I have just recently been diagnosed hypothyroid and feel really really dreadful , i feel like a shuffling corpse,,
I don't over eat as i have a hernia that thankfully stops me, but I wonder if you can heal yourself with certain foods and drinks with all the things that ones body needs..
I don,t know what these foods are as i have generally eaten a healthy diet and suddenly with this hypothyroidism I put on two stone and I was heavier all over , and that made me really miserable as I had just before this brought myself a whole new wardrobe as i had managed to stay at 8 stone instead of wavering between 7-8 stone and that was a bit of a problem, now all of the sudden I am ten stone and I don't over eat, Im not a foody ,I eat to live not live to eat!!
However I also hate taking drugs and recently i decided not to take the painkillers Ive been prescribed as the thought that i couldn't move without taking a painkiller to get through the days horrendous to me.
However the pain without the painkillers is excruciating but i wanted to give my kidneys a break as i have been having to urinate every 40 mins through the night,,
its only the first night and although Im shuffling about like a 105 yr old and every part of me feels like ive been in a car crash i didn't have to go to the loo so much.
I have been trying to look for healthy foods that heal ones thyroid, and i cant find a list that is clear enough to follow.
Can anyone tell me what foods are good for under active thyroids and what supplements other than b 12 and vit d and selenium that one can take to help bring the energy back without putting on shed loads of weight?
