Brief Answer:
None

Detailed Answer:
There is no scientific recommendation for any homeopathic solutions for hypothyroidism.
If she truly has hypothyroidism she must be given appropriate doses of a prescription medication called levothyroxine. This is vital for her optimal growth and development.
Once she is on levothyroxine, there is no dietary intervention necessary.
Regular blood tests will be necessary to ensure she is getting adequate amounts of levothyroxine
