Like it or not, more and more of us are fighting feeling constantly fatigued. Worse
yet, most of us don't know that a few simply dietary 'tweaks' could turn the whole thing around. That's
because most of us don't even know we need to take care of our thyroid gland, let alone know how to do
If you wonder whether your fatigue results from that top
cause, check out the brief list below to see what applies to you, then use the guidelines that follow to develop a
dietary action plan.
1. Your metabolic rate - the rate at which you burn
calories is malfunctioning so that you gain weight easily or have a terrible time gaining weight);
2. The growth rate in your entire body is
off, which means your healing time is very slow;
3. The amount of oxygen you consume is out of whack, so you may feel short of
breath, or like a room is too stuffy when others are fine with it;
4. The speed of chemical reactions is slowed or speeded up, so that for
example, you digest food very slowly or far too quickly;
5. You fail to produce the amount of heat you need to keep your body
temperature comfortable, so you may be cold all the time, or run hotter than others;
6. Your autonomic (automatic) nervous system’s ability to become aroused when
necessary causes you to be slow to react when you need to, or to over-reactive to minor
7. Your ability to become calm after stimulated and aroused is lengthened - in
other words, your autonomic nervous system takes a longer time to ‘get over’
8. Your calcium doesn’t work correctly, so that you’re more likely to
suffer from stiff muscles and/or muscle cramps.
If you have any of these symptoms, the next thing to do
is review your diet to make certain you’re getting enough of the nutrients your thyroid needs, and that you’re not
getting too many of those that can depress thyroid functioning. Here are some areas to
Iodine, because your
thyroid can’t make its primary hormone, thyroxin, without it. Iodine-rich foods such as kelp and other sea
vegetables are good sources.
Selenium, because it activates
enzymes that convert thyroid hormones to their active form. Brazil nuts are an excellent source.
Iron, because if you’re low thyroid, you
may not absorb enough iron.
Enzymes, because they convert your food
into forms your body needs and help activate them.
Protein. Every part of your body needs
protein. Sources especially good for thyroid health contain the amino acids tyrosine and glutamine. Food
sources of tyrosine include almonds, avocados, bananas, dairy, fish, lima beans, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, soy.
Food sources of glutamine include kale, celery, carrots, papaya and Brussels sprouts.
Vitamin B complex, especially B12. Both
Spirulina and nutritional yeast with no added synthetic B vitamins are good food sources.
Omega-3 fatty acids – they’re central to
good thyroid function.
Limit goiterogenic’ foods – meaning those
that depress thyroid function ( they inhibit thyroid peroxidase, the enzyme that adds iodine to the thyroid hormone
molecule). The down-stream result of over-consumption is an underactive thyroid. At the top of this list are
brassicas from the genus of the mustard family, otherwise known as cruciferous vegetables. Members include
broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale. To eliminate their negative, goiterogenic
activity, either cook them or ferment them Other foods that can depress thyroid function - when consumed in large
amounts - include spinach, radishes, sweet potatoes, strawberries, pears, and peaches. The best approach here is
simply not to over consume them.
The care and feeding of your thyroid gland is one of the
most important skills you can develop, not just to beat fatigue, but to reduce frequent infections, protect your
heart, normalize your weight and a myriad of other benefits. So don't underestimate the power of adopting
these simple strategies listed above; your health depends on it.
