With adequate natural food beat thyroid disease for only two months
Fatigue, weight gain , feeling cold, goiter, poorer quality of hair…
These and many other symptoms associated with thyroid disease, which after diabetes is the most widespread disease of the endocrine system in the world.
According to the World Health Organization, as much as 2 billion people struggling with problems related to improper functioning of this small gland.
From thyroid disease usually get sick women, but with years this is problem that fights more men.
Symptoms that may at first be attributed to menopause or to some chronic illness actually are signs of abnormal thyroid function – hyperthyroidism (increased secretion of hormones) or hypothyroidism (less hormone secretion).
One reason is the lack of iodine in the body, than follow stress, lifestyle, genes…
But there are many other factors which influence should be taken into consideration.
Is there a solution to this serious problem and how to access high-quality?
Food as a natural cure for thyroid
Yes, the solution to the thyroid problems, according some famous doctors – researchers, lies in – the diet.
They agree that only one style of eating (believing that now is the healthiest) is the Mediterranean diet – that’s one that includes foods with low glycemic index and low glycemic charge.
The Mediterranean diet is a solution also for thyroid – you can help your thyroid to strengthen and only in 2 months.
And recent research from the University of Loma (USA) suggests that a vegetarian style diet may actually have a protective function for thyroid health.
The study shows that elimination of red meat (especially beef and pork) reduces the risk of high blood levels of C-reactive protein – CRP.
A high level of this protein is directly related to inflammatory processes in the body, and it is precisely that problems related to the thyroid gland involve inflammation.
So, it is necessary in the two month “reprogramming” your thyroid, along the meat, to eliminate all those foods that stimulate and maintain inflammation in the body.
Good and bad foods
To start, be sure to eliminate all food containing gluten and to involve gluten-free varieties of pasta and bread.
There is suggestion not to consume foods with thiouracil or goitrogens foods, because they affect the level of hormones in the body by which obstructs the functioning of thyroid.
Therefore the brassicas foods such as brussels sprouts, broccoli etc., soy and soy products, as well as all foods that contain refined sugar, are not suitable foods for people with thyroid disease.
• soy and all soy products
• pine nuts
• broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts
• cabbage, Brussels
Use healthy and beneficial fats, nuts, legumes, fruits and vegetables.
An ideal choice is seaweed, rich in iodine and other nutrients, which must be found in yours menu for a healthy thyroid.
There are kelp, kombu, hiijiks, nors, wakame and many more that are a treasure trove of health.
Include nutritious cranberry juice with iodine every morning before breakfast which will be a real elixir for your thyroid.
You can help to your thyroid also with quality food supplements in the form of vitamins and minerals.
But not all dietary supplements are good for the thyroid, and many of them have and interact with synthetic drugs that maybe you are taking as a prescribed medication.
Therefore, it is important to know what kind of vitamins and minerals is necessary to take, and that require special caution.
Recommended are: iodine, B vitamins, zinc and selenium, and food rich in L-tyrosine.
There are also supplements that are not recommended in medication and in which foods and drinks (coffee, etc.) should be careful when taking synthetic therapy.
With exercise to healthy thyroid
IF you are not moving, your thyroid will not move either.
Exercise of your body is an important factor in ensuring the overall health and in the thyroid is crucial.
If you suffer from disturbed thyroid function, you must know that you are not for intensive trainings that are expecting to cross the borders of your endurance.
No, for thyroid is essential to practice up to a maximum 70 percent of yours full power!
Anything above that, too much strain, will result in additional exhaustion of your body and will create new pressure on already disturbed thyroid.
It will be an additional shock for your body that will leave you in a vicious circle of accumulating weight, fatigue, indigestion and poor quality of tanning and hair.
So, start with light exercises, walking, aerobics, cycling, and then increase your own endurance and strength.
Be persistent, the results will be noticed very soon.
