How To Cure Hypothyroidism Naturally

Written by Print  E-mail

Woman Suffering with HypothyroidismHypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland has been weakened by poor nutrition, thyroid toxicity, bad lifestyle, stress, and too much medical 'help'. A victim of hypothyroidism has a body that can no longer adequately produce vital hormones. The establishment considers it to be yet another "autoimmune disease"; unilaterally rejecting all legitimate causative factors. The immune system only attacks things which it detects as being toxic.

The thyroid gland is suppressed by our constant intake of soy; an ingredient in the great majority of processed foods, and even in most of the so-called healthy alternatives. Additionally, fluoride is extremely damaging to the thyroid. Until the 1970's, doctors prescribed fluoride to patients with hyperthyroidism (an over-active thyroid), in order to cripple it. It was shown to be effective at 2 mg. per day. People in the present are estimated to be consuming 2-10 mg. per day from tap water, non-stick cookware, toothpaste, pharmaceuticals, infant formula, processed cereals, and sodas. Hypothyroidism is also recognized to be caused by certain medications, such as lithium.

All S.S.R.I. anti-depressant drugs feature fluoride as a main ingredient, so these psychiatric drugs dramatically contribute to thyroid disorders, and they are the primary cause of hypothyroidism in some cases. S.S.R.I. drugs are notorious for causing nutritional deficiencies, due to their overall toxicity and because they dramatically disrupt the serotonin that is used for digestion. Contrary to the dishonest drug company marketing, only 10% of an individual's serotonin is used by his brain, while about 80% of it is used by his digestive system. Without the proper nutrients, hypothyroidism cannot be cured, because those nutrients are needed to balance the hormones and to strengthen the thyroid. S.S.R.I. drugs furthermore reduce usable calcium in the body, and thereby it renders magnesium unusable; since magnesium and calcium are interdependent. Magnesium deficiencies are rife in modern society because people do not eat enough green leafy vegetables. A severe magnesium deficiency can lead to sudden heart attacks, and lesser deficiencies may cause heart attacks when monosodium glutamate (MSG) is consumed. People who have hypothyroidism are much more likely to have heart problems, because the hormones that are produced by a healthy thyroid help to strengthen heart contractions and regulate heart rhythm.


Symptoms of Hypothyroidism
• Mood swings
• Cold sensitivity
• Weight gain
• Depression
• Heavy or irregular
menstrual periods
• Constipation
• Fatigue
• Dry skin
• Brittle hair, skin,
or fingernails
• Hair loss

The medical establishment prescribes synthetic hormone pills to hypothyroidism patients, and patients must continue taking them for the rest of their lives. This is because these artificial hormones cause a body to stop producing its own thyroid hormones permanently; similar to what is experienced with diabetics taking synthetic insulin. In both cases, the result is perpetual customers who will forever after be reliant on 'the system', because the medications actually destroy the organ that they supposedly help. Be forewarned that with orthodox therapies, there is no cure, and there may be no turning back.

The medical establishment's tests for hypothyroidism are unreliable, so multiple consecutive tests may produce differing results. As a result, some people are drugged for the rest of their lives for a disease that they did not have until they began the drug regimen. Those who are given the pharmaceutical hormones develop hypothyroidism that is more difficult to cure than those who did nothing at all, or those who turned to the alternatives immediately.

"Dessicated natural thyroid does not have FDA approval and its availability became quite limited in 2009. Many consumers complained to the ombudsman because of their preference for dessicated natural thyroid as thyroid replacement medication over the FDA approved synthetic versions"

-- F.D.A.

In the 1890's, the original conventional medicine (what is now alternative) began using all-natural hormones to treat hypothyroidism. These natural hormones were extracted from animal sources. In 1958, the chemical industry first began producing the completely synthetic versions of the hormones, which were marketed as being identical to the natural hormones that had been used for decades. Soon thereafter, the F.D.A. began playing a political game to suppress the use of the significantly safer, animal-based hormones for no other reason than increasing industry profits. Behind its corrupt shenanigans was the fact that chemical formulations can be patented, but natural hormones cannot. It avoided a political backlash by not officially banning the natural hormones, but it nevertheless accomplished the same goal by re-categorizing natural hormone treatments as "not approved" therapies. Thus, a doctor risks his medical license, and increases his lawsuit risk, if he prescribes the natural hormones. It is another example of the F.D.A. eliminating competition for its top pharmaceutical partners using cunning methods. Treating hyperthyroidism has become much more expensive and much more dangerous as a result. The new synthetic hormones are addictive to the extreme, as only chemistry can provide. It follows the same addictive pattern seen with cholesterol medications, hypertension medications, diabetes medications, cancer treatments, anti-depressants, and pharmaceutical record-holders like Heroin (from Bayer). The chemical industry's synthetic hormones cause both heart disease and cancers, but they help to cover a doctor's assets.

