Thyroid Awareness Month: Edition 2
Big warm welcome!
As you may have guessed, it is THYROID AWARENESS MONTH! And if you read my last post I summarized my history of my thyroid, the stats about those who have thyroid dysfunction, and the first action step you can take today! If you want to read that post, this link will direct you straight there.
As I have promised in my last post, I will give you some natural remedies for thyroid imbalance. This is personally my favorite part once I speak with my one-on-one clients. However, these recommendations won’t have lasting results unless you consistently!
Hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s & Hyperthyroidism/Grave’s:
Foods high in selenium! According to Dr.Axe.com;
“Selenium acts as a powerful protector of the thyroid and regulates the production of reactive oxygen within the gland, and protects it from antibodies that can create thyroid disease. For these reasons, selenium benefits are also being investigated to see if they can help patients with Hashimoto’s disease, Grave’s disease, and in pregnant women with anti-TPO antibodies. Selenium may be able to increase immunity, lower autoimmune reactions, and to lower inflammation in these populations.”

Wellness Tips – MOVEMENT/FITNESS
Movement plays an enormous part in our health & longevity. That, of course, includes our thyroid function.
It hard to get through an intense cardio workout, or how about the muscle weakness when trying to lift your own body. I completely can relate to both and all of the above. The video below is a new fitness technique that can actual improve your thyroid and give you more energy.
Ever heard of HIIT? High-Intensity Interval Training? This technique is better explained by DR. DOUG McGUFF.
In this video; Dr. McGuff is demonstrating slow HIIT. By doing this type of weight training you are activating multiple muscles at the same time equaling more muscle gain and fat loss.
Alternative Technique – ESSENTIAL OILS
ATTENTION to my fellow aromatherapist or essential oil users! Here is a blend that can directly help aid your thyroid.
3 drops of FRANKINCENSE essential oil
5 drops LEMONGRASS essential oil
5 drops CLOVE essential oil
Carrier oil (Jojoba oil, coconut oil, almond oil, & etc.)
Combine all in ROLLER BOTTLE
Once all combined, apply directly to the thyroid area and rub gently.
***You can also try putting two drops of FRANKINCENSE essential oil on the roof of your mouth twice daily***
Knowing that the end of this month is coming to an end, I kinda sad about it. There is so much to learn about this amazing gland…THYROID.
