Apple in the form of a sauce/orange as a wedge are less processed & give a blend of protein and fiber that are better for babies. Juices are basically like giving a kid a coke. ...Read more

Radish may help the thyroid, but I am skeptical given the lack of research. And no one knows how much. ...Read more

Can a thyroid patients take aloe Vera juice regularly?

Probably but...: As far as I can tell no one knows for sure. There was one study showing a reduction of T3 and T4 in mice given aloe, but that doesn't mean it would do the same for people. Some recommend it for hyperthyroidism and thyroiditis because it helps balance immune function but I don't know of studies on this. I consider it benign and it does have proven benefits. Likely safe but monitor thyroid function. ...Read more

See a doctor: If you have a true thyroid problem, especially one severe enough to cause hair loss, then you need to see your primary doctor and/or endocrinologist. Thyroid supplementation (prescription) will make you feel much better and improve your symptoms. Low thyroid (if very severe) can eventually become life threatening, so don't just try home remedies! ...Read more
