thyroid and Noni juice
I have been on Levothyroxine for about 5 months now. I just developed my hypothyroid problem shortly after having my 5th child. (I have other problems as well: sleeping problems, minor hair loss, brittle nails, achy muscles at times, and fatigue).I hate the thought of being on medication the rest of my life. They say my level is normal now as long as I stay on my med. Now, for Noni juice. I've recently read about some testimonies how some people who had thyroid problems were cured with Noni juice and do not take meds anymore. I think I'm going to start taking Noni juice, but don't know if I should go ahead and just let the Noni juice do it's thing and stop my meds..see how it works. If I continue on my meds when taking the Noni, then I wonder how it will affect my levels. Will it get my levels off balance to the point where then I will know I can stop my meds or maybe I should stay on the meds at first then after taking the Noni for a while then stop the meds and see if the Noni juice by itself will control my thyroid level.Has anyone had any experience with Noni juice and thyroid?????? Please help.

Sometimes the hypothyroidism that follows childbirth can go into remission, and meds can be reduced or stopped; but usually, the hypo returns later in life. Menopause is often a time when that happens.

There is no one miracle food or drink that will cure Hashimoto's disease. All the reputable health food sites I've looked at say the best treatment for it is prescription thyroid hormone replacement therapy. They claim that their products will help "support" the thyroid -- whatever that means -- during medical treatment. But don't expect a cure from any of those products.

Trust me. There are a lot of people who stop by this board who are begging their doctors for treatment who are refused it. If you are getting good care, and have seen some improvement with the meds, it wouldn't be wise to give that up.

I tried Noni for a while and never noticed any change in how I felt or how my thyroid worked. I do know someone who tried it with good results for other things but not thyroid.
The only way you will know for sure is to try it and then get bloodwork done every few weeks to see how or if it affects your levels.
