Why Women Should Avoid These 3 Thyroid-Suppressive Foods

Did you know that studies from The American Thyroid Association show women are 5-8 times more likely to struggle with thyroid problems than men? [1]

This butterfly shaped gland sits at the base of the neck and while tiny, it has a big influence on everything from energy levels, body temperature, and metabolic rate to managing stress, anxiety, weight and even hair follicles [4].

Combine that fact with the natural changes the female body goes through due to menopause and it becomes much clearer why so many women report feeling “off” …

It's Not Your Fault

And if you’re a woman over 40 like me, you’re not alone.

Did you know that studies from The American Thyroid Association also show that 60% of those struggling with thyroid issues are unaware? [2]

According to an article from Harvard Health titled “Could you have a thyroid problem-and not know it: symptoms of a mildly under-active thyroid aren't always obvious”.

Fortunately, there is hope...

  • The key for me was learning about how to avoid the 3 thyroid suppressing foods that keep women from optimizing the thyroid, increasing energy levels naturally, and from feeling amazing.
  • Keep reading to see all the details along with the top "thyroid-boosting" foods.
  • Plus I'll also share the 3 steps that reveal how to help release the thyroid hormones full potential to have energy and feel amazing at any age.

First let me introduce myself. Hi, my name is Dawn Sylvester.

I’m 57 years old and for much of my adult life I struggled with thyroid issues that I wasn’t aware of because I thought it was just part of getting older.

I remember thinking of how much energy I use to have and now I didn’t even want to leave the house.

I was too exhausted. My energy and self confidence were at rock bottom...

"Why am I so tired all the time?"

Some days it was hard just to get out of bed and put one foot in front of another because I just felt so run-down and tired.

It wasn’t just the fatigue, you see I use to have thick beautiful hair. Now I was seeing more hair in the shower drain and my scalp was starting to show.

Not only that, nothing fit anymore and I was always bloated and uncomfortable.

It took years and thousands of dollars but I was finally seeing the full importance of female thyroid function as we age - but finding the right alternative health experts was so worth it!

No wonder I was struggling.

You see, the Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland that sits below the Adam’s Apple. The thyroid secretes several hormones into the bloodstream that contribute to energy production including the metabolic rate, the brain and the heart.

Your body depends on the thyroid for nearly every function. Think of the thyroid like the gas pedal for the female metabolism.

According to the American Thyroid Association, when the thyroid hormone is not optimized, it can lead to:

  • Feeling tired (7)
  • Muscle weakness and body discomfort (7)
  • Poor memory (7,8)
  • Low energy, increased stress, and irritability (7,8)
  • Intolerance of cold temperatures (7,8)
  • Thinning hair and even hair loss (7)
  • Decreased Metabolic rate (7,10)

Avoid These Thyroid-Suppressing Foods

You see, I was failing because while I was eating healthy I wasn't aware that certain foods can still suppress the body’s production of the thyroid stimulating hormone. Avoiding these thyroid suppressing foods was step 1 for me.

  1. thyroid vegetables to avoidFor instance, one specific class of thyroid-disruptors that I wasn't aware of are known as thiocyanates. Thiocyanates are sulfur producing foods like corn and lima beans that make the it harder for the thyroid to do it’s job.
  2. Another specific class of thyroid-disruptors are called goitrogens. Goitrogens interfere with the body’s ability to produce iodine. These are present in cruciferous vegetables when eaten raw as in kale, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and cabbage to name a few.

Finally it started to make sense why nothing was really helping that much. I wasn't working with my body. I was trying to work harder while I should of been working smarter.

That was also my first big "ah-ha" moment and I was finally starting to see answers to all my questions like:

“Why Am I So Tired All The Time?”

An overall feeling of “sluggishness” is one of the most reported causes of  low thyroid (5). This can go unnoticed as just a natural part of aging.

When the body is flooded with the thyroid suppressing toxins that are found in certain foods, and household items, the body has to work overtime, and it’s easy to feel tired all the time, no matter how much “rest” the body gets…

A common myth is that the body simply needs more sleep; however, that doesn’t solve the problem at the source…

The thyroid hormones need to be optimized with the thyroid-friendly foods below so that a woman’s body can thrive.

“Why Is My Hair Thinning?”

Hair growth and loss can depend on the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. Abnormal levels of thyroid hormones can result in hair changes, like thinning, brittle hair, and hair loss.(9)

And since the body’s metabolic function is also controlled by the thyroid, when it slows down, a woman’s skin may become dry, lackluster and cold.

When the thyroid is healthy and functioning properly, a woman’s hair and skin has a better chance to appear more full, hydrated, and vibrant. (9)

“Why Is My Brain Foggy?”

