The conventional treatment for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is using synthroid at various dosages to match with your body’s production of triiodothyronine (T-3) and thyroxine (T-4). Synthroid is a synthetic hormone identical to the natural hormones in your body. Because the production of T3 and T4 fluctuates based on your body’s need to metabolize sugar and fats you consume, the dosage of synthroid needs to be adjusted to avoid overdose of the drug. Frequent visits to your doctor’s office are essential for blood tests to determine the T3 and T4 levels.
Many of my clients have decided to take their health in their hands by improving their life styles, and go for natural remedies.
The following are common natural remedies for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid):
Yeast –Free Nutritional Program:
As mentioned in previous articles, excessive intake of sugar and fats make the thyroid gland overworked and exhausted. Therefore, it’s essential to feed your body with a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals. These items are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites. When you are on the yeast-free nutritional program, you feed your body – but starve the little enemies within. To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.
Yeasts and parasites develop colonies at the weak parts of your body. Herbal therapy is essential to getting rid of the excessive yeasts and parasites so your body’s innate intelligence will have a clean slate to heal. Since yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins (they go hand in hand) a potent herbal formula is needed to remove both yeasts and parasites simultaneously. Yeast-Para Control is designed for this purpose.
Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys, and remove the “debris” created by Yeast-Para Control. Therefore, the combination of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea works wonders for detoxification!
Female Vitality or Male Vitality is designed to balance your hormones, increase cool, calm energy, improve your mental concentration, metabolism, and productivity, reactivate your libido, and uplift your mood. For those who want to reduce the dosage of synthroid or not taking synthroid at all, Female Vitality or Male Vitality is a good supplement or replacement.
Stress is part of daily life. Stress can be a motivating force for you move forward. One just needs to learn stress management techniques to make stress work for you instead of against you.
Daily meditation, stress releasing technique, prayers, affirmations and meditative walks are all helpful self-administered methods to manage stress properly. For details regarding all these stress management techniques, please read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.
Adequate Iodine Intake:
The trace mineral iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones. Many Americans have iodine deficiency. Sea vegetables such as kelp is an excellent source of iodine. One table spoon of kelp yields approximately 12 mg of iodine while the daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1mg =1,000 mcg). Eating sea vegetables regularly will help maintain a strong thyroid function. There is a recipe for Seaweed Tofu Soup in my yeast free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.
The above natural remedies have proven very effective for the treatment of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). Depending on the T3 and T4 levels in your blood tests, you may want to wean yourself off of synthetic hormones by incorporating these natural remedies.
