Episode - 4 Alternatives to Antithyroid Medication


4 Alternatives to Antithyroid Medication

While many people take antithyroid medications like methimazole and PTU, others prefer a more natural route or simply cannot tolerate those medications.

When I dealt with Graves’ disease, I didn’t take antithyroid medication. Although these alternatives may not be as effective, it was a risk I was willing to take, and it worked for me.

Today I’m sharing the top four alternatives to antithyroid medications, their pros and cons, and key considerations when it comes to dosing.


During this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why some people choose not to take antithyroid medications
  • How bugleweed can help lower thyroid hormone levels and dosage considerations
  • What research shows about the benefits of L-carnitine for hyperthyroidism
  • LDN’s immune system modulation properties and how it can help with autoimmune thyroid conditions
  • How cholestyramine can be used to treat thyroid conditions
  • Other alternatives to antithyroid medications including lemon balm and lithium


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
