Your immune system works best when you are getting at least seven to nine hours of sleep every night.
Practice some form of stress management daily. This is especially important during this COVID-19 crisis
We have recorded guided thyroid sleep meditations to help you fall into a restful sleep.
Vitamin A enhances immune function and provides an improved defence against infectious diseases. Vitamin A also reduces concentrations of TSH and regulates thyroid hormone metabolism.
Keep your immune system strong by eating well! Research suggests that the majority of our immune system resides in our gut, and the thyroid is particularly sensitive to changes in the gut microbiome. A healthy gut means a stronger immune system to support metabolic functions and fight off infection.
1. Remove dietary triggers. Reactive foods may cause inflammation that can worsen your autoimmune reactions or interfere with your thyroid function. Work with a Paloma Nutritionist to identify your personal dietary triggers and develop a personalized eating plan.
2. Replace with nutrient-rich foods. You need nutrients like selenium, iron, and zinc for thyroid synthesis. While shopping during the COVID crisis may be challenging, you can still stock up on frozen fruits & veggies, canned fish like tuna, salmon, and sardines, and healthy fats like seeds and nuts.
3. Reintroduce healthy bacteria. Probiotics can help to rebalance your gut microbiome, which may reduce leaky gut which can cause immune reactions like inflammation or pain.
4. Repair with supplementation. Key nutrients drive thyroid hormone production. Work with a nutritionist to determine how to supplement nutrient deficiencies to improve thyroid symptoms or support thyroid medication absorption.
We offer online nutritionist consultations to help you boost your immune system and support your thyroid function.
The more dietary stress you put on yourself, the more likely you are to experience inflammation that can worsen your autoimmune reactions and interfere with your immune system.
