The 7 Day Hypothyroid Diet Plan is the first thyroid diet guide that will teach you everything you need to know about how to heal your thyroid gland naturally.
Whether you deal with an underactive thyroid, or any other thyroid condition, your damaged thyroid cells can heal themselves and you can achieve optimum health.
Cells renew themselves all the time exactly the same way a wound heals itself
“Whatever happens on the external level also happens on the internal”
We wouldn’t be able to stay alive if cells didn’t consistently renew themselves. Cells also eat, sleep, drink, communicate with other cells and much more.
But cells also have limits on how much they can take and just like with all other machines, you want to make sure it gets the proper fuel so it can keep functioning at an optimum level.
Our human body is an amazing machine, it does everything it can to protect us and does not make mistakes – even if sometimes it feels otherwise.
If certain organs are weakened and require more nutrition, the body will find a way to compensate, such as pulling calcium from the bones for vital cells activity and so on.
Our cells require very specific energy and nutrition in order to function well and heal, and if you are sick, first and foremost, you will have to change your diet and get rid of unhealthy habits that got you sick in the first place.
Second step would be reinforcing new habits that actually serve us. Habits that make us healthy and happy, habits that make us thrive and become the best version of ourselves.
Before we dive into details of what an alkaline hypothyroidism diet looks like, first, let’s discuss what really happens inside our body and why you got sick in the first place.
The thyroid gland is a small little gland located in the front area of our neck that is responsible for our body’s metabolism, temperature, heart rate and much more.
The Thyroid gland produces two main thyroid hormones – triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which are sent to the cells throughout the blood system. Once our cells receive those hormones, they can use them to perform essential and vital tasks.
When the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones or (T4 and T3) or just one thyroid hormone, the entire body slows down and becomes hypo, and when the thyroid over produces hormones, the body gets into a hyper state.
Some may also refer to hypothyroidism as Hashimoto disease, thyroid disease or thyroid disorder.
You will be amazed to find out how much chaos one small little gland can cause, especially when one thyroid hormone is not balanced with the other.
Weight gain or weight loss, hair loss, dry skin, difficulty breathing, heart disorders, excessive sweat, no sweat, pain, numbness, anxiety, depression, balance issues, lack of concentration, brain fog, skin conditions, diarrhea and constipation, hemorrhoids and the list goes on and on.
An alkaline thyroid diet not only reduces and eliminates thyroid symptoms, it also induces weight loss by improving metabolism, which can be a struggle when dealing with hypothyroidism.
“We can’t blame just one Cute little gland…”
Let’s say that you had some issues with your house heating system- it simply doesn’t work.
You may look into fixing the actual heater, but what happens if the heater is connected to a thermostat?
Wouldn’t you like to rule out that option?
The thyroid gland is part of a collection of glands that is called the Endocrine System. Together they control and responsible for every little task in our body.
Remember how we talked about the heating system and the thermostat?
In the brain, you can find two other super important glands: The Pituitary and Hypothalamus glands.
The Pituitary gland is the actual thermostats that tells the Thyroid gland how much hormones to produce. It sends a special hormone TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), just like a messenger.
If the Pituitary gland sends too much TSH, we will have high levels of TSH in our blood and vice versa. If the Pituitary gland produces too little TSH, our blood record will show low level of TSH.
TSH is a thyroid stimulation hormone and not a thyroid hormone like T3 or T4.
You are probably asking yourself…
If the Pituitary gland controls the Thyroid gland….then what gland controls the Pituitary gland?
The Hypothalamus gland is like the human being, like a person who controls the thermostats. The Hypothalamus reads the levels of T4 and T3 hormones in our blood and signals The Pituitary gland accordingly.
For instance, if the T4 and T3 levels are low (underactive thyroid), most likely we will see high levels of TSH in our blood, which means The Pituitary gland tells the thyroid to work harder and produce more hormones.
If the T4 and T3 levels in the blood stream are high (overactive thyroid), most likely we will see low levels of TSH, which means, The Pituitary gland tells the Thyroid to slow down and not produce as much hormones as there are too much of them at the moment.
