From incurable to a cure for an autoimmune disease known as Graves’ disease—why not make lifestyle changes today that can improve your life and vitality?

Graves’ disease (GD), an autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD), is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism, or overproduction of the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). GD symptoms include heart palpitations, hair loss, nausea, masses in the neck (goiters), skin issues, vision/eye problems, weight loss, moodiness, depression, and gut problems.[i]
Common conventional treatments start with anti-thyroid medications such as methimazole and propylthiouracil. Possible side effects of anti-thyroid drugs are skin rash, itching, hives, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, headache, joint or muscle aches, loss of taste, and a metallic taste.

Harsher follow-up treatments for 50 percent of patients include radioiodine therapy or surgery.[ii] These treatments cause hypothyroidism, requiring thyroid medications for life.
