Careful inspection of human and medical history shows that infection-related diseases are reduced, and genetic and chronic diseases are increasing. About a hundred years ago, very rare diseases such as asthma, hashimoto, cardiovascular disease are growing like snowball today. I WONDER WHY!!!


Hashimoto is an autoimmune disease characterized by continuous inflammation of the whole body, especially the thyroid gland (inflammation) and decreased secretion of hormones (hypothyroidism).


Our thyroid gland is in our region known as the throat, which is located on two sides just below the throat outlet, called the Adam’s apple. This two-piece cloth is connected to one another.


Calcitonin and thyroxin are two different hormones that are secreted from the thyroid gland. The thyroxin hormone also exists in two ways:

T4 (Tetraiodothyronine) 93%

T3 (Triiodothyronine) 7% (although it is produced in small quantity, it is more active than T4)

Even if the thyroid gland does not work, these hormones are created to handle three months. (Because they are stored in the thyroid gland by binding to a protein called thyroglobulin).

When the thyroid hormones decrease in blood, the TRH hormone is secreted from the brain region, which is mainly called the hypothalamus. This chain triggers the TSH hormone in the pituitary gland. As a result, hormone production starts again from the thyroid gland.

Physiological effects of thyroid hormones:

  • Except for some organs (brain, spleen, testicles), it increases heat production and oxygen consumption in all body tissues.
  • Adjusts the basal metabolic rate. When declined, body functions slow (e.g. weight loss stops, constant chill). If it increases excessively, the functions unnecessarily accelerate (e.g. complain of continuous extreme temperature)
  • It plays an important role in the development of the brain development and skeletal system (especially in the womb and children at the age of development).
  • Adjusts the contraction functions of the heart muscle. In Hypothyroidism patients also has a low heart rate. In hyperthyroid patients, unnecessary pulse increases are observed.
  • Has a role in blood production. Hormones become less anemic.
  • Effective on gastrointestinal (gastrointestinal) system. Decreases in constipation and bowel movements is seen as thyroid hormones decrease. Intestinal permeability increases.
  • Effective on blood fat ratio. Blood cholesterol levels increase in people with hypothyroidism. Effective on memory and learning. Learning and memorizing capacities of those with low thyroid hormones fall (Thyroid hormones affect the memory and learning functions of the brain in the brain, especially the hippocampal region, as well as the enzymes that regulate the metabolic rate of brain cells)


The most common causes of hypothyroidism (hypothyroidism) include iodine deficiency and autoimmune disease (Hashimoto). The incidence of females is ten times higher than that of males (95% of patients are female). Generally, the incidence increases between the ages of 45 and 60 (the incidence with age also increases). But it is already seen so often in young people. Countries with high iodine intake have an increase in frequency. For example, in countries such as America, Japan, iodine intake and Hashimoto’s rate are high. Genetic transmission is high (antibody levels to the thyroid gland in first degree relatives are high).


  • Disruptive areas

The presence of infection in the dentate lines, amalgam fillings, multiple implant teeth, scar / surgery / scar on the body. Frequent infections (tonsillitis). Decayed tooth, wrong prosthesis, incomplete canal treatment. Temporomandibular joint pathology due to jaw joint problem, operations etc. These and other conditions can trigger premature depolarization of the cell and cause parasite signals to spread in the body. As a result, hashimoto and many other diseases can be triggered.

  • Exposure to heavy metals and chemicals

Heavy metals with high occupational exposure such as mercury, lead. Excessive intake of certain substances such as copper, chlorine, fluorine. Some medications used in treatment (e.g., lithium used in psychiatry, drugs such as divalproex sodium reduce T3 levels)

  • Excessive consumption of some foods

(Especially patients with autoimmune basis). Cabbage, refined soy products, etc.

  • Iodine deficiency.

Since 2000, iodine has been added to salt in Turkey.


However, the number of Hashimoto has increased in countries such as Turkey, China, Azerbaijan, Iran, Austria, Sri Lanka, and Argentina where salt is iodized.

There is also no adequate information about iodine supplementation to reduce goiter frequency.

Note: Of course, this information should not imply that we should not neglect iodine deficiency. If there is a deficiency, it must be eliminated.

Vitamin D deficiency

The deficiency of vitamin D is shown as a risk factor for the development of many autoimmune diseases including Hashimoto.

