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.

Are You Getting the 10 Nutrients Essential to Thyroid Health?

Are you getting the necessary nutrients to heal and support your thyroid health?

It’s not all about one pill a day to balance your thyroid hormones. You must be on a specific diet and make sure that within that diet you are getting the right nutrients. You may also will need some added supplements depending on your bodies needs.

According to Dr. Peter Osborne, the clinical director of Town Center Wellness in Sugar Land, Texas,  doctor of chiropractic and a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist, he has helped thousands of patients recover from chronic painful conditions with diet and supplements.


His research shows that your brain and thyroid have to work together for T4 and T3 production. Dr. Osborne says, that there are ten nutrients required for your thyroid to get from your brain creating TSH and stimulating your thyroid gland to produce T4 to T3 and then to activate your cellular metabolic rate. The ten nutrients are:

  1. Protein
  2. Magnesium
  3. B-12
  4. Zinc
  5. Iodine
  6. B2
  7. Vitamin C
  8. Selenium
  9. Vitamin D
  10. Vitamin A

If you are diagnosed with hypothyroidism the hormone replacement pill / medication may help initially but over time as you maintain micronutrient deficiencies your thyroid is not truly going to improve.


Micronutrients are essential for the proper functioning of every system in the body and are vital for good health. There are two classes of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals. Each vitamin and mineral has a specific role in bodily function.

And, with any autoimmune disease, like a thyroid condition or Hashimoto’s disease, you’re going to need high doses of some vitamins and minerals to get your body just back to “normal”, then adjusted again to keep it there when you can’t always get enough from foods.


Makes sure to ask your Thyroid Trained Practitioner for lab tests to find out what micronutrients you may be deficient in.

Are you eating the right diet for Hypothyroidism and/or Hashimoto’s disease?
