How Much Is Your Thyroid Working?
Even if you are on medication, the more your body can make thyroid hormone on its own, the better. This is true in terms of both these long-term risks and immediate quality of life.
Ultimately, this is why there are so many people who are on medication, but still struggle with resolving their symptoms.
In my experience, I have seen plenty of people who feel that the next change in dosage or that the next tweak is going to be the victorious one. All too often, though, that promise never materializes and people are left struggling.
Now, we know why – because taking it is not the same as making it.
Here’s the good news: The likelihood of your thyroid making hormones again is very high. Studies have shown that about 80-90% can see more output from their thyroid.
Of them, somewhere around 40-50% can reach a point where they don’t need any thyroid hormone any longer. Even those that do, can take steps to work with it more effectively.
The main thing that changes this comes down to regulating iodine. And, it’s the basic principle that helped me write the Thyroid Reset Diet.
It was based on these very studies I have been talking about today. I have taken them together, but in total, they show that:
- The disease reverse for most
- Most can reduce their requirement for medication
- Many may no longer need any medication at all
In short, allowing your body to do great work by itself is always going to trump what can be done with medication. So, we need to give our body the opportunity to do exactly that.
Our own internal capacity for control and regulation is unmatched. And, it’s something that we can’t totally replicate. Let’s talk about how to achieve your optimal thyroid values today.
