Is this the best amino acid for your thyroid?
Should you take the supplement l-tyrosine if you have a hypothyroidism? Many thyroid patients benefit from taking it because it’s required by the body to produce thyroid hormones. The idea is that by taking it, you can boost thyroid hormone production. This may be why so many thyroid patients report feeling better when they do. But be cautious when taking it because it can be stimulating to the body due to its actions on adrenal hormones. For this reason, it’s often best to start with a low dose

How Much Weight Will Hashimoto's Make You Gain?
The short answer: 5-15 pounds. The longer answer: Up to 50 pounds or more if depending on certain risk factors.

Thyroid patients: try this for better skin
Thyroid problems cause skin issues all of the time but there are two things you can do to help solve this problem: #1. Take collagen peptides. The low thyroid state accelerates collagen decline and research has shown that taking collagen supplements can improve the quality and texture of your skin in as little as 30 days. #2. Take silicon as MMST. Silicon is needed by the body to create collagen and, because it’s found in plants, most people just don’t get enough of it, especially thyroid patien

The BEST Sugar Alternatives for Hashimoto's
Sugar alternatives are supposed to be safe and healthy low-calorie options that can be used in place of refined and processed sugar. Their great appeal is that they allow you to eat sweet things without gaining weight. But they don't actually work as well as you might think. Before we get into that, though, here are the best natural sugar alternatives for patients with Hashimoto's: 1. Monk fruit 2. Allulose 3. Stevia 4. Sugar alcohols But here's why I don't recommend them: 1. They are al

Does taking NDT make Hashimoto's worse?
Some people believe that taking NDT will make Hashimoto's worse. The idea here is that because NDT (like Armour thyroid) comes form an animal source, the animal proteins found inside may interact with the immune system which is already flared up in those with autoimmune disease. This then would cause an increase in thyroid antibodies. But is this a concern? Not really, especially when you look at the numbers. There are millions of people taking NDT thyroid medications and we don't see mi

The BEST Way to Lower Cholesterol If You Have Hypothyroidism
Many patients with hypothyroidism struggle with high cholesterol due to how thyroid hormone regulates cholesterol metabolism. When thyroid hormone is low, cholesterol levels will increase. For this reason, many thyroid patients are placed on a statin to combat this high cholesterol. But is this necessary? Maybe in some situations, but definitely not all. Before you take a statin or another cholesterol-lowering medication, try these natural treatments first: 1. T3 containing thyroid med

The Benefits of Thyroid Hormone Cream
Did you know that thyroid hormone can be absorbed through the skin? When taken through the skin, it provides several benefits: 1. Thyroid hormone benefits where it is applied. This may include things like hair growth and even help with fat burning or cellulite. 2. It's easier to use. Because it isn't absorbed through the GI tract, you can take it at at any time of day without worrying about food or supplements interfering with its absorption (unlike oral thyroid medications like levothyroxi

Take Selenium If You Have Hashimoto's (Here's Why)
Selenium is a great micronutrient to take if you have Hashimoto's. Here's why: 1. It helps support thyroid function. Selenium is needed by proteins involved in the production of T3 thyroid hormone. 2. By supporting the immune system and protecting the thyroid gland from oxidative stress. Selenium supplementation has been shown in studies to help reduce thyroid antibodies. How much should you take? Some providers recommended doses as high as 400 to 500 mcg per day but I recommend dosing

Is This The BEST Form of Berberine?
Berberine is a plant-based alkaloid compound commonly used for weight loss, high blood sugar, and diabetes. While this is true, it suffers from one big problem: Low absorption. Based on animal studies, only about 1% of it actually gets absorbed. And in order to compensate for this, people are forced to take higher and higher doses which often leads to gastrointestinal symptoms. It's for this reason that dihydroberberine is so interesting. One study showed that dihydroberberine may be

What Doctors Get Wrong About NDT Thyroid Medication
Millions of prescriptions of thyroid medication will be filled this year and the vast majority of them will be for levothyroxine. Of those millions, only about 10% or so will go to a class of thyroid medication called natural desiccated thyroid. Despite being only 10% of all prescriptions, thyroid patients have a clear preference for it. Not only does it help with weight loss, but it also can help better control thyroid symptoms based on surveys of thyroid patients. There's only one probl
