Symptoms of an Overactive Thyroid (Hyperthyroidism)

Hello and Welcome to Symptoms of an overactive thyroid

Symptoms of an Overactive Thyroid (Hyperthyroidism)


I am not medically trained and I am not a scientist.  I have done a lot of research over the years since I started living with a thyroid conditions and was amazed to find out that I did not need to have the radiation treatment that I had.

The radiation treatment only traded one thyroid condition for another.  I was first diagnosed with overactive thyroid and after the treatment I then had underactive thyroid condition.

Only to find out during my research that it is easier to control an underactive thyroid, medically.

So I am sharing the methods that I use to help to reduce my synthetic medication.  My goal is to totally come off this medication by getting it reduced until it cannot be reduced anymore and I am totally off them.

Then I would have reached my ultimate goal of healing my thyroid.  YAY.

Symptoms of an Overactive Thyroid (Hyperthyroidism)
