The thyroid gland is definitely the most important gland in the human body. It produces highly important hormones which regulate our metabolic rate and the ability of our body to burn fat, while also controlling our temperature and a variety of other functions. Due to these and other benefits for our health, keeping the thyroid important is of vital importance.
In general, people can suffer from 2 different kinds of thyroid problems – hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). Both conditions manifest through different symptoms and can become a big problem if left untreated.
Hypothyroidism can cause dry skin, fatigue, weight gain and loss of focus, while hyperthyroidism causes rapid weight loss, irregular heartbeat, diarrhea and high blood pressure.
Doctors usually treat both problems with medications, but due to the side-effects they might offer, it’s better to take a natural approach. Targeting the thyroid with medications may cause it to produce a bigger or insufficient amount of thyroid hormones, which can cause a lot of problems. Luckily, for you, we have a simple natural remedy which can get your thyroid in order and improve its health.
How does it work?
The remedy is actually a juice made of cinnamon, ginger, cranberries and orange and lemon juice. All the ingredients contain important vitamins and minerals which can restore the health of your thyroid and maintain the hormonal balance in your body. Here’s how to prepare it:
- 7 cups water
