Borax

Borax works for Hyperactive Thyroid/Grave's Disease - at least, for me.

I'm a 59 year old female who's had Grave's Disease/Hyperthyroidism since 2006.

After a botched R.A.I. treatment that I was bullied into having in 2009, which killed off the left side of my thyroid and exacerbated the right side, I flushed all meds and refused to see another doctor ever again.

That was the first right decision I made.

Being normally very petite in stature, I was the 'lucky' statistical 1-in-10,000 to actually gain weight the worse the condition became, rather than lose weight, as most normally do.

It's been difficult finding information on Borax for this condition and if you do, it seems to be only vaguely mentioned; rather, 'hormone balancing' seems to be the catchphrase used most often rather than specifics, so I ordered some anyway to see whether it might help or not because frankly, I'd tried just about everything else over the years, to no avail.

I began taking Borax in earnest 6 weeks ago. That was the second right decision I made.

The recommended 'concentrate' to make up is 1 level teaspoon in 1 litre (about 30 or so oz) of water.

I take 20 mls of the concentrate in a glass of water 3 or 4 times a day, usually with a meal just so I remember to take it, but not always with a meal.

There's no taste or smell to Borax used in this way; it just tastes like water in water.

*Note: At first, I only took 5mls of concentrate 3 or 4 times a day, but the only change I saw for the first 2 weeks was that all of the excess weight I'd gained fell off, which I hadn't expected - and it has stayed off.*

So I raised the dose to 20mls of concentrate in water 3 or 4 times a day and have been doing so ever since, with the occasional day or two break from it.

The most visually obvious change (aside from the weight loss) is the right hand side of my thyroid, which is no longer protruding/enlarged.

If I touch it, it feels only slightly larger than normal. This I find to be remarkable - and most encouraging - after all these years.

I'm no longer shaking like a human jackhammer 24/7 (part and parcel of the illness) and that's a pretty big deal for me!

I do still very occasionally shake, but haven't yet figured out what sets it off and it doesn't last very long in any event. It may be triggered by a sudden bout of stress.

My heart rate no longer pounds ferociously almost constantly, although it's still irregular (sinus arrhythmia), but should it decide to start doing the tango in my chest again, drinking a glass of very cold/icy water settles it down rather smartly (probably shocks it).

Have had no thyroid storms whatsoever during this past 6 weeks, which were almost a regular occurrence. Another big deal for me.

I'm no longer falling over at the drop of a hat due to weakened bones (which, I hasten to add, only became weak following the R.A.I. treatment).

My bones feel so much stronger and I can walk sure-footed once again.

My eyes are still a little bit 'buggy/bulgy' (another symptom that only arose after the R.A.I. treatment) but nowhere near as much as they were before I began taking Borax.

So although I wouldn't say the condition is '100% cured', I can say that Borax has achieved remarkable things that I didn't expect and didn't dare hope for.

I would say my health is about 85% improved - better than it's been since 2006.

As I've only been taking it for 6 weeks, it could well be that, over time and with continued use, my thyroid might become completely normal again, despite only one side of it having survived the R.A.I. treatment and having to function alone.

Certainly nothing else I've read about and tried has produced such remarkable results for me personally.