Physiological effects of vitamin D related to our topic and metabolic processes:

– Prevents excessive stimulation of Th2 cells, which are effective in increasing inflammation. Eventually, the autoimmune response is reduced.

– Increased intestinal permeability reduces the absorption of vitamin D.

-Vitamin D and stress hormones are made from cholesterol. The cholesterol used in the synthesis of vitamin D in stress is reduced (as it is spent on the production of stress hormones)

– The normal state of thyroid hormones supports the activity of vitamin D. (In the autoimmune thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto thyroiditis, the structure of the receptors to which vitamin D is to be effected is altered (polymorphism).

  • Deficiency of Selenium

Selenium is an element found in trace amounts in the body. Especially if the antioxidant effect is combined with vitamin E, it increases. And they show a protective effect against free radicals that harm our bodies. Metabolic processes related to the topic:

-Selenium increases the activity of the 5 ‘deiodinase enzyme (which performs T3 synthesis from T4). As a result, the formation of T3 from T4, namely thyroid hormone activity increases. In the absence of this conversion is reduced.

– Selenium also protects the thyroid gland against excessive iodine loading. (This is done by reducing the activity of thyroid peroxidase enzyme responsible for thyroid hormone production).

  • Stress

It reduces or complicates the response of cells to the thyroid hormone produced in the body. The function of receptors must be normal for the cells to respond. The metabolic processes that occur in the body during stress affect this response mechanism adversely.

Chronic stress exposure exacerbates cortisol levels in the body, furthermore the function of the 5′-deiodinase enzyme reduces. In this case, activation of the thyroid hormone stops (T4 cannot change to T3).In order for the thyroid gland to be healthy, the adrenal gland should be healthy. Because stress hormones (adrenaline, cortisol) are secreted from here.

Factors that increase stress

External factors Internal Factors




Psychological mobbing


Economic problems


Family problems


Chronic infection

Continuous blood sugar level change

Corruption of the intestinal sealing wall

Food intolerance (especially gluten)


Insulin resistance


Gluten Enteropathy – Celiac

Many social studies have found a strong association between autoimmune thyroid diseases (Hashimoto, Graves, etc.) and gluten intolerance.


When the intestinal natural flora is destroyed, the digestive function also deteriorates naturally. In these cases, the gluten in the wheat passes through the blood circulation without undergoing digestion and alteration. The immune system recognizes these undigested protein particles as foreign, allergenic, and toxic. If this exposure becomes chronic, defense’s response to these is shown up against their own cells. It also destroys the thyroid gland, which is the locus (autoimmune reaction)



Our biggest misconception is that our body sends us a signal that we try to suppress them by thinking they are illnesses. The most obvious example is pain. If we are alerted to feel uncomfortable by pain, this should lead us to the following question. WHY DID THIS PAIN OCCUR? However, before we go into any research, we prefer pain relief with pain killers. And perhaps with this behavior we are opening the door to faults that will affect our whole life. We suppress the back pain and cause the growth of the herniation, suppress the pain in the joints, accelerating the complete loss of the joint. Migraine is such a clinical case. Migraine is not just a headache. The clinical statement that develops with nausea and vomiting, deterioration of intestinal order, and the involvement of many systems with psychiatric disorders. Headache is an uncomfortable part of this large statement

Let’s take a look at some of the effective mechanisms in the formation of Hashimoto, which seriously affects our bodies:

Although Hashimoto seems to be a disease that affects the thyroid gland, overreacting of immune system underlies beneath. We call it the autoimmune response.

Just as some harmful bacteria and viruses that enter our body are sick of us and infect our organs, in a similar situation we are also confronted here, with one difference, this inflammation is germ-free inflammation. In diseases we investigate under the heading of autoimmune diseases, all the stages of the physiology and metabolic processes of the thyroid gland are destroyed by the inflammation that is constantly triggered by the immune system. As a result, the thyroid gland does not function. How would this inflammatory process affect thyroid hormone production?

-Inflammation first suppresses the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis, which is effective in thyroid hormone production.

-Inflammation in the second stage reduces the sensitivity of thyroid receptors (Make as much thyroid hormone supplement as you want the thyroid gland work does not increase because the sensors do not respond).

-The formation of thyroid hormone which will work in the third stage is suppressed (the conversion of T4 to T3 is suppressed).

The question is: “Why did the immune system feel the need to overreact.” Here the classic understanding cannot give the answer.

Let’s tell you the truth now!

