Graves Disease

Updated February 6, 2022

Graves disease is the most common form of hyperthyroidism. Graves Disease is an autoimmune condition where the body makes antibodies to the TSH receptor, stimulating it, causing hyperthyroidsm. It is much less prevalent than hypothyroidism.

Like most autoimmune diseases, its cause, and therefore its remedy, is not clear.  However, there are cases of Graves that have been reversed by various protocols, some of which use iodine.
