green smoothies for hypothyroidism

Hi,

    I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism an year back. I was on synthroid 0.025mcg for 3 months then increased to 0.05mcg from then. I had big pimples with puss all over my body and mostly on face and dry skin on face and too much dandruff conditions, But no constipation. I do yoga every morning 5 days a week for 1 hour from past 3 years
.
My family doctor sent me to blood work. He called me again to tell that the medicine strength need to be increased.

   Is there any way to keep this thyroid level under control?

   How far the green smoothies (spinach and fruits smoothies) help for hypothyroidism? Do I need to mix any more products into the green smoothies?

   Thanks in advance

If you have true hypothyroidism then medication like synthroid is necessary.  Hypothyroidism can decrease sexual function and interest.  I don't have any experience with green smoothies.
