Does Anyone Know a Natural Alternative to Hormone Therapy

Hi! I was currently diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and put on Synthroid. I was told that there were no comparable natural healing methods for this, other than Armour, and I would like to treat this with Chinese Herbs and or acupuncture. Can anyone help?

I've been reading on alternative treatments b/c of a recent shaking attack and I've been having hot flashes near my period. A dr, Dr Sellman, a naturopathic dr, has lots of info on how to balance your hormones and what causes thyroid problems. I would try seeing a naturopathic dr. too.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.I would not stop you from using chinese herbs or herbal remedies but stopping synthroid is highly unapproved and should be continued at any cost.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
