The mainstay of hypothyroidism treatment remains conventional thyroid medication in most cases. These are primarily T4 supplements. The key is knowing how to make the medicine work optimally in each case.
It is why we at Jeevam Health follow a two-step process. In this approach, hormone supplementation only provides additional support. The foundation of treatment is addressing the root cause.
The first vital step in this process is making dietary changes. The treatment of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis requires the following of an elimination diet.
A mistake made by most people is that they cannot identify the unhealthy components in their regular diet. When we think of unhealthy food, we think only about junk food that is oily or deep-fried and sugar-laden carbohydrates.
Did you know that even the milk you use for your morning cup of coffee might be unhealthy for you? For some people, even the normal chapatis made of wheat can do more harm than good.
It teaches us an important lesson that a diet is not a matter of one size fits all. Irrespective of the advice you hear from others and the Internet, it cannot give you specific information about your body. For this, you need to undergo several forms of tests. These tests can assess the levels of various vital vitamins and minerals. They also detect heavy metals and toxins.
