I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism roughly 3 years ago. I also have multiple toxic nodules and cysts on my thyroid to make matters more interesting. At the time of my diagnosis, I was a 24 year old young woman, with no family support, no knowledge of what was happening to me, and frightened beyond belief. The scariest part was...I thought I was a healthy person. I managed to keep a well balanced diet and intense work out routine. This news floored me. The doctors gave me 2 so called "options" and told me I had the choice of which option suited me. The options were radioactive iodine or surgery to remove half my thyroid, with a possiblilty of being on mediction for the rest of my life. YOU CALL THESE OPTIONS??? Sounds like a lifetime of suffering and perscription drugs!! Long story short...I tried my own way. And opinion after opinion, doctor after doctor, I was more confused than when I started. Until a good friend intoruced me to a supplement that saved her life. I have always believed in allowing your body the time and opportunity to heal itself...afterall, that's what we were designed to do...and this supplement gives your body all of the tools it needs to repair itself. In just 3 short months of taking this all natural supplement, my T4 free levels went from way above average to the mid range of the average spectrum. I truly feel blessed and thank God for giving me this supplement to allow my body to begin repairing itself. The moral of my story...I want to help others with similar stories. I don't want to see or hear of anymore women having to endure these invasive, unnatural procedures that dont really fix the issue but only mask the true problem with a more "treatable" issue. Dr's dont always have the answers...so its up to us to manage our own health and wellness. This supplement has truly changed my life! And not only has it helped my hypertyrodism, but also gives me more energy in my daily life. I feel better now at 27, than I did in my early 20's. I wish the same results and happiness for you...

sigh. You do know you sound like a tv comercial? all thats missing is the cry of *THREE EASY PAYMENTS OF 19.95!!*

I like how you purposely didn't name the magic elixer.

thyroid function can fluxuate...exspecially graves disease. Please keep a yearly appt with your endocrinologist to keep tabs on where your free T4 and tsh are.

untreated hyperthyroidism can lead to some pretty ugly complications. If you plan on having children please be tested regularly while ttc and pregnant - untreated hyperthyroidism can cause misscarrage in the first and third trimester.
