If you have a hyperthyroid condition (i.e. Graves' disease, toxic multinodular goiter), then you probably are aware that most endocrinologists will recommend one of the following 3 treatment options:
Option #1: Take antithyroid medication for 1 or 2 years and pray that you will go into remission.
Option #2: Obliterate the thyroid gland through radioactive iodine.
Option #3: Surgically remove the thyroid gland.
While conventional medical treatment is sometimes necessary, it's crazy for doctors to recommend harsh treatment methods such as radioactive iodine and thyroid surgery without trying to address the cause of the problem.
For example, Graves' disease is an autoimmune condition, yet all three treatment options listed above do absolutely nothing to improve the health of the person's immune system.
And these three treatment options don’t do anything to address the cause of other hyperthyroid conditions.
I personally dealt with Graves' disease, and while the endocrinologist I saw didn't pressure me to receive radioactive iodine (she did give me a prescription for Methimazole), she also didn't do anything to find or address the underlying cause.
The good news is that it is possible to avoid radioactive iodine and thyroid surgery and get your health back. After being diagnosed with Graves' disease in the fall of 2008, I was able to restore my health and avoid radioactive iodine, and I've been in remission since 2009. Since then I've helped many people with Graves' disease and other hyperthyroid conditions restore their health and avoid radioactive iodine (and thyroid surgery) as well.