When doing your blood work you can order some specific tests to further investigate which gland is responsible for your symptoms.
The 7 day hypothyroidism diet plan following with a complete thyroid healing protocol will help you improve your blood work results and even completely heal.
Why Are you Sick?
So what makes a little gland like that go crazy and why is it lazy or working more than it should?…
Without any further ado, let’s just get straight to the point.
If you haven’t been aware of it by now, everything you have been doing in your life up until this point is the reason you are sick.
Yes, weak genes will determine if you have hypothyroidism, diabetes, psoriasis or any other autoimmune, so called diseases, but the real reason you are sick is because of your diet and lifestyle:
- Eating, drinking, and sleeping habits
- Trauma, emotions and thinking patterns
- Drugs and medications
- Cosmetics, hygiene and other care products (toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotions, perfumes, deodorants, makeup, etc..)
- Dental work (Amalgam fillings that contain mercury)
But wait, I still don’t get it… what’s wrong with everything I’ve been doing so far …?
We already mentioned that our body is an amazing machine, right?
It is so intelligent that it’s designed with two major and extremely important systems.
The Blood System and the Lymphatic System.
The Blood System is our body’s “ Kitchen”, it sends nutrition to cells so they can eat and keep up with their work.
The Lymphatic System, on the other end is the body’s “Sewer System”, it removes all the waste from our cells, just like the sewer system we have in our house.
Keep in mind that all cells are live beings, they eat and poop just like all of us, the only difference is that cells cannot move and therefore require the two major systems (blood & kitchen) to be fed and cleaned in order to survive.
Throwing lots of waste into your garbage disposal or bathroom- what do you think would happen?
We would have a blockage.
That is exactly what happens inside the human body – Our sewer system is completely blocked.
Toxins and waste build up inside the cells and their surroundings area, not being able to move. Slowly they start damaging the cells until they become deform, same concept as if we were to leave a dirty diaper on baby, it doesn’t take long for the entire area to get completely inflamed with a skin rush, bacteria or even infection.
What do you mean by toxins?
Remember how your old high school or college chemistry teacher used to talk about Acid and Alkaline PH levels?
No need to know much other than the fact that there are only two sides of chemistry Acid and Alkaline, which is very symbolic to everything else in life, Yin and yang, light and dark, night and day, etc…
It seems that our body can only take food PH levels that are Alkaline and anything else that is not Alkaline – which is Acid hurts our body.
Our body is unable to process and eliminate acidic PH food and that is the reason why we get sick.
In other words, if we only consume alkaline food or jump on an alkaline rich diet you will be able to heal your thyroid or hypothyroidism completely or any other so called dis-ease.
heal your thyroid
Following an alkaline thyroid diet means, completely, changing your diet and lifestyle to only consume raw fruit and vegetables.
Acidic foods cause acidosis (root of all diseases) which is an environment where all diseases form and grow – by eating acid food we are basically feeding disease.
On the other hand, alkaline foods nourish our bodies and do not provide food for diseases, hence, a healthy, strong living when your body is untouchable even to catching a cold, flu or allergies.
On the chart above you can also see food that doesn’t fit for human consumption- whatsoever!
You can still eat cooked veggies but those will slow down the healing and detox process. It is really a question of how fast you wish to heal.
The best foods to heal your thyroid are fruit, especially red grapes, berries and melons.
How to change your diet?
Set realistic expectations…
Healing your Thyroid does not take 7 days, it can take anywhere from a few weeks, months to even years.
If your condition is not that severe and you only eat fruit, you will be able to reverse some symptoms in a few weeks. However, if your condition is severe and your diet is mixed it could take years to heal.
If your condition is severe and you wish to heal fast, sticking with a pure alkaline diet that is rich in fruit is the best way to go.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is what does your current diet look like?
Do you consume meat, dairy, bread, sugar, gluten, salt, soda, etc…?
Do you smoke?
Review the Acid / Alkaline tablet above and eliminate the most acidic items in your diet.
Incorporate as much raw fruit and vegetables as possible.
