were living in right now your local doctor is more than likely to prescribe some pills for your condition rather they try to help you tackle the root cause of your issues. But the truth is that for issues like hypothyroidism often taking the natural approach such as improving one’s diet will result in the symptoms greatly decreasing without the patient actually experiencing any sort of side effects!
I am telling you right now that it really doesn’t matter how many pills you take, the fact is that you will never be able to overcome hypothyroidism if you are not getting the basics right such as your diet.
Your number one priority must be to work really hard to implement a solid hypothyroidism diet that you will be able to follow for the rest of your life. If you’re able to do this right then trust me you will start to see the benefits of all the pills and medication that your doctor prescribes you.
Obviously with a disease such as hypothyroidism there are many people in the industry all of whom claim that there are different ways to overcome the issue. Every so called expert seems to have a different take on what it takes to overcome hypothyroidism so much so that the average person is often left more confused than when they started.
However if we just look at the reality then we will come to see that the vast majority of the guides that are out there on hypothyroidism are just plain out of date and have solutions that just don’t work.
But if you just do a little more research into the latest scientific research then you will find that there are many scientifically proven ways to help you overcome the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
But the sad thing is that it often takes about 5 − 10 years for this scientific data to actually trickle down to the mass public.
So unfortunately you will find that most people will just take the medicine that their doctors prescribe them and never actually get to improve their diet… both of which will ultimately result in the person causing themselves more harm than good!
So while the unfortunate reality is that most people out there are never going to stray too far from the conventional path it is my hope that the few of you that are actually reading this article will go away and implement the tips that I share with you and ultimately help yourselves overcome hypothyroidism for good.
You’ll notice an improvement in your health once you start to eat the right foods.
Below you will find 5 foods that I’d recommend every single person with hypothyroidism start to eat on a regular basis.
I’ve done my best to not only share which foods you must eat but I’ve also taken the time to really break each one down to help you understand exactly why you need to start eating that particular food and how it will benefit you in terms of overcoming hypothyroidism for good.
I will tell you right now that I honestly believe that you should never believe everything that you’re told but rather get out there and do some solid research for yourself. This way you will be able to verify the claims that people make.
1. Don’t Touch Anti-Thyroid Foods
I have to say from all the food tips that I’m going to be sharing with you here today this one will be the most important so it is going to be in your interest to actually pay attention. While this tip is really important you should note that it is rather controversial.
The truth is that many of the so called health foods that you find in supermarkets these days are not actually that healthy for you at all. In fact you will often find that these foods will actually be contributing to the symptoms of hypothyroidism that you experience on a day to day basis.
Foods that come to mind include any products out there that have soy in them. So it is going to be in your long term interest to avoid things such as soybeans, edamame, soy milk and tofu etc.
The reason you are going to want to avoid soy products is because they are very estrogenic by nature, and what this means is that they will literally prevent your thyroid from secreting thyroid hormones.
The whole reason that I’m sharing this point with you here is because you will find an incredible number of hypothyroidism diet systems out there that will advise you to consume a lot of soy! Unfortunately what these programs don’t realize is that the latest scientific research shows that soy does a lot of harm to those that suffer with hypothyroidism.
Another food that you’re going to want to totally avoid from now on even though it is touted as being extremely healthy for you is polyunsaturated fats.
Yes, you will find many of the so called experts out there tell you that these types of fats are extremely good for you but I can tell you from personal experience and from solid scientific data that the reality is quite the opposite.
When it comes to your thyroid these sorts of fats will only be causing you damage. In fact these fats really just stop your thyroid working at all. To start with they will actually prevent your thyroid from releasing any amount of thyroid hormone.
Secondly, any thyroid hormone that is in your body will actually not be taken to where it is needed in the body. Thirdly, these types of fat will just prevent your body from actually using up the hormone in any way.
Trust me what I’m sharing with you here is complete fact and you can check it out for yourself, which I highly encourage you to do.
