If you have Hashimoto’s, the foods you eat can have a major impact on how well your thyroid functions, either by impacting your thyroid hormones themselves, or your immune system.
Because remember, Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune condition, meaning your immune system is overstressed and attacking your thyroid. By supporting your immune system, you can stop its attack on your thyroid and reverse your condition.
It’s important to note that every body is different. Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s are complex. While different approaches are required for each patient, there are some general principles that will benefit the thyroid and immune system of most patients. Of course, reducing inflammation is one of these principles. This Thyroid Anti-inflammatory Tonic can help!!!
Years ago, after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s autoimmune hypothyroid disease, I decided to change my diet completely. I eliminated all gluten, dairy, processed foods and grains. I started taking supplements like turmeric and maca, and it helped greatly in my healing process. I started drinking this healing tonic daily. My energy increased, my immune function improved, and my thyroid medication dose went down.
Why Take This Thyroid Tonic Daily
Excess inflammation is always present in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis , and intestinal permeability has been found as a common factor in every case of autoimmunity. In some cases, people with Hashimoto’s may also have heavy metal toxicity.
Curcumin, the most studied active ingredient in turmeric, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral activity, all of which can provide benefits to those suffering from Hashimoto’s-related symptoms.
Turmeric can be helpful in reducing whole body inflammation, healing the gut, as well as detoxifying from heavy metals in those with autoimmunity and Hashimoto’s.. Turmeric powder like this one, with the right co-factors, are more reliable.
Maca is an adaptogenic root native to South America. Studies have found that maca can regulate hormonal fluctuations in women, and provide energy-promoting effects.
Reishi contains immune-modulating properties, which means that they may help to promote the production of immune cells to prevent disease.
