Holistic Natural Approaches to Thyroid Problems Statistics show that one in every eight women in the age group of 35 to 65 will suffer from thyroid related illnesses. Similarly one in every five women above the age of 65 will have such complications. Here are some tips on how to treat thyroid problems naturally to develop a healthy body healthy mind. You have thyroid trouble when the gland does not produce enough of the thyroid hormone. This is an affliction that 26% of women in peri-menopausal state suffer from. One of the common side effects of a thyroid related illness is depression and results from the hormone T3, which is a neuro-transmitter to calm anxiety, not being produced in sufficient quantities. A woman can be asymptomatic, where she displays all the signs of hypothyroidism but her clinical test results come back negative. Since the peri-menopausal symptoms are also the same, there are chances that one completely misses testing for thyroid related health issues. One of the common causes of hypothyroidism is a lack of iodine in the body. Introducing foods that have rich iodine content will help. Indulge in sea fish, mussels as well as lobster. Fish oil capsules and some iodized salt are recommended. Adding nuts, seeds, root vegetables and the like to your diet will also help. A popular nature-based treatment for hypothyroidism is the liqueur of walnuts. This is made from fresh walnuts that are relatively young and still within the shell. Juices from the broken shell are collected and then infused with brandy and sugar to make a liqueur. This should be had on an empty stomach each morning in a small glass. . A half hour to one hour exercise regimen, 4 to 5 days a week is necessary. You will need to start with an easy pace exercise revolving around walking, biking, or dancing. In every 20 minutes, spend only one minute doing an exercise at the maximum pace comfortable for you. Also spend time in lunges, leg stretches, and pushups. In order to treat the depression that you face when dealing with thyroid illnesses, do some deep breathing exercises. This will help the body and mind relax. You should also practice visual meditation, where you mentally transport yourself to a place that soothes and calms you. It works with all the other measures you are taking to calm your body down. Gaining an adequate dose of Vitamin D is also important for thyroid patients and therefore a little time in the sun will help a great deal. Spending around 20 minutes in the sun in the early morning and in the afternoon without any artificial protection is beneficial. This works on your calcium metabolism and enhances immunity. In the winters, talk to your health care provider on how you can use natural supplements for this.

There are several other natural forms such as acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, osteopathy and the like that you can turn to for some natural remedies to thyroid trouble. There are several research studies to prove their efficacy and you have numerous options at your disposal.
