The Thyroid stimulates the release of dopamine, one of the 4 main neurotransmitters associated with OCD and GAD.
Someone emailed me and wrote… I am confused some say that cruciferous vegetables are good for hypothyroidism and some strictly restrict consume these vegetables. What is the exact answer.
People have different opinions, in part I believe because our body chemistries are all different.
I have a suggestion which may help you. I would avoid all cruciferous vegetables for 2 weeks while taking your temperature every morning before you arise in the morning and keeping a record of it.
Then add cruciferous vegetables for 2 weeks in heavy duty amounts, taking your temperature again every morning.
Then compare the two.
If your temperatures went down at all, it indicates the vegetables were causing a strain on your thyroid. I believe is the best indicator.
I think overdoing anything can cause a problem. And cruciferous vegetables, raw in large amounts in some, seems to pull the thyroid function down a little.
But there are such good nutrients in cruciferous vegetables, I hate for people to lose out on them unnecessarily.
