8 Natural Remedies for Hypothyroid Relief

8 natural remedies for hypothyroid relief

I gave the owner of the essential oils and herbal salves company Camp Wander my article 300+ Hypothyroidism Symptoms…Yes REALLY to read and this is what I asked:

I want relief from some of the common hypothyroid symptoms. Which essential oils do you recommend?

Written by Rebecca Schiffhauer

Do you have a hypothyroid condition or suspect that might be the case? The symptoms are many but take heart in the fact that you don’t have to feel awful all of the time, you don’t need to feel ruled by your symptoms and you can ease most symptoms naturally.

Thyroid 101 – The 4 most common causes of thyroid issues are tied to what we eat, drink, breathe and put on our body.

  1. Toxicity – environmental, pesticides, water, heavy metals
  2. Mineral deficiencies – iodine, selenium
  3. Food intolerance – gluten, dairy, lectins, sugar, GMO
  4. Hormone imbalance – hormone disruptive chemicals in makeup, fragrance, hygiene products, high cortisol levels due to chronic stress, excess carbs, too little quality fats

All of the above create inflammation. Inflammation causes pain and other nasty symptoms making life rather miserable.

Take heart friends, there’s always hope in the journey. Mother Nature’s pharmacopeia is waiting with a veritable smorgasbord of plant based relief that can help. At Camp Wander, we blend plant based alternatives that may ease inflammation and bring a little more pep to your step and we also encourage C.L.E.A.N, toxin free living.

When we reduce toxins, we strengthen our mitochondria. Mitochondria power every cell. They are key to health and vitality at a cellular level.

NEED MORE SLEEP?

Dreamy Sleep Salve – this blend of essential oils in a salve formulation may settle blood sugar levels at night thereby helping your body to finally rest its bad little self. Dreamy Sleep Salve is a crazy combination of Cinnamon Bark, Ginger, Peppermint, Lemon and Grapefruit essential oils in a food grade salve base. The synergy of these oils can send you off into dream land and help you get back to sleep. Massage Dreamy Sleep Salve on the bottoms of your feet before bed.

WANT COMFORTABLE SEX?

Sexy Wellness Salve with Rose – a toxin free, food grade personal lubricant affectionately known as “magic salve” that just might become your best bedside buddy. The essential oil of pure Rose makes a rare appearance in our salve to nourish tissue, Frankincense to ease inflammation, Melaleuca to protect against yeast infection, and Lavender to soothe and restore. Pure essential oils are blended with organic coconut oil, olive oil, rosehip seed oil and beeswax for a safer alternative to unregulated commercial lubricants.

GOT HOT FLASHES?

Herbal Woman Salve – From young woman to wise woman, every woman on the planet seeks hormonal balance.

Natural hormonal balancing benefits of Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Frankincense blended in a food grade salve formulation go to work for you and the aromatics will help settle your nerves in no time. Apply topically as needed to back of neck, chest or bottoms of feet.

SKIN FEELING LIFELESS, DRY?

Anti Age with ROSE – This is a personal fave of mine, one I keep on hand for mature moisture – lasting face and body moisture. Hand crafted with Lavender, Frankincense, Cypress and Rose essential oils this skin care product is a super healer, rejuvenator, a toner and, an infection fighter with anti-inflammatory properties. Feel the benefits of the regenerative properties of pure Lavender, Frankincense, Cypress and Rose essential oils and the moisturizing properties of organic coconut oil, olive oil, rosehip seed oil and beeswax – skin food at its finest! Apply light layer to your clean face in the evening.

DO MUSCLE CRAMPS WAKE YOU UP?

Muscle Ease Salve – Our signature blend salve for cramp relief and muscle soreness. It’s been called the Charlie Horse blend, but you might just call it the OMG thank you! blend especially if you suffer from muscle spasms that wake you up in the night. Pure essential oils of Lemongrass, Sweet Marjoram, well known tendon and muscle soothers and Peppermint for the icy cool anti-inflammatory can create a symphony of relief. The second you feel a tightening, apply salve to area of tightness, massage in. Bonus, Muscle Ease has been said to provide robust arthritis relief as well.

As we come to the end of this blog post I have one more suggestion, a daily detox. Environmental toxins like pesticides that act as hormone/endocrine disruptors, interfere with metabolism and thyroid function and studies show that as we lose weight, pesticides are released from fat tissue. As we move forward pursuing better for ourselves it makes sense to practice daily detox protocols. Drinking adequate (clean) water is a good place to start, practicing natural detoxing protocols and caring about the food we eat and making better choices is also paramount.

One natural approach to easing symptoms of inflammation is our best-selling Function Detox Blend – a blend of Turmeric CO2, Black Pepper, Frankincense, Bergamot and Lemongrass essential oils, all natural anti-inflammatories.

My Tired Thyroid Function Blend

FUNCTION USAGE FYI – We add organic rosehip seed oil to Function Detox Blend to protect against skin sensitivity, it’s ready to roll! Apply topically to bottoms of feet, above both ankle bones (inside) every morning. Add a night time routine if needed. Our Function Blend literally flies off our shelves. Here are some testimonials that we have received on this product.

Started working in three days! I was so tired three days ago, I had to take a daily nap! This is the first day in months I’m not exhausted, and it’s midnight! -Heather

No more night sweats! Maybe a little TMI but I have Hashimoto’s and get crazy night sweats during my period. They are AWFUL!! I am so so so thrilled to say I’ve been using Function at night on the inside of my ankles, wrists at night and haven’t had night sweats in months! It really is a miracle! -Ashley

I had been feeling a little out of sorts, but all my blood work said thyroid levels were ok. Today is day 4 of using the oil, I feel more energetic and clear headed than I have in a long time. Thank you. -Tom

In the quest to clean up our environment including the air we breathe, diffusing pure essential oils can help reduce personal exposure to toxins in your environment. It’s a pleasant way to purify the air and remove odors in your home and your workplace – an ultrasonic diffuser sends tiny droplets of essential oils into the air carried by a cool cloud of water vapor. Diffusers are my favorite gift idea, especially for family and friends new to essential oils.

Please note that I’m not a physician, I’m simply sharing plant-based alternatives to ease the symptoms and discomfort of a condition that can disrupt the quality of life. I enjoy improved health due to cleaning up my environment, my diet and the products I use on my body and in my home. Use of essential oils is not intended to take the place of your health providers care. If you are under a physicians care please check with your physician before making any changes to your established protocols. Camp Wander products are never intended to replace thyroid medication. They are created to help provide relief for some of the most common hypothyroid symptoms.

    Dear Dana, my name is Margaret. I was diagnosed with no thyroid function in 2005. I weighed 272 and am only 5’1″. I have lost about sixty pounds but I could still lose another ninety pounds. You said you had a miscarriage and my son died at four months from sids. After I was diagnosed I suspected my thyroid problem may have contributed to his death. I have only taken levothyroxin. I still battle my weight and being sedentary. Just reading your story inspired me. I am sixty and want to feel better but don’t know what to do.

  2. Also have Hashis.

  3. Thanks for reading this. I am trying to switch from Levothyroxine to NDT. Tried Armour, had itching and felt bad. Dr switched me to Naturethroid. Been on it for 5 days and have itching that feels like an allergic reaction. Eyes itch, random places on my body itch. I can tolerate this if it’s normal and will subside eventually. Do you know if this is normal?
    Really don’t want to go back to T4-only.
