Thyroid options 2
2. The second type of thyroid dysfunction is called Grave’s disease. This is also an autoimmune disease, meaning that the immune system has turned against the body and is attacking the thyroid. Symptoms are weight loss, fluid in the legs, and bulging eyes. This is followed by symptoms of low thyroid after the gland has been partially destroyed. Like most autoimmune diseases, this condition is also more common in women and will only really occur if menses are off or there is any sort of PMS or irregular cycle. By balancing out the cycles we normalize the immune system and stop its attack on the body, naturally. I have seen major improvements in symptoms of Grave’s disease without having to surgically or radioactively destroy the thyroid. If you do destroy the gland, you will need replacement hormones for the rest of your life. Think carefully and consider Naturopathy.
