Herbal Remedies For Thyroid Cysts

Herbal remedies are taking over the drug industry at a very fast rate and many are increasingly using them to treat all kind of ailments or as supplements. However, a lot of side effects of these herbs are not widely known as the manufacturers of these herbs are usually not required to send proof of safety and efficacy to the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) for approval before being dispatched. Recent researches are showing that some herbal remedies do indeed have side effects as follows: Ginko Biloba has been reported to cause spontaneous bleeding. St. Johns wort is known to cause gastrointestinal problems, allergic issues, exhaustion, confusion, a dry mouth, and photosensitivity. If you manifest these side effects, you may need to seek medical attention. Herbal supplements are also useful and can be taken daily as they are often very rich in vitamins and minerals especially calcium and magnesium. Common herbal supplements are St. Johns Wort, ginseng, fennel and Echinacea. Some of the household plants such as rosemary, basil and garlic are also considered herbs and have powerful therapeutic properties. They can be incorporated into many meals and are usually best to be taken raw as heat could sometimes reduce their healing properties Ephedra (Mahuang)is responsible for causing insomnia, nervousness, hypothermia, tremor, severe headaches, seizure, myocardial infarction, kidney stones. Kava could cause lingual dyskinesia, sedation, torticollis, enhancement of Parkinson's disease, oculogyric crisis, intense movements of the trunk, and rashes. In addition, certain herbs are known to produce severe side effects if taken with commercial pharmaceutical drugs. For example, Gingko Biloba may produce more severe bleeding in patients that also take aspirin and warfarin, Ephedra may produce hallucination-like symptoms if taken with alcohol or caffeine. A study also shows that approximately 25% of patients consulting doctors for serious ailments opt to use alternative medicines while only 70% of them are telling their doctors about it. Therefore, every patient must consult their physicians as well as herbalists before taking any herbal remedy and must adhere to prescribed dosage. This is because herbal medicines could have the effects of drugs such as marijuana which can be very dangerous if they are taken unknowingly with other commercial drugs and without proper guidance for a long period of time. Overall herbal remedy cures offer a much more cost effective advantage verse over the counter medicine. The pros far outway the cons and I suggest everyone should at least look into herbal remedies to help cure an illness or at least use as a preventive measure.

    Please help?! Any natural remedies for helping treat hyperthroidism?? Herbal or natural?
    Hi, I'm 26 years old and have been battling hyperthroidism for 2 years I have tried Meds and it's not for me..:( my levels are still high and I was feeling super tired and depressed during the treatment, iodine is not an option for me at this time. I beg you to please respect that, therefore any natural remedies you may know or heard will help me so very much... It is greatly appreciated i know if you have been through these issues at an early age you will really understand :)

    • ANSWER:
      An over active thyroid can be troublesome. Generally speaking, a gland will enlarge or develop cysts like the ovaries when there are deficiencies. The thyroid is part of the pituitary axis that consists of the thyroid, pituitary, adrenals, and ovaries (assuming you are a woman). All these glands work together as a team and if one gets sick, they all get sick together.

      You may have an issue with one of the other glands in that axis that is contributing to the problem. It also may be that you are not able to convert the T4 to the T3 easily and this can definitely be due to ZINC deficiency. If you have any infection in the parathyroid gland this can also contribute to this.

      The first thing to look at is your teeth though. If you have ANY ROOT CANALS, I would start there. Dentists are NOT good at dealing with this issue because they were simply not trained to do so in dental school. They can't even recognize NICO (neuralgia induced cavitational osteonecrosis) on their typical dental x-rays. This poses a problem because doctors have absolutely NO clue about all this either and dentists and doctors do not seem to talk.

      I have found several cases were the thyroid function was greatly affected by the infection in the teeth area. This is especially true if you are experiencing NICO that is in simple terms, deterioration of the jaw bone and it is due to infection in the bone just below the root canal. Most root canal work in America today is terrible. The way it's done actually invites NICO to happen and since there is no pain involved, it is ignored, not an issue dentists typically deal with and you, the patient, ends up with the booby prize with things like hyperthyroid, sinus infections that can and many times are chronic where doctors just keep treating the symptoms and it never seems to get resolved.

      When you say iodine is not an option, I'm not sure why, but without any history on that it is not possible to comment. I agree with "Mr.E" in that chiropractic can also help greatly with this issue. Allowing the nerve passageways to open up will greatly help the function of the thyroid.

      I strongly believe that you do NOT have a drug deficiency that is causing this and to treat it with a drug only relieves the symptom, possibly, but does nothing to heal you or get to the root of the problem.

      good luck to you

    • ANSWER:
      Cyst on your thyroid? You should probably get that removed. It might help alot!!
      During an episode of SVT, the heart s electrical system doesn't work right, causing the heart to beat very fast. The heart beats at least 100 beats per minute and may reach 300 beats per minute. After treatment or on its own, the heart usually returns to a normal rate of 60 to 100 beats a minute.
      Some people with SVT have no symptoms. Others may have:

      Palpitations, a feeling that your heart is racing or pounding.
      A pounding pulse.
      A dizzy feeling or may feel lightheaded.
      Other symptoms include, near-fainting or fainting (syncope), shortness of breath, chest pain, throat tightness, and sweating.
      To treat sudden episodes of SVT, your doctor may:

      Prescribe a medicine to take when the SVT occurs.
      Show you how you can slow your heart rate on your own. You may be able to do this by coughing, gagging, or putting your face in ice-cold water. These are called vagal maneuvers.
      If these treatments don't work, you may have to go to your doctor's office or the emergency room. You may get a fast-acting medicine such as adenosine or verapamil. If the SVT is serious, you may have electrical cardioversion, which uses an electrical current to reset the heart rhythm.

