Question DetailsAsked on 1/25/2012

Are their natural ways to heal a low thyroid other than going on Synthroid

I have been diagnoised with a slow functioning thyroid and the Dr. has recommended that I go on Synthroid. I would rather try a natural approach rather than go on a medication. My thyroid blood test showed the thyroid stimulating hormone to be 6.80 MIU/ML. I would like to know what my alternatives would be in order to consider natural remedies. Thank you in advance for your answer. Pamela Russell

I just finished a book on Iodine,(http://iodine4health.com/basic/books.htm) and the recommendation in there is to take an Iodoral (blend of 2 kinds of iodine). It is best to have your doc do a a full thyroid panel before starting any alternative or synthroid, so its effects can be monitored. One can alternatingly become hyperthyroid and hypothyroid...not to mess with. Good info on http://search.about.com/?q=hypothyroid. Make sure
you are using iodized salt, and kelp/seaweed can be another source of iodine. Vitamins, high protein supplements; lose the junk foods! You'll feel lots better! Get & Stay healthy!
