Food for Your Thyroid

Don’t Let These Symptoms Go Unaddressed.

According to the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, an estimated 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid disease and 13 million people go undiagnosed.  Besides stress, the following are the most common causes of thyroid problems:

  1. Deficiencies of iodine and selenium.
  2. Food sensitivities to gluten and A1 Casein (dairy) allergy
  3. Toxins—especially heavy metals and radiation exposure
  4. Hormone imbalances—cortisol too high from stress, too many carbs, not enough fat in the diet

Symptoms of Low Thyroid

  • Depression
  • Poor memory
  • Absentmindedness
  • Feeling of deep gloom for no apparent reason
  • Irritability for no apparent reason
  • Chronic fatigue and weakness
  • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
  • Hair loss or coarse, dry hair

  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Inability to remember things
  • Constipation
  • Muscle aches and cramps
  • Fluid retention or puffiness

Food for Your Thyroid 

  1. Avoid all gluten and dairy. These foods can cause leaky gut syndrome which can contribute to inflammation of the thyroid gland. Only consume dairy from goats or sheep. Also, the molecular structure of gliadin, the protein portion of gluten, closely resembles that of the thyroid gland. When gliadin breaches the protective barrier of the gut, and enters the bloodstream, the immune system tags it for destruction.
  2. Avoid BPA. Avoid all plastics with BPA.
  3. Increase your iodine if you are low. Take kelp tablets or liquid iodine. Watercress is one of the best vegetable sources of iodine. Studies show that watercress helps the thyroid.
  4. Increase selenium. Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium. Take 200 mg of Selenium a day. I recommend Pure Encapsulations.
  5. Take CoQ100. I recommend Thorne. Take 200 mg per day.
  6. Do a heavy metal detox. You can use a combination of Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Chlorella, and Cilantro.
  7. Ashwagandha can help reduce stress and support the adrenals and thyroid. See Vitality Renew.
  8. Avoid sugar, refined carbs and starches.
  9. Get my juice powder Garden’s Best. Its first ingredient is watercress juice powder.
  10. Get my book The Juice Lady’s Remedies for Thyroid Disorders along with the supplement Thyrocsin
