There is no doubt that stress is a high risk factor in patients with thyroid auto-immune disorders, as found also in a research by Kung, and posted in Clinical Endocrinology in 2008. We speculate at large that stress in our lives caused all kinds of problems. And all people in fact have stress in their lives! However, the above and some other researchers discovered that patients with Graves’ disease experienced greater psychological stress and adverse events prior to the onset of the disease. They also concluded that as stress may change the immune system (no surprise!), it could play an important role in precipitating the disease in patients predisposed to auto-immune thyroid disorders- namely Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s.
So speaking, stress might be causing your thyroid problems to a big extend but what can you do to stop that stress madness? Can you subtract the unnecessary and add just the meaningful to achieve peace of mind, tranquility, harmony and better health? (not necessarily in that order!).
I’ve discovered a few things that may help you figure it out and simplify your life!

4 Methods that can improve your thyroid antibodies, strengthen the immune system and help Graves’ disease and Hyperthyroidism symptoms
Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s, Rheumatoid arthritis, Addison disease, Diabetes Type 1, Lupus etc. are disorders of the auto-immune system. One of the differences between them is that they affect different organs. Many people suffering from Graves’ disease or Hashimoto’s disease have a compromised immune system but they wrongly target the thyroid itself through RAI treatment and thyroid surgery. The thyroid is the victim, not the offender!
But is there a way to help and treat the immune system in such a way that the thyroid will heal itself and reverse the autoimmune condition, regardless if it is Graves’ disease or Hashimoto’s? It happens there is! I’ve listed 4 methods that I know and researched (some of them I even tried) that help the immune system to recover, check for details below:
