Grave’s Disease

Graves’ Disease is an autoimmune disease that triggers overproduction of thyroid hormones. The disease causes a certain type of antibody to attach itself to cells in the thyroid. In layman’s terms, Grave’s Disease causes too much ‘thyroxin’, a hormone produced by the thyroid gland.

Causes and Risk Factors

The disease is said to be five times more common in women than in men. It occurs most frequently between ages 20 and 40. Risk factors include:

  • Genetics (family history)
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Other autoimmune disorders
  • Emotional stress
  • Physical stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Smoking cigarettes

Symptoms

Typical signs of Grave’s disease include:

  • nervousness
  • a fine tremor of the hands
  • weight loss
  • fatigue
  • breathlessness
  • palpitations
  • heat intolerance
  • increased metabolic rate, and
  • gatro-intestinal motility

There may be an enlarged thymus, generalized hyperplasia of the lymph nodes, blurred or double vision, localized edema, and osteoporosis.

Natural Healing Solutions

All light-blue colored stones can also prove beneficial in healing from Grave’s Disease. These stones include:

  • Dolphin Stone (Larimar)
  • Blue lace Agate
  • Blue Calcite
  • Turquoise
  • Celesite
  • Blue Chalcedony
  • Angelite, and
  • Blue Kyanite

These stones/crystals can be applied directly over the thyroid gland area (over the skin), especially during a chakra balancing session.

Magnetic therapy can be especially helpful with Grave’s Disease. A powerful small-sized gauss magnet (2,500 – 14,000 g) can be applied over the thyroid gland via adhesive and worn during the daylight hours, or 12 hours on and 12 hours off.

Detox first and then take the three recommended Dherbs.Com formulas (Thyroid, Iodine Phosphate, and Electric Greens Cell Food) as a daily maintenance regimen.

Dietary Intervention

Grave’s Disease, like all other thyroid disorders, can be managed by supplying the body with high amounts of natural iodine, also known as iodine phosphate.

Seaweeds are the highest source and concentration of organic iodine. Available seaweeds that provide high amounts of iodine include:

  • Bladderwrack
  • Irish Moss
  • Kelp
  • Dulse
  • Iceland Moss
  • Chlroella
  • Blue Green Algae
  • Spirulina, and
  • Red Marine Algae

Land herbs rich in natural iodine include:

  • White Oak Bark
  • Black Walnut Hulls, and
  • Garlic

Drink plenty of vegetable juice, especially green vegetables.

An all-raw foods and/or vegan diet will also facilitate the healing process. Abstain from eating meat, dairy products, refined grains, and refined starches as well as white table salt and white sugar.

    Q: A little more than a year ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism). I had the radioactive iodine treatment to stop my thyroid from functioning (extreme hypothyroidism). Now I take Synthroid daily. Recently I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes (HVS 2). I am interested in doing the Full Body Cleanse followed immediately by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. I do not wish to be on the prescriptions for my thyroid condition or the Herpes outbreaks. What options do I have for thyroid hormone if my thyroid doesn't work and I stop taking the Synthroid? Also, is there a way to reverse what the radioactive iodine treatment has done to my thyroid?

    A:

    First perform the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. You would also benefit from The Female Cleanse and the 10 Day Candida Cleanse. Try our Thyroid Aid formula it contains Irish Moss and Kelp, which are naturally high in iodine. Iodine is beneficial for cleansing, toning, rejuvenating, nourishing, maintaining, and strengthening the Thyroid Gland. An impaired Thyroid gland can lead to a host of negative health problems.

    Q: 10 years ago I had iodine radiation treatment, because I had an overactive thyroid, and was told that the iodine treatment would shrink my thyroid gland. After the treatment I developed hypothyroidism. I have been on Synthyroid medication every since. What herbal product do you recommend that I take for my under active thyroid? Because my thyroid is not producing what a normal gland produces.

    A:

    We recommend you first perform the Full Body Cleanse. After completing the cleanse, as a daily regimen take the Thyroid Aid and iodine Formula.  

    Please take the time to read our Thyroid Gland article.

    Q: I currently have Hashimoto's thyroiditis (autoimmune disease, diagnosed at 20 as a goiter) and am currently taking synthroid medication...I would like to discontinue this and go down an alternative healing route because I don't believe in drugs anymore....I'm interested in the thyroid supplements, especially those with iodine with seaweed. On Sunday I attended a Health Freedom Expo and saw a Chakra healer, who put his hands on my thyroid, asked me to inhale/exhale 3 times and said I was healed? Is that true? Also, muscular dystrophy runs in my family...I am scared to get tested and am afraid for my kids, and although I haven't been diagnosed with anything, I would like to know what supplements I should take to keep me healthy. I am also interested in your complete body detox cleanse--the herbalist told me that I could try the total woman cleanse.

    A:

    Dherbs Thyroid Formula, Electric Greens, and Iodine Formula will greatly help your thyroid condition!

    Start with the Full Body Cleanse, followed by Athletic Package. After finishing all cleanses, you should continue taking individual formulas. Formulas we would recommend for your issue are Brain Booster, MSM Sulfur, Vegan Protein, Athletic Boost, and Electric Greens Combo.

