WELLNESS PATH for Hypothyroidism Symptom Relief

GOALS: Stimulate your Metabolism, Healthy Food Plan, Thyroid Support

Here's a great example of a weekly or monthly path to better wellness that focuses on helping hypothyroid patients increase energy levels, improve moods and rev up weight loss.Commit to focusing on a "Well-ement" from each category, everyday for the next week, month or forever!

THE HYPOTHYROIDISM PATH


BE WELL

Replace your beverages with Water.

You should consume enough—we suggest half your body weight in ounces. So if you weigh 150lbs, drink at least 75 ounces of water per day.


MOVE

Pick something simple that can elevate your heart rate.

You need to do this to stimulate your metabolism, but you shouldn’t push yourself too hard either. Intermittent exercises that increase the heart rate are very helpful. For example, do 50 jumping jacks thrice a day.


NOURISH

Eat Smaller Meals

Five to six meals is ideal. If you go long hours between eating, it slows down your metabolism, which is the problem in hypothyroidism to begin with.


Here's a good sample diet to follow:

  • 8am: Protein smoothie (with vegan protein powder) + spinach+ strawberries

  • 11am: A handful of nuts (Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts)

  • 1pm: Boiled eggs and salad

  • 4pm: Apple with cashew butter

  • 7pm: Quinoa with cooked veggies


RELAX

Take 20 Minutes to Just Breathe

These days, we are always on the go. Multitasking and constant stimulation brings stress to our bodies. Take a moment to just breathe. It is wonderful flow of yoga asanas, breathing and meditation.





ASCEND

Change Your Diet ... but Don't Skip Carbs!

I  recommend a mostly plant-based diet with a balance of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats. Do not skip carbs completely as good carbs are essential for conversion of T4 to T3, which is the active thyroid hormone. Avoiding carbs is a common mistake people with hypothyroidism make when they are trying to lose weight—it only works against them.
