Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is the best way to address hypothyroidism?

Most hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's, it's an autoimmune. And the key mineral that you would wanna take is not iodine, it's selenium. Selenium helps you convert, but also you need to make sure you have no gluten in the diet. Gluten really can mimic certain things and mimic the thyroid, so your body then will attack it as a foreign thing. And it kind of makes things worse, basically, not to mention messes with your gut.

There's several other things you need to do, but it's really not a thyroid problem. It's a secondary problem. It's an immune problem. So if you keep treating it as a thyroid and just take Synthroid or T4 or whatever, and wonder why you don't get better, it could be because you're treating the symptom and not the underlying root problem. Which really, with Hashimoto's, you want better conversion of that T4 to T3, the active form of the thyroid hormone. I have a lot of videos on it so you can go into that and do a deep dive.
