Thyroid health?

I have read that iodine is good for maintaining a healthy thyroid but I have had an allergic reaction to iodine about three year ago. Of course, eating well and having some kind of exercise is essential for overall health but I just want to know if there is anything else I can or should be doing to take care of my thyroid. Any helpful info?

    For the most part all that you need to do is eat a healthy diet. Selenium rich foods are recommended to support thyroid health – wheat germ, seafood and shellfish, beef liver and kidney, eggs, sunflower and sesame seeds, brazil nuts, mushrooms, garlic, onions, and kelp. Avoid iodine blocking foods such as soy (including tofu and soymilk), and raw forms of the following vegetables: turnips, mustard greens, broccoli, cabbage, rutabaga, brussels sprouts, bok choy, cress, cauliflower, kale, and kohlrabi. Cooking these vegetables deactivates the iodine-blocking agent. Supplement with zinc and other nutrients. Best of luck.
