Easy to Solve Thyroid Problems naturally?
“Many times I have seen chronically exhausted patients exhibit complete symptom resolution after several weeks of adding 5-10 grams of seaweeds to their daily diets, ” Ryan Drum, PhD, AHG.
They provide thyroid gland aid from both sustained regular reliable dietary sources of bio molecular iodine and from thyroxin-like molecules present in marine algae.
Uncomplicated seaweed therapy works as a low thyroid treatment for most cases of underactive thyroid. Why?
Here's how to use sea vegetables in your thyroid diet plan:
Herbalist Ryan Drum, has successfully prescribed daily dietary dosages of 3-5 grams of a good powdered kelp which provide enough iodine and most of the essential trace elements:
Sea Veggies Best For Your Thyroid!
Given that pollution can be avoided by no one, we would all do well to add foods to our diet that protect the thyroid, even if not diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
A simple effective step is to use seaweeds, or sea vegetables as your preventive medicine.
All essential minerals are provided by dietary seaweeds. No land plant even remotely approaches seaweeds as sources of metabolically-required minerals.

What FOODS SUPPRESS Your Thyroid?
SOY and Cruciferous VEGGIES of the cabbage family: broccoli, cauliflower etc.
1. DIETARY FLAVONOIDS: The isoflavones in soya foods may depress thyroid function through TPO inhibition. Genistein and equol, are inhibitors of thyroid peroxidase, the thyroid follicle enzyme which makes T4 and T3.
This inhibition may generate goiters, hypothyroidism, and autoimmune thyroiditis.
Isoflavones can stop the thyroid from making hormones. (In scientific terms: these flavenoids inhibit the thyro-peroxidase that catalyzes iodination and thyroid hormone biosynthesis.” PMID: 17651757 PubMed)
2. CABBAGE, CAULIFLOWER, KALE, RUTABAGA, AND KOHLRABI, contain a compound called thiocyanate found in such Brassicae plants which INHIBITS the thyroid.
3. CORN AND SOYA OILS: Pig farmers know that pigs will grow fatter by feeding them corn and soy oil. Why?
4. Tobacco smoke is also a source of thiocyanate.
1. IODINE DEFICIENCY: the essential trace element iodine is the central constituent of thyroid hormones.
Some experts say that our current dietary iodine intake is too low so that we are not protected against today’s levels of radiation and environmental pollution that harms the thyroid.
Fluorine, chlorine, (in our water) and bromine are all more chemically reactive than iodine; when in the body, they all tend to disrupt stable iodine molecules, displacing the iodine and causing its excretion.
We get bromine from pesticides, dough conditioners, and from disinfectants for water in hot tubs and commercial spas.
2. SELENIUM DEFICIENCY: An essential trace element, selenium, is also required for appropriate thyroid hormone synthesis, activation and metabolism. (Biochimie. 1999 May;81(5):527-33.)
You can have Thyroid Problems because of THYROID DISRUPTIVE MEDICATIONS:
ALL CORTICOSTEROIDS Tend To Depress Thyroid Function!
Both internal and topical steroid use, including:
ANTICOAGULANTS e.g. warfarin (Coumadin) can also aggravate existing mild hypothyroidism.
Industrial and household pollutants are making us fat.
Scientists at Laval University found that as people lose weight, the chemicals that had been stored in their fat were released into their blood.
And as the levels of pollutants rose in dieters, THEIR LEVELS OF ESSENTIAL THYROID HORMONES – NECESSARY FOR MAINTAINING AN EFFICIENT METABOLISM – FELL DRAMATICALLY.
According to Dr. Angelo Tremblay, who has studied their effect on weight loss programs, says that:
HORMONE DISRUPTORS are everywhere in our daily life:
Pollutants CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN, according to Dr. Baillie-Hamilton, of the Occupational and Environmental Health Research Group, Stirling University, because of the way industrial pollutants interact with the sympathetic nervous system.
These hormones also affect the ability and desire to exercise, as well as regulating body temperature, so that while you are exercising you are also burning calories more efficiently.
These chemicals reduce levels of important hormones that are needed to lose weight and maintain weight loss, because they block and even destroy the hormone receptors in fat cells!
"This means the hormones can’t communicate with the fat cell and the cell becomes less sensitive to those metabolism-regulating hormones that are in circulation.”
Dentists are still using mercury even though mercury is a well known anti thyroid substance -- causing inhibition of deiodinases and thyroid peroxidase.
Yes, ongoing emotional stress can be the main cause of your thyroid problems!
The “relaxation reserves” for any person are all the things in one’s life that feel good. This includes adequate sleep, refreshing exercise, enjoyable activities – compared to all the demands of a person’s life.

Treating hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone can:
A clinical trial found a significant worsening in anxiety scores with L-thyroxine versus a placebo!
Do you have an autoimmune thyroid disease?
It's named after the first doctor who described this condition, Dr. Hakaru Hashimoto, in 1912.
What causes Hashimotos thyroiditis?
It is an autoimmune thyroid disease, which means that the body inappropriately attacks the thyroid gland--as if it was foreign tissue.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis tends to run in families, and also go along with other autoimmune conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, and celiac disease.
This autoimmune thyroid disease is 5-10 times more common in women than in men and most often starts in adulthood.
