How can I control my thyroid normally?

How can I control my thyroid normally?

The thyroid gland, a butterfly-shaped organ in your neck, plays a critical role in regulating your metabolism, energy levels, and overall health. When your thyroid function isn't optimal, it can lead to a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, and mood swings.

There are two main types of thyroid dysfunction:

  • Hypothyroidism: An underactive thyroid that doesn't produce enough hormones.
  • Hyperthyroidism: An overactive thyroid that produces too much hormone.

While medication is often the primary treatment for both conditions, there are several natural strategies that can support healthy thyroid function and potentially alleviate symptoms. However, it's important to remember that these are complementary approaches and may not be a substitute for medical treatment. Always consult your doctor before making any significant changes to your lifestyle or diet, especially if you're already taking medication.

Here are some natural ways to potentially control your thyroid function:


  • Eat a balanced diet: Focus on whole, unprocessed foods rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. These foods provide essential nutrients your body needs to function optimally, including your thyroid.
  • Iodine: Iodine is crucial for thyroid hormone production. Include iodized salt in moderation and consider iodine-rich foods like fish (cod, tuna, salmon), seaweed, dairy products, and eggs.
  • Selenium: This mineral plays a role in thyroid hormone metabolism. Include Brazil nuts, seafood, whole grains, and eggs in your diet.
  • Limit processed foods and sugar: Processed foods and excessive sugar intake can contribute to inflammation, which may worsen thyroid symptoms.
  • Cruciferous vegetables: While essential for overall health, goitrogenic vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage can interfere with thyroid function in some individuals, especially those with a history of iodine deficiency. Consider steaming them to minimize the effect.
  • Gluten: Studies suggest a link between gluten sensitivity and thyroid issues. If you suspect gluten sensitivity, consider a gluten-free diet under a doctor's guidance.


  • Stress management: Chronic stress can disrupt thyroid function. Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing can help manage stress and potentially improve thyroid health.
  • Exercise: Regular physical activity can improve overall health and may positively impact thyroid function. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
  • Sleep: Getting enough quality sleep is vital for overall health, including thyroid function. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
  • Reduce environmental toxins: Exposure to environmental toxins like heavy metals and certain chemicals can disrupt hormone balance. Use natural cleaning products, avoid processed foods with BPA, and consider air purifying plants in your home.
