How to overcome thyroid issues
To overcome thyroid issues we need to know what the symptoms are of those issues and what the causes are of those issues. Most people think that when you have to do with those issues that you can’t be cured of those issues. They condemned themselves for life by taking medicines, permanently. Most of the time they try to rebalance their thyroid with some drugs.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that’s located in the throat, right below one’s Adam’s apple. The thyroid makes and stores the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 and it releases them into the blood. T4 is the abbreviation of Thyroxine, an iodine-containing hormone which affects almost every process in the body, including body temperature, our metabolism, our heart rate, and growth and development by children.
The thyroid gland works together with our pituitary gland and hypothalamus to control the amount of the thyroid hormone in our body.
Some symptoms of thyroid issues
Before we go into the symptoms, we have to distinguish the two kinds of thyroid issues. We have to do with Hypothyroidism(slow working thyroid) and Hyperthyroidism(fast working thyroid).
Some hypothyroidism signs or symptoms are

3 Steps to heal thyroid issues
To heal our thyroid issues, we have to take the following 3 steps
- repair your leaky gut
- support your adrenals
- rebalance your thyroid
How to repair your leaky gut
Your gut is home to a great deal of your digestive system, nervous system, and immune system. Your digestive tract can be affected by processed foods, stress, medications, and bacteria and they can cause chronic irritations. Chronic irritations can lead to inflammation and, eventually, to a lot of leaks in the lining of your intestinal wall. When this happens, a lot of unwanted stuff can go into your bloodstream and it can cause disturbance to your hormone levels in your blood e.g. T4 and T3.
So, you must repair your leaky gut if you want to heal your thyroid. The first thing that you must do is to stop eating gluten and other inflammatory foods that are causing trouble. Things that you can do are:
- get off all processed food
- get off all sugar
- get off all cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower etc.
- eat sea vegetables twice a week because they contain iodine which supports the thyroid
- eat grass-fed butter
You need to increase your intake of fermentable fibres from vegetables because these fibres are what feed the good bacteria in your gut.
How to support your adrenals
To help heal your gut, you must also reduce your stress. Stress can affect your adrenaline and that in its turn will affect your thyroid.
Things that you can do to support your adrenals through reducing stress are:
- be active with sport or play
- take care of others
- laughter therapy
- meditating in God’s word
- speaking in tongues
How to re-balance your thyroid
To re-balance your thyroid you can take some medicines but you can also go the natural way which includes right diet, stress release, and taking the right supplements.
Some supplements can be:
- Digestive enzymes to give your gut some rest
- Adaptogenic Herbs such as Ginseng, Rosemary, Aloe Vera, Moringa etc.