  1. Thirst is the most important mechanism that triggers inflammation. If you observe the majority of the patients carefully, you will see that people do not consume as much water. Even if they claim to have enough water, this time you will see that in the provision of cell equilibrium, they break the bonds with the real (unrefined) salts necessary to provide water acceptance and osmosis balance. Inadequate consumption of water begins to dehydrate the body with the proliferation of actions that increase water excretion (fever, diuretic drugs that increase urinary excretion, some blood pressure medications, alcohol, etc.). In our bodies, HİSTAMİN is one of the substances in water regulation. Our bodies are all set to survive. Our bodies are HİSTAMİN, one of the substances in water regulation. Our bodies are all set to survive. If water intake is reduced, a crisis management situation is created in the body and this value increased liquid is sent to the vital organs (brain, heart, lungs, and kidneys). Some of our non-vital organs are deprived of this reduced water (e.g. our hair, arms, legs, intestines, etc.). Here is what the increase in histamine regulates. As a result inflammation is also increased.

It should be avoided from the negative water that increases water excretion: alcohol, caffeinated drinks, ready-made fruit juices, black tea, coffee etc.)

  1. Degradation of body acid base balance

The body pH should be between 7,35-7,45 without balancing. So our body is mildly alkaline. 1-7 acid, 7-14 alkaline. (You can simply measure this by salivating with litmus paper). Mainly the decrease in the water consumption acidify the body.

Loss of alkalizing substances such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, especially during the intake of gibberish foods, baking, cereals, roasted snacks, processed foods, sugary and overly protein foods, or during the processing of meat, cereals, quickly shifts the body Ph balance towards the acid. The most important parts undertaking task in the adjustment of the acid-base balance in our body are the kidneys. Here, the rich nutrition of acid, the decrease in water consumption, increases the kidney acidity.

Stress, sadness, soul depression also shifts the body Ph. balance towards acid.

The acidification of the tissues mainly in the cell increases inflammation (inflammation). This quickly leads to an increase in histamine, the autoimmune reaction deepens. Alkaline water, fruit, vegetables should be richly fed to reduce the kidney acid load. Traditional meat processing methods should be returned (home roasting, bacon and sausages).  The acid load of the food such as the fermented yoghurt, kefir, and cream is lower. But most importantly, water and true salt consumption should not be neglected.

  1. Allergy and food intolerance increases the Hashimoto thyroiditis risk

If we look at the physiological events between the thyroid hormones and the gastrointestinal system,

– Normal thyroid hormones support tight connections in the intestinal wall. If the level of thyroid hormone falls, these tight junctions loose and the intestinal permeability increases.

-Normal thyroid hormones reduce ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract (because thyroid hormones provide mucosal integrity).

– The intact of the intestinal microorganism surface is necessary for the activation of thyroid hormones. (Approximately 1/5 of T4 turns into T3, which is the active form in intestinal cells, with the aid of intestinal probiotic bacteria). This means that the active T3 level will decrease.

Now let’s talk a little bit about how this physiology breaks down:

If your digestive system does not consume a food, does not digest it, and you consume these foods constantly, your body will perceive them as foreign substances. Continuous response of the immune system increases inflammation. The increase in inflammation increases HISTAMINE level and again autoimmune response.

In the last fifty years, especially with the globalization of the world, environmental factors have begun to be destroyed, especially by losing their naturalness. When we take a look at our changing diet, we see that food like our ancestors’ butter, breast milk, house yogurt, kefir, fresh vegetables / fruits, vitamin D (sun exposure), rock salt, have gone out; frozen foods, hormone-fed chickens, refined products, candies, refined salt has taken their place. Mostly cesarean births with an increase of 80% took the place of normal births.

These cesarean births, the frequent use of antibiotics, nutritional errors leading to loss of intestinal flora (ready, mixed, additive foods, undigested foods), cigarettes, acid drinks, D vitamins deficiency, gluten, heavy metals, reduced water consumption lead to loss of intestinal flora followed by impairment of the immunity (Th2 / Th1 ratio varies in the direction of Th2) which is effective on the intestinal surface. In the end THE INTESTINAL PROTECTION WALL DISAPPEARS. When this intestinal sealing wall breaks down, fast and intense foreign allergen and harmful amino acid particles begin to penetrate into our body. The liver and defense (immune) system is rapidly activated to eliminate these allergens and toxins. When this exposure is continuous, activation in the immune system begins to turn into unnecessary overreaction. And the autoimmune response starts (the normal response to the incoming amino acids starts to build up against the amino acids in our own production). Inflammation formation gets out of control.

