Thyroid Health and Nutrition: Foods That Support Thyroid Function

by True Elements 11 Jul 2023

Thyroid is an Autoimmune response which means your body is attacking your thyroid as if it is a foreign presence. It inflames the gland and destroys it over time reducing the thyroid function bit by bit. Thyroid has begun to reveal itself as an epidemic. As per studies, when a person comes in contact with the Epstein-Barr virus its goal is to advance from the bloodstream to the lymph nodes to organs such as the liver to the thyroid and ultimately to the central nervous system. The virus hides in the body and waits to trigger when the individual is experiencing physical or emotional disturbances. This could be the presence of excess mercury in the body, B12 or zinc deficiency, mould growing in the area of either home or office, loss of a loved one, betrayals, financial strain, insomnia are a few.
