Here are some of my patients with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions who have benefited from following a natural treatment protocol.

I was diagnosed with “hyperthyroidism with no known cause” at age 32. I had experienced all of the typical hyperthyroid symptoms, with heart palpitations finally getting me in to see my doctor. I was then put on the anti-thyroid drug, methimazole. It was 5 years later when my endocrinologist asked me if I was ready for a radioactive iodine treatment to destroy part of my thyroid. Right then, I knew I had to find another solution. I didn’t want to permanently destroy my thyroid and I didn’t want to be on medication for life either. The medication did an okay job of masking my symptoms, but it worried me that it was only a mask. I found hope in Dr. Osansky’s approach to try to figure out the underlying causes that were keeping my thyroid overactive. In my case, he helped me figure out that a lot of my issues were gut related. After I started a whole foods diet, cut out the foods that caused irritation, started Dr. Osansky’s supplement recommendation and did a few other lifestyle changes, I received great results. I felt so relieved and happy that I finally figured me out! My blood tests became normal and now I am off my anti-thyroid medication and doing well. Dr. Osansky gave me the tools I needed to help me restore my health. I would definitely recommend trying a natural approach to achieving better health. The effort I put forth paid off in a big way. I now have a better understanding of my body, adapted to a healthier lifestyle for my family and I, and I have the tools and knowledge to go forth healthy and happy without medication.

Since following the natural treatment protocol I have all of the energy that I had before Graves’ Disease, and not being on the meds feel wonderful. Being able to do all of the things that I used to do is fantastic, as we all take so many things for granted in life, and our health/body is very sensitive so what we feed it is so important, good in good out. Little by little my blood work came back to the normal range (within 4 to 6 months) but you have to follow the protocol.

When I first began, I was at my wit’s end. I was about a year into my disease, and had already hired and fired two other holistic doctors. Although they both did help me greatly by cleaning up my diet and lifestyle, their methods did not help my Graves’ disease, so I had to keep searching. That’s when a simple internet search found Dr. Eric. Just the fact that he had Graves’ disease himself and is now free of it, filled me with so much hope, that I just knew he was going to be the one to give me back my health for good. I think it’s very important to find the right holistic doctor. There are so many out there that just aren’t thorough, or knowledgeable enough. Dr. Eric has chosen to specialize in one area, and because of that, he is able to help people regain their lives through knowledge and experience.

Immediately I began feeling better. My heart palpitations which were of the most concern began to decrease, as well as the other symptoms. It took a few months, but there were some days where it felt like I had no disease at all. I had to remind myself to keep eating right, and following the protocol, and to not let my guard down. It was such a freeing experience to finally have someone who knows what to do behind me, and watching over me. Even though he was 3000 miles away, I never felt like I was without a safety net. My blood tests improved to the point that I am now free of Graves’ disease. It is completely gone, and now I know why I was sick and how to stay healthy. I had leaky gut from a previous candida infection that wreaked havoc on my digestive system, and ultimately my whole being. I killed off the candida, and treated the leaky gut and Graves’ disease at the same time. I now have my health, and it’s not going anywhere ever again!!! The best part? My doctors said it was impossible to get rid of!! And I did!!!

I was diagnosed with Graves’ Disease, and I began to notice changes in my symptoms pretty quickly after beginning the natural treatment protocol. After the first month my palpitations and anxiety type symptoms almost disappeared and I was sleeping better at night. The second month results were even better. I felt so good that I began tapering off my antidepressant medication that I had been taking for years. After the third month all of the symptoms that I had experienced prior were no longer present. My energy levels were better than they had been in a year and my thyroid lab results were within the normal range.

