Underactive Thyroid Disease Can Be Reversed By Dieting
I bet you didn’t know that underactive thyroid disease (hypothyroid) in most cases is reversible? It’s true, and the best of all is you don’t actually have to take any drugs to reverse the problem.
It is always advisable to consult your doctor before you try any alternative remedies and most of them will be open to natural methods before prescribing any drugs. If they are simply not open to these alternatives I would consider changing your doctor!
There are some common symptoms that come with hypothyroid. Some of the most common are depression, extreme weight gain, fatigue, short term memory loss, body aches and pains and skin problems (including dryness and itchiness).
A natural solution to your thyroid problem simply is your diet. Everything you need is in the local grocery or supermarket…right on your doorstep!
Just like any diet plan there are foods that will help your situation, and foods to avoid that will just make things worse. The foods you need to be eating should be high in vitamins and minerals and those that provide you with a lot of energy. This will increase your metabolism, the reverse of underactive thyroid disease, and naturally burn fat and lose weight.
You need to remember that weight loss, no matter who you are or what your situation, requires dedication. You need to stick to your chosen diet plan and exercise regular.
So what are the main types of food you should be eating? Lets take a look at 4 of the main food types:
- Coconut foods and oils
- Seaweed and herbs
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Healthy fat, such as butter, flax seeds and salmon.
One of the most important things to remember is not to reduce your carbohydrates intake by too much. Even for people without hypothyroid reducing your carbs to a silly degree, like some diet plans do, is just not healthy. For you this will create the completely opposite effect and reduce your thyroid hormone production even more than it already is. Basically this means your metabolism is going to slow down even more and you will gain weight!
Your body is very capable of healing itself if you give it a fighting chance. If your following a good diet, of the right foods and nutrition, and getting regular exercise you will naturally find the problem fixing itself.
Can you imagine how you will feel a few days from starting on your new diet? You will feel much better in yourself, you will probably sleep better and be a lot more restful. Surely you will no longer feel depressed when you see results. This is possible when you have the right information.
The main hurdle you face to begin with is selecting the right diet plan. There are so many options available online it’s hard to chose. You need to be sure your spending your hard earned money on something that is going to work.
If you wish to try some diet pills to accompany your diet I suggest only sticking to proven, pure and natural weight loss pills. One of the purest and most popular pills are based on Hoodia Gordonii. I have reviewed this kind of diet supplement here: Are Hoodia Weight Loss Pills Effective For Appetite Suppression?
Herbal diet pills work very well along side a healthy and nutritious diet plan. I found a great web page that describes in detail the best way to diet when you have underactive thyroid disease. You can read more here: http://www.The-Natural-Thyroid-Diet.com

The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss
by: Mary J. Shomon
publisher: Harper Paperbacks, published: 2004-09-01
sales rank: 7924
price: $6.32 (new), $2.64 (used)
From patient advocate Mary Shomon, author of Living Well With Hypothyroidism, here is the first book to tackle the weight factors specific to thyroid patients and detail a conventional and alternative plan for lasting weight loss.
An estimated 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with thyroid disease—most of them women—and for the majority of them, losing weight is mentioned time and time again as a primary concern and chief frustration—a challenge made more difficult due to the metabolic slowdown of a malfunctioning thyroid gland. For these thyroid patients, treatment alone doesn’t seem to resolve weight problems. Further, they may struggle with raising basic metabolism, resolving underlying nutritional deficiencies, treating depression and correcting brain chemistry imbalances, reducing stress, and combating insulin resistance.
The Thyroid Diet will identify these factors that inhibit a thyroid patient’s ability to lose weight, and offer solutions—both conventional and alternative—to help. It will discuss optimal dietary changes, including how a thyroid sufferer should focus on a low-glycemic, high-fibre, low-calorie diet, eaten as smaller, more frequent meals to balance blood sugar. The Thyroid Diet addresses the use of various herbs, nutritional supplements, and prescription weight loss drugs, outlining the necessity of exercise, and drawing together all information into an integrated diet and exercise plan. It contains several different eating plans, food lists, and a set of delicious and healthy gourmet recipes. With handy worksheets to use in weight loss tracking, and a special resource section featuring websites, books, and support groups, here is vital help for the millions of thyroid patients dealing with weight problems.
Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients’ needs. She will be receiving similar blurbs for this new book. There are no other books on controlling your weight problems if you have a thyroid condition, yet over 40% of overweight people have evidence of a thyroid condition, and the weight loss problems facing them are unique and need a specific approach.