How To Cure Hypothyroidism

In alternative medicine, there is very little difference in the curing of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This is because the treatments involve assisting the thyroid to heal, in either case. Those with hyperthyroidism should not use iodine, because it could overdrive the thyroid, worsening the condition.

Curing thyroid disease requires a long-term commitment for a period of at least a year. Creating this problem took years of self-poisoning, so fixing it is neither quick, nor easy. Hypothyroidism medications are addictive, and the body becomes reliant on them, which is why the mainstream establishment maintains that people must take them forever. Those who have been taking hypothyroidism medications for years must slowly wean themselves from the drugs. Abruptly stopping these medications will result in extreme fatigue and additional thyroid problems.

Treatment Recommendations

  • Eliminate and discard all non-stick cookware
  • Eliminate Soy - Soy suppresses thyroid functions, imbalances hormones, and it has been shown to cause goiters (an enlargement of the thyroid gland) in previously healthy individuals, which shows that it disrupts iodine usage.
  • Adhere to an Alkaline Diet - This is extremely helpful when curing any chronic disease. Reference the Body pH and Disease article to guide you.
  • Balance Estrogen Levels (Women) - Excess estrogen slows down the thyroid gland. This means eliminating birth control medications, increasing the fiber in the diet, and avoiding all non-organic meats. Growth hormones in meats lead to imbalanced hormones. Reduce dairy intake, because milk often contains lots of estrogen.
  • Exercise - Find a physical activity that is fun, and do it often. We believe that exercise could half the cure time in some cases, and curing is not possible without it.
  • Hemp Fiber - This is a broad-spectrum supplement and a mild laxative.
  • L-Tyrosine - Tyrosine is a natural amino acid which helps the body produce its own thyroid hormone. This is also known to help with the depressions that usually accompany hypothyroidism. Most naturopaths recommend that 500 mg. be taken 2-3 times daily.
  • L-Arginine - Arginine is known to stimulate the thyroid and its hormones. It also improves immune function, improves fertility, and alleviates erectile dysfunction.
  • Iodine - The thyroid needs iodine to function properly, and lots of people now suffer from iodine deficiencies. To test yourself, place some iodine (we use 2%) on your stomach. Make a dot the size of a silver dollar (or twice the size of a British 50p). If it disappears within 12 hours, then you are iodine deficient. Keep adding iodine in increasing amounts, until it no longer disappears in a 12-hour period. This works due to the fact that the body transdermally absorbs iodine at the rate at which it is needed. Do not use povidone iodine and do not orally consume iodine. This is especially an important precaution for those with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Check the link for other options and considerations concerning safe iodine supplementation. Red marine algae is the only means to safely orally supplement with iodine, but beware of other types of underwater vegetation. Baked fish is the safest and most natural way to consume iodine, but beware of bottom feeders, shell fish, krill, and etc. Think kosher in regard to the choice of fish.
  • Avoid all sources of fluoride - As already mentioned, fluoride suppresses the thyroid, and is likely to be the leading cause of hypothyroidism. Drink spring water, avoid soft drinks, use fluoride-free toothpaste, use a shower filter, and throw away non-stick cookware. Both coffee and tea naturally contain fluoride, so use iodine to compensate if these drinks are indispensable.
  • Eat a natural diet - To help the body to heal itself, remove burdens on its immune system. This means that all processed foods, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, white flour, white sugar, table salt, hydrogenated oils, aluminum, high fructose corn syrup, and etcetera should be eliminated from the diet. Organic food is the ideal. Do not trust marketing that reads "All Natural", because this phrase is intentionally unregulated, so that anyone may use it for anything. Read labels carefully.
  • Chlorophyll - Supplementing with chlorophyll provides essential copper, helps oxygenate the body, builds healthy red blood cells, and it overall assists with skin health. Chlorophyll is a safe method of orally supplementing with copper. Those who are using our Colloidal Copper Lotion are unlikely to need more copper.
  • Pears and Apples - The ancient Chinese discovered that pears have a powerful tendency to balance hormones; especially in women. Pears help most when mixed with or juiced with apples. Try our pear juice recipe, and drink it regularly.
  • Zinc and Selenium: Studies indicate that severe zinc or selenium deficiencies can cause decreased thyroid hormone levels. Never take zinc on an empty stomach. Brazil nuts are high in both zinc and selenium.
  • Coconut Oil: Buy organic, cold-pressed, coconut oil from a health food store. Take around 1 teaspoon of it daily. You can also use it to cook with, but be warned that it smokes at low cooking temperatures, so it should only be used for low-heat cooking. Coconut oil speeds the metabolism, encourages production of the thyroid hormone, and kills candida yeast.
  • Avoid Canola Oil: Canola oil interferes with the production of thyroid hormones, amongst its many other dangers. Treat canola oil like the abominable, genetically engineered, poison that it is.

