While many of my patients take antithyroid medication, when I was diagnosed with Graves’ disease in 2008, I chose to take a natural approach to manage my symptoms. I took the herbs bugleweed and motherwort, and they did a wonderful job of managing my symptoms while I worked on addressing the underlying cause of my condition. And while not everyone can successfully manage their symptoms through the use of herbs, many are able to do this, but they don’t know anything about the different options. That’s why I created this episode.
During this episode you’ll learn:
- The different types of herbs used to manage hyperthyroidism, including general dosing guidelines
- Other natural agents that can be used to manage the hyperthyroid symptoms
- The benefits and risks of using potassium iodide for symptom management
- Can you take medication (i.e. methimazole) and natural agents (i.e. bugleweed) at the same time?
