Can thyroid supplements naturally cure hypothyroidism? There’s no doubt you’ve asked this question yourself. If you can find the root-cause of hypothyroidism, you have a great chance to heal using lifestyle, food, and supplements.
Unfortunately, many who suffer from hypothyroidism often look for a silver bullet, which doesn’t exist. It’s rare to find one thyroid supplement with a single nutrient that solves the problem. This rarely happens because hypothyroidism has so many causes, and each cause has many contributing factors.
But, if you know the cause, you can go to work on fixing the problem. I truly believe you can heal naturally, but you need to find the root-cause first. If you cannot find the cause, the best therapy would include diet, supplements, and hormone replacement.
The bottom line is, you need a system – and a plan – if you’re going to be successful. Without a system, you’ll continue to have problems, or they will eventually return. This is why The Hypothyroid Diet has great success. It’s a system, not just a diet.
The solution also includes thyroid supplements because many thyroid problems include nutritional deficiencies.
Some of the most common thyroid deficiencies include selenium, iodine, magnesium, vitamin D, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, B6, B12, Vitamin A, and tyrosine.
There are many supplements that may help thyroid symptoms, including adaptogenic herbs like Ashwagandha and Rhodiola. Others include digestive aids like betaine hydrochloride and probiotics and liver support like milk thistle and calcium-d-glucarate. These supplements may help, but they focus on treating the symptoms versus the cause.
The causes could include the inability to make thyroid hormone and/or convert thyroid hormone to its active form and transport it into the cells. The cause may also be autoimmune related. Not surprisingly, most of the nutrients needed to complete these tasks are listed among the most common nutrient deficiencies.
If you are going to take thyroid supplements, this is the place to start.
This is the reason why I created Thyroid-1. It contains the nutrients, of which many are deficient, and the nutrients needed to make thyroid hormone and convert it to its active form.
Thyroid-1 is a very specific multivitamin for your thyroid. It is not a silver bullet, but using it along with The Hypothyroid Diet system is the best place to start toward healing.
Of course, you will also need guidance from your doctor to help with testing and hormonal support, if you need it.
The doctors can do their part, but you must do yours, which includes eating a nutrient-dense diet and using broad-spectrum thyroid supplements.
