Thyroid Disruption

Millions of people suffer from thyroid disruption and don’t know it. Exposure to specific environmental toxins has been shown to interfere with the production, transportation, and metabolism of thyroid hormones by a variety of mechanisms. The incidence of thyroid disease - particularly thyroid cancer and thyroid autoimmune disease - is increasing substantially. If you are tired, gaining weight, and experiencing mental cloudiness, talk to our pharmacist. Be sure that you get adequate iodine (in the best form), selenium and iron. Ask your pharmacist if your medications need to be taken with food, and if there are any interactions with other medications or supplements you may take. To optimize your thyroid function, it is recommended to eat leafy greens, nuts (cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds and Brazil nuts), and seafood.
