1. Proper nutrition
Diet is the best way to get your hormones in check. It’s important to reduce your intake of sugar, processed foods, inflammatory foods and refined flours.
It may also be beneficial for you to increase your intake of iodine, zinc, omega-3 fats, and selenium, according to the type of disease you’re suffering from.
Exercise helps regulate your metabolism and keeping your thyroid regular. Staying fit will also improve hormonal imbalance to prevent and treat the disease.
3. Stress management
Stress contributes to inflammation and adrenal exhaustion, which can lead to hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
Try to practice relaxing activities like meditation, yoga, walks in nature or breathing exercises to melt away tension and improve hormonal health.
4. Heat therapy
Taking hot baths and spending time in the sauna helps to detoxify your body and release toxins form the thyroid.
This also relaxes muscles and relieves inflammation.
5. Nutritional supplements
Consult your doctor, nutritionist or naturopath before self-treating with supplements. You may find that taking calcium, sodium and vitamin D will help treat the symptoms and help you manage your condition (10).
