For better thyroid function, be careful with gluten and clean microflora
The intestinal microflora protects the body from viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. The intestinal microflora also activates fermentation processes associated with thyroid hormones. That is why it is important to have and preserve a healthy microflora if you have problems (and disorders) with the thyroid gland.
- You should eat more cellulose – digestive problems contribute to the development of pathogenic microflora in the intestines. Therefore, the diet should contain products that contain cellulose. These are fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains. Drink at least one and a half liters of water a day.
- Beware of gluten – often gluten intolerance in case of thyroid dysfunction. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Therefore, people who have problems with the thyroid gland are advised to eliminate these foods from their diet. Herbalists advise that these patients clean their intestines with salt water every spring. It is advisable to clean the intestines earlier in the morning on an empty stomach. Pour a tablespoon of sea or common salt (with a low concentration) into a liter of warm water. Stir. Drink up to two glasses of salt water at a time. Minor weakness, discomfort and nausea may be felt in the bowel area which is a natural process. Bowel emptying will follow soon. After that, the unpleasant feelings will disappear. Drink salt water throughout the day for better bowel emptying. Drink this way until the salt water becomes bright when you go out / urinate (without fecal matter). An hour after the procedure, each person can have breakfast. Breakfast can be rice porridge or some other porridge prepared with water or a mild vegetable soup. Thirst can be quenched with mild non-carbonated mineral water or medicinal liquid with dried fruit. Drink in small sips.
