In my experience helping clients in the store, I have found most people have either one or more of these symptoms. Also, hypothyroidism seldom causes symptoms in the early stages. If left untreated, however, the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism can gradually become serve and may lead to other health problems such as weight gain, joint pain, infertility, heart disease, and low energy.
I believe a few changes in your diet may help to naturally bring back that bounce in your step! Calciferous vegetables like kale, spinach and, broccoli naturally provide an amino acid L-tyrosine - hypothyroidism has been linked to low levels of this amino acid. Lots of fruits, nuts, oils, grains, and protein also have nutrients that help balance the thyroid function, may it be hyper (too high) or hypo ( too low).
