9 Thyroid supplements Every Hypothyroid Patient Should Consider Using

1577 ratings | 89406 views
Thyroid supplements (if used correctly) can help boost your thyroid function, help with weight loss and help you feel better. Recommended thyroid supplements to enhance thyroid function: - For thyroid hormone production and conversion: https://www.restartmed.com/product/thyroid-adrenal-reset-complex/ + https://www.restartmed.com/product/t3-conversion-booster/ - For hair loss: https://www.restartmed.com/product/thyroid-hair-regrowth-complex/ - For weight management: https://www.restartmed.com/product/gut-bomb-350-billion/ + https://www.restartmed.com/product/functional-fuel-complete/ - For gut health: https://www.restartmed.com/product/ultra-biotic-x100/ - For energy and adrenal health: https://www.restartmed.com/product/thyroid-adrenal-reset-complex/ + https://www.restartmed.com/product/power-b-complex/ The problem comes with knowing WHICH supplements to take and at WHAT dose. It takes over 13 nutrients to create thyroid hormone, convert T4 to T3 and sensitize the cellular receptors to T3. Many thyroid supplements cram all of these nutrients into a supplement and call it "good". This is the WRONG approach to take. Instead basing your supplementation off of the needs of your body is far superior. That means using lab work and other markers to find what nutrients you need in what doses. 9 Thyroid supplements that I find most hypothyroid patients are deficient in: 1. Vitamin B12 - Thyroid hormone is involved in the proper absorption of thyroid hormone. See the video for a complete list of symptoms. Repleting low vitamin B12 is best done through sublingual or intramuscular​ injections. 2. Adrenal support - Most thyroid patients also have issues with cortisol dysregulation. If you have advanced adrenal fatigue most patients do better on adrenal glandulars. For more mild disease consider using adrenal adaptogens. If your cortisol is elevated consider using phosphatidylserine. 3. Zinc - Low levels of zinc can cause issues with your skin and issue with hair growth. Adding zinc boosts immune function, T4 to T3 conversion and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Make sure to supplement with zinc bound to picolinic acid. 4. Iron - This is what I consider a "Goldilocks" nutrient in that you don't want TOO much or TOO little. Unfortunately, most doctors look for iron deficiency anemia and don't necessarily jus treat iron deficiency unless anemia accompanies it. Use these optimal levels to supplement with iron. 5. Magnesium - Hypothyroidism alters magnesium and low levels of magnesium can lead to issues like depression, anxiety and other changes like muscle cramps or restless leg syndrome. Replace low levels with magnesium glycinate, magnesium citrate if you have constipation or magnsium threonate if you have neurological issues. 6. Selenium - This nutrient is involved in the thyroid conversion process. Not only that but supplementing has been shown to reduce TPO antibodies and boost the immune system. In addition, using iodine with selenium can help reduce negative side effects. 7. Probiotics - Up to 20% of thyroid conversion happens in the gut and inflammation can reduce this number. Hypothyroidism sets up the gut for imbalances that lead to inflammation. Using probiotics can help improve your GI function. 8. Digestive enzymes - Hypothyroidism leads to low stomach acid which can predispose patients to malabsorption of certain nutrients. Using enzymes can help digest your food, increase nutrient absorption and if taken in between meals may promote the breakdown of immune complexes. 9. Iodine - If used correctly iodine can be helpful in boosting thyroid function. The thyroid hormone is made up of iodine moieties and low levels of iodine can reduce the amount of functioning thyroid hormone in the body.

Wonderful , I live in Pakistan and it seems doctors in here don't know anything about treating the thyroid patient. I am greatful for this info
Ro X (26 days ago)
What a great doctor! Most doctors won't even consider deficiencies r nutrition because they are not trained that way. It takes an open minded doctor to even start considering these things, and these great doctors are so rare!

Excellent video. Have you ever thought about vitamin D? I have a vitamin D deficiency and hypothyroidism. I'm on 7000 IU a day and an endo monitors me. Vitamin D deficiency saps my energy, gives me depression, makes me gain weight, and also gives me bone pain. If my level doesn't go up next Friday, my endo will have to prescribe vitamin D for me.

