Is There an Alternative Treatment for Hypothyroidism?

BiochemNordic presents an alternative treatment for hypothyroidism.

Our alternative treatment is not just a quick fix, instead, it is a health method built on a deep understanding of how the body works on the biochemical level.

Our health alternative treatment for hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances includes BiochemNordic’s:

  • Thyroid promoting diet
  • Thyroid supporting vitamins, minerals, and herbs
  • Natural hormonal balancing compounds (pregnenolone, and progesterone therapy)
  • Natural desiccated thyroid glandular products, or a correct thyroid medication if you have a prescription from your doctor. 

Our notion is that the gap between the body’s resources and the demands placed on it from the environment creates disease, thus harmful degenerative processes occurs instead of repair and healing when there is low thyroid function and thus lack of cellular energy production. The aim of our health services is to shift your body to a higher energy state, with good thyroid function and healthy hormonal balance, where repair and healing can take place. Our hypothyroid treatment program is our main product and goes into detail about our diet and health principles for treating hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances.

Why is the thyroid gland so important?

The thyroid gland lies in the front of the throat, and secrets a combination of two hormones; about one-third T3 (triiodothyronine), which is the active thyroid hormone and about two-third T4 (thyroxine), which is a storage hormone. T4 can be turned into T3 in the tissues, mainly the liver, making the liver able to regulate the thyroid function.

The active thyroid hormone T3 controls metabolism and cellular energy production. Low cellular energy production makes the body unable to overcome the demands placed on it from the environment. In the low cellular energy state, the body loses structure and control and lets harmful degenerative processes occur.  Thus low thyroid function has devastating consequences for the body, creating many different symptoms as the body’s tissues are not functioning optimally. 

Who is Dr. Ray Peat?

BiochemNordic’s hypothyroid treatment method is based on Dr. Ray Peat, who for more than 40 years has researched the interactions between diet, hormones, thyroid function, and health.

I have used Dr. Ray Peat’s thyroid healing method to overcome my own hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalance.

Dr. Ray Peat’s diet and health approach are very different from other health approaches out there. The key notion of Dr. Ray Peat is that thyroid function is crucial to good health, as it controls cellular energy production. Low thyroid function leads to degeneration and disease, as the cells of your body are not functioning optimally.

If you want to fully understand Dr. Ray Peat’s hypothyroid treatment method our hypothyroid treatment package is for you. It contains our hypothyroid treatment program and two important guides.

What Is The Best Diet For Hypothyroidism?

The normal western diet and most health diets out there include foods that directly suppress the thyroid function and cellular energy production.

The principle of our thyroid supporting diet advice is to base your daily diet on thyroid supporting foods and eliminate foods that directly inhibits cellular energy production, thereby optimizing your metabolism. 

Our diet principles are based on the research of Dr. Ray Peat. In our Hypothyroid Treatment Program, you can read about all Dr. Ray Peat’s diet recommendations. 

You can also get a short overview of our thyroid promoting diet advice in our Short Thyroid Diet Program. 

What vitamins minerals and herbs can help my thyroid function?

Sometimes a thyroid supporting diet is not enough to increase your thyroid function and balance your hormones. In this case, thyroid supporting supplements can be added to further help your thyroid recovery. 

My hypothyroid treatment method, therefore, includes vitamins, minerals, and herbs that are useful in a thyroid supportive lifestyle.

Do I need a Thyroid Supplement?

If your metabolic rate is still low, after implementing our diet and nutritional supplement advice, using either a thyroid medication or non-prescription supplements can help restore the thyroid function. 

Most people diagnosed with low thyroid function/hypothyroidism are prescribed Levothyroxine (T4). However, it is important to remember that the human thyroid gland produces 2/3 T4 and  1/3 T3. The active thyroid hormone is T3 whereas T4 is a storage hormone, that is converted to T3 mainly the liver. BiochemNordic’ recommendation is to use a combination of T4 and T3, simulating the function of the human thyroid gland. Importantly we are not prescribing medication, but we can inform you about the best choice for thyroid medication as well as non-prescription thyroid supplements. 

Module 16 of our hypothyroid treatment program gives detailed information about the human thyroid system, thyroid blood test, thyroid replacement therapy, including the importance of T3 and the problems with using T4 only.

Our thyroid supplement guide gives you information on reliable brands of non-prescription thyroid support supplements, which can be very helpful if you do not have a prescription for thyroid or you which to avoid medication. 

Do I need further Hormonal support?

Increasing thyroid function too quickly can result in unpleasant side effects for some people, especially if they have been hypothyroid for a long time. 

In order to avoid these symptoms, it is often helpful to supplement with progesterone and or pregnenolone in order to support the body’s natural anti-aging and anti-stress systems, while increasing metabolism. Progesterone and pregnenolone are produced naturally by the body and can provide great relieve for people with estrogen dominance and high levels of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin. 

In our hypothyroid treatment program, you can learn more about symptoms of low pregnenolone and progesterone, as well as how you can support your own synthesis of these hormones. In our hormonal support guide, you will get concrete product recommendations for pregnenolone and progesterone as well as information on how you find your daily dosage of these hormonal support supplements. 

Progesterone and Pregnenolone are natural hormones that support thyroid function

How Can Thyroid Consultation help me?

Increasing your thyroid function using BiochemNordic’s thyroid supporting health principles are not always straight forward, and working with Benedicte Mai Lerche MSC Ph.D. is an important part of your thyroid healing process. 

Changing your diet to promote your thyroid function can sometimes be tricky and individual adjustments of my diet advice are often necessary.

Taking thyroid medication or a thyroid supplement is not a do-it-yourself project. Your body might react negatively if you do not start upon a thyroid replacement therapy the right way.

You should have a knowledgeable counselor to help you create a specialized natural thyroid treatment program.

Please keep in mind that even if you have been able to successfully resolve your thyroid problem with supplements or dietary changes, you possibly still have periodic issues and diet and supplements adjustments often need to be made as your body starts healing and your metabolism increases.