      If you often have episodes of SVT, you may need to:

      Take medicine every day to prevent the episodes or slow your heart rate.
      Try catheter ablation. This procedure removes a tiny part of the heart that causes the problem.
      What can you do at home to prevent SVT?
      You can do a lot to prevent SVT by avoiding the things that trigger it.

      Limit alcohol to 2 drinks a day if you are a man and 1 drink a day if you are a woman.
      Limit caffeine. Even decaffeinated teas or coffee can cause SVT in some people.
      Don't smoke.
      Avoid over-the-counter decongestants, herbal remedies, diet pills, and "pep" pills.
      Don't use illegal drugs, such as cocaine, ecstasy, or methamphetamine.
      To find your triggers, keep a diary of your heart rate and your symptoms. You might find, for example, that smoking or caffeine causes your SVT episodes.
      That really sucks! For your headaches behind your eye, maybe you should take excedrin. Or go to an eye doctor. Did you ask your doc about that at all? Brown urine sounds more like a bladder infection, Maybe try drinking only water for a while, and see if that helps?? Sorry...

      Home care includes monitoring your supraventricular tachycardia and trying to slow your heart when a fast heart rate occurs. To monitor your condition, you may find it helpful to keep a diary of your heart rate and your symptoms.

      Check your pulse when you have symptoms and record the information in your diary. Be aware that if your heart is beating rapidly, it may be difficult to feel your pulse and get an accurate count of your actual heart rate.

      By keeping a diary of your heart rate and symptoms, you may be able to identify stressors-such as lack of sleep, drinking alcohol, or overeating-that trigger episodes.

      Also, it's usually important to avoid overuse of caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol and the use of illegal drugs, such as stimulants like cocaine, ecstasy, or methamphetamine. For people who are especially sensitive, even decaffeinated teas or coffee can cause supraventricular tachycardia episodes.

      Decongestants that contain stimulants should also be avoided, including oxymetazoline (such as Afrin and other brands) and pseudoephedrine (such as Sudafed and other brands). Doctors also warn against using diet pills or "pep" pills (because many contain caffeine), ephedrine, ephedra, the herb ma huang, or other stimulants.

      Your doctor may suggest that you try vagal maneuvers-such as gagging, holding your breath and bearing down, or immersing your face in cold water-to slow your heart rate. Your doctor will help you learn these procedures so you can try them at home when your fast heart rate occurs.

    blood tests polycystic ovaries?
    Hi ok im 21 getting really frustrated with doctors etc. I went to the doctors on monday as im 13 days late for my period i have very long cycles roughly 46 47 days since having the implant out in june 2009. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries but not the whole syndrome in october have been trying to conceive for 6 months. Anyway the doctor sent me for blood tests straight away on monday cause she wanted to see if i was ovulating. I did the test and just got a phone call this morning saying they got the results but wont tell me the results as they want me to repeat the test in 2 or 3 weeks time. I said to them cant i see the doctor to find out the results and she was like no they will explain everything after the second blood test. What the hell is going on? Has anyone had this before and what where your results? Im now going to be worried for 2 weeks festering on what the problem could be.

    • ANSWER:
      I have had polycystic ovarian syndrome for 15 years. There is no specific blood test that confirms the diagnosis. What they look for is if you're insulin resistant which is a symptom of the condition. They also need to test your thyroid (T3 and T4 tests) and pituitary glands for abnormalities. Quite frankly, I'd prefer an endocrinologist to do any of the gland testing as they can find out if other hormones are acting up to screw up your cycle. You can try tracking your basal body temperature to see when you're ovulating, because like the home ovulation prediction kits, the doctors tests are no more accurate and are hit/miss depending on when you test...you're just paying more because they're administering the test for you.

      The only true diagnostic is a very detailed ultrasound that shows the ovaries and fallopian tubes being congested by cysts, often called "strings of pearls" or having large fluid cysts (fibroids) or solid cysts (dermoids). You can definitely get pregnant even with PCOS (I did) as long as you're ovulating. Take heart, because even under normal circumstances, it can take 6-12 months to conceive.

      Doctors try metformin to control the insulin resistance, something that messes with your ovulation. But when I took even the lowest dose, it made me sick to my stomach. Research on your own (doctors aren't the only people who can read), try some herbal remedies. Something I took that really helped me regulate my cycles and hormones was evening primrose oil tablets. While taking that, it was the first time in 4 years after coming off the pill that I started having regular cycles. I got pregnant in the 5th month and am due around 2/19/2010.