From now on you are going to want to avoid eating any foods that contain the above ingredients because it will only result in your thyroid getting worse and worse… not ideal if you’re serious about improving the condition of your health and overcoming hypothyroidism for good.
2. Increase The Amount of Saturated Fats You Consume
You will find that there is a lot of negative press surrounding the consumption of saturated fats but I can tell you right now that these are the fats that are going to be very good for you.
You will likely find the so called experts that are against saturated fats are in fact basing their theories on research studies that are completely outdated. If you take a look at the many recent research studies out there then you will come to find that foods which contain saturated fats are actually very good for you!
The first benefit of saturated fats is that they will help you overcome any negative effects that are associated with polyunsaturated fats which you may consume.
Another great thing about saturated fats is the fact that they will help you keep your insulin levels in order which of course will result in your blood sugar levels remaining balanced and steady. The benefit of keeping your blood sugar levels balanced is that your body will not release any stress hormones!
Having too much stress hormone in your body can actually result in your hypothyroidism getting worse and worse.
If you’re serious about overcoming hypothyroidism then it will be in your interest to consume more saturated fats and less of the polyunsaturated variety.
Of course, you will also want to make sure that the saturated fats that you do consume are of the highest quality. Ideally all your foods should be organic and made from animals that were 100% grass fed.
3. Start Eating More Fruit
One great habit you can implement as part of your new hypothyroidism diet is to begin eating a lot more fruit.
The most wonderful thing about fruit is that it contains a lot of great potassium which is really important in terms of getting your blood sugar levels as balanced as possible. I will tell you from doing a lot of research that you are going to want to minimise the amount of insulin that your body actually creates… as in the long term this will help you to reduce the symptoms of hypothyroidism that you experience.
Balanced blood sugar means less stress hormones will be released and as I mentioned before too many stress hormones and you will only be making your hypothyroidism worse.
Now while fruit in general is great for you, there are a few that you are going to want to avoid from now on such as Avocados. The reason I’m telling you to avoid avocados is because they contain a ton of unsaturated fats which aren’t great for you, especially when you are suffering from an under active thyroid.
I really hope you take this point of eating more fruits on board because in the long run you’ll only be benefiting your own health!
4. Start Consuming More Salt
Yes, there is a ton of bad press around when it comes to salt but I have to say that most of it is just plain myth! If you really want to overcome hypothyroidism for good then you are going to have to stop assuming things about food and start looking at the real facts.
Believe me salt (sodium) is a mineral that your body really needs. One of the main reasons for it is that your body actually uses it to ensure that your blood pressure remains stable.
But obviously there are more benefits to using it, especially if you have a low thyroid.
One of the most common symptoms that people with hypothyroidism actually experience is Edema. This is a condition where the cells in your body actually take in more water than they need in any given time.
But of course by your cells taking in so much water it will result in your body excreting excess amounts of sodium out of the cells and out of your body via your urine.
If this continues to happen over a long period of time then you will find that your metabolism will slow right down, which will cause your body to release more and more stress hormones which can ultimately lead you to experiencing insomnia if left untreated. Again this is not great because ultimately your will be making your hypothyroidism worse as time goes on.
Sodium is actually most commonly sourced from salt so it is going to be in your best interest to make sure that it is part of your diet from now on. By keeping it in your diet you will ultimately help to reduce the amount of stress hormones that are released which will help you keep your hypothyroidism in control.
While an excessive amount of salt isn’t great, know that you need a lot more than most people think.
5. Make Sure That You Start Eating Bone Broth Regularly
The truth is that if you’re even a little like me then you probably have never even heard of bone broth let alone tried it. But I can tell you right now that it is one of the best sources of protein that you can actually consume in this day and age.
But if you just go back in time to the 1900’s, you would find that bone broth was extremely common in most people’s everyday diet. But take a look around you today and you will find that most people would rather be consuming McDonald’s than slurping up a bowl of bone broth.
However it is definitely going to be in your interest to make sure that you’re eating plenty of bone broth as part of your hypothyroidism treatment.
