Thyroid and Liver Health

Posted: July 20, 2018

Thyroid dysfunction affects 5-8 times more women than men, and that is IF you have been properly diagnosed.. When it comes to your thyroid… diet, hormones, and the liver affect thyroid health.

My mother was very ill in her late 40’s. She had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism years before. Her doctor gave her a prescription and told her that she would be on it for the rest of her life.

I was diagnosed when I was in my late 30’s after trying to get pregnant. My doctor was an “updated” version of my mom’s and prescribed medication, but had me come in regularly to check my levels.

Neither of these approaches went to the core of what was wrong. Which is why within years, we were both told that our thyroid antibodies were raised, and we had Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis.

I had many questions. Most of which my doctor either shrugged off, saying they didn’t’ matter. Some of which he couldn’t answer. So I set on a path of finding out all I could to see if there was anything we could do to feel better.

After years of hormone issues, weight gain, brain fog and feeling horrible…I found many ways to feel great!

One of the keys to thyroid health is to keep your liver healthy. Thyroid and liver health go hand in hand.

The supplement Milk Thistle has been used for centuries to ward off the toxins that are shuttled through the liver, and to help it remain strong. Silymarin is the plant that has been used to combat alcoholism, liver toxicity, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease that is prevalent in pre-diabetics. I take this supplement daily.

Turmeric is another supplement that is beneficial in reducing stress, the toxic overload, and inflammation that comes with thyroid disease.
