Hi, I am looking for some advice.
I have been experiencing many of the symptoms of an overactive thyroid (weight loss, feeling hot, sweaty, anxious, fast heart rate, memory problems, hair loss) and wanted to try to balance things naturally before seeking any medical help (I have heard horror stories about the medical treatment of hyperthyroidism). I started taking bugleweed tincture just over a week ago as I wanted to get started on something asap and it was highly reccommended by a lot of people from various websites and forums. I also sent off for a blood test and at the point of testing I had been taking the bugleweed for about a week. I got the results back today and they are within the normal range, is it possible that the bugleweed has made a difference already?
These are my results:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.07 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE 15.9 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
I know I really should have taken the blood test before doing anything else but I was really deteriorating and wanted to start doing something to help. I guess it is also important to add that I have been starting to feel better on the bugleweed.
