How to keep the thyroid happy!
With the current state of affairs with the coronavirus, it is critical to stay alert with keeping your thyroid healthy, especially if you suffer from a thyroid condition like hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's.
Thyroid symptoms can vary but the most common ones that I see in women are fatigue, weight gain and difficulty losing weight, hair loss, constipation, and mood swings. And by the way, you don't need to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism to have these symptoms.

In this video I discuss:
* A few tips that can help keep your thyroid healthy during this time
* Why this is important
* What does oxidative stress do to your body
Anti-oxidants are super important for the thyroid, especially under a stressful state. When the body is overloaded with oxidative stress, the thyroid is a target for oxalates. This will cause the thyroid to slow down and give you symptoms of a low thyroid, especially in women.
Exercise can create lean muscle mass which can help control how your thyroid hormone regulates your body. This can be such an easy fix by just lifting some weights and trying some interval training to decrease any slow thyroid symptoms.
Adequate iodine intake is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. Your thyroid hormones (T4 and T3) are named due to the number of iodine molecules they possess. This is why iodine deficiency is so common to see when you have a slow thyroid or hypothyroidism.
I hope you learned why it is so important to maintain a healthy thyroid. Hopefully, it has helped you to prioritize keeping your thyroid healthy so that you can feel good, energized, and that you can find the solutions to your health problems.
