You look in the mirror and you are not satisfied with your image, especially when you have an unsightly double chin? It is time to get rid of goiter, by implementing the following remedies!
The appearance of goiter can have two causes: medical (thyroid enlargement) and genetic (fat deposition in this region of the neck as a result of predisposition to body fattening). Regardless of its nature, most people want to get rid of it. To have a beautiful neck and no goiter, follow our advice.
1. Herbal infusions
Now, I know you will hear some of these names of plants for the first time, but you should find them at a herbal store or something close to that.
Black Grass: Put 20 g grass leafs (Juncus gerardii it has reddish-brown flowers and dark green leaves, oblong, with a sharp point) in 250 ml boiling water and leave to infuse for 10 minutes. When cool, do gargle with this tea twice a day for 30 days.
Lady’s Bedstraw: Also known as Galium verum, this plant does wonders for goiter. Gargle every morning and evening with it. Put a teaspoon of Lady’s Bedstraw in 250 ml boiling water and leave to infuse for 10 minutes. Gargle while this tea is still slightly warm. Treatment lasts 30 days, with a break of two weeks.
Rosehip: Also known as Rosa canina, Rosehip tea is also very good against goiter. Prepare every night your 250 ml infusion from this fruit. Put 20 g of rosehip in boiling water and leave to infuse for 10 minutes. Drink this tea with small sips when it gets a little cooler.
2. Adequate nutrition
To avoid goiter or to remove it you need a healthy, balanced diet. Your menu should be rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and low in fat. Do not avoid fruits and vegetables. Iodine should not miss in your diet. You can assimilate it from products such as onions, peanuts and all the sea food (a daily intake of iodized salt can be sufficient).
3. Neck Exercises
Very helpful in combating goiter are exercises that include this area of the neck. Sit down on a armchair and lift your chin as far as you can from your chest, with eyes targeted on the ceiling. Stay in this position for 10 seconds, then slowly revert to the original position. Repeat the exercise 10 times every night.
4. Massage your chin
Another remedy that has proved effective: massage the chin with your backhand from the top down to the neck, three times a day for five minutes. Also with the backhand, hit your goiter from bottom to top, with rapid movements for 2-3 minutes every night, but also during the day, when you remember. Repeat at least 15 times.
Poultices are very helpful
a) Use clay poultices during the night by applying them on your neck in an inch thick layer. Repeat this treatment twice a week.
b) Cabbage leaves crushed and applied on the neck during the night as a poultice are also very effective against goiter. Follow this treatment for 2-3 months, twice a week.
