Over the last 6 months I have improved my thyroid function. I used to be subclinical hypothyroid (my TSH was climbing higher and higher, approaching 4). Now my T3 and T4 are in optimal ranges (haven’t had my TSH tested again yet). I’m not exactly sure which contributed to the improvement, but these are the things I’ve been doing in that time, so it could be a combination of them:
-eating more calories (3000+ which I’m not force-feeding but actually hungry for)
-more salt, sugar, carbs
-more saturated fat from coconut oil and ghee and dairy
-taking a supplement to help clear out excess estrogen
-taking liver support herbs
-a low dose progesterone cream in the second half of my cycle
