7. Sea Vegetables

Sea vegetables are a good source of iodine, an important mineral for thyroid health. The natural iodine present in sea vegetables can normalize thyroid-related disorders like weight fluctuations and lymph system congestion. These vegetables also contain a good amount of vitamin K, B-vitamin folate, magnesium, iron and calcium.

Some of the sea vegetables that you can use in the treatment of hyperthyroidism are kelp, kombu, hijiki, nori, arame, sea palm, etc. They are usually available in dried form at groceries.

You can use these vegetables by crushing, chopping or crumbling any mix of dry sea vegetables you like into soups and sauces, pizzas, casseroles, rice and salads.


8. Cabbage

Cabbage is one of the most useful foods that can be used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Cabbage contains a good amount of dietary goitrogens, substances that help reduce thyroid hormone production. For best results, eat uncooked cabbage.

9. Berries

Berries are rich in vitamins and various antioxidant properties that can help reduce inflammation of the thyroid gland. You can eat different types of berries such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries and others.

10. Indian Gooseberry

Indian gooseberry, also known as amla, can treat many health problems including hyperthyroidism. Indian gooseberry, due to its ameliorating effects on the thyroid gland, can help to control the production of thyroid hormones.


Mix Indian gooseberry powder with honey to make a thick paste and eat it in the morning before breakfast.


These are some of the foods that naturally suppress thyroid hormone production to help in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Also, try to limit your intake of dairy products and caffeine as much as possible to manage hyperthyroidism successfully.

  1. Thank you so much for the useful tips on Thyroid problems and the home remedies given to be taken to get relief.

  2. I was told by my endocrinologist to avoid kelp, chard and a few other high iodine foods which aggravate hyperthyroidism. I do tend to get more sick when consuming items with certain types of sea veggies .

  3. A friend pushed this link to me. I have started on broccoli, Kale and cabbage but a yet to get motherwort, lemon balmand bugleweed. I only see the shipping companies online.
    Am rooting for this and would definitely come back here to testify.

    1. just go to one of your local health food stores, not like a GNC or those other fancy stores. i googled mine and was able to find a couple in my area.

  4. for those of you looking for lemon balm, it is so easy to grow and can easily become invasive, giving more than enough for tea. I think it will grow in a pot if you do not have a yard.

  5. In hyperthyroidism Increasing (not decreasing) TSH level is a goal, what is mor, sea veggies or other food containing iodine is forbidden

  6. I would not advise anything which comes from the sea for hyperthyroidism. All sea life contains iodine which will make the thyroid gland tend to over produce.

  7. ::: Thank you for this info…I will definitely try these foods. been taking anti-Thyroid meds and just give me rushes…;( hope this will help.

  8. Conflicting stuff all over the net.

    You say lemon balm decreases TSH…. mine is too low already. What do you mean? I’m markedly hyper and don’t want a decrease do I?

    Iodine is stolen from the body by the thyroid, so the theory is that a small amount will help the body. It’s the body lacking the iodine which can make you ill as well.

  9. I was just told by my endochrinologist to not avoid iodine. He said by doing that your gland will increase in size searching for it. I’m going to try the lemon balm to see. I produce too much thyroid hormone and I’m tired of the shakes.

  10. Remember the difference between the WORDS.
    HYPERthyroidism or
    Remedies are different for each.😊
