Best Natural Remedies for Treating Hyperthyroidism...
My mother was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and Grave's disease. She is 88 years old and has grown so thin. She has lost her appetite and tries to eat but she has basically lost her sense of taste. May I know what are some of the best natural and home remedies for hyperthyroidism?
Hello. The two most common causes of hyperthyroidism are an inflamed thyroid and Graves disease. Both of these disorders are the result of an immune system and gut that aren't working properly. Because 70% of your immune system is located in your gut, by fixing your intestinal problems you inadvertently fix other problems including hyperthyroidism. Taking a good quality probiotic supplement and trying to eat cultured (fermented) foods if possible is extremely important.
Seaweed is also very important for the thyroid gland. It has a balancing effect on the thyroid and helps with both an under active and over active thyroid. You can take seaweed in supplemental form. Finally, Himalayan pink rock salt is excellent for hyperthyroidism. The strong balance of minerals it contains also helps the thyroid a great deal. Use pink rock salt in your cooking and to salt whatever healthy foods you can eat (or in this case, your mum can eat) as much as you possibly can.