Dr. Raymond Peat refers to brain fog and how low thyroid levels can limit mental function, make it difficult to concentrate, and just make doing things around the house feel overwhelming at times [3].

See, the brain requires a large amount of fuel just to function, according to Dr. Peat. And if blood flow is restricted because of low thyroid hormone levels, it makes it more difficult to get nutrients and fuel to the cells.

This combination of low fuel, nutrients, and thyroid hormone levels can result in low energy production from the brain, Peat says [3].

Eat "Thyroid Boosting" Foods Daily

Now you know about a few of the common thyroid suppressive foods to avoid because they can decrease thyroid production in the body. No wonder I was failing for so long.

By now it should also be clear to see that the thyroid is one of the most complicated, and hard working glands in the body.

So it's no wonder why so many women eventually just give up searching for answers all together. As a busy, working mom I know first hand how difficult it can be to stay on track while trying to balance everything else.

Fortunately, In my journey I found dozens of foods, herbs, spices, teas, smoothies and essential oils that can actually make the process enjoyable.

And for me, being able to actually enjoy the journey is how I’ve finally been able to get real and lasting results at 57.

That’s why I decided to become a certified nutritionist and dedicate the rest of my life to learning to combine these thyroid-friendly nutrition techniques in the most effective, simple, and enjoyable way in order to help women who are struggling like I was.

That's when I started to feel better than ever

  • My energy levels increased…
  • My stomach issues, pain and bloating subsided...
  • My brain fog cleared …
  • And I felt more alive than ever after months of fatigue, exhaustion, and too many restless nights.

I even shared my 3 step plan that included which thyroid-acive foods to eat and which thyroid suppressing foods to avoid with my mom who also struggled to maintain optimal thyroid function as she aged. Now she is in her early 80’s and feels more happy, active and energized than ever.

I even shared my 3 step plan that included which thyroid-acive foods to eat and which thyroid suppressing foods to avoid with my mom who also struggled to maintain optimal thyroid function as she aged.

Now she is in her early 80’s and feels more happy, active and energized than ever.

I get asked all the time how I know so much about thyroid nutrition, and don’t “appear” to look like I’ve ever had anything wrong with me...

The reason is because I watched my mother struggle for years, then I struggled myself years later when I got into my 40’s...

And when I saw firsthand how this 3 step formula helped my Mom and myself, I knew I had to share this with as many women as possible.

Women like Jessica Seifker...

My hormones were a mess and I was feeling hopeless...I LOVE the new and happier ME!

Jessica Seifker, 43

After my boys were born, I realized that I no longer had the energy to make it through a day.  At work, I would be fatigued each afternoon.  I would reach for chocolate to help me make it through the rest of the day and evening.

My hormones were a mess, and I was feeling hopeless. I could not lose my baby weight and I looked like I was still carrying a baby.

Dawn made me realize the importance of certain foods and herbs that stimulate the entire body into feeling better!

I followed Dawn’s nutritional recommendations, Quickly, I started to have energy again each day. I no longer had my daily brain fog as I wasn’t skipping meals, and I now knew what to eat.  In addition, my body shape was transformed.

Dawn has changed the way I think about food, how I eat, and how I move through each day. I now actually crave healthy food, and feel energized. I LOVE the new and happier ME!

Now, there are 2 paths to take...

  1. The first path is trying to figure all of this out without any help. Sure, it’s easy to search online and find some thyroid friendly foods, however being able to combine everything in the simplest, most enjoyable and effective way possible is much more difficult.
  2. That’s why I recommend taking the second path, where I’ve already done all the hard work by putting my years of research into an easy-to-follow, 3 step blueprint I call “the Thyroid Factor”.

The Thyroid Factor is a 21 day nutrition program and thyroid support system for women that guides you through specific healthy eating choices and simple lifestyle changes to help you have more energy and feel amazing at any age.

When I was finished, I was left with a simple, easy-to-follow 3-step thyroid optimization plan that combined all the best practices in the most effective way.

Now for the first time I’ve combined all those years of research, blueprints, protocols into this easy-to-follow 3-step thyroid support system that includes everything you need to get started on the right track today:

Helen Watson, 49

Most people write testimonials that say their ‘lives have been changed’.  I feel this does not even touch the surface of what Dawn Sylvester has done for me. She has changed MY outlook on MY life. To me this is far more valuable. Through her, I have been valuing every day in my new body and refreshed mind.

Her plan make sense, not like the other methods that leave you starving and feeling tired (nearly all women have tried those and failed!). Her methodology coaches not only how, but why she chooses the meals she chooses for us.

"I have referred multiple patients of mine to Dawn"

Dr. Tom Nabity MD

Dawn was introduced to as a patient at the recommendation of a mutual colleague of ours.  Within the first minute of our discussion of her case, I could tell she was very different than most of my patients.