    Q: I write on behalf of a 30 year old female recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer(two nodules on each side of thyroid affecting voicebox),graves disease & PCOS. Current treatment for the thyroid/graves was tapazole with little or no improvement so the only option now is a thyroidectomy. She is a vegetarian, but consumes dairy and is allergic to Iodine. Reading the side effects related to the thyroidectomy is disheartening so needless to say an alternative method of treatment is being sought. Can you provide some insight or a course of action that can be taken?

    A:

    The diseases (and insight/solutions) are covered in detail in the following articles:

    Cancer: Causes and Remedies
    Thyroid Gland
    Iodine
    Dangerous Dairy

    I would recommend the person performs the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens cell Food cleanse for starters. Her diet needs to become 100% raw foods/vegan! Very important! There is help for her in the alternative world of healing!

    Q: I have to remove my entire thyroid gland in about two weeks I have done all kinds of reading what supplements do you recommend that won't take away the effects of my regular meds now that I will be taking them for life. I will also have to have a calcium supplement, multivitamin, and possibly iodine supplement?

    A:

    YOU ARE GOING TO LET DOCTORS REMOVE AN ORGAN GOD SPECIFICALLY GAVE YOU FOR A PARTICULAR FUNCTION ON YOUR BEHALF????? I HAVE NO PRODUCTS THAT WON'T INTERFERE WITH YOUR MEDICATION BECAUSE HERBS CLEANSE ALL POISONS AND YOUR MEDS ARE 100% MAN-MADE POISONS AND NOT RECOGNIZED BY GOD WHO MADE THE HERBS FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS (REVELATIONS 22:2) AND FOR MEDICINE (EZEKIEL 47:12).

    Q: I need to get the Thyroid Formula again for myself. Also I was thinking of getting the Fertility Cleanse as well. I have gotten pregnant, but I miscarried early in the pregnancy. My tubes are clear; my husband has a good sperm count and motility. My thought was that your kit couldn't hurt to try. Yet I'm not sure I need to do all of it. Meaning I don't have any yeast problems, never had a disease, etc. What is your thought on this? Just do it all anyway and treat the whole area?

    A:

    IT NEVER HURTS TO CONSUME HERBS DUE TO THEIR POTENT PROPERTIES. PLUS HERBS CLEANSE AND PROVIDE NOURISHMENT. I'D SAY GIVE IT A TRY IN ADDITION TO EVERYTHING ELSE YOU'RE DOING. IF YOU ARE MISCARRYING EARLY, THEN YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM YOUR CERVIX TO HOLD A FETUS. THERE'S A DEFECT WITH THE CERVICAL SOFTWARE.

    Q: I have a client that had her thyroid removed, the doctors have her on 3 grains of the natural...well natural for a pig. Thyroid. She couldn't sleep so they put her on ativan. Which is making her crazy (between you and I) She is still not sleeping and feeling agitated and this drug is causing her anxiety. I feel it has built up in her system and she has to dose down off of it. Do you have anything that would help her sleep? I have already suggested your thyroid blend. However, I didn't know if it could really help her as they removed her thyroid. So perhaps she does need the grains, as her body can no longer produce it on her own. I would really like to get her on natural as possible stuff so we can see what is physical and what we can work on energetically. Right now she feels like an energetic mess. Any suggestions?

    A:

    I RECOMMEND FOR HER (TO INDUCE SLEEP) OUR NERVES FORMULA (6 CAPSULES BEFORE BEDTIME) AND CALMING INSPIRANT. AND BY ALL MEANS SHE NEEDS A NATURAL THYROID FORMULA (I.E. THYRIOD FORMULA AND IODINE PHOSPHATE. IF SHE FEELS LIKE AN ENERGETIC MESS, SOME SERIOUS CHAKRA BALANCING/ALIGNMENT IS NEEDED.

    Q: What is the difference between the Iodine Phosphate Formula and Thyroid Formula?

    A:

    Iodine Phosphate is derived of 100% seaweed, and is a concentrated source of dietary Iodine. Thyroid Formula also contains sea weeds but also contains a few land-based plants, i.e. White Oak Bark and Black walnut Hulls. Iodine Phosphate formula provides chiefly iodine whereas Thyroid Formula also provides iodine but also has herbs that have an affinity for the Thyroid Gland. Iodine Phosphate is more "nutritional" in nature and Thyroid Formula is more "therapeutic" in nature.
    This is the different between the two formulas.

    Q: Will this FULL BODY DETOX help with graves disease associated with pretibialmyexademia? (swelling of the lower calfs and ankles) Please help me with this issue. My thyroid was removed (non-functional) with a radiation pill.

    A:

    It certainly will! But you have to correct your diet and lifestyle as well. Healing is wholistic! Radiation is what killed your thyroid. No organ can be dead in your body while you are alive. Doctors love to exploit people when they don't know. The energy of your thyroid is still there so feed your thyroid gland (Iodine), i.e. THYROID FORMULA.
