No

Neck-throat
radiation and radioactive Iodine from nuclear plant melt downs are associated with increase in thyroid cancer, throat is HPV and alcohol and smoking, Many beliee in the healing and restorative powers of green teas, but herbal covers a lot of territory. Certainly, no credible evidence that it is a carcinogen or promoter.

Are there any herbal treatments for toxic thyroid adenoma?

Need medicine

Thyroid_gland
No herbal treatments will help. Methimazole is the drug that will lower thyroid hormone production. You should consider more permanent treatment, such as radioactive iodine or surgery, depending on your situation. See your Endocrinologist.

Are there any herbal supplements to help cure an underactive thyroid?

Support immunity 1st

Thyroid
Yes, but seeing a doctor who practices holistic or functional medicine is the best way to manage non-pharmacological approaches to hypothyroidism. Most hypothyroidism results from an imbalanced immune system (TH1/TH2 imbalance) and adrenal stress. In some cases, it may be corrected without medication. When using medications, consider all your options, including natural thyroid replacement.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

What kind of herbal or vegetables o lower the iodine produced by the overactive thyroid gland?

None

Thyroid_gland
If you have an overactive thyroid, your thyroid gland is taking iodine from the blood stream and using it to make thyroid hormone. The thyroid is not producing iodine. Taking more iodine can make this worse. There are no herbal supplements known to decrease overproduction of thyroid hormone in this case, just medications.

Dr. Brad Eilerman answered:

Saw Dr. For bio-identical hormones, had thyroid and labs drawn. Low in progesterone. Are there any herbal proges I can take until I get compound prep?

Biodentical hormones

Thyroid
Be wary of tests done to show a "need" for bio-identical hormone therapy. Many of these tests do not take into account appropriate variation between and within individuals. Reference ranges are set up to show that everyone has a problem in order to sell a product. Get a second opinion.
