    Please note that curing hypothyroidism requires a long term religious commitment for a period of at least a year. Creating this problem took years of self poisoning, so fixing it is neither quick, nor easy.

    Eliminate Soy: Soy suppresses thyroid function, imbalances hormones and has been shown to cause goiters (an enlargement of the thyroid gland) in previously healthy individuals.

    Adhere to an Alkaline Diet: This is extremely helpful when curing any chronic disease. Use our pH food chart to guide you on alkaline/acidic foods.

    Balance Estrogen Levels (Women): Excess estrogen slows down the thyroid gland. This means eliminating birth control medications, increasing the fiber in the diet, and avoiding all non-organic meats. Growth hormones in meats lead imbalance in the hormones.
    Reduce dairy intake, because milk often contains lots of estrogen; primarily because cows are milked frequently during pregnancy.
    Exercise: Without regular exercise, optimal health can never be reached. Find a physical activity that you enjoy, and do it often. We believe that exercise could half the cure time.

    L-Tyrosine: Tyrosine is a natural amino acid which helps the body produce its own thyroid hormone. This is also known to help with the depression, which usually accompanies hypothyroidism. Most naturopaths recommend 500 mg. taken 2-3 times day.

    L-Arginine: Arginine is known to stimulate the thyroid and its hormones. It also improves immune function, improves fertility, and alleviates erectile dysfunction.

    Avoid ALL SOURCES of Fluoride: As already mentioned, fluoride suppresses the thyroid, and is likely to be the leading cause of hypothyroidism. Drink spring water, avoid soft drinks, use fluoride-free toothpaste, use a shower filter, and throw away your non-stick pans.

    Eat a natural diet: To help your body to heal itself, you need to remove strains on its immune system. This means that all processed foods, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, white flour, white sugar, "table" salt, hydrogenated oils, aluminum, high fructose corn syrup, and etc. should be eliminated from the diet. Organic food is always the ideal. Do not trust marketing that reads "All Natural", because this phrase is unregulated, and thus anyone can use it for practically anything. Read the ingredients to verify.

    Iodine: The thyroid needs iodine to function properly, and lots of people now suffer from iodine deficiencies. To test yourself, place some Iodine (we use 2%) on your stomach. Make a dot the size of a silver dollar (or twice the size of a British 50p). If it disappears within 12 hours, then you are iodine deficient. Keep adding iodine in this way, until it no longer disappears in a 12-hour period. This works due to the fact that the body absorbs iodine at the rate at which it is needed. Do not use povidone-iodine and do not orally consume iodine. This is especially an important precaution for those with Hashimoto's.

    Pears: The ancient Chinese discovered that pears have a powerful tendency to balance hormones; especially in women. Try our pear juice recipe, and drink it regularly.

    Red Marine Algae: Red Marine Algae will increase your iodine intake safely.

    Zinc and Selenium: Studies indicate that severe zinc or selenium deficiencies can cause decreased thyroid hormone levels. Never take zinc on an empty stomach.

    Coconut Oil: You should buy organic, cold pressed, coconut oil from a health food store. Take around 1 teaspoon of it daily. You can also use it to cook with, but be warned that it smokes at low cooking temperatures. Unlike most modern oils, its smoke is not poisonous. Coconut oil speeds the metabolism, encourages production of the thyroid hormone, and kills candida.

    Avoid Canola Oil: Canola oil interferes with the production of thyroid hormones, amongst its many other dangers. Treat canola oil like the God-forsaken, genetically engineered, poison that it is.
    If depression due to hypothyroidism is a problem, you may wish to read our article on eliminating depression naturally: Special Investigative Report: L-tryptophan, Lactic Acid, Prozac and Naturally Treating Depression the Holistic Way

    Chronic constipation can be addressed by adding additional dietary fiber such as psyllium to your diet. You will also want to take flax seed oil, and combine it with a high-sulfur food like cottage cheese. Flax seed oil is very helpful for those suffering with chronic constipation.

    Hypothyroidism is an under-active thyroid. The thyroid gland produces hormones that help control the body's metabolism. Hypothyroidism occurs when insufficient amounts of hormones are produced. Successful treatments are available from hormonal drugs to surgery. Common symptoms of a hypothyroid include fatigue, weight gain, deepened voice, constipation, dry eyes, hair thinning and muscle and joint pain. Factors that can cause a hypothyroid can include previous hyperthyroid treatment. The onset of hypothyroid is usually gradual.
    Few treatments to cure a Hypothyroid are:
    • The primary treatment for hypothyroid is hormone replacement drugs. Hormone replacement drugs come in the form of tablets. The treatment can take up to 6 months to be brought under control and during that time your blood levels will be monitored. This treatment is a lifelong treatment.
    • Supplements can be an alternative for a hypothyroid condition. In mild cases of hypothyroid, adding nutrients to your diet such as iodine, selenium, Vitamin A, and L-tyrosine can help. You should only take these alternatives under supervision from your physician.
    • Foods such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower can impair the uptake of iodine into the thyroid and affect the thyroid function.
    • Homeopathic treatment for hypothyroid, combined with prescription drugs, has been shown to be successful.
    • Acupuncture treatments can be used to relieve the symptoms of aches and pains associated with a hypothyroid condition.
    • Surgery is another option for hypothyroidism.
