There are some foods that slow the thyroid and block it from producing thyroid hormones. When the following foods (called goitrogens because they have chemicals that lower thyroid function) are eaten raw, they slow the thyroid (Cooking these foods inactivates their anti-thyroid properties.):
Cauliflower or any vegetable in the broccoli family
Soy (isoflavones block iodine, important nutrient for a healthy thyroid)
Supplements of iodine, selenium, zinc, vitamins B, D, E help the thyroid function at an optimal rate if HYPOthyroidism (low-functioning thyroid gland) is the problem. In India's Ayurvedic medicine, guggul has been used for centuries to regulate the thyroid naturally without the side effects of medications.
