My goal in working on this blog is to get the word out that there are natural options available for the various forms of thyroid disease. Today I heard about at 21 year old young woman that was given Radioactive Iodine for treatment of overactive thyroid. I'm sure I gasped when I heard. That is so young to spend the rest of your life without a vital organ. I don't know her specific situation but I do know there are times when more drastic measures cannot be avoided but once Radioactive Iodine or a thyroidecotomy has been done, it cannot be undone. There are, however, natural thyroid supports that can help you to deal with the symptoms that don't go away and also help to minimize the amount of medication that must be taken.
Give me a call at our office (231-421-5213) and I would be happy to talk with you. There is no cost for the initial consultation and it just might give you some guidance that will help you control your condition without taking extreme measures.
It has been almost a year since I was originally tested and I am happy that my symptoms have diminished to the point that I only have a mild occassional recurrence. I know I am still far from being "cured" but I think I am on the right course and look forward to even more improvement in my thyroid health. In the next couple of days I plan to get my thyroid levels retested and I will let you know how things are going from a functional analysis standpoint.
In the next post I will talk about some of the diagnostic testing options that are available at our office. We have access to low cost lab testing locally for those individuals without insurance coverage.
