Hello Nehal,

The thyroid gland secretes hormones that help to maintain the brain, heart, muscles, etc. An overactive or underactive thyroid gland leads to thyroid disorders. an underactive thyroid gland results in hypothyroidism. It is a lifestyle-related disorder that occurs when we load our body with wrong foods like saturated fats, refined sugars, etc.
It becomes difficult to cure the problem and lose weight if we continue to load our body with such wrong foods. So, it is essential to make some lifestyle changes and dietary changes. 

Diet to follow- 

  • Have a variety of fresh, seasonal, and locally available fruits and vegetables. 
  • Eat sprouts, salads, and dry fruits. 
  • Have pulses, nuts, and beans.
  • Take antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries, amla, orange, or lemon. 
  • Drink plenty of water during the day, approximately 8 to 10 glasses of water to be hydrated. 

Diet to avoid- 

  • Avoid processed, packaged, and preserved foods. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal foods as they are not meant for our human digestive system and lead to the accumulation of toxins in the body. 
  • Avoid tea and coffee. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 


Exercising and yoga are very essential for good blood circulation in the body.

  • Perform 12 sets of suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do pranayam regularly, specially anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Do plank for 5 minutes. 
  • Take sunrays daily in the morning as it will provide the body with Vitamin D which is essential for the good health of bones, teeth, and muscles. 


Sleeping pattern is very important for a good circadian rhythm which affects hormonal balance and hence the functioning of the whole body.

Hence, it is very important to have proper sleep. So, take proper sleep of at least 7-8hours daily. 

Thank you

Dear Nehal,

Thanks for sharing your concern with us!

Please know that as per Nature Cure, toxic overload is the root cause of all diseases. Toxins are a byproduct of metabolism and also get added due to wrong lifestyle choices. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in the nose, eyes, and genitals, etc. However, when there is insufficient or faulty elimination, there is a toxic overload in the body. Toxic overload often leads to hormonal imbalance there are issues like thyroid (hypo/hyper). As per Nature Cure, one can reverse this state of imbalance by getting back in sync with the natural laws of living. 

Adopting a natural lifestyle will help you in reclaiming your health by cleansing your body from within and weight loss comes as a pleasant side-effect of this process.  If you need help in doing so you could register yourself for Wellcure's Weight Loss program and get a personal consultation from our Natural Health Care coach.
