Why roots for thyroid health?

Roots and fruits are far superior to leafy greens and other above the ground vegetables and work very effectively to restore thyroid balance.

Below the ground vegetables contain a high concentration of nutrients but do not contain anti-metabolic and anti-digestive chemicals.

Roots and tubers are grown beneath the ground and contain antifungal and antimicrobial chemicals to help them ward off underground fungi. These antifungal agents are in support of your own digestive health as they absorb many of the toxins and bacteria that live in your intestines.

We look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi thank you for this wonderful recipe. I sometimes boil my roots for about 60 min and mash them with coconutmilk, it’s very tasty. To save time i don’t peel the skin from the roots. Do you see any problem in eating the skin?

    PS. I don’t eat the skin of potatoes.

    Sorry for my English. I’m a foreigner.

    Thank you.
