The Best and Worst Foods for Your Thyroid

The most important trick of treating any problems with the thyroid gland is to find the cause. It can fall in five major categories, according to Prudence Hall, MD, from The Hall Center, which include heavy metal toxicity, genetics, iodine deficiency, and gluten. “In general, anything that is bad for the body is bad for the thyroid,” she adds. More than 70 percent of hypothyroidism – when the gland is not producing enough hormones – is due to bad habits when it comes to a person’s overall health such as eating too much processed foods and sugar.
