To start your integrative approach to Hypothyroidism:
Avoid certain types of foods in large quantities. These include the following:
Cabbage, turnips, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and bok choy. Other substances like peaches, pine nuts, strawberries and spinach may stimulate goiters. Their effects are by inhibition of the uptake of iodine by the thyroid gland. One can preserve the nutritional value of those vegetables by steaming or cooking them.
Using a heart healthy, Mediterranean diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature is key. Using such an anti-inflammatory diet reduces auto-immune inflammation along with cardiac risk prevention.
Performing routine daily exercise is necessary to maintain weight, increase bone density, to elevate mood and modify cardiac risk factors
