To really understand each component of Living Thyroid W.E.L.L., we need to ask Four Fundamental Questions:
Component 1 ‘W’: What can I WIPE OUT from my current diet and lifestyle that is sabotaging my immune system and my thyroid?
Component 2 ‘E’: What can I EXCHANGE or ADD to my life to boost the immune system, detox the body, and help the thyroid?
Component 3 ‘L’: How can I find a LIFE BALANCE in what I’m doing so I don’t go crazy, and instead really learn to enjoy my new life?
Component 4 ‘L’: Are you truly LOVING yourself enough to learn, invest, and have patience in your journey?
Without fixing your sugar issues, your thyroid will never improve. This is because the pancreas is responsible for sugar metabolism; and similar to the thyroid, the pancreas is also part of the endocrine system.
When the good and bad bacteria in the gut get out of balance, a whole host of negative reactions can occur in the body. Undigested foods can leak through into the bloodstream, causing food allergies and intolerances, along with vitamin and mineral non-absorption, leading to deficiencies, with the bad bacteria producing a whole heap of toxins, and the immune system functioning improperly. Here are examples of traditionally fermented foods you could incorporate into your diet:
* Sauerkraut (choose properly fermented, not in vinegar)
* Kimchi (Korean fermented veggies)
* Kefir (has different bacteria than yogurt, also super beneficial)
* Vegetable medley (fermented)
* Coconut water kefir
* Ashwagandha (500 milligrams daily)
* Iodine (150–300 micrograms daily)
* Selenium (200 micrograms daily – about 6 Brazil Nuts)
* L-tyrosine (500 milligrams twice daily)
* Fish Oil (1,000 milligrams daily )
* Vitamin B-Complex (one B-complex capsule daily)
* Proteolytic [Digestive] Enzymes
If hormones and thyroid levels are totally off, you need to give your body a break and concentrate more on low impact exercises like walking, yoga, swimming, Pilates, or light cycling.
However, as levels normalize, any and all types of exercises are ok BUT, it needs to be 30 minutes or less. Weight training will build more muscle to increase a sluggish metabolism.
No one diet or lifestyle plan works for everybody, as each person has a unique way of healing. There is a saying: “One person’s food is another’s poison.” It’s always worth remembering that just because one diet worked for one person, it does not mean it will work for you, too. One person could have healed their thyroid by just changing their water filters and eliminating fluoride, while another needs to implement have major diet and lifestyle changes to start feeling just a little better. Let’s respect our differences.
Love yourself enough to take the time to learn what’s best for your body. Invest in the necessary resources. Most importantly, have patience because as we evolve through various life events, our bodies will change too. So, have the mindset that you are on lifelong journey of healing.
