Before we get into home remedies for thyroid, lets talk about the worst things to eat.
Refined foods, saturated fats, sugars, and white flour products are among the worst foods a person can eat when combating thyroid peoblems. If the thyroid problem is really severe, then it’s a good idea to avoid brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, kale, mustard greens, peaches and pears, since they all contain anti-thyroid substances and may suppress thyroid function.
A diet with at least 50% of the foods you eat being fresh and organically grown will establish a better metabolism. The enzymes from live foods help the body to maintain proper metabolism.
Foods that heal include sprouts, salads, raw vegetables, and cooked grains to help feed the glands.

Home remedies for thyroid also include foods rich in zinc, like beef (organic), oatmeal, chicken (organic), seafood, dried beans, bran, tuna, spinach, seeds, and nuts. Foods rich in copper include, organ meats (organic), eggs, yeast, legumes, nuts, and raisins.
Another thing that helps the thyroid is amino acid tyrosine. Tyrosine is found in edamame, beef, chicken, and fish. Soy should be used rarely.
Black and red radishes have been used by doctors in Russia for hypothyroidism and should be added to your diet as well.