Additional Notes

If depression becomes a serious problem, then sufferers may wish to read our article about eliminating depression naturally. Chronic constipation can be addressed by adding additional dietary fiber to the diet, such as psyllium or the superior hemp fiber. Sufferers will also want to take flax seed oil, and combine it with a food containing sulfur proteins; for example, yogurt. This follows the Budwig Protocol's methodology, which decreases inflammation, increase oxygen intake, stimulates beneficial intestinal flora, and it provides a mild laxative effect.

Heavy metals and toxins can cause the thyroid to malfunction. This is particularly true in cases of Hashimoto's Disease, wherein the thyroid is so poisoned that the immune system begins attacking it. Most people with thyroid disease will benefit from a heavy metal and liver cleanse, because thyroid impairment is generally the result of toxicity.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

There is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet regarding the application of iodine to treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis, so it is prudent that we comment. Dosage is especially important in these cases, as an overdose of iodine can cause the thyroid to shut down completely. However, a small amount of iodine does help this condition. Problems usually occur for those who take potassium iodide supplements, and those who take internal iodine drops. However, there is no evidence of adverse effects for those who moderately apply iodine transdermally. Applying iodine to the skin allows the body to regulate the iodine's absorption rate.

  • Anonymous  - Hyperthyroidism

    Info from many holistic sites out there states:
    "Lithium Aspartate is commonly used in the natural treatment of hyperthyroidism and other thyroid diseases because it helps in the spreading of iodine evenly throughout the body. Lithium Aspartate may also effect the important brain chemical and increase their "concentration." This is different from Lithium Carbonate, which can be toxic and is used by conventional psychiatrists to 'treat' bipolar disorder.

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    The fact that we never recommend substances such as lithium aspartate is one of the things that separates us from the other sites out there; for we do enormous amounts of research to ensure that we 'first do no harm'.

    Lithium Aspartate is sometimes used for the treatment of hyperthyroidism (over-active thyroid), because like fluoride, it attacks the thyroid. The unverified contention that it helps to spread iodine throughout the body seems to be an attempt to explain how it works. This also assumes that having iodine spread uniformly throughout the body is actually a good thing, instead of it concentrating in the thyroid and ovaries, as it normally does. These fraudulent claims are made because it wouldn't sound as good if the supplement companies had to explain that their product was crippling a vital organ, and could therefore lead to long term consequences. There is certainly nothing holistic about any of this. It is much more like pharmaceutical-based medicine, in fact.

    While lithium occurs in trace amounts in soil, and also inside fruits and vegetables; this is not what you are getting whenever you purchase lithium aspartate. By the time it is inside a capsule, it is far from natural. Aspartate, like glutamate, is an amino acid which is also an excitotoxin. It attacks the brain cells as soon as there is more of it than taurine in the body, and it then goes on to cause (sometimes fatal) pulse irregularities in people with magnesium deficiencies. We would never recommend supplementing with it. It is essentially supplementing with MSG or NutraSweet.

