Hi, For graves disease pls consult a acupuncture treatment. I had graves disease and I took acupuncture treatments and now it is completely cured.
HI..I have had bulging eyes for 13 years from Graves' Disease..now I have find the answer..bulging and swelling eyes gone because I am using apricot seeds...please try it. I just want to help anyone in the same condition as I am.
By taking 500 mg of Ashwaghandha twice a day, i.e after breakfast and after dinner, all my symptoms of Hyperthyroidism/ graves disease came down in two weeks and I am permanently cured. If this remedy works for you, continue the treatment for one and a half years since it takes a long time for the adrenal glands to heal (see article by Dr. Axe for the connection between adrenals and thyroid glands).
I also took and continue to take Patanjali's Madhunashini Vati and Mukta Vati to stabilise blood sugar and blood pressure, both of which were not normal due to hyperthyroidism. Now I take no allopathic medicine at all.
Ashwaghandha is also curing my melasma which was on my entire back, hands and face. This is happening gradually and permanently.
Hi, I was diagnosed with graves disease 6 yrs ago, I was terrified, especially after seeing the horrible pictures of people on TED Talks! Do not look these up in the internet (huge mistake) anyway 3 days after having a radioactive scan uptake test ((RAIU) to get a diagnosis, the eye symptoms started......I was on carbimazole for 8 months and was then very lucky to go into remission, I know that this is unusual and feel very fortunate, I have been in remission ever since, and do not need any medication.....
I was also very lucky that my eye disease was very mild though it took about 2 yrs to actually become inactive, my right eye was the one which had some mild proptosis and has remained slightly bigger than the left, but people tell me it's not noticeable, I quess only to me :-) and I can only say to anyone with Graves disease and TED, do NOT agree to Radioactive Iodine treatment (which is a type of internal radiotherapy for thyroid cancer) this can def make the eye symptoms worse, or even set it off in people who don't have eye problems!
This can also happen with any medical procedure requiring radioactive injections (i know, I had a sintigram 4 yrs after inactive eye disease and bam, 3 weeks later started with symptoms again! ) and definitely take Selenium supplements and Magnesium, these are the only supps I take, very very important and I believe stops the eye problems from developing or getting worse.
Lastly, Graves disease CANNOT be cured as some have suggested on this forum, it is with you for life, but can be controlled and can stay in remission for a lifetime, so it is NOT the end of the world and there are far worse illnesses to have....all the best to everyone xx
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

I just started taking BUGLEWEED extract more than month ago. I take 20 (pipette) drops X 3 time a day. My doctor told me. that it will take year/years to cure myself but I am already feel a bit better. Take care
I have had graves disease for about 4 years now. I had an overactive thyroid which was removed 3 years ago but my eyes are still bulging and swollen around the eye area. I am so depressed with looking "like a frog" and would appreciate any advice. I take levothyroxin 150mg daily but this doesn't help the eye disease. I really don't want to have surgery although I couldn't yet anyway as the disease is "still active" I have read the bugleweed can help but I'm not sure how I should take it. I have just today started taking apple cider vinegar supplements in capsule form. Please help me as this disease has already ruined my relationship and depleted my self confidence.
My wife took 4 drops of bugelweed (orally) every day for nearly two years (2006 -2008) in order to treat and eventually "cure" Grave's disease. During those years she increased and decreased the dose to check for changes in the symptoms which were -- increased heart rate (at night especially) sleeplessness, and agressiveness/intolerance. She increased or decreased the dose accordingly.
That was nearly 3 years ago and she's now clear.
Our GP had not heard of it and a specialist advised against its use.

re: graves cure -- The herb Bugleweed (Lycopus virginicus) has long been used in Europe for treating hyperthyroidism. Bugleweed can be used alone for mild conditions or in combination with anti-thyroid drugs. It works by inhibiting iodine uptake and metabolism, reducing the amount of hormone produced by active cells and it reduces the activity of TSI, the antibodies responsible for Graves' disease. The leaf extract of bugleweed is more active than root extracts. A tincture (alcohol extract) equivalent to 20 mg of the drug is more effective than a tea. If bugleweed is used as a tea, amounts as high as 1-2 grams daily can be used. Lycopus is often used in combination with Melissa officianalis (lemon balm). Although the effects of herbal preparations are mild compared to anti-thyroid drugs, herbs such as bugleweed should not be withdrawn suddenly. As with anti-thyroid drugs, herbs should be weaned with steadily decreasing doses as improvement is noted. The variety Lycopus europaeus (gypsywort) is reported to be as effective as bugleweed.
Most definately Virgin Coconut Oil is soothing to the thyroid. My friend has Graves' disease, she swears by it. She mixes it in her AM shakes and cooks with it.
I am a 70 years old man. I am interested in sports: tennis, golf, cycling, alpine skiing, cross country skiing.
Two years ago I got sick of Grover's Disease. The whole body had a lot of itchy Grover's Disease.
I used a lot of hydrocortisone and other oils. There was no benefit from these.
I stopped eating the whole wheat. All the rash Grover's Disease was lost in two weeks.
I tried twice to eat wheat, Grover's Disease immediately came back.
Now it's good to be, not Grover's Disease. I am happy when I found the cause of Grover's Disease
Now I live a happy athlete's life, not Grover's Disease, no wheat.
Hi. I came across a couple of sites that talk about eye exercises for bulging eyes from Grave's disease but didn't really explain what to do. I suffererd from bulging eyes for years until 2 weeks ago when I did eye exercises. I put a couple of drops of moisture eye drops in my eyes, laid down and started moving my eyes around (while eyes closed) and looked as far right, left, up and down as I could to where I felt pressure in my eyes while doing it. I felt a tingling sensation behind my eyes. The more I moved my eyes around the more the sensation would go away. The next day my eyes started to return to normal.
It's been about 2 weeks and my eyes have returned to normal! I do the exercises while laying down just about everyday. Please let me know if this works for anyone!

