Iodine - Home remedy for Thyroid Disorders: An iodine-rich diet is critical for those with hypothyroidism. Iodine is an important part of the hormone thyroxin which is produced by the thyroid gland. An underactive thyroid gland does not produce enough of this hormone and this slows down the metabolism. You can increase your iodine intake through dietary choices by eating foods like shellfish, seafood and iodized salt. This compensates for the body's lack of natural iodine production. You can also purchase iodine drops at a health food store. These drops can be added to your food and drinks in order to increase your daily iodine intake.
