Graves Disease

Five years ago I was diagnosed with Graves disease. My conventional doctor recommended a radioactive iodine treatment that would most probably destroy most if not all of my thyroid function. This suggestion not only went against my personal health values – it terrified me.

I have spent the past five years searching for a way to control my thyroid function naturally, with occasional pharmaceutical support.

One day, in a fit of frustration, I posted something of my fight on this blog. That post quickly rose to the top of my “most viewed” list, so I decided to share more. Here is my story. I’ll hope you’ll share yours. Please leave a comment on one of the below posts or email me at
