Affiliate Disclosures

 

Many of the links on ChaseitStraight.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you. As I endeavor to grow ChaseitStraight.com, the associated costs increase with running, maintaining and marketing it, and these links are a way I help offset these costs.

Christina/ChaseitStraight.com is a participant in the Amazon Service LLC Associates Program; which is an affiliate advertising program designed to also provide an avenue for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Not all links are associated with an affiliate program involving commission. Many of the smaller companies do not offer such programs, but offer products and services that I personally use and pay for. I am passionate about these companies and their offerings, and that is why I recommend them. If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something I personally use, support and would recommend, and many I do recommend without an affiliate link.

Unless otherwise noted, all reviews are of items or services I have purchased myself and I am not paid or compensated in any way. This is my personal standard: I want to make sure that all reviews and recommendations on this site are unbiased, and products and services that I refer to, I love enough to purchase and use myself.

The following are companies I have an affiliate relationship with:

Thyroid! What do I Eat?

January 15, 2019

 

 

So many Americans have thyroid challenges and are not even aware that they have them. They are tired, sluggish, not sleeping well, gaining weight, losing hair and are cold frequently. These of symptoms of hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a slow or sluggish thyroid, while hyperthyroidism is a fast functioning thyroid. neither one is good, you want it to be balanced. The question I receive the most is, what should I eat if this is a problem? Let's check it out!

 

 

Dr. Mark Hyman has a Thyroid Solution video that is a great resource. I purchased a Thyroid Solution Paper for my doctor several years ago, and that is the basis for this article.

 

Let's break down the foods based on the minerals, vitamins and nutrients needed.

 

 

Iodine rich foods:

 

  1. hijiki

  2. wakame

  3. arame

  4. dulse

  5. nori

  6. kombu

  7. seaweed

  8. Iodine drops

 

 

Omega 3- fats:

 

  1. walnuts

  2. flaxseed

  3. sea vegetables

  4. sardines

  5. wild salmon

 

 

 

Vitamin D:

 

  1. mackerel

  2. sardines

  3. herring

  4. Sun exposure

 

 

 

Selenium

 

 

  1. Smelt

  2. smoked herring

  3. scallops

  4. Brazil nuts

 

 

Zinc

 

  1. oysters

  2. oatmeal

  3. chicken

  4. liver

  5. spinach

  6. nuts

  7. pumpkin seeds

 

 

 

Vitamin B

 

  1. whole grains

  2. liver

  3. green leafy vegetables

 

 

Vitamin A

 

 

  1. Dandelion greens

 

 

This is great way to take certain items and put them in your daily meal rotation. I do this. For a simpler formula here is what you should and should not do!

 

 

Eat only whole, unprocessed, real foods

 

  • Eat mostly plant foods -- vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and beans

  • Eat small amounts of lean animal protein – sardines, wild salmon, lean poultry

  • For your thyroid add special foods like sardines, scallops, Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, seaweed like hijiki, wakame, arame, dulse, nori, and kombu, dandelion greens, and other green leafy vegetables.

 

 

 

Eliminate all edibles that are NOT real food

 

 

  • That means processed foods; junk foods; artificial sweeteners; trans fats; anything in a box, package, or

  • can; and anything with ingredients you don’t recognize or can’t pronounce.

  • It means eating ONLY whole foods – not derivatives of real whole food like refined sugars and flours or sweetened drinks.

  • It also means taking a 4-week break from uppers and downers – stimulants and sedatives – like caffeine

  • and alcohol (and obviously nicotine)

  • And it means eliminating all the foods that many of us have developed allergies to – foods that can interfere

  • with thyroid function by creating inflammation – such as gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, yeast, citrus and nightshades.

 

 

I personally do this and supplement, because we can't get everything through diet alone, especially if you have an imbalance or deficiency.

 

PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN BEFORE TAKING ANY MEDICINE OR CHANGING YOUR MEDICAL REGIMEN

 

 

I use these supplements with the permission of my physician and naturopathic doctor. These are great options that are natural and not conventional medicine.

 

Thyrogold

 

Triple Action Thyroid

 

Vita Logic Thyroid Formula

 

 

 

I hope this information helps.

Happy New Year!!

I am with you and in your corner.

 

Christina :)
