Last year I hit 40, the big four-zero, and a lot of things started to change for me. I felt my body metabolism slowing down – leading to constipation, weight gain, fatigue; my skin and hair began to lose the luster and shine it had during my 30s and emotionally I noticed myself becoming a bit sluggish, disinterested and less enthusiastic. Just as a routine check up, I got my blood tests done, and was devastated to find out that all my symptoms, which I was attributing to my age, were in fact symptoms of hypothyroidism. Without wasting any time, I started the medicines as prescribed by my Homeopath. My symptoms started improving, but my doctor also told me that to truly enhance my thyroid’s functioning, I had to change certain aspects of my life pronto. It was then that I realized that the extra effort needs to come from ME if I wanted to go back to my old (or younger) self.
Modifying My Diet
Constipation was uppermost on my mind because it was my most distressing complaint. And the biggest fighter of constipation is FIBRE. I ditched the chips, biscuits and junk foods and started snacking on salads, beans, and fruits instead
As far as vegetables were concerned, I had to avoid cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and kale as they can block the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine, which is essential for normal thyroid function.
also switched from sea salt to iodized salt. Iodine is the precursor for the production of thyroid hormone and hence an essential nutrient for thyroid functions.<
