Reason for high T3 (liothyronine)?: If you have hyperthyroidism from grave's disease there really isn't a natural way to bring thyroid hormone levels down. If you want to avoid medication, that will be difficult because it isn't safe to be hyperthyroid. Even if you had your thyroid surgically removed or ablated by radioactive iodine you would still need to take medicine to replace your thyroid hormone under those circumstances.
