The thyroid gland, an organ in the shape of a butterfly located at the base of the neck, is the part of the body responsible for producing and secreting hormones that affect nearly every aspect of an individual’s body. When the thyroid becomes stressed, the rate at which it produces hormones slows down, resulting in weight gain, sleep disturbances, skin problems, constipation, fatigue, and psychological problems.

The thyroid works in harmony-loop with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, which are located in the brain by controlling the thyroid’s activity. The thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) then stimulates the pituitary gland to release thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).

Amongst the most important of the 4 foremost hormones produced by the thyroid are triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). An imbalance of this trifecta leads to Hypothyroidism.

The thyroids’ main function is to produce T4 stimulants, but the lesser produced T3 is the hormone really in charge! They are responsible for food metabolism (weight gain/loss), control involuntary and voluntary muscle contraction (think; the speed of heartbeat), and regulate body temperature… The chain reaction of a thyroid dysfunction causes chronic fatigue, lack of concentration, and low motivation: physical factors resulting in depression.

Certain foods will be disruptive to how well the pituitary, hypothalamus and thyroid gland function. Thus, particularly for individuals who are dealing with thyroid issues, diet is quite important. Here are the worst foods for the thyroid gland that should be limited or avoided entirely.

The internet is inundated with nutritional pages (respected cancer clinics included) claiming dairy, fish, chicken and eggs to be a healthy choice for Thyroid health: listing one of these should be sufficient proof they copy and paste from each other without regard for your health!