    Amster et al. (2007) reported findings from a case study involving a possible link between arsenic toxicity and the ingestion of a kelp-based supplement. The authors concluded that the arsenic-contaminated supplement was the likely cause of the neurologic, dermatologic, and gastrointestinal symptoms in their patient. Although the report has several methodologic shortcomings, the most serious flaw is the authors’ failure to recognize that the arsenic most commonly found in seaweed and seafood products is relatively nontoxic. This is in contrast to inorganic arsenic, which has well-documented acute and chronic toxicity. Amster et al. (2007) did not discuss the possibility that the arsenic measured in the kelp supplement was in the organic form, nor did they address the great variability in toxicity among arsenic compounds. These two oversights lead to the unsupported conclusion that the arsenic found in kelp is responsible for the unique set of medical conditions observed in their patient.
    Amster et al. (2007) stated that “all chemical forms of arsenic eventually produce the same toxic syndrome.” In fact, the toxicologic properties of organic arsenic compounds are very different from those of inorganic arsenic. Inorganic arsenic is significantly more toxic than pentavalent arsenic compounds, arsenosugars, and arsenobetaine [Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) 2007b]. Arsenobetaine is a common constituent of seafood and is considered nontoxic. Interestingly, the major organic arsenic compounds in most seaweed are arsenosugars, which are still much less toxic than inorganic arsenic. For example, in an in vitro cytotoxicity assay, inorganic arsenic was 50 times more toxic than the trivalent arsenosugar and > 600 times more toxic than the pentavalent arsenosugar (Andrewes et al. 2004). In a recent article on speciated arsenic in seaweed, Rose et al. (2007) confirmed that inorganic arsenic levels in most varieties of seaweed are undetectable. Thus, the assumption that organic arsenic in the supplement could cause toxicity consistent with inorganic arsenic is scientifically unsupportable.
    Although Amster et al. (2007) did not quantify an arsenic intake dose, they did use urinary arsenic levels to estimate exposure. They noted that normal levels of arsenic in urine are 50 μg/g creatinine (roughly equivalent to 50 μg As/L) and that their patient had an elevated urinary arsenic level of 85.5 μg/g creatinine. According to the Agency for Toxic Substance Registry (ATSDR 2000), normal urinary arsenic levels are 50 μg/L, but only “in the absence of recent consumption of seafood.” After seafood consumption, arsenic urinary levels can reach 1,000 μg/L (Vahter 1994). Thus, it is clear that 85.5 μg/g creatinine is not indicative of arsenic toxicity, particularly after known organic arsenic exposures. Many researchers have investigated the relationship between seafood consumption and urinary arsenic and have concluded that in order to make meaningful risk determinations through arsenic urine analysis, individuals should refrain from eating seafood (including seaweed) at least 4 days before testing (Foa et al. 1984; Kales et al. 2006).
    Moreover, the symptoms most prominent in the patient described by Amster et al. (2007)—memory loss, alopecia, and fatigue—are not characteristic of arsenic toxicity (ATSDR 2007b; National Research Council 1999). The most sensitive non-cancer end point of arsenic exposure is the appearance of skin lesions (with very specific characteristics). Even these sensitive manifestations of chronic inorganic arsenic poisoning are not observed until lifetime exposures are hundreds of micrograms of arsenic per day (Abernathy et al. 2003).
    There are several other limitations of the study by Amster et al. (2007). For example, the patient had manifestations of the conditions even before supplement use. Also, the authors did not discuss the possibility of iodine toxicity associated with the supplement ingestion. Certain comparisons the authors drew between the arsenic in the supplement and the regulatory limits are misleading. In particular, the reference to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food standard for arsenic of 2 ppm, which applies only to animals treated with veterinary drugs, is not relevant (ATSDR 2007a). FDA guidance recommends levels for seafood that are much higher. For example, the level of concern for total arsenic in crustaceans is 86 ppm, a concentration 10 times higher than the amount found in the kelp supplement (FDA 1993).
    In conclusion, Amster et al. (2007) inappropriately relied on total arsenic data to link arsenic exposure to disease. They used their findings to comment on safety in the dietary supplement industry as a whole, implying that their results indicate that heavy metal contamination in supplements is a major health concern. Although contamination in food and dietary supplements is an issue that should be examined, their article did not inform this issue, and it obscures more significant food safety concerns that are of greater public health significance.

    You can purchase red marine algae in supplement form at herbal stores. We do not know of any specific blends which include all of the above ingredients. You would have to visit a store and read the ingredients of the commercial thyroid blends. Let us know how it goes, so that we can recommend it to others in the future.

  • Martin  - Iodine and hypothyroidism

    You should really be very cautious about advocating iodine supplementation in cases of hypothyroidism. If the hypothyroid condition is related to Hashimoto's, iodine supplementation (and even excess iodine in a natural, organic diet) generally exacerbates the condition, not improves it. In such cases, it is positively dangerous to try to increase iodine levels.
    On this question, have you researched transdermal iodine application specifically in the cases of Hashimoto's? This is something that I believe is lacking in the research of people like Dr. Brownstein and Dr. Boydston. They only talk about oral ingestion.
    As far as the rest of your advice here, it corresponds to everything my wife and myself have researched. Thanks for being out there educating people.

