Thyroid problem?

Many, many people have thyroid problems. There are many things you can do to help this problem without taking prescription drugs. A big thing is to avoid soy! If underactive, you will also want to avoid raw cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, etc) If overactive, you will want to eat plenty of them. Peanuts are another to avoid. And with many other problems, take a good quality (preferably raw) multi-vitamins, and pro biotic. A b-complex is very important too. Kelp is essential for an underactive thyroid. For more information and specific dosages please refer to the book Prescription for Nutritional Healing.

  1. I like where you say to avoid soy! But what's the reasoning behind avoiding those vegetables?

  2. Raw cruciferous vegetables contain a thyroid inhibitor called goitrogens. Steaming them is fine.