I don't have enough money to buy all of these and have some at home. I was wondering which supplements are the most important? Right now I am taking B-Complex from the store and Vitamin D. I'm going to take to my endocrinologist about the adrenals because I feel like I'm going crazy all of the time. People wonder why I get so much anxiety and paranoia with my Hypothyroidism.
Roots, Bloody Roots (2 months ago)
Thanks for responding! I have Hypothyroidism and right now I take my Levothyroxine at night and I take B-Complex, Fish oil, Turmeric curcumin, and Vitamin D all together after I eat food.
Dr. Westin Childs (2 months ago)
Yeah, that should be fine.
Roots, Bloody Roots (2 months ago)

Dr. Westin Childs (2 months ago)
The "best" supplements really depend on your body and your needs! For instance, you might put preference on adrenal supplements if that seems to be causing you the most issues right now.

Alice Borghoff (2 months ago)
I’m taking 100mcg of Synthroid, if I asked my doctor about this, she would disregard any of this. I wouldn’t have a clue if I should take any of this. Do I decide on my own what supplements I should take?

Dr. Westin Childs Thank you for getting back to me. I appreciate your promote reply. I will ask, if she doesn’t think it’s necessary I will ask my Internist. Wish you were in Yuma!
Dr. Westin Childs (2 months ago)
Best case scenario is that you work with your current doctor to find out what you actually need. Many people do take supplements on their own without the assistance of their physician but it's always better to have guidance if possible.

A question for you Dr Childs. Years ago, I had to have a CT scan involving a contrast medium. I was told I may feel an 'inner warmth' reaction, which I did, not unpleasant. However, for me, an unexpected side effect, was that I felt absolutely terrific for a couple of days afterwards. Like I'd been given energiser batteries! I've been tested for Thyroid issues and always come within 'normal' range, even though I have so many of the symptoms but for a couple of days I felt like I used to. Any doctor I asked about this, laughed at the idea it could be due to the Iodine. Your thoughts? I'm sad to say that even private docs here in Spain tend to diagnose by very limited blood testing and very much judge results on the 'you're within normal' numbers. My theory is that maybe I used to operate on the higher end of the spectrum and that now I don't feel as great on the lower end...
Dr. Westin Childs (4 months ago)
Iodine is required for thyroid function and if you don't get it in your diet you will become deficient slowly over time.

Aloha and Mahalo!!! Thank you!  You are Awesome!  I am so happy!  Doc- I have been sick for years, suffering, desperately needing answers so i can be on my road to recovery. It can be very complicating to get everything you need and in the right form and order, etc now i know what i need and thankyou i can inderstand the thyroid function more abd what supplement for what in detail-very appreciated!  About 8 months ago my health took a scary turn and im fighting for my life! Thanks for your help!!! It makes me so mad how many different docs with different specialties over the years did not connect my specific health issues to Hashimotos HypoThyrodism while i was studying my health for more answers, i figured out that my serious symptoms were directly connected to it! So i am learning all i can! The docs didnt take me seriously and treated me terrible, said i was overreacting and said oh well there is nothing i can do but here are some pharms for you. My allergist whom is the specialist that flies in from oahu hardly knew mych about anything and said my chronic anayphylactic reactions were ideopathic! And she did not inform me of hashimotos or a thyroid issue all together! So for four years i have been suffering with chronic round the clock anaphylactic reactions week afer month after year! My system is attacking itself and now my organs and thyroid are in serious danger all together! My gyno said oh its nothing-to severe pain in my left ovary and lack of my monthly period. Pcos. It must be because you were constipated. No connection to my thyroid? Then my colon doc said oh you need more fiber and water to constipation, ibs, not going for days or week, and i could tell i had a bacterial fungirl isssue with intense cramping always have and now realizing its stopped mobilizing all together bc of my thyroid but nope he didnt suggest that connection nor did he listen when i said i know im not absorbing my nutrients and something was wrong, nope didn't listen but showed me the door and said fiber and water but i was already a healthy eater and hydrated and i was really active til the day i couldnt lift up own legs to get out of bed and now four years later i still cant go without helping it out! I had a colonosposy and nothing. He just made fun of me. This is the specialist that flies in from oahu. Then my regular doc thought nothing of my fibromyalgia, bone nerve muscle pain i have never experienced on that level and migraines and light sensitivites and physical exhaustion to the point where i couldnt walk althogether was anything serious nor did he connect it to my thyroid!!! yup its my thyroid!!! Do they set me up with a doc now after my medicine doc checked my blood work for changes and noticed my thuroid was way off. So now i go see a doc and she knows nothing about thyroids but perscribes me levothyroxin before refering me to an endocrinologist, huh? She also did not connect it to hashimotos-i did. So i had to get a referal from my reg doc to see an endocrinologist about my thyroid! Wow! Really!!!!????!!! This is scary if this is considered ok on any level! I am now seeing a homeopathic naturalist and going that route as i was going already as i think its healthier but i needed the blood work and doc notes etc and simotaneously getting help from both. Now i am not trusting hospitals with my health! Although glad for ER saved my life although that nite is a whole other nightmere! Wow. Long. LolThanks for your videos, you have helped me tremendously and bow i am on the road to recovery, a long one, but i am sooo very thankful for your help!!! Ps sorry bout the long descriptions i get interested in sharing my story with tid bits of information. Sincerely jewels*

