Coleus forskohlii: Studies conducted in laboratories show that coleus stimulates metabolism. In a recent study, six women took 25 mg of coleus forskohlii twice a day for two months and at the end of the eight-week trial they had lost an average of ten pounds and reduced their percentage of body fat by almost 8 percent. What's more, coleus has proven to increase thyroid hormone production and the release thereof.
These are just a few remedies from Mother Nature that have been used effectively as a natural hypothyroidism treatment. There are many more that have shown to be effective as well and which address different symptoms of low thyroid function. <span style="color:black">However,before you opt for an herbal treatment for hypothyroidism it is always wise to seek your doctor's opinion. Even though herbal and drug interactions may occur they are not always negative. Many of these herbs have proven helpful but your doctor needs to monitor the dose of your medicine closely and adjust it if necessary.
