Essential Fatty Acids and Thyroid

Hello Everyone,

Thyroid Treatment Success Secret #15:

Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s)

Healthy hormone production including the production of thyroid hormones depends on Essential fatty Acids (EFA’s).  You’ve probably heard about these nutrients; fish oil, flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil, black currant seed oil.

In our diets, EFA’s can be found in cold water fish and in many raw, unprocessed nuts and seeds.  EFAs not only contribute nutrients for hormones but also for proper cellular communication, brain function and much more.

The ideal ratio between Omega 6 and Omega 3 fats in EFAs is estimated to be from 3 to 1up to 5 to 1.  In the average American diet, or S.A.D. (Standard American Diet), the ratio is more like 25 to 1, thanks to junk food diets that are loaded with vegetable oil.  You need to take a well-rounded, fish-oil based, high potency EFA supplement if you intend to be healthy.

If you are insuline-resistant, it causes a condition in which the bnody cannot properly metabloize the EFAs in flax, evening primrose or black currant seed oils.  This is why fishois is the predominant recommendation.  Essential fatty acid deficiencies are so common in the United States it is iestimated that up to 80 percent of the US population fialed to get enough essential fatty acids each day thanks to our Standard American Diet (SAD).

It is because our diet is so filled with junk: high fat, high salt, high sugar or high refined sugar.  I had a patient come in one time, and she was drinking 12 cans of diet mountain dew a day and I told her if she wanted to become my patient she would need to stop drinding the diet Mountain Dew immediately.  She did on a slow gradiant and is now doing very well.

If youj are serious about getting healthy, if you are serious about correcting your thyroid problem, you need to change your diet.  You need to eat healthy; you need to elimnate junk food; you need to be taking essential fatty acids, especially fish oil based essential fatty acids, and especially high-quality fish-oil-based essential fatty acids.

How do you know if you have high quality essential fatty acids?  Well, consider more than price:  if you cut one of your fish oil capsules and you put it in the freezer and it freezes, that is not good.  Oil should not freeze.
