1. Goitrogen Rich Food
Goitrogen is a naturally occurring substance in some of the food, Goitrogen creates the problem to the thyroid gland in producing thyroid hormone by blocking the Iodine. As we well know that iodine is one of the essential minerals for our body and the thyroid gland needs iodine to make thyroid hormone i.e T3 and T4.Thus restricting the goitrogen rich put is the first and foremost care for the thyroid patient to take. The goitrogen rich food source is cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, green mustard, broccoli, soybeans, peanut, sweet potato, pears, peach, strawberries etc. Thus if you are suffering from thyroid then stop this listed item now, in order to recover faster and healthier.
2. Avoid gluten-rich food.
Gluten is a protein found in grains. Some people are allergic to gluten, as they are being gluten sensitive people, in medical terminology it is called celiac disease, celiac is an autoimmune disease, in this whenever a person eats gluten-rich food, the gluten in that food triggers the immune response, and due to it, our own immune system attacks over the lining of small intestine, thus due to this attack the lining of small intestine gets damaged and nutrient absorption got hindered.
There is also one interesting fact is that when our body has one autoimmune disease then it will trigger another autoimmune disease. thus if you have celiac disease then there is a higher probability that you will get another auto-immune disease i.e hypothyroidism.
3. Avoid junk food
Try to avoid all types of highly processed and deep fried food to give your thyroid gland some relief. You have to stop eating foods like pizza, burgers, and cakes etc.
4. Avoid tea and coffee.
Tea and coffee both are the most consumed drinks in the world thus people are so addicted to drinking this, but if you are thyroid patient then tea and coffee can cause inflammation of your thyroid gland. The thyroid glands get uncomfortable and irritated due to the drinking of tea and coffee.
