Over 15 million people in the United States alone suffer from undiagnosed thyroid diseases, cancers, and issues today.
Natural Remedies For Thyroid Issues

It can make us feel very cold especially in our hands and feet, it can make us feel very tired all the time, fatigued, we could get a full nights rest and wake up and still have no energy whatsoever. B-12 can help reverse some of the damages that hypothyroidism has caused. B-12 also helps regulate energy production in our bodies

The deficiencies of thyroid hormones in your central nervous system can cause weight gain, weight loss, anxiety, depression, fatigue, rapid heart beat, lack of energy, pain in your joints, mood swings, dry skin, hair loss, and brittle nails. These symptoms are all signs of your thyroid malfunctioning. We can start changing our foods with these sources of vitamins in them, but we can also start taking these vitamin supplements as well. Remember when starting on supplements it might take a few weeks for you to start noticing any changes or feeling better because they are natural and it takes time for them to get in your system. Don’t give up on them if you don’t see a change right away give it some time.
If we start changing our diets and put exercise into our daily routines it can help the hormones in our bodies to help regulate and get back on track with our lives. Exercise, I’m not saying go out and wear yourself out because that could actually be over doing it, I’m talking about going for a walk or yoga something easy on your joints until you start feeling better and then if you want to add more in each day.