Oh and i left out a lot so here is a few more... I lost half of my hair in one week and i have beautiful full wavy brown hair. It just fell out when i washed it. Then for my allergies i also suffer from angioedema and urticaria with my chronic ansphylactic reactions but nope its idiopathic and i have had this my whole life but no answers to help. I gained wait only around my once perfect abs which was weird for me. My eyes were constantly running like i was crying when i wasn't. My emotional state was majorly out of whack to the point of not functioning. The stare of exhaustiin was even more than what you said but you nailed it on the head, yup. At the end of all of my symptoms, and no answer, i thought the worst, is this cancer, whats going on!? I need to heal myself so i do not go down that road! Im am postive and happy i am going to do the best i can to overcome this. Thanks Doc!

I'm calling my doctor on Monday and asking for several tests since watching several of your video's. My last TSH level 10 weeks ago was at a 42. I'm currently taking 145 mcg of Levothyroxine and still don't feel "normal." I'm 27 years old and feel 50. Thank you so much for all this information.

Donna Boschen (9 months ago)
Amanda Lang hi there Amanda ! I was on levothyroxine , then switched to synthroid... this was over 15 years ago, for a two year period.... still felt awful n would fall asleep at my desk at work and I’d slur my speech... then I lost my medical insurance... I was devastated but it turned out to be the best thing for me... I went to the bookstore n parked my butt on the floor and read is your thyroid making you fat? By Bernie something... forgot his last name... he does this diet for people n if they’ve tried it and still don’t lose weight he suspects their thyroid is off... but he went into depth about why the two drugs I’d taken wouldn’t work and said I needed a drug with both hormones T3 & T4 for my thyroid to function properly.. so therefore he prescribes Armour thyroid, yes Armour meat packing company is where it comes from... comes from pigs and their hormones are close to humans... I guess. So I found a sliding scale clinic and I met a woman dr and explained my ‘thyroid’ problem n begged her to give me a prescription for Armour thyroid and she did cuz she said it sounded like I’d done my homework... three weeks later, I woke up n thought, I’m back to my old self... it’s been a lot better and there are several nutrients you need to also add to your diet... I’m still taking Armour thyroid too.. hang in there....

Hello there! One of the best thing you can do for your over all health is to filter your water with a Zero water filter. If you are under a city water system they have bromine, chlorine, and the last is fluoride. These screw up the thyorid by pulling necessary nutrients out of the body. Do the best to avoid this. Supplements can help too just make sure you don't overlook your thyroid and your Heath. God bless and take care.

I am looking for help. I had half my thyroid removed around 4 years ago to remove a nodule. The doctor I see tells me that my thyroid levels are normal and would not prescibe any medication. But I don't sleep well at night and that makes me feel sick. I tried vit B12 and that just made my sleep worst. Anyone else has this problem? Any suggestions would be of great help.

