More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Thyroid Health: Make a Vitamin and Mineral Packed Juice Recipe

See this Super Healthy Juice Recipe  (Photo by Greg Lindstrom)

I saw this article in our local Longmont Times Call paper today. I look everywhere for good ideas.


This recipe has spinach – raw spinach is not good for us thyroid condition people.

However, you can still use spinach if you blanch (dump into rolling boiling water) for a minute or two which would be like steaming it,  or just steam it until limp, knocking out most of the chemistry that is not good for us. Then, just put into a blender with the juiced liquid (as it will be pretty limp and may not run through a juicer well). Or, switch out spinach for the greenest fresh, greenest lettuce options you can find.

It makes a lot and you’ll need an extractor or other juicing machine to make it (to separate the pulp from the juice),  but the nutrition is worth it. Should help anyone’s body in all good ways!


I don’t recommend juicing often. It’s better for us to use a blender for “smoothies” to keep the pulp in, juicing takes it out. We need the pulp for fiber and nutrition. Plus, juicing, especially with fruits, leaves you with a glass of fruit-sugar, also not good for us.

The point here being, there are a lots of ways to get great nutrition every day. Explore many ways.

  • I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in
    Firefox. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    This juicing would not work for hypothyroidism as it contains raw spinach – a no no.

      Thank, Fair for the heads up. I updated the post. After writing hundreds of posts and articles, class handouts, etc. it’s nice to have a second set of eyes out there to see things I wrote in the past that surely can be updated for the best information.

      Thank you!
