It is not a secret that the thyroid gland is responsible for almost every process in your body. But there are two states your thyroid gland can be in – underactive and overactive. Both of them are pretty treatable, what is more, you can bring your thyroid state back to normal at home.

Today we are going to talk about underactive thyroid, which is called hypothyroidism. That means that your thyroid gland does not produce enough of the thyroid hormone, so your body is not working properly. But there are at least 8 ways you can get it back to normal, and today we are going to discuss all of them. Sometimes it comes as a great surprise how many things can be easily treated at home, yet it does not mean that you should skip your regular checkup at the hospital.

There is no way you should increase your BPA intake. So since all plastic bottles contain it, you should only drink from glass our stainless steel.
