Thyroid disease is not nearly as harmless as many people think. That is why it is so important to regularly monitor the condition of this organ, and if you have been diagnosed and prescribed treatment, you need to complete the entire course, without interrupting it after the first signs of improvement, under the supervision of an endocrinologist. But as an additional therapy, traditional medicine recipes can be recommended.
First of all, diet. You need to eat seafood, legumes, mushrooms, egg yolks.
Fresh feijoa fruits or juice with pulp from them are taken as a therapeutic food for thyroid diseases regularly and without restriction, or 50–100 g per day, preferably before meals.
To restore the functions of the thyroid gland and regulate metabolism, it is effective to use royal (bee) jelly in small doses. Fresh milk 20–30 mg (at the tip of a table knife) 3–4 times a day before meals, put under the tongue and hold until completely dissolved.
You can make a tincture from milk: 1 part of milk is mixed with 20 parts of vodka, taken orally 10–15 drops per 1 tbsp. a spoonful of warm boiled water 3–4 times a day an hour before meals. Contraindications may be acute infectious diseases, diseases of the adrenal glands and allergies to bee products.
A very popular remedy for diseases of the thyroid gland is blood-red hawthorn tincture. It should be taken 20–40 drops per 1 tbsp. a spoonful of warm boiled water 3–5 times a day, preferably before meals.
With an enlarged gland, it is recommended to regularly eat lemons or oranges, grated with peel and mixed with sugar. Therapeutic dose — 1 teaspoon 3 times a day.
Fresh wild strawberries can be eaten in large quantities as an antithyroid agent.
With the onset of goiter or obesity of the neck, brew 1 cup of boiling water 2 tbsp. spoons of oak bark, insist 1 hour and strain. Soak a handkerchief in this infusion and tie around the throat overnight. These procedures should be done for 2–3 weeks.
To prevent the appearance of goiter, you need to wear a thread of real yellow amber around your neck.
