Do Holistic Measures Treat Graves' Disease?

By    |   Monday, 19 Aug 2013 09:48 AM

Question: My wife has Graves' disease and medicine doesn’t help her. Are there holistic or alternative measures that can help?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder where the thyroid enlarges. Changes often occur to the soft tissues supporting the eye, causing it to bulge. It is important for your wife to be under specialty supervision for her thyroid. This is usually done by an endocrinologist.
 
This disease can be controlled, and she needs to seek or request an endocrinology consultation so her condition can be properly managed. There are no holistic or alternative measures recommended for this autoimmune condition, which left unchecked, can be very difficult to manage properly.