Her drive, determination, and attention to detail far exceeded my experience with any patient I’d ever met, and after talking with her a few minutes more, she explained what she did for a living… and it all made sense.

Dawn amazes me with her determination to continually maximize her life and she has inspired me to continue to follow my passion, regardless of the obstacle standing in my way.  She has the knowledge to help her clients achieve their goals, but more importantly, she has an infectious spirit to motivate when you might feel like giving up.

I have referred multiple patients of mine to Dawn to help them achieve their weight loss, activity, and life goals, and will continue to do so.  I would entrust Dawn with my family and friends.  She is the best!

"I feel more confident and capable"

Pamela Voss-Page, MED

Dawn’s lifestyle guidelines have made my body and mind stronger! I have learned to incorporate strategies in my two jobs and everyday life with my five grandchildren (I have no time for fatigue).

Before following Dawn’s thyroid balancing plan, I was challenged with physical demands and always wished I had more energy. My knees hurt, and I wondered how to STOP or slow down the aging process before I turned 70.

Now, I really feel younger and stronger than 15 years ago. I now have no pain in my knees from following her plan.

I don’t ever worry about hurting myself in my daily activities. I incorporate Dawn’s words in my daily life: “Eat for energy, Balance is the key, physically and mentally.”

I feel more confident and capable. I even feel more accomplished! It’s very important to me to be strong and energized for my active, non-stop life. Dawn changed my life forever.

Thank you, Dawn!

The Only Way To Make A Change Is To Take Action - The Time Is Now

Look, I shared my personal story today because I want to help women who may be going through the same struggles my mom and I did for years…

However, the only way to do that is by making a change.

The one thing I regret most about my journey in life is not asking for help sooner when it came to my body and how I was feeling…

  • As women, we were NOT meant to become a shell of ourselves as we get older, after having kids or even grandkids…
  • We were NOT meant to be tired all the time, struggling to get out of bed in the morning even after a full night’s rest…
  • And we were definitely NOT meant to settle for a life that isn’t amazing and exciting…

Remember, you're not alone in this. I’ll be right there to help every step of the way. However, I can only help you if you choose to take action right now like so many women before you have.

Melanie M.

I could not lose weight due to thyroid issues. It was extremely frustrating for me and I knew she was very knowledgeable in both nutrition and thyroid health. I felt more confident when I finally went to see an ND about my thyroid.

I had a better understanding of what was going on with my body and what I needed to do to achieve a hormonal balance. This is coming from someone dealing with Hashimoto’s since I was about 8-9 years old, but was still frustrated as the “main stream” advice was not working.

I have lost 15 lbs and continue to get stronger, healthier and happier. I am thankful there are individuals like Dawn, who are fighting the same battles, and doing everything they can to be well informed and find solutions to help others.

Q: Will this program work for someone older?

Absolutely! The truth is most health programs are designed for people in their 20’s or 30’s who can do all these outrageous exercises and starvation diets when those same things can ruin a woman’s metabolism as she gets older…

I created this program in my mid-50’s after realizing there was NOTHING available for older women and men who want to feel and look their best at ANY age.

Q: Do I need a bunch of diet foods to get started?

No, absolutely not, and all of the foods in the Thyroid Factor are likely in the house already or can be found at a local grocery store. There’s no need to order any expensive ingredients or get a gym membership to get started.

Q: What makes this program different than everything else I've tried?

Great question! You see, 99% of the health programs out there don’t even mention the thyroid or how it controls almost every function in the body. This is why all the fad diets and intense workout programs never worked for me, because they don’t address the main problem at the source…

Which is the thyroid and how it may not be producing the necessary hormones.

Q: How long will the discount be available?

Unfortunately, the deep discount can’t last forever and is not guaranteed past today.

Q: Will I ever be billed again?

No, this is a one-time only payment.

Q: What if the program doesn’t work for me?

These techniques have changed women’s lives, which is why I wanted to make it as easy as possible for anyone to try it. So I took all the risk so any woman can test it out on me.

If for some reason the program just isn’t a good fit, send me an email, and I’ll gladly provide a timely and complete refund with no questions asked.

Q: I want to get started today. Do I have to wait for anything to be sent to me?

No, instant access will be granted instant digital access to complete Thyroid Factor system. Nothing will be sent in the mail.

Q: Dawn, I’m ready to make a change. What is the next step?

I’m so excited! The first step is to click the “Buy Now” button below, fill out our 100% secure order form, and instant access will be granted to the entire Thyroid Factor system. Plus a Quick Start Guide that will lay out in detail exactly how to get started in the easiest way possible.
