When the thyroid gland – a little gland in your neck shaped like a butterfly – does not produce enough hormones, hypothyroidism occurs.
Despite its small size, this gland actually has a very important function in the body. The thyroid gland regulates our mood, metabolism, energy level, body temperature and blood pressure.
If you’ve experienced unexpected weight gain, fatigue, and sudden mood swings lately, then you might have a thyroid problem. It’s a condition that affects over 20 million Americans, but because the symptoms are easy to overlook as problems that occur due to the busy lifestyle many of us lead, most of the people suffering from this condition don’t actually know they have it.
To combat inflammation and regulate thyroid, many specialists recommend making a home remedy tea. Start by boiling 2 glasses of water. Add 1/4 teaspoon dry ginger, 1/2 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 cup cranberry juice to the mix and let it all sit for about twenty minutes.
When you are ready to drink the tea, and a couple of tablespoon of orange juice and lemon juice to also make it taste better. Drink this tea regularly for best results.