Let’s see a little closer to the inflammation in Hashimoto. Normally, when the baby is in the mother’s womb (intrauterine period), Th2 cells are the important items of the fetal immune system, the formation of the natural physiological intestinal cover after birth leads to a balance between Th2 / Th1, which starts with Th2 formation. However, the inflammatory process is triggered when the increase of Th2 is repeated due to the human error. Th2 activates macrophage and NK (IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL2 release). Th1, on the other hand, activates the immune system such as IgE, basophil, eosinophil, mast cells (IL4, IL5, IL9, and IL13). As a result, they increase the production of a number of inflammatory substances (Group II Prostaglandins, Group IV Leukotriene).

The decrease of bowel biologically active flora and increase of intestinal vascular permeability opens the door to many autoimmune diseases, not just Hashimoto.

Hashimoto is such a long-lasting inflammatory process. As a result, our own immune system again destroys our own thyroid. The human enters the DECADENCE process within the inflammation he produces with his own hand and desire.

  1. Insulin resistance and Hashimoto

There is insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome in 50% of the adult population. When you take these people carefully, it seems that almost all of them have frequent hunger, reactive hypoglycemia (blood sugar lowering).

Hypothyroidism is more common in patients with diabetes and metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance).

There is solidarity in our bodies. The normal range of blood sugar levels also affects the physiology of our thyroid hormones in the positive direction. From another point of view, normal functioning of the thyroid gland keeps blood sugar levels within normal limits.


Metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance) frequently causes fluctuations in blood sugar levels. In this case, the release of cortisol from stress hormones is increased. As a result, the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis slows down.

The effects of thyroid function suppression on glucose metabolism are as follows:

– Glucose is taken into the bloodstream and reduces its entry into the cell. As a result, blood sugar levels rise

-Increase blood glucose absorption. As a result, blood sugar drops. Frequent hunger starts.

– Reduce insulin response. As a result, glucose cannot be introduced into the cells and the value in the blood increases.

If thyroid hormone is low Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) begins to be indicated even though blood sugar levels are detected as normal on blood tests (constant fatigue, headache, constant hunger, restlessness, etc.) The cause is the drop of blood glucose into the cell. In this vicious cycle, cortisol is triggered as intracellular glucose is reduced. Elevated cortisol reduces thyroid function.


Hashimoto statements

Growth in the thyroid gland can be observed early in the disease. The thyroid gland is hard and painless when palpated (touched) by hand, the nodule is usually absent. As the disease progresses, the gland shrinks with the destruction.

Note: If the thyroid gland is large in hand, we can say that this patient is not Hashimoto thyroiditis.

We also mentioned it at the beginning of the topic; thyroid hormones are stored in the gland depending on thyroglobulin. When thyroid gland destruction begins, the bound thyroid hormones are released to the bloodstream and the levels of blood pressure increase. As a result, 10% of the patients have hyperthyroidism in the early stages of the disease (palpitation, nervousness, etc.). However, this is a temporary condition. If the destruction continues, the thyroid gland shrinks and becomes a fibrous tissue with loss of its characteristics. As a result, secreted thyroid hormones also decrease and hypothyroidism tabulation dominates.

As Hashimoto thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, it develops in the same underlying disease (Eg Type I DM, celiac, adrenal insufficiency, Behcet, systemic lupus, vitiligo etc.).

The most prominent complaints are:


Early Period

Hyperthyroidism specifications

Late Period

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

Feeling throat jam


Feeling of asphyxiation


Fast weight loss




Excessive sweating


Deeply constantly humid


Frequent outings


Frequent bowel movement


Disturbance of heat



Excessive weight


Constant sleep


Unrelated to the environment




Detection falls


Blurred vision




Irregularity in menstruation


Impotence / Sexual reluctance


Feeling extreme  cold


Morning fatigue


Swelling in face, under the eyes, hand, the feet





First of all, the patient must be questioned (anamnesis) and passed through the physical inspection without any details being missed. All risk factors, possible mechanisms of occurrence and treatment barriers should be monitored.

The deficiencies that can prepare the ground for the disease must be reviewed. For this reason some laboratory tests are absolutely required.

