To treat hypothyroidism naturally without drugs…
Most people (like you maybe) who have hypothyroidism have low levels of Selenium & Vitamin E, Iodine and Zinc & Copper in their diets causing hypothyroidism and…
You can easily improve your thyroid function to boost your metabolism (for faster weight loss) quickly & easily by eating the right foods so…
To get more Selenium & Vitamin E in your diet…
To get more iodine in your diet…
To get more Zinc & copper in your diet…
6 Ways you can cure hypothyroidism naturally…
1. Get 20 minutes of sunlight daily
The best source of Vitamin D to help cure hypothyroidism comes from natural sunlight. Vitamin D is necessary for normal thyroid hormone production.
2. You may need more L-tyrosine
L-tyrosine is just an amino acid that is used by your thyroid, along with iodine, to activate the metabolism boosting T3 and T4 hormones and… L-tyrosine is found in many protein foods such as meats, dairy products, fish, wheat and oats but…
If protein makes up 30% of your diet then you're probably already getting enough L-tyrosine in your diet and eating more may not help cure your hypothyroid problem.
3. Try not to get stressed out too much
Bad stress is one of the major causes of hypothyroidism and as you may know… Stress causes the hormone Cortisol to be released in your body and… Cortisol limits your thyroid hormone production and Cortisol also causes belly fat so…
4. Avoid Chlorine & Fluoride
Chlorine & Fluoride BLOCK the iodine receptors in the thyroid gland and you can go here to see why iodine is important for treating hypothyroidism but basically…
The less Iodine = Less thyroid hormone production and since most tap water is full of fluorine & chlorine…
You need to drink bottled water that is Chlorine & Fluoride free and you need to avoid toothpaste that contains fluoride and just to prove how important it is that you avoid fluoride…
Fluoride use to be used as a drug to treat hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid) because it makes the thyroid underactive very quickly.
5. Stop Smoking
Smoking impairs both thyroid hormone secretion and thyroid hormone action so if you're going to smoke - Use an E-Cigarette that will not damage your thyroid.
6. Exercise 30-to-60 minutes a day
Exercising will improve blood flow to your thyroid which will lead to more production of thyroid hormone and the more intense your exercise is = the better the blood flow to your thyroid.
3 Herbs that help treat hypothyroidism…
Ashwagandha has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine to support the thyroid gland. Studies show that it enhances thyroid function and produces a significant increase in T4 thyroid hormone.
2. Guggul extract
Research in mice shows Guggul extract to have very strong thyroid stimulating actions & it increases iodine uptake (see why that's I important here) and…
New research on women with hypothyroidism shows that women who took a Guggul supplement every day were more likely to lose weight.
3. Coleus Foreskohlii
A herb native to subtropical areas of India, Thailand and Burma. It is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. Its active constituent Forskolin has been shown to increase the production of thyroid hormones and stimulate their release.
The foods you want to avoid with hypothyroidism are Goitrogens &…
Goitrogens are mainly found in soybean-related foods & cruciferous vegetables and many other foods like peaches, strawberries and millet (click here to see the full list) and…
You want to avoid Goitrogens because they contain chemicals that make it harder for your thyroid to make thyroid hormones that keep your metabolism normal and since it may be impossible for you to completely avoid all goitrogenic foods in your diet…
You can cook goitrogenic foods to remove the chemicals that interfere with normal thyroid function plus… Eating these goitrogenic foods in moderation and not excessively eating them won't have any bad effects on your thyroid and…
Here's a list of some common Goitrogenic foods…
If you think you have hypothyroidism because you can't lose weight…
Then "Not being able to lose weight" is not the only sign you may have hypothyroidism because…
Here are some other symptoms to look for before you say have hypothyroidism…
Hypothyroidism self assessment test
To see if there's a chance you might have hypothyroidism… Just take the test below and after you finish the test… You can see the results of your test at the bottom of the test.

