    You need to understand that just taking thyroid medication or iodine without understanding what is causing the problem is typical of medical solutions used. That is called "Relieving a symptom." That gives you "MAKE BELIEVE HEALTH."

    You can do a simple test to determine how much iodine your body needs. Take some "Tincture of iodine" you get from the drug store and paint a patch on your forearm about 2" x 3" and then watch it to see when it disappears. You should be able to see it 24 hours later, but if it disappears in a few hours, you are very deficient. The longer it is visible, the less deficiency you have.

    Taking a supplement, eating lots of foods that contain iodine, like fish, etc. and periodically testing as described above will get you in a situation where your thyroid can make good hormones. There are other things that create the problem for the thyroid because it is part of the "Pituitary axis." This consists of 4 glands that all get sick together. The adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, and ovaries (if a woman) and testes (if a man) are all part of this axis. If one of the other glands becomes insufficient it affects them all, including the thyroid.

    If you take birth control pills, you need to get off that trash because it is causing many problems with your body and that includes all the glands in the pituitary axis. There are a few good supplements that will help you greatly if you find you are deficient in iodine.

    The T3 and T4 hormones consist of iodine and tyrosine amino acid. There are some nutritional deficiencies that can also play into the lack of ability to convert T4 hormones (inactive form) to the T3 hormone (active form). Rubidium is a trace element found in some foods that promote the ability of the body to make the conversions.

    DON’T take those very stupid thyroid medications that damage the body, make the thyroid deteriorate, etc. Take care of this problem naturally, not with drugs.

    Also, avoid ALL SOY foods and anything that has fluoride in it, even toothpastes. Fluoride depletes the body of iodine. SOY depletes the body of it’s minerals, contains goitrogens that slow the thyroid down. Drug companies tell you not to eat SOY because it destroys the ability of the medications to work; it’s that bad.

    good luck to you

    You can try needles (acupuncture) to cure your thyroid.
    It’s free, safe and effective way to be healthy.
    Poor, poor people… They are always ready to spend thousands of dollars for medications from pharmaseutical companies that only hide disease’s symptoms for a short time, and they don’t want to get one of the most effective treatment for free because they don’t believe in acupuncture. So, continue to trust pharmaceutical companies which main goal is to get more money from you, but not to help you to be healthy. It’s a great pity to see this …

    My aunt is also suffered from thyroid problem. She’s feeling tired and weak. She gained weight and even experienced losing hair.
    Doctors advised to eat food rich in iodine because lack of iodine interferes with the efficient function of the thyroid gland and leads to hypothyroidism, or under-active thyroid.

    You have to make sure whether your thyroid is over active or under active. Simply put – kelp is a sea vegetable with iodine in it that may help. Make sure which condition you have and then visit your health food store – there are some very specific remedies for thyroid problems. However, if your condition is severe you might have to opt for the prescription. Eat healthy!

    A kelp tablet (rich in iodine) every day would probably help.
