This 30-day plan offers a gentle way to help your thyroid heal while supporting the liver, lymphatic system, and digestive system. In addition to loading up on thyroid-healing foods like apples, artichokes, celery, maple syrup, garlic, berries, and spaghetti squash at meals and snacks, Anthony William, author of Medical Medium: Thyroid Healing ($19.91, Amazon), recommends incorporating the following simple strategies into your day:
William calls this juice a “secret weapon” against chronic illnesses, thanks to celery’s antiviral and antibacterial properties. Drink 16 oz. of this recipe every morning: Rinse 1 bunch of celery and run through a juicer, or chop and blend celery in a blender until smooth, then strain and enjoy.
Lemon or Lime Water
Squeeze the juice of half a lemon or lime into 16 oz. of water. Drink the hydrating sip at midday and another in the late-afternoon. This will help flush immunity-sapping toxins and ensure optimal hydration.
William recommends drinking this every evening. To make, juice 2 large cucumbers, or chop cucumbers and blend in a high-speed blender until smooth, then strain and enjoy. William says this juice is a rejuvenating tonic that nourishes the kidneys and the lymphatic system to improve the body’s ability to flush health-sapping toxins and detoxify the thyroid gland.
