Proper nutrition is a key element to achieving thyroid health.

This recipe has the foods, herbs, and supplements that will help you repair your thyroid gland and balance your hormones.

    This would not be good for me since my body doesn’t respond well to ashwagandha..I get that adverse reaction after two weeks of use causing my blood pressure to go extremely low

      That’s good, Cindy, that you know that ashwagandha has that reaction for you. The recipe will certainly still work if you take it out. If you have any other herbs that you have found work better for you, they can put in this recipe instead. For example, rhodiola is one that works well in place of ashwagandha. That’s the beauty of this recipe. The herbs, nuts, and other ingredients are interchangeable with what works best for you.

      If you do try other ingredients in here, let us know how it goes.
