Thyroid Function: Start with These 3 Things to Boost
Jan 3, 2017
Do you need to boost thyroid function through food and lifestyle? Do you have hypothyroidism (low thyroid or under-functioning thyroid) and wondering what else to do aside from medications? Do you take medications and feel no improvement in your thyroid function?
In this post, I share a video on three things you can start with to boost your thyroid function.
Symptoms of Low Thyroid Function:
Before we get started, it’s important to know the symptoms of low thyroid function. Many people are walking around, feeling miserable from under-fuctioning thyroid, without real answers or a clear map to get them back on the right track. Many of them have been told by their doctor’s that they are fine when they aren’t.
Fatigue, tired, sluggish
Weight gain despite eating a low-calorie diet
Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses
Need for excessive hours of sleep to function well
Constipation or difficult bowel movements
Hypersensitivity to cold weather
Poor circulation and numbness in hands and feet
Cold hands and feet/feeling cold all over
Low auxiliary body temperature, less than 98.6 first thing in the morning (may also be caused by any hormonal imbalance)
Muscle cramps while at rest
Increased susceptibility to colds and other viral or bacterial infections and difficulty recovering from them
Slow wound healing
Chronic digestive problems, such as lack of stomach acid (hypochlorhydria)
Itchy, dry skin
Dry or brittle hair
Hair falls out easily (scalp, face, or genitals)
Loss of outmost portion of the eyebrow
Swelling, especially facial (myxedema)

To be clear, you need more than 3 things to boost your thyroid function through food and lifestyle. Since most of us get overwhelmed very easily, I picked the top and first 3 things to do to address thyroid function.
Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.
Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!
A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