Jennie Baez I can totally relate to this, since my thyroid surgery 20 years ago. I had a nudule as well and they removed most of my thyroid. My blood work comes back normal, but I have all the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism and it’s difficult to lose weight. They told me I don’t need meds! I have developed adrenaline fatigue as well. Started changing my diet to a Ketogenic lifestyle has improved a lot my symptoms. Basically cutting out all white flour, sugar and high carbs is hard, but now I am okay with the lifestyle change. Also have lost some weight along with intermittent fasting a few weeks ago. Almost all of my inflammation and pain has gone away , hope that helps. Also take 5-HTP and ashwaganda it’s a herb to help me sleep for the adrenaline fatigue, tired but wired symptoms , Also take a glandular supplement over the counter along with Sea Kelp, it gives me more energy, take each morning . Hope this helps. All the best!

Ears 2Hear (6 months ago)
Linda Pearse - I also have hypothyroid (Hashimoto's which is the auto immune type) and fibromyalgia. Same as you, told doctors for years until finally in and out of ER my husband got mad at the ER doc and I was referred to another who diagnosed me. She started me out on the generic Levothyroxine. Awful stuff and too low a dose. IDK that was my problem however until my husband a year later diagnosed with same condition had an immediate reaction to the generic stuff. Then the lightbulb came on and we are now both on name brand instead. What a difference that made. Also, for fibromylagia, taking Turmeric which has helped with fatigue, pain and energy. Not a cure all, but helps. I am about the same age as you. Taking B complex, vitc C, MSM, zinc, vit D Calcium, magnesium echinacea digestive enzymes also. I set my alarm for about 4am to take my thyroid meds and that also has helped, putting several hours before any food. ONE MORE THING!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!! Don not take iron within 4 hours of taking thyroid meds!!!! Iron supplements inhibit absorption!!! Check your daily multiple vitamin make sure they don't have iron and take it much later!!! no one told me that I found out the hard way! Hope that helps :)

nemesis1340 sounds like it’s time for you to find another doctor who will actually listen to you. I had to do the same thing! When you go to someone else and they start off with, “I don’t want to say someone has been doing you wrong in terms of your treatment.” It doesn’t feel too good. I know my previous doctor did nothing intentional, but I’m grateful I finally am with a doctor who listens and is putting my in touch with a medical team to help with my now complicated thyroid condition. I wish you the best of luck!

Dr. Westin Childs I have a question that I bet you've been asked before (I apologize if you've already addressed it). I just increased my levothyroxine from 100mcg to 112mcg for the first time in a decade. I'm having trouble with weight loss and recently decided to see an endocrinologist again. I'm experiencing insomnia, is this going to be temporary until I adjust or is this permanent? I can't get a strait answer from my pharmacist and my endocrinologist is 'leary' of any and all side effects.

Can we get the same enzymes that our body makes to convert t4?
Rachael Nelson (9 months ago)
Yes u can digestive enzymes do it for us to break down meals First u have to kill Candida and leaky gut first
Dr. Westin Childs (1 year ago)
In supplementation form, no. But you can indirectly increase enzyme activity by providing your body with cofactors.

Hi doc what a great vid and you are an amazing doctor! Just curious what enzymes to take?i did watch the whole vid but can't recall you saying them?i am very forgetful though so I'm sorry if you did say it.cheers 😁

Wish I had a good doc like you where I live as I know I can't convert t4 but the docs don't care to look into why.

Thank you Dr for the great information. I had my thyroid removed 18 years ago. I have gained the weight since surgery, approx 40+ lbs and has been impossible to lose. I have been taking supplements through the years but will try these specific ones that you are recommending. I'm going to talk to my endocrinologist about the possible addition of T3. Thanks for the info.
Dr. Westin Childs (1 year ago)
You are very welcome!

This information is not taught in medical school or in residency so there is no specific background to look for.
Dr. Westin Childs (1 year ago)
I'm glad you found it helpful!
Tonya Folks (2 years ago)
This is great! Thank you. I'm so tired of being treated by my TSH. Maybe you can do a video on how to find someone like you in our own communities. It seems difficult to find qualified practioners. What should we look for? Educational background, experience, etc?
