In brief: Sometimes but...

It is hard to know why someone develops hypothyroidism.
Sometimes nutrients like iodine, tyrosine & selenium stimulate thyroid function, as can some herbs like ashwagandha. But if you have thyroiditis don't stimualte! many environmental toxins suppress thyroid function so detoxification may help. Homeopathy can also help. I advise working with a holistic doc-see http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors.
