Supporting Hypothyriodism (Part 2)
November–December 2020 • Vol 3, No 112
In addition to the foods for thyroid support that I shared with you last time, I would like to add a few others that can be helpful and then share with you some of the top nutrients your thyroid needs in order to thrive.
Seeds—Sunflower, Pumpkin, Flax, Sesame, and Chia:
These nutritional superstars contain top thyroid-supporting nutrients like selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and tyrosine. Seeds are easiest to digest if they have been soaked or sprouted. They can also be easier to digest if you freshly grind them and then add them to things like smoothies. Also note that some people are sensitive to sesame, and so for those at the beginning of a strict auto-immune protocol (AIP) diet would avoid nuts and seeds for a short time until their symptoms improve.