Help for Graves Disease Eye Trouble
I have had Graves disease for a couple of years. I have not had a lot of trouble with eye protrusion, but I have suffered several severe struggles with dry, crusty, scratchy, painful eyes. The first round was helped by antithyroid meds. But for the last bout I was no longer on meds. I found that flaxseed oil was very helpful. I have been taking it for a few months now, 1 tablespoon with breakfast, another with supper (on some food). There seems to be a fairly predictable correlation between when my flaxseed oil habit gets interrupted and the return of eye symptoms (which reminds me to get back to the oil).

Hi I just want to say DONT do RAI or surgery. Why would you remove an organ in your body that is the victim of your immune system. Your thyroid is not the problem it is actually your immune system. I was diagnosed 3 years ago but I know that I have had it since I was a child. Looking back I can remember episodes of hypo and hyper at different points of my life. I have been to an endo who perscribed methimazole. I stopped that about 6 months in when my hair was coming out in clumps and my lab tests were not getting better. Of course my endo wanted me to get rid of my thyroid because Dr's don't like diseases that they don't have control over. If you get rid of your thyroid they can give you fake thyroid for the rest of your life. Not to mention hypo is less fatal in comparison to hyper.
I went to two naturopaths. The first helped a little but the second was the one who helped most. His idea of treating the whole body not just the thyroid really made sense. He started by addressing my immune system which for some reason was attacking my thyroid. He placed me on desicated thymus gland (thymus is part of your immune system that dr's believe is useless to us after childhood). He also tested me for food allergies. I had so many intolerances that I was absolutely shocked. Gluten, dairy, peanuts, almonds. Things that I had been eating in huge amounts. He explained that it might be possible for me to stop all of the intolerant food for six months and I might be able to begin eating some of them again. Gluten it seems was the main culprit. I stoped all for six months and the only one I cannot tolerate now is Gluten. My naturopath explained to me that Gluten is like a bat and when I ingest it, I am hitting my immune system with it as if it were a bee hive. My immune system freaks out and begins attacking my thyroid, adrenals, skin etc.... It made sense to me that. I can have one crouton and I will have a dabilitating migraine and trembles etc. Anyhow I started taking many suppliments as well.
*copper (hypers are usually deficient)
*selenium (hypers and hypos are usually deficient)
*magnesium (helps heart palps)
*potassium (helps heart thumping)
calcium (muscle and bone weakness)
D3 (I was difficient as most people are)
iron ( anemia and to counter the copper intake)
valarian (sleeplessness and stress)
chromium and green tea ( stress and muscle weakness)
Relora (adrenal fatigue that was due to stress)
I know it's alot but they all have a purpose....
Spanish Black Radish (just started recently and is supposed to help sooth graves and release bile from liver)
B Compex (for everything:)
Vit A, C, E, as well.
I am completely in remission now and have been for over a year. I believe that the thymus support was the start of my healing and the * suppliments are the most important ones for maintaining my health at this point.
My 15 year old daughter was diagnosed about 10 months ago. I have skipped the endo and gone for the same treatment that helped me. So far she is getting better and on the rode to remission.
Please don't have surgery to remove an organ that is so important to your health and well being. Afterall it isn't the thyroids fault right. Focus your treatment on the real problem. Your immune system and why it is attacking you. God bless and good health to you all.

I had very bad hyperthyroidism a few years back along with the bulging eyes. They were very dry and very large. I found drinking 100% goji berry juice gave immediate relief within 24 -48 hours.
Goji's are from the Himalaya's and grown and used extensively for eye health there. This juice changed my life, no more pain and within a short time they looked and felt normal again. Try the dried berries as well perhaps.
Good luck with it.
