I have excessive sweating is there a home remedy for this thing they call hyperthyroidism?

To effectively treat hyperthyroidism, it is essential to understand the disease as well as its primary causes. Hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland, which is a small butterfly shaped organ located in the neck and just in front of the Adam's apple, produces excessive amounts of the thyroid hormones. The hormones secreted by the thyroid gland are released into the bloodstream and interact with almost all the cells in the body, urging them to increase their metabolic activity. An unusually high level of thyroid hormone can cause the metabolism rate of the body to be dangerously high. In order to produce these essential hormones for the body, the thyroid needs to absorb a significant amount of iodine from consumed food. The thyroid gland is the only iodine absorbing gland in the entire human body, so if it is affected or not working properly, the body is not able to absorb any amount of iodine. Some of the most common symptoms of the condition include an increased heart rate and rate of breathing, more efficient functioning of the skeletal muscles as well as an increased use of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. The brain will constantly monitor the level of thyroid hormones in the blood and send signals to the pituitary gland - located near the brain that helps control the production of thyroid hormones. The condition is extremely common and is known to affect about 500,000 new individuals in the United States of America alone.

In order to control the condition and effectively treat it, one must strictly avoid any intake of nicotine, alcohol as well as carbonated water or junk foods. Try increasing your consumption of foods like broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage as they tend to lower down the functioning of the thyroid gland. While one of the most significant signs of hyperthyroidism is a significant loss of weight, it is common for a person that has successfully treated the condition to gain significant amounts of weight. The most effective way to treat the condition is to perform a complete cleansing of the system followed by a well balanced diet. It is highly recommended that you start your diet with juices made from apple, pineapple and grapes every two or three hours between 8 am and 8 pm throughout the course of the day for about five days. You should also make it a point to clean your bowels daily. You can ensure this by drinking large amounts of warm water. After the five day juice fast, you should try limiting your food intake to purely fruits and milk of three meals at five hourly intervals. You can then start to consume a healthy amount of other foods including seeds, grains, nuts, vegetables and fruits.
