Thyroid Health – The Connection Between Inflammation, Weight Loss And Healing Your Thyroid

One of the many nasty symptoms of hypothyroidism and/or Hashimoto’s Disease is weight gain.

Changing your diet and lifestyle to heal your body – so that it can let go of (lose) the weight – will help your thyroid and thyroid hormonal system immensely.

Why?

Because weight loss, even moderate, can cause significant regression in pro-inflammatory messenger activity. As weight is lost, fat cells shrink and begin to release normal amounts of pro-inflammatory messengers. Macrophages stop being turned on, and begin to leave the fat as well.

With less macrophage activity, less TNFa and IL-6 are released. Finally, as weight is lost and the overall grade of inflammation reduces, the foods which can cause an inflammatory response in unhealthy individuals start to be better regulated by our body, causing less inflammation or perhaps none at all!

WHAT TO DO?

Eat a clean diet.

No processed foods, artificial sweeteners or anything not raw, real and ready to eat, like fruit, vegetables, etc.

Our S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Diet is literally killing us. And, we are spreading it all over the planet. Can you say McD’s in any language? Yup!
