Thyroid diet
By Benedicte Lerche, Biochemist MSc PhD

My hypothyroid treatment blog provides ideas for obtaining optimal health by increasing thyroid function. My key notion is that good thyroid function is essential to good health as the thyroid gland controls the energy production in each cell of the body. 

My focus is to use diet, supplements, and lifestyle to improve thyroid function and cellular energy production as well as support the natural anti-stress hormones, thereby shifting the body from degeneration and disease to healing and repair.

My health perspective is inspired by the research of Dr. Ray Peat. I have used Dr. Ray Peat’s health principles to overcome my own hypothyroidism (under active thyroid function) and with this blog, I aim at spreading the knowledge of his unique hypothyroid treatment method, so you too can use Dr. Ray Peat’s health research to overcome your symptoms of low thyroid function and hormonal problems.
