Alkalizing Lifestyle Tips For Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism

  • Engage in regular, weight-bearing exercise.

  • Eat a diet strong in alkalizing vegetables and fruits.

  • Use positive stress management techniques such as yoga, meditation, laughter, qigong, and walking.

  • Deep breathing reduces stress and increases the rate at which carbon dioxide is released from the body, reducing acidity.

  • Go Organic: pesticides are acid-forming.

  • Make the change gradually:  If you think a quick switch will be stressful or set you up for failure, begin  making the transition slowly over a matter of weeks.

  • Adequate dietary Vitamin D levels may help with absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphate, which can help with acid/alkaline balance. Most populations in northern climates are deficient in vitamin D, so getting tested may be a good idea for you.  Vitamin D drops are the best for absorbtion.

Remember, the big picture is what matters; balancing diet, exercise, and lifestyle will provide you with the best tools for maintaining a healthy pH balance in your body and better managing your Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism.
