Happy Thyroid Tips.Balance Your Underactive Thyroid Naturally
Basic Thyroid Information
The thyroid secretes hormones with funny names like T4 and T3.
triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4)
Thyroid hormones have 2 basic components.
- Amino Acid Tyrosine
T4 is Tyrosine with 4 iodine molecules. It is the inactive hormone.
T3 is the active form and can be used immediately by the cells.
Without some basic nutrients, the thyroid doesn’t work well.
The two we listed so far:
We will discuss many more.
Hypothyroidism means too little thyroid hormone.
Also called underactive thyroid.

Get Your Thyroid Tested!
- Have your thyroid function properly evaluated with a COMPLETE Thyroid Panel (Free T3, Free, T4, TSH, thyroid antibodies, Reverse T3).
- You may need medication and if you do, I recommend desiccated thyroid medication along with following the recommendations below.
- If you doctor will not order all of these tests (they often only order TSH which is inadequate), then you can order your own lab testing from DirectLabs.
Nutrients that support the thyroid gland
- Selenium (Helps convert T4 to T3, supplement or eat 3 Brazil nuts each day!)
- Magnesium (about 400-600mg of Magnesium Glycinate at bedtime)
- L-Tyrosine (needed to make T4, eat seafood, kelp, seaweed)
- B12 (40% of those with hypothyroidism are deficient in B12)
- Vitamin D3 with K2
- Fish Oil or Cod Liver Oil
- Vitamin C
If you don’t want to have to deal with 9 supplements, see below for a plan that will simplify but get you what you need.
Essential oils that support thyroid function
- Endoflex Blend (see below)
- Frankincense (try 1 drop morning and night topically)
