In this video, we’re going to talk about how to get your thyroid to work better.
The pituitary releases a hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone. This hormone tells the thyroid to release T4 and T3. T4 is the inactive thyroid hormone that converts to T3, which is the active thyroid hormone.
If you have low thyroid stimulating hormone—you have enough. If this hormone is high, you need more of these hormones. It’s then going to increase to produce more of the hormones.
The two main problems with a hypothyroid condition:
1. You’re not making enough thyroid hormone (usually T4)
What’s usually happening is something is suppressing the function of the thyroid. Keto and intermittent fasting will help greatly improve thyroid function.
Things that can suppress thyroid function:
2. Or, you’re not covering T4 to T3
If you’re on the ketogenic diet, you’re already eating foods that will give you the above vitamins and minerals, and when on keto, the need for T3 goes down. Also, if there’s a problem with the liver or gallbladder, you’re not going to convert T4 to T3. Taking bile salts will help improve the conversion. In order to convert T4 to T3, you need cofactors—helper vitamins and minerals.
• Vitamin D
• Vitamin A
Other things that can interfere with thyroid function:
• High blood pressure medications
• Excessive iron
• Phytic acid (grains)
• Coffee/Tea (depletes certain nutrients)
If you have Hashimoto’s, you need:
• Vitamin D
• To do intermittent fasting
