How to Control Thyroid Issues on a Budget?

Thyroid issues can wreak havoc on your daily lives. And when you start thinking about controlling your thyroid issues through diet, the food options you have can wreak havoc on your budget. It truly seems like a problem with no solutions at all. Of course, there are pills that can help you feel better but to improve the quality of your daily life, they are simply not enough! With thousands of fancy thyroid treatment food and diet options on the internet, finding the right diet option for you seems easy enough on paper. But when you actually try to implement them, you can end up going way over your budget.

So, what if we told you that there are some kitchen staples that you could invest in to get your thyroid problems under control without burning a hole in your pocket? The best part is that most of these ingredients are a common part of Indian cuisine. In fact, you probably have these in your kitchen already! With a little more effort and the right cooking methods, you can make sure that you regulate your thyroid health and keep those pesky symptoms at bay without any extra cost at all.

It is, however, important to understand that these ingredients are not replacements for medical treatment. Unfortunately, with chronic thyroid issues, medication should be prioritized but using these ingredients right can help your medication fight your symptoms better. Let’s dig in!

This vibrant yellow spice is widely used in Indian cuisine, and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the thyroid gland. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has antioxidant properties that can help protect the thyroid from damage caused by free radicals. In addition to its potential health benefits, turmeric adds a delicious flavor and vibrant color to dishes such as curries, rice dishes, and lentil soups. Of course, this amazing thyroid treatment food is no stranger to the Indian kitchen.

A great source of iron and magnesium, cumin seeds are the perfect supplement to your hypothyroidism diet. While iron is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones, magnesium helps the body absorb these hormones effectively– and cumin conveniently has both of these together! Cumin is a common spice in Indian cuisine and can be found in many delicious curries and chutneys. The warm, earthy, and complex flavor of this tiny superfood is another delicious advantage.

One of the most common garnishes found in Indian markets, this herb can be easily grown in your home as well. Filled to the brim with antioxidants that protect your thyroid gland from damage, they help neutralize free radicals that can cause stress and damage to your thyroid. You can use either the fresh coriander leaves for a bright and somewhat citrusy flavor or use coriander seeds for a more natural, nutty flavor.

Similar to turmeric, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in the thyroid gland. But wait, this tiny root has so much more to offer. From improving insulin sensitivity for healthy blood sugar levels to improving your gut health, ginger or adrak is a powerhouse of benefits that come at the lowest costs. Its spicy, slightly sweet flavor adds warmth and depth to dishes with its pungent aroma invigorating and comforting you, especially in your evening cup of chai.

Selenium is a mineral that is essential for the conversion of thyroid hormones from an inactive to an active form. It is also involved in the production of antioxidant enzymes that help protect the thyroid from damage. And luckily, your delicious everyday garlic has abundant quantities of selenium. With a pungent flavor that adds both depth and complexity to dishes, garlic is no stranger in Indian households. Its health benefits combined with its unique flavor make it the perfect seasoning for your hypothyroidism diet.

Indian Gooseberry (Amla):
Amla is not for everyone. It might taste bitter in the first bite, but it only leaves sweetness behind after eating it. But then again, who said you always have to eat it raw– pickle it, make it a chutney, juice it, or just have it with some salt! This quirky little fruit is packed with Vitamin C which is critical in the synthesis of thyroid hormones. This tangy lemon-sized fruit is available almost year-round and can be purchased from your local market.

Coconut oil:
Coconut oil has been used as the primary cooking oil in South India for centuries, and for good reason. Not only does it boost your metabolism, but it also contains medium-chain fatty acids that are easily absorbed by the body and converted into ketones, which can provide a quick source of energy for the thyroid gland. You can substitute any oil with coconut oil to give your thyroid gland a quick energy boost.

Of course, no Indian kitchen is ever complete without at least one variety of lentils. This staple ingredient in Indian kitchens is an excellent source of protein, iron, and multiple other essential thyroid care nutrients. Iron is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones, while protein provides the building blocks for tissue repair and growth. Whether you are in the mood for a light soup or a deliciously creamy curry, lentils are the best way to go!

This is another thyroid treatment food that could be growing in your backyard without your knowledge. Spinach is an iron-rich, leafy vegetable that can be found in every market across India. And the best part– it literally grows anywhere! You can just sow seeds in a pot, wait for a couple of months, and voila, you have your own garden of fresh spinach plants. These delicate leaves can be used in anything from stir fries to soups, thanks to their mild flavor and soft texture.

We have all heard that carrots are good for your eyes but did you know that they can help combat thyroid issues too? A good source of the Beta-carotene nutrient, carrots are easily available throughout India in different shapes and sizes. Beta-carotene is converted into Vitamin A in your body, which is beneficial for the whole endocrine system including your thyroid gland. Moreover, the high fiber content in carrots can also help regulate thyroid hormones.

In conclusion–

Yes, it is possible to incorporate hypothyroidism diet options into your routine without going over your budget. But it is important to understand that no food is a replacement for your thyroid medication and that not everyone has the same issues which can be solved with the same thyroid treatment food options. This is why you should always consult a dietician and discuss with your medical professional to create a hypothyroidism diet that can manage your symptoms and fit your budget!

Getting in touch with Mrs. Richa Doshi was the best thing that happened to me in 2023 for diet counselling. I lost almost 7-8 kilos under her supervison. Rubina was really helpfull and co-operative in understanding the lifestyle issues I had which lead to my weight gain. After 6 months of consultation, I am getting my periods regularly without any pills after a year. My constipation problems also got resolved. Highly recommended

Wonderful experience with the team THS, headed by Ms Richa. With proper prescription of healthy and required food, the journey of losing 7 kgs, in around 4 months, became smooth. It was also special because I was never recommended any outside supplements. All done with natural foods. Special thanks to Rubina for prompt reply and guidance.
