23 Foods to help Hyperthyroidism and Graves’ Disease

Diet is a big selling word worldwide..There is a diet fro pretty much everything.Most of us suffering with thyroid problems believe that eating the right food or avoiding the wrong one will cure us from hyperthyroidism or Graves’ Disease.

This is true and not really true. No matter what you eat the next 24 hours it will not cure your hyperthyroidism overnight. But maintaining a proper diet in a long-term plan will cut a lot of your symptoms, will help your immune system to fight the over active thyroid and basically will improve in natural way the performance of your thyroid.

Accordingly, any food that naturally inhibits the thyroid overproduction is good, especially if you are diagnosed with overactive thyroid/ hyperthyroidism. These foods are called goitrogens, they can act as antithyroid drugs (like PTU and methimazole).

This is a short list of foods that may help your hyperthyroidism, some of them are called cruciferous vegetables, some of them are just fruits that do a similar job.

Cruciferous vegetables and goitrogenic fruits:

  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Mustard greens
  • Rutabaga
  • Turnips
  • Millet
  • Radishes
  • Spinach
  • Mizuna
  • Garden cress
  • Water cress
  • Daikon
  • Wasabi
  • Bok choy
  • Komatsuna
  • Rapini
  • Soybean and soy products, including tofu
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches


The above listed vegetables and fruits are enough to cover any food diversity for a week, you can mix and match, add meat, or river fish (this is not dangerous as it does not contain iodine), or anything else that comes to your mind.

Why not give a boost to the thyroid medication? But yes, just eating the above foods will not be enough..

Please, feel free to share any recipe, or diet suggestion, or idea you may have regarding hyperthyroidism diet.

Aloe Vera for Graves’ Disease/ Thyroid Eye Disease

Did you know that nearly every known dis-ease is caused from inflammation? Including our Hyperthyroidism and Graves’ Disease, not to mention Thyroid Eye Disease... It just so happens that the ancient Aloe Vera plant has turned out to be one of the most extraordinary anti-inflammatory plants in all of creation.

 Apparently no matter what started your inflammation and pain, the natural ingredients within Aloe Vera is bursting with anti-inflammatory ability plus all this is based on real science to back it up. Aloe Vera is about 99% pure energized water “intelligently designed” by Mama Nature to contain more than 75 key ingredients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and miracle super sugars. If you are looking for a simple way to improve your overall health and well being, including your immune system (and we need that most of all!), Aloe Vera provides you with a potent smorgasbord of helpful cellular nutrition.

As you already know I am experimenting a lot with all kinds of natural products, and I am a “one man” laboratory, needless to say. I’ve never recommended anything to anyone that I haven’t tried or researched thoroughly, it’s just prefer to be sure what I am talking about.

 So, since I got rid off Graves’ Disease several years ago, I was asking myself how do I keep it away. Yes, I did changed many things, my life style especially, but still, the nutritional and diet part wasn’t covered. I wanted to eat everything without any concerns and be as healthier as possible (with this dirty environment around us!). I experimented with a few natural products and supplements, but the best results I got from using a few products containing Aloe Vera. It’s not that you never heard of that, but still, we are not doing it, right?

 I was also looking for the most natural/ organic products or company, not any product in general, that I can afford and will not cost me a fortune. I was introduced by a friend of mine to the Aloe Vera family, and since then, 2 years now, I am using only their products, because I know that they are 100% natural, even the stabilizers used in the cosmetics.

Today, I’m trying to put only natural products in my mouth (I mean toothpaste, food is another topic here), I even use Aloe Vera to wash my clothes and clean my house,  the shampoo and conditioners are too with Aloe Vera,  face creams, and of course the Aloe Vera juice (there are 4 different to choose from- and not the one sold in GNC, sorry), also herbal formulas, vitamins and supplements. Everything that I need for my health and cosmetics I prefer to buy it with Aloe Vera. But listen- not any Aloe Vera…a special one.

What I actually did is that I changed my shopping store- instead of going to Publix, Walmart or Kroger, or any other general store for that matter, I shop from one company and they have a wide variety of products, for practically anything you and your family need to stay healthy.  They are very economic also, you can use the “fluoride free” toothpaste for 4 months or more, 1 bottle of Aloe Vera gel for 2 months (if you have a particular health problem- then you need 1 cup every day), the face cream for 5-6 months…

 Since I am using these products I haven’t practically been sick even with the occasional flu.  I even didn’t notice that until recently, when I was cleaning the drawer with over-the counter medications and I noticed that I haven’t used them at all. So here we go, I’ll stop talking, you give it a try..

 Feel free to browse the products, they have offices world wide, so if you live in Australia, or  United Kingdom or  Malaysia, it will be delivered by the offices there so you don’t pay oversea shipping fees. If you don’t know what to order, send me an email with your symptoms and complains and I’ll tell you exactly what you need, or what I would use..

 The other good thing is that if you decide to become a distributor you actually get paid to shop, and you’ll receive 15% off immediately of all products, life time, no other requirements (there is a minimum order requirement, but it’s different for different countries.

 2. Forever A-Beta- CarE (contains Selenium and all anti- oxidants listed in my previous email)

 3. Forever Arctic Sea ® (can be used as a substitute for Flax seed oil)

 4. Forever Vision® – improves the general eye condition, a lot!

 5. Aloe Moisturizing Lotion-  This unique lotion has outstanding moisturizing properties for the skin;

 6. Aloe Vera Tooth Gel- I love this tooth gel, as it contains no fluoride (which we well know has a good contribution to Hyperthyroidism).

 7. Forever Alluring Eyes®. (eye cream). Keep in a refrigerator for best results.

 8. Forever Immublend- great product for supporting the immune system, especially helpful when that immune system is not doing well.

 9. Aloe Vera Gelly (I use that refrigerated for under my eyes, or any other skin irritations), helps puffiness, at least mine..
