Post 3 - "Healing Hyperthyroidism the natural way".
I've promised I would keep you up to date on my progress. Three months ago since I started my treatment with Herbal medicine. It has been a slow process, for that's the nature of herbs. It has also been a scary road, and I was so close to giving up and giving in to take drugs. Fortunately, I have found a GP who practices Integrative Medicine, and she has been so supportive. This way I also get my blood tests done. Just the last week I have been feeling great. My heart has settled down, my head is not fuzzy anymore, I have more energy and I am so much more positive. My herbal mix is that of : Bugleweed, Motherwort, Lemon Balm and Hemedesmus. I take this twice a day. Also Magnesium and Hawthorne. In addition I take Metagenics Thyrocalm 3x day. I found since I added this supplement, my health improved. On its own it was not effective, neither were the herbs on its own. But combined they work. Next blood test next week, so we will see how I go. I can do a one hour walk now (slow), and I will be getting back to work next week. I have tried L-Carnitine and my heart went wild; doctor suggested Selenium and my heart did not like that either. What I am trying to say is that there are different supplements which work for different people. It's a matter of trying these out (yes, you will have to put up with the side effects) and eliminating those which do not work for you. All in all, for me less is best. And before I forget, high potency Turmeric capsules have really done wonders for inflammation. For me it is a must. Hope this helps, and please understand that my comments are not a prescription for people with Hyperthyroidism, just a summary of what works for me. Everyone is different.
