What is the recommended or best supplement for Hypothyroidism?

I have underactive thyroid and I am tired all the time.
I eat lots of fruits and veg and I try (sometimes) to be active.
I want to start taking supplements that will boost my energy level and also any other recommended supplements for people like me.

  1. I am just on the verge and get the shakes etc from sugars and caffine- so I stay away- a huge help for me is protiens earlier in the day and more veges at night, and SOYMILK (fiber, vitamins and soy protien) I like Silk brand best-in with milk in grocery- very vanilla is good- I used to get an eye twitch too and such, also its helped my hot flashes! They also have gloucose tolerance factor vitamin/herb mixes on the market- do some research on homopathic medicines for yourself, then find a good store and a good brand or your wasting your money! Good Luck!

    DON’T take Synthroid!
    Chances are you are experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Try adding some natural progesterone. You can also try adding organic Iodine (be sure to research what kind!).

    Here is a little something I saw the other day….

    "Hypothyroid? Guess Again …

    The thyroid, the adrenals, and the ovaries. Closely connected, in a thousand ways. Another award-winning snap misdiagnosis of the 90s has been "hypothyroidism." To push Synthroid, a powerful thyroid mimicker, many women are told they are thyroid deficient, for the flimsiest of reasons.

    Fatigue is the usual complaint. Obesity is another.

    A borderline thyroid level in one blood test is enough to trigger a lifetime of problems, starting with a prescription for Synthroid. Perhaps the thyroid levels were just temporarily low when the blood sample was taken. Perhaps the thyroid was a little sluggish.

    Doctors have known for years that iodine is necessary for a functioning thyroid. Do doctors recommend that safe mineral supplement first before trying the overpowering drug Synthroid? Never. Most doctors don’t even look at blood levels of thyroid hormones at all; but diagnose hypothyroidism by symptoms only! (Lee, p147)

    No matter; once Synthroid is served up every day, your thyroid’s going night-night. And your problems are just beginning, because you’re now aboard the Drug Express. To say nothing of the hormonal confusion that is now created when every molecular message that the other glands send to the thyroid system requesting an answer is ignored.

    Empirically, who gets diagnosed hypothyroid, women or men? Let’s see, why would that be?

    Thyroid and estrogen are natural antagonists: opposite effects. Thyroid builds bone, estrogen stimulates bone loss. Thyroid stimulates metabolism and burns fat; estrogen stores fat. With estrogen dominance, thyroid function is inhibited, causing lower thyroid activity.

    This doesn’t necessarily mean the thyroid can’t do its job, like the doctor presumes. It just means with all the excess estrogen in the picture, thyroid hormone is kept in the background – another one of the body’s give-and-take feedback loops, about which we know so little. Again the sledgehammer arrogance comes barging onto the scene with the pretense that synthetic thyroid hormone – Synthroid – is going to "fix the problem."

    Check out the psychology here: consider the motivation for being diagnosed hypothyroid situation.

    1. The doctor is motivated because the patient is signing up for a life on Synthroid
    2. The patient is ready to believe it because her overeating and obesity are not her fault: it’s a hormone imbalance.

    Is that what ‘codependent’ means?"

    Synthroid/ Levoxyl/Levothroid (levothyroxine): These products only contain T4 hormone, they have no T3.

    Patients with hypothyroidism show greater improvements in mood and brain function if they receive treatment Armour thyroid rather than Synthroid. http://www.mercola.com/1999/archive/armour_thyroid.htm

    When a patient attempts to ask their physician for the natural hormone they are usually ridiculed and made to feel stupid that they would request an inferior hormone product.

    The common argument the physicians give is that the synthetic provides steady hormone levels. What the doctors tend to overlook is that the vast majority of people can not convert the T4 to the active form of thyroid which is T3.

    I am not a doctor but I think kelp and vitamin B1.
    kelp is seaweed, but you can also get iodine from iodised salt.
    vitamin B1 is needed for promoting intelligence and initiative, and is usually added to commercial bread to replace what is lost during processing. it can be found in meat, and in edible brewers yeast.
    I think fruit and veg are not good sources of energy, they just help balance your diet. you should eat some grains, white rice is easily tolerated, and you should eat meat!

  4. I TAKE A PRODUCT CALLED LIMU MOUI. IT IS BROWN SEAWEED GROWN IN TONGA. IT IS UNLIKE OTHER SEAWEED LIKE FROM JAPAN BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDUSTRY IN TONGA AND THE PRODUCT IS TOTALLY SAFE, WITH NO POLLUTANTS FROM INDUSTRY. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT CANNOT BE GROWN IN LAND BASED PLANTS…
    MINE IS TAKEN FOR A RARE BLOOD DISEASE AND IT IS CONTROLLING IT JUST FINE.
