Thanks for writing to with your health concern.
Actually, before planning a conception, TSH ideally should be less than 3.0.
There is no natural way to treat this.
If you are planning to conceive, please start Tab. Thyronorm / Eltroxin 25 micrograms once daily.
Repeat TSH after 6 weeks.
If it normalizes, you can plan a pregnancy.
All the best