Fluoride damages the thyroid. It also causes dementia similar to Alzheimer’s disease and probably Alzheimer’s disease itself.
Irrigating with municipal water poisons the soil with fluoride. I hope to persuade you to use your influence and contacts to get this evil custom ended.
Fluoride in water is recommended for tooth protection. Fluoride in water no longer provides this protection, probably because of increasing fluoride in food from fluoride insecticides and tooth paste. However, even if it did, it would not be worth it, because it is more poisonous than lead and only marginally less so than arsenic. Once in the environment, it has an infinite life. If you know how long it takes to reach the groundwater, please let me know.
It inhibits thyroid ( www.fluoridealert.org ), synergistically with aluminum causes a disease similar to Alzheimer’s disease jech.bmj.com (Masters) , causes bone degeneration [Reddy] [Susheela and Mohan] for fluoride interferes with the hydroxylation of proline to hydroxyproline. And fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney, trachea and arteries [Susheela and Sharma] [Sharma] [Susheela and Mukerjee] [Marian Drozdz et al]. It decreases intelligence in children (Lu). (See charles_w.tripod.com ) These side effects are far more serious than tooth caries especially since caries can be prevented with a diet adequate in calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin D, and phosphate. Also they can be cured with anacardic acids in cashew plants and nuts (see charles_w.tripod.com ).
In addition to the above circumstances mildly adversely affecting health (“mildly”, that is, if applied properly in minute amounts), fluoride enters the bodies of people in wildly varying amounts. Fluoride is applied largely for the purpose of protecting children. But to expect small children to apply tooth paste poison correctly without medical instruction, or for that matter even with instruction, is inane. There is also the danger that some parts of the adult population will have more than small intakes. Many municipal water supplies have fluoride added, so that people who must drink large amounts of water, such as people with damaged kidneys, or who do drink large amounts of water because of recommendations of health purists, will receive large amounts. Richmond says that fluorinating water has no perceptible affect on kidneys in children, but that fluoride in water for dialysis should be controlled [Richmond]. Another group at risk are people who eat large amounts of dried food that must be reconstituted with water such as babies and maybe soldiers. All this happens with no or little reduction of tooth caries from water fluoridation [Seppa]. The ADA has warned mothers not to make up formula with fluoridated water.
This increased fluoride intake is also true for people who drink much tea [Gulati], since tea leaves pick up large amounts from some soils , and probably other plants do also [Xie]. Coffee has high amounts of fluoride from insecticides. Fluoride compounds are applied to plants as insecticides, especially grapes. Most of these fluorides end up in the soil, and therefore probably in many plants.
I would like to gain your support in getting poisonous fluoride and fluoride insecticides removed from United States food . It has bad side effects on the thyroid and the brain. It is especially damaging to people who drink a lot of fluoridated water such as babies drinking made up milk formula, old people with kidney problems, and perspiring people who use reconstituted fruit juice, If it can not be removed, at least a tax should be put on it sufficient to pay for the diseases it causes. That would be only fair.
If you can not get fluoride removed, perhaps you can at least acquaint people about an iodide cure or antidote. You may see these concepts discussed in charles_w.tripod.com . That antidote may wok for the thyroid, but I doubt if it will strengthen fluoride damaged bone

Treating hypothyroidism without drugs is not treating it at all.
Its a dangerous thing to do and could end up with you in a coma. I would not recommend it to anyone, please check with a qualified GP or endocryologist first. I can predict now exactly what they will say.
What are your qualifications Adrian to recommend such dangerous advice to people.
July 17, 2013
I disagree with Papa. I have hypothyroidism caused by a doctor giving me too much radioactive iodine for a stress test and I had immediate consequences that night. When tested, my TSH was very high. Afterwards, I began treating with herbs, supplements, and acupuncture. Was doing very well for 18 months. Unfortunately, because of the expense, I then chose to take synthroid which is cheaper, however, it does not solve all the issues, as has been experienced by most people who take Synthroid. I became worse off; significantly more weight gain & loss of lean tissue. Now, I cannot go more than 2 days without synthroid......as opposed to when I was being treated naturally, I could go for a month. Synthroid has further affected my thyroid's ability to perform. So now I am stuck with Synthroid for the rest of my life......and it's halfway success.

Hi , today I was diagnosed with a Tsh level of 143 . One doctor told me that I have to take life long medication. Please please tell me if I start exercising and controlling my diet I can be cured ? I do not want to take any medications much less life long ones . Please help m out? would homeotheraphy help ? I scored a 68 on your test
July 15, 2013
I'm not a doctor so I can't say if diet would help or not but I will say that all hope is not lost because many people in your same situation have lost weight using the plans on nowloss

