guduchi, turmeric, and holy basil,

vitamins shops carry these, take them in pill form or empty them and make a tea, if you can’t find the powder form.

an old remedy for increasing the immune system.

I'm a big fan of immune boosters.
Vitamin C and Garlic are also good for that.
Anything that is an antioxidant. I find natural remedies to be extremely beneficial.

My thyroid starting being sluggish after 40, I stopped the prescription medication about two yrs ago because it was just slowly depleting the thyroid by taking synthetic thyroid hormones the body pretty much shuts it down. been taking Ashwagandha levels normal doing good. it only works for under active thyroid it helps to increase the thyroid function. that herb too helps balance the immune system and blood sugars it’s a good herb to.

Yes Ashwagandha also aids in the balance of the entire system, I would add to it a few drops of Atomidine (an iodine supplement)
5 the first day 4 the second, 3 the third, 2, then 1 then break a week then again - it helps restart the thyroid

cool haven’t heard of it I’ll check it out thanks.

There is a company nhc.com that makes a product called I-Thriod in a couple of mg levels but it has three different types of Iodine/Iodide/potassium in one dose. I’ve tried it before using ashwagandha think I might get some more it’s not to expensive. Here’s the low dose ingredients.

Iodide 3.75mg
---(from Potassium Iodide USP)
Iodine USP 2.5mg
---(from Free Iodine USP)
Potassium 1.2mg
---(from Potassium Iodide USP)

I have low/hypo thyroid and had a big goiter before. I haven't tried Ashwagandha, does it seem like it boosts the energy level as well as the immune system? Also, did I-Thyoid help with energy?

Yes ashwagandha is very good for the immune system and energy, yours is hypo like mine this herb will no doubt help, it has helped me to get off the synthetic hormones,

the best synthetic are one from pigs thyroid, nature-throid, I use this until I switched completely to ashwagandha

Some more boosters,

Moringa, black elderberry and Ashwagandha

these are more available through local outlets then the OP, I have been using Ashwagandha for my thyroid for 2 years but Ashwagandha is excellent also at boosting the immune

of coarse can’t leave out the Vitamin C a huge immune supporter as well, possibly at the top of list.

the original posted have greatly help those who get malaria and other viruses and infections, guduchi is near the top for fighting infections and viruses easing the symptoms of the infected.

Guduchi is a little harder to get i have just ordered some through Swanson vitamins the price is reasonable.

Kelp or kelp salt is good for underactive thryoid.
seaweed has many minerals and great immune booster. You do need iodine.

I have heard echinacea is also good.
