Disclaimer: Thyroid Disease can only be determined and diagnosis by a professional/practitioner. Please seek your doctor prior to attempting anything within this article.
My challenges with hyperthyroidism began in 2005 and fighting the symptoms of the disease was challenging in itself; suffering from mood swings and restlessness I knew that I had to do something because it was affecting my daily activities. I was determined to find a natural, safe alternative to treating the disease due to my personal stance on modern medicine and medical treatments. The tolerance level of discomfort is different for each person yet the hormonal imbalance is practically the same. With willpower and determination I sought after an herbalist who specialized in alternative medicine and holistic treatment. Here are four way to naturally fight thyroid disease, not as a cure but for management to decrease the discomfort level of the daily challenges.
The Four Steps
Taking multivitamins containing the vitamins C&D, Calcium and Magnesium are highly recommended as this will assist with deficiencies and hormonal imbalances not being obtain in your meals. The biotin within the vitamins will help the prevention of hair shedding.
Daily exercise is vitally important and this doesn’t mean getting a gym membership -- although you can if you wish -- yet incorporating exercise in your daily activities. Instead of choosing the parking space closer to the door to save steps, park further away from the door to increase your steps. Instead of taking the elevator, take the stairs or take the elevator up and take the stairs down and vice versa. Walking is necessary and once it becomes habit forming you’ll no longer see it as a nuisance. It keeps you alert, focused and accountable. Get a pedometer as a goal-setter to do an X amount of steps per day and increase those steps by ten daily.
Changing your diet is the key to success and you can do so by adding various types of protein, drinking more water, eliminating unhealthy snacks and sugars, reducing the intake of caffeine and increasing the intake of herbs.
Lastly, start juicing! Get more natural vitamins by juicing with Vitamix ™, Magic Bullet ™ or any juicing system to provide more nutrients. When making smoothies or nutritional shakes, use whey protein as an alternative to sugar. Whey is a protein powder that comes from the remains of milk after the formation of curds. You can find it at any health food store or drugstore.

Reading nooks are the perfect hideaways for a moment of peace and quiet at home. Some homes are large enough to dedicate an entire room as a library but finding a little cozy corner in an apartment, condo or a small residence to curl up, read a good book or magazine is the best way to end a long day.
Where you build your nook is entirely up to you. Whether you have space underneath a stairwell as shown; a bare window area that needs attention; or a dull corner in an airy room, utilizing a small space and making it functional without it looking crammed and clustered is the ultimate goal.
Small Spaces, Tight Situation
Having a nook built can be expensive. The average cost to install a built-in seating area is estimated between $840 - $1680. With the right budget, tools and creativity you can actually create your own for less than $100. Saving money to recreate this look for your home can be achieved by following these EC #DIY steps:
#DIY Tip 1: Store bought benches and nooks can run pretty high and if you're not handy with tools the option of woodwork is out of the question. So your best decision is to find an old, sturdy wooden coffee table from a resale shop or local junkyard. This shouldn't exceed $25 but budget for $40 just in case. If you can't find a wooden table to fit your budget, try these alternatives: wooden crates or cube storage unit (single cubes to build your own length).
Get the Look:
#DIY Tip 3: Bench cushions vary in price and are typically inexpensive. Creating your own won't necessarily save you money but it will definitely show off your awesome DIY skills. If want to know how easy it is to make one, check out the video below. Click this here if video isn't playing.
#DIY Tip 4: For storage underneath your brand new nook, simply add a storage basket or two. Our sponsor, Pier1 Imports, has a large selection of storage baskets currently on sale.
