How To Reset Your Thyroid In 30 Days

Natural Thyroid Remedies by Dr. Angela Walk

Many people have an under active thyroid and don't even know it. The symptoms can be subtle and different for everyone.

Disorders of the thyroid can be broken into two categories. Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).

Hypothyroid is the most common, by a long stretch, so we will confine our discussion to this condition.

Hypothyroidism occurs when your thyroid does not make enough thyroid hormone. Your thyroid is your body's gas pedal and it controls metabolism.

If it is under-active, your body is sluggish and you will see symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, and depression.

Most cases of hypothyroid are actually caused by an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

One of the primary sources of this disorder is when you are eating certain foods that create inflammation in the body and in the gut and digestive system.

Over time, when you continually eat foods that are harmful, your immune system gets confused and begins attacking your thyroid.

The #1 worst food for your thyroid is gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and grains. You have to completely take gluten out of your diet to begin to heal your thyroid.

Without a healthy thyroid, weight loss is nearly impossible.

Using symptoms as a way of identifying your imbalances is often more accurate than typical hormone testing procedures because hormone levels fluctuate all day long. This creates inaccuracy.

Many times our patients have had testing of their thyroid, adrenal, or other hormone levels and have been told that they are "normal" while our hormone management assessment showed that their hormone levels were anything-but-optimal.

If you have more than 5 symptoms in this list, you very likely have an under-active thyroid.
