I have created a hypothyroid treatment program, for you to overcome your symptoms of low thyroid function and problems with inflammation, aging, and disease. 

The health recommendations presented in this program is very different and challenges many dogmatic beliefs about nutrition and health. The information is based on the research of Dr. Ray Peat, a leading expert on how to use food and lifestyle to support thyroid function and good hormonal balance. 

The hypothyroid treatment program consists of 17 modules and teaches you how to select and combine foods that provide your body with the best sources of nutrients for optimal metabolism and good hormonal balance. The typical modern diet and most healthy diets include substances that directly inhibit the thyroid function; by eliminating these and instead basing the diet on energy supportive foods, your body is strengthened and your thyroid function is increased. 

Apart from diet information, the program includes several other health topics, including information on which nutritional supplements are useful for supporting cellular energy production, and which nutritional supplements are directly counteracting your metabolic rate. In addition, the program contains information on thyroid supporting and antistress light therapy and hormonal support compounds including thyroid replacement therapy.
