Very interesting. Thank you.
I am suffering from gravs disease (hyperthyroidism) for 8 years with ups and downs. The doctors keep telling me to avoid iodine. I read that the ingredients from the walnuts contain a high amount of iodine. The author says that this natural remedy will help people especially with hyperthyroidism So I am a little bit confused. Did she maybe mean ‚hypothyroidism‘ ? Since most people who are hypo have an iodine deficiency
Hello Tyson! Thank you for your question! This remedy is a walnut peel tincture, walnuts being known for their benefits on the good functioning of the tyroid. Besides iodine, walnuts also contain selenium, that is known to aid the tyroid. However, if your doctor has recommended you to avoid walnuts, maybe it’s better to look for other alternative treatments. There are a few herbal remedies for hyperthyroidism that we can recommend to you, namely: sage oil (tincture or tea), spiny cocklebur (3 tsp per day for 3 weeks with 10 days pause), young common hawthorn branches (tea or capsules), common knotgrass (2 cups of tea per day). Other helpful herbs are: linden buds, dog rose, passiflora, valerian, common motherwort. I hope we helped!
I cannot drink even a little alcohol. Is there a substitute?
Hello ellepixal! Tinctures are usually made with alcohol, but if you cannot ingest alcohol, you can try making it with vegetable glycerin for tinctures. I hope I helped!

Hello. Would this remedy be beneficial for me since I have Hashimoto’s? I’m told I shouldn’t take iodine. I was on Armour for 2 years and never felt well, even after increasing the dosage several times. I was put on Synthroid 4 months ago and still I am feeling blah and the weight is not coming off. Thank you for any advice.
Hello Ja! I personally think that it’s best to consult with your doctor or a naturopath/homeopath before starting this remedy.

Much health!?
How long can you keep the mixture in refrigerator? What’s the shelf life.
Given it’s an alcoholic tincture, it has the same shelf life as any alcoholic tincture, namely 2 years if you keep it in the fridge. Much health!
