I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm 45 years old and I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's last year (my levels were 3 times normal), but I haven't gotten on the meds yet - I'd like to try some natural remedies first. Has anyone else tried anything that has worked? I've suffered with absolutely horrible fatigue for the entire year (I literally couldn't get out of bed some days) until 3 months ago when I got on a series of vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplements that I'd given to my sister with cancer. I have zero fatigue now. But...I still have insomnia and a problem with my eyes where they sometimes get blurry and feel like there's a thin film coating one of them - I believe this is inflammation, so I've started taking Bromelain; I'll report back here when I see if that helps.
I've read that there's some evidence of a connection between the thyroid and problems with the gut.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated!