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    Actually, we should thank you for helping to keep us true and accurate in our reporting. We'll check into the Hashimoto's thing, and update this article if it seems prudent to do so. It was off the radar.

  • phillip nicholas  - iodoral

    Hi, I am so glad I found your site and the info you present. Back in february I had an attack of atrial fibrilation and was prescribed amiodarone. Of course having researched the side effects of amiodarone I quickly tapered off it. I read the information posted by the infamous Dr Abraham and decided to take iodoral as a substitute for amiodarone. Any way I have developed the following symptoms, headache, abdominal pain, neck pain, nausea, muscle and joint pain and insomnia.I have stopped the iodoral since reading your site but wonder if I now have a hypo or hyper active thyroid. Further more I do not want to go back into AF so wondered if you had any advice.

  • Alan  - Thyroid Question

    You missed an important point here. Should a person continue taking their prescribed thyroid medication while doing this cure protocol?

  • Frank

    This article is excellent.
    Fewest articles on Hypothyroidism mention the danger of canola oil. Just the other day, eating out Japanese (w/o high glycemic white rice), i was totally knocked off for several hours immediately after consuming 'Kaizen Ceviche'.
    Turns out there was an ingredient fried in Canola Oil in there.

  • Ameera A

    i want to know whether arsenic cause hyperthyroidism.for a few months i took in an unani medicine named safi-blood purifier and now i have hyperthyroidism

  • Danielle Dunlap

    I agree with Alan. There is no mention of whether or not to discontinue taking hypothyroid meds while following your recommendations to cure hypothyroidism. Please let us know.

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)
    avatar

    In some cases, it will be necessary to slowly wean off of the medications whilst going through this regimen. Others will be able to stop immediately, depending on their thyroid state, length of medication use, and type of medication. Unfortunately, we're not able to issue a blanket recommendation on this because of all of the variables involved.

  • Toni  - Problems with Thyroid

    Thanks for your article and the vid. Do you have recipes you can offer for using the coconut oil and flax seed oil? Thanks.

  • Elizabeth  - Hypothyroidism

    Copper through foods is also required for a proper functioning thyroid. Medications and some supplements interferes with absorption of the small amount of copper the body requires. A blood test could easily assess if you are copper dificient and this should be done as copper is detrimental if overdosed.

  • Denise M  - Not aways caused by "created from a poor diet and

    In your prologue you state that hypothyroidism is "created from a poor diet and lifestyle." What do you base this on?

    What do you say to a person who has never been overweight, has exercised every day of their life, has never been a drinker or a smoker, has always eaten an organic, healthy diet with very limited meat and dairy, has always drank bottled spring water (not tap) and has never eaten soy except for an occasional bowl of edamame? I have Hashimoto's disease, as does my father and one of my sisters.

    Guess what? It is an inherited condition. I resent that you categorically and unequivocally blame the patient for getting this disorder!

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)
    avatar

    You might want to review the medications that you have taken, most particularly contraceptives and antidepressants. You might also want to look around for sources of fluoride, including toothpaste. Your ignorance on this topic doesn't prove us wrong. Your vegetarian lifestyle probably plays a role, too. There's no such thing as bad genes, but you may well owe your condition to the bad lifestyle that was adopted by your parents, and if you're looking for somebody to blame, it's them, not us.

  • Anonymous  - re:

    what is the dosage of bladderwrack for hypothyroidism?

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)
    avatar

    We now recommend red marine algae instead of bladderwrack, because it tends to be much safer and less likely to contain heavy metals and other impurities. I am going to edit my own comment above to reflect the change and avoid confusion. People rely on us to provide them with quality advice, so its important that we clear up any old or inaccurate information.

    The amount will vary among different people, but Thomas takes 375mg (one capsule) of red marine algae per day during periods of high stress and he is built like a linebacker. So, for any normal person, that should be ample. Don't overdo it. It's better to have too little than too much.

  • Laurie  - Collolidal Silver

    I was just diagnosed with Hypothyroidism yesterday. My T3,Free level was 2.7, down from 3.2 in January.

    My question is in regards to "Heavy Metals" mentioned above. What are you referring to? About a month before my last blood test, I had taken it orally for about a week. Could this have affected my T3 levels?

    Thanks!
