Hypothyroidism, Diet, And You
Do you think there’s a connection between hypothyroidism, diet, and you?
It’s unfortunate that physicians don’t offer many suggestions as to how-to control your hypothyroidism.
To this day, I’m still confused as to why most doctors think there’s no connection between your diet and hypothyroidism. Yet, when you’re struggling with symptoms and weight loss doctors blame your diet, hmm?
Here’s a question you should ask your doctor…”how does my body make thyroid hormone?”
If you don’t get a simple, quick, answer, run! The response should be…”the body makes thyroid hormone by concentrating iodine and tyrosine.”
The next question you should ask is…”where does my body get iodine and tyrosine?” The answer, “your diet.”
Now, your body does need additional nutrients to make thyroid hormone other than the two I mentioned. I’m just using them as an example, and they are the most important nutrients. Your body also requires copper, zinc, selenium, magnesium, manganese, vitamin A, and B vitamins to create and convert thyroid hormone.
So, if you don’t get these nutrients from your diet, where would you get them? Obviously, you can take supplements, but supplements can’t replace a poor diet.
Hypothyroidism occurs mainly because of diet and the environment. Stress also plays a role. So, if these three things can cause thyroid problems, shouldn’t they be included in the treatment?
If you know the cause of disease, the treatment should be easy to figure out. The problem with modern medicine is that there is too much focus on the treatment and not the cause, wouldn’t you agree?
So, how does diet and the environment lead to hypothyroidism or any disease? These two things lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies and toxicity of the body, which lead to symptoms then the disease.
Again, there are more complex issues with dis-ease of the body and how you can heal the body with food, but it is possible.
Now you know there is a definite connection between you, hypothyroidism, and diet.
