In brief: Thyroid treatment

The only medication for hypothyroidism is thyroid hormone that is natural because it is exactly the same to the hormone made by the human body.

Some herb shops use pig thyroid ground up but the dose you get is erratic.

In brief: Rarely

Hypothyroidism can be primary - caused by a weak thyroid gland or secondary to other hormonal problems, like a pituitary problem. Or your thyroid can become dysfunctional secondary to high insulin, estrogen or cortisol.
If you have functional hypothyroidism, this problem can possibly be fixed by fixing the underlying hormonal problem. More often, you will need to take thyroid replacement.
