“Hypothyroidism is the disease state in humans and animals caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Cretinism is a form of hypothyroidism found in infants.”
In alternative medicine, there is very little difference in curing hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This is because the treatment involves allowing the thyroid to heal, which will correct either condition. Those with hyperthyroidism should not use iodine, because it could overdrive the thyroid, making the condition worsen.
Please note that curing thyroid disease requires a long-term religious commitment for a period of at least a year. Creating this problem took years of self poisoning, so fixing it is neither quick, nor easy. Hypothyroidism medications are addictive, and the body becomes reliant on them, which is why the mainstream establishment maintains that people must take them forever. Those who have been taking hypothyroidism medications for years must slowly wean themselves from the drugs. Abruptly stopping these medications will result in extreme fatigue, and thyroid problems.
A natural thyroid treatment works to restore proper function to the thyroid gland. Conventional hypothyroidism treatment usually treats an underactive thyroid with hormone replacement therapy. Patients are given synthetic T4, which is supposed to correct levels of TSH and T4 hormones. Unfortunately, many people’s bodies are unable to transform T4 into T3 and therefore still experience hypothyroidism symptoms due to a T3 imbalance. Natural remedies for hypothyroidism help the gland to work again so it produces all the right hormones in the right amonts.
