TOP 7 WAYS to Heal Your Thyroid Naturally
1-Eating the Right Foods
Recognize the link between nutrition and thyroid function. The thyroid depends on good nutrition to get the iodine, selenium and vitamins it needs to function properly. Without the proper nutritional balance, the thyroid cannot do its job properly. Take some time for nutrition. While it’s not always the simplest, it will provide you and your family with great service by making your own food and encouraging everyone in your family to follow a healthier diet.
2-Limit how much processed and pre-packaged foods that you eat
3-Increase the vegetables and fruits in your diet
Whenever possible, choose to eat local, seasonal and organic products, the fresher the better. Don’t worry too much about getting the vegetables. Any product is better than no product, even frozen fruits and vegetables can benefit your health.
4-Limit your meat intake
5-Boost your fish consumption
Fish is a good quality protein and often has high amounts of healthy omega-3 fats.  Fish is generally lean and can be quite easy to prepare.
6-Include beans and legumes in your diet
Legumes include foods such as lentils and contain many of the vitamins and minerals that the thyroid needs to produce thyroid hormone. They are also a good source of protein for people who have limited or abandoned meat consumption.
7-Reduce your sugar intake
To keep your sugar levels low, choose complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains. Avoid sugar and sugar substitutes. Simple sugar, either as granulated table sugar or as high fructose corn syrup, is very similar to an addictive drug.  Try using the stevia herb as a sugar substitute if you have trouble leaving the candy.
8-Get enough iodine
If you eat a diet that includes moderate amounts of salt and some red meat, you probably get a lot of iodine. But, if you have stopped drinking salt to try to control your blood pressure, make sure you have an alternative source of iodine. The thyroid needs iodine for proper functioning. If necessary, obtain a high quality supplement that contains at least 50% of the daily iodine requirement. You can also supplement your diet with some of the following sources of iodine: 
9-Ask your doctor about other supplements
Talk to your healthcare provider about the advantages of supplementing with zinc and selenium, minerals necessary for proper thyroid function. Also, ask about vitamin D3 supplementation (2000 IU every day).  Autoimmune disease correlates with low levels of vitamin D.
