The thyroid gland is a vital hormone gland: It plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of the human body.

It helps to regulate many body functions by constantly releasing a steady amount of thyroid hormones into the bloodstream.

Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer.

The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones.

Recent research has shown that people can increase thyroid hormone naturally.

For example, eating a portion of Essential Fats at every meal which includes extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, raw unsalted nuts and seeds, avocados and oily fish, will improve thyroid hormone levels as our cell receptors become more able to take up thyroid hormone.

Apples, pears, plums and citrus fruits are abundant with pectins, which help with detoxifying the body of mercury – one of the most critical metals that have been connected to thyroid problems.