– Hemogram


-Iron, Ferritin, Iron

Bonding Capacity


– Zinc, Zinc binding

its capacity

-Vitamin B12


-Insulin (Hunger), Hunger- blood sugar


-CRP, RF, ES Speed


– Calcium, Phosphorus


-Alkaline Phosphatase


– Liver enzymes


-Total protein, albumin




– microscopic inspection of stool


-PTH, vitamin D


-Hand-wrist graphy


-Bone densitometry


-IgA, IgG, IgM


-Thyroid function tests


– Thyroid antibodies (TG, Anti Tg, Anti TPO)


— Autoantibodies (ANA, dsDNA, AMA, ASMA, LKM 1)




– Cranial MR


– Cervical MR


In the majority of cases (95%) in blood laboratory tests, antibodies against protein building blocks involved in thyroid hormone production and storage are detected (Antithyroglobulin, Anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO)).

Note: Sometimes, even though Hashimoto findings are shown in patients with biopsy, antibodies may not be detected in blood. The reason of this is that the immune system is so suppressed that it cannot produce antibodies.

If the antibody tests are normal, the amount of iodine in the urine must also be checked.

In addition to western medical diagnosis methods, some diagnostic methods should be applied within the understanding of eastern medicine.

  • It should be determined whether there is an inappropriate nutritional status.
  • Measurements of the energy and temperature ratings of body organs should be made.
  • Acupuncture diagnostic criteria should be checked (diagnosis by looking at the navel in the corpus, scanning of organ points in micro systems such as ears, diagnosis by looking at the tongue, detection of blockages by controlling energy meridians, radiostasis etc.)
  • In the osteopathic approach, posture will be inspected and other infrastructural problems will be sought.


Classical Treatment Approach

Expectation from the treatment: If I cannot heal the disease completely, let’s try to maintain normal daily life by suppressing symptoms at least.

Drugs used for this purpose

•       T4 Preparation

·         T3 Preparation

·         T4 + T3 Preparation

Dr. Ceyhun NURİ’s Approach to the Treatment:


  • The purpose of classical therapy is to supplement thyroid hormones. But reinforcement does not solve the underlying cause!!! If your vehicle is running out of oil, you will not be able to fix the situation if you keep adding oil. Giving Hormone supplementation to Hashimoto thyroiditis patients is such a situation. If you do not attempt to solve the cause of autoimmune reaction, you will lose your thyroid gland with other organs.

So do not forget the fact that Hashimoto’s disease is a name we give to the disorder of the thyroid gland, but the main problem is the wrong reaction of the immune system.

  • The first rule is that the body reactions will not be suppressed. Reason for overreaction is to be corrected. (Prevention of excessive stimulation of Auxiliary Th2 cells is one of the main targets in therapy. In addition, anti-inflammatory agents (IL-10, TGF-Beta) secreted by regulatory T cells reduce the inflammatory process and stop the allergic response by causing suppression of adjuvant Th2 cells.
  • Detailed inquiries (anamnesis) and physical inspection should be performed before proceeding to treat the disease without any details.
  • In order for the treatment to be successful, all the disruptive areas that impede the solution must be treated (scar, surgical tracks, tonsillitis, amalgam fill etc.).
  • Disruptive areas should be identified and quickly stabilized (amalgam fill will be removed, scars will be stabilized via fluid injection and acupuncture, etc.)
  • When treatment planning is done, it is necessary to show the treatment approach considering the four body (physical, emotional, subconscious, spirit) structures. If mind and subconscious of these patients will continue to remain as an area of constantly experiencing sad and psychological devastation, you cannot achieve success fully in the treatment even if you provide temporary reductions in complaints. What we need to do is re-programming the mind and subconscious to increase their resilience in the face of events, and clearing the subconscious pollution. Treatment success should be enhanced by strengthening the spiritual body. For this purpose, cognitive and behavioral therapy will be applied.
  • The deficit in the body will definitely go away. Iodine, selenium, zinc, magnesium, vitamin A deficiency, which plays an active role in the formation of thyroid hormones, will be covered with nutrients and preparations.
  • The blood circulation in the thyroid area is seriously affected negatively because of the narrowing and enlargement of vessels, especially due to autonomic nervous system dysfunction. At the point of this attenuation, especially cupping / leech application to the thyroid and other areas associated with the thyroid will cause rapid regression of complaints.
  • Acupuncture is a very serious and effective method for the development of inflammation.
  • Nutrition will be corrected (bowel and liver regeneration (repair) and detoxification (cleansing) will be provided.
  • Insulin resistance must be treated.
  • Magnetic field application should reduce neuronal irritation by rebalancing cell polarity and stability that has been impaired
  • By carefully evaluating all details taking part in the formation of the patient’s condition and complaints, personalized herbal prescriptions should be arranged.
  • No method alone can be successful. However, the patient will be healed on the basis of a common synthesis after evaluation by the physician who understands the Hashimoto background.




