Best Essential Oils for Supporting Thyroid Health
The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland near the base of the neck that heavily influences metabolic functions including energy, muscle tone and body temperature and of course weight management. There are many factors that affect how well the thyroid functions and it can be supported with a nutrient dense diet such as Paleo or a well formulated low carb plan that removes most inflammatory foods that many people can have a sensitivity reaction to after eating.
Also stress and sleep can play a big factor in thyroid health but are often overlooked factors that need attention. Essential oils can help the body function optimally through hectic, modern day life. Essential oils can reinforce good moods, bolster the digestive system and support immunity, all of which can be crucial for healthy thyroid maintenance.
Being a woman and as well as family history are considerations when checking if your thyroid is humming along or not. Essential oils have really helped me on my health journey to insure that I have a lot of stamina and vitality for my busy days of being a blogger, author and wife. Read more of my journey here.
