Can exercising help boost your thyroid? The short answer is yes, but only if you are doing it the RIGHT way.

Too little exercise will have no benefit on your thyroid while overexercising may lower your free T3 and total T3.

How does exercise benefit your thyroid? In 3 main ways:

#1. It reduces your TSH and increases both T3 and T4 levels.
– This is exactly what you want if you are hypothyroid. This combination of changes indicates that your thyroid is able to work on its own.

#2. It reduces inflammation.
– Reducing inflammation can indirectly help your thyroid by improving how much T3 you can create through T4 to T3 conversion. This is also helpful if you have autoimmunity from conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

#3. It improves your metabolism.
– Exercising can also improve your metabolism. Your thyroid controls about 60% of your daily caloric burn so increasing this value up to normal is incredibly important, especially if you are interested in weight loss.

If you have thyroid issues you should also be careful to overexercise. Overexercising can increase your cortisol levels and lower your free T3 and total T3 levels.

You’ll know if you are overexercising based on how you feel (more in the video). You should stick to moderate intensity exercises as well as sustained low-intensity exercises.

Exercises such as yoga, strength training, walking, and moderate intensity exercises are ideal for most people.
