How to Treat Graves’ Disease Naturally

If you have been diagnosed with Graves’ Disease, want to avoid taking medication if at all possible, and don’t even want to consider treating your condition with radioactive iodine, then the information you’re about to read can be life changing. I am a licensed healthcare professional and was personally diagnosed with Graves’ Disease. Knowing that this is a serious autoimmune thyroid condition, I honestly wasn’t sure if I would rely on natural treatment methods, even though I without question have a natural mindset.

The problem is that Graves’ Disease can be life threatening if the symptoms are not controlled, and as a result, I didn’t take my high pulse rate and palpitations lightly. I did consider receiving a combination of the conventional medical treatments and the natural treatment protocol, which I do recommend for some patients. But although my pulse rate was much higher than normal (in the mid 90’s, … Read More

Graves’ Disease is labeled as being an incurable condition by most endocrinologists and other medical doctors. However, many holistic doctors have a different viewpoint of this condition. Being a holistic healthcare professional, to no surprise I was open to a natural Graves’ Disease treatment protocol when I was first diagnosed with this condition.

While I wouldn’t label my symptoms as being too severe, it still was tough dealing with the increased pulse rate, and the palpitations made it difficult to fall asleep at times. Add to this the shakiness, weight loss, and increase in appetite, and like many others with Graves’ Disease I was considering taking anti-thyroid drugs to help manage the symptoms. As for radioactive iodine, it really wasn’t presented … Read More

Fighting Gum Disease With the Hydrofloss

Have you ever attempted to remove a screw without a screwdriver? Maybe you have tried to collect leaves without a rake or change a car’s tire with a less-than-adequate jack? Without the right tools, it can be really hard to get a job done properly and efficiently. It might even be impossible to do the job at all.

When it comes to oral health and fighting gum disease, the same concept applies. Manually brushing and flossing are not always potent enough for preventing gum disease and are perhaps even less sufficient for stopping an existing case. However, brushing and flossing can help and are still very important for oral health.

I was told at my dentist’s office that I had lost some of the bone structure supporting my teeth due to moderate gum disease. This was shocking to me because I didn’t know I had gum disease in the first … Read More