You can steam or cook veggies or even quinoa – anything would be better than meat, dairy and bread at that point but on the other hand, If you are trying to heal fast, you may like to stick to raw fruit and veggies only.
“You cannot take thyroid healing advise from people who did not heal their own thyroid or helped others heal”
We are emotional eaters who are triggered by smell, vision, sound and touch, we also work in groups which means we are most likely to be affected by people around us and their views.
It is essential we surround ourselves with individuals who share a similar path or who walked the walk you wish to walk.
Healing your Thyroid also means healing your mind and heart, in fact, it may be impossible to heal just by changing your diet alone, as negative emotions and thinking patterns also affect the health of our cells.
Eating an alkaline diet is huge but not enough by itself to heal a disease.
It will be very hard to stick with an alkaline diet or anything else that requires awareness, when our minds and emotions are not in the right place.
Negative emotions are stored in the liver and kidneys, they block digestion (pancreatic functions) and other glandular functions that are responsible for a balanced hormonal environment.
Negative emotions also shut down our minds, to a point where we don’t think properly, we are unable to comprehend and make rational decisions.
If that is not enough, negative emotions also close off the heart centers, and once the heart center is closed, it drastically lowers the chances of getting healthy to a point of death.
This is a very complex issue when we are unable to let go of negative past experiences which consciously and subconsciously affect everything we are.
The inability of letting go and enjoying every moment for what it is, has a direct effect on opening our heart centers to reach optimal health.
Love, happiness, joy, health and mental control all keep the heart open.
Unhappiness, depression, despair, anger, jealousy, rage, and similar shut down and block vital organs and metabolic activities.
The more awareness we have about how certain things affect us, the easier and faster we can let go of destructive thoughts and emotional patterns that make us sick.
Healing your thyroid will require you to dig deeper by asking yourself questions about your behavior and thinking patterns, it will challenge many ideas and believes you have.
Staying on Track!
Make sure to read and educate yourself as much as possible.
Being able to understand what happens inside the body, how the mind works and why we feel the way we feel, will help you stay on track with your healing journey.
We would recommend to read the book “The Detox Miracle Sourcebook ” by Dr. Morse who is the Pioneer and father of the International School of Detoxification & Rejuvenation.
The 7 day hypothyroid diet plan is designed to work with different levels of commitment.
Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism need to be completely of charts in order to be considered as life threatening conditions, which means, you have a little bit more room for flexibility.
It is completely understandable that not everybody can change their lifestyle and what they eat overnight and therefore It is entirely up to you how much you wish to apply.
Changing your lifestyle and mental process takes time.
It requires to eliminate old habits that don’t serve us anymore and introduce new positive habits that will take us where we want to be.
If changing our diet was so easy, then everybody would have been healthy, but we are too addicted to sugar, soda, meat, fried food, breads, diary, candy, processed food, GMO, MSG, high fructose corn syrup etc.. that we can’t help ourselves and stop.
We hardly ever consume raw fruits and veggies. Almost everything comes prepackaged, cooked or processed.
Healing your thyroid is a spiritual journey more than anything. It requires you to dive into your subconscious mind and challenge it. It requires us to dig deep and find out why we keep consuming the food that makes us sick, overweight, bloated and tired.
Hypothyroidism & Weight Loss
Changing our diet to lose weight doesn’t always work.
Apparently, wanting to fit in skinny jeans isn’t always enough of a drive to make you give up cheese.
However, getting sick is a different game.
At the same time, many who deal with hypothyroidism find it very challenging to lose weight and therefore the focus should be on thyroid health and thyroid healing and less on weight loss. Once the thyroid gland heals, hormones are regulated and metabolism is normal, the body would have no issues losing weight.
Get rid of the habit of comparing your body to others, we are all different! different people with different genetics have different metabolism rate which determines how fast or slow we lose weight.
You may find yourself restricting calories or over exercising without losing or hardly losing weight, which can get very frustrating. Don’t let weight loss be your goal. The goal should always be healing your thyroid health.
You may also find that the need and the want to get healthy is much more powerful for many us to force an immediate change.
