This is an excerpt from a previous post from March 4, 2014, but a good one. As I continue to take my great thyroid boosting supplements, the post reminded me of one of the yoga poses that is good for the thyroid….Cobra Pose:
A basic pose to yoga, this exercise puts pressure on the stomach when you lie face down. Benefits include stimulating the heart and lungs, as well as the thyroid, which boosts the immune system. It also massages the kidney and adrenal glands. Lastly, it helps to eliminate constipation.
Bring the heart up to the sky, but be careful not to put too much pressure on the lower back. Go as far as feels comfortable. Hold for 8-10 breaths.
