2. Try Selenium
According to the website, Women to Women, selenium could be an ally when it comes to treating thyroid problems. Selenium (in mixed nuts, sunflower seeds, eggs, yogurt, couscous, and mushrooms) is an element that can help our thyroid better deal with stress, and work like a “detox”, according to the site.
The site notes that “selenium-based proteins help regulate hormone synthesis”—which in normal speak, means it can help control your metabolism and essentially how your body creates energy.
