Dear Hype
If you suffer from hypothyroidism then I trust you have been given thyroid replacement therapy by your dr - if not, then do ask for some. There are no foods to avoid if you are not overweight. Rooibos tea is rich in bioflavonoids which protect us against certain diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
