The food you eat directly impacts your gut health, which plays a role in your thyroid function. When there is an imbalance of healthy gut flora with harmful bacteria, overcoming thyroid dysfunction can be a challenge.
The good news? Simply changing your eating habits can help improve your gut health.
A few of the best ways include:
Eating more fibrous foods such as vegetables, fruit, sprouted grains, and nuts & seeds.
Reducing highly inflammatory food items. Common offenders include processed snacks, chips, sugary treats or drinks, and fast food. Replace these with whole, real foods.