Bone broth is not only extremely rich in nutrients and minerals but it is very easy for the body to digest.
While meat is a great source of protein, bone broth has the added benefit of not only being rich in protein but also having a ton of anti inflammatory amino acids which you’re definitely never going to find in any meat out there.
The truth is that most of the information I shared in this article goes against conventional wisdom but I can tell you right now that it is all based on solid scientific facts and not just theory!
However the main point was to help you all understand and appreciate exactly the sort of foods you should be consuming from now on.
The more consistent you are in making these foods a part of your hypothyroidism diet the better your health will get over time and who knows pretty soon you might find yourself jumping up and down for joy.
The truth is that no amount of reading will ever do justice to the kind of suffering people experience when they have hypothyroidism. Only those that have had the disease for a while will truly be able to appreciate the kinds of hardships that they go through every single day of their lives.
If you happen to be among the many people out there that actually suffer from hypothyroidism then I’d highly recommend that you take massive action and see to it that you get the proper treatment. I’d of course recommend that you start with natural means such as implementing a hypothyroidism diet.
So to start with here is the most common symptom that people with hypothyroidism experience:
1. Barely Enough Energy To Get Through The Day
Do you happen to feel tired all the time. So much so that no matter how much sleep you get at night you still wake up like you’re half dead? Well, if this is something that you experience on a regular basis then it may well be a sign that you have hypothyroidism.
Along with being tired all the time you might also feel that your muscles are constantly aching. While this feeling is totally normal if you’ve been involved in some intensive activity such as playing sports or doing some yard work it definitely shouldn’t be something that you experience on a day to day basis.
Another sign that you may have hypothyroidism is that your reflexes might be slower than what they should be. Along with that you might also be experiencing quite a bit of pain in your joints. So make sure you take all these symptoms into consideration if you’re not sure that you have hypothyroidism in the first place.
2. Your Body Composition Has Changed Over Time
Have you recently come to find that your nails are extremely brittle and are slowly but surely breaking away? Have you found the skin on your elbows and knees suddenly start to become extremely dry? If so then this could be a very good sign that you have hypothyroidism.
Is weight gain something that you’ve noticed recently? Perhaps you feel a lump in your throat that wasn’t there before? Are you noticing some sudden rashes on your body that weren’t there previously? And do you feel that your eyes and mouth are always feeling a little dry?
Well, if you are experiencing any of these symptoms then there is a good chance that you may have an under active thyroid. Don’t take these symptoms lightly because the sooner you realize you are suffering from the condition the faster you are going to be able to take action and get your health back in order!
3. You’re Completely Demotivated
Perhaps you feel like you’re completely indecisive at times and this is just getting worse and worse with time. Or maybe you are finding it really hard to concentrate on the things that really matter to you for any long periods of time.
These sorts of issues such as the lack of ability to focus is something that a lot of patients who are hypothyroid actually experience fairly regularly. But trust me all you need to do in order to reduce the impact of these symptoms is get on the hypothyroidism diet!
Obviously knowing the symptoms is the place to start but even more important than that is to make sure that you try to find the proper and most effective hypothyroidism treatment that will help you get the best results in the long run. No point in knowing you have the symptoms if you’re not going to do anything about it.
Other less common symptoms that you may experience include things like feeling dizzy on a regular basis and having an irregular heartbeat.
Now don’t feel that you need to experience every single one of these symptoms for you to take some sort of action. Often having one or two is enough for you to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism so make sure that you get yourself checked out by your local Doctor.
All people are different, so know that no two people are going to experience the same symptoms.
Please don’t be one of those people that actually is experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism but just pushes the thought away because they feel it is just because they are leading a stressful life. Better to be safe and get yourself checked out than be sorry later!
If any of the symptoms that I’ve mentioned in this article resonate with you then I’d highly recommend that you visit your local doctor as soon as you can to get yourself checked out! On top of that I’d highly encourage you to check out the hypothyroid diet because it is extremely effective and in most cases a lot of your symptoms will totally disappear.