  1. The feeding pattern that increases the flame should quickly be avoided.
  2. A program to help organize the bowel and liver system should be started.
  3. The identified deficiencies will be resolved (D Vit, Iron, B Vit, etc.)
  4. Treatment of systems and genetic information flow will be started (phototherapeutic prescriptions)
  5. The body’s allergen and toxin load will be reduce (Cupping, Ozone application etc.)


We can gather our treatment target in the following way:

  1. Detoxification of the body, eventually the body (cleansing)
  2. System Regeneration (Repair)

III. Providing Genetic Information Flow (DNA Repair)




  • Check your intermediate neck region by yourself. Even in the slightest doubt, consult a doctor who will solve this work.
  • Weight multiplied by 30 cc water must be consumed (e.g. a person with 70 kg should drink 2100 ml per day, i.e. about 11 glasses of water)
  • Malnutrition of bakery products that trigger food intolerance and allergy should be reduced.
  • Black tea consumption should be reduced. Excess consumption of three glasses a day may exacerbate complaints.
  • Foods that will increase the level of melatonin should be increased (e.g. cabbage, almond, nuts, groundnut, cherry, cranberry, anise tea, fennel tea, chamomile tea)
  • The level of vitamin D should be kept at least 60 ng / ml, ideally 100 ng / ml.
  • Consumption of some nutrients, such as turmeric, ginger, grape seed (resveratrol), which reduce inflammatory processes and thus reduce histamine release, should be increased. At least 1 dessert eyebrow per day. Cereals, 1 sweet spoon turmeric, 1 sweet spoon ginger must be consumed.
  • Probiotic nutrition should be focused on. (Yogurt, Kefir). Alpha-1 Antitrypsin pulls down the Tumor Necrosis Factor levels and helps suppress inflammation in the bowel. The secretariat increases IgA production and increases intestinal surface defense. In addition, probiotics reduce the formation of antigen-stimulating antigens because they contribute to protein digestion in the intestine with some enzymes (proteases) that they secrete.
  • Omega 3 (Fish Oil). Patients with complaints of chronic inflammatory disease provide daily consumption as the sum of EPA + DHA is 2.5-3 gr.
  • Iodine deficiency must be eliminated. For this we have to create environments where we can breathe the sea air, mainly water is our iodine source, and consumption of meat and seafood should also be increased.
  • Swallow three pinches of dill three times a day.
  • It is a root plant that is effectively used in the treatment of almost any disease, including vitamins A, E, B1, B6 and many other minerals and antioxidants such as Calcium, Potassium, Chromium, Selenium and Zinc. At the beginning of the reasons for using Hashimoto is the flavonoids in the contents (the flavonoids are the strongest known antioxidants), but most importantly the function is similar to the effect of cortisone against inflammation (of course no side effects of the synthetic corticosteroid are visible here, It also does not react like extreme cortisol release after stress). As a result, the decline in inflation results in the lightness of the autoimmune reaction underlying the hashimoto. Consuming 1-2 cups of tea a day may be advisable. In short, the preparation of the tea is also useful to mention: the root is naturally hardened because it is used. For this reason, when preparing or purchasing tea, grind it at the time of purchase, or cut small pieces at home. According to the symptoms of the complaints and illness, add 1 to 1.5 sweet spoonful to a boiling water glass and boil this mixture for 8-10 minutes. You can eat hungry or eat after meals. You can also consume it in the form of liquorice syrup.
  • Increase consumption of olive oil. Vitamin E in it helps to resolve the inflammatory process by normalizing the body’s defense response (inhibiting IgE uptake and inhibiting leukotriene). Selenium supports the antioxidant effect.
  • We can get selenium from the groceries like sunflower seeds, fish (tones, salmon, sardines, etc.), mushrooms, eggs, turkey meat, chicken breast, veal etc.

Daily selenium supplementation should be at an average of 100 mcg.

Note: If hypothyroidism is due to iodine deficiency, selenium preparation will make the clinic worse. (Because it reduces thyroid peroxidase activity).
