Hyperthyroidism a.k.a thyrotoxicosis is an overactive thyroid that restricts the functioning of your organs and overall metabolism. The hyperthyroidism symptoms are pretty evident as it may lead to sudden weight loss, sleep disorders, anxiety as well as excessive sweating. However, hyperthyroidism treatment can be conducted after a proper diagnosis and home remedies definitely help.
The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland significant for the maintenance and upkeep of all your body organs. It produces two types of hormones: Tetraiodothyronine (T4) as well as Triiodothyronine (T3). These are responsible for proper distribution of energy to the cells. When either or both the hormones are secreted excessively, it leads to thyrotoxicosis.

1. Bugleweed Is Effective Hyperthyroidism Treatment.
Since bugleweed is an anti-thyroid herb, it inhibits the production of T4 hormones as well as its conversion to T3 hormones. Therefore, prepare a tea by adding one teaspoon of dry bugleweed leaves in about 200ml of water. Steep for 8-10 minutes, strain, and drink. You can also add lemon along with some honey for taste.
2. Oats Soothe The Hyperthyroidism Symptoms.
Since oats are natural relaxants, they help soothe your system overall. These are enriched with omega-3 fatty acid, fiber, minerals as well as essential vitamins to alleviate restlessness, increasing appetite and indigestion. Oatmeal makes a healthy breakfast option. Have oats with some milk and honey.
3. Lemon Balm Reduces Overactive Thyroid.
Since lemon balm extract limits the production of excess thyroid hormone, you can take it regularly. Prepare a warming lemon balm tea and consume it daily before going to bed. This will eventually treat the symptoms.
4. Long Pepper Assists Hyperthyroidism Treatment.
In equal quantities, mix some ground long pepper, black pepper as well as dry ginger powder. Take half a teaspoon of this with a glass of lukewarm water. Since the ingredients are anti-thyroid, they relieve nausea.
