Supplements and herbs can have a great effect on the way you feel when you are being treated for Grave’s disease. They can also have a positive impact on your health, in general. So, I want to talk with you about the ten best herbs and supplements for Grave’s disease today.
This is an interesting one. People with Grave’s disease actually have a greater need for folate, but also have a greater sensitivity to folic acid. Most folks can get away with the folic acid we get from processed foods and other parts of our diet, but for those with Grave’s disease it can actually be harmful.
Methylfolate can be found in more progressive multivitamins that we might be able to find and can help us deal with our increased sensitivity to folic acids.
Your body needs more and your body loses more when you have Grave’s disease. So many people are actually already deficient in magnesium, so if you did not already have enough now you are really in trouble.
The other wrinkle is that Grave’s side effects actually mimic the side effects of a magnesium deficiency. Even a couple hundred milligrams of magnesium can be a game-changer for your body, in giving it what it needs.
This is one of the omega-3 fats that we can benefit from having in our bodies. We get this from fish oil, and it can help protect and reverse damage that we have to the brain.
One of the problems with Grave’s disease is that it can cause faster wear and tear on the brain cells. EPA can actually help to reverse that, and it can also be cardioprotective for the heart, at the same time.
4. Vitamin D
Having enough, but not too much, vitamin D is an important step in the process of Grave’s reversal.
Grave’s disease affects all parts of your body, and that’s because that is what the thyroid does – it plays such an important role in your entire body, it touches almost every aspect of it. Molybdenum is actually critical for liver function, which is important when you are in the Grave’s state.
