What is Graves' Disease?
Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism, and is the result of the immune system producing antibodies to a protein on the thyroid gland that normally regulates the production of hormones. This autoimmune disease causes an overproduction of thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism, body temperature, menstrual cycle, and heart and nervous system function. Graves' disease is most common in women and in people under the age of 40.
Symptoms of Graves' disease include anxiety, irritability, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, irregular heartbeat, increased sweating, hand tremors, weight loss, reduced libido, bulging eyes known as Graves' ophthalmopathy, and thick, red skin on the shins and feet known as Graves' dermopathy. Graves' ophthalmophaty can also include eye dryness, pain or eye pressure, light sensitivity, double vision, and difficulty making eye movements.

[YEA] Hi everyone, I'd like to add an update on my uses of HP. I use the inhaled method, 10 squirts, twice in a row, usually 2 or 3 times a day,and am so very happy with it. I no longer have broncitis! I was dignosed with Graves disease Dec 06 which caused terrible jitters and rapid heartbeats. I inhale the HP when this happens and within minutes the jitters and rapid heartbeat subside! I can't thank Earthlink.com enough! I tell all my friends about HP and to email Bill Munro, and I tell that Bill will call them back promptly! A special thanks to Bill
