    I tried acupuncture and chinese herbs for about 6 mos along with the thyroid inhibitor drugs. I seem to be doing quite well although I can’t say I attribute it to one or the other treatments. I would have to agree that stress is an important factor. I highly recommend an altered lifestyle that keeps the stress level down. Western doctors won’t cop to the stress aspect of the disease, it’s too nebulous, but it’s worth “calming” down. This might mean a major lifestyle change…and a re-examination of how you (collective) live your life, not necessarily easy medicine to swallow. Sometimes much harder to swallow than an iodine capsule. Good luck.
