Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism:

© What Doctors Don't Tell You (Issue 137)

Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism: A reader with hyperthyroidism believes her condition is linked to Graves' disease and she is suffering from various symptoms including muscle and bone atrophy. She wanted to know what alternative treatments there were for her condition besides drugs such as Tapizole? Recommended alternative treatments include traditional Chinese medicine; acupuncture; homeopathy; nutritional supplementation; good diet (one reader has read that brassica vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, collard greens and pak choi have a regulating effect on the thyroid gland); and lifestyle changes. Whichever therapy you choose, the important thing is to not delay treatment, warns one reader. These disorders open the patient up to a "thyrotoxic storm" with serious consequences, she says. To help combat bone atrophy, a reader suggests doing some weight-bearing exercises to strengthen the bones.
