The diet is one of the best ways to tackle underactive thyroid, as this issue is sometimes exacerbated by a bad diet.
It is important to eat as little processing and fatty foods as humanly possible. Stay away from junk foods that not only impair your bodily general function, but also make sure you are eating as much organic and whole grain foods as you can. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, as this has a great tendency to keep your immune system in working order and also strengthens other parts of your body.
It is also important to avoid caffeine and stimulants that increase your heart rate. The reason being, that your over active thyroid is already causing your heart rate to increase, so adding to that could have adverse affects long term. Most importantly, it is important to begin living a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise, as this will allow more oxygen to flow to your cells and allow your thyroid to not have to work as hard.
As we said before, it is mostly believed that an overactive thyroid can be caused by a problem with the immune system, such as most glands or organ malfunctions. The immune system is the first defense against just about any ailment known to the human anatomy, so keeping the immune system strong will allow your other organs to keep performing the tasks that they were designed to perform.