I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism 1 year ago. I gained 14Kgs in 5 months. Currently I am on thyroxine sodium tablets 100mcg as prescribed my consulting physician. I have scored 95 in your test. After taking medications within 3 months my TSH level came down to normal. Now my TSH is 3.91. But still I am experiencing severe symptoms as mentioned in your test. This is making my life worse personally and professionally. I have changed nearly 5 jobs in 7 months as I fall sick often. I cannot sit under a fan for more than 5 minutes, immediately I start to cough continuously. I cannot sit in AC rooms as I fall sick which makes my temperature rise to 104 degree. I cannot tolerate to sudden changes in seasons. Once I get cold, I suffer from cough and nasal congestion which lasts up to a month or more. I experience joint pain, muscle weakness and sore feet every time. Every morning as I wake up I feel dizzy and very tired and also experience severe headache. My body aches terribly every time. I cannot stand in a place for more than 10 minutes, I feel like somebody is poking my under feet with knife. I get a feeling of my legs might break if I dont sit and lift up my legs from ground. Most of the time I will be just sleeping. Sometimes I sleep for 2 days continuously without waking up. I get angry very soon or go under depression very soon and very often. I have lost concentration in everything. Currently I am jobless. I have started avoiding my friends and also have stopped communicating much with my family. Even My family is finding difficulty in dealing with my anger and depression and sudden mood changes. So they dont talk to me much like before. I have lost interest in my life. I m desperately in need of help. Please advice.
I am 24 year old female. Weight: 69kg. Height: 5 ft.2 ins
May 13, 2013
Not sure if the OP is still around, but TSH levels should be much lower. More like under 2.5. Some doctors and endocrinologists shoot for under 1.5.
When my levels got to over 2, I had lots and lots of problems. You should up your dosage, get a referral to an endocrinologists, if your doctor is telling you 3.87 is normal!
August 18, 2013
Hi! I scored a 44 on the test. I'm 21 now but when I was 18 my doctor told me my thyroid was low which explained why I was tired all the time but not bad enough too be on medicine. So I started eating healthy and exercising. Lost about 10 lbs and went back too the doctor and she said my thyroid was normal again. But my insurance ended when I was 19 so I haven't been back to the doctor since. But I'm about 100% certain I have a low thyroid again. Biggest thing is bad puffy under eye bags and I'm extremely tired and unmotivated about 99% of the time. I hate this :/

I was diagnosed with PCOS three years ago and Hashimoto's just this past January. I am 17 years old, 5' 3", and currently around 170 lbs. I had started losing weight on my own in October of 2012 starting from 182 lbs and by July I had almost reached my goal weight of 150 lbs, but I didn't ever make it because my depression started relapsing and I suddenly started gaining weight rapidly. I eat very healthy (organic foods only; I am allergic to most preservatives) and exercise outside for at least an hour every day, so I was really confused as to why I can't lose weight (it was also extremely hard to begin with, so feeling my pants getting tighter every week is the most discouraging thing ever.) By October I had gone to see my endocrinologist about my unexplained weight gain and after taking a blood test they found that I have Hashimoto's. I have pretty much all of the symptoms listed up there except for irregular periods. Akso, even though I have PCOS, I don't have any insulin resistance nor am I at risk for any serious illnesses like diabetes. I was prescribed Synthroid and am currently on 75 mgs. I was on 50 mgs before, and until my dose was increased I felt extremely lethargic, cold, and weak all of the time. I have almost as much energy as I used to so I'm back to regular exercise, but I can't seem to lose weight at all!
I'm very frustrated because I don't know where to start again; what I did last time no longer works for me. My exercise is mainly reserved to walking since I have complications with my breathing, elliptical at the gym, and more recently, swimming. The only change in my diet is that I ended up developing an addiction to chocolate that I am currently trying to break, but since I started gaining weight months before I developed it I don't suspect it to be one of the main causes of my weight gain (it's not a very serious addiction either; a bar of it every two weeks or so.)
Thanks for any suggestions!
March 21, 2013
your workout seems like it is okay but how many total calories are you eating per day?
March 22, 2013
Thank you for all the info but I am a bit confused and was wondering if you could clear something up for me.
Peanuts are bad, but then Peanut Butter is good? is this right? Is there a certain kind/brand of peanut butter that is good in Vitamin E and is not considered a Goitrogen??
March 11, 2013
no if peanuts are bad then peanut butter is also bad for you if you have Hypothyroidism

I have a fairly severe hyperthyroid condition, it has been verified by my GP. The only discrepancy I have with the diagnosis and symptom calculation from the excellent article here, is that not every case of hyperthyroidism is true with cold body temperature. I have the opposite, I cannot stand the heat, I love the cold, not freezing, just cool, the heat makes me feel more bloated and very uncomfortable, sometimes my face feels like it is on fire. I have a heat intolerance.
So maybe I am the exception to the rule.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I am managing my thyroid without any medications. I see a doctor of Chinese medicine weekly and take traditional Chinese herbs in powder form. Not only are there no side effects of the herbs, but I am losing weight. My heart palpitations have stopped, I no longer suffer from dizziness, and my energy is slowly increasing. Also, my cycle has normalized and I ovulate regularly (I was also diagnosed with PCOS-although I no longer have cysts also thanks to herbs). I eat a very wholesome diet with rice, tons of vegetables, and small portions of meat. I eat a lot of nuts, usually a yogurt a day, decaffeinated tea only and water. No soda, no coffee, no junk (once a week or so maybe a small indulgence). I think this site has a lot of great recommendations! Also in terms of exercise, I live on a mountain in Taiwan, so I am always getting some exercise just taking my dog for a walk! I am hoping to step up the exercise now and lose about 30 more lbs. Good luck and feel free to write if you have questions! :) Stay positive, I know it's so so hard sometimes!
August 22, 2012
Would you email me the name and phone number of your Chinese Herbalist, please? I'd appreciate it!

