Hyperthyroidism and Grave’s Disease

Grave’s Disease is not given enough attention in social media. So, I decided to do a more basic explanation of what to do if you were diagnosed with hyperthyroidism.

Unfortunately, conventional medicine treats different autoimmune diseases (presentations) as if there were completely different issues with unknown causes (unknown etiology). Functional medicine considers different root causes and considers the intestinal permeability (aka “leaky gut”) as one of the important causes/symptoms of any autoimmune disease.

To start addressing it, usually, I recommend gluten- and dairy-free diets. See my explanation below.
