How to Treat Hyperthyroidism at Home

By    |   Thursday, 28 Apr 2016 06:46 PM

An overactive thyroid gland usually requires medical treatment, but knowing how to treat hyperthyroidism at home can be a helpful supplement to the medications recommended by your physician.

An overactive thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. When it does, the body’s metabolism and other processes speed up to an unnatural degree.

The thyroid gland itself is often not the cause of symptoms, says Dr. Eric Osansky. For example, the autoimmune disorder called Graves’ disease is a very common root cause of hyperthyroidism.

Learning how to treat hyperthyroidism at home naturally can be an attractive option for some patients because of the side effects of conventional medical treatment. Some anti-thyroid medications can even cause drug-induced hypothyroidism by preventing the thyroid from making adequate amounts of thyroid hormone.

Diet can be a good place to start when trying to balance an overactive thyroid, writes endocrinologist Dr. Daesman Suri at EndocrineWeb. She recommends eating a serving of berries each day as an antioxidant boost for the immune system.

Because hyperthyroidism can weaken the bones, Suri suggests incorporating more calcium-rich dairy into your diet combined with foods rich in vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids.

Cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, kale, and cabbage are natural goitrogens that can help slow down an overactive thyroid gland, writes Dr. David Jockers at Natural News.

Dr. Osansky describes other important lifestyle changes for patients learning how to treat hyperthyroidism at home.

He recommends stress management techniques that help with relaxation, getting plenty of sleep, and incorporating regular cardiovascular exercise.

Osansky also warns about the dangers of environmental toxins and advises minimizing exposure, particularly with household products.

Finally, some supplements can be helpful, says Osansky. You should discuss them with your physician to limit the risk of interference with your conventional prescription medications.

For patients with hyperthyroidism, iodine and magnesium can help balance the thyroid if you have a deficiency in these nutrients. Herbal supplements motherwort and bugleweed can help manage your hyperthyroid symptoms.