I am 75 and I weighed 288 pounds. In the middle of May I started to reduce my calories to 1400 using the App My Fitness Pal. This 1400 average includes walking one mile every evening. I lost 15 pounds. Then my weight loss stopped even though I maintained the calories and walking. I have a paralyzed foot so I can not walk any faster than 2 MPH. Do you have any suggestions

I was diagnosed with having an underactive thyroid over a year ago. Have been on 50mg Levothyroxine ever since. Gradually losing little bit of weight. But now I am at the point where I want to look my best. I am 5ft6 and weigh 11 and half stones. Ideally I'd like to be around 9 and half stones, but for now 10 or 10.5 seems like a realistic goal for me. I have also been told I carry a lot of water weight and need to up my cardio.
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out and recommend an exercise regime which would help me lose weight.
July 25, 2012
I am 34 and I have hypo, and I score a 83 on the test. I am levothyroxin. I am 5'5 and I weight 220 lbs. I want to loose weight, but nothing I do is helping at all. Is there any supplements other than my thyroid meds that can help?
July 19, 2012
what have you tried in the past to lose weight?
July 22, 2012
Hi! I recently had surgery and Radiation treatment for thyroid cancer,back in February '12, cancer is all gone, thankfully! but I am on Synthroid 200mg and I take Vit D 50,000 mg ounce a week, and I have not been able to lose weight and my energy is sluggish, usually always tired, I have a very physical job ,on my feet most of the time, work 40hrs a week, and try to get plenty of rest, I eat lot's of veggies and drink only water,stay away from sweets, my doc says I am overweight and that I should have lost weight with the Synthroid. I am 44 yrs old 5'9'' and weigh 219 lbs, I just started doing your awesome work out plans, but i wanted to know if there is any other supplements I should be taking to help with my lack of energy and swelling on my face hands and feet that I have been experiencing since my surgery.
July 07, 2012
there's not really any supplements that i know of that will help you with swelling
July 09, 2012
Hello, my name is Chriseya. I just happen to be looking for ways to lose weight do to my Hypothytroidism. I run across your post here and thought that I should leave you a comment. I noticed that you said that you still feel sluggish, tired, lack of energy, swelling in face, hands, and feet. All these are symptoms that maybe your Synthroid needs to be recalculated. Your dose sounds like it is not high enough. I say this because September 2 and 5th, 1997 I thyroidectomy of my right lymphnode. Found out I had thyroid cancer and immediately underwent a complete thyroidectomy of my left gland. They found no more cancer surrounding the left gland. Then I had to go through this Iodine diet, then a whole body scan. That is when we found out I still had cancer cells that moved down towards my throat. Then I underwent the worse treatment and that was Radiation. I say this becuase of the aftermath and the treatment at the hospital. I developed Lymphedema because the Radiation it self weakened my lymphnodes, which caused my lower lymphs to began to swell and ache a lot. Be very vigilant of your lymphs, definitely start to lose the weight and take care of your skin. Because infections can occure if you dont take care of yourself. Starting with weight loss is the key. I wish I knew that. Because since my surgeries and radiation, I doubled in size and developed lumphedema. Lymphedema is not curable but manageable. I am 32 years old, 5' 3" and 300+ pounds. It is going to be hard, but if you eat a balanced meal and exercise regularly, you can do it. But talk to your oncologist and have them check your TSH. Sounds like your levels T4 levels are off. Good Luck!!

Hi Adrian I did the thermometer test first thing in the morning the digital one under my arm and came out 97.8 degrees does that means I could be bordeline for thyroid problems?
July 05, 2012
it could be but only being tested by a doctor is the only way to be sure

I am 5 ft 2 in and weigh 220lbs. I am very scared I have type2 diabetes and hypothyroidism. I am on hormone therapy for my thyroid but I feel like I am still falling apart, my hair looks gross my body looks gross, and I am beside myself with what to do. I weighed 130lbs pre-pregnancy and everything went to hell once my son was born. I am asking or any tips or advice. I am willing to try anything.

I was recently told that I had a low thyroid. My TSH level is 7.58
I was put on synthyroid, but I started having crazy symptoms. I couldn't sleep. My heart raced & my hands & feet would swell.
I recently had a baby (almost a year ago) & am still nursing.
Can you suggest anything that would specifically help my problem? I scored a 20 on your test. The only real symptoms that I seem to have are fatigue & dry hair.
June 16, 2012
are there any alternative meds your doctor can put you on?
