A1: I have a daughter with the same problem. Are there alternative treatments for hyperthyroid patients? I don't like the choices she has been given. (PTU or Methimazole)

A2: Check for iodine sufficiency (by 24 hr. urine after challenge) and auto-antibodies (anti thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase) and toxins. If positive auto ab's, look for allergies, gluten sensitivity, etc. Give selenium 200 mcg/day (as selenomethionine or methylselenocysteine) and after a week, start iodine (as ioderal 50 mg/day at least) and consider lithium carbonate (follow lithium levels). Use fish oil (one tablespoon of cod liver oil plus 400 IU vit E) to reduce possible side effects of lithium. Treat toxicity (lead, mercury, etc.) This combination will often reduce hyperthyroidism and auto-immunity. Always be vigilant for thyroid storm and refer for conventional treatment (Tapazol, etc) if necessary.

Good luck,

A3: use lithium (ortate first and then carbonate if the ortate is not working well enough) along with 50-100mg of lugols iodine.....also, support the adrenals with hydrocortisone/dhea......haven't seen this fail yet....

A4: I've had recent success normalizing FT4 & FT3 levels following a protocol offered by FFP Labs (http://www.helpmythyroid.com) when doing iodine testing. My client happened to have elevated bromine levels as well.

A5: Last week I had a great follow up with a patient with hyperthyroidism. She was treated with an individualized approach.
We took her off sugar and fruit because of food sensitivity, digestive enzyme with meals HMF Forte - acidophilus 1cap/day A mild heavy metal chelator Lycopus 10 drops po bid, Parasites were also suspected and treated with an herbal formula.

When I got a copy of the most recent thyroid labs, all the levels were well within the normal ranges.

A6: Iodoral 2-bid along with thyrotrophin 1-tid. Make sure you run raglund's test for adrenal function, many times they are very weak also when thyroid is. Re-Check in 2-3 months with saliva test or barnes test.

A8: More and more I'm seeing patients with lab hyperthyoidism and clinical hypothyroidism. As I researched that I find that histologically, they are the same disease-thyroiditis due to immune system activation and subsequent lymphocytic infiltrates into thyroid tissue. These are the only 2 diseases in which myxedema is pathognomonic, suggesting they are related pahtoogies.
Question is what is it that is activating the immune system? My experience has led me to believe that a fungal infection is at the root of both diseases and the diseases can co-exist. In this case I treat the hyperthyroidism using 2-400mcg of selenium, Germa Clenz sprayed directly on thyroid region,VSL#3 brand probiotic, HCL if hypochlorhydric, sugar/grain free diet, Oregabiotic(or your favorite potent antifungal for the GI tract. Once the inflammation subsides, TSH rises, and the patient will manifest more hypothyroid symptoms (The hypothyroid state normally creates the environment that facilitates yeast overgrowth). Then you treat the hypothyroidism. Regardless of whether my hypothesis is correct, the treatment protocol works without fail.

A10: When did alternative practitioners start boiling down everyone to a quick medical diagnosis with no history or other pertinent information. This is the very thing we try to avoid and try to treat the patient as a person with some abnormalities that are usually symptoms of a larger issue. Maybe we need to back up and quick giving the quick answers to these things unless we understand the larger issues with the patient. Giving someone who obviously understands little of alternative therapies the quick ABC answers is probably not going to do the patient much good and we all stand to lose if our "alternative therapies" don't work because critical information is omitted.
