#nutrition # I have thyroid and I'm taking 125 mcg of thyronorm. Does any change in food habits or consuming certain type of foods help in reducing thyroid levels? please advice.



Seema Kazi Rangnekar

Eat fresh vegetables like green leafy vegetables like spinach, various kinds of lettuces, Indian greens among others.
Avoid cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, Spanish cabbage, Brussels sprouts though.

Eat lots of fresh fruits like watermelons, kiwis, peaches, apples & dried fruits as they are a good source of minerals & vitamins. 

sunflower seeds, cashews, mushrooms, onions, beans, whole grains, is also extremely beneficial, as they ensure that you receive good amounts of Zinc and Selenium, thus boosting your immunity and thyroid function significantly. 


Regular exposure to sun is very important for the regulation of vitamin D. 


Engage in moderate exercise and meditation as it releases much needed endorphins and controls your cortisol.


9. Do restrict the intake of food groups like Dairy products, gluten rich foods and refined foods like white sugar and refined flour.
