Thyroid Health: Discussion

There’s nothing like light to improve thyroid health.

Infrared light, in particular, is a wealth of thyroid benefits — and very few humans get infrared light in sufficient quantities.

Taking stock (and ownership) of how much infrared light you get can be an incredible step toward *much* improved thyroid health.

Sunlight is the best source, but a close second are heat lamps and traditional saunas.

Thyroid issues almost always link to gut problems.

It’s a popular idea (in some circles) to focus on improving thyroid function and then *letting that* improve gut function. 

This approach sees the thyroid as the cause of good or bad gut health.

But what if the thyroid is slowing down BECAUSE of gut health issues? 

In poor gut health, disease-causing microbes have essentially infected the gut lining (and likely the rest of the body). This causes poor nutrient deficiency, inflammation, poor hormone production, and endotoxicity throughout the body.

Therefore, if gut health is so poor, should we boost the metabolism? After all, a faster metabolism will only use up scarce nutrients at a faster rate.

Focus on gut health (and the lifestyle factors that control it), first — and explore thyroid health later, if necessary.

Poor sleep will trash your thyroid function.

If you’re dealing with thyroid issues, there’s nothing more important than going to bed early, falling asleep fast, staying asleep, and waking up early.

Even if you’re not sleeping well, it’s still important to be in bed early — to retrain your circadian rhythm.

If you’re not making sleep (and your circadian rhythm) a top-shelf priority, you are severely limiting your ability to recover.

One of the fastest ways to recover thyroid health?  Make your circadian rhythm a top-shelf priority. 

Developing an amazing circadian rhythm involves several steps: morning sunlight, daily movement, blocking blue light at night, meal timing, and more.

Thyroid health is often affected by the local environment.

Mold, EMF, chemical exposure, and unsupportive people can each make you “go hypothyroid.”  

If you’re serious about a true, powerful recovery — become aware of how your environment exposes you to anti-thyroid entities.

Don’t be afraid to cut people out of your life.  Don’t be afraid to turn off the WIFI.  Don’t be afraid to move to a home with less water damage.

To a large extent, we are products of our environments.  Our recoveries are very limited by the health of our surroundings.

The #1 “food” threat to your thyroid might be undereating.

Undereating can send your metabolism into “starvation” mode — which is a survival strategy the body uses to adapt to periods of famine.

In starvation mode, your body slows the metabolism down to preserve nutrients and energy. The body does not typically bounce back quickly from starvation mode.

The #2 “food” threat? Going low carb. Surprisingly, carbohydrates seem to be pro-thyroid foods. Removing them is known to be a precursor to hypothyroidism.

However, poor gut health often results in the inability to digest carbohydreates (and other foods, for that matter).

This is why gut health is so critical in hypothyroidism.

Nutrients are “wasted” in hypothyroidism. They’re also not absorbed well in the first place.

Nutrient deficiency is quite rampant in the chronically ill and aging.

Unfortunately, most multivitamins have serious imbalances and dosage problems.

Therefore, knowing how much of each nutrient you get is fairly important. To do so, you need to know which nutrients truly matter — which ones to monitor!

A big deficiency can be enough to hold you back for years. 

And fixing that imbalance can spring you forward into a totally new place.

Make sure your gut health is enabling you to actually absorb the nutrients you consume.

Mold is synonymous with thyroid dysfunction.

If you’re worried about your thyroid health — I highly recommend taking a long, serious look into just how much water damage your home or workplace has suffered.

NOTE: Hypothyroidism is often the result of pathogenic infection in the gut, nose, throat, ears or elsewhere. Each of these steps boosts immunity. SEE ALSO: Beat Pathogens (5 Steps To Recovery).
