Dr Oz: Reboot Your Thyroid
When suffering from a slow thyroid, easy, quick-fix remedies are certainly tempting. Dr Oz discussed the potentially dangerous side effects of using over-the-counter thyroid pills then took the time to highlight a much better way for you to improve the condition of your slow thyroid to boost your metabolism and feel better in no time.
Dr Oz was joined by Dr Aviva Romm, author of “The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution: A Proven 4-Week Program To Rescue Your Metabolism, Hormones, Mind & Mood.” Dr Romm was thrilled to share real solutions to help fix a slow thyroid, explaining that the thyroid can become too stressed out and slow down if you skip meals or even exercise too much.
Dr Oz: S-I-Z Formula Program For A Slow Thyroid
The “S” in S-I-Z stands for selenium. If you’re struggling with a slow thyroid, selenium can help turn things around and stop antibodies from attacking your thyroid. You can find selenium in foods like spinach, mushrooms, rolled oats, and Brazil nuts. Just two Brazil nuts a day can add enough selenium to your diet.

Dr Romm then took the foods required to boost your thyroid function and created a meal plan to take the guess work out of eating healthy.
First, for breakfast you’ll want to munch on low-fat yogurt and granola made with toasted rolled oats and a handful of almonds or pumpkin seeds.
