There is a good natural way to stimulate the thyroid gland, and return to your
natural and healthy weight. First of all, you must eat sensibly and try at all costs
to eliminate the “white toxins” from your diet. These are, refined white sugar,
refined white flour and chemically processed (including commercially fried)

Eat only VIRGIN or EXTRA-VIRGIN (meaning unprocessed and
unadulterated in any way) olive oil, peanut oil, and if you can locate, coconut oil.
Eat these oils in small and logical quantities. If you must eat mayonnaise and

processors, you can make a very delicious mayonnaise in 1 one minute using an
egg, a bit of salt, a dash of lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil. Good for your
heart and thyroid.
Your thyroid will turn back on, but you need to assist it to lose weight. This
means a daily exercise program, a logical diet and banishing from your diet all
culprit oils and products. Read food labels more carefully.
Do not be afraid of saturated fats. As long as there are no TRANS FATS included,
saturated fats can be very good for you, and helpful for your thyroid. An
example of this is peanuts or peanut butter (without any trans fats added).
To achieve a maximum effect from a rejuvenated thyroid gland, follow first of
all a quick detox diet. This is always beneficial. Next replace your edible fats as
advised above, and third, follow a maintenance diet and exercise light program
and you will see positive results from the first few days.
