Followings are few tips for Thyroid patients:
1. Slow Down Your Eating
The thyroid gland is located in your throat area, so it literally connects the mind and body. When you rush while eating, the food moves so quickly from mouth to stomach that the connection from mind to body is not strong. The mouth doesn’t know what the stomach is doing and vice versa. This is good health advice no matter what: sit down, slow down, savor, breathe and chew your food. Since the thyroid is the master of your metabolism, you want to eat slowly enough so it can record the message that food is entering the body.
2. Drop the cell phone
We already know about the connection between cell phones and brain tumors. But this little radiation machine that you hold up to your ear is awfully close to your thyroid gland as well. A good alternative is to get a headset to use while speaking on the phone.
3. Find Your Voice
Once again, if you look to the anatomy, you find the thyroid gland located in the throat, the center of our communication with the world. People with hypothyroid tend to “swallow down” what they really want to say. It’s been very healing for them to learn to speak their truth. On the flip side, it has found that people with hyperthyroid talk too much, and can benefit by listening more.
4. Do Yoga
Yoga asanas can stimulate and support the entire endocrine system. The shoulder stand(sarvangasana) is especially beneficial for stimulating the thyroid gland.
