In my recent blog  21 Tips To start Naturally Start Healing Your Thyroid

I touched on 21 things that you need to do to start healing your thyroid but here are a few other things that weren’t mentioned in that blog that you need to consider that could be contributing to your halting your thyroid from healing.


Are you having regular bowel movements?

Our body recycles our waste and hormone byproducts, which can  lead to a toxic build-up in our colons.  When your “backed up” it means that you are circulating blood unclean blood and as a result unclean tissues and organs. This will weaken the health of our organs  and in return they wont function as well as they need too. Your also allowing the rotting food that is sitting in your colon to have a change for pathogens such as parasites, bacteria and fungus to grow which could lead to diverticulitis and or a leaky gut.  A leaky gut allows undigested food, proteins, toxins, cholesterol and fats to pass through into the bloodstream.

Pooping is your body’s way to get rid of waste buildup.  We have two types of poopers in this world: Type A has their pooping down to a science. They go every day at the same time and usually (if they can help it) in the same toilet. ( This is me)  Then there’s Type B. This group doesn’t go that often and has no real ritual to its toilet habits. So, you may ask , is one healthier than the other? The answer is no. Everyone is different. There really is no “normal” habit for pooping.  The average person poops approximately once a day—about 1 ounce of stool for each 12 pounds of her or his body weight. That means a person weighing 160 pounds produces an average of just under a pound of poop each day. Poop is made up of 75% water  the remaining parts are made from a mixture of dead bacteria that helped us to digest our food, living bacteria, protein, indigestible fiber, and waste materials from the liver and intestines. Don’t start to worry if you bathroom habits change. It’s going to happen. We go on vacation & things happen in our lives. As long as your bathroom trips don’t cause pain or discomfort you are pretty much okay. Your digestive system works all day and every day, so its okay if you experience changes from time to time.  If you have  constipation or diarrhea that lasts for longer than weeks at a time or blood in your stool  you need to check with your doctor.

You have cracked feet

Believe it or not your feet are more than using to walk on. They have a lot to say about your health and can be an amazing diagnostic tool to point out potentially  a  whole host of health problems.

People with hypothyroidism commonly have cracked heels.  I am not alone when I say, “I’ve had crusty embarrassing feet”. Cracked heels (Heel Fissures) is a very common issue with people these days and nobody wants to see scaly, cracked and flaky feet. It’s not only super embarrassing but it can be quite painful too. Crusty-cracked heels can also happen when you neglect your feet and don’t moisturize properly which can develop into painful deep cuts. How you take care of your feet does say a lot about how you take care of your body.   Of course, there are many other reasons why your feet can become less attractive and just plain out ugly is lack of moisture, improper foot care, unhygienic conditions, age, Dehydration, Obesity, Diabetes, Kidney disease, hypothyroidism,

or not drinking enough water an a unhealthy diet like deficiency in zinc and omega – 3 fatty acid and wearing wrong type of shoes!

Chronic Candida

Hypothyroidism causes low body temps which allows fungal overgrowth. Get the temps up and the fungal/yeast will have nowhere to live.”

Our lives already seem to be on hold from our hypothyroidism.  Did you know that an overload of Candida was picked up at birth or shortly thereafter? We were supposed to be getting good friendly bacteria from our mother’s at birth, but “our”  mother’s had Candida overgrowth and unknowing passed it on to us. And over the years, our bodies has become more and more compromised.  Your gut microbes could be dramatically affecting your thyroid health. There is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about Candida.  Both from the medical profession and on the internet. It is easy to get fooled into thinking, as many sites will try to convince you, that all anyone needs to do is to take their product or buy their e-book. Of course, they will all have testimonies. What they don’t tell you in those testimonies is how the Candida came back — in a month or two or in six months. However long it took for the Candida to overgrow enough to start causing symptoms again. It is important to know that dealing with Candida is not an easy fix.
