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.

4 Reasons to Eat Cucumbers to Support Thyroid Health

Cucumbers are another important food to include in your thyroid healing “clean” diet.

They

  • strengthen the adrenals and
  • the kidneys while
  • flushing toxins created by viruses from the bloodstream.
  • Cucumbers also hydrate the lymphatic system. Our lymphatic system can be found at various places around our body, but some of the most important lymph nodes are the ones that surround the thyroid in the neck. We want to protect this part of our lymphatic system because of its close proximity to the thyroid.

People who are too tired and sick to exercise will benefit greatly from increasing their consumption of cucumbers. This healing food will support your lymphatic system in lieu of the exercise you are not quite ready for. And they’re so refreshing and yummy!

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

There are just 16 calories in a cup of cucumber with its peel (15 without).

You will get about

  • 4 % of your daily potassium,
  • 3 % of your daily fiber and
  • 4 % of your daily vitamin C
  •  small amounts of vitamin K,
  • magnesium,
  • potassium,
  • manganese and
  • vitamin A

RECIPE FOR A COOL BREAK

Add to a salad, eat alone, toss one in your smoothy or cut up a cucumber, leave seeds in or remove, and drop into a glass of filtered water with ice for a cool refreshing, healthy drink! Buy organic!