When I first began working with Dr. Eric some of the symptoms I experienced included a rapid heartbeat, dizziness, irritability, no energy, weight loss for no reason from 98 lbs to 87 lbs, overly sensitive, crying without any reason, difficulty sleeping, feeling hot most of the time even in room temperature, mood swings, eyes protrusion, stress level was high. The first 3-6 months of faithfully following the natural treatment protocol, I started to see & feel the improvement in my condition. And, as the months progressed, my whole lifestyle changed, my food intake changed to gluten-free & healthier, mostly organic foods, my exercise routine (been doing it more frequently & creatively), & my stress level gradually went down through meditating, breathing exercise, & thinking more positively. Admittedly, at first, it was very hard on me, but I did the best I can & followed doctor’s recommendations. Through these changes, along with the supplements combined, thankfully, at present, my heartbeat is back to normal, I feel more relaxed, my energy is back to normal (& mostly feel more invigorated than ever), I sleep very well, my body temperature is back to its normal state, weight ranges from 100-102 lbs, eyes’ protrusion almost back to normal size, and I’m more optimistic than ever before. My family doctor, Dr. Snell, who is outstanding as well, told me most people could not stand the symptoms of Graves Disease so they receive the RAI. What Dr. Osansky did was to prescribe a protocol that allowed me to avoid the Graves Disease symptoms so I could heal. The symptoms were horrible and I felt trapped with RAI as the only alternative. We prayed about this situation and found Dr. Osansky who provided a natural alternative which allowed me to keep my thyroid gland and lead a normal life.

Through my own research, I discovered that there are many side effects to radioactive iodine treatment. However, every visit to the endocrinologist ended with them stating that this was the only treatment for Graves Disease. In fact, one endocrinologist yelled at me and stated that I had to have the procedure done by November because of the dangerous side effects of the medication. I found Dr. Osansky’s website and read all his articles. I was immediately convinced that he could help me because one of his articles described his symptoms and it seemed as though he was describing my symptoms. I wanted a doctor who had this experience and could tell me what to expect.

Since starting the natural protocol, I feel full of energy. I look forward to seeing my students instead of dreading each day. My eating habits have totally changed. I can actually function when I get home. I used to sleep during the two week Christmas holidays, but this year I actually painted, cleaned and exercised. It has truly been a lifestyle change. My blood tests show tremendous improvement. In fact the same endocrinologist who yelled at me sent me a letter indicating that I should immediately start lowering the Methimazole.

I have hyperthyroidism and felt terrible when I first started the treatment. I had no energy and all I wanted to do was sleep all of the time. After beginning treatment I feel great and have more energy, and I feel better than I felt since my early 20s. And I’m sleeping again throughout the night. I was very skeptical about natural treatment methods at first. But I’m almost back to normal again and I feel great, and I’m glad I made the decision to try the natural protocol. I couldn’t have made a better decision. I’m so thankful for Dr. Osansky because he really changed my life. Natural is the way to go.

I saw Dr. Osansky for a hyperactive thyroid/Graves Disease, and suffered from this for over five years before I found Dr. Osansky. At first I did not notice any changes, as I had heart palpitations which caused me to wake up at night and I couldn’t go back to sleep. After only a few weeks of following Dr. Osansky’s suggestions I began to sleep better, and have gained back my energy and strength. My blood test results normalized, even though my endocrinologist told me when he first saw me that nothing I ate or did would change my condition, I would not let him schedule having my thyroid gland destroyed. Even when I had “storms”, I said “no” to this procedure. I kept searching for help from naturopathic doctors until my registered dietician friend gave me Dr. Osansky’s webpage. My endocrinologist sent me a letter saying he does not need to test my blood for a year unless I have any problems. I wish I had found Dr. Osansky sooner!

I was diagnosed with Graves’ Disease in the fall of 2009. I was experiencing the classic syptoms. Extreme anxiety, trouble concentrating, memory difficulties, fatigue, hair loss, shaking hands (tremors), jiggly feeling on inside, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, heartbeat thudding in ears, not sleeping well among others. Since following the natural treatment protocol ALL of the symptoms have subsided except for the hair loss! I feel great now. I started the supplements Dr. Osansky recommended in March of 2011 and went on a maintenance plan in January 2012. I have also made major changes in my eating and lifestyle habits per Dr. Eric’s recocmmendations. My TSH, T3, and T4 are all now in the proper ranges as well as my blood pressur returning to normal and my pulse rate dropping to an acceptable range. I can’t recommend strongly enough that anyone with Graves’ Disease give this method a try. Dr. Eric has been very helpful, informative, concerned for my health, and great to work with. I attribute my good health to his expertise.
