Hyperthyroidism (over activity of the thyroid gland) is where the gland is producing excess amounts of the two main thyroid hormones. The result is that many of the body's processes such as the heart rate speed up. It tends to run in families and the condition is more common in women than in men.

Weight loss, fatigue, increased appetite, irritability, goiter, sweating, sensitivity to heat and bulging eyes are all symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Because of the increase in the metabolic rate of people with this condition they burn calories and use vital nutrients much faster than normal.

A swollen neck due to an enlargement of the thyroid gland is known as goiter. The swelling is usually soft although it may be hard and lumpy. It will most times be accompanied by some of the various symptoms described above.

If you suffer from this condition you must limit nicotine, alcohol and caffeine (found in tea, coffee, colas and plain chocolate). Doing this will reduce the symptoms as they can all raise the metabolic rate. Vital is your diet. You should have a nutrient rich diet daily. Iodine rich foods may help. Avoid foods such as raw cage, turnips and swedes as they inhibit the body's ability to use iodine in the production of thyroid hormones.

To replace muscle tissue that has been lost you will need additional protein in the form of fish and eggs for example. Essential for the metabolism of extra carbohydrates and protein is ample intake of vitamin B. This can be found in whole grains, potatoes and diary products.

Natural hyperthyroidism treatment will enable you to feel healthy fast and resume living with no stress and no surgery.
