Some symptoms of hyperthyroidism include: Tachycardia – heart rate faster than 100 beats per minute, palpitations – pounding heartbeat, arrhythmia – irregular heartbeat, unintentional weight loss, anxiety, nervousness, or irritability.
Thyroid conditions are easily treated with prescription medications. The best treatment for you will vary depending on your thyroid condition, general health, and other factors such as age. Most people with thyroid disorders take a daily pill and are able to go about their lives normally.
There are some natural remedies that can improve thyroid function when combined with prescription medication. Diet changes are the primary way to naturally heal your thyroid. Eat foods high in vitamin A such as carrots and eggs, increase your iodine intake by eating seafoods such as kelp and nori, up your zinc and protein intake by eating more beef, chicken, nuts and eggs. PlushCare recommends meeting with a doctor to discuss the role of both natural remedies and prescription medications in your thyroid treatment plan.
